Former Manchester United midfielder Shinji Kagawa is happy to have met his friend and Schalke defender Atsuto Uchida before Saturday’s derby.
On Saturday, two players already linked to the Gunners faced up against each other, as the Ivory Coast met Japan in the second Group C game.
If Arsenal are smart in the transfer market this summer, and keep all their top players at the club, they could be champions next May.
The World Cup is not only football's biggest tournament, but it also serves as a shop window for players to impress onlooking clubs.
Arsenal have reportedly turned to Schalke’s Japanese right-back Atsuto Uchida as they bid to replace the out-going Bacary Sagna.
Bacary Sagna appears set to depart Arsenal, and now Arsene Wenger is on the lookout for a new right-back.
