Research proves Emery to be transfer market master - could he overcome Arsenal's financial issues?
- Players sale profit the PL bosses have made throughout their entire career has been revealed.
- Clubs benefit from reselling the Spaniard's signings.
- The positive difference averages £3m.
- It suggests the 47-year-old knows how to work with a limited budget & how to develop players.
The Sportsman, a reputable stats and date agency, have analysed sell-on profit or loss of all signings the 19 Premier League managers have made throughout their entire career.
As it stands, clubs tend to cash in on players acquired by Unai Emery when they are offloaded later on. A positive difference averages £3m. The 47-year-old has recorded the fourth-highest gain of all top-flight bosses and the highest within the Big Six.
The observation leads to 3 key conclusions:
- the Spaniard's no stranger to working with a limited budget and knows how to raise funds;
- the Gunners' manager develops players with their value consequently growing;
- the Basque specialist makes the right choices on the transfer market.
With the Northern Londoners' moderate financial capabilities this summer and no evidence it would change in the future, such takeaways imply Emery could turn things around in the long run.
