Wenger confirms with Per out long term we're making the transfer of an experience centerback a priority.

Lots of rumours being thrown around that we're keen on Mustafi.
Mustafi would be great.
Saw a handful of Valencia games last year, and he was class.

Lets see what we do...2 1/2 weeks till Liverpool.
+1
Murillo?
What happened there?
He would be spot on addition, will probably cost around 20m. Same as Mustafi.
Another 40m for Lacazette and we will be done for this window
Lacazzete for 50 or Lukaku for 55/60? 🤔🤔🤔
How about neither of them, and just re-sign Bendtner for free.
+1
Lacazette - £45m, just get it done. He offers us something different to Giroud which is what we need, an alternative type of forward.

Lukaku is quite similar to Giroud, a bit quicker but lacks the first touch and link up play of our HFB so I don't see the logic in overspending for a player built in the same mould as what we already have.
+1
Another (low) bid is being placed. Why playing this bargain game? Just pay the asked price - done and dusted.
+1
link with higuain, lacazette, lukaku, mahrez and end up with ben yedder or jese..mark my words :-), its the arsenal way
meh, so chambers and holding to play CB against lfc ? probably gonna be a sad ending after the match ?
chambers-gabriel

I'm confident about chambers, not so much with gabby to be honest.
Am more confident in gabby than chambers..especially in such a high tempo game
Now who's going to be captain as mertesacker is out? Most likely Cech? The captains curse strikes again
Ramsey ?
Rambo might not be a guaranteed starter. I think Koscielny and Cech have better chances.
Kos as captain, Cech as vice cap.

LMFAO at Luiz and Shaw. OK Shaw is still young, but still those two are soooo out of depth with the others.
+1
Another lacazette bid is coming from Arsenal, reported by L'Equipe
So Mahrez is out of picture i guess. Or we gonna go for both?!
+1
yeah what he said..
We were never in for Mahrez, as usual Arsenal were only interested, nothing more, a least for now.

As for second bid for Lacazette, it is said to be about 40m euro, which is likely to be rejected. Lyon are asking for 50m euro or more, that alone will not guarantee the transfer, instead we will need Lacazette, himself must force the transfer as well.
+2
stop getting hopes up we not buying any impact players. Same old s**t different season. We have a weak squad, they get injured a lot, no steel.
No sense in being impatient when we do our business late in the game. He always says it's a poker game. Someone will pop up all of the sudden and we'll snatch em up.
>>"Someone will pop up all of a sudden and we'll snatch em up."

That is just the absolute worst way to do business. Wait for all the great targets to move to good teams (even potential rivals) while waiting for someone's leftovers or surplus. The worst bit of it all is that we will all somehow convince ourselves that he had a plan all along and give him a pass.
+1
sorry we have no plan, our plan was to buy vardy that was our first choice VARDY, f**k this club
+1
I think this is the point where Cloudst embeds cat pictures
+1
Here comes the Cat Army !!
Wow some of u guys are such downers on transfer news lmao
We keeping it real bruh. 😠
+1
Why can't I edit...
Lordjaggi... Can you edit now? If not please let me know and I'll look into it
Works now😊
It's interesting to watch the Reading 5-7 Arsenal highlights above. Shows how far players like Koscielny and Coquelin have come, how Giroud and Jenkinson have improved, how Walcott has stagnated, how we still could play 4-4-2s then because we had Chamakh, and how goal-line technology has been implemented.

It's not even that long ago, but it shows how hard it is to predict what the future holds.
That Giroud header!
BBC says the epl could introduce winter breaks as there's talks with clubs about it
Nooooooooo winter football's great, something to watch during the holidays other than those shitty Christmas movies like home alone where you've seen them at least 20 times
+1
I'm actually okay with this...We always f**k up our Christmas/New Year games lol
i'm with nowayout we usually f**k up during that time and players get tired big time. A break has been needed for a while now.
+1
I think its more for players health, so they can have a breather.. I think is should benefit us in CL
just make the break before or after christmas
I think it's also an attempt for epl teams to be more competitive in europe
+3
I agree with SIF. Make break, but not Christmas, it's what makes EPL amazing, quality footy on snowy boring day.

However break is needed, I think it's one of the biggest reasons EPL teams struggle in Europe.
+1
lol guys, as I read it, its says winter break not break during christmas ;D
They'll need to anyway for Qatar :P
We should have like 2 weeks off during the Winter period, for instance 2 weeks after Christmas, going into New Year.

2 weeks is a good breather for both clubs and players. We shouldn't take break the whole winter season, then start playing football again in Spring. lmao
YG they not gonna take whole winter off hahaha.. they want to make it like in other leagues where players have a breather during christmas time around 2 weeks.. but i agree it shouldn't be during christmas, before or after, ideally after christmas i think
I would be totally fine with 2 weeks break idea, a day before Christmas, going into New Year. It would give players and fans, as well as managers and their staffs a breather and relax with their family going into New Year/Christmas. The break should start a day before Christmas, it'll give both players and managers to actually spend time with family and friends on Christmas.

Then, continue the season in the second weekend of January, which will push the Premier League fixtures a few more weeks into late spring/early summer; which is totally fine.
If the make it from the 1st or 5th till 20th or 24th
Players to miss opening day vs. Liverpool: Mertesacker, Koscielny, Jenkinson, Ramsey, Özil, Gnabry, Alexis, Asano, Welbeck, Giroud.

That's a pretty strong lineup of missing players. That starting lineup would make top 4 :)
+1
ridiculous
Well lord more than half of them were deep in the Euro's, Copa America and going to Olympics.. so yeah not much you can do about it
The two center backs will be missed. It'll be interesting to see if Wenger move either Debuchy or Monreal into CB or whether he goes with Chambers-Holding. My guess is it will be Monreal-Chambers-Debuchy-Bellerin. You could argue that's 4 full backs haha.

I actually would expect Ramsey and Alexis to make the squad. Perhaps not start, but to at least make the bench. I haven't heard other news that they won't be available. Remember Ramsey missed the SF at the Euro so he had an extra 5 days of rest and Alexis won't need much time to get back to full fitness since he went to Copa.
My Expected Lineup

Cech
Bellerin Debuchy Chambers Monreal
Coquelin Xhaka
Cazorla Wilshere Sanchez
Walcott

Subs: Martinez, Gibbs, Holding, Elneny, Ramsey, Chamberlain, Iwobi
gabriel?
@Sj even if Debuchy doesnt leave I doubt Wenger will try that when Monreal has done a decent job in the past as CB.
I rather see Gibbs start and have Monreal paired up with Chambers.

Also Santi has to play in the middle so we can dominate posetion/ hit counters with Iwobi and Walcott upfront.
Imo drop Coq, start Iwobi.
@GUNNERPERA That's a fair first argument. I think equally likely that it'll be Monreal in CB. What tipped me to Debuchy is that since both Debuchy and Monreal have experience at CB, I thought it'd be more likely to bring a sub into the CB position rather than move a starter who has been rock solid at LB. But I see your argument too because Gibbs is a solid backup.

For Santi issue, I think Santi and Wilshere if played together can cause a lot of problems. They can interchange positions easily. Wilshere is needed because he dribbles a lot and will create space for Walcott. That's why I want him playing in a more advanced role at CAM or RW.

But the reason I chose not to drop Coquelin is because Xhaka is new and with two CBs that aren't going to be 100% comfortable with the system, I thought a defensive-minded Coquelin would be necessary to counter a Liverpool side that has good attacking talents on its team.
+1
@Cannon Assuming Gabriel is still out with injury. If he is fit, it's a no-brainer Gabriel-Chambers pairing IMO.
That lacazette bid was made in June confirmed by sky sports
