Mbiwa bid for 7m
Capoue bid for 10m
Remaining on 7. 5m bid for Dempsey
. 5m on seizure medication for Sergio Biscuits

Mbiwa is a relatively inexpensive, versatile defender, with captain experience, recent title winning experience, rare technical ability for a defender, strong aerial presence, strength and agility. He could finally fill the void left by the annual Sagna injury, while preventing the need to play Jenkinson, saving us from a few inevitable thrashings to be sure. He is young and french. He must be the spawn of AW.

Capoue is lanknacity. Tall, aggressive, with pace and tackling prowess, Capoue is the ideal DM/makeshift CB that Arsenal need. As a natural DM, his signing wouldn't put pressure on the current CB's for a starting place, which in turn wouldn't hamper development or waste money by benching other defensive signings. However it would relieve defensive pressures from injuries. He has good ball control and is adept enough at passing to work well as a deeper midfielder than Arteta, with Cazorla playing in the hole. A formidable destroyer to sit in front of the back four.

Dempsey because he's relatively inexpensive coming off of a good goal scoring season. He can play outside (especially on the left instead of our packed right wing) or as a striker or center forward. This way, if Chamakh, Bendtner, and Ju Young depart, Dempsey could pose a solid 3rd option upfront in case of injury to Podolski or Giroud

I will keep all the money as profits, and then i'll tell everyone that there is no top, top player out there worth 18-25mil that can improve our squad.
