Arsenal boss Unai Emery: Fans and players must have stronger connection

Arsenal boss Unai Emery: Fans and players must have stronger connection

Emery's ultimate goal is to win the Premier League, but he wants to see his players do it in style.

The transfer window hasn't been quiet either for the Gunners, with a fair few fresh faces joining the Emery revolution but will there be any more comings and goings today?

Having built a sense of cautious optimism and enthusiasm over the course of pre-season, the Spaniard now has a gentle introduction to life in the English top tier against... reigning champions Manchester City.

Unai Emery now has less than 24 hours to add any more players to his side, before the window slams shut at 5pm tomorrow.

Premier League clubs can still sell players to European teams until the end of the month despite the domestic window closing on Thursday, and Welbeck had been linked with a move overseas in search of more regular first-team football.

"We have three players Carl Jenkinson, David Ospina and Joel Campbell who have the possibility to leave, but the other players they are with us".

Cam Newton Gets In Heated Altercation With Kelvin Benjamin
A first-round pick by the Panthers in 2014, Benjamin was traded to the Bills midway through last season for a pair of draft picks. Benjamin may have walked away from the tense exchange with Newton, but he was happy run into the end zone shortly thereafter.

"We want to start well, we want to play and we want to show our quality, our work in this month tactically and with our spirit", he said.

"When we were in Spain each match against Barcelona with Valencia is very exciting and very demanding for me also to prepare this match". To say it here is easier than doing it on the pitch.

"I met the Kroenke family in Atlanta and he gave us his commitment in this project with Arsenal", he said.

The Arsenal Supporters' Trust described the move as a "dreadful day" for the club, but Emery is more optimistic.

And the former Paris Saint-Germain and Sevilla coach has stressed the importance of Arsenal being on the front foot.

Sead Kolasinac (knee) and Laurent Koscielny (Achilles) are definitely out as summer arrivals Bernd Leno, Stephan Lichtsteiner, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi all push to make their competitive debuts.
