Perhaps the club is exploring such options. We don’t know yet. Or maybe they are looking at loan deals like Wijnaldum. Which would be a decent stop gap solution.

The point I don’t get is with regards to Auba. We are certainly not going to get a top center forward in January. We rejected the chance to give Laca and Nketiah long term deals. So why did we alienate our one senior striker with a long term deal? Is it more important to make a point to the squad about tardiness or is it more important to have options till the end of the season? If Arteta had enough of Auba could he not have waited till the summer to boot him out?


We can make up for it if we sign Vlahovic. He was a summer target and it may be best for us to try and convince players to move in January instead of summer. Way more competition for signings during the summer and we'd be at a disadvantage if we don’t make Top 4.

So how do you convince him to move right now when he can move in summer to clubs that have secured CL? And how do you convince Fiorentina to sell mid season when they could get the same amount or more for him in summer?

The only two quality strikers that I remember moving in winter were Adebayor to us and Suarez to Liverpool. I literally cannot think of another of the top of my head.


Aubameyang as well.

If the reports are true about the club wanting a large fee up front, the player wanting the move but it's the agent holding it up because he wants a large fee as well, we have the answer. We'll have to pay up.

Because money is tight for most clubs during the pandemic, there are no guarantees they will be able to get this sort of money elsewhere. I think they're willing to play ball if the money is right. Biggest sticking point is the player and if he's willing to move in the winter, then it's just on us to pay up along with the fee to the agent if we want him bad enough.

Gone are the days where our rep would have players pushing to move to us and willing to compromise to make a deal happen. I don't fancy our chances in the summer when swimming with the big fish. Fiorentina could hold out for the summer for the bigger clubs but as said, the bigger clubs may not want to pay as much and can always unsettle the player to try and force a move.

Oh blimey how did I forget Auba. That was staring me right in the face. And Arshavin come to think of it.


Yeah, Arshavin was a good one. I was just thinking of strikers but Reyes was also a good one too. RIP.

We've signed the same amount as Man City, Liverpool, Man Utd, Chelsea, Tottenham, West Ham, Leicester, Palace, Southampton, Burnley and Norwich.

That's not what I asked. :doh:


Look up how many they've signed and you'll get your answer.

Arsenal have a seven-man list of targets which includes midfielders such as Leicester's Youri Tielemans, 24, Paris St-Germain's Georginio Wijnaldum, 31, and Lyon's Bruno Guimaraes, 24. (Mirror)

Wijnaldum on loan and then wait for the summer would be my preference.

Definitely take him on pay as you play. He's better than Xhaka and Lokonga. We are now desperate for a quick fix in CM.
Still need to sign a long term option as well though

mmmm won't cost us a lot then, he is injury prone and will spend most of the time on the physio's table. :)

Wilshere can't play in our deep midfield pair, they are supposed to be the anchor of our team, Wilshere would get run over.

Jack is more a CAM type, closer to ESR than anyone else, in fact ESR is highly similar to a young Jack Wilshere.

Not sure what Wilshere you remember? Jack was more of a proper CM, he was never quick enough to play the CAM role from what I can remember. He used to collect the ball from deep and start the play forward, or start intricate play from outside the opposition box when we were in the final 3rd.

Watch YouTube. Most of the time he was in CM

Don’t think we really NEED him but as a bonus attacker he wouldn’t be a bad option. Doubt barca want another loan though.



Another mistake not getting him
