Guendouzi: Arsenal was an easy decision

Arsenal

ARSENALArsenal fans were bemused with the training drill

The former Paris Saint-Germain and Sevilla manager has already stamped his authority on the squad he inherited, with five new signings for fees that could collectively exceed £70m.

Emery has also brought in Bernd Leno, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Sokratis Papastathopoulos ahead of his maiden campaign at the Emirates Stadium helm.

Arsenal are one club interested in Gomes as Emery hunts for potential replacements for Aaron Ramsey, who may leave.

'Normally, we are thinking about the young players, the possibility of them staying with us or going to play on loan at another team.

"In this moment I think the squad is complete, only the possibility for one player or two players to leave".

'We will only sign a player in the next month if he's a big opportunity'. "Only if he is a big opportunity". Strengthening the midfield was a top priority for Emery this offseason, and he's made some moves to try and make that happen.

Speaking on the Transfer Talk podcast, Bates said: "The scout who found him in Uruguay was Roberto Druda [Pescara scout who unearthed Torreira in Uruguay] and he pitched him to Juventus three years ago as a long-term successor to Pirlo". The Welshman has one year remaining on his current contract. For me, every day, every training session, he has the ambition I want.

"I am convinced that Arsenal are now the ideal team for him to continue his growth path". He is working with quality. It gives me great pride - it's incredible.

Lucas Torreira's agent says that Arsenal saw off substantial competition for his client's signature, naming names, and he is convinced the Gunners are the right choice for the Uruguayan to continue to grow and develop. He plans to make his decision over the coming weeks. "I want to work with him".
