Abou Diaby, who had been in serious talks with the Baggies about a move, has decided to head back to France to link up with Marseille on a free.

After an injury-riddled tenure at Arsenal, the one-time France international was something of a low-risk, big-reward play on the transfer market for second tier teams this summer. With West Brom the closest to making a deal in England, Abou Diaby decided he would head back to France instead. Tony Pulis is definitely in need of squad depth at all positions even after the acquisition of James Chester so losing out on Diaby, speculative thought the move might have been, is at least a minor blow.

With his deal set to expire at the end of the season, Theo Walcott has reportedly agreed to a new deal at Arsenal.

The talent has always been there but the health hasn't been consistent. Still, Arsenal were interested in signing Theo Walcott to a long term extension and it appears to have happened. If Walcott can return to the form that saw him score 14 goals and provide 10 assists in 2012-13 then the rumored £100,000-a-week, four-year deal will look like a bargain. If he continues to be injured frequently then it will look a little less wise.

Theo Walcott fired Arsenal to a 1-0 win over Wolfsburg and a first Emirates Cup title since 2010.

The Emirates Cup is a largely meaningless pre-season trophy but the quality of the sides Arsenal played, Lyon and Wolfsburg, isn't meaningless. That they kept two clean sheets and got two wins while showing off a depth of healthy players at almost all positions should have Arsenal supporters excited for the upcoming season. Petr Cech got his first home start and Mesut Ozil continued his fine pre-season form. Walcott was the man of the match though with a number of chances on both sides of halftime.

Arsenal got six goals from six different players and they were all worth watching as the Gunners got off to a scorching start in their yearly pre-season tournament with a 6-0 win over Lyon.

Olivier Giroud, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Alex Iwobi, Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil, and Santi Cazorla all put their names on the score sheet and it could have been more with Chuba Akpom and Theo Walcott enjoying good late chances as well. Pre-season hopes will be high after Arsenal looked excellent in destroying a quality opponent with both teams featuring strong line-ups. Ozil and Giroud shared man of the match honors with two assists each along with their goals. Aaron Ramsey also contributed an assist in addition to his goal.

Arsenal starters vs Lyon: Martinez, Debuchy, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs, Coquelin, Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Iwobi, Giroud

The only big news here is Debuchy over Bellerin but with another match tomorrow you probably shouldn't read anything into it. Wilshere is out with an illness.

Arsene Wenger has reassured the Polish goalkeeper that he has a future at the North London club as he leaves for a loan in Italy at Roma for next season.

Petr Cech certainly isn't a long term answer for Arsenal in the net so the notion that Szczesny could reclaim the number one shirt at the Emirates in a few seasons holds water. The loan to Roma could be a great chance for Szczesny to reset his value and return to the upward trajectory he was on earlier in his career. Starting regularly in Rome should keep Szczesny in the starting line-up for Poland as well. With Poland currently leading their Euro2016 qualifying group he could get a great stage to show off any improvement in Rome next summer.

Joel Campbell was extremely dangerous in Costa Rica's 1-0 loss to Mexico in the Gold Cup.

Campbell was once again fantastic for his country but he failed to score and Costa Rica were ultimately knocked out of the Gold Cup. He had a good strike in the 53rd minute that ended up sailing over the bar and also had a great run towards the end of the match where his shot was barely saved by goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa. The match was decided on a 120th minute penalty which was shown to be extremely controversial by replays. Mexico will face Panama in the semi-final in what seems to be an easy matchup for them.

Petr Cech was fantastic in Arsenal's win over Everton in the Barclays Asia Trophy Final.

Arsenal started with a really strong squad in what could very well resemble their week one lineup. They outplayed Everton the whole way and were in full control by the 62nd minute, when they were 3-0 up with goals from Theo Walcott, Santi Cazorla, and Mesut Ozil. They enjoyed 53% possession and had 18 shots to Everton's six. The Toffees were able to return a goal in the 75th minute via Ross Barkley, but they never threatened Arsenal. This Gunner team looks very dangerous when healthy and Chelsea will have their hands full in their title defense.

Arsenal right back Hector Bellerin is set to cash in on his new-found status as a starter with Arsenal ready to sign him to a long term extension.

The Spanish right back was one of the revelations of last season after taking over for the frequently-injured Mathieu Debuchy in the Gunners' defense. The 20-year-old has denied that he is thinking about a move back to Barcelona where he played as a youngster and says he is looking to stay at Arsenal for the long term. Arsenal supporters will breathe a sigh of relief when the right back's signature is affixed to a new contract.

Eredivisie side Ajax have confirmed that Arsenal striker Yaya Sanogo has joined the club as part of a season long loan deal.

Sanogo arrived at the Emirates back in 2013 as a French youth international – under 20s – with a promising future but injury and lack of first team opportunities have restricted his development in recent times. A move to Crystal Palace on-loan in January returned just 3 PL starts and the decision was taken to send Sanogo out again as Wenger believes "he needs to play," to fulfil any potential. With regular football plus the opportunity of Champions League experience long-time admirer Frank de Boer sees this chance as the perfect platform to help Sanogo "make the next step." His departure leaves the Gunners’ a little lightweight upfront although Theo Walcott will have a more prominent role to play having fully recovered from knee surgery.

Chuba Akpom scored three and Jack Wilshere scored the other and chipped in an assist as Arsenal beat a Singapore XI in their first competitive match of the pre-season.

With supporters clamoring for another forward, Chuba Akpom started the process of putting his name forward for more playing time. A Singapore XI certainly isn't Manchester United or Chelsea but he has to start somewhere and he did so in style. Jack Wilshere continued the great form that he showed for England in Euro qualifying earlier in the summer. Arsenal will take a step up in level of competition on Saturday with a match against Everton at Singapore Stadium.

Arsenal have agreed to a new contract with Brazilian Wellington Silva and will now reportedly look to send him out on loan somewhere in England.

Despite being at the club since 2011, Silva is something of an unknown quantity for Arsenal supporters. Due to work permit issues, he has been on loan in Spain with a number of clubs since his signing. Still only 22-years-old, Arsenal will look to take advantage of the fact that Silva has received his Spanish citizenship and the right to work anywhere in Europe that comes with it and loan him out either in the Championship or the Premier League.

Tomas Rosicky will not be ready for the start of the new season after Arsene Wenger confirmed the 34 year-old won't train for another 4/5 weeks after picking up a knee injury.

Rosicky suffered the problem while playing in a Euro 2016 qualifying match for the Czech Republic in Iceland and despite Wenger initially claiming the injury was only minor it now seems that the midfielder is unlikely to feature until September. Rosicky will be no-more than a squad player if Arsenal can keep their treatment room clear of any serious issues and Wenger will be hoping the likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jack Wilshere and Mikel Arteta can remain fully fit following an injury ravaged 2014/15 campaign.

Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Alexis Sanchez will not return to the club until 3rd August, 2015 and therefore the Chilean will miss the season opener when West Ham visit the Emirates.

Sanchez has been given additional time-off following his involvement in this summers’ Copa America and won’t be ready for at least 2/3 weeks. A place in the squad for the trip to Selhurst Park in GW2 is possible with last seasons’ Player of the Year returning to full action against Liverpool the following weekend. Wenger also confirmed that Danny Welbeck should be ready for the beginning of August with the forward expected to play in the Emirates Cup at the end of July. However the news regarding Tomas Rosicky was not so positive with the 34 year-old out for at least a month due to a knee injury.

Dutch paper De Telegraaf are reporting that Arsenal forward Yaya Sanogo is headed to Ajax on loan for the upcoming season.

Following a disappointing season on loan at Loftus Road, Yaya Sanogo is going to try a different route to gaining the experience he needs to see if he can break into the first team at Arsenal. His next loan move sees him take a step back to the Eredivisie in hopes that the playing time will see him take two steps forward in the long run. Maybe Gunners legend Dennis Bergkamp, on the coaching staff at Ajax, can get the best out of Sanogo.
