Arsenal legend Robert Pires believes new manager Unai Emery is the club's best acquisition this summer.

Former Paris Saint-Germain boss Emery was unveiled as Arsenal's new head coach back in May following Arsene Wenger's decision to step down as manager at the Emirates.

Uruguay worldwide Lucas Torreira and teenager Matteo Guendouzi became Arsenal's latest arrivals last week, while long-serving midfielder Jack Wilshere left the club earlier this month to join league rivals West Ham United.

He told Sky Sports: 'The best signing for me is Unai Emery, the manager.

'Of course I believe in the players, and especially the new players. He knows he's at a big club, and has a lot of pressure, but I think he has a big character and spirit.

Emery changed all 11 players at the break, but it did little to disrupt the flow as Eddie Nketiah clipped home from close range eight minutes after the restart.

Seville newspaper Estadio Deportivo says that Steven N'Zonzi received a message from Arsenal's manager Unai Emery congratulating him on the winning of the World Cup since he is French and was among those that played the final in Russian Federation on Saturday.

The north London side kick off their pre-season on Saturday with a friendly against Boreham Wood.

The 29-year-old also saw his form and commitment to Arsenal questioned during the latter stages of last season, with former Gunners defender Martin Keown claiming Ozil was not "giving everything" for the common cause.
