Don't we learn? our first offer for Perez was half the asking price and we wanted to pay in instalments. sorry to say but we aren't a big club at all if we can't pay 17 million!

But it's a start. I for one will get behind our new signing and next in is mustfi and I still think Wenger has one up his sleeve.

If he does it will surely get stuck in his cuff!

this is it. if you think we are signing another player after an entire summer to sign the CB we wanted for the price they wanted at the beginning, and a striker we bought as we didn't want to pony up for the real deal, you may just need a vacation to calm your senses.

{Ed041's Note - I think perez will play right side, like he did most of last season.

Agree0 Disagree2

26 Aug 2016 14:52:48
Well if perez is going to play on the right, i think we need to sell walcott, not sure who will pony up for him, but i think we need to drum up interest in him and sell him.

Good luck on negotiating Theo's wage drop Larker :-) Theo is an Arsenal player for the duration of his contract and who can blame him, 7 million a year with Arsenal or 2.5 million else where? Because I'd be surprised if anyone was prepared to go above 50k a week for a hit and miss 27 year old.

Ed after we sign mustafi and perez do u see anyone else coming in? Like a deadline day big transfer?

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 21:39:51
Swap for Sturidge.

Agree0 Disagree1

26 Aug 2016 21:22:37
Arsenal will sign a big name I think before they close the window. Wenger has said its going to be a busy few days, who is out there and not over priced. If it were your money who would you buy?

Agree0 Disagree1

26 Aug 2016 22:03:48
Javier hernandez, jermain defoe, harry kane or loic remy.

Agree1 Disagree4

27 Aug 2016 08:10:07
Should have signed Mustafi, Mahrez and Lacazette. Penny pinching again.

Agree0 Disagree1

27 Aug 2016 08:20:53
Why stop there? if money and availability are no object, I'll take Messi and Neymar too.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2016 08:57:33
Pretty much all transfers are paid in instalments so that isn't the problem.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Aug 2016 11:07:46
Harry would be out of the question I think. Defoe would score Arsenal goals that's for sure. The amount you create I think he'd be good for 15+.

Agree0 Disagree1

27 Aug 2016 17:25:47
Ed any interest in brozovic? The inter lad? And has interest in lacazette died now?

{Ed025's Note - no news on brosovic apex and lacazette would cost over £50m so that sems unlikely mate..

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2016 19:14:26
Thank u in advance by the way.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 21:42:22
Eds is it true that were close to signing both Perez and mustafi I'd be happy with them at least looks like Wenger is trying.

{Ed041's Note - u have watched both is all I know, going by reports it would suggest so.

Assuming, as is beginning to sound likely, we sign Perez and Mustafi, it is probably about as good as it gets in this window, as I can't think of any better players in their positions, that are available and at a realistic fee.

Is Lacazette as good as people think, or are we getting that desperate that we cling to the thought that he is quality. The signing of Mustafi, will give us decent options at CB, with him, Koscileny, Gabriel and Holding.

The rumours sound true, as Chambers is being touted about for a loan, which wouldn't have happened if we didn't have a CB lined up. The final piece in the summer jigsaw, is to replace Debuchy, if he departs, as seems likely.

I think Mustafi and Holding can both cover at RB and with Mertesacker back in December, we may not sign a RB. If that is the case, Debuchy should be kept until the January window.

25 Aug 2016 19:25:05
You forget we have Sir Jenkinson coming back too!

Agree2 Disagree1

26 Aug 2016 08:52:07
For me Lacazette for is in the same 'league' (maybe a touch better) than Michy Batshuayi. Perez has little resale value and had 1 good season in a top league but represents a risk. Thus Lacazette being pursued in the first instance. We'd have been watching Perez for months though.

Agree1 Disagree2

26 Aug 2016 10:40:10
I don't watch much Ligue 1 football but if Lacazette is better thank Batshauyi like everyone says he is then he is one amazing striker as Michy has been doing wonders for Chelsea already.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 14:08:38
IMO Ligue 1 in France is not a top league. I think it currently sits well below the EPL, Spain and Germany and probably on average sits somewhere at a level between the EPL and Championship, bar a few good teams. If not, why are virtually all the top French players playing outside France, and why have french clubs only ever won the European cup once in its history (Marseille in 1992) ? Its why i never really got people assuming that Lacazette is this super player and instant saviour of Arsenal. He may prove to be good, but currently he is playing at a lower level so it would be a massive and expensive gamble to just assume he would slot straight into the EPL.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Aug 2016 23:36:38
Hackney we hadn't been watching perez. He was actually offeted to arsenal two weeks ago, we declined because he wasn't on out radar and signed him this week. The truth is he was available.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 19:13:51
Is there any real interest in Romagnoli from Chelsea Ed and could we possibly turn to him with doubts over Mustafi?

{Ed001's Note - as far as I am aware, Chelsea are intent on Koulibaly. I don't know of any interest from Arsenal either.}

Hello ed, any interest in lucas perez?

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 13:25:29
Mangala and sakho might be available and we are desperate.

Believable2 Unbelievable7

23 Aug 2016 13:32:12
Mangala would be worse then a stick of butter plonked at centre half.

Sakho has his merits.

Agree1 Disagree2

23 Aug 2016 13:38:33
I hope we're not that desperate mate!

Mangala had potential but looks a trainwreck in the prem, plus they'd probably want close to the £32m paid.

Sakho, I think is a decent defender, but he just seems to have so many little problems off the field and a bit of an attitude too, I'm not a Liverpool fan and don't watch him often, so could be wrong and he could be great/ utter rubbish, but from my limited knowledge, a wide berth mah be the best idea.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 14:59:45
ed i know u probably think i am stupid but is balotelli and option? I know he's annoying but he has talent which arsene can get out of him.

{Ed041's Note - why would u ever want him?

Agree2 Disagree9

23 Aug 2016 16:17:06
I would take Mangala over Sakho, and my Liverpool friend agrees with me!

Caceres is available on a free apparently?

At this point I don't even want Wenger to spend any more money, just leave it for the next manager.

Agree1 Disagree2

23 Aug 2016 17:35:21
Apex. you have officially lost it mate. Balotelli?

I'd rather we had Carl Jenkinson up front.

Agree4 Disagree2

23 Aug 2016 19:35:23
I thunk mangala could become a decent defender he started well at city but at the moment even Johnny Evans is better than nothing.

Agree0 Disagree2

24 Aug 2016 13:13:42
Feed the Jenk
And he will score.

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Aug 2016 03:23:35
I'm not too worried, we often leave our business late. Can take a while for dominos to start falling but they can fall pretty quickly. maybe I'm being too optimistic but I suspect there will be someone signed this week.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 23:26:16
What's this small rumour about arsenal being in contact with A Madrid over griezman?

Believable1 Unbelievable10

22 Aug 2016 23:47:46
Think you had the wrong glasses on mate.

It actually said, 'Arsenal in contact with West Brom over Johnny Evans'.

Agree10 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 00:26:04
'In contact'?

This sounds an awful lot like the start of the reason why I've a 200 feet restraining order from Natalie Dormer.

Agree9 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 10:02:24
Even if we are, which I very much doubt, we need an out and out striker and a CB, as well as cover at RB, unless Debuchy stays. Clubs know our desperation, so signing players will only be at inflated prices. Even Xhaka at over £30m, compared to Wanyama at £11m, doesn't make sense.

Agree4 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 10:24:58
Only saying what I've seen lads lol.

Agree2 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 13:14:47
If we truly are turning to Johnny Evans, this club is in even greater turmoil than we all think.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 10:48:37
I can imagine the answer but I'm going to ask anyway, is it true we've bid £41.9mil for draxler? Thanks ed's, fantastic works as usual.

{Ed001's Note - sorry mate, as far as I know it is not true. At least that you have made a bid. I have asked if there has been any kind of communication regarding him, but haven't got any answer on that yet.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

22 Aug 2016 11:40:18
Cheers ed, i thought as much tbh. Just out of curiousity how do you get hold of all your info? I take it you have sources close to arsenal and other EPL clubs.

{Ed001's Note - it varies on the club. Lots of talking to people involved in the game, agents etc. The best info is the stuff you get just by having a normal conversation though, rather than when you have to chase it. Some of the things that can be found out is very enlightening, especially if you are able to piece it together with little titbits someone else has said while not mentioning names.}

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 12:13:52
So do you know anything on the arsenal front if we are actually going for players so for asking thought I'd try eds and great work as always.

{Ed001's Note - Arsenal are always looking around, but there is nothing happening as such that I know of. Arsenal have a tendency to want to pay too little, so they get all these minor deals done, and right now they are being very tight on terms. I can't be sure why, I mean there is defo money there, but they clearly do not want to spend it for some reason. So deals they look at are quickly given up on. Such as defenders. Mustafi, they get told what was wanted but won't go anywhere near that amount, not even near enough for serious negotiations. I would not hold your breath for anything being done, Arsene does not like last minute panic buys.}

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 12:51:41
Thanks for the update ed - any chance of a potential list? We are all getting a little nervous

{Ed001's Note - lists is more Ed002's thing, as he has a database he can just access. I don't keep the details I get sent, because a lot of it has personal stuff in it. I keep saying I will start a database I can access from anywhere, but haven't got round to it. My memory is not really good enough to do a full list but that is not such a problem for Arsenal as right now, as far as I know, there is not a lot happening. While Arsene wants a centre back and centre forward, all his attempts seem to have fallen flat for now.}

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 14:20:35
Ed, if this is Arsene's last season in charge who is the club considering to take over? I know you said Koeman was a front runner, along with Remi Garde, but both of those now seem highly unlikely.

{Ed001's Note - far too soon now mate. They will have to look at who is available at the time. They do keep tabs on ones like Koeman. Henry and Vieira are always possibilities too, depending on what they are doing.}

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 14:56:00
Good work ed, any interest in the porto lad brahimi? Rumours going around that we want him.

{Ed001's Note - I know Stoke wanted him, Everton are keen and West Ham like him. I don't know about Arsenal though sorry.}

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 15:14:22
Thanks for the reply ed.

{Ed001's Note - you are very welcome mate. What Arsenal need is some movement in the market to open up opportunities to pick up players.}

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 17:05:50
Yer but we never seem to do it I ain't saying go spend 100mil on a player but get what we need in even if 75mil on 2 but holding looks good but he ain't the answer at the moment.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 15:59:57
Appreciate the response, Ed. Do you think Tuchel or Schubert would be realistic targets for us? Personally I think they'd both do a wonderful job and both like to play the kind of football that us Arsenal fans love to see.

{Ed001's Note - yes, if the club can sell its plans for the future to them. The budget of Premier League teams makes them extremely attractive.}

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 18:45:44
Hi Ed! Is it possible the club are saving money so a new manager can rebuild without pennypinching? Thank you for your great work!

{Ed001's Note - no, I just think they are being run to make a profit.}

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 20:14:50
Ed, a belated thank you. Just read your reply and appreciate it. Sounds like we need some movement which seems a similar message to what AW has been stating

Fingers crossed and hopefully we dust down our wallets and spend some money.

{Ed001's Note - I dread editing this site if no one is signed!}

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 20:40:26
I can imagine especially as we signed a striker who can't play for us, a youthful CB and a CDM who many say is a luxury. If we don't sign someone, you may need to close the site or ban Malaga and Steve et al
Sounds like you have your fingers crossed also.
If you hear anything - can you post it please?
Thanks again.

{Ed001's Note - believe me I will if I do.}

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 10:30:44
Is there any interest in Chicarito or rugani.

Believable0 Unbelievable5

22 Aug 2016 10:04:26
Any truth in the rumours that the winger we have been linked with today - draxler and the Porto winger?

Believable0 Unbelievable6

22 Aug 2016 03:53:11
Hi Eds,

Is James Rodriguez really available and have Arsenal shown any interest in him (now or previously) ?

{Ed001's Note - he is available but no. I know Arsene likes to collect attacking midfielders, but he has been found out at Madrid as not being anywhere near as good as the hype. With the price Madrid are looking for, he is not of interest to Arsenal.}

Believable0 Unbelievable2

22 Aug 2016 09:39:41
Ed, I don't really watch La Liga but, like everyone else, I was impressed with most of his goals at the World Cup - long shots and great solo runs!

I know he's not rated as much these days and when you say he's been found out, what are his flaws since he obviously has talent. Is he inconsistent and can have too many games where he doesn't turn up? Or was it simply that he was at top form at the WC and he doesn't usually play anywhere near that well?

My bad, as I finish typing this, I realise this isn't really Arsenal related so may not get a reply.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 11:32:18
Thanks Ed.

{Ed001's Note - sorry TPG my bad for not answering. He plays well in international footie where there is ample space and the game is slow. In club football he is too slow to keep pace with the game, not just foot speed, but mentally, and games tend to pass him by. He does still score the odd screamer though.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 13:46:20
Cheers ed :) yeah that makes sense, loads slower pace at the WC compared to even la liga - surely he'd be even worse in the premier league since it's extremely fast paced and can get quite ugly with less time for beautiful football.
