Emery told to sign "a leader" if he plans to compete

Lucas Torreira Joins Arsenal Training For The First Time

The Spaniard told reporters after overseeing a 2-0 friendly victory over Lazio in Stockholm: "My focus is on the first match and preparing, and not for the window and the possibility to sign another player".

It has been a tough pre-season for the right back as the Spanish global tries to impress the new Arsenal manager so that Stephan Lichtsteiner doesn't take over his position in the upcoming season.

Torreira's quality was clear from the start, with his discipline in front of the back four, tidiness in possession and his urgency to reclaim possession all standing out during the opening period.

State of play at Arsenal: The continuity club has undergone vast change. Join the Pain In The Arsenal team!

Arsenal have been one of the busiest Premier League clubs this summer following the appointment of Emery as Arsene Wenger's permanent replacement.

Sead Kolasinac has been ruled out for two months with a knee injury and Nacho Monreal isn't named in the squad so Ainsley Maitland-Niles starts at left-back tonight.

Chelsea will face Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday in the Community Shield before another International Champions Cup match, against French side Lyon, at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday.

Alex Iwobi's introduction on 65 minutes brought fresh urgency to Arsenal, and the Nigeria global had shots saved by both by Caballero and his replacement Marcin Bulka. "Hopefully that won't take away from the attacking side of and he will find a balance". Luis Alberto capitalised on a mix-up in the Arsenal defence and his flighted chip clipped the cross-bar.

Yet with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan beginning a first full season in London and Mesut Ozil's attention perhaps focused by his global retirement, Arsenal have the talent if they can ally it with consistency and structure. Yet if that bodes well, Aubameyang may be used on the left if Alexandre Lacazette is the main striker.
