I keep telling people not to be impatient but we really need to start making moves as soon as possible. Despite the window not being open, clubs are getting business done early and putting themselves in the best position for pre-season as they can. All we seem to get right now from any reputable journalist is 'top target for Arsenal'. If that's the case, get it done.

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure buying early just for the sake of it and not trying to buy the players that are wanted and needed will help arsenal at all.

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm not saying buy players for the sake of it Ed. It can't be a coincidence that everytime we are linked with players or takes us months to get deals done since being reported? Other teams seems to want players one day and have terms agreed within as little as 24 to 48 hours. If Jesus and Tielemans are our top targets then why aren't we pushing to get those deals done early. I understand its not easy but it seems to be for everyone else.

{Ed002's Note - No it is not like that at all.}

i think soo too ed. every clubs fan wants the best players on the market, guess the players should want to play for the club too. if we can't get the players we want, i guess we just need to improve where we can rather than spend big for the sake of it. not that we can spend big.

The thing I find strange is the reports about late enquiries, like the recent one for Sven Botman. They come out of nowhere, and seem to arise dispite other clubs making long term and serious enquiries.

I don't know. Maybe there is a method, maybe it's all madness. Ed002 is the life preserver I cling to in the stormy sea of Arsenal fandom.

I'm sure there is a method Alex. We are just terrible at handling transfers from start to finish. I remember Liverpool signing Fabinho out of nowhere, it just happened. None of this interested, in talks, personal terms agreed rubbish.
Every tranfer Arsenal opt for always seems to have added complications along the way. Reputation and poor personnel must be the issue.

{Ed014's Note - as long as we don’t buy Tielemens and Tammy Abrahams I’ll be happy.

Can we add Zinchenko to that no thanks list as well please Ed. Good player, yes, but not in midfield thanks. For someone hoping we sign Bissouma, that would be an incredibly underwhelming alternative.

10 Jun 2022 12:01:14
Zinchenko and Jesus have both played at the highest level in the PL. They have both won numerous trophies and have certainly contributed to the club successes. If we sign them both then that's fantastic business without question. Excellent additions to the squad ??.

10 Jun 2022 14:30:19
Absolutely agree on Jesus Glen, but as for Zinchenko, not so sure. If he is not good enough to play in Man City’s midfield, why bring him into ours? Saying that of course, we do have Xhaka, who has generally been about as effective as a pigeon in the midfield role, until Roma showed interest when he suddenly decided to up his game, albeit from a very low base. So if he is good enough, maybe Zinchenko is as well. However, my disappointment would be if he was the only signing we made for midfield, and if it is going to be just one, then once again, there are much better players out there, and who are already playing central midfield week in week out.

Arsenal want versatile players though mate, hence the links to Jesus and Zinchenko. To be fair to OZ, he hasn't been utilised in the MF because of the sheer amount of talent that they already have there. With the issue surrounding Mendy, I don't even think Pep was expecting OZ to play as well as he has there. He's shown he's versatile and works hard whenever he plays. I can understand Arsenal's interest.

Not keen on Tielemans Ed? Seems like he's our priority ?.

{Ed014's Note - no mate, 100% not, a lazy show pony and nowhere near good enough. ?

10 Jun 2022 09:00:46
Last summer window we didn’t mess around

Let’s. Give the club a chance

Ed014, morning mate, I’m with you on those 2 mediocre players.

{Ed014's Note - evening Mal, sorry was away last night but glad you agree, they’re just steps backwards!

10 Jun 2022 18:38:05
I fear we blew out transfer budget last year, and are therefore only after bargains this year, which is why Tielemans probably ticks the box.

{Ed014's Note - that’s it, I get on high because Saliba is coming home and now you’re depressing me with the thought of Tielemans! ??

10 Jun 2022 19:38:37
I'm not sure getting business done early or not really matters, however the players that we appear to be after are top of our list and may only be second or third choice on other teams, the longer the window goes on the more likely other teams will come in for them and that could be a concern.

10 Jun 2022 20:12:57
Ok Ed, if it helps, think of our CM of Tielemans and Partey. Ok, so it’s not what either of us wants, but compared to Xhaka and Partey, it’s still an improvement. ?.

{Ed014's Note - I’m actually not sure it is! ??
