It could well be a big clear out and busy summer coming up for Arsenal.

Willock, Maitland-Niles and Bellerin look set to leave. I reckon Eddie and Lacazette will also leave so a striker will need to be signed with Balogun getting game time next season to.
Those 5 transfer fees alone will be a decent amount towards new signings.

Ceballos and Odegaard's loans come to an end and I don't think either player will be signed permanently. Madrid will ask too much for MO and Dani doesn't cut the mustard so to speak.

I don't see us renewing Luiz's contract either so hopefully this is the time for Saliba to be in the fold with Holding, Mari and Gabriel.

Without anyone else exiting the club, that already leaves us needing to sign 2 midfielders and a striker, as well as the LB we know we already need to cover KT.

8 players out, 3 players in and a lot more business needed after that too in my opinion.

Thoughts everyone?

So how does Willock suddenly produce the goods at Newcastle, he’s scored 5 goals, more than Eddie, Saka, Martinelli and Smith Rowe.

Anyone shown interest in Saka? I feel this kid is even better than Foden - I'm surprised not to read much about clubs going in for him.

Cheers!

He just signed a new long term contract. I can imagine the price would put people off, must be demanding at least €80m.

He’s not better than Foden . yet! I think you have rose tinted glasses, that’s not to say he won’t be as good or better but at the moment he’s not as good

If he wants to be that good, he needs to be in a better team.

{Ed014's Note - I read Garth Crooks saying that! 🤦‍♂️

It would be nice to think he’d stay and turn us into a better team under a better manager.

The problem at Arsenal is there is just so much that needs to change right now, yes Arteta needs go but so do either the owners or at the very least the way they do things.

No yes man manager will turn Arsenal around only someone with his own ideas and the integrity to stand by his own principles both professionally and personally.

Until the Krankee's either accept someone like this or sell its difficult to see how things will improve and if I was Saka of any other player with ambition I'd be thinking about my futur.

So Leno decision look strange but what about reinvesting in scouting!

Are we such a mess we can't make decisions.

Is it true we are adding scouts again?

All this says to me is that the club badly screwed up last summer and are still digging themselves out of it. What a mess.

I think the Arteta criticism re. Leno is a bit off. Although I agree Martinez was undroppable after his stint, I'm sure there would have been significant input from the goalkeeper coach/ es.

Well Martinez kept 17 clean sheets this season ( so far ) so someone at Arsenal got it VERY wrong didn’t they?

If only the Martinez mistake was our biggest problem!

Yes it was a mistake but given how much is wrong at the club it was far from a crucial mistake.

Slightly disagree mate, I played in a back four at a good level if you have a keeper that doesn’t fill you with confidence it makes you vulnerable and disorganised. The spine of the team is crucial to the strength of the XI on field . Leno has been appalling end of .

His ball distribution, he doesn’t dominate in the box, he punches the majority of the time . Matt Ryan caught more balls in 90 minutes than Leno had the previous 10 games.

Leno has undoubtedly had a poor season mate and i am not looking ti excuse his form but equally he's never had a settled CB paring or even FB pairing to work with and build any kind of understanding with.

Partey and Gabriel have struggled too but in a settled side they would stand more chance of adapting to premier league life and into a new club.

Chopping and changing doesn't help you build anything.

I must admit I get nervous these days when Leno's goal is threatened. His confidence seems to have dipped since the injury and he seems more hesitant somehow.

Yep fair point 62, agree with that also.

Blimey, I'm reading Leno is up for sale!

No surprise there. Club has made lots of bad decisions over the last decade and retaining Leno over Martinez is one of them. And I won't be surprised if he himself is pushing for a move.

There will be quite a few up for sale I suspect. Selling them, however, might prove a bit difficult in the current climate. Our (Arteta's) wish list for players is already in trouble if we cannot shift any players.

Good.
He is bang average.
Not poor, not to blame for this season, just bang average.
It’s not Leno’s fault he isn’t Martinez or that he was restored to the first team when Martinez had replaced him - brilliantly - when he’d been injured. That was the buffoon Arteta’s doing.
Be we need shot of players like Leno: there are about fourteen others in the current first team squad or out on loan who should go to.

Don’t forget Max we had to fund the transfer of TP selling Martinez was our answer.

Martinez is no better or worse than Leno. If we’d sold Leno we would still have let in just as many goals and everyone would have been annoyed that we chose the wrong keeper. Both are average/ just above average. Wish people would stop saying Martinez is some kind of saviour - he isn’t.

Who care, before the move none of us thought it was a realistic ting anyway, the oracle said so himself, I'd chuck in Welsh gunner, hopefully he's got a head piece in and no, not stockley park, apparently he's in cahoots with the gk Kirman at Swansea, he's normally wrong about everything, but let's hope he's drilling that farm dweller hard.

Bruce sssh fella and yes we were interested in woodman, but he didn’t fancy the move as he’s swans number 1, and I’m mates with the kit man so sort your pathetic life out it’s people like you that stop the Ed’s from giving us info.
