I've got it on good authority that Kolasnic to Leverkusen is a done deal! Finally!

Hi Ed,

I know this is discussed to death, but the stories of Juve having bid for Aouar. Have we missed out?


{Ed002's Note - The situation is as I have explained Alex.}

Ok, then I'm relieved, as you've said he isn't first choice for them.

Hey ED, is there any truth in the Ali and Jorginho links with us? I can’t think it to be true, surely just papers and journalists trying to unsettle clubs for £.

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what these rumours are. I have answered about Jorginho already.}

Hi Eds,

is there any truth in the following outgoing rumours:

Mustafi to Lazio
Chambers to West Ham or Fulham
Kolasinac to West Ham or Leverkusen


{Ed002's Note - yes, unclear, BL remain keen}

Looks pretty certain Torriera is off to Athletico, let’s just hope it happens in time to get a top quality DM in.

Hopefully it involves Partey coming in opposit direction 373 mate.

My crystal ball tells me this is the case 😜.

Apparently we’ve been told there’s no part exchange, Torriera is a loan and if you want Partey then it’s 45m or nothing. I feel we will put a bid in for £1 to test the nothing side of the argument.

Latest word is Arsenal won’t loan and Atleti are trying to sell Herrera so they can buy Torreira. If the deal shakes down like that then it’s a clear Aouar is currently the #1 target.

Apparently Atletico can only spend 25% of any transfer fee they receive on their own transfers, so if we were to offer 25m euro + Torreira for Partey then Atletico would only be able to spend just over 6m of this. However, if we pay the full 50m euros for Partey, because it would be used by him to pay out his release clause (and therefore doesn't count as an official transfer fee) then Atletico would be able to use all of this for transfers should they wish. This is apparently why they wouldn't be willing to accept a player-plus-cash deal for Partey.

This also makes me think that Aouar is now the top priority. If Partey was our top priority, surely we would be happy to meet his release clause first, allowing atletico to then sign Torreira?

I must add the above information was provided by an Atletico fan on twitter, so the reliability isn't the greatest, but it does seem like a very logical reason as to why Atletico are not interested in a Torreira plus cash deal, which on the surface seems logical.

I had read something similar to Colney Bandit's appraisal of Atletico's current situation. This then begs two questions;

1 - How / Why is this our problem? If they can't pay for Torriera should we not try to sell him elsewhere? Or if the Italian clubs are also only interested in loaning him also, should we not just loan him to Italy and leave Atletico do one? Do we feel that they have been difficult to deal with over Partey and therfore they don't deserve our patience?


2 - Bearing in mind that Edu and Mikel are not totally stupid - Are we resisting the loan offers from Italy (where torriera would love to return to) and persevering with Atletico and all their issues because there is still a way to lessen the impact of this 25% rule and somehow still tie Torriera in to a Partey deal.

Personally I think that option 2 above is still on the table to some extent as otherwise we would have let him go to Italy by now.

I hope I am even partially correct as Mikel obviously does not fancy Lucas and we could really do with Partey.

{Ed002's Note - Atletico Madrid have not been difficult at all. It seems that the arrogance of Arsenal supporters might well be the issue.}

I think the issue is we need to either sell Torriera or loan him with obligation to buy in order to pursue Partey or Aouar. Atletico are supposedly trying to get him on a loan with option to buy because they don't have the money to buy this season unless they offload another player (I've heard they are looking to sell a different CM to Partey to fund the move) . They apparently also now believe that Partey would be willing to stay even if we were to trigger his release clause.

Surely Torreira would also rather join Atletico over Torino as they regularly get champions league football, and IMO he would fit into their midfield and style of play perfectly.

It will be interesting to see how this pans out - however it would've been nice to have a new CM before the Liverpool game as I think we will be completely overran in midfield now.

Has Partey ever said he wanted to leave? Amongst the many many rumours I've not seen one where Partey has actually said he wants to leave Athletico. With all the buzz about what clubs want and what clubs are prepared to offer or accept the players feelings and opinions seem to get totally forgotten, which is strange when without their agreement everything else is totally irrelevant.

This is now taking the biscuit! Which one of you arrogant feckers is responsible for getting involved in the Partey transfer and screwing it up?

Update from Fabrizio Romano:

"Lucas Torreira has agreed personal terms with Atletico Madrid. He wants to join but an agreement with Arsenal hasn't been reached yet. AM need to sell Hector Herrera first to sign Torreira".

Hi Ed’s it seems common knowledge we are interested at least in Aouar and Partey. Would be interested to know if any other teams if any are talking to Lyon and Atletico? COYG.

{Ed002's Note - Juventus and PSG have enquired after Partey but neither see value in the fixed price. Aouar remains of interest to Manchester City but he is not first choice, as do Juventus but the interest of Barcelona and Chelsea will have gone unless. PSG might be interested as an alternative to Lucas Paqueta but might want to wait to their managerial situation is resolved first.Other interest can be forgotten.}

Thanks Ed! Good to see some top top teams interested. Fingers crossed for one or both provided we sell COYG.

I heard that regarding Partey, obv we don’t want to spend his buy out clause, so we’re playing hard ball. If they don’t work with us with the price we’ll buy full price last minute and they won’t have time to replace as it’s clear he wants to move on. could be a load of BS. thoughts?

{Ed002's Note - Just makes Arsenal look even more of a bunch of jerks.}

Just seen Sami Khedira has been mentioned as a possibility. Any thoughts?

Is he still playing? We were linked with him back in 2014 because he's Mesuts mate, he must be in his 50s now? So yes it's a possibility 😀.

Juve trying to get rid of him for a while now but no takers, so no thanks he's not the same player he was before.
