When a new manager arrives at a club, players need to go all out to impress the new figure, and that is no different at Arsenal.
Unai Emery will lead the North London outfit into a new era after he was appointed as successor to long-standing coach Arsene Wenger.
The Spaniard has made two signings so far in this window, including right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner and goalkeeper Bernd Leno.
Other areas of the defence could do with a tweak, while the midfield also needs addressing following the departure of Jack Wilshere.
According to The Mirror, there are five players within the squad that Emery deem ‘untouchable’, meaning that no amount of cash will persuade him into selling.
They include Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Alexandre Lacazette, Granit Xhaka and Hector Bellerin.
