Unai Emery confirms Mohamed Elneny will stay at Arsenal

Justin GreeneAug 11, 2018

Arsenal head coach Unai Emery does not plan to sell England forward Danny Welbeck this summer.

The north London side are now preparing for their first season under Unai Emery following his appointment at The Emirates as Arsene Wenger's successor back in May.

Emery was hired to replace Wenger following the Frenchman's exit at the end of a dismal campaign which saw Arsenal labour to a sixth-place finish in the Premier League.

Aaron Ramsey, Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil - who notably wore the armband in a pre-season friendly - are the others, though it is Cech who will take on captain duties against City.

Emery said Welbeck will not be available for selection for their opening league match against Manchester City on Sunday but that he remains part of his first-team plans. Despite his emphasis on a new way, the manager's selections represent an expression of confidence in players who have been at Arsenal for years during which the team has been accused of suffering from a chronic lack of leadership.

"But we are starting a new way, a new process with the same players and the new players, the new coaches".

Perez managed to score eight goals in 35 matches for Deportivo who have been relegated into the Segunda division in Spain last season. Arsenal's decision to cash-in on a player with one year left on his current deal comes as no surprise as Emery looks set to trim his squad even further. He spoke of the need for Arsenal to show fresh energy and a keen understanding of his tactics, and for supporters to rally around the new approach. But then we are going to watch Sunday, how is the response of the team against Manchester City. He started his career as a bigger player than me.

"Today, we had a meeting with the players to close all the possibilities to bring more players".

"For me, that is the best message I can give the supporters". I want those two moments to feel the same for all players.
