Evening Eds, I read a report today which had me nervous it stated Juve are on the verge of accepting a mammoth bid for Paul Pogba it goes into a lot of detail mentioning the club involved also mentioning that Dybala could be on his way out if an agreement over playing time with that club can be agreed! With this it goes on to say that Juve are close to agreeing deals with Lyon and Arsenal, It goes on even saying Juve are satisfied a deal with us can be agreed due to the player being very open to the idea to a Turin.

Do you know if there is any truth to this or is it to early to say? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I am aware of what is happening with Pogba but not aware of anything directly related to AFC. The clubs involved about Pogba are not going to be thinking about any deals that may subsequently happen any more than AZ would care about a replacement for Myron Boadu if there was a bid from Arsenal.}

Hi ed; do arsenal have an interest in sofiane boufal? If so have they made any sort of contact or enquiry about his availibility with his club?

{Ed002's Note - Although Sofiane Boufal only moved to Lille in January 2015, bids from Spurs, Arsenal and Manchester City are expected in 2016 - the issue being is that he is recovering from an operation intended to address a recurring injury issue. PSG and Monaco have both had the player watched regularly and PSG, Barcelona and Chelsea have spoken with Lille to see if some sort of deal may be possible. Roma, Inter, Manchester United and Lyon have also had the player watched this season.}

Dear Ed002 can you please confirm to me if Arsenal are interested in Lacazette please, gutted that you no longer give us a breakdown on players, a few have spoiled it for all.

{Ed002's Note - Interest in Lyon's Lacazette from Newcastle and Inter (who would struggle to fund a move) has long gone. Additionally, whilst Guy Hillion has continued to extol his virtues but there is no support whatesoever from the folks in London for a bid at this time - so prior interest of Chelsea has gone. Barcelona, Juventus and Spurs have also recently had him watched but Barcelona has another solution in mind and will not be following up, Juventus have taken it no further but are expected to return with an offer after losing out on another player. Spurs have also their sights set on someone else.

West Ham enquired after Lacazette's availability and are certainly interested as long as his wage demands are not too high - as they will have the money for transfers but are very much constrained over wages. West Ham have made it clear that they will what they see is a very good fee but will not over pay on the transfer - but Lyon will look for at least €10M more for a sale to an English side as they know what they can expect from elsewhere. Regardless of that, West Ham has submitted two offers for Lacazette - both rejected.

He is not first or second choise for PSG but they could potentially turn to him. Lyon are very difficult to negotiate with and they may well see an Gallic shrug in response to any initial bids. Lacazette wants English money and Champions League or Juventus, but two French players who have played in England are providing advice that it is not essential immediately. If a price can be agreed, then West Ham has the opportunity to complete the transfer unless another English side with Champions League on offer steps in. Arsenal may turn to him if they cannot get their preferred choices - but may baulk at the money. Lacazette certainly remains of interest to Atletico Madrid and don't rule out them putting an offer on the table.}

Cool, THX Ed.

Our striker situation is very unsettling at the moment, nice to know we have a fallback position.

You have some impressive knowledge ed002. Great to have such insight.

01 Jul 2016 13:18:25
well if lacazette is not our preferred option, i assume he should be.

with Morata likely to move to chelsea and higuain to PSG, unless Asano is our primary target i don't see how we can compete with other teams.

read on the chelsea forum that Morata is a target after them almost confirming the belgian michi batchuyashi. so a good 100 mill or whatever on 2 strikers and we are still unable to find one?

seems like that year when we got all desperate and ended up with mert, santos and chamakh all over again.

atleast we got Xhaka so one signing a year maybe what we are able to do.

not sure sanchez and ozil will stick around if we finish 4th this season.

Still early days laker. Just got to be calm I'm sure they're working hard. Do we as fans really want us to overpay? I know it's not our money but I don't personally.

Incredibly informative as usual.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, but no bids from England.}

Chelsea were interested last summer and I believe the interest remains to some extent.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jun 2016 20:16:34
Thanks. Maybe we could get persic and icardi. Do you have any info on Antonio colak and tamura asano?

{Ed002's Note - Asano remains of interest and an offer has been made. I am not aware of Hoffenheim being open to selling Colak.}

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jun 2016 20:37:05
Would asano have to go on loan?

{Ed002's Note - It depends on what is paid for him and the wages.}

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jun 2016 21:05:35
Ok thanks mate.

29 Jun 2016 21:06:59

Hi eds do you know if Arsenal are in talk with or interested in draxler this summer?

{Ed001's Note - I am not aware of Arsenal doing anything this summer, with regards to Draxler.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

29 Jun 2016 13:03:28
That's a shame draxler or Reus would have made good Arsenal signings.

Hello ed, higuain agent has said that he will not sign a new contract at napoli, would this make arsenal and others more interested to sign him and if so, do u expect him to leave?

{Ed001's Note - I expect him to leave, but I would expect PSG to be his likely move.}

Agree0 Disagree1

29 Jun 2016 13:48:43
Would u think arsenal would at least put in a bid for higuain and surprise everyone by getting him? And also ed is barbosa a striker or winger? In other words is he vardys replacement?

Agree0 Disagree1

29 Jun 2016 15:06:09
As far as I'm aware, Apex, Barbosa can play anywhere across that front 3, but plays mainly on the right, cutting in onto his preferred left foot.

29 Jun 2016 16:23:17
Thanks D, i dunno why ed didn't reply.

{Ed001's Note - my mistake, I did reply but most have clicked to shut the ed's note before sending and not noticed.}

The problem is, Arsenal are going to be linked with every striker from now till the last second of deadline day.

We as a club, need a better quality starting striker than Giroud.
We, as a fan base, almost unanimously want a striker more than any other position.

The papers/ websites are going to capitalise on this like there's no tomorrow.
To be fair I would too, if I could garner a few hundred quid every time I linked Arsenal to a new striker.
In fact, from when I woke up today at 7, till now, I'd probably of posted about 8 different 'advanced talks for X striker' stories.

But I digress.
I know Lacazette's got fairly good stats, but I just cannot see us paying a fee similar to Özil or Sanchez for a 'good' player, even if they would potentially improve us.
I must admit, I don't watch much, if any Ligue 1, so I'm basically going off my limited knowledge of French football, but didn't Lacazette play most/ a lot of his game time this season on the wing?

The football world has changed, £30-40m used to be a LOT of money for a player.
But now you've got apparent bids from West Ham and Palace of £30m for Batshuyai (apologies if I've butchered that name) you've got players like Xhaka, who does seem a cracking signing on paper, moving for over £30m, 5 years ago, a player of his calibre is moving for £25.32 and 6 packs of pickled onion monster munch (yes, I like to exaggerate) so we can see that finally, Arsene is adapting this money talks attitude, but I'm not sure he's ready to fully commit, it's like buying your nan a mobile phone, she'll slowly start using the calls, but there's no way you're getting her to text.

So for me personally, I've decided I'm just not going to pay attention to the papers till September (no matter how much I'd like to sign Barbosa) and instead, focus my frustration and anger on how seeing just how much the England national team can disappoint me.

Thanks for the reply mate thought I'd ask the question and England was always doomed having that many kids in the squad they always fail towards the end.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jun 2016 07:35:23
We were doomed because there was to many spurs players in the English side chocker time.

Are we looking at any goal keepers this summer, or ospina staying at Arsenal?

Believable0 Unbelievable2

29 Jun 2016 11:30:24
In my humble (and often incorrect) opinion, I reckon we'll see Szczesny go back on loan.

Then if Ospina goes, Martinez or Macey will be second choice, if Ospina stays, then it's all good.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jun 2016 06:27:24
ends Arsenal have been linked with a bid for Gabriel Barbosa, is this true and has it been accepted and how much is the bid (if it is real) he looks like a very exciting player.

{Ed025's Note - arsenal are very interested brad but whether an official bid has been made is speculation at this point, its complicated as he has dual ownership and the work permit issue will be crucial to the proceedings mate..

Believable0 Unbelievable0

30 Jun 2016 06:55:40
thanks Ed025! I personally hope that we pull this one off as he looks very talented. looks like a long summer is ahead of us Gooners!

{Ed025's Note - it should be interesting brad as all the players linked are quality mate..

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2016 16:01:16
Afternoon Eds and all,

Ed002 can you see alexis sanchez and mezut özil signing new contracts this summer or do you think they will ask to leave?

Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - (a) No - but it doesn't mean she will leave. (b) Possibly.}
