Tottenham Ready To Scupper Arsenal's Plans To Sign £86m La Liga Star

Matteo Guendouzi

And with the addition of Lucas Torreira on Tuesday being Unai Emery's most expensive signing so far following his country's elimination from the World Cup by finalist (France), the Uruguay star will need time to adjust to his new environment.

Emery has been busy putting his stamp on Arsenal's squad for his debut campaign, with five players joining the club during the close-season. I want to establish myself here, which would be unbelievable.

Arsenal are in talks to sign Sevilla midfielder Steven N'Zonzi, according to Sky sources, but Emery indicated no offer has been made.

Whilst they remain unnamed, Betancourt revealed there was also some interest from clubs in La Liga. "Winning silverware, as I said, is very important to me and winning things here at Arsenal would be incredible".

For many Arsenal fans, this week was always going to be about Lucas Torreira and the announcement of the midfielder's move to the Emirates.

'In my opinion, I've said to Ivan [Gazidis], Raul [Sanllehi] and Sven [Mislintat] that I think he's an important player for me. Sokratis and Lichtsteiner's age and experience balanced off with one (maybe two) exciting young players. "Every day every training session he is with the ambition I want". Emery remains open minded about adding to that list if "a big opportunity" comes up. "We will only sign a player in the next month if he's a big opportunity".

Guendouzi, a France U20 global, said that Arsenal is his dream club, one that he wanted to play for since childhood.

"Koscielny is the first captain now, then we are looking for the player who the personality is the best in the dressing room to keep respect of players".

"He's working with a quality, the type of ability that I want. I will choose the best player for that".
