eds i don't want to talk about players arsenal are linked with, but who is interested in the players we currently have?

ox, lucas perez, giroud, sanogo, gibbs, wilshire, debuchy.


{Ed002's Note - (a) Possibly Liverpool but it makes no sense (b) Sevilla, Villarreal and possibly Real Sociedad (c) Marseille but it won't happen (d) Lower French or Italian sides I would think (e) ? (f) Bournemouth (g) ?}

1.) 05 Jun 2017 04:48:14
Wilshere's being touted to WHam I think. Might be best for all parties really.

2.) 05 Jun 2017 11:01:16
I hear Newcastle are interested in Gibbs, any truth in this Eds? The fee i heard was £15 million, this seems unrealistic however due to his injury record and only having a year left on his contract.

{Ed025's Note - it certainly looks a possibility at this stage jim..

3.) 05 Jun 2017 10:11:53
appreciate the response ed, would have assumed they would have to go on a free, as most clubs who would want these players probably would not want to pay the insane salaries we have put them on.

{Ed002's Note - You are right that clubs in Europe would not match the salaries.}

4.) 06 Jun 2017 14:32:38
Because you have a team of mercenaries who wouldn't play for Arsenal if you didn't bribe them. That is exactly the problem with the squad!

You will soon find out the horrible truth of Europa League football. Top players like Mbappe won't sign unless you pay £100M and budget breaking wages on top. If Arsenal follow this path then they will soon become the next Leeds or Nottingham Forest.



03 Aug 2016 15:04:47
can i ask if arsenal are entertaining offers for sanchez?

and if so what sort of price are they looking for, as we know juve want Sanchez.


1.) 03 Aug 2016 19:54:53
I'm not 'ITK' but I see no chance of Alexis leaving. He's excited for the new season and seems keen to stay, we have no reason to sell, and I doubt the club would let on of their only world class players leave with only a couple weeks before the new season.

Snowball's chance in hell mate.

2.) 03 Aug 2016 20:48:07
Sanchez is going nowhere. For this season at least.

3.) 03 Aug 2016 21:23:18
Malaga said he's leaving.

Thank God, that mean's he's definitely staying :-)



13 Aug 2015 05:00:04
Ok I have no idea on the latest with benzema and arsenal. Could be the same in regards to interest but no move yet.

I have been reading that Manchester United are now in for the player. And are willing to pay him 250 per week while we can only offer about 160.

Is there any truth to uniteds interest?


1.) 13 Aug 2015 09:31:26
It would seem a likely solution to the De Gea situation as Ramos isn't interested leaving.
I doubt utd are interested in Reals Euro's so Benzema could well be the ideal currency to resolve things.
It wouldn't exactly be a shock if it happened.

2.) 13 Aug 2015 12:08:15
As much as I would love to get Benz, I really don't think it will happen. Kinder reminds me of the whole Higuain scenario, we have been linked with both every summer for like 4-5 years now or so it feels.



16 Apr 2015 11:42:11
Can any ed shed some info in terms of the coaching carousel which we may encounter this summer?

with klopp now in the hat, which teams are looking to him as their new manager?

I know Liverpool will have interest, Arsenal have ruled out their interest.

do madrid and barcelona figure in this? or are they more likely to stay with their figure heads?


{Ed002's Note - If the European page was not having issues right now I would say take it there. So a really special treat:

Klopp: Liverpool don't have an interest in Klopp and he has a number of options available - take a year off being top of the list. He will be approached by Napoli, don't rule out PSG or Real Madrid.

Blanc: It is fair to say that an alternative to Blanc was being considered by PSG but he is no longer available. It is also fair to say that there was a third party looking to see if a deal could have been brokered with Liverpool for him. That however is a while back and long before Liverpool began to improve. Right now I would not want to speculate too much.

Ancelotti: There is a third party who wants to steer Ancelotti toward Manchester this summer - either side.

Manuel Pellegrini to Napoli (may be an issue now that Klopp is available.

Benitez: Benitez wants either the Liverpool job or Manchester City - there is a chance of a one year deal at Manchester City whilst they await the man they want.

I am not going to give details about what is happening elsewhere in Europe here, that will wait until the page is fixed. Again, a blast for managers this summer.}

1.) 16 Apr 2015 21:00:53
much appreciated for your response.



24 Feb 2015 14:08:35
Can one of the eds shed some light into this Pogba link to arsenal?

the fans know Arsenal will not pay absurd amounts of money for the player, even if we did, we would need to sell, quite a few players and spend our entire transfer budget on one player.

why are the media linking him to arsenal, when, man city, psg, madrid are all waiting to play some mad auction?


{Ed002's Note - If you see Paul Pogba at Arsenal it will be in the Away dressing room.}

1.) 25 Feb 2015 10:02:26
Classic Ed002 there :-) made me chuckle

2.) 27 Feb 2015 17:24:58
I agree. I see city getting him to replace yaya. Viera wil talk him into it. He knows manchester and I believe winning things with city would appeal to him. Also chelsea are in with a massive shout

3.) 28 Feb 2015 11:47:56
Brilliant ED002!

i have been watching La liga recently and with madrid having a terrible run of games and probably out of the title race, a slip in the champions league and zidane is likely to be ousted.

i do hope we have him as a successor, i'm not sure wenger will stay beyond this year, and i feel he should move to madrid or psg, we need a fresh start and he could do with not having to penny pinch every buy or sale.


1.) 22 Sep 2017 02:57:02
Zidane? No thanks. No disrespect he's a footballing genius and legend of course but that wouldn't be a step in the right direction for me.



25 Jul 2017 13:52:30
considering the price they sold mendy for i just don't think we have a chance with lemar under 70 mill.

i hope we can close out a transfer or two soon. defender and CM needed asap.


1.) 25 Jul 2017 14:08:46
That and the fact that everybody else is managing to do business with Monaco.



28 Jun 2017 09:25:32
i know its a pipe dream but with perez stating last night that mbappe is only 18 and cannot guarantee him a starting spot, does that mean we are in with a shout to sign the player?

also he rubbished claims of 120mill for the player so maybe the figure is not as high as some make it seem?



1.) 28 Jun 2017 09:39:03
not sure perez has much say in the matter hopefully he will be sold anyway back to deportivo.

2.) 28 Jun 2017 10:51:28
I think he means the Real president Derby not the Arsenal player :-)
Personally I think Mbappe will stay put for now but if he moves it will be the best move he can possibly get regarding pay and footballing ambition.
People talk about a stepping stone move but football has a very long history of young players not realising their full potential and a wrong move now to a stepping stone club could see his chance of ever joining the likes of Real disappear for ever.
James Rodriguez joined Real and it hasn't gone brilliantly for him but he is still in demand simply because big clubs aren't put off by a player who couldn't quite crack it at Real which is almost certainly the hardest of all clubs to make your mark at.
If James Rodriguez had joined Liverpool instead of Real and struggled to win a regular place his options would be as attractive as they are today.
Real don't come knocking to often and that's why few refuse them when they do come calling.

3.) 28 Jun 2017 12:14:39
Every time there is a world class player, real come knocking.

4.) 28 Jun 2017 12:29:41
They do indeed Perfect but seldom for the same player twice which is why few refuse them when their chances comes along.

5.) 30 Jun 2017 16:09:54
I know 62 :)



14 Jun 2017 11:44:18
with toliso and gnabry signing for bayern i think alexis sanchez won't be moving there. or that's what i assume. unless they do manage to sell douglas costa and renato sanchez i would assume.


1.) 14 Jun 2017 12:36:23
Even with Douglas Costa going (likely to Juve) , I think Sanchez will still be unlikely, as they have lots of attackers.


2.) 14 Jun 2017 14:04:38
I believe Sanchez wishes to stay with us but that depends on the players we sign. He wants to win trophies and if another club is likely to give him that chance, he might join them. So why don't we make it right as a club this time by bringing in few quality signings and secondly play as though it were our last chance to win the league. Our new system makes us play better and it reminds me of the old arsenal side that used to create chances for fun. Coming season, we have to be more clinical with every chance we create if we want to win the league because it's going to be tougher as Pep and Mourinho are in their second year as manager of their club. Other teams are getting better and better.

3.) 14 Jun 2017 14:28:02
Willy - I hope you are right, but we have seen this too many times.

Our best players having bigger ambitions than the club.

Nasri (for the best)
the list goes on and on.

4.) 14 Jun 2017 18:23:27
Not all of that list had 'bigger ambitions than the club'. Cashley Cole's departure was 100% down to his desire to be paid more rather than anything else I'm sure, Henry loved Arsenal and was an invincible when we were a tophy winning team - he has said his decision to leave was largely because of David Dein leaving (Wenger also offered to leave the club at the same time but Dein insisted he stay for the good of AFC) . Also, can't blame someone for moving to the two big Spanish clubs especially once they've already had a great career and probed themselves in a league for so long. Cesc was tempted by his boyhood club etc etc.

Basically, my point is that I don't think the clubs ambition has been an issue until the recent (cough Kroenke) years.



01 Jun 2017 10:55:06
with Athletico transfer Ban being upheld perhaps we can try and negotiate for Lacazette?

or maybe they will sign him in january. who knows.


1.) 01 Jun 2017 12:35:04
I'd think we've missed our chance to sign Lacazette.

Not entirely sure what impact missing out on Champs League will have on other players desire to join though. One of the Eds mentioned Arsene still being interested in Morata, so maybe he'll become our 1st choice striker.

I'd like to think with the amount of players likely to leave that transfer fees, wages and squad places won't be an issue when it comes to recruitment.

Anybody have any idea what the plan for Reine-Adelaide is next year?

60 mill for a defender? you think wenger will spend that? chelsea or liverpool. wenger is busy playing monopoly.

i get that we have a big team but its not our fault with all these exceptional players we have right?

its all a waiting game now.

will man utd buy before the end of the window or wait on bale
will man city wait on bale or buy before that.
i know we will certainly wait, for not other reason than us haggling over everything else.

i reckon he will go to man utd for another 100 odd million.

ive seen him a few times and to me he seems to be getting lazy. i'd even take an injured diaby over him, he always came back and performed like a superstar.

probably wants to stick around in italy, i remember chelsea were after him so probably not an option for any english team perhaps with him having an established family i'd assume.

barca want to eat the entire cake and come around asking for handouts. if they have no money they need to sell neymar and i'm sure a few teams will pay well over 250 mill for him.

lacazette is a good player, i'm not sure he will turn our fortunes around, and if at his peak no one else is looking at him as a top 5 option, then i really don't see the rush to sign him.

if aulas wants him he can keep him, there is no one else bidding for him and i'm quite sure athletico will turn their attention to another player, so for him to drum up interest to raise his price when we have given him sufficient terms, i think we should back away and let him out poker himself.

not happening mate. lacazette, and mahrez should happen if sanchez leaves. anything else will be a bonus, i don't see any 130 mill player coming, i think he is real bound.
