Turkish club Besiktas are willing to trade Croatian star Domagoj Vida to Arsenal today - but the Premier League side failed to raise the cash on time. "And then when we have the space, to be aggressive going forward". His career as a coach is bigger than me. But then also we need to build [a mentality] and it isn't a thing you find quickly.

"Success is to improve, grow up, build one team with personality, and then I want to win", he said. I believe in me, I believe in the players, I believe in the club. "Above all it is important that we have confidence in ourselves so that we produce the best match for ourselves". "My idea is to give us the best performance".

"The same when we are thinking defensively, I want our strikers to be thinking: 'We need to protect the goalkeepers.' I want those two moments to feel the same for all players".

The Premier League gets underway this weekend after an 89 day absence and much emphasis will be on the game between Arsenal and Manchester City that takes place on Sunday afternoon.

With standards of professionalism far higher and more uniform across all clubs, the quiet revolution at Arsenal's training ground this summer has not been as dramatic... He makes it hard for teams to play against them and will play 4-2-3-1.

Emery has added a mix of youth and experience to the squad he inherited this summer, with deals done for the likes of Stephan Lichtsteiner, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Bernd Leno and Lucas Torreira. For now, Southampton are a real option, primarily if he seeks regular first-team football, or Bournemouth, but Everton, another prospective suitor, might not want him now. "But for me, I want to enjoy the way [we do it]".
