If we were to spend big money on one player, what position would you prefer that to be for?

  1. Goalkeeper

    24.7%
  2. Defender

    16.7%
  3. Central Midfielder

    33.3%
  4. Winger

    The season is coming to a close, and rumours of player and manager targets are about to come in full force. A case can be made for bringing in...

    - A goalkeeper.
    - One or two centerbacks.
    - A leftback.
    - A backup rightback.
    - One or two centermids.
    - A winger.

    A lot of this will depend on what the new manager wants and what system they intend to play, but it's unquestionable that some new blood is needed in our defense. It'll be interesting to see, with Sven here, what sorts of gems we now unearth, but hopefully we still manage to bring in an established name or two to give our squad some much needed leadership and experience.

    On a side note, and this is very important: Please refrain from posting any twitter ITKs either here or in other player threads. They are only allowed if they are deemed acceptable in the "Twitter ITK Evaluation Thread", which I will be making shortly.

    Thank you, and may you retain your sanity throughout this probably frustrating summer.

    Summer thread off to a poor start as it doesn't have the correct title of 'Arteta and Sven's Transfer Targets: Summer 2018'.

    Doesn't bode well.

    Arteta doesn't need new players. He'll do the same thing with our underperforming lot as he did with Sterling, show videos to them and they all will elevate their game. Can't wait.

    Sven became expendable.

    I hear Kevin Grosskreutz has been browsing flats in the Islington area.

    Can't wait to pretend I know that player Sven will sign from Azerbaijan's second division!

    Not sure I'm mentally prepared for the roller coaster this thread is going to be.
    There will be ups, downs, mental breakdowns and likely 100 pages discussing something off topic that has nothing to do with football.
    This summer is going to be something else.

    This transfer period will be nothing if we don't get tweets, images, likes from girlfriends, barbers, first cousins etc...

    And whatever the outcome, it will never beat the Llama thread

    I think we'll be after a few under the radar signings, this is where Sven will earn his wages. Top GK, CB, CM, the rest can be less well known. After an awful season, here's to an amazing summer!

    Depends on the manager. If we get Arteta/Vieira I’d imagine we’ll be getting a load of kids in and spending very little. If we get Allegri/Jardim you’d hope we are planning to spend big.
