I try not to get too carried away with transfer rumours, and prefer to listen to ED002 or Ornstein first, but I cannot help but get excited about Banega. I have loved his play-style for a lont time, and with Emery used to working with him, surely its a no-brainer. I am loving the defensive reinforcements so far, but Banega, yes please!

Personally, I think that's enough aging players now. If we are going to spend more money in the transfer window it should be aimed at targets we are already chasing, Soyuncu or Seri etc. Players that are still young have are reaching the prime of their careers. If he was a free transfer then fair enough.

Don't worry about the money Glen mate it makes no odds to us if he's free or 5 or 20 million, if he is good enough to still command a decent transfer fee then maybe that's a good sign rather than a disadvantage mate.

It's clearly an issue with the club though Gunner because why would you settle for a £15m 30 year old Benega over a £40m 26 year old Seri. The answer - The money. Both attacking midfielders and I know which one I would prefer. Arsenal don't need to increase the average age of the squad by 100,000 to plug the problem areas because they're cheaper and experienced. We will only have to plug those holes again next year because they're 'getting on a bit'. I am happy with the business we have done so far and looking at Torreira, he is going to be another good signing for us! If we are going to bring in more however, some younger talented players would be more beneficial.

{Ed002's Note - I don't think many would consider Banega an AM.}

Let me re-phrase for those that might be a little confused. He's a central midfielder which equally involves attacking and defending. let's take Iniesta for example, he's a central midfielder who does both but prefers to attack rather than defend. So Banega is a more 'attacking' central midfielder. Then again, we all have our own opinions.

My point about money was meant about us fans, it makes no odds to us if signings are free or 15 million it's not us paying it.
You like Seri Glen, Dick likes Banega, I think it's best Dick does what he thinks is right because it's him who will get judged either way.
Managers get sacked while fans just move on to next season regardless.
