Unai Emery, Arsenal manager, wants 5 new players at club this summer

Unai Emery, Arsenal manager, wants 5 new players at club this summer

The most recent new face through the door is Barcelona loanee Denis Suarez, for whom Arsenal have a reported (Mirror) £18m option to buy at the conclusion of the current season.

Suarez played 24 minutes as a substitute in the 3-1 defeat at Manchester City last weekend and then headed to the club's training ground the following morning for an extended individual session with Emery's backroom staff.

Arsenal legend Sol Campbell has backed Unai Emery to succeed at the Emirates - but warns Tottenham have overtaken their local rivals. "To say "Emery Out" already, it's harsh".

Ahead of Arsenal's next away game - against bottom-of-the-table Huddersfield - Emery paid tribute to departing head of recruitment, Sven Mislintat.

Emery confirmed that Henrikh Mkhitaryan is available for selection after recovering from a knee injury, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Laurent Koscielny are expected to travel despite falling ill during the week. Each match is also a very big opportunity for us to fight for the possibility to take three points and continue in our way better than how we are doing in away games now. "I work over anything other criticism can do to me, the work in the present and future can change our way".

"Just a few weeks ago, (Manchester) United were obviously behind us but it's happened and it's something we have to deal with". But after this week, playing with the under-23s and working with us, I think it is the first time I can think about him being with us.

"Their last results have not been good but with their new coach (Jan Siewert), I am sure that they are going to play with big ambition and a big performance on Saturday".

And Emery knows it is imperative they turn that form around as they look to stay in contention for Champions League qualification place at the end of the season.
