Could be a decent change for Arsenal. by Sean O’Hara
Arsenal have been linked with everyone on the planet once again, but now we have a new a structure in place where everyone has job to do behind the scenes whether it be recruiting, hiring or scouting, Arsenal have been making great moves to make sure the club comes first instead of a one man band.
With new links with the new directors etc… at the club, we have been linked with some pretty decent players considering we are last in the Top6 in England to be frank about it & have been on a sort of downward spiral so to say.
This is a little off topic but Liverpool have been building since Jurgen Klopp took charge, its took 3 years & now they are building one hell of a team so hats off to them. Spending their own money! We have to do the same.
We make huge amounts of money through commercials, sponsors etc… so why not just spend what is actually the club’s money for a change & looks like we might just be doing that. There won’t be massive investments until we reach our target of getting back into the top Four and the Champions League. So we have to be smart for the sake of the club as Unai may not be the man but time will tell & I will be right behind them all.
We all know what we need but everyone has different respected opinions so we will be realistic here! Looks like Sokratis (£16m?) is already in along with Lichtsteiner.
Soyuncu’s agent confirmed we are in serious negotiations, could be shrewd price of business for maybe now but certainly for the future. Talking about signing the big CBs of the football world is very unrealistic & out of our price tag considering where we are at as a club & can’t be silly as Europa money & finishing 6th doesn’t cover a lot to be fair. €35m apparently.
Lucas Torreira is another we are in serious talks with a release clause of €25m (£22m). Small but feisty CDM that we have been crying out for who’s aggressive, loves the fight of a challenge & is very young, but that leaves us with not a lot of money left and a small (in size) middle of the park – so that brings me to my next man who’s very big, loves a fight, has loads of PL Exp & is free…. Marouane Fellaini & we are heavily linked with him. Rather him than N’zonzi for £35m.
People will criticise me for this one but he would beef up our midfield that we need badly, as Xhaka, Jack or Elneny are not the sort of aggressive players needed to dominate a game or make an impact from the bench. Ramsey too, but I like him further up the pitch as his defending isn’t quite there but bombing forward he is excellent. Torreira, Fellaini & Ozil isn’t a bad trio in the middle instead of Elneny & Ramsey or Xhaka.
GKs; we have been linked with a few but nothing concrete or as much publicised bar Leno who looks to be away to Napoli, so I wouldn’t really know who we would be going for next, as well as a RW, preferably left footed. If you lot have heard anything please update me through the comments. The Dembele loan from Barca was the only one I really heard of but apparently he is going nowhere. Greizmann is on his way to Barca next week so where does he fit in with Coutinho behind the front 3 of Greizmann, Suarez & Messi?
We could have a right good team heading into the new season if it goes this way, maybe one or two heading out in Ospina, Jack & Welbeck!
What do use think of the possibility of these few additions in this lot? And maybe a GK & RW?
We have the money there’s no doubt about that, along with a new coach in Unai Emery & and he will exactly do that – just coach. That sounds okay to me as now it’s all eyes on the board & this ‘catalyst of change’ we have all heard. To be fair we have seen a few new faces in the scouts, coaches, directors etc… So hopefully now the change is focused solely on the squad now that the revamp is done for backroom staff. Maybe see a few more new faces along the way, even old ones returning!
