    I am not a huge fan of Iwobi, but he is better than average. And he is only 23. Obviously some upside there.

    Personally I don´t think it makes a lot of sense for Everton, but certainly not ideal for Arsenal to reduce their depth.

    Yeah looks that way. I get the sentiment that we have Nelson sticking around this year and Martinelli and Saka possibly taking steps forward this year; however I think having Iwobi for coverage another year would be beneficial even if just until January to ensure the younger wingers are ready to take the step.

    People just refuse to believe the market is what it is now. Mustafi, Xhaka, Mkhi, and probably Ozil would all still bring in at least 30.

    Well. Why are they still Arsenal-players then?

    Iwobi is completely different due to his age.

    Everton always seems to make a few intriguing signings, fail at being a unit, and spend quite a bit while doing so.

    OK. But then it is a bit silly to say they are worth 30m.

    Take the 30m and pay them 15m to cover for lost wages.

    God Sky Sports News are so useless. "Spurs are basically the same team. They have only bought to improve the squad - not the team."

    This is also real life not Fifia. Can't sell half your squad every window and buy replacements and integrate them into the team seamlessly. Not to mention if you're paying their wages to leave you are not saving any money unless you're replacing them from within with kids. The club is still trying to win and finish top 4.

    I accept that. And not suggesting Arsenal should have sold all 4 at the same time, but surely one would have made sense if teams were willing to buy them for 30m?

    Getting 40 for someone mediocre like Iwobi is great business for Arsenal.

    No surprises there. I am not sold on him, but really hope I´m wrong.

    Bold move by United to not buy another midfielder to replace Herrera. They must have A LOT of faith in McTominay and Pereira to take another step and for Matic to stay healthy. Besides Pogba, there's no one else.

    Fred.

    Definitely quite short though. Especially since they would probably be better off if Matic gets injured.

    I would already pick him over Lustig, he is a lot better with the ball, a lot faster and works even harder with his tireless runs. Lustig has been a great servant but he isn't really what he was only a year ago anymore. Great signing, probably better than Yedlin.
