Aaron Ramsey an important part of my Arsenal plans, insists Unai Emery

Maybe we can bring in one if there's a very good possibility for them to help us, but the club has done a great job of signing new players and I am happy.

This week, the Gunners added Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi to the list of summer recruits which also includes Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Bernd Leno.

Arsenal's legend Ian Wright isn't the only person who was surprised by the way how Unai Emery quickly signed many players but even the fans now believe that it was indeed the right time for Arsene Wenger to leave the North London club because he was not going to change. "We will only sign a player in the next month if he's a big opportunity".

Emery, who took over from club legend Arsene Wenger earlier in the summer, held his first pre-season press conference today ahead of Saturday's friendly against Boreham Wood.

"We've spoken about that", he said. But at the moment, I don't know the names.

Ramsey is into the previous year of his contract, and Arsenal are keen to avoid the problems they had last season with Alexis Sánchez in the same position. "I am sure we will meet together in the next week or month or in the near future".

"I need to know more and also, firstly, Koscielny is the first captain now and for me, I have respect for that".

"The first two weeks for us is to start knowing the club, knowing the players, knowing all the people who are working with us".

The Gunners have had a 14-year wait since last lifting the league title, and fans will be hoping Emery will bring the club back to the top, having won the French league by 13 points with Paris Saint-Germain last season. Each coach needs to know the players. "I said to Ivan, Raul and Sven [Gazidis, Sanllehi and Mislintat, the collective dealing with contracts and transfers] he's an important player for me".
