Unless a "big opportunity" arises, Arsenal boss Unai Emery says he won't feel the need to make any further summer signings.

Ivan Gazidis building Arsenal legacy, but with no Arsene Wenger there is no excuse

Former Arsenal midfielder Stewart Robson shares his thoughts on how Sampdoria's Lucas Torreira would fit in at the Emirates.

Ivan Gazidis may feel he deserves a bit more credit. Over the past year he has skillfully negotiated a potential political nightmare by removing Arsene Wenger and installing a modern and progressive power structure at Arsenal.
