EPL: Unai Emery in shock move to Arsenal’s rivals

Unai Emery is set to leave Villarreal to become the new manager of Aston Villa.

The Spaniard will replace Steven Gerrard who was sacked last week by the Premier League.

This was confirmed by football transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano, on Monday night.

Romano tweeted: “Aston Villa are now closing in on Unai Emery appointment, confirmed. Deal is considered set to be completed on a long-term project.

“Villarreal sources again think he’s gone, as reported earlier.

“Villarreal, informed that €6m release clause will be activated by AVFC.”

Emery has previously coached in England’s top flight. He replaced Arsene Wenger in 2018 and led Arsenal to a fifth place finish, missing out by a single point on automatic Champions League qualification.

He was sacked in November 2019, before taking the Villarreal job in July 2020.
