Hi eds,

Any truth in these torreira rumours? Or is it all just paper talk.

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what you are talking about, sorry.}

Is there any truth that ac Milan are looking to buy Torreira Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Yes they are interested in him as they cannot sign their preferred option.}

Ed if Torreira is sold have we anyone lined up to take his place.

Sorry who are we looking at to replace him.

{Ed002's Note - He has not been sold. What is wrong with you?}

I think the question they're trying to ask Ed is, reports a circling that Torreira is unsettled and is looking to leave. Arsenal I can't imagine want to sell him but are they somewhat open to it for the players sake?

My question is, if they do sell, surely in today's market, Arsenal will demand more than the 40 million that's being mentioned?

{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer questions about any "reports", but as has been explained he is a player Milan are interested in because that cannot sign their first choice. That is it.}

This all stems from Torreira saying he's finding the English language difficult to learn, that's it.
But the papers turned finding learning English difficult into finding living in England difficult into his family not being happy in England or liking the weather or even the food in England because London only offers fish and chips and Yorkshire pudding and the Italian weather being so warm all year round.
I bet Torreira will be more careful about what he says in future, imagine if he went to see the Fredie Mercury film and said he wasn't a fan of Queens music :-) the press would want him deported on the grounds of treason:-)

{Ed047's Note - He said at the end of the interview in question that he had time to adapt but it’s best for the press to conveniently miss that part out or there’s no story.

Absolutely Ed047 mate why give people the real picture which they will forget in minutes when you can feed them total rubbish that will keep them coming back for more weeks and weeks later and no matter how often these media sources are proved to be making it all up people still keep believing everything they tell them time after time.
It's a strange phanononm.

Hi all, long time no post!

Have been told by someone very close to edu that he is not exactly sure what his duties will be, he has a real passion for this club and wishes to be involved in transfers / recruitment etc but will not stick around unless he is involved - hope he helps us find some real young talent and is allowed to do a job for us.

Ed 02 there's a few whispers around about us wanting Florian Thauvin because they need to sell players. Do you know if we have any interest? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Marseille are talking to several sides about players - but not Arsenal at this time.}

Hello Eds,
Is Nkunku still a player that Arsenal are interested in or have they decided to move on from him?
Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Sure - there remains interest - particularly as Arsenal are struggling to get the players they want.}

23 Jun 2019 00:36:27
Thanks Ed. When you say struggling to get the players they want, is that in regards to Praet and Szoboszlai? I don't think Nkunku would a step down personally and the asking price of around €18m isn't too bad.

{Ed002's Note - There are plenty of players.}

David Ornstein saying we have had a bid of 15 rejected, but can see us coming back with an improved offer and personal term shouldn’t be a problem any truth in this ed, he’s not a bad source isn’t he.

{Ed047's Note - There’s no previous post linked to this to know who you’re talking about Welshgunner.

22 Jun 2019 16:47:04
He's talking about Tierney Ed047. Orstein has posted on the BBC saying that our 15m offer was rejected and that we're optimistic that a deal can be done.

Sorry ed mate didn’t realise I didn’t put a name, the sun and 8 pints I blame.

{Ed047's Note - Sounds like a great Saturday afternoon Welsh! Ornstein is normally fairly reliable mate but we hear so many times how Arsenal are reluctant to offer the going rate.

I always wait until they’re wearing the shirt, can’t go wrong then.

Couldn't agree more Ed. Arsenal being set to make an improved offer probably means 17m 😂.

The fact Ormstein is reporting it at least means we are genuinely in talks about signing the player which is a huge step up from most of the nonsense stories.

Ed is there any truth to arsenal's link to Kieran Tierney of celtic?

{Ed002's Note - Kieran Tierney (LB) emerging option as other targets are not looking viable and Arsenal cannot get the players they want - but there is interest in KT from elsewhere

20 Jun 2019 12:23:37
Thanks Ed, do you expect interest from elsewhere to win out?

{Ed002's Note - I have no expectations about it.}

Hey Ed. Is one of the players they want that they can’t obtain Alaba?

{Ed002's Note - Sort of - there is the opportunity not being exploited.}

Jeff Reine-Adelaide could have done a job for us this season.

Whether he would have become good enough to be a starter in the long term or not the jury is still out, but he offers a lot more than Denis Suarez..

Shame, I always like seeing youth be given a chance, but (other than Guendouzi) Emery doesn't seem to trust many of our young players. Everything crossed Freddie changes that.

I don't know how fair that is on Emery or not, but there's a number of young players looking nearer the first team than in ages. Holding would have been starting lots of games if not for his injury, Iwobi pushed on this season. Willock, Nketiah, Smith-Rowe all got pretty good game time. Maitland-Niles was trusted over Lichsteiner/ Mustafi for the majority of the season, although you can see there's not much choice there! AMN is a good example of what we should expect when playing youth though. Lots of promise in his good games, but his frankly shocking performance in the UEFA final is the flip side. I'm happy to accept it from a young player though, with the hope that they grow into a team and style that is well performing, but also allows room for some extra quality signings to fill the gaps.

All of those players were here before Emery arrived. Holding and Iwobi have been first team players for a few years, Maitland-Niles has been on the periphery a few years and broke through last year. And let's not forget between AMN's injury and form at the start of the season, Lichtsteiner was preferred as our alternative to Bellerin by Emery until his performances were SO shocking he had to be dropped. Willock and Nketiah were clearly not trusted - when we looked dead on our feet in the run in they didn't play. Smith Rowe, like Nelson, was farmed out on loan.

FWIW I don't think this is particularly controversial, Emery wasn't know for bringing youth players through at his other clubs, and he clearly doesn't trust our youth players - pushing for the signing of a crocked, unfit and average Suarez in Jan for more money than we let Reine-Adelaide move on for shows that. Freddie's new role suggests the club have this in mind.

(The exception is Guendouzi, but I wouldn't be surprised if he hadn't been promised a certain amount of game time to sign with us in the first place)

Having 14 experienced players and 14 to 16 inexpensived players in the squad might be a good balance that with injuries suspensions etc will naturally create opportunity.
There seems little point in having Miki Elneny Litch on the bench on very good money that has no return on investment potential when you could have players who ballance the wage problem we have plus MIGHT one day return you a profit.
If Emery had gone down this route last season he'd and we would be in a much betrer position than we are currently because Emery now has all this doubt about his own abilty to organise motivate his team especially defensively.
Last season Emery had a clean slate this season he's going into the season with all eyes on his ability or inability to set a team up that isn't constantly exposed defensively every fan pundit and commentator will be looking to highlight any improvement and of course put the spotlight clearly where there isn't any improvement.
If somehow Emery can sort out the defensive side of his team and have lots of promising young players in his squad then he could yet win round the doubters, the huge questions are being asked of Emery now and he simply has to answer them in the first half of the season ahead.

I suppose a lot of it comes down to whether we look at Emery as a solution, the man to take us forward, the man to build a team in his image; or we look at him as a short term measure to steady the ship and get us back into the Champions League while the infrastructure of the club is built/ improved to bring the club into the modern era.

It would be great if he has a huge improvement over the summer, but my gut feeling is the latter, and to be fair to him, we were only one result away from Champions League football*. Either way, it should be an exciting summer.

*To be less fair his decisions arguably cost us the result we needed to be top-4.

I'd rather we waited for our champions league return until we can make an impression beyond simply getting out of the group stages.
8 last 16 exits on the trot did nothing for our reputation in world football and when we get back I'd like it to be different next time round.

Hello Eds
Reports suggesting that we are in contact with Kimpembe's dad. He has been developing consistently in PSG and has played under Emery. Is there any truth in these rumours and can you share any info you have regarding the same? I feel he would be perfect for Arsenal, young, good on the ball quick and strong
Thanks again for the brilliant work you guys are doing.

{Ed002's Note - I know nothing of it at all.}

Surely we should be in contact with Kimpembe, not his dad? How are we ever going to improve if we start signing 60 year olds :)

Hello ed, can you tell us about whether we are expected to sign William Saliba or give us a summary of what is happening with him.

{Ed002's Note - Expectations are high that he will agree to the move.}

For 20 plus million surly he had to start that’s a lot of money for. 18 year old.

French newspaper reporting that he will be signed and loaned back for the next season. Signing seems to match the profile but the loaning back makes little to no sense to me unless the club are seriously considering either Chambers/ Mavropanos as first team option (s) .

Thanks Ed, I expected that but do you expect arsenal to pay the asking price?

{Ed002's Note - I don't see why not.}

Are we going to send him back on loan Ed? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I really don't know the plan.}

How about Kimpembe, ed?

{Ed002's Note - I would think it expensive and unlikely.}
