Newcastle United Not Battling Everton and Southampton For Danny Welbeck

Aaron Ramsey

Representatives of Ladbrokes Alex Apati said: "Welbeck could well have played his last game for Arsenal and the latest betting suggests it's Southampton who'll seal a deal for the England forward".

Emery has said all summer that he would name five captains of the squad, with Koscielny now named as the No. 1 among them even though the centre-back isn't expected back until December at the earliest because of a torn Achilles tendon.

"Today, we had a meeting with the players to close all the possibilities to bring more players". For now, Southampton are a real option, primarily if he seeks regular first-team football, or Bournemouth, but Everton, another prospective suitor, might not want him now.

"I met the Kroenke family in Atlanta and he gave us his commitment in this project with Arsenal", added Emery.

Unai Emery also says that his message to the players on Sunday will be optimism when they face off against Manchester City who recently defeated Chelsea 2-0 to win the FA Community Shield, but the gunners will also be hoping to be at their best when they welcome them at the Emirates Stadium. To continue working I want one thing because it's very important for the players to take confidence in our work, in ourselves. "You need building all the time". Former Paris Saint-Germain manager Unai Emery has taken over the reins at Arsenal from club legend Arsene Wenger in what will be a completely new experience for many Gunners fans.

Emery speaks English far from fluently but his command of the language has improved since his appointment in May and he hopes his team have made similar strides during the summer. "We are to think only to win the match". He started his career as a bigger player than me.

"But we are starting a new way, a new process with the same players and the new players, the new coaches. If we are good and consistent like last season then we have a good chance". I want those two moments to feel the same for all players.
