    He's got a year and a half on his deal and he's ancient and washed up. You don't let him have final say on players anymore. There are plenty of very successful clubs who rely on a DOF and their trophy cases look better than ours. And in fact I've seen plenty of Wenger apologists like yourself suggest that he's got too much on his plate (among a myriad of other excuses for his horrendous performance) so taking some "powers" away from him at this stage is probably for the best if we're being honest with ourselves. Wenger should be treated like every other manager in the world, subordinate and expendable. The club is much larger than any one man no matter how much people like yourself who think that the club was established in 1997 believe otherwise.

    Slightly off topic but in a way related. Just read that the English transfer window runs from June 9th to August 9th, so with the World Cup taking place the window for signing players is going to be quite limited this summer. We need to be identifying and signing targets early doors.

    This is the type of signing we should be making if we seriously want to compete at the highest level. Oblak is one of the best goalkeepers in the world. Certainly makes the top 5 list of any sensible European football connoisseur. There are no clubs bigger than Arsenal genuinely considering signing a new keeper. We clearly need a replacement for Čech so can guarantee first-team football. Our wage offer could probably double his current salary. Atlético are plateauing and do not possess the financial clout to reject a considerable offer. We should go out there. Bid big and get it done quickly. Send a message to Europe that there is a new Arsenal in the market.

    He got such huge release clause I think. A.Madrid in no position to sell too.

    How much is it? 50m would do it imo

    Well said. This is a long term investment which could potentially solve our GK position for 10-15 years, that in itself is worth paying an astronomical amount. It been far too long since Arsenal last had a reliable and incredibly talented keeper, Wojceich had the talent but wasn't always reliable and the less said about others since Jens the better.

    Also I don't think paying a huge amount for a GK (Oblak) really impacts our summer budget. The two defenders we're looking at are Evans and Diallo who combined could probably be had for 20-30m depending on relegation. Meyer could be had for free in we're indeed interested in him and Malcom/Pavon could be had for around 30-35m. It is also worth remembering that the earlier you do deals, generally speaking the cheaper the deal is so hopefully with this new transfer team we have, deals can be achieved early in the window.

    Oblak release clause is 90M pounds.

    And no way we're spending that much on a keeper.

    With the likes of PSG looking for a GK no way Atletico would sell for less than his release clause.

    We have to be smart getting GK. Keepers like Butland and Horn are both better than cech and will cost less than 30M

    I don't think Butland would go for that cheap since he's a HG keeper.
    We have a very poor record with GK tbf.

    Maybe there's also a coaching issue. Why Szczesny & Fabianski look so much better playing in other teams?
    I've already heard rumours saying our GK coaches were poor. I don't know if it's true though.

    Maybe Arsenal will go after the second best goalkeeper in the Premier League this year (at least in terms of saves per goal) -- Nick Pope!

    I hear his distribution is absolute gash though.

    It's not the best. Even worse than Oblak's, which is pretty bad. But it's a great story, though. He's been better than anyone could have imagined.

    I would be so hyped if we signed Oblak, one of the worlds top 3 goalkeepers, absolutely superb keeper. But with a £90M release clause it would seem our chances are very, very slim.

    Özil-esque signing if this happens though, it would be that good.

    You can sign a player for below his release clause. It's just a legal formality Spanish teams must comply with. Deal gets done at around the £50 million mark in my view.
