The player will make a decision that arsenal are more likely then us to qualify over the next three seasons ..... plus the bigger wages ..... plus living in London .... plus playing for one of the worlds premier clubs ..... we do have allendale road to set against Bond Street .... might be a tight call for the lad! (Hopefully he doesn’t have a partner !) 

 

on a serous note, arsenal need a first choice CB - we don’t.  Unless brendan is going to go to a back three regularly then arsenal are more attractive simply on a week to week playing basis forgetting all the other stuff ....

It’s 2020, Arsenal aren’t a serious club anymore

No, but some do start fading away if the owners do nothing

Little old Lestah fighting for this guys signature with Dortmund... not bad eh

True, but it's not like Rodgers can wave a wand and make Wes Morgan's passing Bonucci level for example, it makes sense to buy players who already fit our mould instead of gambling on them fitting it in the future.

Rodgers just made a positive statement about him, check the Wigan match thread. He is potentially going out on loan.

It still is.  He just has enough guys around him to cover for it now as long as we're not up against a team that can smother us with the press (like Man City or Liverpool).

It's a bit different coaching a 36 year old to coaching a 21 year old.

Disagree. He looks forward much more than he used to. Hes not a pirlo but hes made massive progress in this area.

Agreed on Ndidi. I was very critical of his passing ability but it’s come on leaps and bounds. He used to win the ball and give it back to the oppo. Not anymore! Brilliant coaching by Rodgers and the team.

We tend to keep our transfer dealings quiet and the fact that this has been leaked is probably to try and drum up a bidding war. I think we will move onto another target now

Bollox - send him a picture of Bradgate Park along with his contract and it’s in the bag

Big name yes, but currently a relevant big club? They have a disinterested owner, a mixture of ageing and want to leave players, no defence to speak of. From the outside, very much a club in decline and not a particularly attractive option for a player who's already at a much bigger and better club. At least Leicester have a viable dream, brilliant owners, great manager and team spirit with an incumbent Turkish player who could vouch for all of this. I doubt we'd land him but see Arsenal currently as s bit of a rudderless joke.

If we send them Slimani, Silva, Diabati & Ghezzal then put £10 on top of the last offer Juventus could be tempted...:)

Sky recon that Leicester are interested in Merih Demiral on loan from Juventus, Leicester's recruitment team have spoken to Caglar Soyuncu about his countryman. Makes sense.

Why would Juventus agree to loan him out when they are turning down big bids from us and Dortmund? This isnt a Tielemans type case, as Monaco was ready ro move him on. But Juve aren't exactly keen to sell Demiral. Its him who wants out.

Maybe it is his wages as only played 5 games?
