Arsenal new signing Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasnic will be in action for the first time in their Arsenal shirt against Sydney FC on Thursday.
The Gunners broke their transfer record in signing the Lacazette from Lyon this summer and got Kolasnic on a free transfer from Schalke 04.
Arsene Wenger confirmed both players will make their debut for the team on Thursday night.
“Lacazette will make his debut here, yes,” said Arsene Wenger after arriving in Sydney. “On Thursday night he will certainly play a part in the game and in the other game as well. In the two games he will take part.
“We play football based on movement, technical qualities and mobility, and I believe that both of the new signings can integrate well into the team.
“One is a defender who can play on the flank and centrally, and one is a striker with a very good goalscoring record, so I believe that they are great additions to the team. It’s a good opportunity as well to have a first look at how well and how quickly they will integrate with the way we want to play.”
