"Always in football you need luck, I had the luck when the ball came through to me and then I scored", Atsu said of his Verona strike.

Speaking on the Sky Sports' Premier League launch show, the Spaniard admitted it had been a tough summer due to the uncertainty of the transfer market.

"I like the player because I have good friends in A Coruña", Benitez was quoted as saying by the Chronicle after the 2-0 win over Hellas Verona.

Deportivo La Coruna are betting on the will of Newcastle United target Lucas Perez and the rapidly closing transfer window in their pursuit of the Arsenal striker.

But Benitez is unhappy that other Newcastle targets have been missed although he admitted that it has been hard.

"We missed some targets at the beginning and we are paying for that, but hopefully we can find some solutions".
