From the last 10 year’s experience of Arsenal’s transfer activity, we know that this is how it works ….
Most of the stories linking us to players or claiming we are interested in a particular player are either from web sites/journalists trying to garner hits, or from agents trying to manipulate the market = lies.
Often, when we are actually interested in a player, it becomes quite obvious from an early stage = Nasri, Holding, Xhaka.
Sometimes we do a last minute deal = Park, Ozil
I believe we made an offer for La Cazette about a month ago. West Ham subsequently offered more but reportedly (that word means probably a lie), La Caz wants CL football. He’s good, he’s an alternative to Giroud, he knows where the goal is, he’s French 🙂 …. what’s not to like?
‘Reportedly’ Lyon want £40m. So if that is the case, just pay the *&^%ing money and get on with finding us a top CB to fill the vacuum in our defence please Ivan/Arsene.
Don’t tell me it’s not that easy – I know it isn’t but other clubs are securing targets, we need to pull our fingers out and do the business.
