Good Morning Ed,

Reports yesterday suggesting that Arsenal could make a move for Pavard.

Do you know if this is a player that we hold an interest in please?

Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - Benjamin Pavard (CB/RB) Chelsea see Pavard as a direct replacement for Cesar Azpilicueta but with a RB already purchased for the summer they have another priority. The interest of Manchester United will likely not be of interest to the player who won't want to be in playing exclusively as a RB - and I am not sure they can fix that but they have been trying to sell the club to him. Inter failed with an offer in January but will return in the summer but are having to be careful over funds - they may however be the most attractive solution. Milan have had ongoing interest but can likely now be discounted. Manchester City interest has gone. If Liverpool are seriously interested I can only assume it is via the new Sporting Director, and right now they are not involved in any discussions with Bayern Munich. A wildcard option might be Juventus - don't lose sight of them. Bayern are open to a new contract and Thomas Tuchel will not want to be looking for a replacement. For now, expect a new contract to now be rejected and clubs to continue negotiations with perhaps Inter looking best placed to complete a deal.

Arsenal have been lookiing for a RB but Pavard would make sense - but I am not aware of any approach.}

Thank you Ed, greatly appreciated!

Hi eds are we interested in callus Hudson odoi.

{Ed002's Note - A while ago but it may well have gone.}

Agree0 Disagree2

Read an article an un named prem club are speaking with him thought it might of been us as cover for saka.

17 Aug 2023 13:58:52
Think it is Fulham.

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

16 Aug 2023 09:13:26
With Timber out for a spell are we looking for another left back? And are we interested in Douglas Luiz? Is Gabriel Maghalhaes looking to move to Saudi Arabia? Any reason why he wants to leave, he was one of the pillars of the defence? And if he is allowed to go his replacement?
Thanks as usual, and sorry for so many questions .

{Ed002's Note - Have you read the posts.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Aug 2023 04:46:33
Didn't come across anything, but if I have missed it sorry to have bothered you . But Thanks again .

{Ed002's Note - Did you search on Gabriel?

17 Aug 2023 13:09:03
Gabriel I did, but there was nothing on Timber or Douglas Luiz, please don't think me argumentative and thanks for patiently answering me and others.

15 Aug 2023 09:04:11
Lots of chatter about a Saudi club coming after Gabriel. That would upset the apple cart!

Agree2 Disagree0

Hi sally

Edoo2 has this story got any truth to it?

{Ed002's Note - Gabriel Magalhaes (CB) Arsenal have rejected an approach from Juventus. PSG may make an approach. An offer from Saudi Arabia is likely with two members of the League assisting Al-Ettifaq. There could be interest from elsewhere in the Middle East. Finding a suitable replacement may be difficult but they had identified targets they could revisit.}

15 Aug 2023 11:56:26
I can't see it. Probably entirely because he was left out against Forest rather than any real substance to us being willing to sell.

16 Aug 2023 17:40:00
It would be a shame as it seems he as he has a great rapport with Saliba.

16 Aug 2023 19:01:50
That post sounds like my record got stuck lol.

13 Aug 2023 20:40:58
Hi Ed002, Are we interested in Barella?

{Ed002's Note - Nicolo Barella (CM) Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid have had approaches turned away. Don't be surprised of a significant offer from Newcastle or PSG or a further approach from Real Madrid - but Inter don't wish to sell and would no doubt demand something towards €100M or so. Liverpool or Spurs may show an interest but Inter have not been approached by either although they have sent scouts. The player does not wish to leave and is expected to sign a new contract. Long term interest of Chelsea went with the player wanting to stay in Italy - although they could yet try to persuade him otherwise and have spoken with Ale Beltrami who acts as an intermediary. Beltrami has also poken with Manchester City. Wildcard may be an approach form Manchester United who have instructed a third party to enquire on their behalf. Arsenal may look to Barella but would need Partey to depart and perhaps offer balogun as part of the deal - seems unlikely. Newcastle seem a less likely solution. }

Any one heard of these links with barella of inter swap deal balogan and Tommy staight swap?

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Aug 2023 18:08:18
That would be an unbelievable piece of business and, if Edu can arrange it, would be up there with his best .

11 Aug 2023 18:47:28
Did hear that we were interested in him, and read that the press have seen that because they’ve shown an interest in Balogun and Tommy I think they’ve decided that’s a deal 🤷‍♂️, I’m not quite sure these “ swap” deals ever work as each individual player has a separate contract etc…. And of course all parties have to agree. I for one would be happy if there were any truth as both our boys unfortunately seem surplus to requirements.

14 Aug 2023 08:59:25
Balogun and Tomi won't add to 100 M which is what Ed002 says Inter wants for him .

09 Aug 2023 22:32:14
Raya deal is a 3m loan with an option to buy for 27m reports are saying.

Agree2 Disagree0

10 Aug 2023 03:36:51
If raya is entering his last year of contract, does this loan deal even make sense when you could possibly just go after him for free next summer?

10 Aug 2023 06:58:22
They have extended his contract by an extra year in case Arsenaldo not but.

10 Aug 2023 07:28:44
They extended his contract by a year so even if we don’t buy they won’t lose out and could still get a few for him after the loan deal.

02 Aug 2023 08:59:21
Hi ed002, heard anything about us and Kvaratskhelia? Can't see it happening but there's rumours. Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Khvicha Kvaratskhelia (LW) In late 2021 Torino, Borussia Dortmund and Lokomotiv Moscow were speaking with Rubin Kazan who said they were not willing to sell at that time. Previously the player had been watched by Bayern Munich and his agent had been hawking him around the Premier League clubs including Everton with, according to him, Leeds showing some interest. Ancelotti had been open to the idea of replacing Bolasie and Bernard with him but it was clear something was going on in the background. Remarkably he was sold to Georgian side Dinamo Batumi for a small amount of money but well beyond their means in March 2022. For 3 months Napoli and Juventus discussed a deal with his agent and on July 1, 2022 he moved to Napoli, giving a small profit to Dinamo Batumi. A move to Spain with Real Sociedad was ruled out. Paratici had originally identified him for Juventus and it is was surprise Spurs did not follow up. Roma waited too long to be a viable option. The transfers are potentially going to be looked at by UEFA. Don't rule out Real Madrid, Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea or Manchester City looking at taking the player in a year or two and he has also attracted scouts from Liverpool and Juventus. Newcastle have a declared interest but a move seems unlikely. Napoli have no intention of selling and will offer a new contract - which I expect to be initially rejected.}

Thank you ed002! Have a great weekend mate.

30 Jul 2023 19:42:24
Hi Ed002 hope you`re well. Are Arsenal interested in Raya from Brentford? At reported £40mill seems a lot when we need it spent elsewhere. Thanks for any insight in advance COYG.

{Ed002's Note - David Raya (G) Not first choice, but a good option for Manchester United. Chelsea should not be discounted. Won't sign a new contract. Spurs stepped back due to the price. Arsenal offer an option but are looking to a cheap deal and may offer up a player in exchange. Brentford will likely get an offer from Bayern Munich which suits the player but will lokk tonegotiate the price up a little.}

Strange one for me. I guess Turner is viewed as sub-CL quality.

{Ed001's Note - Turner wants to be a starter.}

31 Jul 2023 03:32:26
Fair enough Ed001, as well he should. I just don't see how Raya or Ramsdale would be any different.

{Ed001's Note - well Ramsdale is playing so that is a huge difference. Turner needs to play for his international place. Raya would be an odd one though, unless Arteta sees him as a Ramsdale replacement, I fail to see why he would want to move to Arsenal. He would lose any chance of international footie if he couldn't displace Ramsdale.}

31 Jul 2023 10:50:51
Surely the role of number 2 keeper is for an up and coming young keeper or a past their best experienced keeper. It's such a specialised position where no matter how brilliant both keepers might be there is no formation or system within the game that can accommodate both at the same time.

The absolute worse case scenario would be taking it in turns to play as with Peter Shilton and Ray Clemence for England under Ron Greenwood.

01 Aug 2023 20:59:05
Ramsdales form and a personal issue has disappointed coaches. Looking to replace with long term target Raya.

02 Aug 2023 00:13:13
That's a hell of a call Sammy, based on evidence I assume?

04 Aug 2023 10:38:27
Raya is an upgrade, plain and simple Arsenal are acting like a top club now. They will both stay for a year and then Ramsdale will be sold to an Everton or Villa type team next summer, assuming Raya isn't a complete flop.

30 Jul 2023 19:58:00
We are interested in David Raya from Brentford according to SSN.

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Jul 2023 20:49:47
That would arguably be the biggest statement of the lot! Upgrading a position we didn't really need to. 2 30+ mil keepers fighting for number 1, can't see them both being happy though! 😂.

30 Jul 2023 07:42:18
I see Liverpool are link with a loan for mbappe any chance us getting him on loan or would it be too expensive.

{Ed025's Note - i cant see him going anywhere bar madrid Stephen..

Agree1 Disagree5
