    Reports today of a £50mil bid for Sterling, even if the guy is worth that much (which is debatable), do we really need another CAM?
    £50m?
    Take him.

    Hitting their peak at 24, so their peak would be about 24-27

    Aguero is 26 and has been performing at the same level for 2 or 3 years now.
    Suarez is just turned 28 so his best season was 26-27
    Ronaldo has basically been performing at about the same level since he joined Real aged 24, and he won WPOTY aged 22. Goalscoring wise his best season was 11-12 when he was 26

    Other examples are Villa - at his best around 2008 age 26, Torres - 07-09 age 23-25, Rooney - 09-12 age 24-27
    Aguero I agree with and Ronaldo to an extent. But all the players I've mentioned peaked at 26, I'm not going to say Welbeck is going to improve to become a top striker in the next 2 years but he definitely should improve a fair amount from now.

    Take him.
    I would probably be just about happy if we got him for £40,000,001, not a single penny more though

    Haha, touché

    He'll be leaving us in a matter of years anyway - would be great if we could keep him but we know we'll lose him soon.
    We just want to up his value as much as possible.

    Somebody with a £50m bid is exactly what we want.

    Wilshere, Debuchy, Arteta and man like Diaby all played against a Brentford XI at Arsenal's training ground. I think the Liverpool game will be too soon though but it's nice to have them back (Obviously Diaby will not play).

    Haven't heard anything about Ramsey and Welbeck though, I honestly doubt they're injured. Probably just pulling out of the international games.

    true - I would definetly say his league performances have been very dissapointing.

    Made up for it somewhat in other competitions though. 3 goals in the Champions league, and a crucial goal in the FA cup - is good.

    But yeah, in the league he has been poor.
    Three goals in one match only

    Tbh I don't know whether his attitude would fit in at Arsenal. He seems like a real self-entitled, lazy, arrogant little prick. Don't think Arsene would allow a player to take a mid-season break, especially a fresh faced 19 year old.

    Doesn't he have like 3 kids with 3 different mothers or something?

    I hear he's set to partner Harry Kane in strike with Rooney behind them in a diamond.

    Also has anyone realised we don't realt have a playmaker in the England team ? I mean we have players who can run at defences like sterling, ox, wilshere etc but no one like a cesc or ozil or silva of the team. I guess maybe wilshere is the closest or Rooney and then we did have someone like Scholes who could pick a pass and Gerrard to an extent.

    Tbf to Sterling, he carried Liverpool for half a season and played almost all the games with barely any rest, it would have been farcical for Rodgers to not give him a mid season break otherwise his legs would have broken down. It's not like Sterling asked for it, Rodgers practically ordered him to take a break for the good of him and the team.

    Sterling only has one daughter. The 3 kids from 3 different mothers was just a rumor spread on the internet. If Jack Wilshere can fit into Arsenal, I'm sure Sterling would do just fine .

    Yep, pretty nailed on given Hodgson's pre-match comments.

    Haha that is true, but he seems to think he should get preferential treatment, it's not necessarily a bad thing knowing your limits but I can't really see where he'd fit our current system.

    Ahh that explains it, I thought it sounded a bit odd at the time but never bothered to check whether it was true or not. God people on here really do hate Wilshere, he's got that chavy ******** vibe but when he's on form he's a great player to watch

    don't underestimate him though.
    he hasn't been amazing recently but as samir said, when he's in a good run of form he can absolutely carry teams at times.

    he's a 20 year old footballer playing as a key man for one of the biggest teams in england - you can expect him to be a little arrogant and self-entitled.
    he has no ties to liverpool and he just wants to do what's best for his career.
    moving to a massive team like madrid would be stupid, but arsenal could offer him game time and they could offer him a higher level of football right now.

    True, but Liverpool selling to us now would effectively be them saying that they don't care about challenging for the cl spaces for the next few years until City start to get hit with the new regulations

    Stirling for 50m would worry me so much.. but also excite me.

    I mean, a player at his age, who is that good? that would be amazing to have...

    But its so so much money for someone who for all we know, could entirely fail to adapt to swapping to a different club..

    not really, it would say that for 50m you can have a 20 year old that wants stupendous wages.

    personally i don't trust our transfer team in spending any money we get from selling our best players, so i'd rather keep them.
    however if we do sell, all i can do is hope that we don't overspend so much.

    markovic, lallana and lovren cost £65m.
    i'm not saying all 3 are terrible players, but that's a lot of money to spend on players that don't really improve us all that much.
    obviously they do help with squad depth, but i really did expect more from the money we spent in the summer.

    that's exactly the issue that anybody who owns him will have.

    as somebody mentioned in the LFC thread, he is more or less the best 20 year old in the world.
    that being said, he isn't a 150k player right now and for 50m you're buying his future in the hope he continues development in to a world class player.

    that's a big gamble for a team like arsenal to make - if it payed off it would be huge though.

    In general they're pretty similar, but right now based on form I'd say Monreal. But I've supported the guy for a long time even when others have said he's **** so I'm probably a bit biased.
    I know what you mean, thats like me. At times when I was at the Emirates I was probably the only guy in my area who cheered his name haha.
