Not sure we need a tall physical striker. Looking at how top tier football is going.

We need 6 fast, powerful, intense, hardworking, clever, technical capable goal threats. Because of injuries. But mainly so you can change pace at the 65 min when the defense tire out.

Martinelli, Saka, maybe Smith Rowe.

and Nkunko, Jesus, Gnabry?

Probably only afford two

Taller more physical strikers can be hardworking, clever, powerful and relatively fast too. You need to have more than one option and someone who can battle with defenders physically while doing some of the other stuff would be ideal.

It also means when plan A isn't working you have a plan B. Something we have lacked this season.

I can't shake this feeling that Gnabry will end up at Liverpool or Chelsea this summer. I can see a scenario where Salah goes to Madrid after Perez misses out on Halaand and Mbappe. Then Liverpool will target Gnabry. Tbh, the German is probably one of the best replacements for Salah and on his final year of his contract I doubt it will cost too much.
I'll be really sad if that happen. I always thought wenger did make mistake selling him quickly he need to comeback.

Yeah, was going to say exactly this. Might not even have to be that creative, but more of an 8 than a 6. Aouar for the rumoured €15m seems like a no brainer.

We need more creativity. We only really have Ødegaard that can break the lines and play that killer pass in this team.

I don’t know if you watched us play, but we cross more than any of the top 6. You can’t play Arteta football with pep size players

Jesus and Scamacca are my two preferred strikers if we sign two - completely different styles, and to your point, if plan A isn't working then there's the plan B.

Neves makes the most sense again this summer for the midfield. Can play with Partey or instead of Partey in the single pivot if he is injured or suspended, however the midfield target looks to be Tielemans who will lead us on all summer hoping for a move to a CL club. If we were in CL we could hope for Jesus and Gnabry but I dont think Gnabry will be willing to move to a non-CL club unless theres a lot of money involved.

I think we're getting Jesus, Hickey and one midfielder. Were almost definitely gonna try and resign Nketiah, if we cant we might get some relatively unknown winger/forward option.

If we were to throw money at Gnabry and also bring in Jesus, Neves and Hickey we would surely be favourites for a top 4 spot and for the EL.

I think having 1 striker that’s good in the air is huge weapon. People want us to become a copy of city with lesser players which means we can never beat them and Liverpool. Tottenham give them fits because they are set up different and don’t follow there is only one way to play football and it’s their way

100 per cent. The difference with us compared to most other teams in the league is that we can put some actual quality behind the giant up front. Jesus and Scamacca, plus a good midfielder or two, completely changes the equation for us. I mean who's 6'6 and above really?

The relegated teams usually have a few good players but it's pretty slim pickings this year.

Aarons, Cornet, Collins, McNeil, Roberts, Pedro, Dennis, Sarr, have I missed any?

None of them really doing anything for me except maybe Roberts, I think he us really underrated, decent defender and has a massive engine, better than Cedric and Aarons in my opinion. I think McNeil is a decent footballer but we have absolutely no need for a left winger.

I'd take Sarr as a Pépé replacement if we sell him.

He’s spot on. This would be a really good window imo.

That would address a lot of our weaknesses but Galaxy brain wouldn’t do it.
That's a good window for sure. Abraham, Nkunku and Bissouma would all be great signings. I wonder a bit whether Spence is getting over-hyped a bit though. Good performance against us no doubt but not sure he's a PL world beater. Hickey looks interesting though.

Expect many "exclusives" from this prat in the summer.

No more talk. "This Summer there are many surprises," "Expect big signings," "Gonna do the business" "blah blah blah." Just ****ing do it. We are the best at hyping up **** that never comes to be. Sick of it, especially after our finish.

None of those for me, apart from maybe Cornet. Certainly none of the defenders..
 

Arsenal Quotes

A team can attack for too long. The most opportune time for scoring is immediately after repelling an attack, because opponents are then strung out in the wrong half of the field. All the men are expected to play to plan, but not so as to stifle individuality
