This week, the Gunners added Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi to the list of summer recruits which also includes Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Bernd Leno.

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

"Today, we are okay".

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 signed the players who we needed and only if one player is a big opportunity for us will we sign them. I am sure we will meet together in the next week or month or in the near future".

Theresa May has said she wants to honour England's World Cup team with a reception at 10 Downing Street in recognition of their achievements.

He also plans to sort out the captaincy, bearing in mind the club captain Laurent Koscielny is injured.

Who will lead the Gunners on the pitch is just one of many questions Emery faced as he met the media at the club's training ground on Thursday afternoon.

Emery was appointed at the start of the summer to replace Arsene Wenger, who called time on his 22-year spell as Arsenal boss at the end of a disappointing campaign.

"We've spoken about that", he said.

"My idea is to know every player and to know, also, the personality of the players", said Emery, 43.

Their last bilateral series' defeat came in India in January 2017, with only a freak one-off loss to Scotland in the interim. Although England has the home advantage in the series, India is high on confidence due to their victory in T20I series.

It remains to be seen if Guendouzi will go straight into the Arsenal first team or spend time out on loan, although the price tag would suggest he could go into the senior set-up despite the step up from Ligue 2 to the Premier League.

"But at the moment, I do not know the names".

'Koscielny is the first captain now, and I have respect for that. "I will choose the best player for that".

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

After making a comeback into the side, he then missed the final four games of the season, reportedly because of his reluctance to sign a new deal with his then-contract expiring in July 2019 and other teams beginning to take an interest, with Arsenal having now won the race for his signature.
