Would Kola be good enough for our bench on a 60k a week, and if we paid 10mil for him?
LA is truly paradise.
I was happy with Saka.
Signing a 27 years old with little game time over the last couple of seasons who's plagued by injuries seems like a waste of funds. Handing him a three year deal e.g. means we're left with a hit on our wage budget because it'll be next to impossible moving him on, in case it doesn't work out.
Genuinely would’ve taken Gibbo back here. Good pro, Arsenal lad and could’ve mentored some of the young guys.
Would’ve taken a much lower wage and cost far less.
Kurzawa is basically a free transfer as well so he is gonna have fairly high wage demands.
Kola is made for the premier league and offers us something different. Tierney + Kurzawa would be a downgrade to Tierney + Kola, just to possibly safe a few peanuts in the future? MEH
I don't understand it at all...If he was a RB sure, that would mean we would have 2 specialist RB's/LB's and Maitland-Niles who can be used as a 3rd option for RB or LB. (He covered LB reasonably well before)
I think the problem there is Kola is quite injury prone himself. As another user pointed out a page or two back, this probably means the end for him here come the summer.
But Kola has missed 78 days since 17-18 season and Kurzawa has missed 170 days...
(where i got my stats from)
But Kurzawa has the same problems himself, so where is the upside in this?
Bit worrying that
Cashing in on Kola to the tune of 20-30m while securing a replacement on the cheap and probably a lower wage than what Kolas been on. I'm not keen on this signing but that's probably a bit of the thinking behind it.
That's the way I would see it. Would be lucky to get the figures you mention but an extra £10M-£15M even in the pot might help another position in the summer.
Also, we don't know what Kola is thinking. Perhaps he's indicated that he wants to move on in the summer, & we're being proactive trying to cover that just now?
I don't think the shoulder injury was a freak injury when Ornstein reported on it before, he seemed to make it worse.
It's not wise to buy a player that has had injury problems pretty much every season since 16/17, especially at Arsenal. We'll be playing makeshift fullbacks and signing guys like Kurzawa forever.
Kieran Gibbs is a terrible player, championship level at best.
8 injuries since 2016, mostly minor ones. I think you can find maaaany players with a similar record.
If you want another option at LB that has some longterm value and a good chance to be good - sign Philipp Max from Augsburg
I'm gonna repeat that tune in my head when he plays away at Astana for us in Europa League.
Question for those who are freaking out over this: who do you suggest that Arsenal could get on the cheap during this transfer window who could serve as Tierney's backup in the future, would cost less than Kolasinac, who could fill the left back spot immediately and who would clearly be better than Kurzawa? I'm struggling to think of anyone.
No shoulder problems at Celtic. Hip problems. And a hernia.
That if we made it to europa
