I'm interested to hear the Ed's views on Sanllehi.
This is the most aggressive transfer window I can remember and it all seems down to this bloke. Arsenal put a ridiculously low bid in for Zaha and then started getting his family onboard, only to go sign Pepe. I can't help but think the Zaha bid was a smokescreen and that Sanllehi doesn't care who he unsettles or upsets as long as he gets the player he wants. I'm glad he's on out side! Either way, the way we conduct transfers seem to have changed forever and a return will be expected. I genuinely think there's going to be a new CB and LB come the close of this transfer window. Exciting times to be a Gooner.

{Ed001's Note - he did no such thing with Zaha. He simply tried to sign a player he thought he could get cheap because he was an Arsenal fan. His family acted off their own bat but there was no smokescreen, he was genuinely wanted. By the way, acting the way you suggest would go a long way to ensuring other clubs would not deal with him and end your chances of getting the players you want.}

My mistake. Just what is gleaned from the various media sources. Thanks for clearing that up. It all seemed a little too nefarious.

{Ed001's Note - no worries, you have to remember that football works on relationships. You only have to look at the trouble Spurs are having signing players due to Levy being so difficult.}

So Pepe was 2nd choice and he wanted Zaha first? I’m pleased we got Pepe. He seems to be a much better addition than Zaha. Whatever the case he seems to be the negotiator Arsenal have needed for some time.

Fair point, that makes total sense. Thank you.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}

We are always linked with lots of players and we obviously have seriously been interested in Zaha and Tierney all summer but a lot of Arsenal deals come out of the blue and quite often the media only get wind of it as it's close to being finalised even Emery came out of the blue when the popular media had already crowned Artetta the new king.

True Gunner. I’m
Just hoping that Luiz is ‘one of those links’ and someone else comes out of the blue!

Not sure of Luis is real Slaam mate but if he is i think he will be a fan favourite within weeks.
Once a player starts playing in your shirt you take more notice of them and I think lots of people will change their opinion on Luis quite quickly.
He's a lot lot better than many opposing fans realise.

That’s a fair shout. Guess we’ll see what happens. I’m
Chuffed to bits with this window so far. Looks like Tierney is done so let’s see what Emery can do with the talent at his disposal!

I'm not convinced about Tierney fitness at all and I am slightly worried about him making the step up too but there is only one way to find out and you've got to be in it to win it so if it happens I hope the lad is a huge success with us as with all our new players.
