Reporter reveals how new Arsenal signing was first scouted

Matteo Guendouzi

Guendouzi: Arsenal was an easy decision

I want to know with my direct opinion, with my direct conversations with the player.

Guendouzi is just one of a number of new additions with Lucas Torreira, Bernd Leno, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Stephan Lichtsteiner all joining the club over the past month. "Only if he is a big opportunity".

Those are five players in five key positions which the team needed to strengthen and in his press conference on Thursday, head coach Unai Emery was asked if he wants to bring in any more players before the window shuts next month.

Arsenal's new signings have been enjoying life at London Colney as pre-season training kicked off this week, though existing stars haven't been giving them an easy ride.

"We signed the players who we need, only if one player is a big opportunity for us to sign we can do it", he added. And then, I think my first idea is to have five captains in the team. "We are also thinking about the players who were with us past year and whether we need them to stay with us".

It seems it's true that Unai Emery values Aaron Ramsey in his team as it was earlier rumoured and he also was asked on why the Welsh global hasn't signed a new deal, he answered.

The 27-year-old midfielder has scored 58 goals in his 327 appearances for the club, scoring in two FA Cup finals, so it's no big surprise fans have had restless evenings about his contract expiration because he is one of the best candidate favourites at the North London club.

"I know him but we haven't made a move for him", Emery said.

The Portugal worldwide appears to be ready to leave La Liga this summer, after he struggled to win a place in Barcelona's first team squad during the two years spent at the Catalan club.

"I am convinced that Arsenal are now the ideal team for him to continue his growth path".

I want to work with him.


"This is one question for the player and for the club. Now, I want to look, I want to work every day with all the goalkeepers and then I am going to decide for [who is No 1]".
