Sky sports reporting we have received a bid for wilshere of £6m + £1.5m in add ons.

Surely this is an absolute joke.
I know some people on here don't like him or believe he should be moved on, but surely he's valued way above this?

Ed is Wilshere for sale and what kind of valuation if any would you believe Arsenal are looking for?


{Ed001's Note - yes he is available and I have no idea how much the club want but anything they get is too much for him. Even when he is fit, he is simply not good enough. He barely moved last season and still ended up injured because he is made of crepe paper. I would question the sanity of any team that thinks he is worth buying, personally. It is very telling that Eddie Howe has not made any kind of attempt to clinch a permanent deal for him.}

Agree with Ed001 there. He looked so promising at first but is made of glass and gone downhill.

It too often goes like this. He has a terrible touch then due to that has to fly into a 50/ 50 or someone crunches into him as he has shown too much of the ball due to that rubbish touch then because he is fragile he is out for months. Then repeat. It is beyond me why people rate him here. Is it because he has been with us so long or because he's English? Baffles me because in short he is crap.

I would bite their hand off.

That's £6m plus £5m per year in saved wages. No brainer.

Oh yeah, it also free's up a bed in physio room.

3.) 18 Jul 2017 10:28:15
The bid is correct although jack doesn't want the move.

4.) 18 Jul 2017 12:07:37
Feel for the kid. Injuries have completely derailed him. Even last season he had to adjust his game to try avoid injuries. Such huge promise it is a sad story for him unfortunately.

5.) 18 Jul 2017 12:08:17
Jack can't move lol.

6.) 18 Jul 2017 14:31:16
I'd drive him myself for that price he is over rated.

7.) 18 Jul 2017 18:00:04
Im sure Jack doesn't want the move.
Who would? 6 million plus a year for doing f all and all the fags he can smoke.

8.) 20 Jul 2017 08:41:49
I'd take the £6m and wish him luck, we held on to Diaby too long and cost us a fortune in wages, He's too fragile and it won't change, get him off the wage bill now.

I know the sun is not a credible source so just seeing if the eds have any info on this.

They are claiming we've came to an agreement with lemar but haven't agreed a price with Monaco yet.

Is this true? Secondly how much do you believe we will sign him for, or will we turn to mahrez instead? Any info would be appreciated.


{Ed025's Note - firstly never read that rag mate its an insult to all true football supporters, as far as we know no agreement has been reached yet, and discussing money is futile as its all guesswork EC..

1.) 08 Jul 2017 10:54:54
I hope we sign Lemar over Mahrez! We may have come to a tentative agreement with his agent about what he'll want and what we'd pay but that's irrelevant if we don't meet Monaco's demands.

And second what Ed025 said, the Sun is a horrible excuse for journalism.

2.) 08 Jul 2017 14:11:20
I agree with the comment about the sun, didn't buy the paper just seen it on the sky sports rumour page credited to the sun.

Thanks for the reply ed.

Also do you have any info on when this whole Sanchez debacle will be sorted?

He said he'd say after the confed cup, still no word.
Surely we don't want this rumbling on all summer?

{Ed025's Note - its a tough one EC, arsenal want to keep him but he wants to go so this could rumble on for quite a bit mate..

3.) 08 Jul 2017 14:48:32
Woah, that is the first iv heard that he wants to actually leave.

Most say he just wants more money, but you have Info that he definitely wants to go?

If that's the case need to make sure it's abroad!

I agree with kcider, wish we would say ox that's your best position, forget playing central. We will sell bellerin inevitably back to Barcelona anyway so we should be trying to convince him he'd be best suited to staying here.

Personally also don't understand if he thinks central is his best position who he will replace in the city/ Chelsea/ Liverpool cm spots.

City and Liverpool are overloaded with central midfielders especially attacking minded, Chelsea would have more room but if he can't force his way past Xhaka and Ramsey how does he expect to do that against kante and Fabregas? As well as them recently signing bakayoko?

Wire I believe the CB position is our biggest necessity

We have holding mustafi and koscielney as our main 3

Chambers looks surplus, mertesacker will play few and far between, Gabriel is a back up but if koscielney gets injured we will be desperately in need of a top defender.

I know monreal can play there and kolasniac may be able to but don't think we should risk it after watching our defence implode once koscielney left the field against Bayern in both legs!

Would love us to swoop in and offer Southampton £40mil + Chambers back for Van Dijk.

I thought Ospina wanted to leave?

I wish we would go out and buy Butland.

Let him compete with Cech for our number 1 spot,
He will have Cech AND Lehmann coaching him into ours and England's number one for the foreseeable future.

Would be a great buy in my opinion.

Don't understand the Walcott hate on this page.

Theo undoubtedly was our second best player last year, only behind alexis.

He started the season on fire and yeh his performances stuttered after Christmas but that's because suddenly he wasn't starting half the time.

Imagine being dropped on what is your best season at a club and people wonder why his performances dropped.

Bear in mind he scored 19 goals in 29 starts and came on as a sub 10 times. That's an incredible return off a winger who's constantly slated by his own 'fans'.

Some people seem to be judging his performances off this expectations of him being the next Henry from when he signed for us at 16.

While I don't expect us to sign matuidi, I would very much welcome it. Would be a great signing even with his age.

& EppingGunner. 30 doesn't always mean decline.

Pirlo's best years were well beyond 30
And I'm pretty sure Zlatan has nearly scored as many goals since turning 30 than he did in all the years that preceded it.

Matuidi has hardly dropped in level, just psg want to blood their younger more exciting midfielders.


{Ed001's Note - he would be an excellent signing imo. Quality player.}

Okay but can you name said player?

Would he come in a instantly be a hit in the premier league? Is he available?

Personally don't think there are many 'beast' type centre backs out there anymore, as for will they improve us or be a hit in the prem it's really hard to tell. Look at Falcao and Di Maria. Two top players both couldn't make it in the premier league, just our style and systems don't always suit certain players (personally think di Maria would have been a success if he had not been playing in such a negative and defensive system)

I would welcome us buying a centre back, think Van Dijk would be incredible, but is he out of reach? By the looks it he wants Liverpool. Think we missed a trick last season with Ashley Williams, 12mil was a bargain.

As for the defensive mid, it has been a position we needed but do we need it with the 3-5-2 formation? I don't think so, I think Ramsey and Xhaka will do well, it also gives Ramsey the freedom he needs.

we could do with a midfeilder to replace cazorla though or compete with ramsey and Xhaka for those places, would like to see seri but like before we can't say he will be a success

But I do think we will sign one more, so let's wait and see and hope for a decent season.

You lot are the most pessimistic and negative fans I've ever heard. Seriously the season has just started we have the maximum points we can have and you lot are acting like it's all doom and gloom. We've just signed a £50million striker and got an absolute tank for nothing, both look like decent signings, we have a very good squad and we don't know what's going on transfer wise behind closed doors.

You guys need to stop moaning and get behind the team, be optimistic and hopeful of what's ahead.

Agree with the centre backs but that's as far as I go.

Our formation 3-5-2 doesn't need another defensive midfielder, we need a player similar to Ramsey, willing to make the run beyond the edge of the box.

Ramsey and Xhaka will work well this year but our back ups aren't good enough, so to me I think the two are Seri or Goretzka if we get a Cm

As for wide players. Moura is a poor mans walcott, and I believe mahrez is good but not enough to take us up a level, personally think lemar or carrasco would be good choices (carrasco very unlikely as Athletico won't sell anyone until their ban is up)

Also i think a must is buying Butland. He'd come in a challenge Cech instantly and can feed off Cech and Lehmann to improve.

4 signings is a lot to ask this late in the window.
But we can all hope.

Haha yes sanogo 😂

Too many 'fans' on here are just waiting for arsenals first blip to jump on the anti Wenger train again. Like him or not being that negative doesn't help the team in any way.

Agree d16 previously leaving it this late has meant bringing in some very dodgy buys in recent seasons Andre santos, squillaci, Kim kallstrom, park chu Young, Lucas Perez (some think he's not been given enough chance, but let's be honest he isn't going to be a title winning striker is he? ) even the likes of arteta and mertesacker, although were good servants to the club were not what we wanted or needed at the time.

Personally hope we get van dijk and lemar, would be very happy with business even if we sell Sanchez then. Ozil and ox to sign new deals and I'l be very happy.!
