    I'd like to see Laca, Xhaka, Mustafi, Chambers, Sokratis & Kola sold in Jan. The latter 2 we can give away if need be.

    As a half Hungarian I'm all on the Szsoboslai train however not sure if the interest is legit, he was there to be got this summer, AC Milan were signing him but pulled the plug when the management scenario got weird.

    If we really wanted him I think it would have been done but hopefully I'm wrong, also somewhat surprised he is still at Salzburg in general, maybe clubs are waiting to see how he performs in the CL.

    i think he said he wanted to stay at Salzburg 1 more year after the Milan deal collapsed

    If a club came in he would have went in my opinion.

    Calling all retired Brazilians!

    Please form an orderly line in front of Edu's office....

    Makes sense, Leipzig are part of the reason I have doubts we will sign him, the summer just gone seemed to have been the one where he was available and at a decent price, now the two Red Bull teams will discuss which players will go from Salzburg to Leipzig, I imagine Szsoboslai will be one.

    If Salzburg sell to Leipzig he will then be in a bigger shop window and if he performs his value will probably double, works for RB.

    Is Gabriel a retired Brazilian? Interesting.

    What if you form the opinion with stats then watch the player/team to reinforce that? Does the order matter?

    he wasn't brought by Edu, though. We had been scouting him for a long time.

    Former head of recruitment Francis Cagigao, senior scout Brian McDermott and Ty Gooden, who headed up Arsenal’s scouting operations in France, were all key to ensuring that Gabriel was the centre-back that Raul Sanllehi, who has now also left the club, and Edu focused their attention on.

    There were others that Arsenal looked at, including Axel Disasi, who eventually joined Monaco from Reims, and free agent Malang Sarr, but Gabriel was the name at the top of the scouts' list that was submitted to the hierarchy when they were putting their plans together for the summer window, just as William Saliba had been the previous year.

    Lol. Was Cagigao the one negotiating with Lille and seeing it through while being jobless? Bro some of you will find a fault in everything the club does.

    I have my doubts about Edu and the scraping of scouts but saying Edu didnt buy well this summer is a farce.
    Sporting directors need to be judged on what they have done long term (3-5 years) and its just too early to make an judgement on Edu

    True..under the circumstances this summer has been pretty solid and I will give Edu full marks for delivering 2 players (Gabriel and Partey) who will transform this squad. Also, Willian for me is a decent signing and we will get to know by the end of the season how worthy he has been.

    Who was it that said Auba signing up isn't a factor in attracting players to the club? Partey saying that's one of the reasons why he joined. Who's bottom of the barrel here.

    That's actually not bad, a young CB like Gabriel even 23 is relatively cheap & technically, only paying 5 for him straight up you could almost saying is close to a bargain for him imo.

    Most deals are spread over years

    All deals are amalgamated for accounts but different amounts of cash will change hands depending on what the clubs agree on.

    United paid 80m up front for Maguire for example.

    Knowing the way Ashley operates this new deal probably has a release clause in it
