After leading the entire Premier League season until the final few weeks of the season, Arsenal will be determined to hit the ground running this pre-season in order to ensure they are in tip-top shape to launch another assault on the league title next season.
Mikel Arteta has been focused on bringing in some new players this summer to bolster his squad after injuries derailed them last season. Their main target this summer is Declan Rice and according to recent reports, the deal is on the verge of being completed. Having their primary target through the door in time for pre-season is a great result and Arsenal fans will be keen to watch their new man in action this summer.
Another player who could link up with the Arsenal squad in time for pre-season training is Kai Havertz. The Chelsea forward has been the subject of a £65m bid, one that is believed to have been accepted. Arteta will be banking on the German to add more goals to his team and could make his debut for the club this pre-season.
With excitement building, here is everything you need to know about Arsenal's summer schedule.

How to watch Arsenal's pre-season matches
Arsenal are quite unique in how they allow supporters to watch their pre-season matches. While the likes of Liverpool and Manchester United have their own in-house television channels, Arsenal instead charge their fans on a match-by-match basis for pre-season games.
Using the Arsenal PPV service, fans are able to pay for the game of their choosing in the days leading up to the match. In order to buy a matchday pass, fans need to log into the Arsenal website and buy one before kick-off. They will then be able to stream the game live on the website or the Arsenal mobile phone app.
If fans don't want to pay to watch the pre-season games, then the club typically uploads extended highlights to their YouTube channel for all games shortly after the full-time whistle.
