"I have information on the players for the club, from the people around me".

"I am very happy with him", he said.

"Normally, in my career the big clubs don't close the door or the moment to sign a new player", he said.

Emery also revealed he intends on naming a quintet of captains, with current skipper Laurent Koscielny set to keep the armband even though he is set to miss the start of the season with an Achilles injury. "Now, I want to look, I want to work every day with all the goalkeepers and then I am going to decide for [who is No 1]". "I am sure we will meet together in the next week or month or in the near future". Today, we are OK. "We are also thinking about the players who were with us a year ago and whether we need them to stay with us".

Arsenal begin their pre-season on 14th July while their presence in the International Champions Cup ensures that they will face several high-profile opponents before the big kick-off against Manchester City.

"He's working with a quality and the type of ability that I want".

Although Unai Emery didn't give a direct no as answer about getting advice from Arsene Wenger but he indirectly says that he would like to do everything on his own with out the help of the former Arsenal manager.

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

Emery won the domestic treble at Paris Saint-Germain last season and believes he does not feel he needs to pick the brains of Wenger to find out more about his squad. "I said to Ivan, Raul and Sven [Gazidis, Sanllehi and Mislintat, the collective dealing with contracts and transfers] he's an important player for me".
