Unai Emery explains reasons behind Jack Wilshere's Arsenal exit

"We signed the players who we needed". "Every training is with the ambition I want, working with quality and the competitive spirit I want".

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 explained his decision to end his 17-year association with Arsenal was because he had been informed by new head coach Emery his playing time would be "significantly reduced".

"I want to work with Petr Cech, with Bernd Leno, with Emiliano Martinez, with Matt Macey, with Ospina", he said.

Indeed, the likes of Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla have been moved on and Emery says that, while he is happy with the club's business, he would be willing to add another player to the squad.

"In my opinion, I've said to Ivan, Raul and Sven that I think he's an important player for me".

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

Even a late rendition of God Save the Queen failed to rally the 8,000-strong crowd at Castlefield Bowl at the start of extra time. It said: "The more I see, the more important it is that when 'attacking this tournament" we tell our own story.

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.

"To sign [a player] in the next month?"

France youth global Guendouzi is Emery's fifth signing and follows Switzerland full back Stephan Lichtsteiner, Greece defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos, German keeper Bernd Leno and Uruguay midfielder Lucas Torreira.

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

The midfielder impressed with his displays in Serie A for Sampdoria last season and was quickly in demand when the campaign drew to a close.

"But at the moment, I do not know the names. It's because of that he chose to leave here, and I respect also this". "We want to keep the respect for these players and to find the captain and choose very well the best player for that".
