Arsenal will travel to the United States this summer for a pre-season friendly tournament in Orlando.
The Gunners have announced that they will face Serie A champion Inter Milan on July 25 in the Florida Cup, with fellow Premier League side Everton and Colombian team Millonarios also involved in the competition.
