    I'd honestly hold off on a back-up RB for the time being unless someone like Max Aarons is a genuine option. Would rather just let AMN cover and focus on CB, LB and a winger.

    Hopefully with Willock and Nelson taking Elneny and Welbeck's places in the squad, the transfer committee can focus on buying starting level players.

    Aren't the spuds chasing Aarons too?

    Yeah, they'll probably get him too since Trippier and Aurier aren't up to much. That's why I wouldn't prioritise a RB in the window, no point in getting into a bidding war for a back-up when there are more pressing needs. Even if it is for a top talent like Aarons.

    I'm not sure we even need a massive budget this summer, of course it would be great but something like £50m should also be viable if we have a proper clear out. Players that are guaranteed to be leaving:

    Ramsey, Cech & Welbeck - £280k per week in wages

    Players that could leave (some more likely):
    • David Opsina - £3m
    • Mohamed Elneny - £10m
    • Stephan Lichtsteiner - Free
    • Nacho Monreal - £7m
    • Carl Jenkinson - <500k
    • Shkodran Mustafi - £20m
    • Calum Chambers - £25m
    • Denis Suarez - No fee
    • Mesut Özil - £15-20m?
    • Henrikh Mkhitaryan - £15m
    • Emiliano Martinez - £2m
    Highly unlikely that all of those players leave but I'd imagine we'll have at least £50-60m on top our budget plus well over £600-700k off the wage bill even if Özil is still here.

    If Aarons is as big of an Arsenal fan as his Twitter history shows, then we might not have to worry about that.

    Turns out he's not an Arsenal fan, just enjoyed the quality of football the team played. Here's where his real loyalty lies:

    He is not gonna refuse Tottenham if they are the best or the only team that comes in for him. We are talking about 10-30 thousands per week salary.

    Yeah, look at Raheem Sterling who was a United fan growing up but moved to Liverpool then City. I don't think fandom matters much to professionals.

    Would be negligent imo. Whether its someone like Aarons or someone similar capable of pushing Bellerin we need to look into it because the market for fullbacks at the moment is dire. If you can get in a young and upcoming fullback you do it. Its an opportunity in an area you can't overlook.

    Luckily, Monchi has a pretty solid rep at finding quality fullbacks.

    It affects some more than others. Cole may have played for Chelsea, but that recent appearance on Sky showed he was clearly still affected by his emotions for Arsenal.

    Also, I knew what I was saying when I said that about Aarons. Of course he’ll go to the club that pays more or gives him more game time. But if he likes to play pretty football, then that might give us a chance. Fact is we have a hole at back up for right back, can’t say the same about Tottenham. And unlike Chelsea, we play youth.

    Just a high stake gambler imo.
    If Sp**s is after him, of course we should go toe to toe with them. They probably haven't a buck up target anyway

    25m for a 24 year old still playing in Belgium?

    I wouldn't be surprised if started at Tottenham. Trippier and Aurier have both come in for a lot of criticism from Sp**s fans.

    Not sure he’d be a priority with what else they need and their limited budget. Of course, that could change if they sell Kane for big money.

    Don't they also have the Walker-Peeters guy?

    I disagree, I would try to go for a promising RB. There is no guarantee Bellerin will be match fit by the start of the season and it always helps to have genuine competition. AMN clearly lacks the toolkit for RB and it hurts his stock if he continues to play there.

    I have no problem with signing a young RB, I just wouldn't spend big money on one considering the other needs in the squad.
