Mikel Arteta’s men will face Lyon and AC Milan in the mini-tournament, with Liverpool also involved, although the two English sides will not play each other.

Arsenal take on the French side on December 8, before challenging the 2021/22 Scudetto winners five days later.

And according to the Italian journalist Gianluca Di MarzioArsenal next face the Old Lady in the Emirates on December 17.

The match would take place on the eve of the World Cup final in Qatar.

It would be Arsenal’s last warm-up game before returning to top-flight action against West Ham on Boxing Day.

The friendly could see long-term target Dusan Vlahovic finally bow out at the Emirates after rejecting the chance to join the club in January.

He instead opted to join Juve from Fiorentina, where he said he only had eyes for the Turin outfit.

Vlahovic remarked: “Maybe my agent knows [about Arsenal’s offer] but I never told anyone about it.

“I only had one club in mind because Juventus is Juventus. There’s nothing else to say. And now I feel honored to receive this shirt. It’s amazing every time time I put it on.

“I definitely identify with their DNA. The personality of Juventus coincides with my personality.

“When you come here, you never give up, you fight all the time, you make sacrifices. That was definitely what I was looking for.

But Vlahovic is currently on duty for the World Cup with Serbia in Qatar, although his country has a huge task to even get out of their squad.

In what is one of the toughest groups of the world tournament, Serbia will face Brazil, Switzerland and Cameroon.

Should Serbia leave the competition early, Juve boss Massimiliano Allegri could decide to bring him back to the club early to prepare for the second half of the campaign.
