Good Afternoon Ed,
Sky are reporting that 2 Premier League and 1 Bundesliga club are preparing bids for AMN. Do you know which teams are interested and what sort of fee we are holding out for by any chance?
Many thanks :)

{Ed002's Note - Brighton, Spurs, possibly West Ham. I am not aware of a German club nor the price.}

I wonder how he feels about playing for Spurs? If they are want him and we don't why not?

Thank you Ed.

I imagine pretty intrigued tbh Gunner mate. If they come calling and offer him what he doesn't get an Arsenal then why wouldn't he take it.

Then again, if he ever wants to win a trophy then he may as well forget about Spurs ;)

He will simply use slurs as a stepping stone back home after he's proved himself in thier midfield and won his way into the England squad.

Willian deal should be announced Wednesday latest just heard. Apparently a 2 year deal with an option of a third year. Prob similar to how luiz deal was where the club can extend if desired.

Talksport reported this morning that it's their understanding that the deal will be a 3 year deal with an option of a 4th year. Hopefully you're right mate!

I'm sure Kia will take up his option to extend:-)

Do you consider this to be a good deal? He is nearly 32. He is a good player but a 3 year deal is excessive.

{Ed047's Note - awful deal if it happens

Uninspiring bewildering difficult to make sense of signing but we've had plenty of warning it was coming so no huge surprise.

Ed002 are the club really prepared to pay Mesut off/ subsidise his wages do you know? Thanks as always for any insight 😊.

{Ed002's Note - Mesut Özil (AM) if a deal can be found to sell him (which will be tough) then the option is to try and negotiate a fee for him to leave - else if he stays then there will be a significant impact on transfer plans and he will leave for zip in 2021.}

I’m not sure how it’s going to work but do you think a deal could be agreed Ed for the option of negotiating for him to leave?

Also, rather than everyone continuing asking, would it be best if you maybe set a day for when you can provide us with a list of incomings? Means you won’t have to keep answering the same question mate.

{Ed002's Note - I simply do not have the time.}

Is a realistically possible to get a fee for Mesut Ed002? I'd have thought letting him leave for free with Arsenal contributing towards his wages at his next club would be the only way of resolving the situation given its Arsenal who need a solution and not Mesut who seems happy enough as things stand.

{Ed002's Note - Please see my previous reply.}

Does it really make sense to pay off Mesut? Surely it would be better to have him here at least as backup, unless the situation is unsettling the rest of the team I'd course. Do you know if that is the case Eds?

{Ed002's Note - I really don't know.}

A friend of mine who has connections close to the club has told me that, like a lot of people have mentioned, Edu and Kia thingy ma bob are the ones pushing the club towards signing Willian and Gabriel Maghaeles as well as strongly considering Coutinho. Interestingly the way Edu has pitched this to the club is that he believes that Martinelli is Aubameyang's long-term successor and that he wants to surround him with Brazilians to make him feel as settled as possible for the long term. And the board have lapped it up.

Must say I don't mind though. The club are being taken for a bit of a ride but it's not like these are bad players and I always felt nervous when we were playing Chelsea and Willian came on. He's a proper player.

09 Aug 2020 14:28:55
It's difficult to make sense of anything the club is doing right now but to plan every signing around Martinelli and making him feel comfortable for the future? How likely is that to be true?
At the moment it's difficult to dismiss anything as being beyond the relms of possibility of those running Arsenal but I think this story starts and ends in your friends imagination Anamo.

09 Aug 2020 16:04:43
Lol perhaps.
I paraphrased what he said a bit but that was the general gist of it. Build the team around martinelli, particularly with his compatriots. Basically make it feel like a home from home.

Only time will tell if your mate is right Amano mate but between now and then would you please ask him if he is interested in buying a genuine Alien space ship with only 72,000,000,000,000,000 miles on the clock in absolutely mint condition and one careful lady owner who bought the ship brand new in the 31st century :-) .

Morning Ed002.
Any chance you could clarify the current position surrounding Coutinho please? A lot of reports saying that he's visited the training ground already, agreed personal terms, some say loan and some say permanent deal including Guendouzi bla bla. Interested to hear what you know.
Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of anything changing or being agreed at present. I saw someon say last night that he had been at the training ground yesterday afternoon, but he was in Munich training yesterday. There may well be an agreement with Kia about the terms of any offer but he is still working to try and get Arsenal to buy Joelson Fernandes (who he cannot legally represent at this time). So at this time I am not aware of any change in the situation Glenn.}

No problem Ed that's great, thank you. Regardless of talent and potential the figures being touted for JF are extortionate. Unless its a very well negotiated deal at a fraction of the price then I don't even know why Arsenal are entertaining it.

{Ed002's Note - It is because Kia has the ear of Edu. Nothing else.}

I get that but if its not financially sensible then do the bosses not just say I'm sorry but it isn't happening end of story? Seems like they just bend over at do as their told atm.

{Ed002's Note - Which of the "bosses" would this be?}

08 Aug 2020 17:50:36
It's seems to me kia is the boss on new signings Glen mate so there is nothing disagree about, we get who kia brings in because that's the role the club have agreed with him carry out.
Well at least that's what I can make of things.

The chief exec and the Head of football, do they not have a say in the matter? Raul has quite an influence or transfers doesn't he? Or do transfers now start and end with Edu. If that's the case and he's got Kia dictating to him then fair enough but surely Vinai and Raul can disagree, especially if financially it doesn't make sense?

{Ed002's Note - As I have explained the structure at Arsenal is a mess.}

08 Aug 2020 18:56:50
Obviously there is a plan and a hierarchy, I'm just not sure if anyone actually understands it or how it all works :-)

Edu to Kia " are you my boss or am I your boss "
Kia to Edu " stop thinking so much, just let me do all the worrying for you "
Edu " cor thanks mate "

Where's Josh?
" Kia gave him a bottle of pop and and packet of cheese and onion and he's quite happy playing with his scalextrics on the boardroom carpet!

Reports coming out that the Auba contract renewal set to be confirmed in the coming days. Willian announcement to follow.

Never felt so lukewarm about a big signing before. Sigh.

{Ed0666's Note - it really does beggar belief to give Willian $400k a month when you could get a promising kiddie on a fraction of those wages who would probably do the same job. Eds 002’s insights into the financial running at you’re club are fascinating. That Edu seems like he’s doing an awful job. He makes Rick Parry look like Monchi.

I think this is the main reason why so many of us Arsenal fans are so sick of Kroenke. It's not the lack of spending that's the problem, we
clearly do spend (and badly) . Clubs like Liverpool have shown that if you invest well then you can compete with the best.
It's the way he operates the club, no accountability, no transparency, no soul. We have a bunch of shysters running the club who only care about their own pockets. It's the work of an asset stripper, a mafioso, someone who doesn't care about what the Arsenal has come to represent over the past 30 years and what the fans love about football. Might sound harsh but I do not recognise the club I began supporting decades ago.

{Ed0666's Note - I feel you’re pain mate. Not trying to rub salt into the wounds but at least you had a modicum of accountability and dignity when Mr Wenger was running the show from top to bottom now it seems like you have the lunatics running the asylum. I honestly think you wouldn’t be in this horror show had wenger stayed in some capacity. The way he was hounded out of you’re club still leaves a bad taste in my mouth and Im a Liverpool fan.

I have to agree - we used to be able to say we were a class act but this move feels rotten whichever way you approach it from.

It also staggers me that they couldn’t find a better spin than ‘it will free up money for transfers’. They could have simply said ‘we are re-structuring our scouting network’.

It doesn’t feel like we have the best minds from what are supposed to be commercially savvy business types as opposed to ‘football people’ in those roles. I think this is where we do miss someone like David Dein, Arsene Wenger, Tony Adams - just someone who cares about the club and how it is represented.

We have no Arsenal DNA. Bad, bad times.

While I feel sorry for the 55 people, as I understand it our staffing was somewhat bloated so maybe this is sensible. Willian may well prove to be a master stroke. Yes his salary is high but not transfer fee and you have a proven winner in the Premiership. And keeping Auba was a necessity. I am not (and have never really been) a fan of Coutinho so I hope that doesn't happen. Also in all cases I don't want your emerging young players to be kept out. But for years now we have been told we have the best group of youngsters in the land but very few pan out so trying to get the right balance is imperative. For my money, I like where we are going and I believe Arteta is the perfect manager for Arsenal.

Stats show that in less games Martinelli was far better than Willian. Not sure why we are going for him.

{Ed002's Note - Because of Kia.}

I hope kia doesn't have a load of one direction T shirts or 100s of boxes of old cycling shorts he's stuck with in his garage or our players are going to look really silly taking the field next season.

@ED0666 - Was that sarcasm with the wages? Cause Willian was at 120K at Chelsea and rumours are of him signing a 100K deal with us.
For the experience it's a fair price. Agree that we should be looking young but - We already have Pepe/ Reiss/ Martinelli/ Saka and don't want to impede their chances maybe. Willian is just an experience backup is my hunch.

If this happens- Reiss might be loaned out in Jan-Feb maybe.

{Ed0666's Note - No Kasvan I wasn’t being sarcastic I’m being deadly serious. Willian was on 120k at Chelsea but they only offered him a year or two year extension you’ve given him 3 years so works out much more in the long term. I really think it’s an absurd transfer I really do as you could have got say an experienced 26 year old on similar wages who still would be in his prime in 3 years. I think what I’m trying to say he’s not worth the outlay especially given you’re financial circumstances.

Always a shame when an Arsenal lad leaves the club, but it seems the club (maybe Arteta) are taking a 'if you aren't in, you're out' approach and if AMN doesn't suit what Mikel wants, let's get some decent money for him!

I'm pretty sure this is just a 'sod off, we need the money' situation. Why we kept Cedric instead is baffling.

Latest from Ornstein this morning:

Arsenal players are not happy with 55 staff being made redundant. They agreed 12.5% wage cut in April after receiving assurance nobody would lose jobs. Yesterday's has news left squad angry and they plan to raise it with #AFC bosses.

We`ve just won £3mill for FA CUP plus £30 Mill ( rough figures) for European Qualification. Unplanned income i`m sure most arsenal fans would prefer to be spent so there would be no redundancies. However sadly i think it`s nothing to do with money but scouting network being made redundant and lumped in with the rest. Governments do it all the time burying important news COYG Let`s hope the players do have the cajones!

We all want our players to come good on this, it would be brilliant if they take action! They certainly havd the power should they chose to use it. Whether the story is true or not it's put the ball firmly in the players court.
