Arsenal are eyeing a wealth of improvements in the summer transfer market, with new boss Unai Emery leading the charge after his arrival at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners have already secured deals to sign Stephan Lichtsteiner and Bernd Leno but continue to push for further additions – and have been widely linked with an interest in Sevilla’s Miguel Layun.

Mexico international Layun, who is showing his versatility at the World Cup by playing as a winger, spent the second-half of last season on-loan in Portugal with Porto and he admits a return to Andalusia is complicated.

Speaking to Cadena Ser, Layun said:

“I’m just like everyone, waiting for something to be confirmed. In a tournament like the World Cup I’m totally focused on what I want to achieve here, but of course there is always that issue of not knowing what will be of my future.

“Participating at such an important club in Europe was very special. I expressed that it would be a dream to be able to continue with the team. I still haven’t ruled out the possibility of staying at Sevilla, because for me it would be very nice.

“It’s complicated. But I think if they had the intention [to sign me] they would have already communicated with me and with my agent.”
