Guendouzi: Arsenal was an easy decision

Grant SmithJul 13, 2018

Lucas Torreira, Bernd Leno, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Matteo Guendouzi and Stephan Lichtsteiner have all joined, while Jack Wilshere, Santi Cazorla and Per Mertesacker are among those to have moved on - although the latter remains with the Gunners as academy manager.

"Normally, in my career the big clubs don't close the [door] or the moment to sign a new player", he told reporters. Today, we are OK.

I'm very happy with him.

"We are also thinking about the players who were with us a year ago and whether we need them to stay with us. I am sure we will meet together in the next week or month or in the near future".

But Emery does not foresee much more activity in the transfer market.

Wenger's 22-year reign came to an end last season, with Emery appointed as the club's new head coach in May following the Spaniard's departure from Paris Saint-Germain.

"We've spoken about that [the captaincy]".

Emery also downplayed reports that he's interested in reuniting with midfielder Steven N'Zonzi, who played under him at Sevilla.

It remains to be seen if Guendouzi will go straight into the Arsenal first team or spend time out on loan, although the price tag would suggest he could go into the senior set-up despite the step up from Ligue 2 to the Premier League. I know this player here is very important for the supporters, he grew up here at Arsenal.

"I need to know more and also, firstly, Koscielny is the first captain now and for me, I have respect for that". We signed the players who we needed.

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

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

"Each coach needs to know the players".

'I want all the players showing their best quality on the pitch in each training session and each match'.

"I have information on the players from the club, from the people around me".
