    Any reports in France suggested the only other bid for him was from Atletico, and Fabinho said there were two clubs seriously interested in him.

    Sky are regularly either late to report anything or unreliable. People tend to believe what they're saying only when it's being reported elsewhere or if it suggests another club doing poor business (I doubt Arsenal fans would be dismissive of Sky reporting on Sanchez wages, for example).

    It's an easy story to write anyway, either Arsenal say they were close to signing another player or they weren't interested in a player they probably could afford and need. Some of their pundits will probably mention the latter but they wouldn't get noteworthy headlines out of that when everyone knows it.

    You could form a pretty decent team of players whom Arsenal nearly signed so I'm not surprised if Sky's report is accurate.

    Meh, anyway Lichsteiner is quite a good move for me, watched him again yesterday vs Spain and he was a very good outlet. Could teach Bellerin a couple things.

    Signing Fellaini would be even more banter era than Wenger.

    Really want us to sign Pavard, think he'll be top top class.

    Pavard and Soyuncu would be the 2 CB's I'd want in next along with Sokratis then we need a CDM desperately

    We won't sign 3, 2 at a push. I'd much rather pavard over soyuncu.

    Yh we do.

    We've also signed adli from psg.

    Meant to be there best young talent and they're very upset he's gone so interested to see how he does.

    We are lacking in the talented youth pool currently tbh compared to some other prem top teams so glad we got him.

    Bellerin, holding, chambers, iwobi are our main young first dealers.

    AMN, Nelson, Adli, Nketiah, mavrapanos are our main proper young talents.

    Can't emphasise how good Torreira is.

    He is the best young defensive midfielder in the world for me, and we've got him for a bargain.

    He is the perfect fit for our side, like Coquelin but with much more potential and much better on the ball.

    Our team is looking like potentially:
    Leno
    Bellerin - Sokratis - Soyuncu - Monreal
    Ramsey - Torreira - Xhaka
    Ozil - Aubamayang - Mkhitaryan

    Cech
    Lichsteiner - Holding - Koscielny - Kolasinic
    Maitland-Niles - Elneny - Wilshere
    Martins - Lacazette - Welbeck

    Martinez
    Mavrapanos
    Iwobi
    Nelson
    Nketiah

    In:

    Leno - £25m
    Sokratis - £15m
    Soyuncu - £25m (I'd much rather Pavard who can be world class but will cost £40m probably)
    Torreira - £25m
    Lichsteiner - FREE
    Martins - FREE

    Total: £90m

    Out:

    Ospina - £7.5m
    Chambers - £15m
    Mustafi - £20m
    Cazorla - FREE
    Campbell - £7.5m (if he has a decent WC)
    Perez - £10m

    Total: £60m

    Total spend of £30m, which ties in with this, so called, £50m budget (I think that's a load of rubbish anyway).

    I'm not entirely convinced by both Leno or Soyuncu, but those two are the ones that we've been linked most with anyway, but that will be a bit upgrade in the squad, with a bunch of both young and experienced players. It's a quality attack, well balanced midfield, and a decent defence.

    Rather have Ozil on the bench than on the wing, especially if we do get Martins
