​Arsenal boss Emery: We'll only complete one more big signing

Arsenal manager Unai Emery says he is happy with the strength of the squad at his disposal.

The new Gunners boss is set to run the rule over his players during pre season training.

Arsenal have signed a few players in the transfer window, including goalkeeper Bernd Leno and Sokratis from Dortmund.

Questioned on transfers, Emery said in his press conference: "Normally, in my career the big clubs don't close the [door] or the moment to sign a new player. Today, we are OK. 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."

And when he was asked if a specific position needed strengthening, he responded by saying:

"We signed the players who we needed and only if one player is a big opportunity for us will we sign them. Normally, we are thinking about the young players, the possibility of them staying with us or going to play on loan at another team.

"We are also thinking about the players who were with us last year and whether we need them to stay with us.

"At the moment, I think the squad is complete. We will only sign another player if there is an opportunity to bring in that one player, or two players. We will only sign a player in the next month if he's a big opportunity."
