    Can I have a link to one of those journos? I just googled and only metro and goal.con saying it. All others are from 4 August when we were in for him as well as Sami khedira.

    dont think it would be suprising that a layer would pick us over united - considering the state of each clubs that should go without saying, before money is taken into cosnideration..

    But that is meaningless as united may offer more money, or may make an offer at all - compared to arsenal who god knows what we will do.. probably nothing.

    yeah cheers i must have been typing as you posted it how reliable is that guy on twitter ... I don't usually get into all the twitter gossip...

    I really hope its true but I won't get my hopes up..
    1) why have we waited so long, yes sporting dropped asking price but that was reported awhile ago, was it for CL ?
    2) what to stop utd coming in and doing a chelsea on us and offering more money etc... they are getting depressed, and we all know wenger doesn't usually raise his prices.


    I want a DM, I prioritise this over a ST.

    If you read it, the journalist who's reliable states that Carvalho is the preferred move.

    This Remy link is an odd one. We've had all summer to sign him or anyone for that matter, suggesting that we've gone in half arsed with with offer for Remy at the last minute to almost look like we are interested, but in reality are only doing so the appease the fanbase.

    He's considered reliable.

    Carvalho is partially owned by a third party agent which has caused an issue, and his agent is Jorge Mendes (a super agent), and he doesn't really deal with Arsenal.

    Carvalho looks like he's got his heart set on Arsenal. Chelsea don't need him.

    Tbf though I think Wenger never really wanted a 'proper' striker, he's probably just gone in for Remy now cos of Giroud's injury hence why we didn't go in for him all summer, he's thought about it now.

    Oh and also just found this:

    "The reason we've waited until now to sign Remy is because his release clause has three levels:
    CL clubs: £8m
    Top 6: £11m
    Others: £15m"

    Arsenal could be closing in on the signature of Torino's Alessio Cerci after the 27-year-old forward was left out of the Italian side's squad to face Inter Milan on Sunday. (Daily Star)
    The Gunners are also hoping to sign Southampton's French midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin, 24, having agreed to meet the player's £27m price tag. (Caught Offside)

    why does the bbd even publish this stuff

    £27m for Schneiderlin? Yeah no.

    Someone's just sitting there in an office typing crap on their computer, laughing.

    I think he's worth around the £18m spot? I'd go no more than £23m tbh.
    Certain clubs have become the epitome as to why certain players have become overplayed for.

    Agreed, but it's from the Star so what would you expect? Some chap working for them would quite happily go "Cristiano Ronaldo due to have medical at Arsenal on Monday after gunners reach £450m release clause."
