And the winger merry-go-round begins, Barcelona sign malcom, real madrid will flex their muscle sparking a domino affect which arsenal are, I believe all ready laying the foundations for enquiring about availability of certain players, dembele, martins and coman I am surprised there hasn't been much talk about Zaha though. If we sell welbeck, Jenkins on and with Walcott already gone our British quota will be a lot lower and I think europa rules regarding home grown players are more rigid than pl ones maybe one of the Eds can shed a bit more light on that though. Another question for Eds with brexit round the corner is this going to be the last chance to sign forgein players especially young ones without much hassle regarding work permits?

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath over the likes of Coman and Gelson Martins. There is no decision at this time about how Brexit will eventually impact sports but at some point WPs will be required for all non British nationals. It is no big deal.

The rules differ slightly and may be adopted or adapted by the EPL at some point. The EPL rules are a max of 25 players over 21 of which a max of 17 can be non-Home Grown). The remaining eight have to be HG (spending 3 years between 16 and 21 with an English or Welsh side, regardless of nationality). If there are not enough HG players, then the squad size reduces, so if there are only six, the squad reduces to 23. In terms of UEFA competitions, the rules vary slightly with the eight "HG". A maximum of four of those eight can be trained by other clubs in the English and Welsh association. The remaining have to be club trained. So If Arsenal were to recruit John Terry, he would fall in to the category of being association trained (by Chelsea) rather than club trained. Again, if there are not sufficient club trained players the squad size is reduced.}

Thanks Ed, I know you done a podcast but what wingers could arsenal actually get? It seems like there’s no standout players we could potentially get?

{Ed002's Note - I have told you where there is or has been interest. I really can't say who the club can "actually get". Andrija Zivkovic, Goncalo Guedes, Emil Forsberg etc. all remain potentially available whi;st others are not any longer.}

Thanks Ed, Maybe I should ask on the Barcelona page but is Dembele going to be leaving with the arrival of Malcom?

{Ed002's Note - It is unrelated to Malcom but he is available.}

looks like Gelson Martins has signed for Atletico, and Malcom to Barca, with Roma interested in Bailey. so that's 3 we can potentially strike off the list.
