Speaking ahead of the Gunners match at Cardiff on Tuesday, Emery said: "This transfer (window) is not easy and the message is that the club is working on different players and the possibility is useful for us.

"We are looking at two different players and the possibility that they can come.

"If they do not come to help us as we want, I prefer that they do not come."


Emery mentioned his reluctance to recruit defensive reinforcements, despite injuries to Sokratis Papastathopoulos (ankle) and Laurent Koscielny (jaw).

The Spaniard added: "We have enough players, central in the team, only we are having a lot of injuries and a lot in this position.

"If we can bring another player and when all the players want to play, we can have a lot of problems in the future."

Sokratis and Koscielny were injured in the FA Cup defeat of last Friday against Manchester United.

Sokratis is expected to come out for "maybe two or three weeks," Emery said, while Koscielny's jaw is bruised, but not broken.

The Frenchman will miss the Premier League clash on Tuesday with Cardiff, but could return for Sunday's trip to the Manchester City champions.
