Ornstein provides Deadline Day update on Arsenal strikers

So Deadline Day has finally arrived and Arsenal fans are feeling decidedly underwhelmed by Mikel Arteta’s transfers deals, well to be fair, there hasn’t been any new arrivals at all so far with just 12 hours to go!

There has apparently been a late bid from Crystal Palace (again) and Newcastle, but, just like the summer it would appear that Eddie is determined to leave on a free transfer and it looks like Arteta is going to need Nketiah to cover for injuries for the rest of the season anyway if our other striker deal comes true.

But the big story today (in fact the only story in my eyes) is the possibility of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang making his long-wished move to Barcelona. So this morning’s update from David Ornstein tells us that that deal is still in discussion…

Well, I can admit that I was pretty certain that Nketiah would not be going anywhere, as I have a sneaking suspicion that the youngster has had a secret agreement with someone since last summer with a promise of a massive signing on fee. But I doubt that it would be a big team as I honestly don’t think he can handle scoring regularly at a top level team, but if his new boss sets the team up to target Eddie in the box he may come good one day.

But Aubameyang, I simply don’t understand how it all went so bad so quickly. I’m sure it will all come out in the futture (All or Nothing?) and I can’t wait to find out!

  1. It’s a great decision that Eddie Nketiah will remain if he will be given opportunities to do great things in Arsenal Football Club. He falls really within the Club’s preferred age bracket for strong foundation of ‘invincible’ Arsenal.

  2. Mari AMN on loan is of no consequence while Chambers and Kolasinac were going on a free in June anyway. A CB or RB has to be coming in with Chambers, AMN, Bellerin and Mari all on loan. Maybe we are getting Phil Jones on loan from Man U :). Striker, midfielder or both or neither? Isak “appears” to be one target but Laca 50m Auba 60m Pepe 72mill have all underachieved so should we be throwing another 60/70 mill at any one? I think 2 players will come in maybe 3 depending on how the cards fall

  3. I don’t think we are going to sign anyone today, sky are reporting that only auba could leave and that’s it, no incoming players !!!
    Origi only has 6 months left on his anfield contract so why not try and grab him? at least he knows where the net is unlike our waste of space strikers
    Disappointing window for sure 😒
