Hi ed's
With lacazette done, I still feel like we need another attacking player, especially if Sanchez forces his move, which is looking more and more likely every day. Wenger also seems to feel this way, and it's being reported by Sky that Lemar is now our Number 1 target.

Have you heard anything about recent moves for Lemar after we had a £30m bid turned down, and are we looking at any holding midfielders?

I feel like the squad is almost complete now, we just need another winger who's an improvement on Theo and a proper defensive midfielder. Ramsey and xhaka played well toward the back end of the season, but if we're going for lemar I don't see how everyone would fit in a 3 back formation, and as much as I like Ramsey's desire to go beyond the striker, since xhaka himself isn't a deep lying midfielder and doesn't really have the defensive awareness yet, I feel we need someone of the Danilo Pereira/ Fabinho mould, someone to just sit back and cover the defence.

Thanks for all the work eds keep it up.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know of any second bid, it is more likely that Mahrez is the one to come in.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Thank for the reply ed.

I don't know how I'd feel about mahrez. If he can replicate his 15/ 16 form then I'm all for it, but I've more of a feeling that he won't reach that level again. If we sign him i hope he proves me wrong. Anything on interest in defensive midfielders?

{Ed001's Note - nothing that I know of.}

I thought that Ed. According to the journalists which could mean sod all that they want 50 and we won't go over 40.

Personally I think if Alexis is staying that we should be aiming to strengthen the first team, not the squad. Lemar isn't going to usurp Alexis or Ozil. Ramsey and Xhaka can be improved upon however, which is why I think we should be focusing on a new CM.

If alexis stays and another winger comes in then Wenger will revert back to 4-2-3-1. I really want Leon gortzeka to come to arsenal.

07 Jul 2017 15:58:08
Alexis is not staying. If he was, he would have said as much by now. If he wants to go, let him go. If the rumour of his £400,000 per week demand is true, then quite frankly, I would take the hit and let him rot in the reserves for a season; see how he likes that. Yes, he would go for free, but he would lose a whole year from his career for being such a greedy %$£@. A great player but not indispensable; nobody is bigger than the club, certainly not big enough to mug us over for a transfer to City.

I think we should plan for his departure, as well as those of Ox and Theo and go all out to sign Lemar, Carvalho, Martins, and another keeper.

Daily mail reporting we have upped our bid for learning to £40mil any truth in that?

{Ed025's Note - if i knew who learning was mate i might be able to help mate..

Urban let's not forget that as much as Sanchez has not said anything the fact is that he is not in control of the situation. He is under contract until next summer. Arsenal are in charge and if he is made to stay he will try because he's that type of guy. World Cup next year and he will want to play. I don't know what fee he would command but as far as I'm concerned that fee should be at least double to an EPL rival. I think he's going no where this summer unless it's abroad. it doesn't make any sense to sell him domestically this summer.

07 Jul 2017 18:45:28
Im with you sano, he's contracted untill the end of next season and then he can choose to go or stay.

07 Jul 2017 19:20:22
Let him rot in the reserves 😂😂. That'll go down well with anyone you wanna buy. Yea if you play well and we aren't contending like an ambitious person like you want them you'll rot in the reserves.

07 Jul 2017 19:27:52
To right steve. It's ok making clubs out to be a holes for making players stay. In this day and age players have short memory's the fact is that Sanchez didn't cut it at an elite club that's why he came to us. He was great before Barcelona and great after (not that he was to bad at Barca) but they took 30 million for him which is the price of an average defender in this day and age. I'm sure there is a good if not great offer on the table and if he doesn't want to take it then fine but he has a contract to honour and should be made to do so.

sorry ed, predictive changed it, i should of checked, i ment lemar.

{Ed033's Note - Best to turn off predictive

07 Jul 2017 21:42:32
am I the only one that thinks he's asking for 400k because he knows we won't pay it and it could force arsenal to sell.

07 Jul 2017 22:48:43
Good post Sanogo.

Could be Derby.

07 Jul 2017 21:43:12
Ed 033 but then you have the problem of sausage fingers.

{Ed033's Note - i think it's auto correct you turn off and turn on predictive
