  • Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck attempts to cool off during a training session in Shanghai

It has been reported that Chelsea, Juventus, Arsenal and Liverpool are all interested in submitting an offer for the attacking midfielder who can also operate as a striker, but Rummenigge said a deal won't happen because the player "is a ideal fit for Bayern".

"Both the club and Thomas agree on the assessment of last season - it wasn't a good one", Bayern CEO Rummenigge told Sport Bild. "But maybe Bayern also dropped a bit". "There is no discussion about this".

"But that is not a problem either".

The German champions were made to pay for their profligacy in the closing minutes as Arsenal mounted a rare counter from which Iwobi secured them a surprise equaliser against a side that had hammered them 5-1 in each of their last three meetings.

The 27-year-old striker has been a key member of the Bayern Munich team since making his debut under Louis van Gaal.

"Of course we didn't buy James to replace Thomas Muller", he said.


Whether or Lacazette is a replacement for Alexis Sanchez or not, it's obvious the ex-Lyon man has the ability to bring a whole new dimension to the Gunners' frontline next season. He can play on the right or the left and so he can replace [Arjen] Robben or [Franck] Ribery.

This was the first game in China for both teams as part of the International Champions Cup, with Arsenal playing Chelsea in Beijing on Saturday while Bayern travel to Shenzhen to play AC Milan.

"Of course we didn't buy James to replace Thomas Muller".

"Sometimes I put him as a midfielder so he can replace [Corentin] Tolisso and [Arturo] Vidal".

Liverpool beat Crystal Palace 2-0 in the other game, thanks to goals b y Dominic Solanke and Divock Origi.
