Hi Ed,

Koopmeiners is the latest name being linked with us. Any truth to this?

Thanks,

Arsenalex

{Ed002's Note - He is being considered by numerous sides including Arsenal but there are ongoing discussions with two other sides. Certainly a possibility.}


1.) 15 Jul 2021 23:40:19
Thanks Ed.


2.) 16 Jul 2021 09:47:34
Is he any good Edoo2?

{Ed002's Note - Koopmeiners is very well liked by clubs.}


3.) 16 Jul 2021 10:17:07
Thanks mate.


4.) 16 Jul 2021 11:23:00
Ed has arsenals interest in Bissouma ended? Also do you see him leaving Brighton this summer given they have his replacement already.

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed.}


5.) 16 Jul 2021 15:59:00
I keep thinking about Ed's comments that he would be an improvement over Xhaka, and that from what I've seen, he is a great player. I wonder though if the ACN is a deterrent, particularly as we also have Partey and Elneny - tough to lose three midfielders for a month.

Hi Ed,

Hope you had a good Easter weekend. Is there any interest in PEA, and any interest in moving him on?

Thanks,

Arsenalex

{Ed002's Note - I had a good weekend thanks Alex but obviously I don't recognise Easter. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyangadingdong (S/LW) Arsenal were kind enough to give Aubameyangadingdong a nice new contract 6 months ago - it is unclear why, but coming up to 32 it would not have given a boost to or protected his value meaning that which he sucks £350k a week out of the club the future is pretty bleak unless he wants to move to China or to Turkey. Dropping wages and seeing his time out in the graveyard of elderly strikers at Inter Milan or perhaps Manchester United might be an option but there is no obvious interest.}

Thanks Ed.

Hi Ed,

When Bellerin goes, do we have a replacement lined up?

Thanks,

Arsenalex

{Ed002's Note - No, not lined up.}


1.) 26 Feb 2021 21:41:13
Thanks Ed. Can you speak to targets?

{Ed002's Note - Typically there will not be targets for players who may just leave. The likes of Aarons who is a true target for others may be of interest.}


2.) 28 Feb 2021 22:45:16
ED, early days but arsenal need to sign Martin Odegaard right? Are arsenal interested making the deal permanent. I suppose the better question is, would real and he be interested in making the deal permanent? I’ve read he’s really happy at the club.

{Ed002's Note - There is no option and Real Madrid will be looking to save some money and likely hold on to him next season whilst others are sold.}


3.) 28 Feb 2021 23:16:40
Ed, would you have a rough figure of how much odegaard would likely cost at the end of the season should he become available? I’m struggling to think what the figure might be, I reckon between 30-40 mill.

{Ed002's Note - I can only guess because there is no plan to sell right now - and that would be perhaps £35M.}


4.) 01 Mar 2021 00:20:06
Really appreciate the response Ed!


 

 

18 Feb 2021 14:02:22
HI Ed,

Know how you had to speculate, but was curious if there is a likelihood that Odegaard's deal is made permanent? Mikel seems smitten.

Arsenalex

{Ed002's Note - Martin Odegaard (RW/AM) Arsenal beat Real Sociedad to a loan in January but have no option to buy. Real Madrid are happy to including him on a lengthy list of players that they are open to selling or including in exchanges - and that may suit Seville who have a player that Real Madrid are showing an interest in. Ideally Real Madrid would like an auction for him but will seek €40M for a cash sale.}


1.) 18 Feb 2021 20:06:52
Thanks Ed.

Hi Ed,

I know you have provided a list of departures, and it includes Lacazette. Curious if you can elaborate on what'S happening at centre forward. Are we still in for Odsonne Edouard? YOu have said (lamentably) that Donyell Malen wouldn't happen.

Can you please provide a bit of insight?

Arsenalex

{Ed002's Note - Yes, interest remains in OE.}


1.) 08 Feb 2021 05:15:02
Thanks Ed.


2.) 08 Feb 2021 09:44:02
When would a move for the Celtic forward likely to happen ed of you know.

{Ed002's Note - I cannot sensibly answer questions about timescales. And remember there will be interest from elsewhere.}


3.) 08 Feb 2021 12:34:24
Thanks ed,

Hi Ed,

Is there a world where we keep Nketiah and Lacazette goes? Would Eddie resign if he saw a path for more playing time, or has he definitely decided to leave?

Thanks,

Arsenalex

{Ed002's Note - Perhaps but both are for sale at the moment.}


1.) 29 Jul 2021 21:42:54
Offer Bellerin and Laca to Inter in a deal for Martinez.

One can only dream!


2.) 30 Jul 2021 13:20:26
Thanks Ed.


 

 

07 Jul 2021 17:43:25
Hi Ed,

You have said that we would sell Lacazette if the right offer comes in. Nketiah is on the table, given his unwillingness to resign. It seems that we might wind up short on attacking options.

Curious if we will look to replace these players, if only one would be allowed to leave or if we're satisfied with PEA, Martinelli and Balogun.

Thanks.

Arsenalex

{Ed002's Note - If players leave they will be replaced.}

Question for you lot:

Johnstone or Ramsdale?

Arsenalex

1.) 07 Jul 2021 18:22:25
Neither Alex mate. Thought we had 2 good keepers coming thru.


2.) 07 Jul 2021 19:38:16
Johnstone. we need home grown, no point wasting a foreign space on a league cup player.

The two Bill won't be good enough if Leno gets injured.


 

 

02 Jul 2021 06:40:44
Hi Ed, two questions:

Fabrizio Romano said Willian was gone for sure this summer. Is that move still happening?

And Ben White. what are we doing? Are we going through with it? City? Everton?

Thanks!

Arsenalex

{Ed002's Note - Why not ask Fabrizio Romano and not me.}


1.) 02 Jul 2021 10:43:36
😂 savage.


2.) 02 Jul 2021 14:27:48
Ed002 having a strop again 😂😂.


3.) 02 Jul 2021 17:10:39
I see Fabrizio respond to questions about comments that Ed002 has made all the time, so i don't see why Ed won't answer this :D:D.


 

 

21 Jun 2021 16:20:05
I thought we needed cover at LB and maybe a new RB. Yet for all our links, we don't seem to be moving for one. Unless Maddison is to cover at LB in event of injury.

And I don't think we'll sign Maddison.

Arsenalex

{Ed014's Note - don’t mind if we don’t to be honest, he was getting dropped by Leicester for not doing enough. He likes to fall over then take the resulting free kick.

Need much better.


1.) 21 Jun 2021 17:35:19
Unbelievably overrated he is! I don’t see the hype people talk about whatsoever. He thinks he’s far better than what he is, confidence is one thing but he seems pretty arrogant to me but has nothing to back it up.
Not what we need at our club, we need fighters, runners and leaders not footballers who are more concerned about there hair or camera image.

No thank you :)


2.) 21 Jun 2021 18:52:31
But surely, we agree we need cover for Tierney (unless Soares can fill that)


3.) 21 Jun 2021 19:51:11
100% Alex. I honestly think Bertrand (Southampton) would be a great shout, think he’s on a free transfer too, would be ideal backup for KT.

I think the ACN is the big factor. Partey, Elneny and Bissouma would have been to big a chunk of our midfield to lose. Apparently Borussia Monchegemansomething want 30M euros for Zakaria, so that's a no-brainer.

NO matter if he stays or goes, we're progressing. Signing some good young players, getting commitment from our core, I'm pleased. And if Xhaka stays and plays like he did for the Swiss, amen.

I think he's a good player, promising and talented. I'm not sure that he is a game changer or a difference maker.

Going forward, those are the players I want, and we shouldn't be spending 50M on a someone who can't single-handedly change the course of the game.

Fun post, of the names listed, I think the following will go:

Bellerin (15m)
Kolasinac (3m)
Mavropanos (7m)
Xhaka (15m)
Torreira (released)
Guendouzi (13m)
Maitland Niles (15m)
Willian (Free)

So that's about 70M.
