Unai Emery says he considers the Arsenal squad "complete" after making five signings, and that the club will only make another addition if "a great opportunity" comes up.

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

The diminutive midfielder would also go on to impress during the World Cup in Russian Federation, but Arsenal won the race to sign the player.

Mauricio Pochettino has been quiet in the market so far this summer but he's tipped to sign a new midfielder amid speculation surrounding the future of Mousa Dembele and Gomes could be viewed as a potential replacement.

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


Speaking on the Transfer Talk podcast, Bates said: "The scout who found him in Uruguay was Roberto Druda [Pescara scout who unearthed Torreira in Uruguay] and he pitched him to Juventus three years ago as a long-term successor to Pirlo". "But we didn't do movement for him". The Welshman has one year remaining on his current contract. "Every training is with the ambition I want, working with quality and the competitive spirit I want".

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

The first-choice goalkeeper for next season is yet to be decided, said Emery.

"I want to work with Petr Cech, Bernd Leno, Emilio Martinez, Matt Macey, David Ospina", said Emery. "He wants to learn and improve and will be an important part of our first-team squad".
