Unai Emery gave his first press conference at London Colney as the North London giants new head coach after a busy summer in the transfer market so far - insisting he is satisfied with his squad.

In addition to Lichtsteiner, Arsenal have signed Germany goalkeeper Bernd Leno and Greece defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos, as well as midfielders Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi.

"I want to become part of the club's history and to achieve great things here", Guendouzi told Arsenal's official website.

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

Then, we are looking at, looking for, who are the players whose personality is the best in the dressing room.


Normally, in my career the big clubs don't close the [door] or the moment to sign a new player.

"Today, we are okay".

"Normally we are thinking about the young player, the possibility to stay with us or go on loan to another team".

Ramsey is into the past year of his contract, and Arsenal are keen to avoid the problems they had last season with Alexis Sánchez in the same position.

Arsenal are in talks to sign Sevilla midfielder Steven N'Zonzi, according to Sky sources, but Emery indicated no offer has been made.


"I am very happy with him", he said.

Ramsey has only one year left on his deal and has yet to commit his future.

Who will lead the Gunners on the pitch is just one of many questions Emery faced as he met the media at the club's training ground on Thursday afternoon. I want to know with my direct opinion, with my direct conversations with the player.

On Ramsey, Emery Added: "I'm very happy with him".

"For me, the position is for the team to get better day by day, and we plan for the first match against Manchester City".


"I want to establish myself here, which would be unbelievable".
