Even if they sell De Jong they need to pay Pique a year's salary and Lewandowski and Silva will cost €100m. They were only interested in Raphinha in a bargain relegation sell-off.
This big time, I feel like we werent expecting Raphinha to be available but when Barca realised they had to actually pay they cooled their interest.

Feels like from what all sources are saying the Jesus deal is done bar the fee agreement (quite a big factor admittedly) & we focussing now trying to fast track a deal for Raph.

If Viera is anything to go by (6 days from deal being reported to announcement), Jesus might not be until next week, even if all done.

Then there is Martinez who we are up against Utd for. Seems like whoever player prefers. We can possibly offer more playing time but they have his ex manager.

Gonna be a looong window folks.

Signing Jesus would alleviate a lot of pressure.

After that, I think I fancy our chances getting at least 1 of Raphinha and Martinez. I would even give us a 50% chance we manage to land both.

Jesus, Vieira and Raphinha or Martinez will be a very solid start.

Raphinha alternatives: Richarlison, Gakpo, and maybe Gnabry later in the window (amongst others like maybe Diaby)

Martinez alternatives is a bit more tough as he is such a unique player but in terms of versatile LBs there is: Zinchenko, Hickey, KWP etc

Then we could potentially get Tielemans as a cherry on top too.

By the way, taking a long time to announce a player doesn’t mean anything despite it being frustrating. Vieira was wrapped up ages ago which means we got him and weren’t gonna lose him.

"intention to make bid & that has now landed. Falls well short of #LUFC valuation, expected to be rejected out of hand"

Who was it that said we had already agreed a fee with Leeds but we had to wait for the Barca side?

Arsenal Quotes

Thierry Henry was very quick at analysing everything that was going on and how he needed to react. This intelligence, this capacity to evaluate, understand and question oneself, is also the mark of great players... For everyone, for the fans and for us, he symbolised the golden age of Arsenal.
