After victory over Cardiff City, Emery was asked about the deal.
He declared, "There's no change in my idea, I think the same. If some players can come here to help us, they will come. The latest news? I don't know. Today all my focus has been on this match. I've not spoken with anyone at the club who is working on that. Maybe tonight or tomorrow, I will speak about the latest news. My idea is the same: if we can sign one player to help us, it's good for us.
"Generally speaking, we need wingers and if you have a player like Denis, I know him because he played for me at Sevilla. His quality is this."
He added: "If he can come, it's a challenge for him and it's also to help us."
