Hi Ed,
Does this mean no new business until the manager is sorted?


{Ed001's Note - the whole point of the new backroom staff was to take over transfers etc.}

Any idea who eds.

{Ed002's Note - What?}

20 Apr 2018 17:51:23
I think he’s asking what players are arsenal interested in, but not too sure ed.

20 Apr 2018 18:50:18
The backroom staff are mislinstat and sanalhi Steven.

Yeah sorry that's what I meant any idea on which players.

{Ed002's Note - Something like this:
Bernt Leno (GK) - Bayern may yet be interested and has resisted moves to Barcelona and Real Madrid in the past. Napoli also see him as first choice. If he can't be first choice with Champions League football then he would likely not consider a move. First pick for SM at Arsenal.
Timo Horn (GK) - may be a viable option.
Jan Oblak (GK) - circumstances are such that there could be significant interest from elsewhere if he were to be available, and price a major stumbling block.
Alban Lafont (GK) - another player, like Sule, that Arsenal have made no secret of their long-term interest but have not committed at all.
Keylor Navas (GK) - Liverpool are keen as well.
Kepa Arrizabalaga (GK) - not going to happen.

Alvaro Odriozola (RWB) - if Bellerin were to leave - but won't want to leave Spain just yet.
Ryan Fredericks (RB) – watched a couple of times but a move is unlikely.

Chris Smalling (CB) - interest may leave with AW, but being English gives him an advantage. Harry Maguire might be a better solution.
Medhi Benatia (CB) - first choice in January.
Sokratis Papastathopoulos (CB) – Dortmund are trying to fend off interest but if Juventus were to win out it will free up Rugani.
Daniele Rugani (CB) – a bit of a wildcard but has been looked at by Arsenal.

Fabinho (DM/RB) - I expect interest to leave with Wenger, but he will be available.
Abdoulaye Doucoure (M) – another viable option, not as defensive as perhaps preferred but capable of providing a good solution.
Julian Weigl (DM) – interest from elsewhere will win out.
Wilfred Ndidi (DM) Wenger is keen apparently, but I am not sure that is shared by others.

Max Meyer (CM) - I think there is a very good chance that something can be done.
Tanguy Ndombele (CM) – has been watched several times by one senior scout who tells me that Arsenal want him - but I expect Lyon to take up their option.
Maycon (CM) - won't happen, he is heading elsewhere.
Jean-Michael Seri (CM) – still not interested in Arsenal and discussions are in hand with another side.

Nabil Fekir (AM) - it will be difficult because of his club, but something is possible.
Bernard (AM/LW) alternative to Fekir, but Inter (whose interest runs hot and cold) may provide a viable alternative to Arsenal for the player.
Oguzhan Ozyakup (AM) - Arsenal want to bring him back but it won’t happen.

Riyad Mahrez (RW) - if he moves it will probably not be to Arsenal.
Malcom (RW) - I am doubtful he would move to Arsenal unless two other clubs step away.
Andrija Zivkovic (RW) - maybe priced out of a move.

Ademola Lookman (LW) - has been watched at RBL.

Timo Werner (S) – not going to happen.}

Thanks ed, do you think that the managerial position will be sorted before the end of the season?

{Ed002's Note - There is every chance but it may not be announced.}

20 Apr 2018 20:44:45
Thanks ed. Some players on that list I like a lot . Max Meyer seems like a no brainer. Fabinho looks a good option, I like Jorginho but I feel he is a step to far for arsenal. I like harry maguire a rough diamond perhaps but I feel we need to brush up on our defensive coaching, maybe comewith the new head coach. I’ve watched federicks a few times and like the look of what I’ve seen, really like his team mate sessegnon but feel again that we won’t be able to do that as he looks a real talkent. Fekir I would blow my load
Thanks again.

Ed002 what a post! Thanks!

With a heavy German influence from Sven Mislinstat and Spanish influence from Sanllehi, a German or Spanish manager and players is a distinct possibility.
Manager - Enrique
Keeper - A German is likely as our chief scout is German and Germany provide many top keepers.
Defence - Interesting, as many top defenders seem to play in Italy.
Midfield - Already looking at Max Meyer.
