And the Spaniard is already set to bring his former player to the Emirates Stadium before the start of a news season as they hope to make a statement in the Europa League next term.
However, the Gunners have given the power to sign players to their head of recruitment Sven Mislintat, who was nicknamed “Diamond Eye” whilst at Borussia Dortmund.
His impact has however been felt on the Gunners squad with the signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan this January.
Another former Dortmund star is expected to join the north London side soon, with Sokratis Papastathopoulos reportedly on the brink of arrival.
But Emery, as reported by Estadio Deportivo, is still able to influence proceedings, and one area that needs strengthening is defensive midfield.
