Unai Emery discusses Arsenal’s chance of Premier League glory next season

The future of Arsenal

Unai Emery has been discussing Arsenal’s chances of winning the Premier League next season and also given an insight into his transfer plans.

The Spanish boss came in to replace Arsene Wenger this summer after the Frenchman decided it was the right time to leave.

That means that Arsenal are going into a very new era under Emery and there will be expectations that the side will improve.

Though, how much is yet to be seen but some still think that they could contend for the title next season.

Now, Unai Emery has played down those suggestions for now.

“Let’s go step by step,” he explained, as quoted by the Daily Mirror. 

“We need to do it this way, working and thinking with our minds.

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

Transfer business

There has also been a lot made about Arsenal’s transfer business so far.

They have sealed the signings of Stephan Lichtsteiner, Bernd Leno, Lucas Torreira andMatteo Guendouzi so far.

Now, it looks as though that could be the end of their business.

“We signed the players who we needed and only if one player is a big opportunity for us will we sign them,” Emery continued.

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

“We are also thinking about the players who were with us last year and whether we need them to stay with us.

“At the moment, I think the squad is complete.

“We will only sign another player if there is an opportunity to bring in that one player, or two players.

‘We will only sign a player in the next month if he’s a big opportunity.”
