Discussion in 'Transfer Rumours' started by Aevi, Jan 22, 2019.
Do we buy because of the chance to sing the Barry Manilow song, or do we not buy because of the threat of the Barry Manilow song? Some big calls to make here.
Very good passer apparently.
Was just looking at his OptaPro analytics. His distribution numbers are very high.
I've seen him play, of course, but haven't watched him closely enough to have formed a particular opinion. But as I like to say, I'm not a scout anyway and don't pretend to be one on the internet. So if Emery wants this guy, that's good enough for me.
I dont want Mandi. Please dont sign any 'maybe' players at CB. Lets just sign the sure thing and be done with that position for the foreseeable future. Rather than finding ourselves in the same position again in 2 years after having a shocking defence again
Van Dijk was once a maybe player, as was Koscienly.
Is a ‘sure thing’ at centre back really within our budget?
Funny thing, I remember well when Arsenal was linked with Van Dijk in 2015. He was openly excited about possibly moving to Arsenal. But fan reaction to the possibility was quite mixed. A lot of people thought he must not be that good if he played for Celtic in an inferior league. In fact (and I won't call anyone out on this) there are several who still post here regularly who did not want him when he was linked from Southampton in 2017.
Of course as we know now from Celtic assistant coach John Collins, Arsenal turned down the opportunity to sign him in '15 because they thought he was too "nonchalant."
Who's a 'sure thing' CB we could sign?
After watching his performance on the weekend, Tim Ream would be a sure thing. But probably not in the way you mean.
I dont get paid to know the availability or price of good CBs but there are some out there, I'm so sick of signing average defenders. With positions like attack or even midfield you can find gems but at CB we need a dominant experienced player
Then we went on and signed Gabriel instead.
Think any CB we sign will be a risk, unless we get a huge transfer budget in the summer and sign someone with the quality of De Ligt or Koulibaly
I didnt say we need a VVD quality signing though. Just not another player in the 20-30m range who is actually a big risk at that price. You end up shelling big money for someone who sits on that wage and doesnt add enough, we have experienced this issue enough times
Id happily have CB as our only 'major' signing this summer as long as theyre good
Initial loan, with a view to making it permanent in the summer according to the article quoted
Looking at the amount of rumors we are trying to sign from 0 to 6 players
Sick of hearing loan with option to buy.
Good player but I can't see it happening
Is that the paper always linking us to Banega?
Would fit in well being undersized for the position & right footed.
Let me guess he is also a bit **** at defending?
No idea on the player whatsoever, but "undersized" is a bit harsh considering he's 1.85m and with it 1cm taller than Sergio Ramos, which, as I can remember, has been considered best CB in the world by a lot of people over the last years.
Is he RB or CB? would prefer RB this month myself
