If Ornstein is saying it's getting difficult then it's pretty much dead.

I don't see us having the will or muscle power to resolve it.

Monaco will simply ignore and laugh at our final bid and we will call it a day.

We will probably make our trademark desperate signing and declare Lacazette + Saed + random guy as successful transfer window when in reality it barely moves us at all against the other teams that will kick us out of the top 4 again.

Depressing.

this was never happening. Arsenal can only sign from big clubs when they want to sell like ozil, sanchez and lacazette

Monaco has some really good young players.

They will laugh at Theo during practice sessions.

still seems up in the air... though one can see where Monaco would resist a TOTAL raid on their club...

the amount for bayakoko is way high..... evrtton and chlski f***ing up the transfer market.

Lacazette and Kolsanic. Thats a realistic summer for us so im not surprised.

Anymore would be a bonus.
Lacazette --Auba -- new right winger

Saying we could of this and that... is bs.... unless you've worked in player acquisition and contracts in the EPL....

The spine of our team is not good enough to win the league. We have an ailing Cech in goal. And our defence?

Mertesacker - coming back off a year out and retiring anyway
Kos - declining, dodgy long passing, weak in the air and makes boneheaded decisions in one-on-one situations
Holding - very young, inexperienced and unproven over consistent period
Chambers - also inexperienced & very young with only 1 season of first team football
Mustafi - still finding his feet, dives in too much and erratic
Gabriel - see above without the 'finding his feet' part. Also regularly injured

6 centre backs none of whom are world class IMO.

Then there's our centre midfield options.

Coquelin - tactically naïve and technically lacking. Went off the boil last season
Ramsey - useless defensively and slow to release the ball offensively. His only purpose is scoring goals.
Xhaka - Much better in a 3-5-2 but runs in quicksand and needs a mobile partner. Guaranteed to miss games through suspension
Cazorla - Nobody knows whether he'll return to his level or if he'll return at all. Questionable if he can play with Xhaka
Ox - Capable but inconsistent. Largely down to being used in so many different positions
Elneny - Jack of all trades but master of none. Carbon copy of Flamini
Wilshere - Talented but perennially injured, and will probably be sold. Hasn't developed
Maitland-Niles - Looks raw and not yet ready. Joe Willock looking more deserving of a first team squad place. Both inexperienced at this level

Again nobody remotely close to world class.

We have a lot of average players in critical positions, so to me Lemar, as talented as he is, is not going to take us to the next level. We conceded 44 goals last season, and a large part of that is we need to use numbers to defend because we don't have enough individual defensive quality and physicality.

Starting to worry that Laca will be our only big money transfer this summer. Would be typical Arsenal!!


Well why do we need a winger when we can keep Giroud up front and turn Lacazette into a winger?

Wins all round right?

In seriousness though if we're going to miss Lemar this year then keep Sanchez and buy Mahrez who has one foot out the door.
