    Cant help but think Grealish would be a good signing for us, Just what we need

    Soo looking at the way we play now with Smith Rowe and Saka our needs have changed a little.

    With Ozil leaving for Fenerbache, Kolasinac for Schalke. Right now I would sell..

    Out:
    Mustafi - Free. Out of contract
    Soktratis - Free. Out of contract
    Torreira - £15-25m.
    Chambers - £10-15m
    Maitland Niles - He's not as good as many think and being a young English player with a fair amount of hype could get £15-25million for him.
    Elneny - £10 Million
    Ceballos - End of Loan
    Luiz - Free. Out of contract (although I think Arteta will renew)
    Runnerson - Loan

    Selling Pepe would be tempting but on recent form for you would loose half the money you spent. Better to give him another year. Would like to ship Willian out but they wont for sure.

    In:
    Martin Ødegaard - Elite level talent. Things ar'nt working out for him at Madrid. Creative player but has an aggressiveness that would be well suited to the EPL. Can play CM/AMF. £45-50m - which may well be cheaper than Grealish or Aouar.
    Neto - GK. Back /Competition for Leno.
    Emi Buendia - No.10 or LW. Skillful Argentine would give competition to Smith Rowe.
    Guendouzi. Back from Loan
    Saliba. Back from Loan

    -------------------------------Leno(Neto)--------------------------------------
    Bellerin(Cedrick)--Holding(Saliba)--Mari(Gabriel)--Tierney(Saka)
    ------------Partey(Guendouzi)----Ødegaard(Xhaka)--------------------
    -------------------------SmithRowe(Buendia)---------------------------------
    ---Saka(Pepe)--------Lacazette(Martinelli)---------Auba(Buendia)---

    Would be great if we could get him in. Looks like Ceballos is going to go back to Real or be sold and if it's the latter I don't think we should be buying him.

    Ceballos has been pretty disappointing we all expected more of him. He had some decent games but defintely has'nt lived up to his potential.

    Odegaard is a class above though. Even if Zidane doesnt seem to like him much.

    Looks like he prefers Sociedad. According to Balague, who's pretty on point with Spanish football.

    We just signed Matt Ryan from Brighton. Completely out of the blue. He's homegrown aswell I think not completely sure how it works but he holds a british passport

    Not a bad signing - 28 years old, Premier League experienced, boyhood Arsenal fan. He's been in poor form this season, which led to his demotion, but was very reliable prior to that. Maybe a change of scenery could do him good.

    90% done? What great business this would be. Hope it includes an option to buy.

    Amazing player - shame it's only six months. If Zidane doesnt get fired we may be in a good position to make it permanant in the Summer though.

    This may spell disaster for Willian and Pepe though as he can play CM/AM and RW.

    We could see..

    -----------------Auba/Laca------------------
    Saka--------SmithRowe------Ødegaard

    --------------------Laca----------------------
    Auba----------Ødegaard-------------Saka

    Or even..

    Auba----------------Laca--------------Saka
    -------SmithRowe--------Ødegaard--------
    ----------------------Partey---------------------

    Either way need need these options - it's just going to make the Willian transfer look even more useless.

    Sokratis off to Olympiakos as well.

    only leaves Mustafi, Chambers to go for clear out of CBS, as keep Luiz for back up.
    So CBs are Gabriel Holding Luiz Mari with Saliba on loan

    just need to get rid of:
    Willian - total waste of money
    Elneny
    Xhaka (still not keen on him)
    Nketiah


    loan out:
    Willock to Championship to get more starts
    Pepe to rediscover form
    Nelson to championship to get more starts

    Rumours of Mustafi having his contract terminated this week also.

    I'm sure they will give Willian until at least the Summer. Arteta seems convinced he can do better.

    Elneny should go for sure - but we need a quality replacement.

    I think we should keep Xhaka - at his best he's pretty good.

    Would keep Elneny

    He's proved to be a very useful back up.
