We are/ were looking but it is too late now for a quality defensive player. I think.

Apparently we offered 12 mil for evans. Derisory. Do we want him or not. Rediculous if true. Why bother this late with that.

We offered 4 times what he will probably be worth in 4 months. Tbh I don't think Evans is worth much more than 12 million. Wouldn't be much point in spending huge money in him. Would be better off spending the money in the summer on a defender who is actually worth bug money.

CS that isn't the point, we are in dire need of defensive options now. Its not about 4 months it about are we any better in defence now than before the window. And why insult them on the day we were told, don't bother bidding for him then, by pardew. Before today not on it, we obviously have a plan. Or do we.

we are not going to get top 4 with evans, he is not good enough and after having done what we had done this window get players we can be excited about and sell players who don't have a future or were not arsenal mould, would defeat the purpose of doing so getting evans.

12 million is a fair price.

For me if we think he's worth 12 that's what we offer. Why pay a ridiculous amount and thentm probably replace him in the summer. Would've been nice but we haven't got the money to throw around.

Lakeville, i'm not sure jonny evans was my cup of tea but have you seen our defenders.

I think it was a fair offer. And although he could well be cheaper in the summer I hope that our interest has moved on.

For me it isn't about who we bring in. We have good defenders. The issue is we play too softly. We need to defend as a unit and be more aggressive. Sometimes I feel we give too much room for the opposition to do their damage. Give them less time on the ball ⚽ and let's be more aggressive then we will be fine.

steve i have been watching the same games unfortunately, and yes we have actually allowed the same or more goals that west brom have,

the gk needs to be changed, he's done, he's over, he's not going to save us 15 points. Kepa would have been idea but we know that's not happening.

not sure if keylor navas is the way forward, Alisson is brilliant but again we won't go for him, Timo horn perhaps if sven actually does think he is that good.

the defense i think rb and lb are decent not world beaters but they can do a job, i think we need to play saed more, he can be a beast. we need to buy one bloody mental defender who will take no crap. we don't have that. and we need a defensive midfielder. looks like jorginho is off to man utd and the lazio guy will most likely go to psg. i have no idea who we are looking at now.

few key areas, even after addressing these issues we will be 3rd or 4th best in terms of depth, well onwards i guess.
