    Genuinely prefer Luiz. No doubt Upamechano can be a monster defender, but we need leadership and experience, which Luiz provides.

    Maybe we come back next summer, or maybe one of Holding or Chambers step up and Salibah slides in.

    They can do one with Smith-Rowe as well. Pay us 5m to loan him and his value will shoot up to 50m. You can bid 80m for him next summer.

    Should be doing a Tyrion like trial speech.

    I saved all of your worthless lifes from CIES and Kroenke propaganda and all I'm seeing is ungratefulness. Disappointed is an understatement.

    Was hoping we'd make a play on Upamecano.

    He would be super expensive, terrible value for money considering his injury record and we do not need him when we have Saiba coming in next summer. Plus if we want to sign a center back from Leipzig we should sign Konaté instead.

    Mods won’t open his thread in the transfer forum but madness man is making big claims:

    If Dean says Upamecano is coming to Arsenal then he's coming.

    Has Dean called anything in past year or two that wasn't already obvious?

    I haven't really paid much attention to him in recent years but @say yes remains a big fan, maybe he can recall what Dean has got right.

    From what I've read his contract expires 2021 and Leipzig are worried about losing him on a free. I guess the player is in a good position to push for a move in Jan or next summer. I would love him at Arsenal, him Holding & Saliba would be a great future.

    Saw some highlights of him from this weekend and he looked pretty dodgy.

    Could be a good player, but shelling out 50M for him now and expecting him to transform the defence can only lead to disappointment.

    GDeep™ Wrong, But Rarely

    Would we be expecting him to transform the defence or just develop alongside Saliba in the short term?

    Good “build a new team” type signing.

    He's a young defender. He's certainly not gonna transform us in the short term. I think the reason we brought in an experienced head like Luiz is that if we do play some of the younger CB's they'll have some real experience alongside them.

    Love the idea of Upamecano, Saliba, Holding, Chambers, and Mavropanos. Great set of options and overall depth.
