Arsenal announced the appointment of Emery Unai as their new manager on Wednesday and he will work under a similar structure as his previous two clubs, according to the Mirror.

The Spaniard has agreed to work under the club’s new transfer structure where deals will be completed for him, a system Mikel Arteta reportedly refused to work under as he wanted full control of transfers.

Emery is not new to this system as he worked under similar setups at Sevilla and Paris Saint Germain, though during his time at Almeria and Valencia he was in control of transfers, and he earned himself a reputation for being a shrewd dealer which is quite similar to the man he is replacing at Arsenal.

Arsenal are reported to have just £50 million earmarked to spend this summer as missing out on the Champions league and spending big in recent times seems to be taking a toll on the club’s finances, but that wouldn’t be his problem since he will not be in charge of recruitment.

The Gunners are in the hunt for at least one defender and a central midfielder with Borussia Dortmund’s Sokratis Papstathopoulos and Jean-Micheal Seri respective targets for the positions.

They are also said to be interested in a goalkeeper, with Bernd Leno a target, however it’ll be up to Sven Mislintat to identify the targets and Huss Fahmy working on getting the deals done under the new setup which is said to have been laid down by Ivan Gazidis and Head of Football Raul Sanllehi.

What do you think of this new setup? Let’s know your opinion in the comment section below.
