Arsenal have had a successful transfer window which has given their fans optimism going into the season.
With the fight for the top four more competitive than ever, the Gunners have splashed the cash.
They landed six players in David Luiz, Dani Ceballos, Nicolas Pepe, Kieran Tierney, Gabriel Martinelli and William Saliba – though he has been loaned back to Saint-Etienne.
It came despite reports that the north London outfit only had £45m to spend in the summer – instead the figure was closer to £140m.
However, it has left some players marginalised and the club are now under pressure to sell.
Mohamed Elneny and Shkodran Mustafi have been ostracised from first-team squad this year.
And Emery wants to bin them both before the European transfer deadline closes on September 2.
“We have some players and they know their situation. For example, Elneny and Mustafi, they know their situation in the squad,” Emery said.
“I want the players to be happy here, I want the players to be protagonists here, and last year, for example, with Mustafi and Mo, when they didn’t play, they weren’t happy.
“I spoke with them a lot of times last year in this position and I think it is positive for them to leave and to sign for another team where they can be protagonists, they can be happy and can continue their careers as players.
“They are very big players but here for one circumstance or another circumstance they are going to have less chances to show their capacity or to be happy with us taking minutes of playing matches.
“They know the situation, I am wishing the best for them and I think now the best for them is to be protagonists in another team, to sign and to get another challenge for them and continue with another team.
“But with [a lot of] respect, they are training with us but they know their situation and I am wishing only the best for them.”
Arsenal prepare to take on their biggest test of the season yet when they face Liverpool at Anfield tomorrow.
Record-signing Pepe has been eased into the first-team fold but Emery insists the Ivorian is ready to step up and take main stage.
“The most important thing is, like a person, to help him and his family to feel comfortable here,” Emery said.
“Now he is three weeks into working here with us. He didn’t do the pre-season here but he’s progressively feeling better.
“For example, in the first match, he played 15 minutes in Newcastle, then he played 45 minutes against Burnley. I think his individual performances are progressively getting better.”
