Ed02 are we interested in Everton Soares? Lots of media say we've agreed a fee for him but I won't believe it until I here it from you. Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - There is some interest but there are those at the club urging a move for Malcom as a far better option.}

Soares appears to be a quality player. What concerns me about Malcom is that he opted to join Barcelona and hasn't made it there, yet Barcelona reportedly want to make a profit on any sale. If the 60 milliion reported is correct. I would still like to see us sign Saha, as he is an experienced PL player, with virtually no risk of fitting in. The problem clearly is Palace's absurd 80 million requirement for a player worth 40 million, even in today's inflated market.
Another problem is that we have some amazing young wide players coming through and by signing a wide player it stunts their progress. Nelson will turn 20 in December and had a decent loan spell. Saka, from what I understand is rated extemely highly at the club, as is Smith-Rowe. I like the look of John-Jules as well and of course we have recently signed Martinelli who scored on his debut against Colorado.

Malcom isn’t the player for us.

so is it safe to assume that the zaha is no longer an option?

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal have Zaha as their first choice - if they were to sell players to raise funds they could negotiate from a position of some strength.}

Correct me if I'm wrong ed. But don't Zaha and malcolm play on different wings. Ideally anyway.

{Ed002's Note - No, ideally they both play on the right.}

Malcolm was quality at bordeaux, I'd take him over Soares.

Ah right I'm clearly wrong then thanks for clearing that up. For me i'd like Zaha but the fee seems a bit silly money.

So ed if I can assume.

With the likes of Tierney, martinelli, saliba, ceballos and zaha/ malcolm/ soares being the ones we are interested/ hoping at bringing on. safe to assume those are our only targets and no other surprises per se?

Only asking as With the announcement from Josh Kroenke felt like neymar, messi, Ronaldo, hazard and Salah were signing on. just don't want to get my Hope's up and pre order my jerseys.

{Ed002's Note - I explained about targets - don't get me to buy into any bizarre assumptions you have.}
