    Now he would be perfect for us. LCB to add to Bailly.

    If DDG does go, Oblak would be a good replacement for us .

    Would rather go for Butland. Home grown, physically suited to the league and an excellent keeper. Oblak will not cost much less than Dave will be sold for and whilst a very good shot stopper, I’d wager he’d struggle with set pieces here.

    Shorter and not as good though. I don’t see the point of paying top top money for a player when we could get a home grown cheaper alternative. Butland is ready to step up to a top team now and knows the league.

    Hello, Vidic 2.0!

    Reminds me of Vidic but he mainly plays DM more than CB? He has a great pass and shot on him though lol.

    bloody hell wins allot of the ball from near the midfield for a CB and drives it far enough to take a shot. He's not scared this lad is he?

    Skriniar or Umtiti, either would suit me fine. Sell Rojo or Smalling.

    Not a weekly Inter watcher, but he seems to be the perfect modern CB. Good and calm on the ball, decent pace and strength , good technical abilities for a CB, good shot and also good headers. I dont know if that is his normal form or just a great season, but for a 22 year old CB coming from Sampdoria, he looks like a seriously talented CB. I do think he gets a bit overhyped due to his current output.

    Not often that there is a CB to watch not only based off of their tackling or distribution but for their attacking and long distances shots. Madness!

    He never was viewed as Vidic type, not sure where that comes from. He had really first season in City, after that things went tits up. Looked so calm under pressure, never panicked, always found a pass, was such a young age back then.

    Not sure what happened to him but Varane and him were really rated as young CBs.

    Why would he struggle with set pieces?

    When was the last time a keeper from Spain settled quickly into the EPL? Even the very best of them struggled for a long time with the physical side of the game. Plus he's smaller than Dave and from what I've seen isn't great at commanding his area.

    Courtois did well didnt he? Who was the last top keeper to come from La Liga to the PL before DDG? Reina?

    Yeah theres not enough of a sample for you to make that claim about La Liga keepers.

    Doesn't really need a sample, the game in Spain is very different, physically dominating keepers will adapt better to the Premier League, over keepers who are around 6ft and not used to lenience of the refs. Dave, Valdes & Bravo all had or even still have issues.
    As I said 'if' Dave goes I'd rather not downgrade and pay almost the money we get for Dave to replace him.

    100M on a Goalkeeper?

    :lol:

    They would have to bound and gag Wenger in a locked room for this transfer to happen, at that price (release clause). At best I can see us offering Atletico players plus cash but in no way is Arsenal spending that much on a keeper. Not with all the work that needs to be done elsewhere, DM, CBs and FBs.

    If we do want a keeper, and we should, then I can see Wenger going for Butland (English premium notwithstanding) or Timo Horn

    Mata is probably in the out-tray regardless of new contract offer.

    Bayern don't need to sell though and I'm sure they've him on a contract that takes him into his 30s.

    If I was Bayern I'd say feck you and make him honour his contract.
