    I really hope Gabriel starts for the rest of the season to be honest, really want to see that beast's potential.

    If Wenger has already ruled out a defender, and says that we are likely not to sign a keeper.. what on earth are we planning to do in the market in this summer :lol:

    We already have Coquelin, don't need multiple players on the pitch with batmasks, it would look like Comicon.

    What is it with Chelsea appropriating Arsenal songs? Quite a few examples now

    I wouldn't give more than £35m and Podolski, although I'd rather do that for Reus than for Cavani.

    So the 'specialist in failure' Wenger has said we will not sign any central defenders in the summer. This is what he said.

    Four is enough," Wenger said."(Mathieu) Debuchy can play there, (Nacho) Monreal can play there, so you can say we are not out to buy a central defender."And Gabriel will be a great central defender, believe me."
    agree with him - we dont need another CB

    We have 4 CBs and 2 other defenders who can play there..

    More than enough

    Who are you getting then? Or what do you think Wenger wants? I mean will you really sign a striker with Giroud, Welbeck who was only signed last year, and now seemingly Walcott, for one position?

    And what about DM? Does Coquelin get benched if you bring in someone like Schneiderlin? Hard to see what Wenger wants to do this summer. You have an absolute tonne of wingers and full backs too.

    all the gossip seems to be around a foward (pedro being the most rumoured) and a CM (obviously schniderlin gets all the talk)

    Those 2 positions seem to be wengers priority, especially as its looking more likely that walcott could leave.

    Your right that it is less obvious this year - we have one of the more complete squads we have had in a while, and unlike the last 2-3 summers, there are not absolute 100% must sign gaps in our team..

    I would expect to see some departures though - one of flamini or arteta to leave, and be replaced by a better CM, a couple out of Podolski walcott campbel to leave.. sanogo to go on loan again, etc.

    Personally I would like us to sign a great goal keeper, as I feel at the moment we just have 2 good keepers, who are both solid, but not up to the standard of our rivals (DDG/Courtoir/Lloris) - but wenger has already ruled this out.

    I would think:

    Foward (striker, or player who can play striker or on the wing)
    CM (not as defensive as coq)
    + a promising youngster or two

    Would probably be our summer

    Mertesacker is past it, Koscielny is injury prone, Gabriel I can't judge him I aint seen enough and Chambers is a kid. I would buy another CB especially if he doesn't want a striker.

    No man. Cavani is good, obviously, but way too inconsistent. He's hit a good form over the last few games but he's been **** otherwise. Didn't you see him vs Chelsea or Barca? Reason why I would rather not go for him is because his price tag will be really ridiculous. He's worth like, £30m max right now imo.

    Benteke has 11 goals in 9 games, and in a harder league too.. doesn't make him world class does it?

    Honestly, I would be much much happier with Lacazette over Cavani

    mert has had a really solid 2nd half to the season - a lot of his problems in the first half can be put down to: world cup fatigue (see most german players) kos' injury, and the dire form our our midfield..

    As long as he has kos, mert will do a job of a high-enough standard for us.. but it looks from what wenger is saying, like he will be phased out for gabriel anyway..

    Kos is not that injury prone.. he has never had a long-term injury, and has only twice in his career missed more then 1 month.

    Gabriel - your right, we cant judge him yet.. but the thing is, if we had not brought gabriel in january, then he is the exact type of player wenger would have brought in the summer.. realistically we were never getting anyone better then him. a defender with a reasonable track record for 10-15m. so really, he is our new signing, the only difference is that wenger got him in january rather then the summer.. which is great as its given him more time to bed in and train with the team, before hopefully he replaces mert.

    Chambers is a kid, which is fine for our 4th choice who is barely ever going to play.

    A pecking order of:

    Kos
    Gabriel
    Mert
    Chambers
    (monreal)
    (debuchy)

    Is pretty good for that area, and the only way I can see it changing is if we were to sell mert. but really, if he does become our 3rd choice, then well, he is more then capable of being our back-up defender

    Laca would be perfect for us really, I'm just scared Liverpool, Chelsea or United will bid something ridiculous for him.
