Will Arsenal break the bank to seal these 2 BIG signings?

The next few weeks and months will be a crucial time for Arsenal in the transfer market which could have a big say in the potential future success of the club. I do not mean the opening of the winter transfer window in January either, although that could also be important as we try to keep up the Premier League title challenge this season.

What is even more important for us over the next few months is whether Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal board can convince the club’s two biggest players Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil to sign new contract extensions as their current deals are due to enter the final year at the end of this season.

In order to do that it looks like Arsenal are going to have to break the bank and come up with a significant pay rise for the Chilean striker and the German midfield star, as both are asking for over £200,000 a week according to an Evening Standard report.

This would surely break the wage structure at the Emirates but the option is to see our two best players leave in all probability, with top clubs around Europe including Juventus and Man City ready to step in and sign the two Arsenal stars.

Will we cough up the dough and keep these two Gunners do you think?

      Interestingly you know Ozil’s name but you don’t know the name of the player you want him replaced with. But you have a number. Cool.

    Can someone tell me why every english team except Antonio conte’s chelsea plays 4-2-3-1? what’s this obsession with HAVING 2 deep lying midfielders? why not play a 4-3-3 or 4-1-4-1. Every time i’ve seen us play 4-1-4-1 in 2014-15 we were a totally different team.

    1. Budd says:

      Because it would depend very much on against who you play. 4231 pretty much destroyed 343. Mourinho plays 451 or 343, depending on the score. 4231 is not for every team and even Arsenal is not a real 4231 but more like 424 with Alexis and Ozil looking to act as strikers when they are in position. Fake 9’s as they say.

      1. Dennis says:

        when we played chelsea they actually played 4-2-3-1, it was actually because we whooped them that conte changed that system and they’ve gone 6 games without conceeding or a loss. I’m not advocating going 3-4-3 at all, i’m advocating a 442 diamond if wenger INSISTS on playing Ramsay with ozil going to the left where he plays for the german national team or 4-4-3 but like i said, may fav system i’ve ever seen under wenger was the 4-1-4-1. We looked very dangerous and both times we were flying, our players looked like they were enjoying themselves. I think this 4-2-3-1 is perfect for a team that is saying “Hey i don’t trust our defenders, let’s be cautious!” its too pragmatic and very wenger-eske and if we were winning i would say anything but we’re drawing too much don’t you think??

        Mourinho doesn’t play 3 4 3 or 4 5 1 with any regularity.
        He plays 4 2 3 1 regularly with a recognized no.10, a lone striker and a pivot. He played that at Real, his 3 years at Chelsea the second time. Most of the time he played 4 3 3 at Porto, Inter and his first stint at Chelsea. Mourinho rarely plays a 4 4 2 if desperation sets in.

    2. truegunner12 says:

      Because it’s a formation that generally provides the most balance when everything is done well and without any glaring weaknesses and without putting too much emphasis on any particular element. The only team to have played it well and met with any success recently have been the 2014/2015 version of Chelsea. City generally don’t play it much either. I can’t think of any team bar Chelsea who have won the title in England recently with that formation. The problem with the system however is that it needs every player to play their part well enough in isolation so if there is a weak link the system has to overcompensate to cover it and it becomes an abuse ble target. Like Terry and his lack of pace or Azpilicueta being turned into a left back to cover Ivanovic going forward. Leicester don’t play with a 4 2 3 1 either.

      as for what Bud is talking about I don’t know. Conte switched to 3 4 3 and changed the personnel following the Arsenal defeat. We’ve not actually playfpr against the fornation much except when Spurs nullified us and back when Wigan was in the league. I think Hull messed with it a few times as well.

    Sanchez, yes.

    Ozil, no. I was watching the Man U game and Ozil is so lazy in defence. He never presses, just walks around doing nothing. Sell him.

    1. bigperf says:

      Yeah no worries fam will give Wenger a call, I mean the greatest football expect said soo ???

    I think that even Kos the Boss needs to be upgraded in terms of salary. OT: I hope Chelsea beats Spurs this weekend
