Unai Emery sends message to board over Aaron Ramsey contract

Arsenal

Emery was appointed at the start of the summer to replace Arsene Wenger, who called time on his 22-year spell as Arsenal boss at the end of a disappointing campaign.

Unai Emery gave his first press conference at London Colney as the North London giants new head coach after a busy summer in the transfer market so far - insisting he is satisfied with his squad.

Great momentum in this window.

Emery denied that Arsenal are in talks to sign Steven N'Zonzi, a player he coached at Sevilla, and added that a more pressing concern is securing the future of Aaron Ramsey, who has just 12 months remaining on his contract.

"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. My first idea is getting better day-to-day with our players and working hard with our players, to transmit my ideas.

He said: "We signed the players who we needed and only if one player is a big opportunity for us will we sign them". I want to become part of the club's history and to achieve great things here.

Strengthening the midfield was a top priority for Emery this offseason, and he's made some moves to try and make that happen. And then, I think my first idea is to have five captains in the team.

"Normally we are thinking about the young player, the possibility to stay with us or go on loan to another team".

"In my opinion, I've said to Ivan, Raul and Sven that I think he's an important player for me".

"We want to keep the respect for these players, to find the captain and choose very well the best player for that". "Every day every training session he is with the ambition I want".

I want to work with him.

'I'm very happy with him.
