It's all change at Arsenal right now.
Unai Emery’s arrival has sparked an uplift in the mood among Arsenal supporters, who had had enough of life under Arsene Wenger.
Emery has already made some improvements to his squad, bringing in Bernd Leno and Stephan Lichtsteiner, and more arrivals are expected in the coming weeks.
The demands of the Europa League mean Emery’s squad will need depth.
That explains Lichtsteiner’s arrival; the 34-year-old will help to ease Hector Bellerin’s workload.
An extra midfielder is needed following Jack Wilshere’s exit and Marouane Fellaini and Lucas Torreira have both been linked.
And you’ll be hard pushed to find an Arsenal fan that doesn’t want to see the club bring in a new defender.
Emery doesn't want Wenger target
Laurent Koscielny has been on the decline for some time and he’s coming back from a ruptured Achilles.
So a centre-back is pretty much a necessity.
However, one man who can be ruled out from signing for Arsenal is Brighton defender Lewis Dunk.
The 26-year-old was outstanding for the Seagulls last season, helping Chris Hughton’s side avoid being relegated from the Premier League.
But the Mirror have reported that Emery has no interest in signing Dunk.
Arsene Wenger was considering a bid for the defender and could have moved to sign him if he was still in charge.
But Emery has different plans to the Frenchman.
Despite Arsenal cooling their interest, Brighton will still have to fend off interest in Dunk this summer.
He is admired by a host of Premier League clubs but Brighton are refusing to sell to any of the 12-13 clubs in the top flight who they will compete with to avoid the drop next season.
The Mirror fail to give a reason as to why Emery doesn’t want to sign Dunk but it seems to suggest he has another target in mind.
The Spaniard is just weeks into his new job and his task of enhancing his squad has been affected by the World Cup and a reduced budget.News Now - Sport News
