Arsenal will face Lyon and VfL Wolfsburg, along with a possible grudge match with Stoke during their build-up to the 2015/16 Premier League season.

Arsene Wenger's side begin their pre-season with a fixture against a Singapore Select XI at the Barclays Asia Cup in Singapore on Wednesday 15 July. They will then face either Everton or Mark Hughes's Potters in the final or third-place playoff on Saturday 18 July.

The following weekend the Gunners will return home for the eighth edition of the Emirates Cup, hoping to build on their three previous tournament victories. There, Arsenal will play Lyon on Saturday 25 July, before hosting VfL Wolfsburg the following day.


While the Gunners have been linked with moves for the likes of Raheem Sterling, Petr Cech and James Milner in the summer transfer window, Wenger has played down the prospects of marquee signings to rival recent moves for Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez. However, these fixtures will give fans the chance to run the rule over any new acquisitions before another bid for the Premier League title.
