Hearing from multiple places that Mahrez and Lacazette are done deals? Eds can you shed any light?


{Ed001's Note - personally I expect both to go through at some point this window, but I do not know of any 'done deal' right now.}

1.) 02 Jul 2017 18:12:32
Thank you for the quick reply ed. My thoughts are providing that these deals are legit. Either our pursuit of Lemar has ended or if we are still interested then I believe Sanchez or/ and ox are going to be on their way. Which is disappointing but atleast our business is getting done early.

{Ed001's Note - I believe Monaco are not looking to sell Lemar and will only sell for obscene money. They had an agreement dating from the previous summer to sell Fabinho this time around, which they are honouring. That sale ensures they can play hardball with the rest and only sell if it suits them or the player wants to go.}

2.) 02 Jul 2017 19:06:10
I like mahrez, but if we continue with 3 at the back and use wing backs, not sure where he wit fit in?

{Ed001's Note - as part of the front 3 I would expect.}

3.) 02 Jul 2017 19:07:32
If we lose Sanchez, as expected, I would be happy to see Mahrez in an Arsenal shirt, providing he can reproduce his performances from the Leicester title winning team.

The Ox? Sorry I just don't see the fascination with him.
I don't want him to leave, but £20m for an injury prone player who has flashes of brilliance, no brainer.

4.) 02 Jul 2017 20:52:03
I think we need to be mentally prepared for Sanchez leaving and lacazette being a replacement.

The hope is that Arsenal and Bayern can agree something!

Lacazette is much more like Sanchez than Tomas Lemar. In fact, Lemar is more like Ozil.

Bare in mind Sanchez led the attack for most of the season.

I expect a front three of:

With Walcott / Oxlaide / Iwobi as cover.

Perez may leave, in which case wenger make look at one more attacker.

I think that's probably it for the summer unless Ospina leaves.

5.) 02 Jul 2017 21:21:20
I'm physically prepared for Sanchez leaving mate but not mentally prepared 😂.

6.) 03 Jul 2017 00:35:33
We need to keep Sanchez regardless if he has no interest in a new deal. Like Saurez, winning is in their DNA. Saurez was desperate for a move and pushed for it as much as humanly possible. Rogers stayed strong, kept him beyond all odds and thanks to his unreal season they nearly won the league. I say let's prove to him and the loyal fans we are a force again!



28 Jun 2017 22:10:21
Sky reporting we have had bids for Lacazette and Lemar rejected. It feels like Groundhog Day again I hope the club really renegotiate these bids and get the deals done.


1.) 29 Jun 2017 11:12:16
Top players are extremely difficult to sign, as their clubs rarely want to sell them, the selling clubs have to secure replacements, there is competition from other clubs to sign them, the players have high demands through savvy agents, etc.
The sole signing so far is Kolasinac who we signed on a free, which is slightly simpler, as it cuts out his club and he was able to start negotiating last January. Don't forget the window doesn't officially open until July 1st, so we may not hear until then if any signings have been made.

2.) 29 Jun 2017 12:01:53
Now we all understand why the likes of united have paid over the odds for players in the past. Everyone's for sale and the price has gone up because replacements have gone up .

3.) 29 Jun 2017 13:20:12
Players are also very difficult to sign when there is uncertainty at the club. And there is lots at ours: squad, manager, etc.

4.) 29 Jun 2017 15:08:53
Do we want to sell Belerin or Sanchez? Will we? Yes if they like the club that wants then and that club pays what it takes to get then.
Few players are actually available for transfer but loads change clubs each summer simply because the buying club has the desire to make it happen.

5.) 29 Jun 2017 16:49:46
What I was trying to imply is I hope the club isn't going to abandon deals over say around about 5 or 10 million More. Because we have done in the past and this market you have to overpay for a lot of players esp if your a premier league team.

6.) 29 Jun 2017 19:48:41
Honestly a rejected bid isn't a disaster, it happens all the time. Even if the asking price is met, a seller isn't obliged to sell, and a player isn't obliged to sign (unless pushed out) . Transfers are such a complex mechanism that I can fully appreciate why the ed's are so blunt in their responses on occassion. Bleeding heart romantics belong in story books:) I think it's fairly obvious who Arsenal are linked to - I'm more interested in what kind of formation will we start with should they go through!

7.) 29 Jun 2017 21:03:40
Has to get these over the line! £30m on Lemar and no indication of a price on the table fro Lacazette. They want £57m! Surely £87m is enough!

But if they are rejecting £30m for Lemar, we must be looking at £100m+ for both players!

Only worry is Sanchez. Lemar coming in must mean he's on the way out if we get him! Or he fails on Lacazette and plays Sanchex up front on his own.

How serious are arsenal with the fekir interest? He looks to really be coming of age this season relishing being the top man now Alex is with us.


1.) 22 Jan 2018 16:48:09
We would have 3 number tens then lol.



25 Jul 2017 18:39:35
With these Neymar to PSG rumours heating up. My question is if PSG were to land Neymar would Sanchez still be a target for them or is it as wenger assumed one or the other? The more I hear wenger the more i feel that Sanchez will probably now see out his contract. Thanks in advance guys.


1.) 25 Jul 2017 21:52:21
From what I've read they want both, apprraently :-)
As for what Arsene says without being disrespectful at all it's not unfair to say he doesn't always say what he truly thinks and quite often paints a more positive picture than how things are in reality.

2.) 25 Jul 2017 23:12:00
I think sanchez is their back up option to neymar.



07 Jun 2017 01:21:06
All these rumours of Mbappe cause wenger is in Nice. Could it be possible he's looking at Jean Seri? More likely then Mbappe?


1.) 07 Jun 2017 08:15:16
People like to get themselves excited by the prospect of signing players who have lots of options but unfortunately it usually ends up in disappointment simply because rival clubs or players current club can offer either or both higher wages or more chance of big trophies.
I would be looking at players just below those other big clubs radars right now, Payet cost West ham 10m Kante cost Leicester 5m two seasons back and I think both would have chosen us over West ham and Leicester if we'd gone fur them but we were to busy waiting for Benzema and Higuain to change his minds and join us.
Let Utd City Chelsea Barcelona Bayern Juve Real fight it out for the hottest most expensive prospects and consentrate on the battles we have a real chance of winning and who knows next summer or the one after that we might look a lot more attractive to really top players than we do at the moment.
I'd rather see us spend 20m each on 5 good players who will improve and bring in serious competion for places throughout the squad than spend 100m on one player or a kid who might or might not be brilliant in the future.

2.) 07 Jun 2017 10:56:37
Look what happened to the other child prodigy from Monaco who had a good season and came for big money to the EPL! What is his name again? Oh yes martial. I wouldn't be against mbappe but we need a few others as well. But it's all Purim the sky I'm afraid.

3.) 07 Jun 2017 11:23:03
Martial for me will never live upto the hype. Two kids and divorced at 20. Its effected him I feel and he's more limited than mbappe imo mbappe better in just about every department.

4.) 07 Jun 2017 13:37:47
I agree with that derby but at three times the price!

5.) 07 Jun 2017 13:38:38
G62, we should be able to match Juventus and Bayern as financially were are about the same size; its only in ambition that we act a lot smaller! I do disagree with the whole let's sign five players when one would do mentality though. We all lament over the lack of opportunity for our youth players, and then what, go and sign another 5 players who would push the likes of Rene-Adelaide and Maitland-Niles further down the line? I would rather we blew our transfer budget on just 1 or two players who would be game changers, and who would expect to be in the first 11 team each week. I would actually prefer us to then clear out a few of the established squad players to give more opportunity for our youngsters to participate in the first 11 squad, and more importantly to be retained so they can train and play for our club, rather than go out on loan to play in a lower league. We have among the best training facilities in the country, so i just don't understand why we send our youngsters to go play and train at a club with worse facilities, I mean, its not exactly worked well over the last few years has it! Saying that I also think it would be strange if we blew nearly 100m on an 18 year old when we don't keep and play our own 18 year old's. Perhaps we will sign Mbappe and then loan him out to Ipswich for 2 seasons!

6.) 07 Jun 2017 14:50:19
Epping, I'm with you. Buy in a couple of quality first teamers.

I do agree with gunner about not wantingto buy mbop, but don't think we're genuinely in for him right now anyway though- more likely told him hed love to have him but in his best interest to develop where he is.

With regard to payet, as an example, I don't think it was him not on our radar or us competing for players that other clubs want. AW said that he knew payet had talent but had not been at all consistent up until west ham and questions over profession and deemed it not worth the risk. Seems justified now.

I'd just really like the club to go all out for lacazette, tie down the ox and maybe bring in a quality defensive midfielder or winger/ attacking midfielder.

7.) 07 Jun 2017 15:59:21
Jim If Payet had had the 2015/ 16 season for us he had for West ham we'd have been champions that season, the point isn't actually about Kante and Payet as individuals it's about the type of signings wed have feared better chasing rather than chasing Higguain and Benzema rainbows.
As for youths Epping mate who was the last team to bring through a host of youth players and win the title? Look at Jack and Gibbs we've spent years waiting for them to become all we hoped they would be and Bentner too
We need to shop according to what we both are prepared to pay and who we can realistically attract
We don't need the very best players to be the best team we just need the right players who can do their job well in the system we play, unfortunately for us Poch and Spurs are doing just that and not wasting their time or worrying about who they can't attract just getting the best they can and getting the most out of them.

8.) 07 Jun 2017 17:06:24
I hear you sanogo mbappe price is very high. but it should be used as a statement stan should juat say arsene there you go thanks for staying. or if i'm wenger I want him stan bottles it i'm gone.

i Agree on lacazette i'd pay for 50mill and get it done iv wanted him in for past few seasons. not sure why we didn't push that one through.
most of the summer depends on whos staying who's going then we can plan.

I think 3 signings could well become 6 this summer not down to our own choice.

9.) 07 Jun 2017 17:53:51
We should already have our targets set out surely Derby and rather than wait for people to commit who havrnt already we should be deciding treating them as ex players mentally, we've had months to identify what we need and who can do the job we need them to do and the players we are waiting on have had that same time period to make their minds up too.
If we are playing 3 4 3 we need 4 full backs with good engines who can cross a ball well and who are prepared to work tirelessly up and down their wing, we need 5 CBs who are capable of working in a 3 man unit and who understand their and each others jobs and the system inside out, we need 4 disciplined CM who are capable of both breaking up play plus turning defense into attack who understand their roles in a 2 man partnership 100% then 5 pacey attacking players who to provide the final product as part of a 3 man attack.
Finding the players isn't the difficult but it's getting the best out of them where the art is.

10.) 07 Jun 2017 18:25:45
we will have targets but alexis staying or going surely changes things ospina goes etc.

11.) 07 Jun 2017 18:34:38
Personally if I was manager I would know the answer to wether he was staying or going by now because if he hadn't made his mind up by 1st of June I'd have made it up for him and anyone else who couldn't or wouldn't commit to the club 100% by then mate.

12.) 07 Jun 2017 21:57:24
I'm with you derby! But if the budget is 100m for example and it all goes on him I wouldn't be satisfied. But if that's possible and we buy two more quality players then that's a perfect summer.

13.) 07 Jun 2017 23:53:20
if the budget is 100mil we may aswel give up. I see players leaving who I don't know.

I have been a long term reader of this website. I just wanna thank all the eds for the effort they put in and that's about it.


{Ed002's Note - Thanks Sunny - we appreciate it.}

{Ed001's Note - I think he said all that needs to be said about your 'jokes' dags....}

2.) 16 May 2017 17:10:03
Sorry dags. Dunno about others but I prefer my jokes funny.

3.) 16 May 2017 19:29:11
Fair point Ed 😂

Behave D16 lol.

I second that. For all the scrutiny he got, he played his heart out for the club and gave his all. Top professional and scored some big goals for us aswell. Saved us a few times. I wish him the best though and if it meant he had to go for us to get aubameyang. Then I will take it.

I’m not slating your opinion on malcom. I agree he is young and not a big name but from what I have seen he looks a real player. My question to you is do you think we can attract the world class talent you are saying we need. My answer to that would be not at the moment. The club aren’t In a good situation and we don’t pay excessive wages so it will be very difficult to do so. So if I means taking a punt on young players who can potentially be quality then so be it. There isn’t many other options available.

From what I’ve seen he’s a very capable player so for 44 million i would take that. You think Arsenal can still attract the world class players. I think buying players who are young but have world class potential is the best we can do. Or take bench players from big clubs.


{Ed001's Note - he is a winger and scores goals, the lad is quality and is likely to go to the World Cup with Brazil. Malcom would be a class above the rest of the players in the current Arsenal team, without Ozil and Sanchez. Not that that is saying much admittedly.}

Sky are saying Monaco want 50 million. If we really want him we should pay up. The fact we haven't moved for Mahrez despite the interest from Roma indicates possibly that we are confident of getting lemar.

28 Jul 2017 23:09:02
The fact that Mahrez is heavily linked with Roma and we still haven't made a move for him yet suggests that Arsenal must be confident in landing Lemar and Monaco lowering the price as the window nears the end.
