Unai Emery speaks on Arsenal’s squad, transfer business

Arsenal manager, Unai Emery has said that the squad is “complete”, after signing five new players.

The Gunners completed the signings of midfielders Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi this week, adding to right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner, centre-back Sokratis Papastathopoulos and goalkeeper Bernd Leno.

Emery, who replaced Arsene Wenger in May, however said they could still be open to a good deal.

“At the moment, I think the squad is complete,” Emery told a prematch news conference ahead of a preseason friendly at Boreham Wood.

“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.

“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.

“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.”
