Arsenal manager Unai Emery has highlighted that the club’s transfer business is more or less finished unless a big opportunity arises to sign a player this summer.
Since the arrival of Emery, the Gunners have been quick to sort of their recruits and five players in Stephan Lichtsteiner, Bernd Leno, Sokratis Papastathopouls, Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi have already joined the club.
As a result, the necessary weaknesses in the goalkeeping, central defence and holding midfield have been solved but Emery has not entirely ruled out a sixth recruit in the transfer window.
Speaking ahead of the pre-season friendly versus Boreham Wood, Emery revealed the club’s transfer business is complete but hinted that there could be one more addition before the transfer window.
Meanwhile, Sevilla’s Steven N’Zonzi has been one who has been constantly linked with the club in recent weeks and when asked about speculation, Emery declined that the club have made any approach for his former player, he said:
“I know him but we haven’t made a move for him.”
Arsenal have usually fielded a second-team or reserve XI when they have taken on Boreham Wood over the years but this weekend’s fixture is likely to witness a change with several senior players in the mix.
Aaron Ramsey, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan are some of the high-profile in the running for the first pre-season friendly as Emery aims to prepare them for the high-profile games versus Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain in Singapore later in the month.
