Hi all,

Been a while since I've posted, hope all are well!

Eds, any news if we've looked at Higuain?

He's in devastating form at the moment, and is the striker highest on my wish list - probably the most attainable too!

Would much rather have him over Morata!



{Ed001's Note - why would he be the most attainable? He has settled in Naples and is held in almost as high an esteem as Maradona was. I wouldn't hold my breath on getting him, though Napoli would have to consider silly offers.}

thats the most sense iv heard all year ed. he suits how napoli play don't think he would bang that many in for us. italian football suits him.

Just saw rumours about the clause in vardy's contract.
Could he be a target for us or doesn't his style match us?

I have seen that Mussachio has been linked with a move to Arsenal. Do you have any news on this Eds? He is a great CB so I am hoping that this is true.

{Ed001's Note - I have already mentioned this earlier, he has been scouted by Arsenal for a couple of years now. This summer there is a big possibility he moves on, but nothing has actually happened yet.}

Hello eds, reports in italy claim we have made a bid for morata. Is this true or are we in talks or is it neither? Thank u in advance.

{Ed001's Note - for now everything is waiting on Real Madrid, to see what they do with their buyback. The likelihood is that they will step in and buy him and then sell him on for a profit. Arsenal are being made aware of developments.}

Agree0 Disagree0

25 May 2016 11:28:45
Yeah word was that he was the one being looked at instead of Gabriel but he got a serious injury and we then took Gabriel.

Maybe we can send Gab back and get Musacchio in return!

{Ed001's Note - correct that they were watching him and that was how they saw Gabriel. I have no idea if it was that cut and dried over a move or not, he was certainly out injured at the time, so was unavailable to move.}

Agree0 Disagree0

25 May 2016 11:47:20
Musacchio is a fantastic player but he's not particularly tall and his recent injury record isn't fantastic, but he would definitely suit our high defensive line and has the ability to play it out from the back.

Agree0 Disagree0

Thanks for the reply ed. Do. arsenal know the price required to buy morata and have not been put off by the price?

{Ed001's Note - yes, not that I am aware of, hence why they are keeping tabs.}

Agree0 Disagree0

25 May 2016 16:15:20
Thannks for the reply ed. I would prefer lukaku to be honest but his price is too expensive.

{Ed001's Note - really? Lukaku's touch is appalling, his attitude is even worse. I would rather have Giroud than Lukaku.}

Agree1 Disagree0

25 May 2016 18:53:02
Only because lukaku scores loads of goals. I'm not sure morata will score too many. If he came would u see him as first choice ed?

{Ed001's Note - Morata or Lukaku? If Wenger was spending what it took to buy either, he would be doing it with the intention of playing them.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2016 16:18:51
Obviously been talked to death but few papers now say moratas agent is trying to push the buy back deal with Real Madrid so Arsenal can then get him for 46m.

Elo all.
Eds are arsenal interested in Sturridge and do you think Sturridge would b interested in joining. Thanks.

{Ed001's Note - not that I am aware of, and a return to London might well interest him. He does seem like the perfect Arsenal player, fast, technically superb but injury prone. It is a match made in heaven!}

23 May 2016 15:43:11
Injury prone. Ha.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2016 13:37:00
An excellent player, but injury prone and would Liverpool sell to us, or would we do a swop deal with Walcott or Ox going the other way?

Agree1 Disagree0

Seen a few places linking us to Benatia at Bayern. wondering if there was any truth in this?
Would be a decent good follow up to Xhaka if we can get him at the right price.

Believable3 Unbelievable0

23 May 2016 11:55:29
Well, bayern just bought hummels, so they will be offloading one of their defenders, either benatia or martinez for sure. I think Benatia will be a very good addition, with plenty of experience playing for a top team in europe. what's my fellow gunners thoughts of him?

Agree2 Disagree0

23 May 2016 14:56:46
Would be a great signing.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2016 16:00:31
Well I wouldn't say no to Benatia but I think we should be looking at someone younger that will take the reigns from kos once he decides to move on or hang up his boots.

Laporte (although citeh bound)

There are plenty out there that will improve us and at a much younger age, they can develop and become our rock. i don't see the point in signing a 29 year old when our defence is aging enough as it is.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2016 16:19:10
I think I remember us being linked with Rugani last summer. think those top three would be too expensive and unwilling to come but would be good to have a quality young defender.

Never know, Chambers might become a rock at the back next season.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 May 2016 15:17:38
Eds do you know if arsenal are interested in Benatia? And if so what do u make of him?

{Ed001's Note - there has been longstanding interest from Arsenal, but I don't expect any more to materialise in the summer. It is difficult to judge him, he looks good when I have seen him play, but playing for Bayern is easy for a defender and the internationals (unless I am mixing him up with someone it is Morocco he plays for right?) have been against a low standard of opponent. I have looked at him purely because he was of interest to Arsenal and he does look a good fit, from what I saw. Age and injury history might count against any more due to the price being too high for a 29 year old.}

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2016 18:06:26
Rugani had another encouraging season, he'll be a top top player

As for chambers, I'd love to see him grow into that centre half position, he looked far more comfortable there than at RB, he just needs to calm down abit, he's a headless chicken as it stands. Maybe a loan is best for him next year?

Beilik could do with some game time, he's impressed me this season, maybe next season is to early for him but I'd chuck him in there for the cup games n whatnot.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2016 11:04:05
Thanks for the response Ed. In your opinion who do you think will be the best fit for arsenal in the centre back position?

{Ed001's Note - players such as Musacchio would be the best fit for Arsenal. He is not perfect defensively, but he is quick for the high line and technically excellent on the ball. Maybe Mustafi from Valencia would be good too, especially as he has lived in England before so should be quick to adapt.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2016 11:39:48
Do you think any of the players you have mentioned are realistic targets for arsenal?

{Ed001's Note - yes, which is why I mentioned the pair of them. Both are available, both have been looked at.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2016 12:12:26
Ohhh okay thanks ed for your responses.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2016 18:14:10
Heard we are very interested in Mkhitaryan.

Would be chuffed, he's top top quality.

Believable4 Unbelievable1

23 May 2016 20:57:07
From what I'm hearing, he's likely to arrive at Chelsea this summer.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2016 13:53:03
Not sure on truth but saw some squad numbers are changing
Coq- 8.

Believable2 Unbelievable0

22 May 2016 19:23:04
Walcott 0
The 'Woeful' Flamini 0
The OX will wear 50:50
As the next big thing, The Jeff can wear whatever number he wants.

Agree0 Disagree0

Mourinho to utd then apparently! According to aunty beeb it will be officially announced on Tuesday.
That's tge two cup winning managers gone already and leaves Raneiri as this seasons only successful manager not to be sacked, yet! :-)

Would man united not have needed to declare their interest in replacing lvg back in feburary like they did with fergie leaving and now man city this year.

Well done ed02 you said months ago arsenal would look for an early agreement for xhaka.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

21 May 2016 21:17:02
Where did he say that. Thought he'd not said anything on Arsenal. If so hope he's doubters see this and realise how they've ruined things for a lot of us.

{Ed002's Note - He said it a very long time ago.}

Agree1 Disagree0

21 May 2016 22:38:04
Xhaka has been courting us as much as we have been him.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2016 23:13:35
He said it ages ago on the euro page.

22 May 2016 00:10:22
Didn't know that ed002! All the best to ya!

ed 002 is the sage of the site all the power of Merlin and then some.

I still think RG knows more than Ed002.
