Arsenal should go all out for this “absolute bargain” at just £25m

Now the transfer window is open, I am sure there will be many big moves being announced, but there will be very few unveilings until the international break is over and the players have had theeir two week’s holiday, so please remember to be patient as every club likes to make a marquee announcement on Deadline Day if possible.

But going by all accounts (and looking at the bookies prices) Arsenal are very hot favourites to sign Gabriel Jesus and Youri Tielemans this summer. Jesus is expected to be allowed to leave Man City for around £50m, which may or may not be a bargain as only time will tell, but according to Charles Watts, we should be able to get a super bargain price to bring in Tielemans. Watts told his personal podcast: “There’s talk from journalists in and around the Midlands that £25m might be enough.

“For me, that’s an absolute bargain for a player of Tielemans’ quality. If you can get him for £25m, then you just get it done as soon as possible.”

I can’t help but agree with Watts, and if Arteta can get both him and Jesus tied up as quickly as possible, it would be a fantastic start to our transfer window, and if we can get them both well integrated into the team before the season starts it will be a big boost for Arsenal fans.

The new 2021/22 EPL fixture list will be released on Thursday, and I hope we get an easier start than last season…

  1. Tielemans isn’t a DM, I can’t even read this article because of that picture. If you play Tielemans in the DM position, you will pray for Xhaka

  2. 75 million on 2 players in their final 12 months of their Contracts does not seem like much of a bargain to me especially as Jesus is not even wanted at Man City ,unfortunately clubs know that we are going to pay more than we should have to because of the pathetic end to our season and screwing up getting CL football .
    And having a midfield consisting of Xhaka Tielemans and Odegaard personally does not excite me one bit ,slow lumbering ,but good on the eye passing sideways endlessly but lacking pace and power which is something we have been missing for years.

    1. DK I agree with your first paragraph. And as to your second para, NO team with XHAKA in it can possibly excite me.

      Also agree we have lacked real pace and esp power, throughout the team ingeneral(though NOT every player but many) ever since around 2006.
      In fact, ever since AW changed policy in favour of ditching physically powerful players in favour of nine/ten stone dwarfs, esp in midfield, plus weedy Bellerin of course.

    2. Shame, can’t see Tielemans as A DM so which position does he play and honestly on him it’s a bargain but for Jesus I do agree with you

    3. I agree you bro
      We need someone with the qualities that we lack. Someone like Danilo who seem most technical gifted than some of our mids is a deal to chase.

      We need player not names
      Tielemans is absolutely slow, elneney and lokonga the some. We need xhaka and partey esques who are more mobile and agile if not we should have stayed guendozi instead

      Interm of a striker I would like to have Calvert lewins or ole watikins rather than jesus. We don’t want hit and miss striker or those prone to injuries

  3. I’d luv to see a Partey/Bossuma partnership in our midfield protecting our back 4 or 3 depending on what formation we choose to deploy. That protection would give our defenders and forwards confidence to impose themselves on games and reek havoc regardless of whom MA8 decides to field on the day.

  4. Tell you who I like is that little Italian winger who came on for 20 minutes young fast good on the ball and strong aswell could get him for 30-40 million that will be a great deal

  5. I wonder what Edu and Arteta see in Tielemans, I personally don’t fancy him,
    I would prefer Amadou Onana paired with Partey and Xhaka/Tielemans,

    Oedegaard is a great player but lacks pace and strength, necessities to thrive in the EPL,

    The lack of pace and strength in the midfield has been the reason our defense has been under pressure in a lot games,

    I just hope Arteta surprises us as he did with Tomiyasu.

  6. @Longbenark
    Lack of pace and strength isn’t our problem in midfield. We lack a player who breaks up play and can recycle the ball easily. Our midfielders seem solely intent on either bombing forward or sideway passing. AMN was the last player to put in a decent shift in midfield, where he concentrated solely on breaking up play and recycling the ball. He was never heard from again…IJS

  7. MA & EDU are just fighting for there country men, each wants to see the players who come in are there fellow country men but for us we need right players at the right time period.

  8. We only lack peacy mids but intern of possession and distribution we have xhaka and partey. We need speed and accuracy in distribution and covering

    Danilo and bisouma
    Inside 10 – Smith rowe who are guaranteed score should be opted
    With one addition who are pacey distributor and magical chance creator up front
