Hi ed (s) ,

Are the reports in some papers and over the internet to be believed that we may go after Zaha. I can't see how we could afford him to be honest, plus I think we should be concentrating on signing defenders who can actually defend. Your info or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - Zaha (RW) Emery says he likes the player but Crystal Palace will look for £60M plus which will take a serious chunk of the available funds away - but perfectly possible as the big buy of the summer}

Ed, from the defender target list you gave us, is there anyone we can cross off or add to the list?

{Ed002's Note - You can add Brandon Soppy (CB) Rennes kiddie - recommended by an ex player - perhaps 2020.}

Thanks Ed. You see how the newspapers lie Ed, is it really true that if arsenal win the Europa that our budget will be substantially higher than it is without winning it?

{Ed002's Note - It really doesn't work like that. Much will depend on what money can be obtained by selling players.}

Thanks Ed, I imagine it will be hard getting the likes of Elneny, Jenkinson and Mustafi out of the door due to the high wages we pay them.

{Ed002's Note - Transfer fees are running wild again, all three will move if the club don't ask too much.}

Ed, who are we looking at for CM? Last I heard, Pablo Fornals and Piotr Zielinski were being looked at. Isco may also be available but I would assume he's out of our price range? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - James Maddison (CM/AM) is emerging as a summer target for Arsenal (due largely to preferred choices not being available) but Leicester will resist selling him this summer unless a ridiculous offer is made and a move to Arsenal is very unlikely
Adrien Rabiot (CM/AM) - Emery wants him but wages will be very high and interest from elsewhere will likely win out. Obviously Rabiot is in a position now where he can negotiate a summer deal (let's assume that to be a signing on fee, a wage/bonus package, agent and third party fees) with any club outside of the remit of the FFF. This includes Arsenal and a number of other sides. Don't hold your breath - it probably won't happen.
Kai Havertz (CM/AM) option to Rabiot but won't happen as his future is largely mapped out with a move happening in 2020. I would forget him.
Joe Aribo (CM) remains of interest - but is he ready to step up? Charlton are to offer him the best deal possible.
Nicolo Barella (CM) Napoli and Chelsea failed with approaches in January - and he wants to be a starter and stay in Italy - so very difficult. Don't hold your breath as it won't happen.
Pablo Fornals (CM/AM) still being considered but in talks with another side
Ever Banega (CM) - Emery again likes the player but the club are not so keen, but if the preferred choices are not available he may need to be considered again}

Amazing insight ed. It's interesting to see no mention not James Rodriguez. Do you think he will leave Bayern this year and and if at all are Arsenal interested?

{Ed002's Note - James will be returned to Real MAdrid this summer and then sold on. There is an effort to get him involved in a part exchange deal but that is proving difficult and the one interested side can't sensibly take him this summer. It is nothing to do with Arsenal.}

Ed do arsenal have interest in french centre back William Saliba? Saint Etienne.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach by Arsenal although there is interest from elsewhere.}

Good afternoon Eds,
Is Alexis Claude Maurice from Lorient a player who Arsenal are interested in?
Many thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - An interesting question that I don't know the answer to. I can say that Alexis Claude-Maurice (AM) is a youngster from Lorient who has progressed well this season and attracted the attention of Norwich, Sion, Leeds and Lens, and probably others.}

Thank you for that Ed002. Guendouzi has faired pretty well so will be interesting to see if this develops in to something.

{Ed002's Note - Right - I am not sure comparisons are appropriate.}

Ed the newspapers today are saying we are going to to activate a buyout clause for Manolas, any truth?

{Ed002's Note - How could Arsenal "activate a buyout clause" for a player in Italy? Someone has been teasing you.}

Yeah I don’t understand how it works Ed, no need to explain it too. Thank you.

Ed, if Arsenal bid above 31m for him and the club fail to finish top 4, what areRoma supposed to do?

{Ed002's Note - Anything Roma want to do. If Arsenal want to make a move for the player they should approach Roma with a decent offer and see what they have to say.}

Ed are they interested? He weren’t on your list before.

{Ed002's Note - All I have seen is all of this about Arsenal and some “clause” on these pages.}

I must admit it is something very confusing. The media and Several other things seem to say arsenal may activate his release clause. And you say that's impossible as he is a player in Italy.

I find you very creditable Ed and always love Reading your in depth explanations on things in football that the media never seem to mention and just print the complete opposite. Not asking for an explanation as sure I've seen you attempt to explain it several times. I'm just more venting my frustration that the media seem to love spinning stories which as you say cannot happen.

Greetings eds. Marc overmars has come out and said Hakim Ziyech is going to leave the club. He would be a perfect fit in this squad. Young, dynamic, naturally wide and a good dribbler plus also initiates the press. Do you know where he could land and which clubs (if Arsenal) are interested in him? Thankyou

{Ed002's Note - Hakim Ziyech (RW/AM) concerns over one particular issue (which has already made a couple of clubs step back) will end the interest of Arsenal; Everton (a Ronald Koeman target in the summer of 2016 that Everton could look again to - but could be expensive); Inter (not first choice); Lyon (but interest is dependent on another matter); Manchester City (one of the clubs to step away because of an issue); Real Madrid (also stepped away because of the issue); Roma; Spurs (if CE leaves); Bayern Munich (who are being pushed to take him after peviously turning interest elsewhere).}

I don't know if it has anything to do with it but I did see lots of articles making a big deal of Ziyech and Mazraoui fasting for Ramadan during the semi final. But there are plenty of practicing Muslim footballers:mane, ozil, salah, pogba to name a few, who I would imagine observe ramadan and I don't remember seeing a big deal made over them. It was probably just a storm a lot of news out let's picked up and ran with.

Hi Eds, any truth to the Maxi Gomez rumours? Possible replacement for Welbz?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Arsenal interest and he would be an Lacazette or Aubamalangadingdong replacement if there were interest.}

You think one of them are going to leave this season? It would be just the worst decision our club has ever made.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

"Augba"? Have a word with yourself Stephen. Pierre-Paul Pogbameyang would be ashamed.

Just bought Jovic, likely to get Hazard. Doesn’t seem likely unless they manage to shift both Benzema and Bale.
