What you don't know about new Arsenal signing Matteo Guendouzi

Matteo Guendouzi and Unai Emery

Unai Emery has dropped the biggest hint yet that Aaron Ramsey is set to be a key figure in his Arsenal side going forward.

And Emery believes that, while he would be happy to head into the Premier League season with his current group of players, they will be in a prime position to strike if a transfer "opportunity" comes up. "We are also thinking about the players who were with us previous year and whether we need them to stay with us".

He said: 'Normally, in my career the big clubs don't close the [door] or the moment to sign a new player. We signed the players who we needed. I want to become part of the club's history and to achieve great things here.

"At the moment, I think the squad is complete", Emery told a prematch news conference ahead of a preseason friendly at Boreham Wood.

The 19-year-old is the fifth Arsenal signing of the summer overall after the earlier captures Stephan Lichtsteiner, Bernd Leno, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and the aforementioned Torreira. "I said to Ivan, Raul and Sven [Gazidis, Sanllehi and Mislintat, the collective dealing with contracts and transfers] he's an important player for me". "It's clear that we have [a lot] of goalkeepers but we want to work in the future with three goalkeepers in the first team". For me, every day, every training session, he has the ambition I want.

The Spaniard, who took over from Arsene Wenger in May, said Laurent Koscielny would remain his "first captain".

Asked about Arsenal's interest in the Frenchman, Emery responded: 'I know him but we haven't made a move for him'.

"Koscielny is the first captain now, then we are looking for the player who the personality is the best in the dressing room to keep respect of players". But he wanted to choose the best option for him, and [the whole] time is with respect.
