Villarreal coach Emery says Arsenal target Torres 'can play for top team'

Villarreal coach Unai Emery has no doubts about the quality of Arsenal target Pau Torres.

Mikel Arteta's side have previously been linked with a move for the Villarreal centre-back, but have since signed Pablo Mari and Gabriel Magalhaes.

But Yellow Submarine boss Emery reckons Torres is better than either of them.

'I've been a coach in Sevilla, PSG, Arsenal and I've never seen a centre-back like Pau Torres," Emery told Football London.

“I think he's going to play at the highest level. He's playing now in the national team but he can play in the top teams in the Europe very soon."
