    The attack and the midfield structure suffer because Arsenal has defenders who Emery doesn't trust (thus 3 at the back) and who couldn't play the ball out of the back of a wet paper bag, much less through a pressing opponent.

    I know him from Fifa. He can play DM and CB. Wouldn't mind a transfer like that with a young CB coming in. Would cover up two positions.

    I believe so.

    Joachim Anderson is a CB at Sampdoria. He goes under the radar but highly rated in Serie A. My friend who tipped Torreira rates this fella highly and apparently Sp**s have shown an interest. De Light is out of our price range, Pavard has gone but this guy is attainable. We seem to have a good relationship with Sampdoria so let's try again imo.

    Are Jordan Torunarigha or Emiliano Velazquez worth a look?

    Torunarigha seems like a talented defender from what I've seen, very quick as well, which I think is important for any cb that we look to sign.

    Interesting sounds like he'd be a good option to play with Mav or Holding in the future.

    A future Koulibaly type player?

    Realistically we'll be looking at defenders a tier or two below De Ligt. If he happens to have an older brother who never quite made in in the big league, that's who we're more likely to buy

    You can't bring out individual performances as a justification of his talent. He is a good young prospect but his talent is being blow way out of proportion.

    Like any young defender he makes mistakes and has bad performances. The fact that he plays in Holland masks that. You cannot be a world class defender at 19. You need to make mistakes to learn from them in order to develop. That is what experience means and you need that to be a good defender.

    Does he have potential? Yes. But can you pluck a 19 year old from obscurity and potentially have the same player if not better. I think you can.

    Arsenal has never signed that type of player. There are plenty of players below the superstar Barca/Real radar that will become amazing players.

    I really want us to get CB signing right but the idea we have to do what Liverpool did and spend 70m is not right I don't think.

    Ugh, from what I can tell he's an average workhorse of a midfielder. Nowhere near the technical quality we need to be looking for.

    He also plays center back.

    Sounds like a real prospect, but surely making any deal for a prospect will depend on how much funds we have available to spend.

    It will be ironic when Sven quit us because lack of money but he will sign his old pals Mustafi, El Nenny and Welbeck for 75 M to his new team and we will spend it on the last few talents he scouted.

  19. say yes

    say yes To Sweet Soulful Vinai

    I’d actually feel sorry for Merson if we signed him.
