    If Everton were to offer £30M would you take it...

    I'd find it hard to turn that down, we are talking about a right back here.

    I think at £20M you sign Max Aarons and sell both AMN and Bellerin for around £50M combined.

    Bellerin and AMN sold in one window? This ain’t FM, it’s never happening.

    If we sell AMN then we have Bellerin and Cedric that just signed a 4 year deal, why would we go for Max Aarons?

    Another reason why AMN shouldn’t be sold.

    Long term i think AMN is a fantastic squad option but he isnt a player who wins you the premier league.

    If Auba is signing on a 3 year deal you ideally want to create a team in that time that challenges for/wins the title.

    You are right this isnt FM. I think one of Bellerin or AMN goes this summer and like you say we will use Bellerin and Cedric going into next season. But long term Bellerin isnt good enough either.

    Hope this isn't true, but equally saying he's for sale for £30m+ isn't as shocking and revelatory as it sounds. I mean, even if he wasn't on the block, it would be hard to turn down £30m for him in this climate. But different people are briefing about different players being up for sale. I think what we can deduce from this is the usual suspects are deffo up fro sale, and most of the rest they'll consider offers for, because there are only 6 or 7 of the current squad who are categorically not for sale without a massive over pay. Which given our worst league finish in quarter of a century is probably justified.

    I still don't like this, but I've been a big fan of AMN since he was 15.

    I don't know, but if it's true I don't like it.

    Think we're underestimating AMN here, the guy just shut out Sterling and Man City out of position at LB. He also offers something our other CM currently dont which is energy and athleticism whcih I s=why Atrteta started him in the cup final.

    Get what you mean about he isnt going to win you the league but is exactly the type of versatile player you need in your squad to win PL e.g. Milner, Gareth Barry, etc play & cover a few positions when there's an injury.

    I am sorry to be mean. This is the worst post I have ever seen.

    Thing is, does he accept that he's a Milner type of player or does he feel like he's a star and he should be starting.

    What I don't like is they really want to sell him to get some money and keep the worst player Bellerin. Or is this some kind of move to make Cedric play?

    At this point a see AMN ahead of Bellerin and Cedric

    If a big bid comes in for AMN I get it, but if you sell AMN against Arteta's wishes you are just asking for trouble.

    Arteta has already won a trophy here, the fans like him and his reputation will continue to grow, if they're going to sell players he wants to keep from right under his nose this wont end well and he will eventually get fed up and leave, bit worrying for this type of thing to be happening so early in his reign.

    You might see that, but who played RB in the cup final?

    People talk like £30m isn't a ****ing pittance in modern day football FFS.

    Keeping Bellerin and selling AMN - who I feel is one of the most improved players - would be a very Arsenal thing to do.

    Not sure why he’d want to move.

    Arteta clearly loves him and if we wants to play CM he should just hire Kia as his agent. Sorted.

    Just sell Cedric for half his value for a quick sale instead. About 500k should do it.

    I like Ainsley Maitland-Niles a lot and think he has the skill set to be a valuable 12th man to a squad challenging for top honours or even a first-choice right-back.

    What I think is also the case is that the club has set a price for all its players and if that price is reached, they will sell. There are very few untouchables in our squad and notwithstanding my earlier praise, I can understand why £30m+ in this climate would be appealing. I hope we do not sell but if we do sell for such a fee, it would be good business.
