Arsenal manager Unai Emery wants a star player to be signed and transform the club as Virgil Van Dijk did at Liverpool. Emery stated that he has a lot of respect for the work that the club have done in the past in terms of signing and developing players in the academy.
He added that he wants to improve his current batch of players and believes that Arsenal could improve by making signings in the summer window.
“In the past the club have done great work in watching players, finding and signing young players and developing our players in the academy.
“I have big respect for our work, for our players in the academy. I want to develop the players here - giving them progress to achieve something at a big club like we are.
“We can also achieve [buy] some players who are in other teams, who can come here and give us this performance - like Van Dijk with Liverpool."
