Press conference

Emery on Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Keylor Navas

Unai Emery held his first pre-match press conference of 2019 on Thursday afternoon - and with the January window now open, our head coach fielded plenty of transfer-related questions.

Real Madrid’s Keylor Navas, Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Ozil were all talking points, and here’s what Emery said when asked about the trio.

on reports linking Navas with Arsenal…
Not true.

on if there’s interest…
I don’t know. We never speak about one goalkeeper because I think - and it’s true - we are very happy with the three goalkeepers we have now. We’ve never spoken about Keylor Navas.

on if there have been talks with Juventus about Ramsey…
I don’t know. I want his focus every day with us on training and thinking for the next match, which is against Blackpool. I am looking at him and he’s very concentrated with us now. On Tuesday, he scored when he played 15 minutes, and he gave a good performance. I want that from him, and also he needs to [look] at his future. But I want him in the present with us. At the end of the season is the moment he can go to one team or another team.

on Ozil's future at the club…
I am only waiting [for him] to be OK to play.

on if Ozil could be involved…
This morning, he didn’t train.
