Speaking to reporters, as cited on TalkSPORT, Emery explained that he could not guarantee Wilshere a place in his new-look Arsenal side. “It was a tactical, technical decision. The conversation with Wilshere was a very good conversation. I explained to him my opinion and how I will want to create the team and I couldn’t say for sure to him he’s going to play in the XI.” “Also he explained to me the decision is not easy for him but he wanted to choose the best option for him. Every time it was with respect.” Emery has already confirmed that he would like to make Aaron Ramsey a key figure in his squad going forward. The player was out of contract at the Emirates this summer and it was unclear for some time whether or not he would agree to a new deal. After weeks of speculation, it was confirmed that the player would be leaving the club. Reports linked Wilshere with a move to Turkey but in the end, he joined his boyhood club, West Ham, to work with former Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini.

The midfielder ’s future remains uncertain as he has just a year remaining on his current contract and has been told by the club that he could be sold this summer if 27-year-old does not commit to a new contract.

Unai Emery has dropped the biggest hint yet that Aaron Ramsey is set to be a key figure in his Arsenal side going forward.

Speaking to the media, as reported by the Mirror, Emery expressed his delight to have the Welshman at the Emirates.

“I’m very happy with him. For me, every day, every training session, he has the ambition I want. He’s working with a quality, the type of ability that I want. I want to work with him.”

There had been some suggestions that the Welshman could be moved in a bid to raise funds.

A move for Barcelona’s Andre Gomes has been touted by reports in Spain, but the club would need to sell before they can buy.

  Key Emery target left out of pre-season tour squad amid Arsenal links Andre Gomes will not be travelling with the Barcelona squad to the United States as part of their pre-season preparations. Sport have confirmed that the player has been left behind amid speculation about his future. The Portuguese midfielder is set to leave the club this summer and has drawn links to Arsenal, Juventus and Chelsea recently. Unai Emery was said to be interested in bringing the player to the Emirates but would need to sell first before he could sanction a deal. There were also suggestions that he could be offered to Chelsea as part of a deal to sign N’Golo Kante this summer. Gomes has been unable to step up at Barcelona after making the move from Valencia and has found regular game time hard to come by. Emery is a fan of the player but it remains to be seen if he will look to launch a move for him before the transfer window closes.

The capture of recruitment specialist Sven Mislintat from Borussia Dortmund back in November has been viewed as something of a coup for Arsenal’s future transfer plans. But Emery will have to work hard to ensure the club shares his vision for reshaping the Gunners’ frontline squad.

The claims had come as a surprise to many, with Ramsey expected to be a key member of Emery’s squad from the moment he was confirmed as Arsene Wenger’s successor.

Emery largely used a 4-3-3 system during his time with Paris Saint-Germain due to the front three of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani, but it is yet to be seen how his Arsenal side will line up.
