Morning Ed,
Could you clarify something for me?
If reports are true it's claimed Abraham has agreed terms with Arsenal.
How is this allowed when it appears Arsenal have not yet approached Chelsea with an official bid to rival that of Roma?
Are they doing the Arsenal thing when it comes to transfers here and looking for a more favourable price and risking losing the player by annoying the selling club with penny pinching because the Roma offer does not seem excessive at all.
Also could you give any insight you might have on the realistic opportunities to sign both Tolisso and B. Silva.
And just one last question, looking for your personal opinion here. Why, compared to other clubs, do Arsenal find it so difficult and why does it take them so long from when they begin negotiations to when they officially announce signings? I mean it happens all too regular where they are inept at getting their business done clean and quick and very rarely is it done in a way that gives the incoming player time to hit the ground running.

{Ed002's Note - His agent has permission to find him another club so it is fine by Chelsea - but I am not sure it is true. There was a lot of pressure on Tuesday for him to agree a move to Roma after rejecting Atalanta. Whilst he may want a move to Arsenal the club has not made an offer and Roma will push today to complete a deal.}

Interesting Ed.
Are you aware of preferred targets or have Arsenal stopped looking for a striker based on ‘Lacca’ interest in our own strikers?

{Ed002's Note - I have explained all of this before so there is nothing new. Right now huge efforts are being made to sell players.}

Hi Ed you mentioned a little while ago that Icardi is very much on Arsenal`s radar if he leaves PSG. With Messi arriving and likely he will get less game time is Icardi looking to leave? After all PSG need the money lol COYG.

{Ed002's Note - No. I have never said such a thing.}

I read it again and I think it was wishful thinking on my part. I guess he is on Lazio`s radar not ours. Thanks again for info COYG.
