GETTY Mesut Ozil took a hammering as Germany crashed out of the World Cup

He said: 'We are here to help everyone and Mesut is very important.

"I know him but we haven't made a move for him". With all the players I want to give them confidence, to give them a chance every day in their work.

Arsenal confirmed the arrival of Matteo Guendouzi, 19, on Wednesday but he is likely to be one for the future despite Emery's insistence the former Lorient midfielder is ready to fight for a first team place. "I want to work with him with a new way and with an ambition to continue with this quality and to help him to get better with the team".

Leno: He also comes from the German league and I think this is a very, very high [quality] league.

Arsenal finished sixth, a staggering 37 points behind champions Manchester City. The performances, every day, for work on attacking, defending, is to be competitive in each match.

"I explained to him my opinion and how I wanted to create the team and that I said to him I was unsure if he is going to play in the XI players".

"And the quality of the global players, we want them to come quickly and to start with us".

He added that it's still unclear whether Ozil and players like Granit Xhaka and new signing Stephan Lichtsteiner will be back in time for the team's preseason trip to Singapore later this month or if they'll join up with the squad when they return from Asia.

The Germany midfielder signed a new contract at the Emirates Stadium in January and despite missing the last three games of Arsene Wenger's Gunners' reign, he was fit to play for his country during their disappointing World Cup campaign that saw them finish bottom of their group in Russian Federation. "And Steve, first, as a person is very good, and he was a player here also", Emery said.
