Arsenal legend Ian Wright believes the gunners have made interesting signings this summer, securing the signatures of five new players to the squad.

The situation alerted Arsenal with Sky Italia journalist Gianluza Di Marzio claiming earlier this month that the Gunners were in pole position to sign Gomes after Unai Emery had identified him as a summer target.

Arsenal's first senior pre-season friendly sees them take on Atletico Madrid on July 26.

Great momentum in this window. We will only sign another player if there is an opportunity to bring in that one player, or two players. Great season & WC for Torreira and he could slot straight in but will need some time to settle.

Asked why Ramsey has not signed a new deal with Arsenal, Emery replied: 'This is one question for the player and for the club. Emery remains open minded about adding to that list if "a big opportunity" comes up.

I want to win every game - that's really important to me.

I want to work with him.

. I want to establish myself here, which would be incredible. "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". Then, we are looking at, looking for, who are the players whose personality is the best in the dressing room.
