Arteta and Edu Transfer Targets: Summer 2020

Discussion in 'Transfer Rumours' started by DanDare, Feb 3, 2020.


Which signing would you prioritize of the two?

  1. Partey

  2. Aouar

    How do you know he's more press resistant? The only clips I've found of him are of him playing in the Eredivisie with him spraying passes with basically no pressure on the ball whatsoever. Xhaka would probably look press resistant in the Eredivisie.

    He said it would be frees and loans unless they can generate money through sales. Don't see that as outlandish, they'll have to make that money up just like they did last summer.

    Is he, though? The press in the Dutch league is entirely different than the press in the Prem. Eredivisie is notorious for being weak defensively.

    He is technically superior to Xhaka on the ball. It's not about the amount of pressure in the league, it's about the ability on the ball.

    Xhaka cannot turn under pressure, especially outside and when he turns with the inside of his foot, which is very rare he tries nutmeg. Being able to turn on the outside is the way you evade a press. Fabregas was excellent at it, as was Xavi and Iniesta. Santi has an excellent double touch and can go either way.

    Koopemeiners isn't on their level, but he is much more aware and comfortable in crowd scenes than Xhaka.

    4.34 onwards.

    We’ve already saved a decent amount of money with the wage cuts and Mkhitaryan going (around £33m). We’ll get another couple of million from Liverpool for Ox and bellend Benge was saying we’ll get £2m from Mavididi’s sale to Montpellier. That’s a decent amount of money that will cover a big chunk of any losses we’re forecast to make. I think we should be able to do decent business if we sell Guendouzi and a couple of others. I could see us getting Partey and a decent CB.

    Saw a link to Depay somewhere. I wonder if Laca goes if he might be great idea to put him in the middle or on the left of Auba and Pepe. Now that's a player who's played comfortably through the middle or the left switching around pretty comfortably. If Arteta's idea is to play an interchanging multi dimensional front three I'm all for that.

    Messi wants out in 2021. Think we’d be in with a shot imo. Raul connection.

    Messi to Italy seems more likely but if in England could see him either go to City or United.

    Would LOVE it if he does leave at this time though. Barcelona look horrendous without him.

    He does seem a bit more physically and technically able than Xhaka to me too but looks a very system player. I don't see him fitting in a midfield 3 all that well but he seems more like a CB to me in 3 man back line. Good organizing ability, reading of the game, leadership and great range.

    Isn't every year Spanish media said the same?

    Should we try to nab(y) Keita when Thiago signs for Pool? Or try to bring Ox back?

    Definitely not this.

    Keita could be interesting...isn't he more of a Pep playmaker, rather than a Klopp warhorse...might suit Arteta's football more.

    That would be like robbing a bank and then driving straight to the police station.

    This is all nothing new and has been said or done by Emery too as well as managers everywhere else. :lol: Its just people have a different perception of Arteta and backed the idea so much now every little thing people try and spin it into something beyond the regular.

    Yeah, lets hope so. Unlike with Emery I hope we go with Arteta's plan and choices. The way Arteta has been communicating it seems likely that might happen.

    No thanks
    Selling Ox is probably our best piece of business for a long time
