Gary Neville has warned Arsenal that Unai Emery will need four transfer windows to fix the team following their defeat to Manchester City on Sunday.

Emerys reign as Arsenal manager began with a loss as goals in each half from Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva sealed victory for the Premier League champions at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal have spent just over £70 million on new signings this summer, including goalkeeper Bernd Leno, Lucas Torreira and Sokratis Papastathopoulos.

But Neville believes Emery needs three more transfer windows in order to improve Arsenal.

He has to have four transfer windows to make this team his. Its not Chelsea here, by the way, Neville told Sky Sports.

I dont think this is short term, the recruitment has been so bad there over this last three or four years.

Its going to take basically two or three, four transfer windows to sort this out.

This is a great coach, Unai Emery, he needs three or four transfer windows.

I dont care who the coach would be – you could bring Pep Guardiola in here.

It took Pep Guardiola three transfer windows at City, the first one in the summer, the January and then the summer after.

Pep Guardiola, the greatest coach in the world with the biggest budget, its going to take him [Emery] more than that.
