Unai Emery Targeting Four To Five Signings


Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Ince believes that new Arsenal manager Unai Emery is targeting four to five signings to improve his squad.

The Red Devils’ legend said that the former Sevilla and Valencia manager will be looking to bring in more players either in the January transfer window or during the summer.

Paul Ince was speaking during a recent interview monitored by the Daily Star.

Arsenal appointed Spanish tactician Unai Emery in the summer as a replacement for long-serving manager Arsene Wenger.

The Frenchman spent 22 years in North London before he resigned from his post as the Arsenal manager at the end of last season.

Unai Emery signed a three-year contract and went on to secure the signings of five players namely Stephan Lichtsteiner, Lucas Torreira, Bernd Leno, Sokratis Papasthathopoulos and Matteo Guendouzi.

The Spaniard is said to be seeking for new additions to his depleted squad ahead of the transfer window scheduled for next week.

The Arsenal squad has been decimated due to recent injuries to players like Danny Welbeck, Rob Holding and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Both Welbeck and Holding have been ruled out for the rest of the season with ankle and knee injuries respectively, while Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be out for at least six weeks with a broken metatarsal.
