Unai Emery: "We are finding the possibility to add another centre back.”


Unai Emery says the Arsenal are eager to sign a central defender before the window closes on Thursday.

The Gunners have been linked with top defenders across Europe, including David Luiz who is reportedly interested in a move to the Emirates after refusing to train with the Chelsea squad today.

"If we can on the last day, we will try to sign another centre back, but one who has the capacity to help us," Emery told Sky Sports News.

"We have a lot of defensive players. Maybe, it is different when Laurent Koscielny tells us he wanted to leave. 

"We are finding the possibility to add another centre back, but only if he can help us in our performance. We are working on that. 

"I'm happy with our defensive players. We are working in the last minute, we are also taking the possibility that we can add some more players who can help us with good performance.

"We tried to sign some important, expensive players for our defence. But when we can't do that, the second line players don't really convince us to sign them."
