Hi Ed, any truth in the links to Ben White?

{Ed002's Note - Ben White (CB) an alternative to Pau Torres for Manchester United, but seen as expensive because of the "English premium". Spurs have sustained interest but the funding will go on other priorities. Liverpool has an interest but will opt for Konate. Leeds would like to take him back but on a permanent basis but find that asking price unattractive. Arsenal showed interest last summer but opted early on for the cheaper Saliba who is expected to now have his chance - else they will need a CB. Added to PSG options as preferred target fall away but English players are not good travellers. If finances allow Mr Mourinho has included him on the list of players he was interested in when joining Roma but it seems unlikely. Brighton will look to hang on to him unless a very good offer is made.}

Ed, are you saying Saliba will not go on loan or sold but rather get a chance to play for us? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - That is why Arsenal paid a hefty fee for him.

Hi Eds, are Arsenal seriously interested in Yves Bissouma?

{Ed077's Note - RTFP. Done to death.

I can see why the Ed’s get annoyed, I’ve seen the same question more than five time just scroll down before you post.

Arsenal had the 3rd best defence in the league last season. We are crying out for a LB, RB and 2 Centre Midfielder players and now we're supposedly serious about signing Ben White.

Don't get me wrong, I think Ben White is a fine player and usually i'd be buzzing by this but this is most Arsenal thing I've ever seen.
We have one of the most talented youngsters at CB in the game in Saliba and he hasn't played a minute, yet we look set to offer crazy money for Ben White.

If we are going to offer 40-50m for a Brighton player it has to be Bissouma!
What on earth is going on at Arsenal 🤦🏻‍♂️😂.

If it’s to replace rob holding then I don’t mind.

Neves might be a better fit than Bissouma and he’s allegedly the main midfield target.

There has to be more to the Saliba situation. MA can't ignore the stats from his playing time last season, he was great. Looks the real deal and ready to start at CB for us next season.

There has to be issues that we are not privy too, otherwise I agree it makes 0 sense.

I remember him and Guendouzi on social media making a mokery of not starting, so possibly he has a poor attitude? Just all a bit odd.

If Ben White rumours are true, Saliba won’t be in Emirates next season. If not, this transfer doesn’t make any sense at all. And to replace Rob with a 50M CB doesn’t make sense either.

It sure is lefty mate and maybe there is more to it but you have to give the lad a shot. He's probably annoyed because he was signed for near 30m and possibly had assurances over game time? Who knows.
I just find it typical of Arsenal that we are looking at a player that we don't really need with the backup we have. If we get the business done in the important positions first and then move for White then fair play but if we don't sign a LB, RB and CM cover then we're not set up probably going in to the new season.

I am truly baffled by the interest in Ben White. I am told that Arteta is worried about Saliba's lack of experience in the EPL. If that is so he could have played him in gently or loaned him to an EPL side rather than packing him off to France. Either way, Saliba's figures do not suggest we need to spend £40m+ on a CB.

Quality players to go to CM, LB cover, RB, and possibly a striker if Laca/ Nketiah go. It's simple, but what do I know?

I agree Urban. I feed bad because I should be buzzing but I just don't get it. It makes very little sense in a summer with limited funds and other priority positions. Fans never know anything though mate 😂.

Why would you want to replace Rob Holding DG. As already said we had the 3rd best defence last year, and he was head and shoulders our best center half? So why replace him at all, and if you did want to ship one out, why not Gabriel, who consistently was our worse defender?

Is Arsenal really interested in Ben White this time round or is not just click bait, given we’re the most gullible fans out there?

Even if we should buy a CB I doubt it would even be half £40m.

Chelsea going for Achraf Hakimi and us on the other hand trying to manage with Chambers. The gulf in quality getting bigger and bigger.

{Ed077's Note - well Arsenal don't have the money to buy Hakimi I would assume. Also Hakimi hasn't signed for Chelsea just yet, let alone showed his World Class abilities...

 0 0 

10 Jun 2021 10:02:51
Chambers is good but not good enough, will get ripped apart at RB by any half decent winger, Cedric is a far better RB option especially if HB leaves and not replaced.

Apparently the club are considering Tyler Adams. But let's not fret too much about who Chelsea are looking at. They spend the GDP of a small Pacific nation every summer, and usually end up with half of them being dross. Let's focus on who Leicester are buying, they are doing what we used to do - but better.

I agree ED. This Hakimi fee is dumb. We need to focus on the spine with our budget.

{Ed077's Note - and probably a new manager😜😜

Don’t be silly Ed, it makes far more sense for a cash strapped side to rebuild itself around a manager who has a dozen games to keep his job.

{Ed077's Note - OK :-D

Hi Ed, have Xhaka agreed terms with Roma? If yes has Arsenal already have a replacement inline, discounting all the rumours, are we close to signing a replacement if that's their plan?

{Ed002's Note - Roma have made what I understand is a third offer for Xhaka which his agent's lawyer has suggested should be acceptable to Arsenal. I don't really understand the next bit of the question, but assuming it means "have Arsennal found a replacement, the answer is no but the club has options they are considering and a preferred option as has been explained.}

Thanks. Now just fishing for some concrete info among all the rumours. So, rather than vague questions could you provide an update, new info since you last reported on the below players?

Yves Bissouma
Noussair Mazraoui
Achraf Hakimi
André Onana
Edmond Tapsoba
Albert Sambi Lokonga
Tosin Adarabioyo
Nicolo Barella

Oh and is there any bonus/ surprise info you can give, something no one has asked about?

Appreciate it!

Bissouma is an option; Hakimi is too expensive; Onana we are pushing for a deal and not sure about the other players.

09 Jun 2021 22:25:27
Tapsoba isn ot happening. Tosin Adarabioyo, Nicolo Barella, not even sure where these came from.

09 Jun 2021 23:22:23
Tosin apparently has a 10m release clause or something. If true we had been liked with him. Also hearing we are looking at a young Brazilian rb named vanderson. Although must admit I've no idea on who he is or what he is like.

Well they’re players and the transfer market is open and we don’t know the club’s actual list of transfer targets. People tend to ask about a player base on what they have heard, read or if they like the player.

So EK is preparing another bid, 2 billion, if correct still not enough IMO. I think he has to be 2.5 billion and above to tempt the Americans.

You just tagged on half a billion like it's nothing. Do you realise what half a billion actually is.

Oh dear understand it in the context of the situation which you clearly don’t - to us it’s huge but the new offer won’t even raise an eyebrow on the Americans forehead . Yes to us it’s huge to a billionaire who has said “ we don’t need the money “ it’s nothing.

Quick google search says that Arsenal are valued roughly around $2.8bn so I imagine the owners would want more than that.

10 Jun 2021 08:09:19
That’s right fuser which is why the yanks would want something approaching 3 billion . EK is way off the mark.

It’s great to want someone who is passionate about your club being the owner but is he a realistic prospect? Spotify is only worth £3bn itself, so without another backer alongside EK I don’t see it as being realistic.

10 Jun 2021 21:16:37
LOL.
Spotify is worth $46bn.

It doesn't matter how rich or poor you are half a billion is a huge difference. I understand the original statement. Also $2.8 billion dollars is just under £2 billion pounds sterling as of this morning, if you can't grasp basic currency, don't band around fictitious figures.

They aren't going to sell at all. Arsenal fc makes them money. Its a fairy tale that is never going to happen.

Hello ed. is Arsenal still interested in signing max aarons? Have we made any contact with norwich?

{Ed002's Note - I would forget him for now. Max Aarons (RB) Everton remain very keen after Bayern Munich decided against a move as the cost is seen as too high and Roma has opted for another - Manchester United want him as cover only and that will likely price him out of a move at something like £30M. Expect to see other clubs become involved - perhaps Spurs if they can offload Serge Aurier or Arsenal if Bellerin leaves - and potentially others. The asking price will likely drive most potential buyers away.}

Hi Ed's,

With it being reported that we have interest in Neves and Bissouma, do you know if it's an either/ or situation, or is it possible we could sign both if we shift out our existing centre mids? Appreciate that is a vague question but would be good to get your take on it.

They seem like different types of player to me and we definitely need an overhaul in the middle of the pitch.

Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Won’t be signing both - there is also interest in Berge.}

 1 0 

08 Jun 2021 21:25:33
Obviously not saying we will sign both of them but with guendouzi xhaka leaving the club. Plus odegaards loan ending surely a minimum of 2 midfielders will come in. Also willock may well leave. Lot of work to be done.

08 Jun 2021 23:30:55
Ed, is both Bissouma and Berg a possibility or is it one from two

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - They have several options for what should be one spot with three leaving.}

I'd imagine we will see more of azeez next season. Out of interest Ed I'm not sure if it's something you'd know about but any idea which u23 players we're looking to promote into the first team next season to cover some of these exits instead of looking in the transfer market. I'm guessing balogun and azeez will be.

{Ed002's Note - I would need to ask I am afraid.}

09 Jun 2021 01:57:24
ED, have you heard anything regarding Willock? Will he be given a chance in the first team or.?

{Ed002's Note - My notes say:
Joe Willock (CM) Newcastle want loan to permanent. Arsenal would like to keep him but if they persist in looking to other options there will be no space for him and he will be squeezed out. He is now 21 and would count as part of the squad.}

Thanks Ed. If you ever find out would love to know but no worries if not.
