Any whispers about that Marc Roja fellow anyone? Linked to Bayern earlier, Milan + others these days. Now that Espanyol are relegated, surely he would leave? He would be an upgrade for sure.

A few talented players available for free, like Kouassi, Sarr, Aouchiche. And players like Gabriel, Szoboszlai, Aouar on the market for a fair fee. Would be sad seeing all the big talents snapped up by other clubs because our wage bill is so ridiculous.

Greetings Ed's, hope everyone reading this is doing well in these unprecedented times.

With KSE now buying out Arsenal's Stadium Debts, does it mean it is only for easing some financial pressure in the short term? Also, does it make KSE more powerful than they already are considering Arsenal now owe money to them, which as I understood was not the case a few years ago under the "you spend what you earn" model.

Forgive me if I'm naive here but How does it change the financial conditions of the club? Is it by and large still under a huge problem or you see things easing because of this move coupled with a few profitable sales in the summer transfer window. Would love your two cents on this Eds. Also what do the other guys think about this?


{Ed002's Note - It is a loan that defers payments that are due on the stadium so it gives relief as the club is in financial problems as you know. It means that payments that are due now and outstanding in the future will be owed to someone else and not immediately due - but they will still need to be paid at some point.}

A bit like Britain's wartime debts that were paid off over 60 years allowing lots of breathing space for investment and potential growth and prosperity through the years apoosed to David Cameron austerity approach that achieved nothing but pain and longterm problems. Sounds like happy news to me.

{Ed001's Note - except that they were never paid and merely increased over time. That is why the UK is in such huge debt now mate. Debt is never a good thing, no matter how it is structured.}

Very true Ed001 mate, being in the black is always preferably to being in the red but sometimes deferring the payments on debts in order to make yourself competitive is a far better choice than selling your van tools and house to be debt free with no means of income or anywhere to sleep, it's what you do about the debts when your flush again that makes the difference, if you spend spend spend and don't pay off then it's going to bite you on the bum at some stage.
Every single thing the Cameron touched turned to misery, he invented food banks ran down and under funded public services and brought short and long term misery to so many only to leave the country in more debt than when he took over. It isn't always how much you spend but what you spend on that matters. cutting your suit according to your cloth doesn't mean you have to wear rags but I wouldn't advise borrowing the money to buy really expensive cloth in the hope it will turn you into a George Clooney look a alike either ;-)

{Ed001's Note - I do agree with you G62, just saying you aren't suddenly going to be flush with cash, Arsenal still have to be careful.}

Totally Ed001 mate, we've managed our finances absolutely shockingly in the past paying out sentimental wages and extortionatly high wages to very very average players who had never achieved anything to warrant 100k + per week.
It's no good Just spending and hoping it comes good as untied have proved, one of the things I admire so much about Klopp is he turned things around while balancing the books and laid excellent foundations for the club to be able to invest big with confidence rather a hit and hope mentality or fan pacification.
It's all about being sensible in my opinion.

{Ed001's Note - especially now.}

Evening Eds,
Various reports claiming that Juventus and Atletico are both interested in signing Lacazette and that players could be used in a potential swap. Do you what players Juve could be potentially interested in using as part of a deal? As far as Atletico are concerned I would only really want Partey to be honest.
Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I have addressed Atletico’s interest before but he is not first choice. I would not expect anything with Juve, he is well down their list.}

Saw the Express and Graham Hunter talking about us trying to sign Partey (likely) plus Luka Jovic and Dayot Upamecano.

Talk about addressing our weaknesses.

I'd be happy if we didn't sign Jovic but rather spent the money in CM as the above sorts the defence out. I'd still be happy if Laca moves on to facilitate one of the above transfers.

Lacca is class we need to keep both pea and lacca.

ED, as always a lot can change. So this is just a light question, would Arteta look to sign both Ceballos and Partrey or is he interested in adding just one midfielder as it stands?

{Ed002's Note - The transfers are unrelated as they play in different positions. A DM is wanted to replace players who are available and Arsenal had a firm taget they lost out on but Partey is an expensive option for a club in a financial mess. Real Madrid want cash for Ceballos and it is unclear if the player would change his mind and stay on - much will depend on another club.}

I think Ceballos will choose the highest level option on offer to him this summer. The lad seems very football ambitious rather than money or easy opinion driven, shame because we really need players with that ambitious mentality at Arsenal.

{Ed002's Note - Dani Ceballos (CM) agent is investigating other options as the player is edging away from signing for Arsenal. It is about direction, opportunity and the future. The idea is he gets another loan, gets to the Euros, gets to talk options with Real Madrid and the decides on a practical way forward - perhaps with a more progressive side. Loan to Milan, Real Betis or Valencia might give a short-term solution.}

Sounds like he's looking for the best possible shop window in which to prove himself to top clubs in Ed002 mate, can't blame the lad for that. Just a shame we're not currently best placed to offer him that but the good news might be that his moving on free's up a place for someone else who does fancy a future with Arsenal.

Hi Eds was wondering if the club now have Ceballos in their long term plans. His quality is there when healthy and Arteta seems to value what he brings to the side.

{Ed002's Note - Dani Ceballos (CM) agent is investigating other options as the player is edging away from signing for Arsenal who would like to keep him. It is about direction, opportunity and the future. The idea is he gets another loan, gets to the Euros, gets to talk options with Real Madrid and the decides on a practical way forward - perhaps with a progressive side like Real Betis. Else he needs to look to stay at Arsenal on loan perhaps as money is a major issue.}

Hi Ed do arsenal hold an interest in Dominik Szoboszlai?

{Ed002's Note - Dominik Szoboszlai (LM/CM) Ralf Rangnick will look to take him to Milan but RBS will not be happy, Milan has serious financial issues and the club may not be as keen as the new coach who will be given a budget using funds from pre-agreed sales and will have to generate the rest through further sales - so it is a case of prioritising. Szoboszlai is the first choice Sergej Milinkovic-Savic replacement for Lazio since the summer of 2019. Lazio have informed RBS of their interest and at the right price RBS could take the money. Inter have spoken with RBS but have other priorities and will step away. Juventus interest dates back before Sarri took over as coach and Arsenal interest was from a scout the club fired and a previous coach. Chelsea were interested when he was younger but could not offer him regular game time now. The likes of Dortmund and Fiorentina have scouted him but it has gone no further just yet.}

Thank you Ed, I’m not sure if anyone has asked but why did we buy Cedric? Was he a replacement for Bellerin or Maitlan-Niles?

{Ed002's Note - I don't know. Hector Bellerin (RB) Sevilla are looking for support and eventual replacement of the aging Jesus Navas and Bellerin is their first choice.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles (RB/RM/DM) may be dependent on whether Arsenal take up their option on Cedric Soares - it would be a kick in the gonads for the kid and he may have to think about other options. The complexity is that he wants to play CM but the club do not see him as good enough to play there.

Thanks ed. Cedric might be a good purchase and more of a replacement for Bellerin it seems but I may be wrong.

{Ed002's Note - I am not convinced.}

Great news about Saka extending his deal.

"It's Arsenal, you know. Come on, it's Arsenal! " He said. "The stadium is great, the fans are great, the club is great. Everything about this club is great. "

How many shirts will we see with his name on next year. COYG.

Any truth about us having an interest in Reims defender Axel Disasi,

{Ed002's Note - Try searching.}
