Unai Emery gave his first pre-match conference yesterday ahead of Arsenal’s game at Boreham Wood this afternoon, and he gave us all the impression that he thinks that the five signings we have brought in already should be enough for him to do his job this season, and now he is looking at which players should be leaving. Emery told Arsenal.com: “Normally, in my career the big clubs don’t close the [door] or the moment to sign a new player. Today, we are OK. Maybe we can bring in one if there’s a very good possibility for them to help us, but the club has done a great job of signing new players and I am happy.”
“We signed the players who we needed and only if one player is a big opportunity for us will we sign them. Normally, we are thinking about the young players, the possibility of them staying with us or going to play on loan at another team.
“We are also thinking about the players who were with us last year and whether we need them to stay with us. At the moment, I think the squad is complete. We will only sign another player if there is an opportunity to bring in that one player, or two players. We will only sign a player in the next month if he’s a big opportunity.”
And this is what the Coach had to say about Steven N’Zonzi: “I know him but we haven’t made a move for him.”
we may not have ‘made a move’ just yet, but I still think that N’Zonzi is being held in reserve in case Aaron Ramsey doesn’t extend his contract, and the Welshman is running out of time to reach an agreement. I think this will be the biggest story over the next week or so. Maybe we will know his decision when we see the team that is flying to Singapore to face Atletico and PSG….
