The Gunners completed the signings of midfielders Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi this week, adding to right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner, centre-back Sokratis Papastathopoulos and goalkeeper Bernd Leno. "And [I couldn't for sure] say to him he's going to play in the 11 players", Emery said.

"Today, we are okay". Maybe we can bring in one if there's a very good possibility for them to help us, but the club has done a great job of signing new players and I am happy.

Emery knows Nzonzi well from their time together at Sevilla, where they won the Europa League in 2015/16, and it's believed the Spaniard is keen to be reunited with his former player in north London. Wilshere, 26, said last month that he made the decision after a one-to-one conversation with Emery, in which the new head coach indicated he wouldn't be a regular starter.

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

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

The claims had come as a surprise to many, with Ramsey expected to be a key member of Emery's squad from the moment he was confirmed as Arsene Wenger's successor.

"I know this player here is important for the supporters and grew up here in Arsenal but I don't give him one place in the starting 11 and it is for that (reason) he choose to leave here and I respect also this".

Ramsey has now entered the final year of his current Arsenal deal.

The 19-year-old is viewed as an exciting prospect and it seems Tottenham did the hard work in terms of scouting him and being aware of his talent.

"We've spoken about that", Emery responded when asked about who would be captaining the side when the season starts in August.
