Agreement found for St Etienne's William Saliba. A fee of €30M that will be paid in 3 installments. €10.75M will be paid next year when he joins and the rest paid for over the next two seasons meaning it won't come out of this window's budget.

We need to get some players in. even on two year contracts if possible. but hopefully we sell mustafi, Mikhi, and ozil, and never touch another mino raiola player again. the man is genuine scum.

2.) 08 Jul 2019 21:32:21
Can't help but think back 3 summers and wonder if given the choice back then between Mustafi and Ben Mee which one the majority of Arsenal fans would have wanted, the German international CB or the newly promoted from the championship Burnley CB, I know which one we'd all chose now.
Back in 2013 Mesut Ozil or Christian Ericsson?

It does make you think what happens to these players once they join Arsenal.

It makes you think it’s easy to pick players from 3 years ago when you’ve seen their performance to now.

We were linked with Chris Smalling once. How you feeling about that one?

4.) 09 Jul 2019 00:04:43
Erikssen might well be a very good player, however he has won jack squat, and i do not think ozil is bad, he just does not have the right pieces around him. he is not a top 3 option. but you get the player that can run and create space and give him that option to create and it works. however with the way football is now, all 11 players commit on both ends. his days are numbered, along with any player who does not put in 100% every game.

5.) 09 Jul 2019 08:00:20
I think Ozil is a fantastic player Larker but we've only ever seen shades of his true outstanding quality, Ericsson is linked with Barcelona while no one anywhere wants Mesut and that is absolutely ridiculous because on pure abilty Ozil is in a different league to Ericsson but when you look at what Spurs have got out of Ericsson compared to how things have worked our between us and Mesut something is wrong somewhere.
Xhaka Mustafi Ozil 100 million + and are now worth?

6.) 09 Jul 2019 09:43:34
Be careful what you wish for 5kywalker, with our current budget, we might be in for Chris Smalling once again. Chris Smalling, but years later and older/ slower. How you feel about that one :)

7.) 09 Jul 2019 09:53:26
If this is true, it’s not bad business. Curious to get a player like Boateng, in the interim.

Fernerbahce are proposing a €8M loan fee for two years regarding Mustafi. They can then sign him on a free.

Joseph Citizen

1.) 30 Jun 2019 17:41:08
Fenerbahce have financial problems and are struggling to stay within the FFP rules so this rumour looks well wide of the mark.
Mesuts Turkish family origins will always see him linked with moves to Turkey but in reality few clubs anywhere could afford his wages let alone a fee of any kind as well.

2.) 30 Jun 2019 19:32:34
He said Mustafi.

3.) 30 Jun 2019 19:59:42
That’s how we sell a Mustafi - tell them they get Mesut for 20m but deliver Mustafi!

4.) 30 Jun 2019 20:03:03
Oh sorry Joseph I do apologise mate totally misread your post mate, sorry, thanks for pointing it out Skywalker, oops should have gone to specsavers rather than poundland.

5.) 30 Jun 2019 20:34:01
Someone wants Mustafi?

You got yourself a deal. Pay whatever you want just get him out.



21 May 2019 18:57:40
Arsenal are in contact with eric dos santos rodriguez of bahia in Brazil. Contacts ongoing over a €10M deal.

Joseph Citizen

Ryan Fraser contacts are ongoing. Bournemouth want around £16M to sell. The response is positive on both sides.

Nketiah is going out on loan to augsburg.

iwobi heading to everton for £40M. Raul is the real deal.

Joseph Citizen



03 Aug 2019 10:08:21
I remember one time Arsenal spent £48M on a striker. 6 months later, spent £57M on another striker. I wouldn't put past them to sign Coutinho lol.

In hindsight, what we have changed in the front office is the use of super agents to close deals. Mislintat was against this and believed in his data analytics. i don't know what will happen but I have to say that I think we should of mixed the two strategies.

Joseph Citizen

1.) 02 Aug 2019 22:14:43
Time will tell, Sven did a fantastic job for us in his short spell let's hope this summers signings go every bit as well as his singing last summer.

2.) 03 Aug 2019 07:22:40
Mislintat did a decent job, but the subsequent signings prove he is replaceable.
Last season: Guendouzi, Leno, Torreira and Sokratis
This season: Pepe, Ceballos, Saliba (for 2020-2021) , possibly Tierney and a CB.
In addition we have raised £20m so far in sales and a sell on fee.
We still need to sell: Jenkinson, Elneny, Koscielny, Mustafi and Chambers.
In respect of sales the window is open longer overseas.

3.) 03 Aug 2019 11:43:04
Signing players is only half the battle what they do in an Arsenal shirt is the other most important half
Svens signings delivered. Let's hope the our new post Sven signings deliver equally well as Torreira Guendouzi Papa and Leno have.
If the class of 2019 signings do as well as the class of 2018 we should see a big improvement.



29 Apr 2019 18:17:11
what has made this season to be awful is injuries. Danny Welbeck should be shipped out, ozil, Ramsey is always injured when the team needs him. We need to recruit young players who have high levels of energy and not prone to injuries. Just imagine next season when the transfer team unveils a £40M new center back and he gets injured on the first day of the season and we're back to square one.

Joseph Citizen

1.) 29 Apr 2019 19:45:54
We've been 3 players away and a bit more luck with injuries away for years.
I think every set of fans only notice their own clubs injury list and discount other clubs almost instantly.



30 Jan 2019 11:22:35
With an 'option to buy' clause, when a club decides to exercise that option do they pay the fee upfront or can it be paid in installments?

As i had said, i'd be very surprised if his 2 year contract will be extended. he is just a transition manager and not a long term manager. his job is to get us back to the ucl in 2 years and then he's gone after that but be careful what you wish for coz Arteta may come in and just mess it up all over again.

The 3 at the back is killing us. We're playing 3 centre backs and all of them don't want to tackle. I'm not in any way panicking but I don't think Emery's 2 year contract will be extended.

Type I saw somewhere that he had a signed a pre-contract with Benfica in anticipation of being released from his contract. I don't know how true that is.
