Arsenal boss issues major transfer update, club open to ‘big opportunity’


Arsenal have been extremely active in the transfer market so far this summer, with Unai Emery leading the charge on the rejuvenation of the first-team squad.

The Gunners have landed Stephan Lichtsteiner, Lucas Torreira, Bernd Leno, Sokratis Papastahopoulos and Matteo Guendouzi as arrivals to strengthen the first-team, ahead of a push for glory in the 2018-19 season.

A number of names continue to be linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium but, speaking to reporters this week, Emery revealed he is happy with how his squad is looking – although he did not rule out further signings if a ‘big opportunity’ emerges.

“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.”
