Having raised the possibility of signing Dunk from Brighton, I was shot down in flames from fellow Gooners who clearly didn't rate him. Reports have emerged that we are trying to sign him and I am certain he would be a decent acquisition for domestic matches, although at the top level of European football, he may well be found out.
However, on a cold, rainy night in November against the likes of Burnley, he may well be ideal. Think Adamas and Bould,

We aren't involved in top level European football so that wouldn't be a problem if there was any reality in this story RG.
The Europa league isn't top level European football it's for teams who don't make top level European football and most premier league players would handle it quite comfortably, look at the players we used last season in the Europa league who hardly featured in our premier league season because they weren't deemed ready.

Hi eds, tried to post this last week but it didn't seem to make the cut.

Given that we need Ozil gone before we can do any serious business, how likely is it that he could just choose to stay and **** up our plans entirely? Ignoring that he's a decent principled guy (given his charitable and humble nature) , how difficult is it for clubs to get rid of players they don't want?

Obviously players do what's right for them, he probably likes London and definitely likes his fat pay check. But from Arsenal's perspective, is there much that can actually be done or is the ball in his court?

{Ed001's Note - there is little chance of him going anywhere as there is little interest in him. That has been done to death recently.}

To be fair the club gave him the contract and contracts work both ways, Pogba can't simply walk out on United and Neymar can't just up and leave PSG no matter how much they would like too because they are contracted to their current clubs and it works the same vice versa
Clubs need to think before dishing contracts out and players need to think more carefully before signing them.

I have been told by a childhhod friend that is an agent in South America, that we may sign Martin Caceres from Free Agency. Not the best player in the world, but can cover RB and if needed Right CB, very tough as most uruguayan players. Currently doing a a decent job in the Copa America. Eds any truth to this?

{Ed002's Note - None whatsoever.}

Loool that’s so funny.

Interesting reports we are after Tierney. If so, when fit we would have a first choice back four of:
Bellerin Sokratis Holding Tierney
With cover of:
Maitland-Niles Mustafi Mavrapanos Kolasinac

I would imagine we would sell Monreal.

Reports that we have managed to sell Ospina to Napoli and have interest in Jenkinson, which is positive as we tidy up the squad and end the policy of loaning our players who are in reality not wanted at the club.

Assuming we get Tierney I can see us signing a box to box midfielder and a winger, possibly a forward if Nketiah goes out on loan. If the reported budget is true these players will be relatively low cost. Any more signings will presumably depend on raising funds from sales. With the promotion of Freddie I imagine young talent such as Willock, Nelson, etc playing a bigger part next season.

Tierney would be a great signing and imo, I would like to see Saliba or Anderson in that back 4. We can't go through next season without a new CB that's for sure, especially if the rumoured exit of Kos to Dortmund ends up happening. Both Saliba and Andersen are tall, strong and good passers of the ball as well as being confident in possession. Very similar traits to Bielik too.

Hi Ed,

Can you confirm if we have lost interest in and moved on from Andersen and Praet, as reports seem to suggest?

There's supposed to be an announcement on the signing of Gabriel Martinelli tomorrow, on his 18th birthday.

The following players will leave this summer:
Cech
Lichsteiner
Ramsey
Suarez
Welbeck
The following players are likely to leave:
Jenkinson
Chambers
The following are possibly leaving if buyers can be found:
Mustafi
Mkhitaryan
Elneny
Ozil
The following players will not be fit to start the season:
Bellerin
Holding

With so many experienced first team players moving or possibly moving on does it make sense on a reported limited budget to purchase 18 year olds Martinelli and Saliba?

Ed's very quick question-Do teams ever actually come to personal terms with players before agreeing a transfer fee with the selling club or is that just more click-bait from the tabloids?

{Ed002's Note - Certainly with agents.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Totally un-arsenal related, but how did Qatar end up in the copa 'america'? xD.

{Ed002's Note - Guests.}

Reports that Torreira is unhappy in England and wants to return to Italy. Suggestions that he could be swopped for Franck Kessie and I wanted to know what fellow gooners think of this potential swap?

Agree0 Disagree0

Paper talk mate, this is a nothing story that has been twisted and invented by a journalist and is being fed off and run with by other journalists.
Torreira will be at Arsenal next season in my opinion and the rest is all summer hit seeking simply because there is so little real stuff to report.
Most players are on holiday with their families eating and drinking and doing whatever they want which is something they can't do for 10 months of the year so I doubt too many are waiting they're precious free time talking to journalists.
