Arsenal boss Emery: We'll only complete one more big signing

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.

Emery plans to speak to Wenger at the annual managers' meeting in Nyon, but wants to put his own stamp over affairs at the club.

"My idea is to know every player and to know, also, the personality of the players". I want to become part of the club's history and to achieve great things here. But at the moment, I don't know the names. "I will choose the best player for that".

"We will only sign a player in the next month if he's a big opportunity".

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.

Instead of the attractive, attacking swagger implemented by Wenger, fans question whether a more robust strategic style could come from Emery.

"We signed the players who we need, only if one player is a big opportunity for us to sign we can do it", Emery said ahead of Arsenal's first pre-season game of the summer against Boreham Wood on Saturday.

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

'In my opinion, I've said to Ivan [Gazidis], Raul [Sanllehi] and Sven [Mislintat] that I think he's an important player for me.

"To sign [a player] in the next month? Only if he is a big opportunity".

Strengthening the midfield was a top priority for Emery this offseason, and he's made some moves to try and make that happen.

"I'm very happy with him", said Emery.
