📢 Rumour Rob Holding (Out)

The question is, if they sell Holding do we trust them not to buy another Mari?

I reckon it'll be that Ukrainian LCB we were linked with before...

The boys a snitch, so whilst I have stuck up for him in the past and appreciated some of his displays on the pitch I wouldn't be sad to see him go.

Seen these teacher's pet types all my life in school and in offices, sucking up the most but still irrelevant on the sidelines hating. Bye.

Am I the only one who think this would be a bad business for us? If we sell Holding there is no way we go through a season with European games with 3CBs. Which means we have to buy one CB.
I rate Holding as a rotational CB, he is much better than the likes of Marri, very professional with us (not a cry baby) and whenever he has been called upon he has performed reasonably well. I don’t think quality players will come to Arsenal to sit on bench and be happy with handful of starts. With the current role Holding has in our overall squad, I don’t think we should sell him and definitely not to Villa.

Surprised he isn't pushing for a move. Seems happy to be 4th fiddle

I have no problems with him as 4th choice playing cups games and some Europa League matches. We should have other priorities in midfield.

Definitely sell for me. Holding is a good player but selling him and buying a talented young left footed CB whos on half of Holdings wages is a smart move.

Is anyone else just happy that a transfer link comes from outside interest instead of us trying to flog players off for once?
I hope this is the new normal.

I prefer week keep Rob as he’s proven how valuable he is in shutting down a game off the bench. Plus he’s quality squad depth in an important position.
But 25 mill + and you’d have to consider it…

Should fetch us okay money if they're desperate.

I wouldn't mind switching Holding for Ndicka for example, left-footed with a year in contract. Wouldn't cost us much to make this switch.

Not sure what the other options could be for LCB.

Frankfurt want to sell him, but he is intending to run his contract down.

The issue with white playing as a right back, is that we won’t be able to rotate him with our Centre backs as he will also need be rested.

We shouldn't let our 3rd best CB go. We need depth of quality and it would be a mistake to let a good consistent peformaner go.

I am all for his selling at any decent price but how would his sale affect our homegrown quota?
Would we still have space to bring a non-HG player in his place?
