Hi Eds

Stepping aside of all the paper talk and much covered, ongoing sagas with Benzema, Carvalho and a few others; are there any other players that haven't been mentioned in the press that you're aware Monsieur Wenger is very interested in?

I ask simply because of how the Ozil and to some extent Sanchez transfers went down - no-one really expected or knew anything about Ozil in the public...

Cheers, Gav

PS - you can trust us on here, we won't tell anyone ;-)


{Ed002's Note - I have no idea which players have been mentioned in the press. Many clubs are still looking at bringing in players for next season, including Arsenal. The club have particular targets in mind and will not be drawn in to making irrational buys if the players they want are not available.}

Would that still be the case as it gets to the end of the window and the main targets are unobtainable. Would we panicbuy or not buy ananyone?

{Ed025's Note - arsene does not panic buy eden, if he really wants a player then he will more than likely get him imo mate..

Thainks ed, I like to hope you're right but every time I think that I think of welbeck....

{Ed025's Note - for me danny was not a panic buy eden but a good back up at a reasonable price mate..

Will will have to agree to disagree :) for a similar price you could get austin, who imo would do a better job in girouds absence

I also agree mate - Arteta has been a good servant to the club in fairness to him; he's not good enough to challenge for the title. The only reason Wenger has kept him around is because we don't have another world class DM to challenge Le Coq and Flamini should be leaving this summer.

I really do hope Wenger does sign Carvalho/ Bender or the like as leaving it until next summer seems to last minute - any new player will need to adapt and get harmonised with the team and the league, and possibly the language.

Eds can you expand slightly on your comment about buy out clauses? Curious as to what you mean and after the Suarez 'slap round the face' am unsure exactly what one is!

Cheers mate.


{Ed002's Note - {Ed002's Note - This is a horribly complex area not least because they are written under individual national laws.

The "buy out" clause is legally binding between a club and a player. The "buy out" is effectively what it says - a means for the player to buy himself out of the contract. As an example, if a player wishes to buy himself out of a contract, he pays the applicable FA the amount of the "buy out" clause effectively becoming a free agent. The problem is that in most cases a player would need to obtain that money from the buying club - and this is fraught with issues regarding "tapping up" and, of course, taxation as it can be seen as income for the player and would therefore be subject to income tax. There was a test case about the taxation issue in Spain about three years ago. So "buy out" clauses are very rare.

A "release clause" is far more common in that it gives a figure that the club would accept for the sale of a player to another club - but it is not legally binding except where both parties are in the same country (for the sake of argument I should say that Spain and Portugal count as the same country as do England and Wales). These are normally unreasonably high figures (Messi at Barcelona for example) introduced to act as a deterrent for hostile bids - and even then the club could easily block a move. However, if a club does agree to match a release clause then the selling club would be obliged to ask the player if he is interested - there is no obligation on the player to make a move. Examples are Goetze who decide he wanted to move and Cavani who, regardless of two offers that were made in 2012 that matched or equated to his then "release clause" recognised Napoli did not want to sell and could block a move abroad and he accepted a new package. Since then Napoli said they will listen to offers of €60M or so and indeed accepted a bid the following summer - which is of course different.

There is then the becoming popular "termination clause" which is binding between the player and the club and if met would see an offer from anywhere accepted and the player given the opportunity to make a call on a move. This overcomes the issues associated with "buy out" clauses as the money would be paid by one club to another.}

Surely this will all depend on whether Ospina is ok with being Cech's number 2 as if not, and he pushes for a move out of the Emirates we'll need Woeful to hang around...

Do not agree at all Wire - good player for sure but not what we need in any way right now.

>>> DM - We need an upgrade on Coq, if anything, or someone to challenge him who could be better now or in the future (i.e. Carvalho, Bender = proper DM players)

>>> Deeper midfielder/ playmaker - Cazorla, Wilshere, Ramsay... no place for Moutinho there.
