Ed002 any idea if xhaka is joining inter Milan? The reports are gaining substance that's why.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of agreement with Inter but it is fair to say that there DM target wants to move to England and not Italy. Maybe Arsenal could ask for old DM target Marcelo Brozovic in return?}

The loudest noise at present appears to be: Praet, Andersen and Meunier to Arsenal. Whether there is any truth in these rumours is yet to be seen.
What are fellow Gooners thoughts on these three players?
I saw a post that Xhaka may go to Inter for £55 million, which seems incredibly high, but if true that changes our summer budget considerably:
Xhaka £55m
Rumoured budget £40m
Ospina £2m
Jenkinson £2m
Chambers £15m
Elneny £8m
Mustafi £25m
Monreal £5m
Mkhitaryan £20m - assuming a club will pay his high wages.
Ozil £25m - assuming a club will match his absurd wages.
Koscileny is another that may be moved on.
That makes a huge total of £197m

I cannot envisage us purchasing more than 4 or 5 players, even with a possible budget of £197m, Hence Freddie's reported elevation to first team coach, presumably to bring through youngsters to make up the numbers in the first team squad.
The 4 or 5 players, will probably be: a couple of defenders, a couple of midfield players and a wide attacking player that could cover up front as well.
I have a feeling Emery knows his current squad's failings and will make big changes this summer.

Don't think we will sign Meunier, looks like the draw of a champions league team would be his preferred option.

Personally I know it won't happen but I would love KT from celtic at left back!

I've watched Meunier and like him but find it unlikely. Personally I've never come across Praet or Andersen but think our priority is shifting out players more than bringing any in - or it would be if I was in charge anyway. Free up the wage bill and make a big signing, a Lacazette-level signing, and supplement with youth.

Hi ed any truth in the talk of chalov? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of anything related to Arsenal but Fedor Chalov (F) remains of some interest to Monaco but Sevilla opted for Dabbur.}

Ok thank you.

Ed's, completely random one.

Any chance we might get Buffon?


{Ed001's Note - I thought he was retiring.}

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jun 2019 19:45:44
I wasn’t sure. A report I read today said that he couldn’t come to an agreement with PSG over an extension to his contract so he’s left the club. Didn’t mention retirement.

{Ed002's Note - Buffon is not moving to Arsenal.}

05 Jun 2019 20:06:10
I thought we were trying to get rid of buffoons.

05 Jun 2019 14:46:42
Pea miki mustafi and xhaka have all taken that they play for arsenal off there bio on there social media accounts make of it what you will I know it Doesn’t mean anything but it’s unusual.

Perhaps they are just embarrassed by the Europa league final and pretending to be hairdressers postman roadworkers or EVEN bankers just not Arsenal players :-)

05 Jun 2019 12:59:58
How much truth is there about aubemyang going to China? I know its nothing but his social media seems to be swerve away from arsenal.

Who is this Martinelli and are we about to sign him?

{Ed047's Note - He’s a 17yr old Brazilian who ed02 has indicated could happen but that he’s not for the first team WG.

Thanks ed.

04 Jun 2019 21:37:38
Hello ed, rumours are that Granit Xhaka is close to joining inter Milan? Do you have information on this?

{Ed047's Note - No idea fella, seems to be a rumour coming out of the Swiss training camp with little behind it.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jun 2019 03:49:31
How often is stuff like this a result of agents drumming up interest? Most of the time?

04 Jun 2019 21:36:13
Hey ed, anyone interested in xhaka? Thanks in advance.

{Ed047's Note - I note you’ve already found the answer Lemtin.

Saw a report that his brother’s dog’s uncle’s barber said he has an agreement with Arsenal that he could leave if we didn’t achieve CL football for next season. Likely a load of old tosh but I find the story amusing as he, along with Mustafi, arrived in 2016 and they successfully guided us out of CL football in their first season and kept us out since.

06 Jun 2019 20:36:39
Totally agree SG our dropping out the champions league after 22 years coinsided with Xhaka Mustafi arriving, surely if we want back in next season it's not that difficult to see what we need to do and it won't cost us a penny.

If Nick Hornby is correct then it's another big mistake from Emery.

This summer, however, is critical. My sources inside the club tell me that the decision to release Aaron Ramsey was down to Emery and Emery alone, and that the player was ready to sign a new deal. Emery took one look at him and decided, clearly, that he wasn't worth the money being offered.

Even this seemed exciting at the time, reminiscent of Wenger deciding that Paul Merson wasn't good enough for Arsenal and shipping him out. "Paul Merson! We love Paul Merson! And he's not good enough? Bring it on! " And Wenger did. Unfortunately, Emery took a second look at Ramsey and apparently decided that he was, after all, an important part of his plans and indeed, the business-end of the collapse began with Ramsey's season-ending injury in Naples. Unless Ramsey's replacement is at least as good, fans will quickly resent the loss of someone who could be frustrating, but whose two Cup Final-winning goals, and a decade-long commitment to the club, have earned him Official Club Legend status.

Why did he jump to such a quick decision on Rambo. 😡😡.

A player who is only ever available for Half a season SY? If you look at Aaron's league appearances each season over his Arsenal career it isn't good reading and certainly not someone you want to be paying way over the odds upsetting others fland putting pressure on the wage bill when he's only available for half the required period each and every season, for me this is a rare tick not a cross in Emery boxes.

04 Jun 2019 21:28:03
Your ‘sources’ tell you? Or every major news publication that has written anything about Ramsey’s contract withdrawal because Emery didn’t want to keep him? Do me a favour. Sources.

05 Jun 2019 03:54:40
SY you have to understand our scelticism, regardless of the content as soon as you start with "my sources inside the club" it just invites laughter. Give your opinion and leave it at that, don't dress it up as being some sort of prophecy.

05 Jun 2019 08:18:11
Is SY not quoting Nick Hornsby when he says my sources?
I'm not sure myself but I guessed he must be because I've never heard SY make claims that seem exaggerated before and he's been posting for a few years now.
I know he's a Tory and drinks wine rather than beer but on the whole he's usually a pretty decent and honest bloke so I think something must have got confused in he's post somewhere, either that or he's had to much vino trying to console himself about Teresa May stepping down:-)

{Ed001's Note - I thought he was as well g62. It definitely seemed like he was just posting up what Hornsby had said, rather than suggesting he had sources himself.

Not being funny but it is exactly what Ed002 and myself had been telling you as well, that Emery didn't want him from the moment he stepped foot in the door.}

05 Jun 2019 10:03:01
Hi Ed001 mate I'm glad you read it like that too, sometimes you've got to look at the poster and their usual nature to see past any misunderstandings and SY isn't given to making wild claims about himself but he does like to use quotes from others quite often.
Mate as soon as you said Emery wanted Ramsey out that was good enough for me, I've never known yourself to quote something as fact when it wasn't true, you are always quite clear in the difference between when you are giving your own personal opinion or when passing on actual knowledge and never shy to say " I don't know " when that's the case too.
I have my opinions like everyone else but when it comes to inside information I know zilch so when you share what you know with us then that is 100% good enough for me evetytime without fail mate.
After 7 years of using this site the credibility level is still 100% when it comes to reporting facts over fabrication and in my opinion there is no other football outlet, be it TV papers radio or social media that can get anywhere close to this site for reliability and credibility. A huge well done to yourself and all the Eds mate, that's some reputation you've built up and all you have to do now is maintain it, no pressure:-)

I think the words both Ed’s used 10 months ago was emery didn’t like his comportment.
