Arsenal have yet to make any signings this summer with Emery hampered by his £45million transfer budget after missing out on Champions League football for 2019-20.

Arsenal appeared primed to reach a £27million deal with the Ligue 1 club, which would see Saliba loaned back to France for a season and the fee paid in instalments, Tottenham are now prepared to match their north London rivals and are said to have offered more add-ons despite the same initial amount.

Emery is also no closer to landing a winger having had a £40m bid rejected for £80m-rated Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha while Arsenal have appeared reluctant to meet the asking price for the coach's other targets out wide, Bournemouth's Ryan Fraser and Yannick Carrasco of Chinese side Dalian Yifang.

While he thinks Emery is a better coach than Frank Lampard at Chelsea and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United, Hislop thinks the two former players will outperform Arsenal this season unless the Londoners add to their squad. "Unai Emery is a very accomplished coach," declared Hislop on ESPN FC. "Compare him to the current managers of both Chelsea and Manchester United, I'd have Unai Emery."

"Right now, all the signals coming out of Arsenal are that they don't seem to be really backing him."

"There is still a little bit of time but if nothing happens, as we sit right now, even with lesser managers in Lampard and Solskjaer, I think Chelsea and United fare better than Arsenal."

Captain Laurent Koscielny meanwhile wants to leave Arsenal after refusing to travel for the club's pre-season tour of the United States for games against Bayern Munich, Fiorentina and Real Madrid.
