Depending on who those new signings end up being that's a pretty average look team so far
He's already 29 and doesn't offer enough for end product. Let him go to Atletico, get the money while you can and get someone younger.If we get Partey over the line, we'd need a new starting CB (Upamecano is the most obvious but might cost too much) and a creative midfielder: linked with Szoboszlai from Salzburg.
Partey + Szoboszlai = 70/80M so not sure how much would be left and if that'd be enough to get a good CB. We don't really have somebody we're willing to let go that would fetch us good funds. As bad as Lacazette is at the moment, selling him and having only Auba+Nketiah/Martinelli is very risky.
My point was if he was sold, it would be to have the money to fix our terrible defence. There will be a decision to be made between those 2 problems to fix. If only we had a billionaire owner...He's already 29 and doesn't offer enough for end product. Let him go to Atletico, get the money while you can and get someone younger.
We sold Lukaku, didn't buy replacement but have faith in youth & signed a centre back. May be that's what you should be doing on Laca.My point was if he was sold, it would be to have the money to fix our terrible defence.

It's Stan Kroenke. My first guess is he's doing this to benefit him, not Arsenal.
Could be good news, could be bad news. Nobody know their true intent at the moment. A few scenarios are explained in the tweet thread.
This could be a massive help to the club and Arteta, (it immediately free up 30/35M that could be used for transfers or clean up the tab at various levels) especially with this year's losses or that could just be the start of a new scheme to get a new loan against the club value and make Arsenal earn them more money in the long run.
I'm not sure we'll be able to know which it is since KSE made everything private and no longer have to publish annual accounts.
In my opinion, they must commit to a rebuild by selling Aubameyang, as keeping him will only lead to another Özil situation and people will just say that the same thing has happened again.Arsenal need to get rid of Ozil for a start, keeping Aubemeyang, getting a CB in and getting a creative player will make them a much better team.
They are perhaps the furthest they have ever been from major trophies.
That was all Wenger. Poor poor decision by him.Arsenal can sign whoever they want, the culture at the club is pure cancer.
They've made horrible decisions, giving Ozil a 350k contract, not selling Sanchez when given an offer of 50 MP and then having to settle to trade him for a inferior player, and also treat their players like crap. They leaked out Ozil's name during COVID for rejecting the lower salary, and then freezing him out afterwards, abuse their players (Xhaka).
There is a lot of change that needs to occur from top to bottom. Fans need to get a reality check and stop abusing their players non-stop.
I can't imagine why any player would want to sign for them unless they are getting offered much more than any other club.
Yea but the board should've been assertive and rejected that. You need a strong board, imagine if we followed Jose and went by his demands. Sell Martial, sign Perisic, William and Alderweireld.That was all Wenger. Poor poor decision by him.
Agree with this. Aubamayeng isn't showing the motivation to be there and him staying would be about money more than ambition to do well, similar to Ozil and Sanchez back in 2018. Arsenal need to sell him while he has value and rebuild, going by younger players might be the best option.In my opinion, they must commit to a rebuild by selling Aubameyang, as keeping him will only lead to another Özil situation and people will just say that the same thing has happened again.
Wow, what a sad stat.
