    An interesting question. If Oblak is, indeed, a primary target, it would seem more the latter. Although he's not really a starlet (he's just turned 25), he still has room to grow and improve on his distribution skills.

    Casteels is in a similar situation too.

    What are the chances of us getting Timo Horn as a replacement for Cech?

    Keylor Navas for me.
    Its only a matter of time before Madrid bins him for a shiny new GK star like De Gea or Courtois

    He is old, not for a Gk really but we should look for a Gk that can be here 10years

    He'd be a disaster here. Classic undersized shot stopper with shaky command of his box who gets savaged on set pieces and crosses. No thank you. Seen enough from Ospina to know how that ends.

    Liverpool must go all out to buy a GK. The whole world knows how desperate they are and they know about the coutinho money. Nobody needs a gk like they do.

    I don't want to know about all the players we've missed out on. It's like someone telling me I have a grey hair, yeah I know but I don't wanna hear about it.

    Oblak would be a seismic transfer for us, way bigger than Aubameyang. I see a tiny chink of hope; Madrid, PSG and Liverpool are the big teams that need a keeper. Atletico won't sell to Madrid, PSG might have FFP constraints and if it came down to an arms race between us and Liverpool we'd stand a chance.

    But it's too good to be true, so i'm saying it won't happen.

    Oblak would be a dream but it will remain as such. Doesn't hurt to try and even though I don't see why Athletico would consider it, we could try him before for going at the bracket below.

    Horn and Leno are realistic for where were at now. Oblak would be that extra step.

    Jan Oblak is a wishlist signing. It would be absolutely incredible but it's unrealistic with the fee Atletico will demand, plus the competition for his signature.
    If we pulled it off I'd see it as a similar level of signing as the day we got Özil, it would be massive.

    Oblak, Manolas and a DM like Fabinho would top what we've just done in the January window.

    Just been listening to Ornstein talk about the January transfer window. A few interesting things so far. He's heard (although not confirmed) that Arsenal never actually offered Alexis a new contract. Once they had an idea what he was looking for, they knew it was too much. Also, it seems Raiola came to Arsenal at the beginning of the transfer window with the idea of a Sanchez-Mkhitaryan swap. Arsenal was open to the idea because they wanted to move Alexis and had wanted Micki for quite awhile. He said they thought they had Micki in 2016, but United swooped in with a financial offer Arsenal couldn't match at the time.

    I think long term we got the better deal sad but true. My boy is world class but not a team player.

    Never gonna happen. Will comfortably earn a lot of trophies and respect at Juve. It's a challenge here.

    He had a once in a lifetime offer that most young players will find hard to refuse.

    Donnarumma is the Dream

    Regardless of fee it is worth it because it is 15 years worth

    Even if we pay 100m £ we can even recoup it after 10years
     
  19. People here don't understand HG rules.

    You can have 17 foreign players in your squad regardless of how many HG's you have.

    In the current squad we only have 13 and that's including Ospina, Elneny and Mertesacker is retiring. We're in a superb position with the squad now in terms of foreign players and can get rid of as many home growns as we want if need be.
     
  20. Homegrown players -

    Holding
    Bellerin
    Chambers
    Ramsey
    Wilshere
    Iwobi
    Welbeck

    I'd be happy to bin off Welbeck, Chambers and loan out Holding for experience.
