New boss Unai Emery has spent heavily this summer to draft in five signings at the Stadium but he remains in the hunt for further additions.

The Daily Mail states Emery is desperate to reunite with winning midfielder Steven N’Zonzi, who he worked with during his time in Sevilla, but will have to offload players in order to finance a move.

29-year-old N’Zonzi would cost Arsenal £25m but Emery has already spent his £70m budget this summer on Bernd Leno, Matteo Guendouzi, Papastathopoulos and Lucas Torreira, with Stephan Lichtsteiner also arriving on a free.

do have a number of candidates they could offload before the start of the new season as David Ospina, Welbeck and Lucas Perez are among those tipped for an exit, while the future of Aaron Ramsey remains uncertain.

Selling Ramsey, who has just entered the final 12 months of his contract, would easily finance a move for N’Zonzi but Emery is confident the Wales international will agree to a new contract.
