Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog.

In this episode James and I discuss the final game of pre-season, looking first at the positive contributions from new signings Albert Sambi Lokonga and Ben White, as well as the encouraging return of Bukayo Saka. We talk about pre-season as a whole, share some worries about the striker situation, and assess the squad and the gaps in it as we head towards a new Premier League campaign. There’s lots of transfer talk, including some about James Maddison, plus listener questions about Edu, realistic expectations for the season Mikel Arteta should delivery, the departure of Joe Willock, Reiss Nelson and Eddie Nketiah, and loads more besides.
