Hi Ed002,
Some great updates lately.

Could you tell us which players are Arsenal looking to sell this window and which teams are showing interest in these players

Thanks as always mate.
Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Aaron Ramsdale (G) Ramsdale is stuck rather and needs to figure out his future with Arsenal. Wolves are very concerned about losing Sa and are keen to take Ramsdale to replace him but have other options. Milan are the same with Maignan. Newcastle may offer a good solution that will be of interest to the player.
Karl Hein (G) Free Agent in the summer.
Takehiro Tomiyasu (RB) Arsenal have been open to listening to offers for the player but would prefer a new contract else are seeking €35M which saw Inter step back. Could return and look to an exchange plus cash for Denzil Dumfries. Interest of Bayern Munich has been dropped.
Kieran Tierney (LB) Real Sociedad offer another loan option with an obligation to buy this time. Celtic may offer an option.
Nuno Tavares (LB) Will look for a new home in the Summer. Nottingham Forest not interested in taking up the option. Marseille spoke with Arsenal.
Aleksandr Zinchenko (LB) Arsenal will keep him unless they can get a good fee, but he is available and Arsenal have been looking at replacements. Newcastle offer a wildcard option.
William Saliba (CB) Real Madrid have scouted Saliba and spoken with his agent. But he is not first choice for them and likely further down the list of options. The player has always said he would like to move to PSG on day, but for now he stays.
Gabriel Magalhaes (CB) Arsenal rejected an approach from Juventus and another from Al-Ittihad last summer. I am not aware of any recent approaches. He will stay.
Jakub Kiwior (CB/LB) Could be priced out of a move to Milan who may look to a loan to buy or to Napoli. Arsenal may block any move and look to giving assurances.
Cedric Soares (CB/RB) No obvious future and could look elsewhere for opportunities when he becomes a Free Agent in the Summer. Besiktas and Villareal offer options. Has already left.
Mohammed Elneny (DM) Free Agent in the summer. Has left.
Thomas Partey (DM) Galatasaray and Fenerbahce have asked after his availability. Juventus interest has moved on. Middle East may be an option but the player is insistent on staying at Arsenal.
Albert Sambi Lokonga (DM) Arsenal will be open to letting him move on as part of the summer clear out. I am not aware of any approaches to Arsenal although his agents will be looking for options.
Jorginho (CM/DM) Ahas agreed a further year at Arsenal after being given assurances.
Charlie Patino (CM) Perhaps another loan - again difficult to see where first team opportunities will come from. Agent looking to move him on and has been speaking to clubs in Italy but I am not aware of any interest.
Emile Smith-Rowe (CM) Wants to leave for more game time. Could be offered to Brentford as part of a part exchange deal for Toney. Brighton, Newcastle or Aston Villa may provide options but the player would likely not be interested. West Ham would like a loan to buy. Napoli interest has gone. A summer move seems possible unless Arsenal give him assurances.
Martin Odegaard (AM/CM) PSG has a declared interest but he is not first choice. Arsenal will want to keep him so he stays.
Fabio Vieira (AM) Marseille and Monaco discussed a loan with Arsenal but Porto may well be interested in buying the player who Arsenal are happy to have move on.
Reiss Nelson (W) No future at Arsenal as anything other than a bit part player. Perhaps a loan to buy somewhere. Brighton may offer an option still if previous interest remains.
Marquinhos (W) A loan to Fluminense will end in December and then the club will consider options, but he will likely be sold in January.
Eddie Nketiah (S) If Arsenal can add Toney or another striker, EN will be allowed to leave. Leicester, Crystal Palace and Wolves may offer options. Brentford may be interested in a part exchange, but I doubt it. Fulham may offer a viable solution. All see the requested fee as too high.
Khayon Edwards (S) Arsenal youngster who I am told is doing very well with his agent saying he should have a chance in the first team, else he will need to look elsewhere on a permanent basis.

Hi Eds,

I've been reading through your previous posts and most of the Osimhen chat refers to Chelsea.

Do Arsenal hold any interest in him at all? I would imagine he would be too expensive, but with Sesko staying put I would imagine that only leaves Toney or Osimhen is really viable options.

Are you aware of any strikers that haven't been discussed on here? Lots of paper chat in recent days about Zirkzee but he looks Milan bound - his numbers aren't that convincing either! Also previous chat of Gyokeres.

Any thoughts or info would be welcome!

 1


{Ed002's Note - Arsenal have a preferred option and see the price as too high for Osimhen. Toney remains the first choice.

Joshua Zirkzee (S) Manchester United had a third-party scout watch him in a game against Roma in December and they decided on Zirkzee as their preferred option but the player was not interested in such a move. Milan has declared an interest knowing Giroud is coming to the end of his contract but don't know if Zirkzee will match his goal tally - and they offer the preferred solution for the player and they now have a tentative agreement. They are looking to add two strikers and the second striker they want is not available, causing a rethink. Bayern Munich have an option to buy the player back but will likely not be interested in following up on it. Napoli offer an option if Osimhen moves but I suspect it will be settled before then. Arsenal have preferred choices but could turn to Zirkzee and Kia is keen on a move to London but the player is keen on and close to MIlan. Player will not move to become cover or second choice likely ruling out Juventus.

Viktor Gyokeres (S) After only joining last summer Sporting have no interest in selling but fear a club could simply pay his €100M buy out clause in full and try to persuade him to move. Sporting fear Chelasea may do that and have avoided the subject during discussions over another player and a separate issue - and Chelsea has a preferred option. He has attracted scouts representing Manchester United, Spurs and Arsenal with Arsenal seeing him as an option to Toney. Spurs may offer a wildcard option but have a preferred option to effectively replace Kane which they failed to do last summer. Sporting are looking to a new contract and an increase in his buy-out clause. Injury will keep him out to probably mid to late July or so. Will likely stay.

The club have considered a number of options but they now need to reconsider or talk to Brentford about Toney.}

Really appreciate the detailed response, thank you.

All eyes on Toney then.

{Ed002's Note - They will be considering others aswell.}

11 Jun 2024 17:23:14
We don’t need a striker we have KING KAI.

 3


11 Jun 2024 08:18:53
David Ornstein confirming Sesko is Arsenal’s first choice striker now. Biggest threat is him staying at Leipzig for one more season.

 1


11 Jun 2024 09:29:03
He has in fact, decided to renew at Leipzig.

08 Jun 2024 20:17:01
Ed002 is ramsdale going and who is interested? Thqnks.

{Ed002's Note - Aaron Ramsdale (G) Ramsdale is stuck rather and needs to figure out his future with Arsenal. Wolves are very concerned about losing Sa and are keen to take Ramsdale to replace him but have other options. Milan are the same with Maignan. Newcastle may offer a good solution that will be of interest to the player.}

ED 002,
You might not want to answer this one if so I understand .
Has Arsenal officially talked to any club or player's agent?
Thanks for whatever the answer it is .

 3


{Ed002's Note - I don't know what you mean by "officially". They talk to clubs and agents year around.}

 5


07 Jun 2024 09:48:47
Thanks but what I meant has any offer been made?

 1


{Ed002's Note - For which player.}

 2


08 Jun 2024 07:21:57
Any . What I meant was has Arsenal made an official approach to any club for any player for this season? Incoming or outgoing . Sorry for not having it made clear earlier and made you answer twice .

 2


08 Jun 2024 07:24:25
Have we made any offer to any club to be more precise?

 2


08 Jun 2024 23:15:50
Gora, offer been made to Santa cazorla apparently.

{Ed014's Note - you bored of the Chelsea page fuser?

09 Jun 2024 14:04:36
Ed014 yeah pretty much, transfer season not really started, euros not started. Found the post funny so replied, was all in good humour no?

{Ed014's Note - no issues with me fuser, just a little out of date with Santi 😂

 2


10 Jun 2024 15:41:59
Ed014, Seemed fitting with the question of; has any bid gone in for any player, incoming or outgoing at any point in time 😂.

{Ed014's Note - 😂

04 Jun 2024 12:45:11
Hello everyone.
Would like to ask the Eds about our striking options.
Sesko, Osminhen, Rashford, Isak. Toney
They are main ones being linked.
If it came down to personal choice who would be their choice and why.
Have not seen hard anything of Sesko or Osimhen, so out of the other 3 my choice would be Isak
My thanks in advance.

 4


{Ed002's Note - I have already answered about Osimhen and Sesko today.

Marcus Rashford (LW/F) Much will depend on what happens in the summer regarding a new coach, but I am sure Manchester United will be regretting the new long-term contract. A third-party has spoken to clubs, including Juventus and Arsenal about him on behalf of Manchester United, but I am not aware of any serious interest and both clubs have other targets. Spurs may offer a wildcard solution to replace Richarlison. Suggestion that he could be a Mbappe replacement at PSG seem far-fetched given they have other clear targets in mind.

Alexander Isak (S) Newcastle have no intention of selling Isak and will let Bruno Guimaraes be sold.

Ivan Toney (S) Brentford do not want to sell but are aware Toney may look to move up a step and will reluctantly look to perhaps £70M as a sale price in the summer - but will likely not get anything close to that. Newcastle, if they can sell their project to him, offer the chance of a return to the club who previously could find no use for him in the three years he was there - but that would only be in the most unlikely event they lose Isak. Arsenal, Leeds, Manchester United, Spurs, Chelsea and West Ham have all sent scouts on more than one occasion to watch him prior to his ban, but Chelsea and Spurs have preferred options meaning West Ham, Arsenal or Manchester United are likely best placed to complete a transfer. First choice for Arsenal.}

Thanks Ed mate
In depth as always.

 3


05 Jun 2024 13:15:29
Arsenal have moved on from Toney. Sesko is priority it seems.

 2


{Ed002's Note - What if Sesko signs for one of the other interested sides?}

 3


05 Jun 2024 22:10:32
Then we move onto the next option but there is no way he chooses Chelsea or UTD over Arsenal. Chelsea are a shambles of a club.

 3


07 Jun 2024 10:30:08
Money talks mate if they offer more wages then arsenal he might join them.

 2


07 Jun 2024 16:53:46
A shambles of a club? We took 2 years off to rebuild after the sanctions and sale of the club. Hopefully coming together now and looking forward to giving you lot a challenge next season. In peace.

08 Jun 2024 21:40:51
Chelsea have quickly turned in Tottenham unless they get their act together and get world class manager they ain't winning anything.

 3


09 Jun 2024 08:16:02
Ed002 is sesko going to chelsea then? And what is stopping us doing the toney deal now? He has a year left and a deal should be pretty straightforward i would guess? Thanks.

 1


{Ed002's Note - Benjamin Sesko (S/F) RBL could be offered a quick profit. His agent has not stopped offering the player around since his move to RBL. Described by a well known ex-Premier League player and high-end scout as "raw but improving". Was on the list for Spurs as a potential Kane replacement but their interest has moved on to another player that they are now pushing for. Newcastle enquired as they were concerned they will lose Isak - but continue to struggle to sell their project to players and will look to keep hold of Isak over Guimaraes. They can now be discounted. Borussia Dortmund offer a wildcard solution. Chelsea have spoken with his agent when they had a preferred option, do not discount them as he is now likely their first choice. Arsenal have met with his agent but he appears to only be second choice for them still. Milan offer an option as a potential Giroud replacement and they are looking at adding two strikers this coming summer, but they are resigned to not signing Sesko and are looking to another now. A option for Manchester United who need to replace Anthony Martial this summer - but Sesko will not move to simply be cover so that needs to be clarified. Does not want to move to Saudi Arabia but is on Michael Emenalo's list. The release clause will be be €65M until June 30 after which his cost will go up - but RBL want an answer before the Euros begin so they can secure their preferred replacement. Chelsea would look to a deal on the cusp of the year end with the fee not paid before July 1 unless they are pushed.

There is nothing stopping Arsenal making an offer for Toney.}

03 Jun 2024 23:24:59
Ed002 reports that chelsea will not get osimhen and will go for sesko. Where is he likely going? And Could we go for osimhen now? can we get him cheaper than the clause?

 2


{Ed002's Note - Victor Osimhen (S) Napoli made it clear to Chelsea who enquired in 2021 that even €100M would not buy the player - but they do maintain an interest and he was first choice but they are looking elsewhere after not getting awarm response from the player - but some at the club are still confident he will sign - I rather doubt it but Napoli are interested in Lukaku. Al Hilal may well have offered Napoli the huge fee they were looking for, but that may not suit the player just yet. Real Madrid could look to him as an option to Haaland but Madrid would want to offer players in exchange and ideally they would want to wait another year. He signed a new contract and, at the behest of his agent, included a release clause. Arsenal had a preferred option but are less confident that he will sign and see the price of Osimhen as too high - but they might try to offer Smith-Rowe as part of the deal - but Napoli want to keep things simple. PSG have him on a list of potential Mbappe replacements and they are looking at a LW and a S to minimise the impact of Mbappe departing - but their focus is on a high-end goalscoring LW initially. If Manchester City were to lose Haaland, he would be an option but it won't be this summer. Manchester United may offer a wildcard option but the change of staff could end any interest. Liverpool are not an option. There will be a return from Michael Emanalo with a very good offer. Right , it seems he may well stay another year in Naples which means they may need to sell Khvicha Kvaratskhelia unless Arsenal pay the release clause.

Benjamin Sesko (S/F) RBL could be offered a quick profit. His agent has not stopped offering the player around since his move to RBL. Described by a well known ex-Premier League player and high-end scout as "raw but improving". Was on the list for Spurs as a potential Kane replacement but their interest has moved on to another player that they are now pushing for. Newcastle enquired as they are concerned they will lose Isak - but continue to struggle to sell their project to players and will look to keep hold of Isak over Guimaraes. Chelsea spoke with his agent although they have a preferred option, do not discount them making an offer. Milan offer an option as a potential Giroud replacement and they are looking at adding two strikers this coming summer. Arsenal have met with his agent but he appears to only be second choice for them still. A option for Manchester United who need to replace Anthony Martial this summer - but Sesko will not move to simply be cover so that needs to be clarified. Does not want to move to Saudi Arabia but on Michael Emanalo's list. The release clause will be be €65M until June 30.}

Good morning Ed thanks for the great reply there, who is our first choice.

{Ed002's Note - Toney.}

01 Jun 2024 18:32:19
Ruell Walters apparently has interest up North from Rangers we get compensation package.

01 Jun 2024 06:48:54
ED 002,
Do we have any interest in Santiago Gimenez?

Thanks as always .

 2


{Ed002's Note - Santiago Gimenez (S) Having another good season at Feyenoord and attracting interest of Chelsea, Lille, Spurs, Real Madrid, Napoli and Eintracht Frankfurt. He has become the first choice Harry Kane replacement for Spurs after they lost out on their preferred option last summer but not first choice for Chelsea or Real Madrid - although don't discount either. Spurs have an advantage that Feyenoord are interested in a Spurs player, Barcelona may offer a wildcard option following a discussion between Deco and someone they are trying to recruit. Arsenal sent scouts but have a preferred option. Others, such as Marseille, Crystal Palace and West Ham can be discounted. Lille and Eintracht Frankfurt would only be viable if they make significant sales and others drop out. Cost could be pretty high - they will look for perhaps €55M - ending interest of most of these clubs. Don't discount Napoli who are planning for life after Osimhen. I expect Spurs to push.}

Hi Ed,
It’s been a minute. Raising a mini-gooner now, which has taken up a lot of time but still check in on the page (almost) daily.
Youssouf Fofana would seem like a shrewd bit of business. Any truth to that story?
Thanks!

 3


{Ed002's Note - Youssouf Fofana (CM/DM) Chelsea have strong ties with Monaco and the clubs have discussed him but he is not first choice for Chelsea. Manchester United may see him as an option but he would not be a direct Casemiro replacement. However, MIlan and Juventus have declared an interest and the wages would not be an issue with local tax laws and Milan may push now. Arsenal provide another option as they seek a replacement for Partey and Jorginho. A wildcard would be PSG.

And great news for you of course.}

Edoo2 is it true other clubs are interested in signing Saliba and Gabriel.

 2


{Ed002's Note - William Saliba (CB) Real Madrid have scouted Saliba and spoken with his agent. But he is not first choice for them and likely further down the list of options. The player has always said he would like to move to PSG.
Gabriel Magalhaes (CB) Arsenal rejected an approach from Juventus and another from Al-Ittihad last summer. I am not aware of any recent approaches.}

01 Jun 2024 19:08:22
This is where will show our worth. We will always get interest for our players and that's a mark of quality players that we have. I am glad we were able to rebuff any interest in Gabriel last summer I hope we can do te same again this summer. We can not dream of selling our best players if we want to remain in contention with Mancity we need to get stronger not stay the same or become weaker.
