Ox GONE after Arsenal agree transfer fee with Chelsea

The much talked about transfer of the Arsenal and England international midfielder looks like it is going ahead this summer after all, with Sky Sports now reporting that the Gunners have agreed a transfer fee with the reigning Premier League champions.

This comes after the news was reported last week that the player we signed from Southampton as a teenage prospect turned down a new contract offer said to be worth around £180,000 a week, so it was clear that Arsene Wenger was not going to persuade the Ox to commit his future to Arsenal.

To be perfectly honest, after the performance of the 24-year old against Liverpool at Anfield it feels a lot easier to let him go, as long as the board and our manager make sure they invest the money back into the Arsenal squad before the transfer window closes.

I know that Wenger said he would not sell p[layers to an EPL rival but this does make more sense than selling Alexis Sanchez to either Chelsea or Man City because of the bigger impact the Chilean is likely to have on our season. I have seen reports talking about Arsenal getting something like £35 million for Chamberlain, who is already with the England national squad, and that is pretty good money for him in the final year of his contract.

I cannot help but feel that his time at Arsenal hasd not gone as well as he or any of us hoped, with injury probklems and perhaps a lack of faith from Wenger slowing his progress. Time to move on Arsenal fans, so who should we get to replace him?

Bob.

    Mustafi might leave too.

    Don’t be surprised if Sanchez leaves before deadline

    Who are we gonna sign? With wenger, you wouldn’t know.

    Sad times but Someday we will smile again. WengerLEAVE

      I hope we sell Sanchez too. Maybe wer can bring in Draxler who would work well with Ozil. We need more new blood to change the team dynamic. I’m up for Ozil leaving if we’re not focused on Draxler. A lot of good things can happen in the next four days. I’d be pushing Ramsey out the door if I were Wenger, along with a few others. Arsenal needs a rebuild.

        You forget that with Sanchez gone and Draxler in that would mean you have one less tackler in the starting 11.

          The only way I would want to see Ozil move on is if there’s a suitalble replacement. And I just don’t see anyone that could replace him right now besides maybe Lemar, and he doesn’t seem to want to play for Arsenal anymore.

            It is being reported on the Sun I think that Borussia Dortmund packed with 97M from Dembeles sale will look to replace him with Mesut Ozil. If it’s indeed true I think we must accept an offer for him…he is certainly not worth 280k per week.

              Dortmund have already replaced Dembele with Andre Yarmelinko. Personally I’d prefer Pjanic from Juventus or Isco as both are hard working properly, playmakers that would drive through defences to create goal scoring chances as well as aren’t afraid to put in a tackle to stop and opposition counter attack

        How is Mustafi a done deal? I haven’t heard anything credible about Mustafi leaving at all, nothing. The only sign that it could be true was him sitting on the bench last night at Anfield. Other then that it seems to be all rumors.

          It’s not just rumours. Wenger himself was asked if Mustafi would leave this week after the LFC match and he said he didnt know what would happen, which means there’s obviously credibility about the rumour.

          Arsenal can buy as as many superstars as it wants but that will never change Arsenal’s fortunes as long as Wenger is in-charge. Poor team selection, players being played out of position, questionable substitutions and lack of tactical nuance have been the hallmarks of Wenger’s reign. to add to that is Wengers behavior in the transfer market. Being indecisive, buying the wrong players with last minute purchases.

          Wenger should have submitted his resignation on Saturday but since he has no shame he did not.

          Good question.Weren’t media the same people who said that Arsenal’s first bid was being considered.I remember them saying “Arsenal bid £35 for Lemar which is seriously being considered by Monaco”.Days later we hear”Monaco reject Arsenal’s £35 bid for Lemar which is too small and shows Arsenal’s unseriousness to sign Lemar”.Don’t mind the media.Monaco’s asking price is above or around £60 considering the lateness of the window.To be specific I’d say £60to £65.Liverpool have not even met their asking price let alone the payment plan.Arsenal met their asking price but Monaco wanted the full £65 upfront but Arsenal offered only £35 upfront,£30 installments and £5 add ons.All this is just lies.Unless Liverpool are signing for above £60 this deal ain’t happening

      I think that Oxy has had enough of Wenger and his stupid team selections and at 24 go for it, but can’t see him playing regular for Chelsea on his current play. Conte has something up his sleve on his best position ? Full back ?. This Arsenal squad is the worst ever, except Wilshire who is far better than Ozil and loves his club. Apart from the new signings and the youngsters who deserve now to be selected so the fans can enjoy there fight and skill the rest should be sent packing. Wenger is past his sell by date and Bould who does nothing to inspire the team and his knowledge of the game stinks. Pat Rice had passion and would get of his arse when the team had loss there concentration and throw a few Fu;;is into them. Wenger is the only Manager who sits on the Bench and at end walks straight down tunnel. He can’t get himself to just put his arm around his players and just say well done or you could have done better as they come off.

      Think the club needs a Ferguson type coach who if a player doesn’t perform he is dropped
      Ozil Zacka Bellerin even Sanchez and Ramsey on the bench in Ellnenny Wilshire Mertisaker and the new signings and give Walcott a start and if he doesn’t come up to par out the door
      At least if we drop and bring in others we will know how strong this Squad that Wenger has put together with band aid really is and his know how of the way the game has left him. CB

    He only excelled at RWB (which he doesnt want to play).

    He sucked at RW and CM, has been injured a total of 2 seasons, has scored 9 GOALS in 6 seasons and doesnt want to renew.

    There have been many departures I’ve been sad about, trust me, this isn’t one of them. Plus 35 mils for him with 11 months left in his contract is a daylight robbery for us.

    Good Deal.. One gone 2 to go… But I think Ozil won’t move.. He will run down his contract…. Sanchez will move to City on 30th or 31st August for sure… One positive thing from Ox deal is that at least now Wenger will deploy Bellerin as RB and Kolasinac as LB so Bellerin won’t be playing out of Position…. Our Club is in lot of Jeopardy and I think we will take 5-7 years to recover from all this problems….

              Correct , they signed Andre Yarmelinko so sadly Ozil won’t be going anywhere. We should offer both Ozil and z Sanchez to City in exchange for Sterling and Aguero or Aguero and Fernandinio. We would have a midfielder enforcer and a deadly striker to compliment Lacazette.

      Truth be told although Ox seems to have been indifferent in his play, Bellerin has played horribly. I would prefer him to go on to Barca at this point. I’m pretty sure you can’t rebuild an entire team in four days, well some teams could, but not Molasses Wenger. It takes him 2 decades to put together 11 transfers, but we almost need that kind of drastic shake up. I’m still confused as hell about Mustafi?! If you’re selling Gabriel, how can you also get rid of Mustafi. He hasn’t been that bad. Not to mention now Bielik is injured for a few months. He can’t possibly think that Montreal is going to play at CB all year, right?

        Gabriel should have never been sold, biggest mistake so far, unless Mustafi is loaned out or sold too. Ox never really panned out, I’m glad he’s leaving. Maybe he does better at Chelsea, maybe he doesn’t. But at Arsenal he didn’t add anything. No goals or assists for the most part. Kolasinac already has a goal and an assist under his belt and he’s only been with Arsenal for two months.

      9 EPL goals in six years. He’s another Arsenal player that was in form for a short period of time. He was bound to go back to being useless.

    180k for ox was tooo much let him go. I think we should be alarmed when mediocre players can keep our club at ransom. It is tooo sad and shows how arsenal has fallen. Now we hve 2 options and due to time we will only lean to our youth players to bloom. First option was a complete overhaul but we depended on the wrong man to do it. He picks players due to his sentiments to them how could he deal with flashing his loved ones.
    It has come back to bite him his loyalty as ox has shown him.
    Now looking at our squad i wonder why we didn’t gamble with a new manager as wenger is gonna waste money in panic buys once again

    Good riddance. What has he done with Arsenal? over hyped and injury prone. While he did play well the second half of last season in a RWB role, why should he be so demanding all of a sudden? it really angers me to see (he may well be getting ill advice). this started last year I imagine with him liking the arsenal fan video for “wenger out”. he’s clearly had enough of the current shambolic state of Arsenal. I’m not sure if he is any better than kante/fabregas/babayoko, willian, hazard. yes he is better than moses but isn’t that the position he has a problem with at arsenal?? anyway as I started.

    This is just poor-a$$ man management from AW, again. AW started the OX every single game in the past month, often to the overall detriment of the system (e.g. by leaving out our new LB and playing our RB out of position). It was clearly a last ditch attempt at convincing him to stay. But It seems now that’s all for naught. AW might say that he had to try, but TRYING is not good enough at this level and for the $$ he’s getting paid as a manager. MANAGE! You had a year to figure this out and it HAD to left till the last minute? Everything in this club has now become reactive – from transfers (e.g. AW would’ve done nothing until Chelski’s bid) to team-selection (e.g. his favorites don’t get dropped until we get plummeted like on the weekend). There is no leadership and clear vision for the club on the pitch and off it.

    Yesterday proved that Wenger is no longer able to Manage the Club.His tactics,team selection and ability to motivate no longer have a place within any top level football club.Hopefully he won’t have time to spend any monies received;as this would just be wasted.
    Unfortunately we as fans will have to suffer the ignominy of watching our Club underperform until the Board finally decide that enough is enough.Whilst the Board and the owner have a lot to answer for…at this point in time the blame must be directed at the Manager.”Be careful what you wish for”…has been bandied about over the last couple of years.But does anyone out there truly believe that any other manager would be unable to improve upon what we witnessed yesterday…and for much of the Stoke game.
    If the man has an ounce of integrity left in his body he would step aside…realising that he has nothing more to give.

    I can’t believe Ox is going to displace a starter at Chelsea. They need to increase their English quota; “hello son, welcome, there’s the bench”. After a few training sessions, the coaches are going to look at each other and say, put him with the U23s for now.

    the one positive with yesterdays result and performance is that there is still minimal time left to change things in the window. Buying some real talent such as van dyk, seri as a box to box midfielder for some necessary energy, one of draxler/lemar or mahrez is a must now. I thought there was suppose to be change this season where players like debuchy, gibbs, ox, coquelin, Walcott, Campbell, lucas, akpom were to be sold on top of the ones already gone. Loaning out Holding, Pleguezuelo, Reine-Adelaide, Dragomir, Nketiah for some necessary experience. Promote Bielik, Maitland-Niles and Nelson to first team squad. Very useful for Europa campaign. get rid or mustafi if he wants to go but keep ozil ,sanchez and give Chambers a start. The fear and more the reality is that we will probably end up with Smalling (utd reject), Wilshere back in squad and like a new signing and reliance on Walcott as the winger. no time left in the window so do anything now. oh have mercy!! How did it get to this stage again??? With the current state, Europa league qualification is best we can hope for at end of season

    Defence Wenger!!!!!!!! William Carvalho. We have never needed a player so much. Replace Chamberlain by Thursday with Riyad Mahrez. Are we all starting to realise Wenger may actually be sabotaging Arsenal. The truth can be stranger than fiction.

      Sure does look like Sabotage, especially if we don’t buy a Mahrez and wind up settling for Bellerin as our right winger. Why is bellerin still at the club? Did anyone not watch how bad he was at the Liverpool game? Sell Ramsey, Bellerin, Welbeck, Iwobi, Debuchy, etc. and keep Perez. Even Walcott gave us goals last season, more then I can say for Welbeck, even if he is a hard worker. We use Walcott with the lessor teams, simple. I wonder, could Welbeck be transformed into a good midfielder? He sucks as a forward but might make a decent midfielder? Just throwing thoughts out there fellas. We really do need a team rebuild.

    I’ve never been a fan that gets pissed odd when a player leaves. It their career I respect that.

    But with Ox – I’m pissed

    Let’s be straight, he joined the team at a young age, was given lots of opportunity and rarely delivered.

    Only the last 6 months has he started to perform, and when put in a new role. And he deserts us.

    Chelsea can’t guarantee him games, I bet he’d play more at Arsenal in the next season than them.

    Allegedly turned down £180k – he’s never worth that amount.

    If he leaves, hope he rots on some else’s bench.

    According to reports , Alexis Sanchez has handed a transfer request !!!!! It might not be true but IF it’s true then :

    It’s the proof that he is a cockroach piece of s**t , he could have done that sooner but he was waiting to drain the money out of our club and also if he had handed the transfer request sooner , the club had the time to find a replacement , if it is true then after selling him Arsenal should get him to the court.

    Ox chambo’s stats we’re poor anyway – he knew he was going to be shown the door or about to be sold anyway. iv seen chelsea’s league form this season they not nearly as poor as we are so ox would rather be a sub at cfc than play wing-back. the good thing is we’re not about to miss him as a persistent goal threat (ox lacks end product).

    I can’t understand why we would consider letting our 2nd best central defender Mustafi leave, unless we are getting a better one ie Van Dijk (highly unlikely BTW) . Even if we got Van Dijk, I would still want to keep Mustafi

    As for OX. He is a very good squad player but for £35 million I’m fine with him leaving. He won’t be a starter for Chelsea anyway. Also, I feel uncomfortable us paying him £180,000 per week. He isn’t worth that. We need to replace him though

    If ox is sold for £35 million that means this window:
    Spent £46 million buying Lacazette
    Received £55 million for selling players (Szczesny, Gabriel, Oxlade)
    Kroenke and Wenger will like that

    We should have spent roughly £155 million getting the players we needed. We could have got Lacazette, Lemar, Seri and Gueye for £155 million minus £55 million on selling. That’s £100 million. More importantly those extra 3 players would have improved us big time

    Nelson should replace Ox.
    we need 2-3 top aggressive commanding players. VVD, N’zonzi and Grotazka. Lemar and/or Draxler if Sanchez leaves, or hopefully Lazy-Ozil. go back to 4-3-3. then we might make it into the top 4.
    but realistically, we’ll have “like a new signings” in Whilsher, Campbell and Cazorla. finish 6-7. and steal not sacking Wenger.

Can’t you see that Wenger’s killing the club. What I’d give for manager that was tactically astute, could install in his team strength, discipline and speed. A manager who knew when to defend and when to attack. God, I miss George Graham.

    Its strange with Arsenal, i haven never seen such a club like ours before. The problem with us is that we have sold our soul the moment the main shareholders from the past sold their shares to an american leech who has no interest in the club other then earning money.

    To do so, he has the perfect club. A fan base who is split between those who love the club, and those who love it as well, but somehow think that Wenger is Arsenal, make him out to be biger then the club itself.

    Wenger has no life. He is about to die soon. He has no passion, no wife, no dogs, and money is something he can could care less, as money is just a tool for happyness and his only happyness is being a manager. And with all the money he has, he could not buy a replecment to what he own at the moment. Being a football manager.

    Find something you love, and let it kill ya. Wenger is not doing himself a favour. I am not eager to hate him, but the thing he does to himself is very strange.

    There should be one person who should men himself up and tell him to give up. Its the board duty to sack him and give peave to this club, as we are clearly on fire.

    poor window from a bright start to this, sad but don’t mind him leaving as he doesn’t seem to be interested in the team anymore chelsea woud suit him just fine. but i keep asking myself if he wasn’t going to sign couldn’t we have exchanged him for matic earlier in the window? chelsea and liverpool have been interested in signing him from the start we could have negotiated earlier and replaced him with someone of better quality. the same goes with sanchez, why did the ox play the first couple games of the season if he was going to be sold, and more importantly why was he playing at liverpool shifting bellerin at lwb? why those tactics a desperate attempt in trying to convince one or two players who might not even be with us come next season that they will get playing time? why do we buy two new players and have them on the bench, isn’t laca your 30 plus golascorer and record breaker? why do we never look at the opposition and assess where the threat comes from and set up accordingly, stoke plays deep with direct balls to creative players, liverpool plays high press counter attacking football why arent we more fluid based on the team we face? we might have changed formations but i feel like the players dont receive any instructions and just go with the flow, i havent seen wenger set up a proper tactical team to shackle the oppostions since the 2-0 against man city and that was years ago, maybe the 3-0 against chelsea but that was to get a new contract which he has. the manager has lost his touch and hopes for the best, he wants to end it on a high but it will never happen the FA cup was a perfect sending off . i feel sorry for him a legacy ruined by spineless players he kept his faith in and not walking away. and the board and owner don’t have the football knowledge or the balls to do anythign about it. so here’s to more ups and downs, it’s just gazidis catalyst for change!!

    Finally, it’s a case of good riddance to bad rubbish. Perhaps if Ox had left a week back, so many fans (including myself) would have had a mixed feelings.

    In all honesty the club did well enough to keep him, though it was a case of too little too late. Not accepting the “jumbo offer” considering keeping faith with him over the years with his consistent inconsistencies puts him in my list of unfaithful players. The poor performance at Liverpool sums it up.

    We really need to rebuild and move on now. Let’s put Ox where he belongs – “history”.

    Who is next?

    Until sometime during the Liverpool debacle, I was hoping for a Sanchez contract renewal miracle. Now I feel he should be sold to the most willing bidder, rival or not. I have read so many articles centered on his disappointing wicked smiles after being subbed off and Liverpool deepened our pain. I wonder why so many looked past his lack luster, disappointing, lazy and overall awful performance, laced with no commitment to the team.

    Sanchez is “poison” to the team as it stands right now. I think recouping whatever is possible on him now is in the best interest of the fans, team and the inevitable rebuilding of the team. The best time is now, waiting till end of current season may be too late. Let’s consciously dodge the bullet instead of taking this chance.

      I said it before and got thumbed down but Sanchez’s performance in the second half of last season were atrocious, he missed easy chances, lost the ball while trying too much, didn’t look interested, and supporters forgot all that because he ran around a lot. Wenger keeps going on about strong mentality but if he had strong mentality he would have handled Sanchez differently and maybe things might have turned out differently. Too late now, get rid……..

    The reason for keeping sanchez, oxil and ox to the end of their contract is to hopefully enable us to win the PL. Problem is players leave at end of this season and extra funds to replace them will not be available. I have consistently said they should be sold. Problem now is that even with these players I cannot see us getting top four let alone winning the PL. In fact they may be part of the cause of the current malaise, players not wanting to be there causing trouble. I do not think ozil is in that category, he looked distraught after the pool game. We also need to sell or loan a lot of peripheral players.

    I just hope there is time to sell ox and Sanchez and get decent money for them. The best we can hope for is wenger to leave at the end of this season and be replaced by a top, modern manager and for some of our younger players to come through to the first team and a top half of the table finish. Perhaps Dangote will buy out Kroenke because Arsenals value is going to go down, sponsors are not interested in supporting failures and fans will be reluctant to spend there very hard earned money paying a footballer in a week what it takes them five years to earn, and those footballers cannot be bothered to put the effort in, tracking back etc.

    Many going to use the Ox situation as a means to cuss Wenger, but the fact is Ox is replaceable and will not be a miss, my concern is who is he going to bring in for the other players, so i will sit and wait to see.

    Wenger’s gamble in playing both Bellerin and Ox, in order to satisfy both, backfired, one of the many contributing factors to arsenal Dilemma.
