Ed001 have you seen any of the Fabio Viera guy? Looks like a young talent for squad depth, I'm not sure of how good he is and where he'll fit.

{Ed001's Note - not much, but he does seem an unnecessary buy unless Smith-Rowe is surplus? It does seem an oddity of this Arsenal regime to only buy in positions you don't need to strengthen. Maybe it is so Arteta can send Smith-Rowe and Odegaard out on loan as Saliba is not being loaned?}

Smith-Rowe is being used more on the left with Martinelli. Ødegaard and Fabio in the middle and Saka on the right. We need another RW too.
We could also play Partey as a lone 6 with both Ødegaard and Fabio in front. ESR can come in central with both Odegaard and/ or Fabio. I wouldn't say it's unnecessary as it adds quality to the depth of the squad. A very good signing imo.

The window is still open so maybe not an unnecessary signing at this stage. If we fail to add quality in comparison to Torriera, AMN with Eleney extended and Xhaka appears not to be moving then likely.

Odegraad can’t play all the games and ESR can’t find the passes he can and this kid seems to have it in him.

So Spurs sign a decent midfielder with proven premiership experience, for 25m, and we sign a player with no premiership experience, for more, if the quoted prices are to be believed. Sounds like perfect business to me, now where are those nice white coated gentlemen with the special coat!

Different players mate, stop comparing them. Did Bissouma get 6 goals and 15 assists? No. Did he have a 50m release clause that according to Romano, we negotiated down to 35m? No. Great bit of business and a solid buy ??.

{Ed014's Note - ??

Nicely put Glenn mate.

And does he have any premiership experience Glen, that’s a big fat no. Also does he play in a position we really need, again, looks like a no as well. Pepe stats weren’t too bad either, but they were also in a weaker league. Let’s hope he turns out well, but if his signing is at the cost of Smith-Rowes future at our club, I won’t be happy.
