Griezmann for Auba? No thanks.
Perhaps if Saka is viewed more as a midfielder, and the club decided they wanted a left-sided forward. But yeah, it doesn't seem an obvious position of need.
He has an interesting profile though. He runs with these really short steps and keeps the ball incredibly close to his feet, then has these bursts of acceleration where he appears to move at double speed. Reminds you a bit of Sterling or Hazard in the way he dribbles. He also looks to be able to cut in and curl shots into the corner. If he can put it all together at a higher level he could be some player.
Don’t know about Boga, he bangs in screamers but some of his basic play is pretty bad.
Saka signed, martinelli signed, reports of Auba next. Mkhi gone.
Raul the Great
Just need Özil gone and already 10/10 summer
sell Lacazette and bring in Thuram 11/10?
Bring in 2 midfielders that can carry the ball b2b 12/10
Posted elsewhere but there really is a case for us selling white a few players outside of them not being good enough. We have way too many defenders in the squad and should sell 3 or 4 really and not be left short.
Makes me more hopeful we can do some business further up the pitch, especially if we augment funds with Guendouzi and Lacazette moving on
Luis, Saliba, Mari and Chambers will be staying as he's returning from injury. Mavropanos got rave reviews on loan it will be interesting to see if Arteta thinks he should be involved with the squad if not loan him to a Bundeliga team. I'd imagine we keep 1 of Holding, Mustafi and Sokratis?
Really dont think we need more than 4 CBs. A case could be made for 5 as Luiz is kind of an extra, squad morale, dressing room presence type guy. Especially if we were to sign someone like Upamecano (unlikely)
Tierney and Xhaka can always fill a hole in an emergency. Should be moving a lot on to allow us to address other areas.
Kolasinac should be moved on too I think. Too expensive for a back up.
We really need to get lean financially
upto 9 players should be leaving.
Luis, Saliba, Mari, Chambers and Holding?
Chambers is coming back from injury so he'll be hard to sell. He's also a utility player that fits multiple positions. If we were to sign Upmecano of Gabriel then Holding should be loaned or sold.
Thing is we've tried to shift Mustafi every summer since he signed with no luck so I think hell stay.
So for me we need to get Sokratis +1 out
So if we can tempt Messi next summer, do you think he’d work well with Aubameyang?
Would never do at cold rainy night in Stoke.
Only that Stoke isn't in EPL anymore
Talk about a win win for you.
Anyway, you think Messi'd dare to come here with Saka in front of him? Messi don't wanna play LWB.
Tough competition with Pepe as well. I’d take a punt on him though, might be good enough for us.
There is reason Pep playing Eric Garcia ahead of Stones. Stones can be perfect if we want to play from the back but he is injury prone and error prone so no for me
I thought this rumour would crop up eventually. He's not in the team at City and there's the Arteta/City connection. Doesn't mean there's any truth to it.
