Unai Emery: Arsenal looking to sign "very expensive" players this summer

Emery says Arsenal are targeting 'very big, very expensive' players

The two sides will also be represented by their lawyers as they look to sort out Koscielny's future.

Switzerland global Xhaka was one of five players to pull on the armband under Unai Emery last season and the Telegraph reports that he is the favourite to become the club's next permanent skipper.

So far this summer the Gunners have only signed 18-year-old forward Gabriel Martinelli despite being linked with a host of names.

Granit Xhaka is in pole position to replace Laurent Koscielny as the Arsenal captain after the Frenchman refused to attend the club's pre-season tour. We also need to take the best player in some positions.

Emery then outlined Arsenal's aims in the market, claiming the Gunners are looking to secure the signings of "three or four big players".

"We have players with the capacity [to be captains]".

'Really I can say to our supporters we are going to make a very good team with the players there now and three or four players who can help us in a few days'. "But Ceballos is a very good player". We need, really, that they will come with a big performance.

Arsenal did use this formula in the past with Arsene Wenger but things have changed and they now have Unai Emery who isn't known for promoting youngsters but the club understood this and made a decision to appoint Freddie Ljungberg as one of the first team coaches ahead of this new season since he worked with the under-23 squad for a year.

"We are being very demanding and we are also first speaking about the possibility of signing very big players, very expensive", he continued. And after, if we can not achieve that, then the second.

"At the moment Koscielny has a contract with us but we'll speak with the club and him about if he will continue or not".
