Personally think Konate would be first choice.
Has he the experience that is automatically going to improve us? Has he shown enough the past 2-3 years to say he will be the glue that holds the defence together? Personally I haven't seen the guy play so genuinely don't know.
My thinking is around the 70m mark to get a quality defender it's unlikely they are going to come to us as there will always be a bigger club sniffing them out before.
Like Mark said, you'd need to spread the €80m out over a winger and cb. There are €30-40m targets that would improve our squad like Konate, Upamecano or Dias. Towards the €80m mark I can really only think of Marquinhos, Koulibaly or Skriniar, but that wouldn't be prudent investments and it is indeed questionable if they would come.
Moreover, our defensive structure would also be significantly improved with the right midfield signing ideally replacing Xhaka in the lineup). I would splurge on Fabian Ruiz for example now that Barella is off to Inter.
I don't know where your getting Konate or that other highly rated fella for Liepzig for 30-40 when we are paying nearly 30 for a young lad with 16 appearances under his belt.
All of this cannot be done in one summer. Everyone wants Xhaka out, but it looks as if he's going to be the main captain. Sorting out the left side this window for me is priority, if we can get a CB that's better than Chambers then go ahead and ship Chambers out.
I'm pretty sure if we got CL football Upamecano would've been ours but alas, we ruined ourselves.
We get rid of Sp**s here comes Everton
Jokes on Everton we Will sign Everton instead
Last time a team rivalled us for a signing we got the player cheaper
I can almost smell how their sources writes them smth like : Arsenal interested in Zaha, also Everton.
And that's what brilliant Journalism brings you
I've always liked Everton.
People here talking Konate and Upamecano are selling dreams.
If we can get our deals done (Tierney, Zaha, Ceballos on loan, Saliba for next season) AND get one of the two French CBs of Leipzig.. blimey
We will see yet another push for EL trophy and I honestly can't see us missing out on top 4 given Chelsea and United barely improved and Sp**s might loose Eriksen still.
Why's there even a debate about Upa and Konate - there are zero links
There were links to Upa actually, it was CL football dependent.
I think the joke is that CP had a discussion on Arsenal possibly going after Everton if Zaha is not available. Some guy overheard it the wrong way and made news out of it.
There were also links to Konate, but that was also CL dependent.
We really screwed ourselves with that shambles against Chelsea.
Wow maybe they are serious...
Imagine getting bullied by Everton for our main target. BLOODY EVERTON.
Never gonna happen and goes to show just how SILLY silly season is? I respect Everton but Jesus Christ they're not an improvement on CP. They'll never get into the CL and as a foreigner I got the impression (after the last 10 years or so) that lesser English teams don't give a toss about the Europa.
It's fake, read the bottom part...
