2017-2018 Summer Transfer Window

Posted by Ix Techau about 2 years ago · 461 replies

Squad rules terminology refresher:

  • We can register up to 25 players who are over 21
  • We can register a maximum of 17 non-homegrown players
  • Homegrown player means 36 months spent in England before end of season in which they turn 21
  • U21 player means any player born on or after January 1st 1996
  • U21 players don't have to be registered in order to play, which means we can have as many as we want

Confirmed transfers in/out:

  • Lacazette has signed for a club record £46m initial fee
  • Sanogo left on a free transfer on June 30th
  • Kolasinac joined on a free transfer on July 1st
  • Ospina has asked to be put on the transfer list
  • Lucas Perez has asked to be put on the transfer list
  • Wojciech Szczesny has joined Juventus for £10m

Likely transfers in/out:

  • Debuchy leaving has been on the cards for some time
  • Jenkinson could go on another season-long loan or permanent move
  • Unless said in jest, Wenger did say he wants to bid on Mahrez

Reading some of the suggestions that were posted here... Looks like Arsenalreport has finally gone full retard. Bring back Cesc? Young players will look up to him? To who? The cunt who stabbed us in the back? Cretins.

Arsenal given major hope of £45m Thomas Lemar transfer as Monaco consider late saleArsenal’s move for Thomas Lemar could be back on with Monaco reportedly open to letting the winger leave the club, according to reports in France.

Do people really think we can get Lemar for 45m, when Dembele went for 135m? Number seems low.

Mustafi, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Gibbs, Lucas all set to leave. We might actually end up with a net profit come the end of the summer.

Would you all be happy with:

Cech; Koscielny, van Dijk, Monreal; Bellerin - Xhaka - Ramsey - Kolasinac; Özil, Lacazette, Alexis.

Seems decent, only concern is back-up at RWB and still not convinced on Rambo's defensive contribution

Keep Mustafi and Ox since I doubt we can get van dijk. Try to sell Debuchy and maybe even Walcott/welbeck, and bring in another strong cb and/or attacking winger for the future, and thats a successful transfer window. Granted, that's a lot for 6 days, but here's hoping.

Selling Mustafi is suicidal, given the defensive players we have.. And I highly doubt Arsene will make any more additions, unless some panic buys if any first team players like Alexis or Ox leave...

Mustafi leaving makes no sense

It does. When his impotence let Monreal leads the back line, and this overpaid way too expensive CB is more chaotic than Xhaka, yeah it does. Even Holding was better in that position.

Today's result has finally put arsenal I to full on panic buy mode. Wenger can buy some more overpaid losers who will end up unsaleable burdens in a few short months! Fantastic!

Just sell the under-performers (and those who doesn't want to commit) and bring in Draxler, Van Dijk and JM Seri to boost the already way down morale and hope for something this season...

I wish Arsene for once to just clean the house. Even if the players are talented if they don't care/play for the team just clean them, this includes Ozil and Alexis.

MAN CITY TO MAKE LAST-DITCH ALEXIS BID AS ARSENAL PREPARE FOR PLAYER EXODUS

The Gunners have remained adamant all summer that they will not sell the Chile international but City are set to test the water late in the day.

Should he leave north London, Alexis is likely to be one of many departures from Arsenal before the end of the transfer window.

Shkodran Mustafi's representatives are in Italy as talks over a season-long loan move to Inter have reached an advanced stage while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is keen to complete a move to Chelsea. A fee in the region of £35 million, however, is likely to be agreed by Thursday's 23:00 BST deadline.

Lucas Perez’s wish to return to former club Deportivo La Coruna, meanwhile, could be fulfilled this week and the £17.5m signing will depart north London just a year after arriving from Spain.

Also Debuchy, Chambers and Gibbs are made available for transfer by the club.

No
Uh, "no"...

ARSENAL WANT STERLING SWAP AS MAN CITY CLOSE IN ON ALEXIS

Manchester City and Arsenal have finally opened negotiations over a deal for Alexis Sanchez.

Alexis remains determined to join City and the Gunners are now receptive to the idea of selling the Chilean, having previously refused to entertain any offers throughout the summer.

Raheem Sterling is one of several options that has been mooted during negotations between the two clubs in the past 48 hours, though Goal understands it is the Gunners who have pushed for his inclusion.

Sources have told Goal that Fabian Delph has also been proposed by City as the Premier League rivals aim to thrash out a mutually benefical agreement before the transfer window shuts on Thursday.

There have also been reports elsewhere in the media that the Gunners have floated the idea of including Sergio Aguero in the deal, though sources close to the player insist the Argentine has no desire to make the move.

WEST BROM BACK IN FOR GIBBS

West Brom are looking to beat Watford to the signing of Arsenal defender Kieran Gibbs, according to the Mirror .

The Baggies had previously been interested in the left-back, and Gibbs remains on their radar following Watford's £7m bid. Gibbs has yet to play for Arsene Wenger's side this season, with Sead Kolasinac moving ahead of him in the pecking order.

Sanchez for sterling is not an even swap whatsoever. Apparently we were even willing to offer Sanchez and money, which is even crazier. Sanchez for aguero is much more even.
