Don't really know much about Aidoo tbh. I'd go for someone with a higher profile and experience tbh.Just recently had a look at La Liga CBs and Joseph Aidoo from Celta Vigo seems a neat target. Perfect age and an interesting profile going by stats. He's defensively apt, solid in the air and while playing in a more defensive team still alright in terms of passing and progressing the ball. Could be a nice little bargain for maybe 15m and I guess there's ample room for him to still develop in a better and more offensive team.
Mari cost £4M. Saliba, despite not getting a chance yet, has massive potential and only 19 (people seem to forget that) and Gabriel looks like he has genuine world class potential, so I don't see what you're getting at?We bought Mari a CB. We bought Saliba a CB. We bought Gabriel a CB and now we are going to buy another CB? Just seems we are doing what we did before buy a collection of CB and in the end instead of having 2/3 top centre backs we will have about 8 middle of the road.

Konate would be on the same level as Gabriel here.
Gabriel, Saliba and Konate is 3 CB's with top quality potential, it's hardly Mustafi, Chambers and Holding level.
Hm I mean Konate is really cool, but do we need him?
Well currently our two senior RCB options are an aging Luiz and Holding. And neither seem to have nailed down the position as Arteta keeps swapping them. Going forward we'll definitely need another CB option. Whether Saliba is ready or whether we need to sign one, who knows.
EDIT: Also judging by the reports following up on interest depends on if Luiz leaves which makes sense.
Still feels like there's more of a chance, if decent offers come in, that the club will sell both Mavro and Saliba and invest that money in Konate.As others have said, the smart thing to do is the give Saliba or even Mavro a chance, we need to be smart with the money we have and how we spend it...we are Arsenal though, so we won't be smart
