Arsenal are very close to conclude a deal for 22yo forward Miguel Almiron from Lanus - fee around €9.4m



Ermmm yay? What am I on about. We just signed the next messi lads
Ozil's first assist of the season...Mustafi ;)

Did AW get a rhythm?

... despite Wenger saying they would then be quiet during the final three days of the window, Tuttomercatoweb claim Arsenal are trying to sign Lanus midfielder Miguel Almiron.

The Italian website says talks are ongoing between the two clubs over a quick deal for the Paraguay international.

Arsenal are said to have tabled a £9.4m bid and negotiations are continuing with Lanus hoping to receive £11.1m for the attacking midfielder.

He wants to take Arsenal's spending to 100 million 😂😂😂😂
+1
i can't see Arsene going for Miguel... looks like another future failed signing.
Callum Chambers to Middlesbrough


FANTASTIC news imo, PL club and will most likely play all games.
+1
I wouldn't say him starting every game is likely at all
+1
Atleast he can learn to position himself better Karanka is a great coach to learn from
That really is great news, but he is gonna need to have a good season and come back with a lot of runs on the board if he is gonna find a permanent starting place, it looks like there are fair few in front of him at the moment. Great opportunity and the best thing for his development though. Stoked.
Chelsea are set to splash £21million+ on former Bolton defender Marcos Alonso (via the Telegraph)


I'm guessing they put all their eggs on Koulibaly and Rudiger(before injury) cos this came out of nowhere
Weltmeister @MustafiOfficial wechselt zum FC @Arsenal und zu @MesutOzil1088 in die @premierleague: https://t.co/KIyUBoNpsX #DieMannschaft


Basically the German national teams Twitter account has announced the transfer before Arsenal
Teammanager Arsène Wenger bestätigte den Wechsel von Mustafi und von Lucas Perez (Deportivo La Coruna).

They are referencing AW as the confirmation.
According this link,

"Es war ein hartes Stück Arbeit, es gibt keine Pläne für weitere Transfers", sagte Wenger.

Translates to "it was hard work, there are no plans for any further transfers"

Deffy Sprichst du deutsch?
This transfer window is weird for Arsenal.com as its no longer the first place a new signing becomes official.
@Timid, manchnal aber nicht einwandfrei.

Bist du Deutscher?

Rob Holding stats next! the boy did good!
+1
I think in the first half Holding had 100% passing accuracy, and that was with this outrageous pass that made it to Ozil
RH 29 passes, 100 pct completed. He was solid having Kos around.
Not very welcome news for Mustafi though, who may have to start at the bench.
This again confirms how crazy transfer market goes: 2 mio vs 35 mio signings - price difference does not reflect the class difference. Rather the squeeze the buyers are in.
Holding can play alongside Kos, and as well as Mustafi... He also can play RB too so he cover loads of positions. Early days but atm AW has pulled an absolute gem, and who also is English for peanuts
+1
Vladzzz, I agree. The irony is, this is the exact transfer mentality that earns Wenger such criticism.

He actually asked a reporter "if I buy you for £45m, have I done my job well? Because I have spent the money..."

It's a fair point, really. Price is not synonymous with quality, only a reflection of the economic situation.

However, I think Mustafi will bench Holding just because he is more experienced and, despite his early signs of promise, Holding is too raw to be relied upon for a title challenge.
+1
Judging from Holdings performances it would unfair to bench him. Based on form alone he should play ahead of Mustafi for now. Mustafi is not match fit and hasn't played in a while.

@deffy players are worth 40mil for a reason. You spend 40 million you expect proven quality ..look at Özil.

But if you buy young players who only played first team football for 6months then fans and media have a right to question you. Look at Chambers, he had a great start at Arsenal and then the wheels fell..lol even Sanogo, Campbell.

Point is, when you buy young players it's a gamble and the chances of that gamble paying off is minimal.
For every Ozil there is a Di Maria. Dollars is no guarentee of quality, though of course top quality costs top dollar.
Top dollar players tend to succeed more than cheap gambles..there is a reason why that is the case.

Plus Di Maria was class last season!! Lol one off-season to adjust to a new league is hardly failure!! That just goes to show that he wasn't given game time by Van Gaal. If Wenger took the same approach after his first season then Ozil would have been sold too after his first season.
Di Maria has been dreadful so far this season
The two players will meet in the Champions league pretty soon. We will see who's the better player in those games.

Ozil will be looking for revenge - or rather to prove that he's the better player - cos Ancelotti chose Di maria to stay at real over Ozil.
Mangala £32m
Koscielny £8m
Kompany £7m

Carroll £35m
Giroud £12m
Vardy £1m? Whatever he cost from Fleetwood.

Depay £32m
Mahrez £0.5m

Price does not always reflect quality. It is true that quality often costs more but it is a fallacy to argue that someone may be less of a player because they cost less.

+1
The point I was making was that..if a player is worth 40mil, it is because he has proven himself year in year out to be a quality player i.e Ozil proved himself for 4 years at Real madrid as so did Angel di maria. The price tag has nothing to do how he performs at his new club..the price tag represents the the selling clubs valuation of the player, this valuation is based on the player's performance over the years. When the buying club looks to buy a player, they buy him based on the quality he's shown over the years.

Basically when you buy such a player - who has performed at a higher for years - you know what you are going to get; the fans too will know the player and the quality he brings, so in this case the manager doesn't get criticised or questioned on the signing he makes.

The quote from Wenger about 45mil players you posted was a response to reporters questioning his acquisition of Rob holding. He responded that people doubt Rob holding signing because he didn't cost 45 mil.

Well people were right to question Rob Holding signing, he was a youngster who had played only 6 months of first team football in the championship, and he was expected to come play regularly for a top team like Arsenal. Arsenal were in desperate need for a CB when we signed him, and While he has done well so far he lack the experience to last a whole season.

Especially, when Calum Chambers another youngster who was bought under the same circumstances and has not succeeded at Arsenal.
I absolutely sick of football players spending 5 minutes hamming up thier injury. Its pathetic. I can't imagine letting my opponents think they've hurt me, let alone exaggerating it. This game ... its losing me.
Great comparison by Wenger on Xhaka..he really is similar to Petit

http://www.arsenal.com/news/news-archive/20160828/-the-arsenal-icon-granit-reminds-me-of-

btw Word on Joe Hart is that he could join Sunderland
what a step down for hart if that's true.
Arsenal made in Japan... ohhh yeahhhhh
