Hi Ed002, Are Arsenal looking to move on Gabriel Jesus, which team might be interested? And who could be Arsenal's first choice striker if Jesus (and Nkettiah) are moved on?

Thanks as always mate.

{Ed002's Note - Gabriel Jesus (F) Arsenal are not looking to sell GJ but if a significant offer is made they will consider it. There is no clear interest at this time and the player will likely not be attracted to the Middle East just yet for fear he will lose his place in the Brazil squad.
Eddie Nketiah (S) If Arsenal can add Toney EN will be allowed to leave. Crystal Palace offer an option. Brentford may be interested in a part exchange.

Toney will remain first choice but there is interest from elsewhere and Arsenal have other options.}

That's brilliant info as always Ed002. Could you tell us the other options Arsenal have apart from Toney like you mentioned?

{Ed002's Note - Something like this:
Ivan Toney (S) Brentford do not want to sell but are aware Toney may look to move up a step and will reluctantly look to perhaps £70M as a sale price in the summer but may have to accept less. Newcastle - if they can sell their project to him given - offer the chance of a return to the club who previously could find no use for him in the three years he was there. Arsenal, Leeds, Manchester United, Spurs, Chelsea and West Ham have all sent scouts on more than one occasion to watch him prior to his ban, but Chelsea have preferred options meaning Arsenal are likely best placed to complete a transfer. A wildcard might be Spurs or Manchester United.
Benjamin Sesko (S/F) RBL could be offered a quick profit. His agent has not stopped offering the player around since his move to RBL. Described by a well known ex-Premier League player and high-end scout as "raw but improving". Was on the list for Spurs as a potential Kane replacement and Newcastle enquired. Chelsea spoke with his agent but have preferred options. A wildcard may be either Manchester United or Arsenal. Will probably not be available in January with Werner departing unless a replacement is added.
Borja Mayoral (S) Attracting attention from London with Fulham, Arsenal and West Ham declaring an interest after sending scouts.
Ollie Watkins (S) Agent is looking for options and has spoken with Arsenal.
Ivan Toney (S) Brentford do not want to sell but are aware Toney may look to move up a step and will reluctantly look to perhaps £70M as a sale price. Newcastle - if they can sell their project to him given - offer the chance of a return to the club who previously could find no use for him in the three years he was there. Arsenal, Leeds, Manchester United, Spurs, Chelsea and West Ham have all sent scouts on more than one occasion to watch him prior to his ban. Arsenal, Spurs and Chelsea may well start talks ahead of January, but Spurs and Chelsea have preferred options meanining Arsenal are likely best placed to complete a transfer.
Artem Dovbyk (S) Joined Girona in the summer of 2023 with the City Group planning on possibly moving him to Manchester City if all goes well. Chelsea and Arsenal have had scouts watch him but both have preferred targets. Potential Broja replacement for Chelsea.
Victor Boniface (S) Juventus have Bonface as a first choice Vlahovic replacement if needed. Barcelona may want him to replace Lewandowski. Probably first choice for Napoli to replace Osimhen. Arsenal and West Ham have sent scouts. Bayer Leverkusen would seek a huge profit if forced to sell. Player wants a move to Spain eventually but will likely see out another season in Germany.
Victor Osimhen (S) Napoli made it clear to Chelsea who enquired in 2021 that even €100M would not buy the player - but they do maintain an interest and he has been first choice and expect an offer to be made in the summer - they have already assured Napoli that they will pay his release clause in full – but that may change. Al Hilal may well have offered Napoli the huge fee they were looking for, but that may not suit the player just yet. Real Madrid could look to him as an option to Haaland but Madrid would want to offer players in exchange. He has signed a new contract and, at the behest of his agent, included a release clause. Arsenal have a preferred option and see the price as too high. PSG have him on a list of potential Mbappe replacements. If Manchester City were to lose Haaland, he would be an option. Manchester United may offer a wildcard option but the change of staff could end any interest. There is a suggestion that Liverpool have negotiated directly with the player and his agent and not spoken to Napoli. Given Napoli registered a complaint against Liverpool over another player last year, it would seem unlikely, or particularly stupid. In the players hands next summer - may decide to stay but there will be a return from Michael Emanalo with a very good offer but I understand that both PSG and Chelsea have already informed Napoli that remain keen - but Chelsea have not had a positive response from the player - perhaps because of the lack of Champions League football. Chelsea are already looking at options but could make a take-it-or-leave-it offer below his release clause with discussions over two other players going on between the clubs.
Dusan Vlahovic (S) Only joined in January 2022 but financial issues that Juventus now have will determine if he is to be sold in the summer – but they will hold out for €70M. His agent has approached Manchester United, Chelsea and PSG. Real Madrid are also keen but, like Chelsea, have preferred targets. Chelsea were open to an exchange of players last summer but right now there is no push as his wage demands are seen as excessive and they will look to other targets first. PSG have him as a possible Mbappe replacement - but not first choice - but don't lose sight of them. As a wildcard, Atletico Madrid or Arsenal may rekindle interest but would likely want to include players in any deal. Juventus have already drawn up a list of potential replacements and are working on those even though they are working on another new contract. Karim Benzema (S) Wants to move away from Al-Ittihad with agent offering him to higher profile clubs. His club could block a loan and wage costs will be an issue. Outside chance could drom his wage demands and move to Lyon if they pay his outstanding tax bill. Approaches made to Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United.
Santiago Gimenez (S) Having another good season at Feyenoord and attracting interest of Milan, Arsenal, Chelsea, Lille, Spurs, Juventus, Real Madrid, Napoli and Eintracht Frankfurt. He has become the first choice Harry Kane replacement for Spurs after they lost out on their preferred option in the summer but not first choice for Chelsea or Real Madrid - although don't discount either. Spurs have an advantage that Feyenoord are interested in a Spurs player, Barcelona may offer a wildcard option following a discussion between Deco and someone they are trying to recruit. Others, such as Atletico, Marseille, Crystal Palace and West Ham can be discounted. Lille and Eintracht Frankfurt would only be viable if they make significant sales and others drop out. Cost could be pretty high - they will look for perhaps €55M - ending interest of most of these clubs. Don't discount Arsenal, Milan or Napoli who are planning for life after Osimhen.
Alexander Isak (S) Newcastle have no intention of selling Isak but it is likely either Isak or Bruno Guimaraes may need to be sold to stay on the right side of the line for financial reasons. Barcelona see him as a potential Lewandowski replacement. Down the list of targets for Arsenal but Spurs may offer a solution.
Viktor Gyokeres (S) After only joining in the summer Sporting have no interest in selling but fear a club could simply pay his €100M buy out clause in full and try to persuade him to move. Sporting fear Chelsea may do that and have avoided the subject during discussions over another player and a separate issue. He has attracted scouts representing Manchester United and Arsenal with Arsenal possibly seeing him as an option to first choice Toney. Sporting are looking to a new contract and an increase in his buy-out clause.}

I don't want Jesus to move on. He's having an op in the summer I believe so he's obviously not at his best. I just love having him in the squad with his energy and drive.

Thanks for the update ed002.

01 May 2024 19:19:53
Ed002 that is a brilliant update. So much info to take in. Thanks for all the work you do mate. Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

03 May 2024 01:06:59
Yaasss, nothing quite like a list from the Oracle, thanks 002.

03 May 2024 09:45:56
Morning Edoo2, if you could pick a forward on your list, who would you go for?

{Ed002's Note - I think Ollie Watkins might suit Arsenal very well.}

03 May 2024 10:55:11
Thanks buddy, I like him and isacs.

{Ed002's Note - Isaks would also be a good fit.}

03 May 2024 12:09:44
We could sell Jesus, Eddie and martinelli and get them both

Would that be a dream Ed.

08 May 2024 12:32:05
Why sell martinelli.

08 May 2024 17:00:43
Because he’s shyte Stephen

All he is a speed merchant

No ball control, all he does is pass backwards and sideways

Has no shot in him

If we was offered big money I would take it and run

And I have a feeling he will be sold in the summer.

23 May 2024 07:40:15
I think he is a good player in my opinion.
