Hi Eds,

With Martinez off and Torreira looking likely to be sold, we should stand to make a combined ~40m from them. Let's say for arguments sake we were able to then sell Kolasinac and Sokratis for a combined 15m (whether direct sells or loans with obligation to buy, most likely the case for Kola) and bearing in mind they are both on decent wages, do you think that'd be enough for us to get BOTH Aouar and Partey? I am confident the sales of Martinez and Torreira will definitely cover the cost of one.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed said we are risking future earnings on today’s transfers. So Ed correct me if I’m wrong, Ed is basically saying that sure arsenal can get Aouar and Partey, however it will be with money we have not earned, therefore high risk for the club.

{Ed002's Note - Why try and put words in to my mouth?}

Sorry I might not have worded by question properly. I didn't necessarily mean will the sales alone cover the estimated fees of Aouar and Partey, more, do we have any additional transfer funds in our kitty that would enable us to buy both midfielders (with the previously mentioned sales) ? Although I am still expecting the answer to still be no hahaha.

{Ed002's Note - There is no kitty - Arsenal are betting future success and earnings on transfers.}

No idea what I said different to you Ed. You said we are betting future success and earnings on transfers. I previously asked if we can only get one of Partey or Aouar, you basically answered that that is not the case. So would you mind explaining where I put words in your mouth please mate.

I see. What happens if this backfires? Issues with FFP/ forced to sell squad players I presume?

I think it was said weeks ago that we will earn out transfer money from the sale of players, nothings changed has it, I just don’t get Ozil . ED - is it that Ozil isn’t bothered or the fact that MA just doesn’t like him ( style ) ?

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal would like him sold but he will look to see his contract out. Maybe that will change but for now that is where we are.}
