Newcastle not interested in Welbeck deal

Carragher: New Arsenal boss Emery compared to Rafa Benitez

Welbeck's departure would benefit both him and Arsenal; the England forward would get some much-needed game time, and Unai Emery would have some funds freed up to use before tonight's deadline strikes.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has admitted that Manchester City counterpart Pep Guardiola is a "better" manager than him, as the two men prepare to lock horns this weekend. Emery became Arsenal's first new manager since 1996 after Wenger stepped down in May following a 22-year reign. "For me, that is very important", he said.

Finishing 37 points behind City was a fitting ending for the dispiriting final season of the Wenger era - a torrid campaign played out to a soundtrack of angry protests against the manager from frustrated fans. The Arsenal Supporters" Trust insist they are "wholly against the takeover'.

"(On Thursday) the window closed here in the Premier League", Emery told a news conference on Friday.

The 46-year-old Spaniard arrives with an intriguing pedigree, having enjoyed success with PSG, only to pay the price for failing to fulfil the club's desire to win the Champions League.

On the appointments, Emery said: "The captain of this group is Laurent Koscielny, who is injured at the moment".




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.

Wenger opted to step down at the end of last season after nearly 22 years in charge.

Swiss veteran Stephan Lichtsteiner and Greek worldwide Sokratis Papastathopoulos were signed from Juventus and Borussia Dortmund respectively to bolster a creaky defence.

Jenkinson and Campbell have had extensive periods away from the club on loan while goalkeeper Ospina is back-up to new signing Bernd Leno and Petr Cech.

Turkish club Besiktas are willing to trade Croatian star Domagoj Vida to Arsenal today - but the Premier League side failed to raise the cash on time.
