Emery was appointed as Arsène Wenger's successor at Arsenal this week and is working as part of a set-up in which Raúl Sanllehí and Sven Mislintat, the head of football relations and recruitment respectively, will oversee transfers.

The veteran Swiss global is on the verge of becoming one of head coach Unai Emery's first Gunners signings, according to The Guardian.

Arsenal are attempting to sign Juventus star Stephan Lichtsteiner on a free transfer, according to reports.

David Ospina is the Czech Republican's understudy but in his four years at the Emirates Stadium he's become renowned for making mistakes, too.

Juventus and Manchester United are also interested in the 21-year-old who has a £26million release clause in his contract.

Lichtsteiner, 34, has been targeted by the Gunners as they look to bolster their defence this summer, with Hector Bellerin now the club's only natural right-back. Or it's possible Emery sees the player as a rotation option in his new squad.

The attacking full-back has won the domestic title in each of his seven seasons at Juventus and made 27 Serie A appearances in the campaign that has just finished despite the arrival of Mattia De Sciglio from Milan. I'll play overseas next year but I've not signed anything yet'.

Arsenal fans will undoubtedly hope Emery has something better up his sleeve this summer than Lichtsteiner, but they're actually very happy about the potential signing.

Pellegrini was in good form for Roma this season as he scored three goals in 37 games for the Italian side and helped them to reach the Champions League semi-finals, where they were beaten by Liverpool FC.
