Unai Emery admits Arsenal can only afford to make loan signings in the January transfer window – but insists he will be happy with his squad if the Gunners fail to add any new recruits.

With the club keen to add a defender and a winger to their ranks, head coach Emery has confirmed there is no money available to land permanent targets.

The Spaniard also said he would be happy if no signings were made throughout the month.

Arsenal sit fifth in the Premier League and have an upcoming FA Cup fourth round tie at home to Manchester United.

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.

A new contract for Mesut Ozil, making him the highest-paid player in the club's history, and signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang 12 months ago for a club-record fee have played a part in the lack of funds as Emery conceded the winter window will be more frugal for Arsenal.

He said: "We cannot sign permanently. We can only loan players. Only loan players. I can say to you that the club is working, the club is telling me the different situations in each moment. At the moment, we haven't had any news today about that."

While the club work on loan targets, Emery said he would be content to work with the players he has over the remainder of the season.

Emery added: "We are working with the players who are with us now. Also, we are giving chances to the young players and finding with them the regularity to be consistent when we need them to be.

"I am very happy, I know it is not easy for us now in this transfer market and if we can find one player who can help us like we need, with the quality and a different player for getting in our squad, we are going to do it.

"But I am happy with every player today, it is really some injuries that didn't help us in the last matches because we struggled with different injuries with the players.

"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 perfect."

Arsenal have been linked with Barcelona winger Denis Suarez, Yannick Carrasco of Dalian Yifang and Ever Banega from Emery's former club Sevilla.

Asked specifically about a move for Suarez, Emery said: "I don't know his situation now. We can only sign players later on. I know the club is working on possibilities of which players can help us with big performances like we need now."

9am Man Utd news: Solskjaer backs Pochettino, Pogba fit, Jose Mourinho to earn United £10m

Here's the latest transfer talk, team news and rumours from the Red Devils.

JOSE MOURINHO claimed he has ‘no intention’ of managing Benfica as a return to Real Madrid is still open.
Mourinho was sacked by Manchester United in December after two-and-a-half seasons in charge at Old Trafford.

Youngster Joshua Bohui is being tracked by both Barcelona and Monaco after refusing to extend his stay at the Red Devils.

JOSE MOURINHO is already back in football after being hired as a pundit for beIN Sports.
The sacked Manchester United boss, 55, is set to appear on screen for the first time since his firing — as an analyst for coverage of the Asian Cup.

Luk at yourselves

MANCHESTER UNITED fans should get behind Romelu Lukaku — because he is "an unbelievable striker" and a "great person".
That is the view of his Belgium team-mate and Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s ‘jewel’ in Southampton academy Kayne Ramsay who left Chelsea for Saints

WHEN the teamsheets came flying out the printer at St. Mary's for Southampton's final game of 2018, there was a surprise addition to the list.

Ralph Hasenhuttl was taking charge of his third home game since replacing Mark Hughes as Saints boss and decided to show his mantra when it comes to youth.

 Kayne Ramsay became the youngest player to compete in the Premier League this season

Despite their opponents for the day, Pep Guardiola's free-scoring champions Manchester City, Hasenhuttl had named Kayne Ramsay in his defence.

It marked a landmark moment for the teenager by making his debut, but also for the Premier League.

At the age of 18 years and 81 days, Ramsay became the youngest player in the top tier to start a match this campaign, surpassing Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon and Tottenham's Oliver Skipp.

On the Thursday evening before the game, team-mate Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg had waited behind at training to see if young Ramsay needed a lift home. Three days later, he was playing alongside him in defence.

Ramsay's rise can be seen as that debut came just three months after signing his first professional contract.

It was a baptism of fire for the youngster but his relegation-threatened team managed a respectable 3-1 defeat to City.

Boss Hasenhuttl had spoke about giving "jewels in the academy" a chance and he was impressed with the youngster.

The new coach said: "It was a very important game for Kayne and I think he did a good job.

 Ramsay signed his first pro contract in September at St Mary's
 Ramsay was part of a Chelsea side that dominated the youth divisions

"I think he will learn a lot as it was one of the best teams in the world we came up against. It's an amazing experience for such a young guy like he is."

Ramsay joined a star-studded list of alumni at Saints, following in the footsteps of Gareth Bale, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Luke Shaw and Adam Lallana to emerge from the academy.

Yet the youngster's formative years were spent 65 miles up the M3 at Chelsea's Cobham training base.

Ramsay joined the Blues in 2008 as an eight-year-old and was part of a strong youth side that rose through the ranks.

"Coming from Chelsea, I feel like I've fully settled now," Ramsay said in September.

"I know what's expected of me now. The club have supported me on and off the pitch so I'm sure this is the right place for me."

Hasenhuttl clearly agrees.
