Obviously been talked to death but few papers now say moratas agent is trying to push the buy back deal with Real Madrid so Arsenal can then get him for 46m.

Elo all.
Eds are arsenal interested in Sturridge and do you think Sturridge would b interested in joining. Thanks.

{Ed001's Note - not that I am aware of, and a return to London might well interest him. He does seem like the perfect Arsenal player, fast, technically superb but injury prone. It is a match made in heaven!}

Injury prone. Ha.

24 May 2016 13:37:00
An excellent player, but injury prone and would Liverpool sell to us, or would we do a swop deal with Walcott or Ox going the other way?

Seen a few places linking us to Benatia at Bayern. wondering if there was any truth in this?
Would be a decent good follow up to Xhaka if we can get him at the right price.
Thanks.

Well, bayern just bought hummels, so they will be offloading one of their defenders, either benatia or martinez for sure. I think Benatia will be a very good addition, with plenty of experience playing for a top team in europe. what's my fellow gunners thoughts of him?

Would be a great signing.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2016 16:00:31
Well I wouldn't say no to Benatia but I think we should be looking at someone younger that will take the reigns from kos once he decides to move on or hang up his boots.

Varane
Laporte (although citeh bound)
Marquinhos
Rugani
Murillo
Stones
Tah

There are plenty out there that will improve us and at a much younger age, they can develop and become our rock. i don't see the point in signing a 29 year old when our defence is aging enough as it is.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2016 16:19:10
I think I remember us being linked with Rugani last summer. think those top three would be too expensive and unwilling to come but would be good to have a quality young defender.

Never know, Chambers might become a rock at the back next season.

Eds do you know if arsenal are interested in Benatia? And if so what do u make of him?

{Ed001's Note - there has been longstanding interest from Arsenal, but I don't expect any more to materialise in the summer. It is difficult to judge him, he looks good when I have seen him play, but playing for Bayern is easy for a defender and the internationals (unless I am mixing him up with someone it is Morocco he plays for right?) have been against a low standard of opponent. I have looked at him purely because he was of interest to Arsenal and he does look a good fit, from what I saw. Age and injury history might count against any more due to the price being too high for a 29 year old.}

Rugani had another encouraging season, he'll be a top top player

As for chambers, I'd love to see him grow into that centre half position, he looked far more comfortable there than at RB, he just needs to calm down abit, he's a headless chicken as it stands. Maybe a loan is best for him next year?

Beilik could do with some game time, he's impressed me this season, maybe next season is to early for him but I'd chuck him in there for the cup games n whatnot.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2016 11:04:05
Thanks for the response Ed. In your opinion who do you think will be the best fit for arsenal in the centre back position?

{Ed001's Note - players such as Musacchio would be the best fit for Arsenal. He is not perfect defensively, but he is quick for the high line and technically excellent on the ball. Maybe Mustafi from Valencia would be good too, especially as he has lived in England before so should be quick to adapt.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2016 11:39:48
Do you think any of the players you have mentioned are realistic targets for arsenal?

{Ed001's Note - yes, which is why I mentioned the pair of them. Both are available, both have been looked at.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2016 12:12:26
Ohhh okay thanks ed for your responses.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2016 18:14:10
Heard we are very interested in Mkhitaryan.

Would be chuffed, he's top top quality.

Believable4 Unbelievable1

23 May 2016 20:57:07
From what I'm hearing, he's likely to arrive at Chelsea this summer.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2016 13:53:03
Not sure on truth but saw some squad numbers are changing
Cech-1
Alexis-7
Coq- 8.

Believable2 Unbelievable0

22 May 2016 19:23:04
Walcott 0
The 'Woeful' Flamini 0
The OX will wear 50:50
As the next big thing, The Jeff can wear whatever number he wants.

Mourinho to utd then apparently! According to aunty beeb it will be officially announced on Tuesday.
That's tge two cup winning managers gone already and leaves Raneiri as this seasons only successful manager not to be sacked, yet! :-)

Would man united not have needed to declare their interest in replacing lvg back in feburary like they did with fergie leaving and now man city this year.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2016 13:38:00
Well done ed02 you said months ago arsenal would look for an early agreement for xhaka.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

21 May 2016 21:17:02
Where did he say that. Thought he'd not said anything on Arsenal. If so hope he's doubters see this and realise how they've ruined things for a lot of us.

{Ed002's Note - He said it a very long time ago.}

Agree1 Disagree0

21 May 2016 22:38:04
Xhaka has been courting us as much as we have been him.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2016 23:13:35
He said it ages ago on the euro page.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 May 2016 00:10:22
Didn't know that ed002! All the best to ya!

Agree1 Disagree0

22 May 2016 07:23:22
ed 002 is the sage of the site all the power of Merlin and then some.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 May 2016 19:17:42
I still think RG knows more than Ed002.

NOT REALLY!

Hi ed, are we interested in Alvaro Morata, seems as if there is to many if's and but's in that deal (Juve > Real > Arsenal) . Thanks.

{Ed001's Note - yes but it is a complex deal, Madrid are looking to get him back and sell him on for a profit.}

Believable1 Unbelievable0

21 May 2016 17:13:12
Say Madrid can buy him back for 25m. Can't we just offer juve 30m instead of waiting for him to go back to Madrid? Sounds confusing all this.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2016 19:10:21
Do juve have to sell him to Madrid if they offer a certain price? That was what I gathered. But what if morata wanted to remain at juve?

{Ed001's Note - if he chooses to remain at Juve, nothing happens. If he leaves then Madrid have a buyback clause.}

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2016 19:19:29
D16, I think Madrid have 1st option on him to buy back, so we can not buy him directly from Juventus.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2016 10:50:03
Surely the answer is to pay Juventus enough to compensate Madrid much as Chelsea did with Barcelona to pay us for Fabregas, not identical situations but similar in that a former club has a financial involvement still.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2016 13:48:50
If Morata said he did not want to go back to Madrid but did want to leave Juve is that not a breach of workers rights?

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2016 15:25:36
Not if he's under contract he freely signed Galway mate, players take the clubs money if they are injured or playing badly so it's only right they should benefit from players who deliver.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hi ed's i'm sure you will have an influx of these but there's photos of Granit Xhaka in his arsenal kit, are these images correct? The one thing that's making me slightly believe is that it's the new kit so if you could shed light on it that would be great :)

Once again fantastic work on the site ed's 👍🏻.

{Ed001's Note - yep.}

Thanks ed, can't believe how early we've done our first deal :/ they will stretch this out till the last week of the transfer window lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2016 13:24:46
Pretty sure the Xhaka deal is done as I saw a photo of him in Arsenal kit at what looked like our training ground - you know the usual induction pictures, usually accompanied with a few kickups or something.

His GF apparently took the pics and they got out that way.
