Arsenal manager Unai Emery has signed five players in this transfer window as he prepares for his first season at the Emirates Stadium after replacing Arsene Wenger who left the North London club in May this year.
The summer transfer window will close on 9th of August after all Premier League clubs agreed that it is usually disturbing to focus on transfers when the season has already begun so it this time won’t close at the 31st of this month as in the past.
The gunners have been linked with a move for Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele in the last few days but it seems the deal won’t go through as Unai Emery has confirmed that he won’t be signing any player before the transfer window closes, the Spanish says that his focus is on Arsenal’s season opening match against Manchester City.
“My focus is on the first match and preparing, and not for the window and the possibility to sign another player.” Unai Emery told Arsenal’s official website.
“Maybe we need some players to leave because we have lots in the squad, but at the moment, my one focus is on our work.”
So, the statement by the manager clearly indicates that the Arsenal fans should not be hopeful of seeing a new face at the Emirates Stadium but the gunners will however say goodbye to some of their players because the North Londoners have a large squad as Unai Emery said, the club will let some go this week.
Unai Emery is done with signing new players in this transfer window as he was even seen today watching the FA Community Shield match between Manchester City and Chelsea so the manager has put all his thoughts on their match against the Premier League defending champions.
The Arsenal manager didn’t reveal the players which might be sold this week but David Ospina, Danny Welbeck and Lucas Perez are all expected to leave the Emirates Stadium this summer.
