After being dealt blows in the pursuit of Karim Benzema and Marco Reus, Arsene Wenger took some time away from transfer business to take on the crossbar challenge.

The 65-year-old hit the target on his first attempt during an open training session yesterday.

Held at The Emirates, the annual event was free for Arsenal members and was well attended by Gunners fans ahead of Saturday's Wembley showdown against Chelsea in the Community Shield.

Laurent Koscielny also decided to show off with an outrageous rabona which sailed into the top right hand corner of the goal.

Take a look at both videos below.

Marco Reus will remain at Borussia Dortmund this season, that's according to the club's director of communications, Sascha Fligge, despite Arsenal showing interest in the 26-year-old.

Speaking to ESPN FC, Fligge stated: "Marco Reus will not leave Borussia Dortmund this summer... That’s a 100 percent certainty.”

The Mirror has only recently reported that Arsenal were lining up a £48 million bid for the Germany winger.

Palermo have been told by Arsenal that they can take Joel Campbell for a fee of £7 million, according to Gazzetta de Sport. An offered of £3.5 million has already been rejected by the North London club for the attacker.

Campbell has failed to break into the Arsenal first team since joining in 2011 from Costa Rican side Saprissa, spending time on loan at four different clubs.

The most recent of which was with Villarreal where he made 20 appearances in all competitions after joining during the January transfer window.
