    Aouar is absolutely perfect for our needs, it's also really hard to imagine any other player that would replace this exciting signing.

    As much as we all think it should be Aouar and Partey, I'd take Aouar only now, just to have this done. We are taking big risks.

    Him and Partey is a must we going abslout nowhere with current player Ceballos and Xhaka and basically deep central midfielders they add so little going forward

    Ya really gotta wonder why we aren’t submitting an offer of 40-42M + 3-5M in add-ons or so. Not my money but my viewing pleasure, DO IT ARSENAL!

    Definetely, but I've currently got bigger worries of losing out on Aouar because of a few million that we need to do both.

    For now we need to focus getting Aouar the Partey deal is complicated if we couldn't buy him there will be backup

    I’m really not thinking Arsenal ever had the cash to pay the Partey RC upfront. They wouldn’t be leaving it this late if they had. I think they tried to talk to Athleti about doing a deal (including with Torreira) and without a deal they would just move Torreira to make room for Aouar. Really doubt paying the whole RC up front was ever in the cards.

    I understand the reasoning -Covid provides the rare opportunity to dramatically upgrade the team but that is only because teams are suffering the same pressures that Arsenal are also feeling. Could be quite some time still until the stadiums are full.
     
  7. I hope we aren’t expecting this lad to change the team. Only so much one man can do in a team full of dross. This project is going to take years before we see the standard of football we used to play.

    Not really bothered about this signing. Ceballos and Elneny got it on lock.

    Maybe the Partey deal is complicated like many said but Aouar alone won't solve most of our problems

    A loan with an obligation for another loan followed by an option to buy would be nice.

    I don’t disagree. Just doesn’t look like the team had/wanted to spend the upfront cash the Partey RC demanded. I mean, I’m happy to be wrong.

    Even if failed to get Partey I'm sure there will backup options our midfield currently short on numbers and quality Torreira gone Guendouzi very likely too and we only left with 4 meaning 1 injury away for Xhaka or Ceballos and we in mess

    People have requested threads exclusively for updates for years...

    I think they'd be very useful so we could read them without dredging through dross...

    That kind of thread would keep the trolls away but the mods refuse to stop the troll army for some reason.

    Then people would spend far less time on here, which means less exposure to advertising. Doubt it would happen

    Having watched Doucoure in the PL for a few years and seeing him at Everton i cant understand why we never made a move for him this summer. Hes not world class level but hes can tackle, carry the ball, break up play and is mobile. Hes strong and athletic and everything we need. 27, PL proven and went for 20m. Which is nothing.

    Him alongside Xhaka and then an Aouar type attacking would be better than what we have now.

    Don't like the sounds coming out from PSG. This is why you don't leave your most important signings so late.
