Arsene Wenger's Arsenal will participate in the Barclays Asia Trophy in Singapore along with Stoke City, Everton and a Singapore Select XI on July 15 and July 18.

Thanathip Sawangsaeng, spokesman of the Thai Premier League, said Arsenal representatives had contacted the TPL for the Gunners to play against a TPL All-Star team on July 20.

"Details will be finalised soon," Thanathip said.

Arsenal are currently third in the Premier League and have reached the FA Cup semi-finals. They were knocked out in the last 16 of the Champions League on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Liverpool have added a fixture against a Malaysian XI after the club's pre-season tour to Australia in July.

The Reds last played in Kuala Lumpur in 2011 and are arguably the best supported Premier League side in the Southeast Asian region.

"The national football governing body is truly honoured to host Liverpool once again and are excited by the upcoming fixture," Football Association of Malaysia general-secretary Hamidin Haji Mohd Amin said yesterday after announcing the July 24 fixture.

"It's not that we often get to see English Premier League stars. We watch them in awe on our television sets as they take on their opponents, mesmerizing them with their gifted football skills.

"Watching our Malaysian XI play Liverpool is going to be an enthralling experience for all fans."

Liverpool will play Australian A-League sides Brisbane Roar on July 17 and Adelaide United on July 20. Bangkok Post
