Unai Emery has been working intensively with his new players at Arsenal for two weeks and has been impressed enough with Aaron Ramsey to tell the powers that be that he wants the Welshman to be firmly in his plans.

And former Sevilla and PSG manager Emery is clearly demanding a lot of his new players ahead of the upcoming campaign with new signing Matteo Guendouzi the latest to get put through the wringer.

"I want to know with my direct opinion, with my direct conversations with the player".

Ramsey is into the past year of his contract, and Arsenal are keen to avoid the problems they had last season with Alexis Sánchez in the same position.

"I have information on the players for the club, from the people around me. Winning silverware, as I said, is very important to me and winning things here at Arsenal would be incredible".

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

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. "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".

"We signed the players who we needed and only if one player is a big opportunity for us will we sign them", he said.

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

"Each coach needs to know the players".

"We signed the players who we need, only if one player is a big opportunity for us to sign we can do it", he added.

"I know him [N'Zonzi] but we didn't do movement for him", he said. "Every day every training session he is with the ambition I want".

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