Great deal.


8M is a lot better than the 20M that the article Jay had shared was suggesting. At 32 years of age, anything over 10m would be excessive.

He was still a class player, is great on the ball, and it's definitely not a foregone conclusion that the other guys we were in for are better players at this moment in time (except for Umtiti). Hopefully he can have a great year and our younger CBs step up as well, even if he isn't the long-term solution we were hoping for and there is risk involved.

So both Luiz and Tierney.

That's great. We've done good business this window actually.

Tierney done, Luiz in the morning, Coutinho in the last minute. I love this game.

Tierney finally on the way, provided he passes a medical. Fingers crossed his hip doesn't cause any issues.

Luiz I'm indifferent on. Could be okay for a year. Could be a disaster. At least he's a good passer.

never thought for a second we would be getting Coutinho. I mean there was no pressing need. If Iwobi was going then perhaps...

Speaking of which, would you guys be okay with 40m + Iwobi for Zaha?

I mean it depends how highly you rate either of those players but I can't honestly see Iwobi improve to a level where he is being consistent and providing us with adequate goals and assists.

We are still quite weak on the right side if i am honest. AMN isn't great there and Bellerin has not played in a year.

I didn't think there was anything in it either until the Iwobi/Nketiah links started. Now it's starting to make sense.

Luiz seems desperate to join as well, probably because he's been speaking with Coutinho. L'Equipe seem sure about this happening, Cadena Ser too. Fabrizio Romano says it's not happening. I guess we'll see who's right but I think there's a possibility that we sign him on loan.

Really strange that @BilelGhazi decided to die on that hill then. Not the kind of journalist to throw shit around.

I'm still hopeful because of that.

Need to correct myself, Upamecano's release clause was 100m € in 2018 and apparently shrinks every summer. This summer supposedly ~90m €

lol what kind of a clause is that. I suppose it's so someone sign him before he goes on a free in the end.

I think we were in for him as other people also mentioned but in the end it might be too expensive so it got dropped.

I'd love one last big surprise too but i am just happy with a Lb and a CB

That Luiz deal seems to come out of no where.

Seems like Luiz was going to be 4th choice under Lampard, and he wants to be a starter. So Lampard has said if you're not with us, bugger off.

I guess we'll just keep Tomori if we sell Luiz, but I think it's a huge mistake, Luiz is still a solid player, especially in possesion, he won't solve your issues, but he will be a decent stop-gap.

If Raul could go as low as 5 mil, we basically replace Koscielny with Luiz. Wage might be higher thought

They used to have some issue while playing together didnt they? Makes sense to sell if Lampard wants total authority

I'm not aware of any issues they had as players.

I do think Luiz probably remembers Lampard as a team mate, and perhaps he felt like he could get away with more?

I do not know the exact issues, but there seems to be something there.

Italian reports are insisting Rugani is still on, but will be close.

Sky reckon Mustafi could leave today.

I think it'll be Luiz or nobody tbh.

Sell Mustafi and Iwobi and sign Coutinho on loan or Zaha, then I'd say we're done. Still seeing some Rugani stuff but don't want.

Nketiah has joined Leeds on loan.

Still waiting for confirmation of the Luiz and Tierney signings. Announcements don't have to be made before the deadline, but it has been silent since this morning so there's some inevitable concern.

If needs be, Arsenal can ask for an extension until 19:00 so long as there's only paperwork left.

Did not expect this but the money is good and Nelson is ready for more minutes.

Sad to see an academy graduate leave, though.

I mean it's fantastic money but I don't see the point if we don't have a replacement. I guess Reiss Nelson will get his minutes but he's pretty much not someone you can rely on to change the game from the bench yet.

Way I see it, if now's not the time to give Nelson a chance, when will it ever be? We can't sit here and say the kids should get more chances, and then complain when the club makes way for them.

Yeah honestly, I like Iwobi. I thought he had a future here, as a backup winger for now and then as an attacking midfielder when Ozil and Mkhitaryan leave. However, while he has improved in the past year, he will probably never be a guy that you trust to make a big difference in important games on a consistent basis. He gives maximum effort and is trying to improve but a truly top club would sell a guy like him if an offer of 35-40m came in, and that's what we're trying to become.

Selling Iwobi and loaning Nketiah probably indicates that we're keeping Smith-Rowe now. We'd be stretching ourselves pretty thin if we let any other attackers leave at this stage.

I see ESR going on loan (possibly to Germany again) with Martinelli getting minutes instead. There's John-Jules as well, who signed a new contract likely on the promise there'll be a pathway for him to the first team (there wasn't one for Amaechi, so he left).
