Unai Emery’s time at Arsenal isn’t fondly remembered in and around the Emirates, but the Spaniard did target a few brilliant players. Christopher Nkunku was one of them at the start of 2019.
The Gunners were on the market looking for a versatile midfielder who could also play on the flanks. Nkunku was heavily linked with a reunion with Emery at Arsenal, but the Gunners couldn’t afford him then.
Arsenal were only looking for a loan deal, but PSG were adamant that they would only sell him. The Gunners decided against a deal then and Emery went on to sign another one of his former players, Denis Suarez, on loan. (BBC)
