Former Gunner Ray Parlour believes Unai Emery is already making plans on strengthening his squad when the January transfer window opens.

Emery took over from Arsene Wenger in the summer and was significantly busy in the transfer window signing the likes of Bernd Leno, Lucas Torreira, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Matteo Guendouzi and Stephan Lichtsteiner all arrived through the door.

But Parlour still reckons the former Sevilla boss should look to bring in another centre-back in January.

“I don’t know. I really don’t know,” Parlour told Express Sport when asked what signings Emery will be looking to make in the New Year.

“I’m sure they’ll be positions he wants to.

“For me centre-half he could probably strengthen.

“But he’s got [Laurent] Koscielny coming back, they’ve missed him, but he’s a little bit older but I’m sure he’s working hard to get back in the side so I think he’ll assess the situation when it comes to January.

“He’ll be lining people up anyway.”

One defender the Gunners have been linked with is Manchester United’s Eric Bailly.
