    I'd like us to sign this Nicolas Pepe. I haven't seen a full match but I like his youtube compilation. Very promising player. And another right footed dribbling speedster on the other wing. Then we need an elite or elite potential central defender and a complete midfielder.

    Just give us one of Napoli´s midfielders. Diawara, Zielinski or Allan. Boubacar Kamara or Nordi Mukiele to partner Sokratis and Rebic to provide width and aggression.

    Pablo Fornals to replace Ramsey please emery. No chance buying him now but in summer maybe 25-30M euros should do it.

    For 12M euros was really excellent buy for Villareal the guy is f**king baller look like very similar to Bernardo Silva

    I think we are well stocked in midfield. The squad is actually taking shape and we have quite few spaces available for signings, but a few stick out more than others.

    Cech, Welbeck, Ramsey, Jenkinson, Licthsteiner, Elneny, Koscielny and Chambers are likely to all be gone next summer. I can see us putting Kolasinac on the market also as we are trying to tie down Monreal.

    Personally I feel we need a LB, CB (left sided), Winger and we should have the funds to go quite high on at least two of them.

    Personally I trust Mslintat with the centre back and winger signings.

    I would really like us to nab Sesssegnon though. I feel like he has so much potential as a left back and his physical power, pace and passing is really something.

    Yeah, I know. But I want at least rumors about wingers - not another attacking midfielder.

    Seems like the club are pinning their hopes on Iwobi and Nelson at the minute.

    They can play on the wing, but they’re not pacey or dynamic enough for me. Need something in the Zaha/Dembele/Sancho mold. That is, not an attacking midfielder who can play on the wing, but a winger who can’t play as an attacking midfielder.

    I think centre back wise De Ligt is out of our range and I want someone who is faster to partner Holding. I would go with Uduokhai as he is a left sided centre half, pacey, good in the air, quick on the ground. Kompany like. Hasn't got much game time this season, but that only suits us.

    A winger purchase completely depends on Nelson. He will be 19 when he returns from his loan and I don't think you spend £30 million on a winger if he really excels in Germany.

    I don't think we need to buy a central midfielder. Xhaka is young with Guendouzi as his understudy. You then have Torreira who is also young, with AMN pushing for either role. Elneny can be sold. That leaves you with 4 midfielders for 2 positions. I don't see a problem with that.

    I think left back is a really key position and I would spend quite alot of money on this position, as I don't think you fly under the radar if you are a good left back with the skill set we require.

    We need someone with blistering pace, good passing, confident in possession and the potential to take a man on. It is really difficult coming from a different league if you don't have the physical attributes to play in the premiership. I would sell Kolasinac, sign Monreal up for one more year and go big on Sessegnon.

    We would probably need a few house keeping signings like a back up keeper and right back unless we go with youth but our squad could potentially look like:

    GK: Leno, Martinez, Macey
    LB: Sessegnon, Monreal
    CB: Sokratis, Uduokhai, Mavropanos
    CB: Holding, Mustafi
    RB: Bellerin, Osei-Tutu
    DM: Torreira, AMN
    CM: Xhaka, Guendouzi
    RM: Nelson, Miki
    LM: Iwobi, ESR (Auba,Özil)
    AM: Özil
    CF: Lacazette, Auba, Nketiah (loan)

    We need to play 442/4222. Getting the best out of Lacazette and Aubameyang is more important than accommodating Özil in this team imo. Those two have a great relationship and I think we're guaranteed goals if they play. If we can get Özil working hard defensively and contributing from a wider role on the right then great but if not perhaps he shouldn't be in the team.

    Would like to see us add another CB, CM and a winger. Difficult to say what we're going to do over the next couple of transfer windows though as we have Monreal, Cech, Welbeck, Ramsey and Lichtsteiner all out of contract next summer and there is doubt over the futures of Koscielny, Chambers and possibly Mustafi/Kolasinac as well. If Monreal doesn't re-sign then we definitely need to sign another left back though.

    Kondogbia has been a player I've always wanted at Arsenal. At cb I'd go with Pavard and winger would be Pepe/Suso or Bailey.


    Welbeck, Ospina, Elneny, Ramsey, Asano, Chambers and Kosc/Mustafi.

    Leno, Cech, Martinez
    Bellerin, Lichtsteiner
    Sokratis, Holding
    Pavard, Koscielny, Mavropanos
    Monreal, Kolasinac
    Kondogbia, Xhaka, AMN
    Torreira, Guendouzi
    Mkhi, Iwobi, ESR
    Özil, Pepe, Nelson
    Lacazette, Nketiah

    That's still a massive squad so it wouldn't surprise me if we get rid of more players.

    De Ligt maybe seems out of our range, yeah.

    As for Nelson we shouldn't depend on it. We need another winger preferably left footed for balance regardless and you need competition. There is no need for a player to think they have no challenge to a starting spot.

    We do need another midfielder and sell Elneny. And as I said, we don't need either Xhaka or Guendouzi to be certain of their place while we can't just assume AMN will excel and give him a free run.

    No Welbeck and Cech? Martinez is ****. Özil as well has to actually perform or get sold because he is earning too much.

    CB - Upamecano, Udokhai, Bailly
    LB - Sessegnon, Tierney, Mendy
    CM -Kondogbia, Zakaria, N’zonzi
    RW - Nelson? Pepe, Sarr

    Maybe a case for a back up GK and RB hopefully Martinez and Osei-Tutu are ok.

    Thoughts on Luke Shaw on a free/exchange deal with Ramsey?

    Shaw has been their best player this season.

    Hard to see it happen

    I don't want us giving Ramsey to another PL team if he is to go.
