    Or just keep what we have and buy like two really good midfielders. Laca could probably still do a decent enough impression of the Benzema role in the system you mention.

    You'd probably only sell Laca if you got a really good offer you could use to reinvest, and if you could get another striker cheaply - Jovic on loan for example. Otherwise you're just selling Laca to fund a new striker and you've got nothing to improve the midfield with.

    Laca needs to go. Not good enough.

    Sell Laca - funds a striker
    Elneny, sokratis and our transfer kitty of 35 million funds Partey.

    Guendouzi funds a CB.

    Probably around 20 million left to buy an unknown midfielder I'd say.

    Ending up with the far superior player isn't a bad thing.

    If we could do all that it'd be great, I worry our business will have to be a bit more constrained though. And I think if you're limited to what you can do in one summer you're better off just focusing on the midfield. With a properly good midfield I think you effect the biggest change.

    I don't actually know how to get that midfield perfect though. I keep thinking we need to find the next KDB, Modric, Cesc, Bruno Fernandes type, the guy who makes everything tick, a real midfield baller, and there are candidates out there but none that smack you right in the face as being obvious. I guess Grealish is the most obvious one, but is he on the level of those mentioned above?

    And then we're linked to Partey and it's like, well ok if he comes i'll get on board cos he's a good player and he'd improve the team, but when I watch Arsenal I don't think the team needs a player like Partey, I think they need a creator.

    Am I the only one here who projects Saka as a LW going forward? Everyone seems to either want a new LW or continue to play Auba there. I think Saka can play LCM but I'm not sure if we want to make that his primary position.

    I don't think we know yet what will prove to be Saka's best position. Watching him you'd say wing but he's so good dribbling from deep that that wider central midfield position might be the one. Such a talent.
    Arteta has never played Auba through the middle so as long as he's here under Mikel he'll play LW I think.

    Good player...but would prefer to focus on our centre midfield, this will probably cost way too much for us.

    Word. Willian on a free is a much better deal than wasting a load of money on this chump. He’s a lot better in every aspect of the game.

    I will never understand how the tables have turned, seems every other club has the drop on us when it comes to signing top tier talents from France, also it seems whenever we are interested we get overpriced compared to other clubs, for instance Newcastle paid 16 mil for him, we probably would have paid double that.

    Huh...explain. Why don’t you rate this guy?

    Willian is a decent player but he’s like 32 ffs and apparently he wants like 250k a week.

    ASM is a powerful dribbler and can hold his own physically. But, without checking, I think he's scored less than five goals this season and not that many assists. I havent seen him pass but he does well to latch on to them. I just feel we might as well stick with Nketiah and get either a creative midfielder or another more rounded forward. I think we're okay on the wings.

    32 year old Willian over a 22 year old Saint-Maximin who is beginning to show real promise. Only at A-M.

    Silly rumour. ASM is an exciting player, but don't see output with him. Newcastle don't need to sell and we don't need a young winger.

    ASM has a higher ceiling imho.

    Disagree. Willian was incredible at Shaktar.

    So were Mkhitaryan and Bernard. They had better stats in fact.

    Not sure talking about stats help Maximin's case tbh. Though I obviously only watched Willian in the CL, so unaware what his stats were like altogether.

    In all seriousness, with Newcastle about to be awash in oil money, why would they entertain selling their most dangerous player? Surely it will take a few windows to create a credible project that actual top names want to join as it did with City. It doesn't make logical sense for them to want to sell him. They'd more likely be looking at adding players on his wavelength. If they follow the early City model of throwing crazy fees and wages at big name but not really big impact players I could see them going after someone like Coutinho to play off ASM.
