Arsenal formally open talks over potential €15million transfer

Arsenal have contacted Reims about Axel Disasi.

Arsenal have reportedly made formal contact with French club Reims about a potential transfer deal for Axel Disasi.

The 22-year-old defender is said to tick all the boxes for Arsenal in their search for new defensive recruits this summer, and could cost around €15million, according to Goal.

While Disasi may not be the big name many Arsenal fans are craving, it does seem like our scouting has improved in recent times as we’ve unearthed a few gems who were not exactly superstars before they made the move to north London.

Matteo Guendouzi and Gabriel Martinelli were virtually unknown youngsters before joining, and are now key players for Arsenal who look to have a very bright future indeed.

Pablo Mari is not the youngest, but is another who has performed surprisingly well since joining us on loan from Brazilian club Flamengo.

Still, we remain a little short in defence and Disasi looks a promising talent who could help us to continue improving under Mikel Arteta, and it looks like work is already underway to bring him to the Emirates Stadium.

    I like this guy. He is big and strong. Quite wild in his tackles though. But that’s something for senior Arteta to fix. Compared with Upa, he is better built, he is faster, a better tackler, a better passer – and he is a braveheart. He have a fighting spirit that the fans at Ashburton will love. And hopefully, we can get him to a much better price.

    Price around £13.5m being thrown about. For that price yes get the lad in along with Saliba coming from loan to replace Mustafi & Sokratis.

    OT though I had read online and mentioned on here yesterday if we are really interested in Thomas Partey from Athletico Madrid we may well see Lacazette going in the other direction.

    I like Laca but he may have to go and Martinelli I believe can straight up replace him or move on the LW where Auba has been playing and then our Captain gets up front where he should be with a new 3year deal. Could be smart business.

    3 major deals without much money spent and the spine of the team with Saliba, Axel and Partey. All rumours but positive ones.

    The key point in this article is about having scouts and those in charge who really CAN identify rising stars before other clubs do and then sign them for low fees. MARTINELLI AND SAKA BEING TWO OBVIOUS EXAMPLES. Our days of paying around£50-£60 mill arelong gone, also for MOST other Prem clubs, with possible exceptions of the two Mancs. Even the two Spanish giants will have to cut their cloth accordingly from now on and all this will massively change the general level of transfer fees.
    Simply put, the two biggest club expenditures , at top club level anyway, are firstly wages and secondly incoming transfers. Since footballs available income will fall by upwards of 30% or more, it is CERTAIN that both those areas of spending wil take a huge hit.
    In fact, a year from now this silly argy bargy over being asked to accept wage cuts of a paltry 12.5 %, still and disgracefully NOT YET AGREED, will be looked on fondly by players everywhere, who will be forced by world and football economic reality to accept far more deep cuts. Though it must be said they will still live in clover. Why only a few can see this I fail to understand and I surely must accept that not all are stupid. Mustn’t I? JUST WILFULLY BLIND, MAYBE?
