Tottenham are ready to scupper Arsenal's plans to sign Andre Gomes after joining their rivals in the race to sign the Barcelona midfielder this summer, according to reports via TeamTalk.

"We signed the players who we needed and only if one player is a big opportunity for us will we sign them", he added.

Arsenal appointed Unai Emery as gunners new boss in May and the new Gunners manager is getting set for his first match in control and has addressed the media for the first time.

But there was also the departure of Wilshere, which raised eyebrows among many fans after a solid season.

Speaking to the media, as reported by the Mirror, Emery expressed his delight to have the Welshman at the Emirates. "The conversation with Wilshere was a very good conversation".

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.

"And also he explained to me the decision is not easy for him". Every time it was with respect.

"In my opinion, I've said to Ivan, Raul and Sven that I think he's an important player for me". But I don't give him a place in the starting 11. "It's for that he chose to leave here and I respect this".

Guendouzi will battle it out with new Arsenal signing Lucas Torreira, Switzerland global Granit Xhaka and African star Mohamed Elneny for a starting spot in the middle of the park.

Santi Cazorla and Per Mertesacker have joined Wilshere in leaving though Mertesacker is still coaching with Aresnal's academy.

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.

"The big clubs don't close the [door] or the moment to sign a new player. Only if he is a big opportunity".
