English Premier League giants Arsenal will undertake a tour of Japan during their next pre-season.

Reports suggest that negotiations between the North London club and Japanese football officials are well under way with tentative dates of early-to-mid August being mooted.

English clubs often go on tours in between seasons to promote themselves to foreign regions but Arsenal are rarely involved in these money-making sojourns, however, it appears that manager Arsene Wenger is ready to take his squad back to his old haunts.

The Frenchman managed J-League club Nagoya Grampus in 1995 and 1996 before taking the reins at Arsenal and there is plenty of interest in the club from Japanese football fans.

The tour is expected to net the Emirates Stadium club around $AUD24.2million (£15million).
