Who would you prefer we signed?

  1. Denis Suarez

  2. Yannick Carrasco

    Aubameyang - Özil - Pepe
    Would be a filthy front four if Özil starts to show some consistency again.

    We've had 3 of these players and Mkhitaryn since last January. On paper, it should have been the most fearsome attack in the league - it hasn't been.

    Pepe looks interesting, very risky though. He isn't an Essien, Hazard or Lacazette coming out of the French league.

    P.S. We can't swap Ramsey for Benatia, without bringing a midfielder in, as we're light.

    We're not light on midfielders, we have Xhaka, douzi, Torreira, AMN, Willock and Elneny at a push, thats 6 players for two positions, besides which Ramsey spent most of his time at AM this season and we have Özil/Mhki and Iwobi capable of covering those spots.

    I'd say the only position we are genuinely light on numbers is wingers on either side, every other position has two players viable for its position.

    I totally agree.
    And before all that ramsey and suarez talks before the transfer window i think the most people here agreed too.
    Wasnt there a poll here that showed most of us wanted a winger (lack of players) or/and a defender (lack of talent in squad) ?

    Given the way we have defended I don't think we have that in our cb stable

    How many times have we seen that lineup? How many matches consecutively?

    Maybe we could loan a manager.

    Not many. I really don't get why? Attack can be the best form of defence.

    The manager is fine, we need more quality. And I really don’t rate Ramsey that high but we needed the old management to have signed him much earlier so that we could recoup some funds for him if needed. We need there to be money for transfers to improve the squad, and then do so in a calculated and methodical way. Unai needs some more transfer windows and squad turnover to be properly judged. People seem to forget how well we were playing until recently. And I’m not an Emery apologist. Just give the man some time.

    Agree with all your points except Ramsey. I think he's a really good player, not world class, but quality I think we will miss if not replaced properly

    Ramsey is one of the best at making those late runs into the box and when he’s on, he can be a very influential player. Can’t dispute the value he gives to a team but I see him as more of a finishing piece, not a necessary one. I’m sure Juve will be happy with him tho no doubt. I’m hoping that we can bring Suarez in cause I think he’s an underrated talent.

    I agree, we could hardly be worse swapping iwobi for Özil and give it a few games at least

    Our best players definitely need to be on the pitch.

    Pepe is a massive talent. I would argue that if he is not at the Hazard level at the same age, he is not that far behind.
    At this stage, he is being targeted by bigger clubs than Arsenal and we can forget about him. They are talking about a fee between 75 and 80M for him this summer.

    I can safely assume we have not seen the same Pepe. Comparing him to Iwobi is a bad joke.

    Pulisic is the only player they've purchased, and he's not to join them until the Summer. Plenty of time for them to work on squad registration issues. Now, if they actually sell Hudson-Odoi and add Higuain during this window, then what you're saying is more valid. But those have only been rumors so far.

    I think Roman is somewhat aware.

    Except for maybe torreira none are Good enough to be the core of our midfield.
