Hi Eds, Firstly just wanted to say thank you for all your info this window, its been great and is highly appreciated.
Just wanted to ask in regards to Aoura most likely leaving Lyon this summer and being offered to numerous clubs including Arsenal. With the past interest in the player, is it something the club is looking to do still if they can move players on or has that ship sailed with Granit Xhaka now staying at the club? Appreciate any insight or knowledge that you can provide. thank you.

{Ed002's Note - Houssem Aouar (CM) Lyon were frustrated by Arsenal not taking a realistic approach to trying to complete the transfer of the player last summer and with PSG for failing to make a suitable offer. Having lost out on their primary CM choice there remains a chance PSG could look to him again - although I doubt he is at the top of their list any more. With the impact of the broadcasting losses, clubs in France are facing a difficult time and Lyon have reduced their €60M asking price this summer to ensure a sale. Juventus interest has drifted as they have a preferred target in mind after failed offers including Federico Bernardeschi and Mattia De Sciglio, who Lyon are keen on but they want to separate the deals. But I would not exclude Juventus from making an offer. Lyon are willing to offer the player on a loan with an obligation to buy deal and that might attract Arsenal and Liverpool. There has been concern about his recent form and this was reflected by Real Madrid showing no interest when approached by his agent. Manchester United would need to move on Pogba or van der Beek if looking toward him whilst they also have an eye on Saul, although he now looks to be heading elsewhere. Barcelona were also approached but they will not be in a position to do anything unless Frenkie de Jong is tempted away from the club as they have other priorities in the final days - I doubt they will look again. Fabio Paratici has taken his interest from Juventus to Spurs but after discussions they have stepped away. Manchester City, Liverpool, Bayern Munich and others have sent scouts to watch him over the past couple of seasons but none have declared an interest or looked to make an offer for Aouar. Arsenal will be told a take it or leave it price that is perhaps not as good a deal as others are being offered and will be expected to pay it - a third party will be used by Arsenal in any direct discussions. Atletico Madrid may offer an option depending on departures. Being available on loan will perhaps accelerate his exit.

Arsenal also still have a major issue selling players and unless they can sell in January or guarantee sales before the end of June are aware of a looming FFP issue.}

Thanks heaps Ed, hopefully we can get shift the necessary players needed in the next few days. We definitely
haven’t made it easy on ourselves, as it will be a shame if we weren’t able to get a deal done.

26 Aug 2021 08:51:04
Do we think tripper will come to arsenal of
We can get a deal done.

{Ed002's Note - Kieran Trippier (RB) May be interested in a return to a England but being cover may make him think twice. Asking price is very high at €40M but Manchester United and Arsenal are open to a move if the price can bbe reduced. Everton interest went with CA.}

Would love Trippier, i'm not sure the club is a big enough draw for him without Champions League mind. RB is a massive problem right now for me. Chambers is nowhere near good enough, so hopefully someone comes in. Aarons maybe?

26 Aug 2021 10:50:11
Surley he would be bought as our number 1 RB as opposed to cover?

26 Aug 2021 17:15:07
Question for you Ed regarding this, you may have no idea but what is the relationship like between arsenal and a. Madrid now. After the whole partey incident last summer I remember you said they wasn't too happy with how we acted.

{Ed002's Note - There won't be a good relationship right now.}

26 Aug 2021 18:42:49
Who would he be covering?

26 Aug 2021 20:22:10
Didn't think so. Appreciate the reply Ed.

26 Aug 2021 21:20:33
Thanks for ir the reply Ed.

Hi ed,

perhaps a big ask here and expecting you to say you may not know the answer to most of them, but do you reckon the following players will be sold by the end of the window:



{Ed002's Note - I have given you a list of players the club are willing to sell. All of these players are on that list and there is interest in all of them.}

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Aug 2021 02:14:47
Looks like Edu could be on his way out of the club and Overmaars could replace him at last.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2021 05:12:09
Completely fabricated story from the gutter press I reckon, but it wouldn't be terrible. Edu has done fairly well this window with building a young core but the Willian deal and our inability to sell players for a reasonable sum hangs over the place like a bad smell.

24 Aug 2021 21:40:46
Hello ed02. is Arsenal looking to add a right back this season? Any transfer updates?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, they remain keen on a RB.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2021 01:23:31
Hi edd do you think we will sign any more players we need to because we look awful.

{Ed002's Note - It is possible but there is a huge effort being made to sell players right now.}

Agree1 Disagree0

We're struggling to even get loans with obligations by the looks of it. 10m offered for Nketiah as well is a joke. As much as we need to sell, clubs need to meet our valuations 👍🏻.

25 Aug 2021 15:45:04
In this climate, almost everyone's expectations need to adjust. Valuations of 12-18 months ago mean nothing now.

{Ed014's Note - are you trying to tell me the hideously over rated Grealish was worth more than £100 million 12 to 18 months ago?

25 Aug 2021 18:40:53
No, certainly not, Manchester City operates in a market unafflicted in the same way as everyone else. You might add Chelsea to that. When Barcelona and Real Madrid cannot buy at the prices asked and we cannot even get rid of Bellrin on loan something has most definitely changed.

22 Aug 2021 13:56:45
Have we given up on Bissouma? He dominated the midfield yesterday .

{Ed002's Note - I would not expect a move to Arsenal for Bissouma.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2021 14:37:25
Any ideas why no one has gone in for him yet Ed. Thought he'd be snapped up early.

{Ed002's Note - He is not available and would be too expensive for most clubs if he were.}

22 Aug 2021 16:38:12
A pity though.

22 Aug 2021 16:25:28
Thanks Ed. I'm guessing the medias quote of being available for 30m is way off.

{Ed002's Note - So it would seem.}

22 Aug 2021 10:23:53
Ed any truth in the Asensio rumours, is Arsenal interested?

{Ed002's Note - Marco Asensio (RW/LW) Goals have dried up and his representative is working with a third-party agent to find a club willing to pay something like €40M for the player. The third party has said that the player ideally wants a club in the Champions League but the discussions he has had have been with Leicester City and Leeds so far and admits knocking on the door of other PL clubs including Arsenal. Real Madrid may be open to using him in a part exchange deal of some type.}
