    Most of the media do.

    Metro, Independent, Guardian, "Caught offside" LOL

    Even sky sports stated that we've agreed a deal for Khadira :/
    Metro is the most unreliable source according to a study I saw, below the likes of Daily Mail. They hardly get anything right. I don't know why people continually link their rubbish on this thread.

    Guardian and Sky Sports are more reliable, as in, their sources are well respected. Obviously this doesn't mean everything they report is right, but they are simply reporting what's passed on. Sky Sports for example reported that we had a fee agreed with Madrid over Khedira which was true, but personal terms were non-negotiable so that's why the deal fell through.

    That didn't come from Sky Sports sources they were basing off a report from the Spanish Newspaper Sport.

    Would probably believe transfer rumours written on the door of a pub toilet before the Metro/DM

    Are we actually getting any more signings ? Or are we actually going to stick with Arteta? Who, imo, is a much bigger problem than Giroud.

    definetly more signings.. just maybe not the ones we want.

    GK and CB seem very very likely, wasnt a GK as good as confirmed the other day?


    Just the DM/ST that seems very questionable..

    If vermaelen goes does the captaincy immediately go to arteta? I feel we need a cb definitely now and a DM should be still a priority.

    We will certainly get a gk (ospina) and backup cb. I am pretty sure we'll then splash a bit more on a DM/cm and that'll be it. Don't see us signing a striker.

    Not necessarily, typically does not always. Per Mertesacker is 100% the best option for the captaincy, and even if he doesnt get it he is the leader of the team.

    Yes, he is the best without question. He reprimanded Ozil for not going over to the fans at the Etihad, after which Ozil apologised. Ozil could easily have behaved like a child and gone in a mood; the fact that he didn't suggests that Meresacker commands the respect of the players and his leadership qualities are plain to see.

    I'm not ruling out buying a DM just yet but it wouldn't surprise me if Wenger is thinking this way. Would be a shame.

    In old Arsenal times, this would have happened. Fingers crossed.
    It's such a Wengeresque thing to do though, hope he continues to make good signings like we've seen so far..
    And Wilshere's so injury prone, would be very risky doing so anyways juss sayin.

    :rofl: would love that

    Sky Sports says we're interested in Nastasic and I would be happy with him.
    If we get Nastasic though :ahee:
    I've always been a quiet admirer.

    Yeah that's very true. He's not necessarily a great talker on the pitch but there is definitely a leadership presence that is reassuring I think. What I like most about Per is that he really seems to make an effort to connect with the fans and has a real passion for the team I think. After games he's always the last one(along with Wilshere) to stop applauding the fans etc.

    Per just seems like a great guy as well tbh in his interviews, should be proud to have someone like that as captain.

    Or it suggests he didn't want to damage his PR

    Was stupid from mertersacker leave it to the changing room ozil got slated in the press because the supposed leader of the team brought attention to something so trivial

    He is a great talent and reads the game very well for his age. The last season under Mancini I would say he was their best defender, behind only Zabaleta maybe.

    I don't see this Nastasic thingy happening. I so hope it does tho. He reminds me of Terry a few years back. Would be a sensational buy.

    I don't see it happening either, seems to depend on too many things and with Roma and Inter interested City could easily off-load abroad. Its a shame because technically he is very good, quick and could fit into a high line very easily. The only weakness in his game is his decision-making but that will get better with age.

    He does kind of strike me as a mercenary though, dunno why...
