More rumours from low grade newspapers that N'Zonzi is on his way to us in January. This is just the type of signing that would be good for us, as I have stated on many occassions. Do the Ed's have any info on whether this is true?
I have a feeling that it is good to have Law departing and the new guy coming in, as since Dein left we haven't been great in the signings and contracts department.

RG61

{Ed002's Note - I can confirm that the clubs have discused the player and that it can certainly go ahead in January. What I cannot agree is the price quoted by another poster. There has been a flurry of activity since last Friday and there have been several clubs also trying to discuss deals in Geneva on Sunday, in Nyon yesterday and today down in Monaco after a poorly attended meeting this morning. Right now, if Arsenal offer the player the chance to live in London and a decent financial package, then assumingSevilla are financially satisfied then I think it can be closed out quickly. There is a slight hesitation over money as Sevilla set a price that includes a payment they won't receive - the player will. If Arsenal look to negotiate Sevilla will want the player to sign an agreement recuing or removing the fee due to him. To the best of my knowledge that has not happened, and typically Arsenal are not a club to simply pay the full asking price.}

Going after nzonzi shows where our ambitions lie and that is finishing top four, not challenging for the title. It wouldn't be a progressive signing, just another stop gap. Now goretska would be. Nzonzi is a journey man pro and that's all. The only slight plus would be not seeing zhaka in an arsenal shirt but the only minus would be him and xhaka together. Dread the thought. I hope it doest materialise and we go for better and younger. We were linked when he was 7 mil and he was deemed not good enough then.


2.) 12 Dec 2017 17:38:57
For once I agree with Steve he is nowhere near good enough for arsenal, we need much better he was awful in the prem when he was here.

{Ed002's Note - Gretzka would need a lot of persuading that Arsenal is a better option than others he will have.}


3.) 12 Dec 2017 20:36:22
Ed are Arsenal talking with real over asensio thanks.

{Ed002's Note - No. The discussions were with another English side.}


4.) 13 Dec 2017 17:37:36
Thanks ed.


 

 

05 Dec 2017 13:51:05
N'Zonzi is either in or on his way for talks with Arsenal, He is just the type of DM we have been crying out for since the days of Vieira, Gilbert and Petit. My feeling if we sign him is that we may push Ramsey forward into the number 10 role he seems far better suited to and allow Ozil to move on. Thus may prove cost effective as we will pick up a fee for Ozil, which cold cover the cost of N'Zonzi, who has release clause in his contract.
I can also see us possibly trying to unload Walcott, Debuchy and Chambers.

RG61

{Ed002's Note - No. He is in London for some matter other than talks with Arsenal, Everton or Liverpool or any other club. And he is a regular visitor. If Arsenal are interested in the player they need to talk with Sevilla, not illegally with the player.}


1.) 05 Dec 2017 14:11:36
The transfer window opens on 1st January, only 26/ 27 days away, so surely Arsenal may have requested permission to speak to the player and his representatives, especially as he has reportedly fallen out with his club and has a break clause.
As we well know deals are often put in place some time before they are permitted to go through, due to the complexity of transfers these days.

{Ed002's Note - No. he is in London regularly. I don’t know why - maybe he has a girlfriend here. He is not seeing Arsenal or any other club - Everton and Liverpool fans think he is talking to them as well. I don’t know where people get this stuff from.}


2.) 05 Dec 2017 14:23:26
You may well be correct, as apparently he has a son here, but the pieces fall into place, as he there hasn't been 'noise' before when he must have visited his son and he has been omitted from the midweek squad after falling out and it all seems too coincidental. Hopefully he will sign for Arsenal.

{Ed002's Note - Seville has made no secret that they would be open to selling Steven N'Zonzi but both Leicester and Juventus were shocked at the asking price when they showed interest last summer. I guess interest from either club could remain - particularly Leicester. Newscastle and Arsenal have watched him this season but he is now very much out of favour. I am not aware of any approach by Everton alshough he is a player who was with Allardyce and Blackburn. Juventus could return to consider the player but he is not their first choice - although the player has previously made it clear he wants a move to Turin. If Arsenal wish to decalre an interest in the player they need to speak to his representative and Seville.}


3.) 05 Dec 2017 20:37:57
Not good enough for arsenal.


4.) 06 Dec 2017 08:44:28
He’s a dobbin, nowhere near good enough. 🙄.

Yet another over priced donkey linked.

Reports yet again emerging that we have offered £40m for Karia Benzema, probably the usual nonsense, at least I hope so!

I think this it could be right, if not next time or the time after that or the time after that, let's face it why wouldn't it be :-)


2.) 25 Nov 2017 07:48:54
We will sign him when he's 36 on his last leg, and we need a striker desperately.


 

 

25 Oct 2017 15:18:36
Some very talented youngsters coming through our academy. Macey in goal looks very promising.

1.) 25 Oct 2017 17:37:34
I only saw the highlights. Did he look promising or will he just be another league cup poster who’ll be forgotten.

Time will tell D16.


3.) 26 Oct 2017 22:27:58
The premier league as always is the bench mark that by all young players futures are decided.
Jay Simpson and Jay Emanuel Thomas were two I thought would make it Frimpong too but ultimately being able to hold your own in the bread and butter premier league is minimum requirement, cup games where the best players are rested on both sides isn't the best guide.


 

 

25 Oct 2017 00:20:32
Pleased that we managed to get through to the QF of the LC. Great to see youngsters given more game time and in particular Nketiah.

Although a fine player I am not certain Mkhitaryan is the type of player we need, as we currently have too many players that can't tackle and don't work back.
P-E A would be awesome, a decent replacement for Sanchez.

{Ed025's Note - hes another one with an attitude though RG, mind you it seems that most of them are like that these days mate..

The running of Arsenal under dictator Wenger since Dein left continues to baffle me. In the summer window we only signed 2 players and desperately needed at least 2 more signings, a DM and a CB, whilst the contracts of Ozil, Sanchez and Wilshere were not dealt with. In this window we still haven't dealt with the contracts of the 3 players, nor sold any of them yet. Yo offer Wilshere, our best player recently a lower basic wage is insulting. We have sold Coquelin, with Walcott almost gone and Sanchez well on his way. Rumours that Giroud may go as part of an attempt to sign P-E A. Whilst we have made one signing, a 20 year old for the future. We need at least 4 signings, the 2 mentioned at the start of this comment, plus a replacement for the departures. Realistically we need 6 or so signings, which won't happen. I guess that we will sign 2 and sell 4. In the summer Ramsey and Welbeck's deals have a tear to go and I believe Nelsons too, so we enter the same situation we has with 4 players last summer. It's a shameful situation orchestrated by Wenger. The nest two matches will be crucial, fail to win against Palace and Chelsea and the fans will again turn on Wenger, who must be replaced.

RG61

1.) 17 Jan 2018 07:21:58
I agree in some parts RG. But you can’t force players to sign contracts, but you can either move them on or resolve any issues that may lie. In Sanchez case show a bit of ambition, it must be mentally tiring to carry a club week in week out without any signs that the club are going to help and buy the quality needed.


2.) 17 Jan 2018 08:45:07
Since Dein left.? Were you baffled by the titles and the unbeaten season?


3.) 17 Jan 2018 10:43:03
Skywalks - Devin left in 2007. No titles and we were unbeaten In 2003-4.
Sans go - I agree, when player’s contracts get to 2 years, a decision has to be made, not in the final year, when we are in a weak position and the player and squad become unsettled.


4.) 17 Jan 2018 11:57:39
I also don’t understand why you don’t get signings (especially so called marque signings) to sign the maximum term they can 5 1/ 2 years I believe with options of extensions should the club decide to excercise.


 

 

16 Jan 2018 06:48:54
Would like to see us sign the following players in this window:
Evans
Nzonzi
Patrick-Emerick Aubameyang
Would strengthen the core of the team.
I would also like to see Wilshere sign a contract.
I would sell Ozil, as he is inconsistent and is not worth the huge salary reportedly on offer.
In the summer bring in a keeper, another CB, cover at RB and another DM.

RG61

1.) 16 Jan 2018 07:53:21
You stole my list! Add Malcom or another wide man and I am on board.


2.) 16 Jan 2018 08:18:52
why sell ozil, he wants to stay, but the situation has made him leave.


3.) 16 Jan 2018 08:36:56
We should really be looking to keep Ozil, if nothing else, players like him and enjoy playing with him so might act as a draw to bring good players in to play alongside him.


4.) 16 Jan 2018 09:15:09
TBH Ozil is as good as gone aswell he is just binding his time until the end of the season to get that huge sign on fee. We have to start a re-build now. Clear out the dross even if it means short term pain in using more youths like Nelson etc. for the time being until we can get the 1st team players in we need as it may take a few transfer windows to do this re-build. For now Malcolm, Patrick-Emerick Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan in the swap for Sanchez would be a good window for us if it happens as that is Sanchez, ozil and walcott if he goes covered for this month. We we urgently need better defensive midfielders and another CB and at some point a new 1st team keeper as chech not got long left at the top.


5.) 16 Jan 2018 10:47:55
The only signing that looks possibly is Evans R. G. as aubaneyang will want champions league football something your club cannot offer him for the foreseeable future.


6.) 16 Jan 2018 12:35:07
Oh dear raver61 embarrassing yourself yet again. The toot are also sitting outside the top 4, so no signings for them either?
Have the toot ever won the PL? No!
Last league win - 1961, yes approaching 60 years ago!
Last FA Cup win - 1991, approaching 30 years ago!
Last League Cup win - 2008, a decade ago!
The pain of being a toot just goes on.1961, yes 1961!


7.) 16 Jan 2018 13:13:17
Evans and nzonzi are not good enough.


8.) 16 Jan 2018 15:21:11
Wesley, if ozil wants to stay why are we trying to sign miki and why is talking to foreign clubs and not signing.


9.) 16 Jan 2018 15:29:42
R. G. The facts are we will be top 4 come may and we don't need signing's as we are not in crisis like Arsenal. Who's going to replace Hugo boss or the class Belgium centre backs or Ali and eriksen and who's going to replace the best finisher in world football lol. I did laugh at the Arsenal supporter at the end of the Bournemouth match nearly crying shouting rubbish on the tv, Arsenals' last league title 15 years, league cup 31 years and you have never seen your club win a European major mind the gap deluded one.


10.) 16 Jan 2018 15:33:53
Sorry is he.


 

 

16 Jan 2018 06:44:13
The changes behind the scenes at Arsenal are pleasing, but most of all Wenger needs to go. His training methods are constantly criticised, his tactics are suspect, his desire to play players out of their natural positions, his inability to get the most out of players on a consistent basis, etc. The puzzling thing about Wenger is that he has managed to win 3 FA Cups and 3 Community Shields and finish in the top four 3 times over the last 4 seasons.
The club still have the nucleous of a decent team, but urgently need to sign 6 or so players over this window and the summer window. There are also players that need to be moved on urgently: Ospina, Debuchy, Mertesacker (retiring) , Jenkinson, Chambers, Walcott, Campbell, Perez and Akpom. I would also look at replacing Cech and Monreal at a later date.

RG61

1.) 16 Jan 2018 09:22:39
Agree that is the most important thing that needs to happen at the end of season is Wenger leaving. My fear is that even if he does finish at the end of season he will simply move up into the board/ director level and still be pulling all the strings behind the scenes and still have too much influence over team affairs with a puppet new manager (E. G Arteta) in place. The baord have not got the ballS to say enough is enough with Wenger that is the problem. We need fresh new start totally with a whole new management/ coaching team.


2.) 16 Jan 2018 10:48:50
Community shields lol you might go one better this season R. G. and win the carabao cup.


3.) 16 Jan 2018 12:31:44
Oh dear raver61 embarrassing yourself yet again - I have heard it all now, being preached to about winning trophies by a toot fan that won't even tell us how few trophies the toot have won during his lifetime.
May I remind you that to even play in the Community Shield a team has to have won the Premier League or the FA Cup. The toot have never won the Premier League and their last FA Cup win was nearly 30 years ago!


4.) 16 Jan 2018 15:33:51
Your club is finished and you know it, 15 years ago you were invincible to now fighting for 6th place every season with a absolute crap squad of players with an outdated manager with the only top players you have waving good bye to the sinking ship.


 

 

15 Jan 2018 14:27:02
Wenger came across rather oddly in his post-match interview, he looked uncomfortable and not just as a result of the defeat. I have a feeling the new head of scouting and the new guy from Barcelona (who officially arrives in Feb) are running the show. We have sold Coquelin for a reasonably decent price for a failure and we have signed a young, tall defender. It looks like we have achieved an amazing £35m for Sanchez, for 4 months before he could leave on a free. Rumours that we may get a United player in exchange for Sanchez and strong rumours of P-E A and Malcolm, as well as Evans. Debuchy and Walcott may be unloaded as well. Time will tell, but I sense change, at last.

RG61

1.) 15 Jan 2018 14:46:22
Rg there is no change until the the french lieutenant is gone.


2.) 15 Jan 2018 15:00:10
Can i just ask you rg, was coq anymore of a failure than, bellerin, iwobi, chanbers, holding, gabriel, cambell, perez, xhaka, debauchery, jenkinson, ox and the list goes on. For me they are badly coached and badly utilised. Some may or may not have been good enough but they are all arsenal failures. What he is doing with niles is a crime.


3.) 15 Jan 2018 15:46:20
If it is those two calling the shots I would love to know. Think that'll make us fans a bit more patient as it'll take time to rebuild. If it's arsene then we'll we're staying in rubbish creek.


4.) 15 Jan 2018 17:39:24
Your right steve! I wouldn’t waste my money or time on players if he’s going to bring them into this festering team and risk them getting wengered. The only way out of this is to sack Wenger to make a statement, make bold plans and high profile players bought in to create a buzz. It’s a good opertunity for a manager. It’s the reverse in some way to the United loosing SAF . Any manager coming in hasn’t got that shadow anymore and it must be mouthwatering rather than daunting.


5.) 15 Jan 2018 18:05:47
Sano, agree there certainly isn't any shadow anymore. I still can't fathom what he is doing to lacca, why is iwobi starting over walcoor welbeck, i don't understand what kol has done wrong and why isn't niles playing in xhakas place and not left back. All this is just recent stuff that doesn't make sense and isn't working.

Wenger won't go easily, he is extremely resilient and when he does go it won't be for O'Neill.
There may some truth in P-E A and Malcolm. It make sense as bringing in two players, including a huge name, will deflect form the loss of Sanchez.

Signing Lemar worries me as we offered £90m last summer, albeit set against £60m for Sanchez. The problem is that Monaco having been offered £90m will be difficult to deal with at a lower fee and is Lemar actually worth £90m, even in today's inflated market?
Sanchez's boots are difficult to fill and the pressure on an expensive replacement would be huge. Perhaps it would be best to sell Samchez for £30m, of possible, and spend on defensive and DM replacements. We could then look to replacing Sanchez in the summer when things may have quietened down.

Sounds likely as Ozil and Sanchez can demand higher financial packages as free agents, opposed to a team paying Arsenal a transfer fee this month.
In respect of Lemar, firstly I am not at all convinced that he is a £90m player. Secondly, would players sign for Wenger opposed to the managers of other top clubs? He has handled the summer signings quite poorly, dragging Lacazette off in most games, whilst Kolasinac has been benched quite often and recently replaced by a young right footed midfield player, at left back. Time for Wenger to move on, who do we replace him with. My choice would be Simeone, if he has learnt English.

Trophies raver61?
It is a time of change at Arsenal and we still have won 3 FA Cups and 3 Community Shields over the last 4 seasons. We are in the league cup semi-final, with an outside possibility of lifting the trophy.
The toot meanwhile have a manager that has won absolutely nothing, a team that has won absolutely nothing. Reports that Rose, Kane and others want to win trophies or move on and others that want proper wages,
Funny thing is that we are in a crisis, but are sitting just behind the toot, who are also outside the top four.
I love this time of year, when the toots come out the closet and tell us gooners how great they are. It makes the failure all the more delicious. 1961, yes 1961.
