Emery has entered the second year of his three-year contract at Arsenal.

However, the Gunners have a break clause that they can trigger if they so wish after two seasons.

Arsenal missed out on Champions League qualification last season, finishing the campaign terribly to fall out of the Premier League top four and lose the Europa League final.

So far only young Brazilian striker Gabriel Martinelli has been signed in the transfer market.

And Robson reckons a poor start to the upcoming campaign could mean things end badly for Emery.

“It was a disappointing campaign,” Robson told ESPN FC.

“They could have got in the top four last year, but they fell away at the end.

“They could have won the Europa League but they did’t and fell away against Chelsea.

“It needed restructuring, they lost a lot of players like [Aaron] Ramsey, Petr Cech has gone which I think is probably a good thing now.

“I think there’s a whole list of players that have left Arsenal.

“They’ve brought one player in, Martinelli from Brazil.

“They need a lot of new players, they need a new philosophy.

“I think Unai Emery may be running out of time.

“He hasn’t got the bloke they brought in to do the transfers [Sven Mislintat], he’s left, so he obviously didn’t get on with Unai Emery.

“Unai Emery needs a good start to the season.

“If he doesn’t get it, he is going to be under massive pressure.

“If he doesn’t buy players and doesn’t seem to get the team in the right shape for the start of the season, Arsenal are going to struggle.”
