    Ew, no. They need Cavani now that Ibra is injured, which will bump up the already exorbitant price. €40m + Giroud for Ibra and I will die of joy.
    Which is exactly why Giroud could be included. His wife apparently wants to go back to France as well. He's French which increases his value to PSG.

    Whether Wenger would do it is a different question.

    I agree he should be included, but for Cavani I would only go up to maybe 30m + Giroud. Ibra is so much better in that duo. Besides, Giroud is (painful to say it) a good option for 2nd choice or 3rd choice striker, so if we include him in a deal I would say we still need to go out and buy a decent 2nd striker, like what Liverpool did with Balotelli.

    He's been playing out wide for PSG. He's so much better than Giroud. We should be trying to get rid of one of Giroud or Poldi in the deal.

    Cavani has been playing through the center just as much as Ibra. He may be called a 'winger', but when you watch him he scores almost all of his goals by running straight down the middle. He may be better than Giroud, but he simply is not good enough to rely on every game for 50+ games. I am saying that if we get him, we will still need a back-up striker.

    I think Galatasaray are absolutely thirsting for Podolski, and Wenger told them they can have him for the right price (they wanted Campbell as well but he said no).

    More of an issue is Sanogo is second choice. Completely useless. No idea how someone so awful can play for us.

    You probably dodged a bullet with Balotelli.

    Giroud plus money for Cavani, with PSG using the money to keep on the good side of FFP in buying a proper winger in Di Maria? Could happen...

    So hoping that we get a DM ... Hopefully carvalho I hope the CL qualification is the main reason for the delay recently... I prioritise DM over striker and I don't think we will get a striker.

    I'm sure we will sign someone... there's too much work to be done to give us a shot at the title this year though.

    You'll sign Cavani or Lavezzi, allowing PSG to sign Di Maria. Quote me when it happens.

    That's like every Arsenal transfer window. Honestly has been sideways rather than going backwards which isn't too bad. You have more than enough to secure top 4 anyway and the injury crisis prevented a few points.

    It's not all doom and gloom but you're just lacking that setup to win a league title, you can beat little teams but your slow tempoed play gets caught out by big teams.

    We'll see. Big test at the weekend. If we can get through convincingly I'll feel more confident about being actual title contenders.

    Although I hope Wenger sees the writing on the wall. The current team isn't working and he hasn't rotated for 3 games now. I'm not sure how ready Ozil is considering he was a key player at the WC but I'd like to see a front 3 of Ox - Campbell - Alexis anything else and else be disappointed
