When asked if Arsenal were interested in Navas, 32, Emery said: “Not true.”
The former PSG boss added he was very happy with Arsenal’s three first-team goalkeepers Leno, Cech and Emiliano Martinez.
“I don’t know. We never speak about one goalkeeper because I think – and it’s true – we are very happy with the three goalkeepers we have now. We’ve never spoken about Keylor Navas.”
The Gunners boss has also revealed his verdict on Aaron Ramsey potential move amid Juventus interest.

“I don’t know. I want his focus every day with us on training and thinking for the next match, which is against Blackpool,” added Emery, speaking at his pre-match news conference ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup clash.
“I’m looking at him and he’s very concentrated with us now. On Tuesday, he scored when he played 15 minutes, and he gave a good performance. I want that from him, and also he needs to [look] at his future.”
