Arsene Wenger expects striker Emmanuel Adebayor to turn up for Arsenal pre-season training on Monday.
Togo striker Adebayor, who finished top scorer for the Gunners last season with 30 goals, has made it clear through comments in the media that he wants an improved deal.
But Wenger clearly has no intention of letting Arsenal be held to ransom over excessive wage demands from any of his players.
After watching Arsenal's 2-1 pre-season friendly win over Barnet, Wenger told Sky Sports News: 'Adebayor is under contract and we expect him to turn up on Monday and practice with us.'
Arsenal head off for their pre-season training camp in Austria at the end of this month and will return for the Emirates Cup - hosting Juventus and Real Madrid, as well Hamburg under former Tottenham manager Martin Jol.
The Gunners will complete their preparations for the new season with an appearance at the Amsterdam Tournament ahead of the Champions League qualifier on August 12/13.
