    Martins is not yet free. There was rumor we had an offer rejected and that he was not happy about it. If this is true, and he eventually becomes free, we should stand a good chance of landing him. And that would be great.
    I also thought we were going to get Meyer until I read he was going to Hofenheim and then we went for Toreirra. Not sure Arsenal would have both seeing they’re very similar in playing style . But as a freebie, Meyer wouldbe worth having any day.

    Great little article, like your style. Chirpy comes to mind. It felt upbeat. And I note you see the ability to raise around £60m and agree that Meyer is a distinct possibility and given Sven went to deal personally bodes well and epitomizes the value of that acquisition. Being something much akin to the player Jack once was, if not more In certain arenas.

    I do see ability amongst your other targets, but prefer my own obviously.

    Much of what has already been achieved is down to the excellent foundations built over 22 years, but more, the use of the last 3-4 Windows, especially this January.

    With some more astute purchases, the future indeed looks bright.

    IWIT so I am hopeful and remain faithful on the basis that our targets had already been identified, with Meyer and Stephen prioritized along with maybe a few others.

    I am hopeful Golovin has ushered from Arsene’s lips and remains firmly lodged on that transfer list.

    Every season the team goes into every competition with the intention of winning it.
    Why limit that to only 3 competitions now?

    Nice article if you was talking about ‘fantasy football’ but we are supposedly discussing real world so I can not see us going any further with defensive signings: Leno, Lichtsteiner (as I understand just on 1 season contract), Torreira ( still a ‘?’ until after World Cup).

    In regards to any attacking players or further midfield incomings, we would have to sell at least 2 players before we sign any new ones. We have Xhaka, Ozil, Maitland-Niles, Elneny, Ramsey, Mkhitaryan. Since first 4 have all extended their contracts in the past few months, it would mean a major change in direction and a sale of a big player such as Ozil ( who may not fit the style and schematics of Emery) or we would need to put Elneny on market as he is the only one that extended while still under Wenger.

    Further up front we have Iwobi, Welbeck, Aubameyang, Lacazette. So either of Welbeck or iwobi would have to leave if we wanted to add another winger/striker.

    Huy, I’m sure Palace go into the season thinking they can win something whilst doing well in the PL, but the top teams (not Palace) start every season believing they can win everything. They’re the top teams for that reason.
