BBC reported that both our bids for lemar and lacazette have been rejected. The question that pops to my mind is this: why is it that our bids always get rejected? Do we have a poor negotiating team or what? This whole debacle with lyon and monaco made me realize that our scouting network is poor.

The only promising young player we signed in the last few years is rob holding and he is english. Our scouting network especially in europe needs to be overhauled because we really can't compete with the likes of real madrid and barcelona in the transfer market at least not for now. What we need to do is invest in the academy and have a stronger scouting network like monaco.

We sign players like Rob Holding because he only cost £3.5m.

Anything more than £10m and we are ripping up furniture and smashing piggy banks to find pennies.

They don't get accepted because the offer is not what they were looking for?

Arsene Wnger in April "I don't know what a Football director does"

He does this.

I don't think its our scouting network as such, as we do have a group of youngsters at the club who have shown promise. The trouble IMO is that we keep allowing older players to take up squad places when we should be promoting/ rewarding the youngsters with first 11 squad places. With our recent record I don't know why any youngster would bother with our academy. let's be honest, if you were the parent of a talented 12 year old and you had Tottenham and us courting you, which would you choose based on each teams current squads? Not us for sure! Take Walcott for example. He is still with us, no longer a guaranteed starter, but still taking up that spare right wing position in the squad. Whilst Wenger has been so loyal to him we have seen Gnabry come and go (Bayern snap him up after just 1 year back in Germany, I feel we are really going to regret him going) . Campbell has been farmed out and no doubt will be sold this summer, and what next, at the end of next season the same fate will probably happen to Rene-Adelaide. Another example may be Wilshire, who IMO should be allowed to leave. If not he will end up sitting in front of under 20 World Cup winning squad member Maitland-Niles, who to be fair, has been given a first 11 squad number by Arsene, and therefore deserves a chance to be included in proper games, despite his age. The list can go on, but ultimately if we want our club to bring through youngsters, then we as fans need to accept them as full members of the squad, and accept that when they play, they may initially be less consistent than more experienced squad members.

I think that the Arsenal board think it's enough to let it get known that we are trying to buy players. Then they can hide behind "Well we tried to sign them but the club didn't want to sell". Completely ignoring the "at the price we offered" at the end. It's good that we don't get ripped off I guess but it's not my money and it's no secret we need a striker so why wouldn't the selling club demand more. If we really wanted them we'd get them.
