Ivan, the whole lot of them have talked up how Arsenal can spend big and now with new renewals coming in, the inhouse report on show for everyone to see its clear as day that 100m can be spent. I'd be worried if Arsenal were not looking at more than 1 position. We need a fair few players. I don't care what order they come in as long as they come in!

With regards to this transfer.. he's a real exciting prospect, he's an AM as stated already not a fixed left winger. 11 goals last season and 11 assists. 25m euros is around 20m pounds. I reckon it'll all depend on whether Arsenal can pay around 15m pounds. David Ornstein did say Arsenal are in for an AM which is a position we need to strengthen. This guy could be perfect.

Neither do i. But Im a realist and know there's difference between talk and action. For a club that was gonna spend 70 million, we will have to be very busy second part of the window as we are mid july and hasnt signed anyone


I'm a realist too. Arsenal can spend 100m. Theres no getting around that. Saying well Arsenal seniors are crap we wont do it so lets just get a striker isn't helping anything but papering over the cracks. Push for better or push people out so we can get better.

From this..

David Ornstein ‏@bbcsport_david
Arsenal priority a top cf. Higuain 1st choice & keen. #Afc also want 1 holding + 1 attacking mdf. No df unless any leave. Not in for Rooney.

just a rough example in pounds..

Higuain 25m, Fellaini 23m and Bernard 20m = 68m.

Our biggest weakness is striking position


and AM position


Cazorla and Rosicky plus Wilshere can fill in if needed.

We need a striker first and foremost, followed by a DM and then a solid experienced goalie.

Cazorla is our best option on the left and there's not many better who can play there.
Rosicky is getting older now and will only be able to play only half a season to a high standard (like the last couple of seasons).
Wilsheres best position is CM playing a bit deeper as a bridging midfielder between the DM and AM and was disappointing when playing in CAM last season.
Also in terms of overall creativity, this has been one of our worst seasons as we've over-relied on Cazorla to make chances and winning a lot of matches in scrappy 1-0s. I think CAM is our second most important position after ST.

He's playing with Ronaldinho at Atletico Mineiro so he should pick up some advice and skills from one of the greatest attcking midfielders ever.

Saw him playing for Mineiro many times at the Libertadores Cup, he is a great player small, fast, can drible and can play on both bands. €25 million is a bit pricey but he doesn't look like a possible flop. He plays foward but more like a wing or SS.

I hope it did because in my last game I got Sanogo after development age and he wasn't special. He could become only a backup.

But Sanogo can become one of the best strikers in the world on FM. Literally everyone buys him.

So err is our transfer strategy now: look on FM?

Yeah probably it was me. I got him late and I had a star regen. If I had him since beginning, I could have created a star, like people usually do with Sanogo.

Park is a strange one - every time I've watched him live he's looked fine, not brilliant but no worse than the quality displayed by Chamakh. Obviously there was something wrong with him but I didn't get to find out what.

It's funny you should say that. I had Bernard playing aml, wilshere at amc, and gotze playing amr on my fm13 save. Bernard was by far the best player and scored for fun. Obviously this means nothing in real life but the kid does have a ton of talent lol
