Emery rules out winter signings: ‘We can only loan players’

Five key things to know...

Arsenal are looking at signing players who can ensure a strong finish to their Premier League campaign, but their transfer activity this month could be restricted to loan signings, manager Unai Emery has said.

Munir's departure means that Valverde's squad is now thinner, reducing the likelihood Suarez will leave. "Only loan players. I don't know his [Suarez] situation now".

"The reality is he was with our squad when we went to Getafe on Sunday and he is always competing to be in the squad, so yes he does have a future".

"I am happy because another player can have chances when one player is injured and they are doing well, that is the reason for us being calm and my confidence with the club is big, they are working and if one or two players can come and help us that is ideal". "It is really some injuries that didn't help us in the last matches because we struggled with different injuries with the players. if one or two players can come and help us, that is ideal".

Valverde has told reporters that even his stars Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez will need time to rest.

He has emerged as a transfer target for Arsenal in recent weeks in their bid to sign a replacement for outgoing midfielder Aaron Ramsey.

Unai Emery managed the playmaker at Sevilla where they won the Europa League and is keen to link up with him again at the north London club.

"I asked in the last match at Blackpool [in the FA Cup] if he is okay to help us play and he said, "Yeah, coach, I want to play" and he played with a very big behaviour and commitment to us. At the moment, we haven't had any news today about that".

Samir Nasri's only played 71 minutes, this season, too.

"The club is working, telling me each moment different situations can happen".

We are working with the players who are with us now.

Emery has already revealed his hopes of bringing in new faces this month, but insists it won't hinder the opportunities for those youth players who can prove they have "the right attitude". "But I can not sign more", he added.
