    As the season draws to a close and transfer muppetry begins, I wanted to look back to the recent past at players we were heavily linked to, who came close to joining or you wanted, but with hindsight are glad we didn’t sign.

    Exhibit A: Yann M’vila


    I was sure Yann M’vila was tailor made for our midfield but having seen him at Sunderland during their disaster season and thereafter, I lit definitely feels like we dodged a bullet.

    I remember his medical being announced by ITKs for a solid 2 months.

    For me hard to beat Christopher Samba. I was well on his hype train as well :lol:

    Junior Hoilett another who we always got linked to was at Blackburn same time as samba.

    Who was that Birmingham CB that always got mentioned as coming here?

    Thomas Lemar for me. Reported price was about 80m, Wenger really wanted the guy and he didn't come for whatever the reason was. That one could've been Mustafi x3

    Benzema I think. A lot of quality but never liked him.

    In terms of recent seasons we’ve dodged some bullets, few land mines.

    -Romelu Lukaku
    -Aleskandr Kokorin
    -Jean Michael Seri

    Could potentially slip Thomas Lemar in there.. he’s had an awful season. But I do have sympathy for attacking players in a Simeone team. Still reckon Lemar could do a madness here- but his own performances have been well below bar at a higher level.
