This factor could see the 27-year-old up his performances compared to his recent displays at Arsenal and see his goal return noticeably improved if signed by the Magpies.

The Gunners are preparing for their first campaign under Emery who has taken the hot seat after Arsene Wenger stepped down at the end of last season. He knows he's at a big club, and has a lot of pressure, but I think he has a big character and spirit.

The Spanish gaffer confirmed on Monday that Iwobi, as well as two other 2018 World Cup stars, Mesut Ozil of Germany and Egyptian midfielder, Mohamed Elneny, who were also both eliminated at the group stage, will play a full part in the Singapore tour.

Emery declared: "All the players are the same".

Israel has repeatedly said it will not allow Iran to establish a permanent military presence on its doorstep in neighboring Syria. President Donald Trump might announce such a compromise deal at their scheduled summit on July 16 in Helsinki, Finland.

"All the players are the same", Emery said via the Gunners' official website. "He's coming with us to Singapore the first day", the Spaniard added. Past year was hard for everyone, not only Mesut.

Emery did contact Nzonzi following France's World Cup success, congratulating him for his efforts.

The new chief will face sterner tests against Atletico Madrid and PSG in a pre-season tournament in Singapore next week. They have an advantage this summer, however, in that relatively few key players have been involved in the latter rounds of the World Cup and most of the squad will have had the rare luxury of a complete pre-season.

Emery oversaw an 8-0 win over Boreham Wood on the weekend and was able to get a good look at new signings Sokratis Papastathopoulous and Matteo Guendouzi.
