    Mustafi looks a done deal. Boufashi (who is very reliable) says you're in negotiations for Mahrez, I can see that happening as he looked awful in the CS. No point keeping an unhappy player risking his value depreciating

    Mahrez Sanchez Ozil is a very strong front three

    So James Carnell is Tom Ford confirmed?

    Also already reports saying Mahrez has decided to stay at Leicester. I doubt Mahrez is happening. Nice to know we're close to Mustafi though, good signing.

    Apparently English reports are from Leicester, French reports from Mahrez's agent

    Mahrez trying to force a move. Good lad. You could see it in body language in the pre kick off pats he did with his teammates. The little boy in his head is screaming "Arsenal" and he is listening.

    Madness is happening. Mustafi nearly a wrap. Mahrez following Sanogo on Twitter (and setting his location to London) and multiple French Journos/L'Equipe adamant he is on the verge of joining the Gooner squad.

    Fwiw, Mustafi like a picture of Xhaka's yesterday on IG and since then news has moved on very quickly to how the the deal is nearly done.


    ARSENALLLL.

    Looks like Mustafi is on his way. I wonder what defenders will leave, probably Jenkinson on loan. Looking forward to seeing who we play in defence on Sunday.

    I would have thought Debuchy would be more likely to leave unless there are worries about covering CB

    Forgot about Debuchy. Imagine he'll stay for our first few games till we sign a defender or two and then join Galatasaray in a deadline day transfer.

    Sounds about right. I'd be fuming if both left though, Chambers at rb just isn't good enough back up
    Fortunately I don't think we'd let both go

    It was fate that Gotze and Reus became reunited. Reus was on the verge of signing for us according to multiple newspaper outlets including the Telegraph before the WC2014, instead we signed Alexis and the rest was history.

    Fate made Reus wait.

    mustafi + deadline day mahrez..*

    Would be quite a solid window, mustafi, (deadline day pick), xhaka, holding, asano.

    Not bad for us.



    Bellerin - Mustafi - Kos - Monreal

    Has the potential to be a very solid back-line..

    ( I say potential, as Kos has shown to be quite hit and miss with how he works with other people.. and whilst he is GOAT with mert.. no idea how he will be with another guy)

    At least until bellerin ditches us in a year or two *

    Have to admit, I am greatly excited for this deal. It will make Ozil get even better with Mahrez and Sanchez on either side, beautiful football. If we do sign him I can't remember being this excited about the fluidity in the team since the invincibles.

    I can understand Wenger not going all out for Lacazette. If he is waiting for a big big striker signing then fair enough, I think we all know he could buy a good striker if he wanted to. But he has not for a reason.

    Fwiw, my favourite player will still be Elneny though, £5m and a total of £7.4m when possible addons are factored in is craziness. I just love watching the guy play and think he will keep improving. Imo, he should be getting a lot of games.

    Failing to mount a serious title challenge but still coming top 4, that's predictable. There's really not much difference between 2nd, 3rd and 4th, it's like arguing a team who comes between 10th and 12th every year isn't predictable just because they're not in the exact same position.
    To say Arsenal haven't mounted a title challenge in years is a little inaccurate, given they were top for more than half of 13/14.

    Secondly, even if you don't see a difference between 2nd and 4th, there are still changes. For example, Man City have to travel to Romania to play the away leg of their qualifier in mid week a few weeks from now which is a distraction from their weekend fixture. Arsenal themselves nearly bottled a qualifying match against Udinese a few seasons ago, so it's not as though they can know the team they face will DEFINITELY just be easy.

    To say the distance itself between 10th and 12th, a placing which many teams deliberately field weakened sides in towards the end of the season is comparable with 2nd and 4th is straw man at its finest.

    I see Mahrez staying put until next season. Leicester play Hull in two days, so I can't see a deal being done now.

    Which big striker can Arsenal get who's better than Lacazette?

    None, hence we won't sign any striker.

    I don't think its about the money, its whether these players want to come to Arsenal.

    For example Griezmann afaik has a £85m release clause that I think Wenger would pay, but would he join? Lewandowski has big wage demands, would we pay? Yeah. But they have to want to join us in the first place.
