  1. As well as we have done in the transfer window, we can always screw it up at the death. Complacency is the big enemy and no way do Arsenal have a squad to challenge, as injuries and fatigue arrive, and that is clear ALREADY. We don’t have the squad and need two more signings. There is still time, even after our top early window. To not finish the job, would be criminal…..to be so close yet so far away from a real challenge, later in the season.

    1. We desperately need a midfield player or we will NOT challenge for the EPL unless by a miracle we have no injuries. Sadly that is already proving not possible.

      1. I don’t get the fuss about signing a midfielder for partey, we have tomiyasu,saliba and holding
        I wouldn’t rush into a last minute panic buy with the options available internally, having watched ben white at arsenal for a whole season i don’t see how he can’t give us what enelny gives us in midfield or even more
        Partey, enelny and ben white can cover that position while we sort it out in the summer
        Tomiyasu saliba Gabriel Tierny/zinchenko
        White xhaka
        This is not a bad option to me

  2. I dont see us signing anyone else ,for all the big players we would struggle to get a deal over the line in the next 36 hours as teams will not be able to replace .
    Unless OFC we get spanked tonight (which I cannot see happening )
    Would have been nice to get in a CM though .
    I could be wrong and we sign another 4 players ,but very unlikely.

  3. I’d be very disappointed if we failed to bring in a DM. Partey’s injuries always will have a beginning, but the end is never known. By the time this one ends, he goes to Qatar and comes back with another one that lasts the remainder of the season!
    I doubt Sambi is ready to carry the defensive responsibilities of that midfield for weeks running, especially with European football in the horizon
    So please, Arteta, Edu, Kroenke, do something. Let this burgeoning good feel of the new not dissipate into a mirage

  4. I don’t think we’ll get a big name player. More of a loan type of cover deal at best.

    I do hope we could wrap up Gakpo though. That boy is magical.

  5. How about Ross Barclay on a short deal if nothing else comes up? He’s a free agent and might sign for a year.

  6. The injury problem is inevitable really. While I respect your opinion on new incomings and will support it if possible.

    I also think this is an opportunity to breed another home grown player in Azeez.

    I personally believe Azeez can become a brilliant cover in the DM position behind Ben White (or Lokonga).

    The guy is 20 now and has be around the first team for some years already. If Caicido of Brighten is getting so much game time and interest at a similar age, why can’t we try out the good young guns in our academy.

    We have had a very good window thus far, but keeping the path into the first team for our academic player is equally important.

    Just look at the impact of Zaka and Smith Rowe when the senior players were becoming complacent. Azeez can inject similar passion and hunger to the team with his determination to play.

    Need to also add the guy is a raw talent in DM.

    Just my view

  7. I watch Azeez regularly. He has great technique but he is a very slow player and doesn’t like intensity. Not sure if he is the answer.

  8. Have no inside knowledge of the inner works at Arsenal, but pretty sure there will be more signing.

    My concern is after having a good window thus far we maybe push into some panic acquisitions, the stones that the builder’s refuse will come surfacing again, Tielemans, Melo etc.

    But Edu must know the next 36 hours could be a deciding factor on how Arsenal finished this season
