Any truth in the Chambers to Fulham on loan rumours? Feel like we must have another CB lined up if this is the case. Also late move for Ricardo Rodriguez due to Kos injury?

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Aug 2018 08:56:30
I agree, if it's true we must have a replacement lined up.
In the unlikely event this story is true and we don't have a replacement coming in then it sounds like Gabriel last season all over again.
Arsene has really gone hasn't he?
Xhaka new contract
Perez out for 4 million
Joel Campbell completely frozen out
I'm getting very suspicious that Dick and Arsene have in fact had their bodies switched and the real Dick is on holiday enjoying himself while Arsene is just carrying on like always under the guise of Dick.

It seems pretty obvious to me this is exactly what's happend :-)

06 Aug 2018 10:07:48
Looks that way seems like Emery does not rate Chambers that highly really then if he prepared to loan him out.

06 Aug 2018 13:13:05
Still have a lot of CBs though - first choice is Sokratis/ Koscielny, then Mustafi, then Holding and Mavropanos. 5 CBs is plenty.

06 Aug 2018 15:00:13
Kos isn't available unil second half of the season and wasn't good at all last season wire mate.

06 Aug 2018 15:14:12
Your possibly right Ryan but why give him a new deal then? The whole thing seems strange to me at the moment but hopefully before the weekend it will make more sense.

06 Aug 2018 15:59:50
Gunner62 Some moves being made behind the scenes perhaps that the press have not picked up maybe a experienced CB on loan, as we have not really got the funds for anotehr major purchase without sales so loan deals could still be a option.

06 Aug 2018 23:24:19
I can't be the only one who can't see kos returning until the end of the season right?

07 Aug 2018 00:11:48
But he signed a new deal recently didn't he? I'm sure he still has the trust of the manager. Rumours are rumours until they actually happen.

05 Aug 2018 12:03:06
Hello Ed002 can u shed some light on Aaron Ramsey, do u know if he's leaving or staying? Thank u again.

{Ed002's Note - His agent has been discussing an extension with the club and that, I would think, would be first choice if it can be agreed. Someone close to the situation thinks he might suit playing in mainland Europe.}

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Aug 2018 18:24:34
Would it just happen to be the Catalan area in Europe ed? 😏.

{Ed002's Note - What?}

05 Aug 2018 18:30:33
Thanks Ed, so u reckon he will stay get then?

{Ed002's Note - I think they may well reach an agreement.}

05 Aug 2018 20:04:28
Thanks Ed. On a side note do u to still reckon Aubameyang is a bad boy?

{Ed002's Note - He is what I said he was.}

05 Aug 2018 21:06:44
DG, he is now our bad boy.

05 Aug 2018 22:12:35
Lol that sounds a bit weird Steve mate.

06 Aug 2018 11:26:59
if we're going to go with a 4-2-3-1, where does he fit in? torreira got to be a part of the 2, so you need a guy sitting next to him; xhaka, el neny, even niles can sit in there and do a better job than ramsey. I can't see a place for him. He slows the play up to often and faff's around too much. Everyone knows the no. 10 spot is ozil's, so where does he fit in? those who want to keep him, how you fitting him in? i can't see it. under a week now, COYG.

05 Aug 2018 10:27:51
Perez looks like he is going sporting Lisbon for 4.5 Mill well cheap but at least gets wages down.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Aug 2018 11:52:44
Another player, that was an absolute waste of millions and millions of pounds.

05 Aug 2018 13:06:21
Feel sorry for the lad, he was a pawn in a PR game but he desperately wanted a chance to prove himself for us.
I personally don't think he was good enough for premier league top 4 hopeful club but that wasn't his fault, we signed him and he had the right to expect a reasonable chance.
The lad was treated badly in my opinion.

05 Aug 2018 19:10:59
And now he could be joining west ham what the hell.

03 Aug 2018 22:56:05
With Kolasinac out untill mid October, does anyone think we will be looking for cover? i'd personally like a move for Danny Rose, quality player who i think could upset a few yids another Sol Campbell saga lol.

Agree0 Disagree2

05 Aug 2018 02:27:37
Zero chance of Rose. Maitland-Niles will play against City and Monreal should recover from a minor knee injury soon.

03 Aug 2018 15:54:34
Hi ED, are Arsenal actively looking for a winger before the window closes? . Think TT hey might neex one personally.

Agree1 Disagree0

03 Aug 2018 17:11:38
Ed002 said we will have to look for someone not on the original list of targets but he expects at least one more signing. Ed002 any chance of a podcast before deadline day to keep us excited?

{Ed002's Note - Probably Friday.}

04 Aug 2018 12:12:44
Thanks Ed, do u still reckon arsenal will sign some players, especially now wth the Kolasinac injury?

{Ed002's Note - You don't need to keep asking the same question.}

04 Aug 2018 13:49:18
Sorry mate I should of rephrased it, I meant do u reckon we will sign a left back, but I’ll look in the search bar.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

03 Aug 2018 14:43:57
I see iwobi signed a new long term deal.

Agree1 Disagree0

03 Aug 2018 15:28:50
Woop woop.

03 Aug 2018 15:55:36
Jay jays nephew! Yey lol.

03 Aug 2018 21:17:56
So that's Xhaka and Iwobi both given long term deals, ummm I can see where this is going
We should be releasing Pea on a free anytime soon for over achievement:-)

05 Aug 2018 02:29:25
Emery clearly has seen enough in Iwobi and Xhaka to extend their deals and I was impressed by Iwobi against Lazio.

05 Aug 2018 11:20:00
Rg, maybe, they were both discussed and things put in place before world cup and pre Dick. He may not have had any say.

05 Aug 2018 20:19:17
It makes no odds as to who's decision it was to extend their deals if they don't produce Dick will be blamed for keeping them beyond this season if they don't improve.
Dick has a one season free pass then as of next summer it's his gig entirely, luckily he doesn't strike me as the type to make excuses for himself or accept them from others either.

02 Aug 2018 13:39:31
Hello Ed's, any truth that Lucas Perez is on his way to Italy? And also any truth that Galatasaray are interested In Mustafi? Thank you.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know about Lucas Perez, though he is available. Mustafi was the subject of an enquiry from Galatasaray, price was not to their liking but they might be willing to negotiate down. Personally I think they will wait until after the window closes in the hopes Arsenal need to offload and get him off the wage bill.}

Agree1 Disagree0

02 Aug 2018 13:55:40
Thank u ed, do u see arsenal signing another centre back to replace him? And lastly do u see arsenal signing anyone? Thanks again ed.

{Ed001's Note - the issue is Koscielny to be honest, his injury problems could scupper any deal happening and require a centre back regardless. Certainly that is in the club's thinking and why there is a distinct possibility a defender arrives. Other than that I don't know, I don't have anyone inside Mislintat etcs thinking, just know what a few scouts have been told to look for, which is a centre back leader at the back as a long term replacement for Koscielny.}

02 Aug 2018 14:40:34
Thanks Ed, hopefully we sign a winger and a centre back.

31 Jul 2018 09:41:50
Hey eds what's the latest on Guedes? Does he not want to move to Arsenal completely?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know sorry.}

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jul 2018 09:26:39
Only tabloid gossip so nothing to serious but should it by any chance be true Aaron to Chelsea for 30 million?
I'd take it big time.

Agree0 Disagree2

31 Jul 2018 11:59:25
I wouldn't. He's an important goal contributor from midfield and competing with Xhaka for a place should bring out the best of both. For a player like Ramsey, who's been consistently one of the better midfielders in the league, and counts as homegrown, we should be demanding 50 minimum. It's bonkers, but so is everything else now.

31 Jul 2018 15:10:56
How can be one of the most consistent when he isn't consistently available wire mate
If he was that good why ain't we fighting the opposition off with a stick for his signature?

31 Jul 2018 19:15:05
Wire - with a year left on his contract we not going to get anywhere near 50Mill for Ramsey 30Mill tops and that might be pushing it tbh. Ramsey is a bit of a oddity in our side as he is actually one of the few offensively that are better without the ball than with the ball making some really good runs in the box he is kind of what Lampard used to be like in that sense. Yes he is a decent player but we have better in Ozil for his preferred position and he is replacable without doubt with equal or better with targets we could get. Maybe it is not down to money so much maybe he is not keen on the demands of Emery, and misses the protection of father figure Wenger and if that is the case good riddance we need all of them 100% on board and behind the coach. Out with the old cosy club and in with the new.

31 Jul 2018 22:41:04
G62 consistent in that he's averaged 6 goals and 6 assists a season in the league for the last 5 years. His return from deeper midfield is fairly steady. See what you mean on the contract situation though.

01 Aug 2018 12:28:08
Fair point Wire mate but with the lack of interest in Aaron from others so far 30 million might be ambitious.
Ox had both Liverpool and Chelsea chasing him last season but so far Aaron has no one very excited about signing him.
Just wondering what we see in Aaron Liverpool city Chelsea and Spurs don't see.

30 Jul 2018 09:13:17
Ed,

Are we having any joy selling players to free up salary cap issues as well as to generate transfer funds.

We've had some limited successes but mainly youth, players out of contract with the exception of Jack.

Thanks .

{Ed002's Note - Wilshere has gone from midfield. Reserve striker Takuma Asano has gone on loan. Per Mertesacker has been replaced. Santi Cazorla has gone from midfield. Jeff Reine-Adelaide has left. David Ospina will look to move. Carl Jenkinson and Joel Campbell will be on their way out. Nacho Monreal may well move move. Mustafi might look to his options. We will have to wait and see about Aaron Ramsey but if Arsenal want to bring in another midfield player after Torreira, then perhaps he might look to his options as well. Lucas Perez is not wanted by Emery, Lazio has an interest but not at €10M.}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2018 10:37:38
Thanks Ed. They need to get a move on to free up space, wages and funds so that the new player (S) are ready to go and integrated into the team / system.

Thanks for the great info.

{Ed002's Note - Remember there is no August 9 deadline for selling any to non-English/Welsh sides.}

30 Jul 2018 11:11:39
True - but doesn’t help balance the books to fund a new incoming player.

{Ed002's Note - I don't understand, sorry.}

30 Jul 2018 11:19:30
So that would make Aaron Jenks as the most pressing issues to resolve because they would seem the least likely to move away from England.

31 Jul 2018 02:23:09
Surprised Perez is not wanted as there was all this fanfare about him returning for this season to be given a chance by Emery. Perhaps what he saw in pre-season wasn't enough.

31 Jul 2018 06:17:44
We need to sort out deals for Ramsey and Welbeck or move them on before the window closes.
Other outs:
Ospina
Jenkinson
Campbell
Akpom
Perez

Loans
Willock
Nketiah.
