"I know this player is very important for the supporters, he grew up here with Arsenal".

"I have information on the players for the club, from the people around me".

"I want to establish myself here, which would be fantastic".

"Normally, in my career the big clubs don't close the [door] or the moment to sign a new player", he told reporters.

Centre-back Laurent Koscielny is the current club captain and Emery confirmed the defender would continue leading his team-mates.

'I want all the players showing their best quality on the pitch in each training session and each match'. We will only sign a player in the next month if he's a big opportunity.

New Arsenal boss Unai Emery is set to face a hard start in the Premier League with four matches moved for live TV. Today, we are OK.

"I want to work with Petr Cech, with Bernd Leno, with Emiliano Martinez, with Matt Macey, with Ospina", he said.

However, the 24-year-old's time at the Nou Camp hasn't gone according to plan as he's struggled to hold down a regular first team place under Ernesto Valverde and started just 6 La Liga games last season with the vast majority of his appearances coming from the bench.

Although Unai Emery didn't give a direct no as answer about getting advice from Arsene Wenger but he indirectly says that he would like to do everything on his own with out the help of the former Arsenal manager.

"We want to keep the respect for these players and to find the captain and choose very well the best player for that". We signed the players who we needed.

The north London side have not won the Premier League title since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign, but they did win the FA Cup in three of the last five years.

"I have said to Ivan [Gazidis], Raul [Sanllehi] and Sven [Mislintat] that I think he is an important player for me".

But, Emery insisted his squad needs to be bursting at the seams with players willing to step up.
