Hello Ed
Have Arsenal shown a interest in Brian Brobbey of Ajax
Much appreciate your insight.

 0


{Ed002's Note - Brian Brobbey (S) Everton interest remains but so does their financial plight. Manchester United interest will go with ten Hag. A wildcard would be Arsenal. Ajax will not want to sell.}

Any chance of Arsenal getting a player like de Jong or Tchumeni as Partey replacement. Are arsenal looking for anyone in particular?

 0


{Ed002's Note - Bruno Guimaraes (DM) Real Madrid and Barcelona maintain an interest but he is not top of the list for either although Barcelona may switch their attention to him but would want to offer players in any deal. Chelsea interest has likely gone but Manchester City remain keen. Newcastle need to avoided FFP issues and he may well be one to leave. Long-term Arsenal interest went with the signing of Rice although they are looking to replace Partey, Elneny and Jorginho and he may become first choice with Zubimendi likely not available. PSG may offer a summer option if Ugarte departs.
Manuel Ugarte (DM) Agent has said that the player and PSG may be open to a move if the right offer is made. He has spoken with Chelsea but it is difficult to see if they have a need. He has also spoken with Juventus, Newcastle, Milan, Spurs and Arsenal. I suspect Italy is the most likely destination.
Amadou Onana (DM/CB/CM) Only moved to Everton in 2022 and they are not looking to sell him but with troubles mounting they may have to listen to offers. West Ham interest has returned and Arsenal may look again after failing to agree alternatives, but they must now be seen as a wildcard option. Newcastle spoke with Everton in the summer and have failed to sign their primary DM/CM target but could return again this summer. Manchester United had him a long way down their list of targets but failed to sign preferred options in the summer and he may still be of interest, but I rather doubt it. Chelsea interest has gone. Barcelona may look to some horse trading but they have to deal with their own financial issues. Real Madrid may look to a player plus cash deal, but he would largely be used as cover. Another wildcard could be Bayern Munich if the cannot sign Palhinho - but they may have a new coach in the summer. Everton will look to trying to raise £60M.
Manuel Locatelli (DM) Opted to move to Juventus on a two year loan with an obligation to buy deal over the interest of Shakhtar Donetsk and Arsenal in 2021. Arsenal offer him a wildcard option for this summer. Joshua Kimmich (DM/RB) Bayern Munich will now make him available in the summer unless he agrees to a new contract, a significant fee of around €90M would be sought - well beyond what interested sides Barcelona or Manchester City would pay for a 28 year old on €400k per week although Manchester City may well look to find a solution that suits everybody. However, talks have already been held with Al Ahli over a move. A wildcard option would be Manchester United or perhaps Arsenal.
Joao Palhinha (DM/CM) Fulham will not look to sell unless a huge offer is made and the player asks for a move. All interest except that of Bayern Munich, Arsenal and possibly Newcastle will have gone with the signing of a new contract although Manchester United and Liverpool have had a will respected ex PL and high-end independent scout watch the player on their behalf - although both have other targets. Agent has spoken with Manchester City and Chelsea, and either may offer an option. Fulham will still look to replacements as they fear the player could have his head turned by Bayern Munich or Arsenal, who see him as an option to Trindade, who Fulham are also keen on. He will be 29 at the start of next season.
Martin Zubimendi (CM/DM) Barcelona may still look to an offer although they are looking at preferred options first and would likely want to include a player in any deal. Bayern Munich, Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea have sent scouts with Arsenal declaring an interest with his club. Bayern Munich see the cost of his release clause as too high. Real Sociedad may look to refusing a transfer unless his buy out clause is met in full. Player wants Barcelona and may stay another year to try and get a move in 2025.
Hugo Larsson (CM/DM) Youngster who joined Frankfurt in the summer of 2023 from Malmo has attracted scouts from Arsenal and Newcastle. Arsenal may well look to a summer offer but EF will refuse to sell.
Douglas Luiz (CM/DM) No longer an option.
Pablo Maia (DM/CB) No longer an option.
Morten Hjulmand (DM/CM) No longer an option.
Ezequiel Fernandez (DM) No longer and option.}

Great info as always ed.

18 May 2024 23:01:26
Ed002 reports that we are now in pole position to sign sesko and favorites. Any truth?

 0


{Ed002's Note - I can't answer questions about being in "pole position".}

 2


19 May 2024 11:30:06
Ed002 are we likely to get him? Is he now first choice for striker position? Thanks.

 0


{Ed002's Note - 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 but their interest has moved on to another player. Newcastle enquired as they are concerned they will lose Isak - but continue to struggle to sell their project to players and will look to keep hold of Isak over Guimaraes. Chelsea spoke with his agent but have a preferred option who looks likely to join. Milan offer an option as a potential Giroud replacement and they are looking at adding two strikers this coming summer. Arsenal have met with his agent but he appears to only be second choice for them still. A option for Manchester United who need to replace Anthony Martial this summer - but Sesko will not move to simply be cover so that needs to be clarified.}

Hi Ed02 is there any truth in the rumour of Aaron Ramsdale to Newcastle? The reason I ask is because I would have thought Nick Pope was their number one and Ramsdale would be sitting on a different bench . Thanks in advance COYG.

 0


{Ed002's Note - Aaron Ramsdale (G) Ramsdale is stuck rather and needs to figure out his future with Arsenal. Wolves are very concerned about losing Sa and are keen to take Ramsdale to replace him but have other options. Milan are the same with Maignan. Newcastle may offer a good solution that will be of interest to the player. A wildcard could be West Ham.}

 2


18 May 2024 14:09:18
Thanks Ed! Other teams makes sense Newcastle not so much! Have a great weekend COYG.

 0


{Ed002's Note - It will be due to Pope's injury and wanting better options than Dubravka.}

Morning Ed002 - Is Joao Neves a genuine option for Arsenal?

 1


{Ed002's Note - No.}

Do Arsenal need to buy another £100m DM?

 0


10 May 2024 08:34:18
Hi Eds,

Do you know what the position will be with Renato Sanches in the summer/ for next season?

Would there be any Arsenal or PL interest in him?

 0


{Ed002's Note - Renato Sanches (CM) Failed January departure to Besiktas who remain interested. Agent wants a move to England. Will return from PSG to Roma and then be sold - perhaps the Middle East or Turkey.}

 2


13 May 2024 19:51:38
Thanks for the response!

One final question, do you know what the plan is for Sambi Lokonga in the summer? If moving on, is there any interest in a permanent move to anyone?

Wouldn’t mind seeing him get a chance personally.

 1


{Ed002's Note - Albert Sambi Lokonga (DM) Arsenal will be open to letting him move on as part of the summer clear out. I am not aware of any approaches to Arsenal although his agents will be looking for options.}

 2


15 May 2024 00:52:16
Do you expect a lot of changes ED or just a few expensive key signings to build on what we have? Tbf I’m hoping Smith Rowe gets one more season. Think he’s a v decent squad player when fit.

 0


{Ed002's Note - I would expect up to a dozen departures.}

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.

 0


{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.}

 6


01 May 2024 15:43:40
That's brilliant info as always Ed002. Could you tell us the other options Arsenal have apart from Toney like you mentioned?

 0


{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.

Ed002 that is a brilliant update. So much info to take in. Thanks for all the work you do mate. Cheers.

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?

 0


{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.

 1


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

 1


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

Would that be a dream Ed.

 0


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

 1


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.

 0


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

 0


29 Apr 2024 23:41:33
Ed002 is it true we are interested in xavi simons?

 0


{Ed002's Note - Xavi Simons (AM/LW) PSG will talk to the player and assure him of game time and tell him he is not for sale but that may not be enough to convice him to stay. Barcelona would like him back but would need to persuade PSG to take players in exchange. RBL would like another loan which may suit all parties. Arsenal sent scouts but they have other priorities for the summer. Manchester City see him as another potential de Bruyne replacement. Chelsea have spoken with his agent to guage interest and may speak with PSG.}

22 Apr 2024 17:36:49
If the rumours are true we are after a striker midfielder and a winger what is everyone’s realistic choice mine is
ST Gyökeres
CM zubimendi
Winger sane.

 0


23 Apr 2024 12:32:31
Striker - Isak

CM - assuming its to replace Havartz which I personally do not want but I would like Mason Mount at the club. I know a lot will disagree but I think he would excel in this arsenal team.

Winger - LW - any of
Brennan Johnson
Olise
Mitoma (not sure if plays on the left? )
Rafael Leão.

 1


24 Apr 2024 17:59:16
ST - Isak 100
ACM - De Jong 60
WG - Williams 40

and I think we will get Zubimendi 50 to replace Partey/ Jorginho
expecting quite a few sales.

 0


27 Apr 2024 09:23:56
Really wish there was a thumbs down button.

Mount and Brennan? Are you having a laugh?

 8


27 Apr 2024 11:29:47
There used too be thumbs down option but certain members didn’t like it when people put thumbs down on there post so asked for it to be removed, you can obviously guess who they were lol.

28 Apr 2024 07:49:16
I think the dutch market has a lot of value in it. The level is probably better than most people realize, the big clubs aren't as able (or perhaps willing) to hold onto their best players and i think the dutch football philosophy in general suits our style very well. So my pick for midfield would be Mats Wieffer from Feyenoord. Add in Ollie Watkins and we're all set imo. I see Jesus as a utility forward who can cover both wings and striker.

 0


30 Apr 2024 10:26:31
I knew the Mount comment would get some dislike 5kywalker and completely understand why people would.

I just think he could play that Xhaka role really well, he has obviously dropped off massively, but the version that was player of the season 2 years in a row would be amazing in our team.

I actually made a mistake with the Brennon Johnson comment, I was thinking about Gibb's-White. and forgot that Johnson when to the plonkers down the road.

 0


03 May 2024 10:17:41
Would have been funny though if we could have had a thumbs down on the request to remove it though 😂😂.

 0


08 May 2024 09:40:13
I'd like eze can play cm and on the wing st Watkins or gyokeres other cm would be like a pettit type cdm so rice can be box to box.
