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.
Cheers.

{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.

Cheers Ed. Appreciate the work and prompt reply. 👌💯.

Hey Ed 002,
I know you don't like to speculate but could you give some insight into whether Arsenal are still actually looking to strengthen in these positions, GK, RB, CM or Striker?
If so, would you have any idea of who they are realistically targeting at this point?
Appreciate your time 👌.

{Ed002's Note - I don't think there is anything new in terms of targets and the club certainly want to add a G like Onana, a RB like Aarons or Dest, a midfield player, perhaps an AM rather than a CM, and a Striker. Serious efforts are being made to sell players.}


1.) 05 Aug 2021 15:04:15
Appreciate the insight and quick response Ed. 👌💯.


2.) 05 Aug 2021 15:12:58
Interesting Ed, do you think it's just the market in which it is tough to sell and basically find buyers willing to pay bare minimum or Arsenal are simply not good in selling these players? Because the reports suggest enough interest in few of these players we want to sell.

{Ed002's Note - The Xhaka deal was killed by Arsenal asking too much. There are huge efforts being made to try and sell players now.}

Ed has/ is Declan Rice been of interest to Arsenal?
Think he’d be perfect for us.

{Ed002's Note - No.}


4.) 05 Aug 2021 20:46:53
Dammit!
Thanks for the quick response Ed 🤙🏼.

Music to my ears Ed, you mentioning Onana. These Ramsdale links are keeping me up at night. I just can’t see what the appeal is. For me he’s Kepa on his worst days.

{Ed002's Note - Onana is an option but there remains the interest of another side who would likely be more attractive to the player - hence the Ramsdale option.}

Well Ed hope your weekends going well.
Just want to tap into your potential knowledge on something that's been annoying me.
Regarding Willian.

I don’t see it.
I think he’s lacking aggression in his game to influence at the highest level and it’s a reason he hasn’t caught Ancelottis eye at a time when Madrid are wanting to keep the best they have as they are not in a position to spend.
I think it’s lazy by Arteta and Edu if we do indeed make the signing and I think it’s a massive risk at all round.

Odegaard seemed very passive to me while here.
Doesn’t exactly grab a game by the scruff and I absolutely don’t trust Artetas judgement when it comes to identifying players to do certain jobs.
But maybe there’s a player there 🤷🏼‍♂️.

I too have to hold my hands up on Ramsdale. I wasn’t at all happy going ahead with Leno and I thought Ramsdale signing and fee was outrageous for a player to come in as a back up. But I think a lot of that was driven by the anger of allowing Martinez to leave.
Looking at it now Ramsdale is epitomising what it means to play for Arsenal and his attitude is rubbing off on fans and players alike. Been a long time since I’ve connected with an Arsenal player like that and I’m sure many feel the same.
Odegaard I’m still very underwhelmed with I’ve said it a dozen times here he is far too passive but I hope the penny drops soon for him because his game desperately needs some cut and thrust.
Arteta i'm still on the fence with regarding making big decisions in the big moments and also when it comes to man managing and giving players opportunities to get a run of form going. He got it absolutely spot on vs Leicester tho so I’m happy to be proven wrong.

What we need is a manager with vision, experience and know how.
How we are talking about whether a young player can or will score twenty goals a season Ox instead of looking at the bigger picture is irritating to me.
Right now a combination of Auba, Lacca, Eddie, Martinelli and Balogun will not score 20 between them in a season with the way we are set up to play.
He has drained every one of our attackers of all confidence. Every single offensive player.
While he adopts a playing style that covers up for the shortcomings of players like Xhaka.
Arteta and Edu need to go.
