We’re all waiting to see who Unai Emery’s first signing will be.

How about 34-year-old Swiss right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner?

He’s been linked with a move to the Emirates before, but now it looks like that deal is edging closer.

After spending the last seven years with Juventus, he is soon to be a free agent and able to talk to clubs outside Italy and sign a pre-contract agreement.

The Evening Standard report that Lichtsteiner has visited Arsenal’s London Colney training ground and although terms have not yet been agreed between the Swiss captain a deal could be announced in the coming days.

Lichtsteiner, who has won eight league titles over his career, will provide a strong voice in the dressing room and on the pitch – but will probably be a squad player rather than a regular starter.
