With his old players and the top talents from his old clubs being touted, one name emerges as a potential move that could benefit both clubs and the player involved in the deal.
Having excelled last season on loan at Villarreal, the Spanish manager opted to once again renew that deal and keep Giovani Lo Celso on a temporary basis.
Now that the 50-year-old has returned to English football, Spurs expert John Wenham has claimed that his first move in the market could be to reunite himself with the Argentine who has struggled at Tottenham Hotspur.
Although he may have struggled in England, he has shown in his two stints in Spain the quality that demanded such a fee, as further supported by journalist David Cartlidge, who was baffled that nobody had moved to sign the “very, very special player” sooner.
Perhaps it will only take his former manager to unlock his potential in the Premier League.
He could provide the perfect partner to go alongside Leander Dendoncker, who was also signed in the summer and has impressed since coming into the first team.
Having featured 84 times for Spurs, he boasts plenty of experience in English football, despite the supposed lack of quality.
When put in the right system, he can be a skilful yet tough midfielder with the capabilities to bag plenty of goals from deep.
Following his exploits for the Yellow Submarine, in which he played a huge part in their Champions League success last season, he could be poised to be handed another chance to prove himself at this level.
On that run, he was particularly lauded for his performance to knock out Bayern Munich from the competition.
It could be the dream start to Emery’s reign at the club, by bringing in one of his favoured players for a cut-price deal.
