Arsenal midfielder, Henrikh Mkhitaryan has revealed what he expects from the club's new manager, Unai Emery. I think that's about battling for every title.

The process of replacing the outgoing Frenchman had seemingly led former club captain Mikel Arteta - now working as an assistant to Pep Guardiola at Manchester City - to the job. Arsene Wenger's successor appeared alongside chief executive Ivan Gazidis at a news conference at the Emirates to lay out his plans for how to turn the Gunners back into title contenders.

"Thank you, Arsene Wenger, for your legacy".

"I still haven't had an opportunity to meet him".

"I believe in the players who are here".

Wenger departed at the end of the season following a 22-year reign, with the club finishing sixth in the league - 37 points behind champions Manchester City - and failing to qualify for the Champions League for a second straight term.

"In football there is always a new challenge".

Emery, who won three consecutive Europa Leagues with Sevilla before spending two years at Paris Saint-Germain, winning a domestic treble this past season, was one of eight candidates who went through an extensive interview process, Gazidis said.

Gazidis played a key role in Emery's appointment, along with head of football relations Raul Sanllehi and head of recruitment Sven Mislintat. "The first meeting with Arsenal people was with those three who, after three hours, gave me a very good feeling for how we will work together and create a new future for Arsenal", he said.

Gazidis said that Emery had been hugely impressive in his May 10th interview, when he had "an analysis of our individual players, their qualities and how he feels he can help them develop individually and collectively in detail".

We'll have to settle for more basic lines from Emery - at least until he gets more settled in - but he also brings a more youthful energy compared to Wenger, who often gave the impression that he had seen and heard it all before, which he had. And I want that to continue.

"We're delighted to welcome Unai to Arsenal", Kroenke said.

Emery, a three-time Europa League victor with Sevilla, called on Ozil to commit to the cause, saying: "He's one of the biggest talents here and I want talented players here". Our objective is to be among the best in Europe, so those are the two objectives.

Before that, Emery impressed greatly at Sevilla, despite having to sell the club's best players on a regular basis.
