Unai Emery In the past few days, former Arsenal manager Unai Emery has been linked with the managerial job at Newcastle United who are looking to reshape the club under the new ownership. To respond to these claims, Unai Emery has said that his focus at the moment is to elevate Villareal in the La Liga and he further clarified that he has not received an offer from Newcastle.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is reportedly working tirelessly to ensure that he at least sharpen his attacking department by landing a world class striker who's set to replace aging Alexandre Lacazette.

According to the latest reports, Arsenal transfer target Andre Onana has agreed to join Ligue 1 side Lyon after negotiations with Arsenal broke down earlier last week. The Senegalese agreed to join the club after he was promised the number one goalkeeper position in the club. Nonetheless, Arsenal seem to have redirected their intentions of signing a goalkeeper after Hale End academy graduate Arthur Okwonkwo recently penned a five-year contract with the London-based club and it is highly likely that he will take Matt Ryan’s position as the second choice goalkeeper.
According to reports, Arsenal is still keen on signing Torino talisman Andrea Belloti in the summer transfer window despite rumors linking the player with a move to AS Roma. Although the two teams have made their interest known, neither of them has made contact with Torino over the potential transfer.
Arteta was rumored to be looking to release some of his players in order to bring in new players back in June, according to reports from London. Lacazette was rumored to be one of the players leaving, so Arteta was on the lookout for a striker. Many strikers were considered for the job at Arsenal, but Arteta and Edu settled on Torino's Andrea Belloti.
