Arsenal may have already brought in five players in this transfer window, but according to Unai Emery they are still trying to bring in one more before the transfer window shuts, although he is very glad that the window will close early for Premier League clubs this season. He said: “For us, the decision to close the transfer market on August 9 is good because we start the Premier League and it is better to close the window when the competition starts. They haven’t done it in Spain, or Italy or Germany, but for us I think it is good.”
I agree myself that it should close before the season starts, although it doesn’t much time to talk to late returners from the World Cup, but what all Arsenal fans are really interested in is if the Gunners are still going to bring in any more players. Emery said: “I am very happy with how the club is working and we are working every day on how we can improve. I am with the players and those who have arrived this week, I am very happy with and I said at the last press conference that if there is an opportunity to try to sign one player, then we are looking.”
That is great news, but surely we still need to do a clearout of our massive squad before we can fit anyone else in? With Perez now staying with the squad I’m not so sure if we need a new left winger, but if Welbeck and/or Ramsey goes perhaps a versatile winger-midfielder would be handy. We we probably all have an idea of which ‘one player’ we would like, so if you could just choose one, who would it be?
