The Daily Mail says Arsenal are exploring the idea of a pre-season tour in the USA ahead of next season.

The club have focused their attentions on the Far East market in recent summers, but their next target is to expand the Arsenal brand across the Atlantic.

The tour is likely to include a clash against Denver-based MLS side Colorado Rapids, who are owned by the Gunners' majority shareholder Stan Kroenke.
