    We got Saliba & Ceballos now add Dani Alves, a world class CB, Tierney and Zaha and this summer will be on the best we have ever had.

    My dream for that CB position would be Koulibaly.

    Bellerin Sokratis Koulibaly Tierney
    Torreira Willock
    Zaha Ceballos PEA
    Laca ​

    For the remainder of the window:

    In: Dias (€40m) / Kimpembe (€35m) / Rugani (€30m) / Upamecano (€35m), Soares (€40m), Tierney (€25m), Alves (€5m altogether)

    Out: Elneny (€10m), Bielik (€10m), Amaechi (€2.5m), Asano (€2m), Koscielny (€5m), Mustafi (€15m), Mkhitaryan (€15m), Kolasinac (€15m) / Monreal (€5m)

    We have loan Ceballos for CAM, and will have Saliba next summer. Next priority should be LB>Left footed CB>CDM>RB.
    LB : Tierney consistently linked, alternatively better deal for Aaron Martin and Ryan Sesegnon (20-25 M)
    Left Footed CB : Zagadou>Kimpembe>Niakhate>N'Dicka, just from the French national youth teams, to catalyze partnership at club and country with Saliba. 20-30 M for one of them.
    RB : Mukiele (20-25 M, also plays CB, Leipzig has Klostermann as 1st choice, so might be available)>Dumfries (15-20 M, 1st choice for PSV and Oranje)>Dani Alves/Juanfran for free.
    CDM : Partey (45 M, dream)>Roca (20-30 M, Dani C's partner in Spain U21)>Grillitsch (20-30M, great for Hoffenheim)

    If we can sell some deadwoods then next are \Winger (but I dont think we can sell the deadwoods) :
    Winger : Cheaper prospects after above spending, like Marcus Thuram (10-15 M), he is big, fast, strong, good dribbler, good scorer, and good header.

    1st team :
    Bellerin ------------Sok------------ZAGADOU----------------TIERNEY
    ---------------------Dani C----------------ROCA---------------------------

    2nd team :

    Youths : Medley; Willock; ESR; Saka; Martinelli; John-Jules

    About 150 M spend including Saliba, while selling Kos (2), Monreal (3), Mustafi (10), Elneny (10), Xhaka (30), Miki (10), total net spend 85 M.
  5. If everything comes real and we get Tierney and Pépé, then I would take a starting Centre back and that would be a great transfer period

    Aubameyang Lacazette Pépé
    Xhaka Torreira
    Tierney New CB. Sokratis Bellerin

    With PSG signing Diallo, I wonder if Kimpembe is available.
    asukru and Hunta like this.

    Assuming we do get Pepe and Tierney/other new LB, then we must get 1 good CB to challenge for top 3. Want to see us try 442 diamond ala Milan of Kaka-Seedorf-Gattuso-Pirlo, think we can replicate them pretty close :

    Bellerin---Sok/Holding---New CB---Tierney/New LB
    Torreira---Dani C
    2 of Auba/Laca/Pepe

    Can be an awesome set up.

    Going to assume that Pepe is done.

    In: Alves (free), Tierney (25m), Dunk (35m)

    Out: Jenkinson (3m) Maitland-Niles (25m), Nelson(loan) , Mustafi (15m), Mkhi (10m), Kos (2m), El Nenny (5m), Bielik (10m), Özil (15m), Kolasinac (15m).

    Since posting this a few things have changed, so I'm updating to factor in the changes:

    1. Pepe in without (it appears) needing to sell Auba
    2. With Auba staying, no need to buy another winger (Fraser)
    3. Loan for Ceballos means it is not urgent to buy a CM (Partey)
    4. Kosc forcing a sale means we need a first choice CB
    5. It appears that Bielik will be sold (therefore we must keep Chambers) and Nelson loaned (need a different backup winger/AM).

    Granit Xhaka (€25M)
    Sead Kolasinac (€10M)
    Shkodran Mustafi (€5M)
    Muhammed Elneny (€5M)
    Krystian Bielik (€5M)
    Ismael Bennacer (€5M)*
    David Ospina (€4M)*
    Laurent Koscielny (€4M)
    Xavier Amaechi (€2.5M)*
    Reiss Nelson (Loan)
    Emile Smith-Rowe (Loan)
    Konstantinos Mavropanos (Loan)
    TOTAL: €65.5M

    Nicolas Pepe (€80M)*
    William Saliba (€30M + Loan Back)*
    Presnel Kimpembe (€30M)
    Kieron Tierney (€25 + Jenkinson)
    Gabriel Martinelli (€7M)
    Dani Ceballos (Loan)
    TOTAL: €173M

    NET SPEND: €108M

    .............................Leno (27)
    ..........................Martinez (26)

    ................Sokratis (31) Kimpembe (24)
    ................Chambers (24) Holding (23)
    Bellerin (24).................................. Tierney (22)
    AMN (22)..................................... Monreal (33)

    ..................Torreira (23) Ceballos (23)
    ................Willock (20) Guendouzi (20)

    Pepe (24)........... Özil (30)..... Aubameyang (30)
    Mkhi (30)......... Iwobi (23)................. Saka (17)

    ..........................Lacazette (28)
    ...........................Nketiah (20)

    very good shout. Maybe Boubacar Kamara from Marseille has come onto the scene recently and contract expires soon. Would be cheaper

    Its a bit unrealistic. Perhaps set a more achievable window. Its not football manager.

    Nicolas Pepe (£72m)
    William Saliba (£27m)
    Dani Ceballos (Loan)
    Gabriel Martinelli (£6m)
    Presnel Kimpembe (Loan= Option To Buy)
    Kieran Tierney (£25m)

    Mohamed Elneny (£8m)
    Laurent Koscielny (£8m)
    David Ospina (£3m)
    Nacho Monreal (£5m)
    Carl Jenkinson (£5m)

    Dunk really hurts my head. Brighton want £40M for LEWIS DUNK. Theres so many better centre backs for a better price. Why not get Kimpembe or Boubacar Kamara or Malang Sarr or Upamecano or Konate or Ake. Someone better than dunk

    In: Rugani, Tierney, Saliba, Ceballos, Pepe
    Out: Jenkinson, Mustafi, Mavropanos (Loan), Koscielny, Elneny, Mkhitaryan, Asano.






    Some squad that.

    What's unrealistic? The sell fees? My wishlist is from before the Pepe news broke. I assumed we couldn't afford a 80m winger and a cb, so I spread it 40 / 40 between Dias (or alternatives) and Soares.

    I'd be ecstatic with your list too, by the way. Think Kimpembe can be very good under Emery and we need a left-footed ball-playing CB, just hope we're selling a few more players (notably Mkhi and Mustafi) than you list here.

    Definately need a solid Left back and Centre back.

    Play a flat back 4 with the emphasis on defence first attack 2nd.

    With potentially Pepe, Laca, Auba, Özil, Ceballos in forward positions that should be enough to not have to over rely on our full backs for attacks and leaving spaces all over the place when they break down.

    Assuming we get Tierney and Pepe over the line my wish list for next summer is,

    A top class partner for Saliba

    Hopefully Ceballos will be a big success and we can get him on a permanent deal, if not a 'baller' of a similar profile for midfield

    A better more mobile version of Xhaka who can play in a solid 2 with Torreira

    Both the Norwich fullbacks when they get relegated! Aarons as backup to Bellerin and Lewis backing up Tierney


    Monreal *
    Chambers *
    Elneny *

    * May go this year

    Title challenge 2020-21 here we come!

    GK - Leno, Martinez
    Full backs - Bellerin, Tierney, Aarons, Lewis
    DC - Saliba, ?, Holding, Chambers, Medley
    Midfield - Ceballos, ?, Torreira, Willock, AMN, Iwobi, ESR
    Attack - Auba, Laca, Pepe, Nelson, Saka, Martinelli, Nketiah

    YeahBee Terrible hot takes

    Midfield 2 is dead, the free role Özil strives for is dead

    ACM must be counted to a midfield trio

    Opposition dictates if it is a flat
    1: ACM, dm , ACM
    2 DM, ACM, DM
    3: Dm, CM, ACM

    I'm a big fan of 4-3-3 too, that would be my first choice. I would still like a midfielder who could play alongside Torreira in a 2 as well as being the perfect compliment in a 3 so we have the flexibility to play 4-2-3-1 or even 4-4-2 at home against the weaker sides.

    Almost doesnt matter which DM we bring, regardless if we play xhaka or torreira, and I like both

    2men midfields are too easily bullied,

    Auba and Pepe/Zaha winger types are not great defenders so we need that extra dm

    3 CMS now!

    Against weaker sides we wan even go 4312 and have the wbs provide all the width

    This whole budget thing is stupid. Arsenal are one of the biggest clubs in the world (from sales, revenue, ticket prices etc) and one of the biggest brands. No one knows how much Arsenal have, though its definetly over £40m and most likely over £100m
