Transfer News

Arsenal boss Unai Emery expects the club to reinforce the playing unit in the January transfer window.

Emery said he wants players with commitment and prepared to perform best for the club. He, however, did not specify the players the club is targeting. Dennis Suarez has been recently linked with the Gunners but nothing concrete has been reported on the Barcelona star.

“I think the club is working for the possibility to take some players who can help us during these next four months. Maybe the transfer market can help us with a centre-back, but it is not easy because also (Konstantinos) Mavropanos is coming back after injury. Also a winger, right or left, one player can help us in this position.

"We need players with commitment. We need players who are prepared for when the team needs them and they can step up. Opportunities are coming in matches like today. We mixed experienced players in the squad with some young players like Joe, Eddie and Ainsley. It was a good combination. They can show us they are progressing with the team and, most importantly, they showed their passion.” Emery added.

Emery was speaking after Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Blackpool in the FA Cup third round.
