Speaking after Thursday’s win over Hibernian, Emery was asked about Lenglet and said: “He’s not completely signed, but he’s close to signing with us.
“He’s a player who can help us. With the injury to Tyrone Mings, he can replace him in the squad.”
Emery also said it “was possible” that Philippe Coutinho could leave the club on Friday and added: “I’m very happy with our squad.
“The club made a big effort to complete our squad. There’s still one day to go and we’re going to be ready.”
