Unai Emery has told the Arsenal board that signing a winger is his next priority in the summer transfer window, according to reports in the British media.

Website Goal, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that Emery is keen to bring a winger to The Emirates as he prepares for his first season in charge at the north London club.

Arsenal have already been busy in the summer transfer market so far, with the Gunners having signed Bernd Leno, Matteo Guendouzi, Stephan Lichtsteiner, Lucas Torreira and Sokratis Papastathopoulos.

However, it is being claimed that Emery still wants to bring an out and out winger to the north London club before the new Premier League season kicks off next month.

Indeed, the same report says that Emery is keen to secure two new signings before the start of the new season.

Emery apparently wants to bring a speedy winger to the club, and the Gunners could also move to bring in a new left-back if Nacho Monreal leaves the north London side this summer.

The Spanish manager has been tasked with steering Arsenal back into the top four next season after having succeeded Arsene Wenger at The Emirates back in May.
