    Ceballos (loan) / Lemina / promote AMN-Willock-ESR


    Compare the Ins and Outs there, quality vs deadwood. Would take a while for some of these players to develop and gel but our squad would look healthy again.

    Would be sort on CBs because of Kos being a *****. But otherwise I love it. Maybe just keep Chambers around.

    12.5m for two guys who have won a world cup and have a combined age of less than 60? What planet do you guys live on?

    12.5m wouldn't even buy you Peter Crouch and he's retired!

    15m for Chambers when Michael Keane went for 30m 2 summers ago and Maguire is being quoted at 90m.

    Behave guys please! 12.5 for Mkhi. I give up

    Grimaldo / Tierney (€25m) Hermoso (€35m) Ruiz (€60m) Everton (€40m) Alves (free) Saliba (€5m upfront + loan back) + Martinelli (€7m)
    = €172m

    Nketiah, Osei-Tutu, Nwakali

    Cech (free, £100k) Lichtsteiner (free, 90k) Jenkinson (free, £45k) Ramsey (free, £110k) Welbeck (free, £70k) Ospina (€4m, £40k) Mustafi (€15m, £90k) Chambers (€25m, £50k) Kolasinac (€20m, £120k) Elneny (€7m, £50k) Xhaka (€40m, £90k) Özil (€5m, £350k) Mkhitaryan (€15m, £180k) Koscielny (€5m, £90k) Asano (€2m) Amaechi (?? + buyback)
    = €138m + €50m (budget) + €5m (Bennacer) = €193m
    + £1.4m/week wages saved

    Start of the season:
    Alves - Sokratis - Hermoso - Grimaldo
    - Torreira - Willock
    Nelson - Aubameyang - Everton

    Bellerin - Holding - Mavropanos - Monreal
    Guendouzi / AMN - Bielik - ESR
    Martinelli - Lacazette - Iwobi / Saka​

    Result: healthy financially, healthy squad depth, significantly improved starting XI

    Would love to add Ziyech for €30m too, but seems we're not in for him. More likely that Özil stays, which should still be completely feasible in the above setup.

    Ceballos and Ruben Diaz.

    Never thought we were getting a CM/AM of this magnitude this window, neither a proven CB at the age of 21 which means were talking ELITE talent.

    Imagine those two on top of Saliba, Tierney and Zaha/Everton/Malcolm

    Thats wishlist stuff right there, make it happen Arsenal.

    Kolasinac - £15m

    Total - £30m

    Alves - Free
    Ceballos - Loan
    Malcom - Loan (+ ~£40m option to buy?)
    Tierney - £25m
    Everton - £35m

    Total - £60m


    Everton Ceballos Malcom

    Xhaka Torreira

    Tierney Sokratis Holding Bellerin

    Özil, Xhaka, Mustafi, Elneny and Mkhi all out.

    I don’t care who or if anyone comes in as replacements, don’t care if we get a single pound back, don’t care where they go I just really want them all gone. They individually and collectively represent failure at AFC and I want a fresh start.

    Bit disappointing, but hardly surprising, that any and all links away for these guys have dried up, so I’m wishlisting/willing this to happen.

    I can't see any other scenario than Özil, Mustafi and Mkhi being here until their contracts expire in 2 years time. Nobody is going to pay the wages they are on and none seem to have any desire to leave.

    You are better off wish listing a time machine to whisk you off to summer 2021. It can't come fast enough for me.

    Based on our USA tour squad, IMO these positions should be our priorities with mostly realistic targets :
    Physical CM : Partey/Grillitsch/Gbamin/Roca/Sangare
    LB : Firpo/Tierney/R. Sessegnon/A. Martin/Bensebaini
    Left footed CB : Zagadou/Kimpembe/N'Dicka/Niakhate/M. Sarr
    Technical CM : Ceballos/Ziyech/De Beek/Sanson/Zielinski
    RB : Atal/Henrichs/Mukiele/Dumfries/Mazraoui
    Winger : Everton/Pepe/Bergwijn/St. Maximin/I. Sarr
    Mobile + Physical CF : Belfodil/Mateta/Marcus Thuram/Dolberg/Mitrovic

    Seeing that we are said to be bidding for Zaha (50), Tierney (25) Saliba (25), it seems we have about 100 M to spend, so I will spend it for some of the players listed above :
    1st team :

    KIMPEMBE (30)---A. MARTIN(20)



    2nd team :
    MUKIELE (20)/---Chambers---Holding---Kola
    DUMFRIES (15)



    Back Ups :
    GK : Macey;
    Defenders : Medley
    Midfielders : Bielik; Saka
    Forwards : Martinelli

    Loan Outs :
    Mavro; ESR; Nketiah

    We are then free to sell : Jenko; Monreal; Mustafi; Elneny; Xhaka; Miki; Asano; for at least 50-80 M which can be used to finalise Buy To Loan of Saliba (30 M), then we can buy a winger or 3rd CF(20-50 M).

    If we can do these, I think we can get top 4 comfortably + EURO/FA Cups.

    2) Tierney
    3) Ceballos loan
    4) Saliba
    5) An athletic CM in the mould of Lemina

    Would be a 10/10 window for me

    Agree largely, but can we not sign a starting cb?

    Bro would be great but financial constraints and all that is making this a work in progress.

    Plus I am nutter who just wants to see more attacking football. Our football last season was beyond boring.

    Furthermore if it was left to me I would use that £25m for Tierney on Ziyech instead.

    Zaha --------- Özil --------- Ziyech
    Xhaka ------- Torreira/Lemina
    Kola--Holding - Sokratis - Bellerin


    I would gladly wait next season to bring in defensive enforcements.
