Despite Marotta saying they have not received an offer for Perisic, reports suggest Arsenal proposed an initial loan deal with an option to by the player for £34.5 million (R619 million).

Croatia's World Cup star, Ivan Perisic were linked with a move to the Emirates and the Gunners approached Inter Milan for signing him on loan. The player has expressed this desire, we want to satisfy him but we also need to respect the value of the player. "I know the club are doing all they can to achieve one player to help us".

However, there are a number of problematic positions in the team and the Gunners are now trying to take full advantage of the ongoing transfer window to enhance their team.

"I have had experience with different teams, teams like Sevilla and Valencia, where usually we sold players each season", he said.

"The easiest thing for me is to ask for more players but I love to work with my players".

However, Emery played down suggestions that the Gunners will be forced sign a centre-back in January, with Laurent Koscielny, Sokratis and Rob Holding all now out injured.

Sokratis has been ruled out until the end of February with an ankle injury while Koscielny is "being reviewed on a daily basis" after bruising his jaw.

But he could now get his move to the Premier League - with United's rivals Arsenal. "In the Premier League we are pushing to be in the top four".

"We have enough players like a centre-back in the squad", Emery told a press conference ahead of Arsenal's clash against Cardiff City. "We're having a lot of injuries and a lot in this position".
