    It has been a good summer so far on a number of levels at Arsenal, a couple very decent players, and what looks like some positive changes behind the scenes.
    But if you believe the media , and especially Jim. white at talkshite, Everton have owned the transfer window. Seems Everton are now getting the media love usually reserved for our neighbours and Liverpool

    Arsenal who have signed one good target on a free as early in June, and have concluded one big money move in July and are earnestly pursuing one more for another big money move can’t be deemed by any pundits to be too slow in concluding their transfer deals this summer. But should be commended for completing them in a record time.

    It’s now looking likely Arsenal will soon conclude a third transfer deal this July before they commence their pre-season friendlies. If the reports in the multiple media outlets are to be relied on, and if AS Monaco will concur to oblige Arsenal by accepting the €45m which Arsenal reportedly offered them to sign their Thomas Lemar, the 22 year old midfielder will in this month of July become a Gunner at the Emirates Stadium.

    Notwithstanding, to increase the numbers of new arrivals to the Emirates Stadium this summer from the 3 originally intended to arrive to 4, can Arsenal upsurge Real Madrid for Mbappe’s signature by doing a Man Utd £75m Everton’s Lukaku outgoing transfer deal to Man Utd plus Man Utd’s Wayne Rooney going the opposite direction to Everton for £15m which brings the total cost of the transfer deal to £90m excluding the payoff of Rooney by Man Utd?

    What am saying is, while Arsenal keep their bid to sign Lemar alive to a logical conclusion. Could they in the process submit a bid of whatever amount of money deemed okay to sign Mbappe plus the £30m rated Olivier Giroud going to Monaco as part of the deal which will reduce the total cash used by Arsenal to get Mbappe transfer to Arsenal done? I think Arsenal should explore this possibility. It might come to fruition.

    Meanwhile, I think Chelsea are stocked as it’s now apparent they can’t sign Lukaku this summer anymore due to maybe their slowness which consequently led to Man Utd hijacking the transfer from them. Chelsea are now left with the options or keeping their Diego Costa or alternatively go after the signing of Alvaro Morata of Real Madrid. A signing that could cost them £90m to do. Hmmm. Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur have appeared to be dormant in the transfer market this summer. Maybe they’re counting on their Harry Kane and Dele Alli force to see them to the PL title next season and thus have become complacent in the market. But in contrast to Spurs inaction in this summer transfer market, Liverpool and Man City have reasonably been active in the market with the duo clubs doing some big money signings already and looking they’ll do more. But I believe Man City’s attempt to price away Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal will ultimately failed as Arsenal will do all they can to block the pricing away by agreeing Sanchez’s wage demand amicably and extend his staying at Arsenal.

    Everton have certainly got serious with over £90 million spent on seven players, and its only 8th July. I can’t see Giroud going there TBH, or even wanting to go. He’s far better off staying put.
    They might be worth a bet at the right price though.

    Don’t want Giroud to go anywhere. He gives us a different dimension of attack when we hit a wall. Lacazette will not replace Giroud in Les Bleus that’s for sure.

  6. Mandy Dodd

    Yes, agree, would rather Giroud stays, I would guess he would want some kind of assurances for game time with the WC coming up though, a tournament his team could easily win this time as well.

    Of all the fantastic business (according to the experts) Everton have done would any of their purchases get into the Arsenal team, or any of the other top six teams for that matter. Probably not.

    With Rooney moving to Everton, is he going to continue to get away with his shenanigans on the field?
