Arsenal sign youngster Guendouzi from Lorient

Arsenal head coach Unai Emery says he wants "five captains" in his team as he tries to find the "best personalities" in his dressing room.

Speaking to reporters, as published on the Mirror, Emery was coy when quizzed about a possible move for N'Zonzi.

"I know him but we haven't made a move for him", Emery said. My first idea is getting better day-to-day with our players and working hard with our players, to transmit my ideas.

After impressing following his move from Stoke, N'Zonzi has often been linked with moves away from the La Liga outfit, but no deal has ever materialised.

Instead of the attractive, attacking swagger implemented by Wenger, fans question whether a more robust strategic style could come from Emery.

Guendouzi is just one of a number of new additions with Lucas Torreira, Bernd Leno, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Stephan Lichtsteiner all joining the club over the past month.

"Normally we are thinking about the young players, the possibility to stay with us or go on loan to another team".

'I'm very happy with him. "I want to win titles, titles, titles", said Guendouzi, who will wear #29 with the Gunners.

"At the moment, I think the squad is complete", Emery told a prematch news conference ahead of a preseason friendly at Boreham Wood.

"We will only sign another player if there is an opportunity to bring in that one player, or two players".

Arsenal's legend Ian Wright isn't the only person who was surprised by the way how Unai Emery quickly signed many players but even the fans now believe that it was indeed the right time for Arsene Wenger to leave the North London club because he was not going to change.

"I want to establish myself here, which would be unbelievable". 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.
