2017-2018 Winter Transfer Window

Posted by THE POLICE almost 3 years ago · 68 replies

One of the most important Winter transfer window for Arsenal considering there are lots of news going around in terms of exit, rather than any new arrival during this January (which is the usual media stories).

Its a major talking point since the key players like Sanchez, Ozil, Giroud, Wilshere, Walcott etc. are hyped to leave the club in January, if the right offer comes. And ofcourse, we have been linked to sign every other players available in the transfer market, as ever.

WinterTransfers

On Exits:
Arsenal launched a last attempt to make Ozil to stay at the club, however Sanchez's saga is still continuing as his contract expires in 6 months time and he's free to talk to any clubs to sign with during next summer. Ozil is wanted by ManUtd and Barcelona, whereas ManCity could attempt again for Sanchez as PSG is also looming around.

Giroud has scored some important goals this season, albeit coming off from bench on most occasions, he is looking to move either permanent or on a loan deal in order to keep his place for France at the World cup next summer. With Marseille and Everton are looking to sign him, its highly likely that he could leave this January unless Wenger persuade him to stay.

Similarly Wilshere also kept out of starting lineup, except Europa games, and looking for regular starts in order to play for England at World cup. He will be out of contract next summer and West Ham and Real Betis are interested in his signing during this January.

Another player rumored to leave if right offer comes is Walcott, as his role is limited with the new formation of 3-4-2-1 and only limited to cup games appearance. Both Everton and West Ham are looking for a first team striker, an offer of £25m might tempt Arsenal to part with the longest serving player.

On arrivals:
It will be most likely a regular quiet winter transfer window for Arsenal, unless we lose some players. There are lots of names floating around that we sign them during this January, like Lemar, Fekir, Goretzka, Turan, Nzonzi, Richarlison etc. and its unlikely that we get them now, but might be possible during next summer window.

It's official. We have Mkhitaryan. Let's hope we sign Aubameyang and we have signed a former duo.

Also, let's see who got the best deal: Arsenal or Man United on the Sanchez-Mkhitaryan deal.

Auba will not be a Wenger signing though, with his on field tantrums with Dortmund now.. so looking forward how well he fits into our team...

at the press conference on topic on the money league and us finishing fifth in terms of revenue - but spending less in terms of recruitment than everyone in top 10…

AW : Yes of course, but you have not to forget that we have as well financial restrictions form the banks because we have built the stadium. it is important, we have to respect the financial plan.

What are those restrictions that he's talking about???

That should be question for Gazidis, no?

Forbes on 2016:

The net profit through the Emirate years has helped to partially pay down the direct stadium debt. The gross debt peaked at over $530M in 2008 and is now down to $303M. A significant reduction but a long way still to go until the stadium is debt free.

We never splashed money even before moving Emirates, always making shrewd moves in the transfer market.. so this is normal way of Arsenal's business (as long as Wenger holds the control of transfers)...

But this scenario might change now, as the club has made some changes in the backroom staffs to take control of different aspects (from the hands of Wenger) and to cope up with the crazy transfer business in England...

Giroud has given different option to our attacking play and scored some important goals, so losing him will be difficult.. But for his own goodness, he has to leave for regular game time...

Instead we can sell Welbeck, who's not more than a lost talent...

Lamp post gone, auba in?! Am I dreaming.

They need to go all in to win Europa and have as good a summer window as this January has been. I'm finally feeling something about this team again.

Now we need another good transfer window in summer, with a strong defender and a class holding midfielder to focus... maybe another cleanup action by selling the remaining flops...

So this season we have improved our direct rivals for Top 4 by selling our own players to them...

With ManCity being runaway PL winners this season, Ox to Liverpool... Alexis to ManUtd... Giroud to Chelsea...
