    Price won't be high because :
    1/ he's coming off a poor season
    2/ Barca desperately want him out
    3/ he's old and might have lost a step

    There are some higher profile midfielders available this summer.

    That's all true but you're forgetting one thing... soccer is dumb. Correa went for 50, Bale is probably going to return a profit. if it isn't 80+ barca will be getting robbed in this market.

    Good.

    You're dreaming here. Rakitic won't get more than 40 MAX.

    Really want Tierney to get done, I’m not saying I expect him to be Robertson mark II off the bat but Kola just doesn’t inspire confidence and he and Monreal obviously don’t represent any kind of long term future. Tierney looks like he has the right combination of skill going forward and intelligence to shine on the flank for Emery. Plus can’t he play some center back? How does he fit in the Scottish lineup with Robertson one of the best left backs in the world?

    Dream scenario would be Tierney+Zaha still to come. But SEPHs rather realistic notion that we unfortunately won’t be off loading enough dead wood probably makes this a faint dream.

    Only a lunatic would think Correa would net 50 million... yet here we are.

    Not really good enough for someone who is supposed to be a world class player according to Arsenal fans.

    Correa is 7 years younger.

    Our twitter is basically flooded with people either calling him world class or our worst player ever. I would consider myself closer to the second category.

    Which says a lot more about you than the others.

    I dont remember every single detail of the games obviously.

    I thought Konate and Upamecano where solid mostly, but a few mistakes probably overshadowed that. Ikone and Bernardoni where decent, Tousart was solid and hardworking as usual and made few mistakes in possession.

    Guendiuzi was largely at fault for multiple goals against Spain due to poor positioning and giving the ball away, and took too many touches every single time he touched it against Roumania, running around out of position and losing every duel as usual. I would possibly consider it being the worst performance I have ever seen by a player in the U21 Euros of all time.

    I thought Aouar was extremely underwhelming, same goes for Reine Adelaide when he played.

    None of the midfielders besides possibly Aouar would get onto Arsenal’s bench, so claiming their midfield is deeper is utterly ridiculous.

    I’m not a huge Ceballos fan, but he’s better than what Arsenal has in midfield. Good move. If they finish top four he might sign permanently, and for them to finish top four he would have to make a strong impact. Not much downside to it.

    Ridiculous indeed. Tousart would start at 6, Aouar would start every game too.

    You have of course no idea of how the tournament went, you didn't watch the game and you're making crap up. Guendouzi had a solid tournament and the turning point was the injury in the first game to Bamba.

    So once again, you made a fool of yourself. Just like the Lloris comment and the mutiple posts you made here.

    Any truth that Arsenal are after Everton Soares? That would definately be a game changer for them.

    Fulham's defence proved their undoing, however it should be emphasised that they introduced plenty new defenders into their 2018-19 squad.

    RB: Fosu-Mensah (loan)
    RB/CB: Chambers (loan)
    CB: Mawson (£15 million)
    LB: Le Marchand (undisclosed, but £3.5 million quoted by one source) / Bryan (£6 million)

    In fact, their problem may have been too much change in that department rather than too little - defences, after all, tend to need to play together consistently to forge a functional unit. In Fulham's case, two members of the defence that saw them through the second half of the 2017-18 campaign were loanees whose deals weren't renewed - Kalas and Targett. So, too a degree, the disruption was forced on them.

    I mean, I don't know for sure because I don't remember all the sources, but yes. Allegedly they had people (including doctors) down in Brazil watching him play. Edu Gaspar, who is alleged to be the one recruiting Brazil, didn't deny it when confronted (said we'll see, we'll see). The talk is that he's a backup play for Zaha. I think he should be plan A, but regardless, Zaha seems to be too expensive anyway, so there's a decent chance Arsenal go for it. I wouldn't hate a Saliba-type arrangement where we loan him back for the rest of his season and get him permanently in January.

    I won't be surprised if Bayern sign him next year like what they did with Gnabry. They were already interested in him.



    Second source stating the deal isn't dead.

    • BVB linked with Malcolm for 42 million, but Barça apparently denies this.
    • Apparently both Fiorentina and Atalanta are interested in Rafinha.
    • Vermaelen, who is out of contract, is headed to Vissel Kobe where he'll join Villa, Iniesta and Samper.

    I would say it depends on what you consider "high", regardless:

    1/ No, he's not at all.
    2/ I think "desperately" is probably an overstatement.
    3/ Maybe, but his game isn't built that much around physical play.

    Agreed there are higher profile guys out there, but would they go to Inter? Anyway, he doesn't seem to be at all interested in leaving.

    I'd try and get 50 million, but 40 million would be fine by me.

    I definitely agree, but is Barcelona any better of an option? I would think that clubs such as Villarreal, Valencia, Sevilla, Bilbao, Betis and potentially Atletico are the best options, otherwise they need to go overseas.

    I don't buy this. I think we are done buying for the summer, unless we bring in a CF.

    We have been linked with Malcom for a few seasons now, so its not new news that we want to bring in Malcom, but I don't see it happening this summer. Maybe next summer after Sancho leaves.

    If it does happen, I think it must mean that Brandt is going to play centrally, and it would be a move of real ambition to play like that and break the club record for Malcom, but I think we are done buying for the summer, and will be doing some selling the last month of the window.
