Hi Eds, is there any truth to a rumour regarding Santi joining us again?

{Ed002's Note - Obviously not as a player but he has given a couple of interviews saying he would like to play one more game for the club - so perhaps a friendly might work.}

Hey ed, is it true that Arsenal have interest in Jonathan Tah from Leverkusen?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach from Arsenal.}

Has anyone heard of this rumour that Guendozi had a row with the coaching staff and Arteta on the Dubai break? I notice he wasn't in the squad for Sunday's game, so that might back the rumour. To be honest, based on his recent performances, combined with Ceballos performance on Sunday, he is sadly not missed. He is another Arsenal youngster who is in danger of having his career go backwards. His performances certainly have.

That appears to be the case Epping but I think you're being hard on him. He's only 20 and the occasional bust-up is nothing special. I think there was a culture of entitlement that Emery fostered among many of the players so I'm glad to see Arteta challenging that ethos.

I think most youngsters do have a rough patch, it's normal, maybe a spell on the sidelines will help him, he can be quite rash and his positioning is questionable.

Dropping could mean he has a boot up his arse, tries more in training and his performance goes up when he does win his spot back, worst case? He gets pi*sed off and leaves, we would move on quite fast.

Hi Ed's

What's the situation with Saka contract talk and is Arsenal actually looking at Samuel Chukwueze? Excuse me if you have already discussed this.

Didn't anyone fancy the winter break? I must say it was good to tune out for awhile or maybe it's because of where we are in the table why I welcomed it 😁?

{Ed002's Note - Certainly Samuel Chukwueze was considered by Arsenal - but they blew their funds the didn't have on Pepe who plays in the same position.}

There is no agreement with Saka who may be knows of the interest of Bayern Munich.}

Thanks Ed if that’s the case can you or do you know what is the club’s option for his position? I see it as his as there’s no better player at the moment. Auba plays there but it’s not is natural position and he’s not the future.

A lot of people are liking Saka so it’s a big call for the club if they choose to let him loose.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Arsenal looking at a Saka replacement at this time.}

Any truth in Arteta considering moving Tieney on ED?

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware nut there will be interest from Leicester if Chilwell were to leave.}

We are being linked to Pape Gueye, 6m rated DM from Le Havre. Ed is there any truth to this one?

Thanks a lot!

{Ed002's Note - Pape Gueye (DM) A Le Havre player who is attacting the interest of Arsenal and Udinese - and Sevilla have watched the player. Would be economically a bargain if Xhaka were to get his move to HB.}

Sounds good to me, 15 to 20 million in 6 million out the sort of deals we could do with right now.

Does Xhaka still want the move?

{Ed002's Note - Obviously the fans have given him a torrid time and he wanted to join Hertha Berlin in January but that was not possible, there is every chance he still wants to move on - hence the club are pushing for a replacement.}

Rumours that we are after Nathan Ake in the summer. An excellent player, hope it's true and we sign him.

Spurs are linked with him too and if it comes to the highest bidder I'm pretty sure Jose will be urging Levy to do what it takes to get him.

I read a report that Arteta intends overhauling the squad, which clearly makes complete sense, as the current squad has failed over the past few seasons, including the latter seasons under Wenger.

Apparently this includes selling Aubameyang, Lacazette and Ozil. Much as I like PEA, he turns 31 this summer and only has a year left on his deal, so cashing in makes financial sense.

Goalkeepers: We have 2 decent keepers.

FB's: We now finally have 4 decent full backs, plus AMN and Saka, that can fill in.

CB's: Reinforcements are clearly needed. Saliba arrives, but he is very young. Luiz is ageing, plus only has a year left. If Holding rediscovers his form after his injury, he should stay. We have to see if Mari is good enough. It's time to move on Sokratis and Mustafi.

DM's: Torreira, Xhaka and Guendouzi are decent, perhaps one more youngster.

Very short of attacking midfield players of quality.

Forwards:, Martinelli is the future and perhaps Nketiah. PEA, already commented. Lacazette will have a couple of seasons left and is currently off form. Probably time to cash in. Need to sign one top quality goal scorer and perhaps another youngster with potential.

I just read another report that indicated Arteta wants another CB, a box to box midfield player and a much needed creative midfield player.

The club want these deals concluded early in the window, before the Euro Finals, after-which prices may rise for quality players.

I appreciate that these are only reports and could be nonsense, but much of their contents make sense.

Rambo as the B2B midfielder - played right he could be our solution and his work rate is spot on, Mikel will stop the flicks plus he has epl experience. Brucie Bonus - he can score unlike the rest of our midfield.

That could be a midfield 3 of

Granit - Torriera with Rambo Judy in front of them instead of Ozil

That’s a pretty good midfield - put Matteo on loan or on the bench as he’s not good enough or consistent enough yet.

Hi Ed, it sounds like Arsenal turned down the chance to sell Mesut Ozil despite Mikel backing the move.?

Is that true?

Why didn't it happen and why did they bid at the last minute.


{Ed002's Note - I don't know whether or not MA supported the move but Al Sadd's interest was very late in the day and that likely proved to be the issue. The proposed loan to another side was tentatively agrred before the window opened but also failed for onr reason or another. Arsenal really want him sold and not loaned. They will look to move him on in the summer.}

Thanks Ed - frustrating an 11th hour offer comes in for a player we need to shift and we can’t close it out. If he’s not in the long term plans, don’t get why we didn’t cash in or why They waited so late to bid for MO10. Sounds like Lemar was an option for us. never mind at least we signed an injured left back and an unproven CD 😂😂

Quality window 😫.

Or according to other outlets Artetta put a block to the move.
It's a shame we didn't break the bank in January and sign 3 or 4 household names at extortionate pilrices that could have helped us achieve 8th place this season:-) .
I suppose we will just have to settle for 10th place and use this season for Arteta to find out who he can and can't take forward into next season and beyond.
