On Thursday, Gunners boss Emery revealed the club have no transfer funds for permanent players.

Emery's side are also in the last 32 of the Europa League where they will face BATE Borisov over two legs next month.

Five players were signed last summer - Bernd Leno, Stephan Lichtsteiner, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Lucas Torreira, Matteo Guendouzi - but all came in for a total outlay of less than £75million. The club is telling me each moment that different situations can happen for recruitment.

"We can not sign permanently", he added.

"I'm part of a squad that has got some stars within it, people who have achieved a lot throughout their entire careers".

Emery has talked up the 30-year-old's quality during the January window, having worked with him at Sevilla.

It is added that the Gunners are leading the race for his signature with manager Emery giving the green light for the club to recruit the former Monaco man.

Emery is also expected to be quizzed on Arsenal's pursuit of Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez as he bids to bolster his squad in January.

Marca says Suarez has always been linked with the Gunners and has previous with boss Unai Emery. I know these players and they are very good players. "In the last match [against Blackpool in the FA Cup] I was very happy with him".

"I am happy because another player can have chances when one player is injured and they are doing well, that is the reason for us being calm and my confidence with the club is big, they are working and if one or two players can come and help us that is flawless".

Koscielny will be eased back gently, though, with Emery explaining: 'It's not easy for him to play three matches in one week, and we pushed him and he was playing three matches during the week, but not ninety minutes each match'.
