Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger in talks to become new Japan manager

Arsenal transfer news Unai Emery has had a busy window Arsenal transfer news Unai Emery has had a busy window

The Spanish manager took charge of Arsenal just a few months ago as Arsene Wenger's replacement.

But Emery will hope for immediate success this season having enjoyed a fine transfer window, signing goalkeeper Bernd Leno, defenders Stephan Lichtsteiner and Sokratis, and midfielders Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi.

However, Emery is a coach famed for his tactical nous and attention to detail, with Carragher reckoning that it will be a very different Arsenal we see in the Premier League this season - even comparing the Gunners boss to master tactician, Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez.

The 27-year-old English worldwide has less than a year remaining on his contract and so a lucrative deal as a free agent is only one season of bench-warming away, if he was to be that way inclined. If Arsenal are going to get back into the top four this season it will be due to their attack and that will likely be determined by the performance of Aubameyang.

And Burgess has revealed that Emery has been particularly focused on improving their defence before the start of the Premier League campaign.

"We conceded a ridiculous number of goals, which Arsenal hadn't done in maybe 35 years, so one thing [Emery] has been working on is making the team better organised in that area".

Transfer deadline day: Manchester United 'launch shock Diego Godin bid'
The newspaper also claimed United have contacted Atletico, with Mourinho determined to bring in one more signing. According to Sky Sports , United are chasing a deal for the Uruguay global .

That will come as good news to Arsenal fans.

Welbeck's preferred playing position is through the middle, but Arsenal are well stocked with Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang options for that spot.

The Gunners, who finished sixth last term, face the daunting task of taking on champions Manchester City in their first game on Sunday.

City showed against Chelsea that they are going to continue from where they left off last season. Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has also won both of his first two Premier League Matchweek 1 contests and will be more than ready to start his title defense with a bang.

The reigning Premier League champions have lost their opening game in each of the last two campaigns - this has never happened in three consecutive seasons in English top-flight history. "It's been great getting to know him".
