RC Lens have announced that they’ll face Arsenal in a pre-season fixture in mid-July.
On their website the Ligue Un outfit reveal they’ll play the Gunners on July 22nd at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis, kick off at 8pm local time.
It may well be that this game was arranged as part of the deal that saw Lens youngsters Yassin Fortune and Jeff Reine-Adelaide join the club last summer. It was suggested at the time that a friendly was part of the negotiations, and so it appears to be the case.
Arsenal’s pre-season is full of travel, with a trip to the USA at the end of July, before friendlies against Man City and Viking FK in Scandinavia in August.
Jeff we can.
