Reports emerging that Arsenal may sell Koscielny during the current window, and Mkhitaryan as well.
In respect of Koscielny, he will be 34 in September, so it makes sense to move him on. That leaves us with 4 centre backs: Holding, Mavropanos, Mustafi and Sokratis, so a fifth is clearly needed and hopefully Medley can also fill in, as he matures.
I would like to think we can move Mkhitaryan on, but have my doubts as he is on extremely high wages and has turned 30.

Ed last week (I think) you said Ibrahima Konate did not want to move to Arsenal, why is that?

{Ed002's Note - Ibrahima Konate has said he does not want to move to Arsenal and has set his target rather higher.}

We are going to get some overaged players again aren’t we.

{Ed002's Note - Or a very expensive mistake if looking to Umtiti still.}

You keep mentioning Umtitti as if you expect something to happen their Ed.

{Ed002's Note - As I have said, there is interest.}

Is it a expensive mistake because if his injuries or because he’s not good? Because anything is better than Mustafi Ed.

{Ed002's Note - He is not worth the €60M asking price for a multitude of reasons, not least the injuries.}

Thanks Ed, it looks like according to you arsenal are stupid enough to pay the money.

Ed, are the links with Ryan Fraser credible?

Would make a great squad player, but would be a little underwhelming as our main winger signing.

{Ed002's Note - Try searching.}

I have been impressed by him. I believe he can improve further at Arsenal.

Ryan Fraser is a Scottish professional footballer ✅ who plays as a winger ✅ in the Premier League ✅ racking up 14 assists ✅✅✅ this season.

Great signing and surely exactly what we want.

Average player at best. Kind of signing a mid-table team takes on.

RSharpe you could say the same about Valencia joining Man United, or Mane joining Liverpool. Fraser has created more than double the scoring opportunities of anyone else in the league this season.

Don’t get me started on Mane - that’s one I really wanted us to sign with Zaha as second choice. I never realised LFC would have paid that much for him but what a bargain now. EPL experience has a huge impact on the risk you take. The speed, skill and energy required for EPL is not seen elsewhere. Hence my would like a few epl signings so the risk and impact is greater. I also wanted Johnny Evans.

On another note - Chambers wins Fulham player of the season in a role we really need cover in = CDM. Could he be a “new signing” and fill that gap with Torriera. Not ideal but we need a battler in there and we need lots of signings on a limited budget. May be a great shout to balance the books and improve the team?

If only it was as easy as have money like a City.

Hi eds do you roughly know what our budget is this summer a d do you see many coming and going sorry if been said before.

{Ed002's Note - It really doesn't work like that. Much will depend on what money can be obtained by selling players.}

Our defence has been coming and going all season. Unfortunately, our manager doesn’t get it and Mustafi wants to stay. 😐

Carry on defending with Mustafi as Sid James and emery playing the role of Stephen Lewis.

Memphis depay anyone? I know it’s highly unlikely but I’d say he would be a real hit if he made his way back to the premier league now, has had his time at Lyon to mature.

Like to ask the Ed’s if they supported arsenal who would they like to sign this summer based on the reported transfer budget.

{Ed004's Note - I would probably focus all my efforts on your defence as Im not sure any of your centre backs are good enough anymore and with Bellerin out and Monreal leaving you are light at full back as well. Sokratis is a good player so maybe sign 2 centre backs comfortable on the ball either side of him (seen links with Umtitti and he would be an incredible signing for you). Maybe a winger like Carassco to give you an option when Ozil Lacazette or Auba needs a rest. Alongside Mkhitaryan and Iwobi that should be plenty of options.

I'm with Ed004 though I'd focus equally on midfield. Holding back in, Mustafi out, and a new young-ish CB + defensively solid LB. Defended Xhaka before but at this stage it's clear he can't improve this team, so him out along with Elneny and sadly Ramsey, and a promising box-to-box or DM in. Find a solid winger and move on Mkhitaryan and we're sorted. 2 starters and 2 potential/ depth players would do me just fine.

Leno, Bellerin, Sokratis, Kos/ Holding, new CB, Kolasinac, Torreira, new CM, Ozil, Auba, Laca. Let's aim for 3rd next season and build from there.

{Ed004's Note - You will know better than me but can you rely on Kosc for another season and is Holding good enough/will he return the same player after a serious injury? I think Tierney could be a good option for you at left back as hes decent cover who could hopefully over time force Kolasinac out of the side. Rabiot makes sense if Emery is keen. He would suit the role Xhaka currently plays}

Role he plays or should play?

{Ed004's Note - The role Xhaka plays in your side. A more defensive box to box role}

Good points and Kos should be able to play when fit, with Holding forcing his way in. We also have Mavropanos who is an unknown at this stage. Ultimately even if we only sign one starter CB that still gives us a solid back 2, Emery doesn't seem wedded to the back 3 like, say, Conte.

Agree on Rabiot but his attitude and wages makes me wonder if perhaps we are taking too big a risk at a time when we already have Özil throwing a strop.
