Arsenal banter 70106


Use our rumours form to send us arsenal transfer rumours.

Reports that we are after Napoli's Kevin Malcuit, which makes sense as Bellerin is out long term, Lichtsteiner will no doubt depart in the summer and Jenkinson simply not good enough. Whilst Maitland-Niles needs to start playing in his preferred DM role.
The strongest current rumours are Malcuit and Perisic. If we sign both I would be reasonably happy.

If we can loan him and not have to commit to buying him then sure. 😂 Emery said no defensive reinforcements anyway so attack attack attack!

28 Jan 2019 20:04:57
Attack attack attack? Oh that's reassuring:- (, come on Arsene, I mean Dick or is it Darsene Wengemery.

28 Jan 2019 20:45:28
What else are we supposed to do? We can’t rely on a strong defensive performance so that’s all we can do! Emery said it today in his presser. “We are scoring lots of goals, if we concede a goal because we were working hard defensively high up the pitch then I’m happy with that”.

28 Jan 2019 20:54:33
Sounding more Like Darsene every minute Glen, no worried about defending too much as confident we can outscore anyone:- (
Look where that philosophy has got us over the last decade.
Sorry but if all we've done is change the face but not the philosophy in the dug out I see little point in changing manager at all.

He has his hands tied atm as we can't spend money until the summer then I'm hoping defenders will come in.

RG Ainsley is much more of a box-to-box than a DM. I think he would partner brilliantly with Torreira and could actually be the Ramsey replacement we need.

29 Jan 2019 07:57:33
Wire - He lacks any sort of goal record to be a true box to box midfield player. I also wish he would look less casual when he plays and imrove his intensity. He will turn 22 this year and he needs to nail down a position and prove he should be a first choice selection.

29 Jan 2019 08:12:29
I think in a 3 man midfield he would be worth a run at right of centre with Torreira central and Guendouzi to the left of the 3.

29 Jan 2019 10:45:22
Maitland-Niles will never have any kind of goal scoring record because he is always played out of position, usually defence. He's so composed on the ball and can easily be a starter for us but he needs the opportunity of a run of games in his preferred role.

29 Jan 2019 10:57:39
Totally agree Glen the boy needs a chance to shine on his best position, maybe he will be brilliant or maybe he won't but I think it's better we find out in an Arsenal shirt than someone else's, as we did when Ox joined Liverpool.
We need to give people a decent chance to make it with us rather than endlessly stick by Xhaka who still hasn't got close to looking like a top 4 player.

29 Jan 2019 11:26:11
Exactly that Gunner mate. Another prime example, Gnabry to Bayern Munich. let's hope we don't screw up with MN as well.

29 Jan 2019 12:03:16
Of course the younger players need to be encouraged and played, but it is difficult at the top to integrate youngsters into teams. Maitland-Niles will turn 22 next season and must push on.

29 Jan 2019 15:10:02
RG, you’re being overly critical of one of our brightest young players for a long time, who is consistently played out of position, by AW and UE.

Not sure how many goals you expect him to get from wing back or full back, or how he can push on when he’s not a defender.

Stop posting nonsense.

29 Jan 2019 16:28:21
Let's not forget Ramsey hadn't shown much goal scoring threat until he was 22/ 23 and it was quite a change when he suddenly had his break through season and he was played in a position that offered far more opportunities.
