    The following players are going to have full pre-seasons:

    Gibbs, Gabriel, Monreal, Cazorla, Coquelin, Elneny, Martinez, Akpom, Mertesacker, Walcott, Gnabry, Debuchy, Sanogo.

    I'm guessing Cech will join in a week or two afterwards while all those involved in the Euro's and Copa America will return to training around the end of July. It's a big opportunity for the likes of Akpom, Reine-Adelaide, Willock, Zelalem, Crowley to really make an impression.

    Lacazette injured. No chance of him signing now.

    I don't get why we aren't in for Ashley Williams. £12M to Everton seems a steal to me. He's certainly a leader and the sort of guy we could use at the back.

    I think he'd be ruthlessly exposed in our defence.

    I also tihnk it's a bit of an irrelevance about names. They'd all all be exposed and struggle in our system, unless they had the recovery speed of Usain Bolt.

    Resale Value.

    Joking of course, but I would prefer Mustafi, not particularly because of this season but for the next manager too, at the right age as well.

    Wouldn't say 12m is a steal considering he's 31, seems about right to me.

    There is literally no point in Arsenal FC any more. None what so ever. It's not a competitive team, it's not a community driven team. It's a cold, money making business masquerading as a football club.

    Cech, Ospina, Martinez

    Koscielny, Mustafi*, Gabriel, Mertesacker, Holding, Chambers
    Bellerin, Debuchy, Jenkinson ------------------------------------------------------- Monreal, Gibbs

    Xhaka, Elneny, Ramsey, Cazorla, Coquelin, Wilshere

    OxCham, Walcott ---------------------------- Özil -----------------------------Sanchez, Iwobi

    Giroud, Lucas Perez*, Welbeck, Akpom​

    *if they happen

    That's a big squad. I think Debuchy and Chambers will be off. Could do with an upgrade on the right wing.

    I like the depth if the transfers go through.I looked at they Spurs bench today and was quite surprised with the lack of options they had. If and when everyone is fit we have genuine options to change a game now.

    We have to accept that Mustafi and Perez could take some time to settle. I honestly have no idea what kind of player Perez is or his potential (Other than a showreel on youtube) As I think you have said in other posts, it didn't matter in the end, we needed someone. Everyone knows we really needed a stronger option upfront, but that conversation has been discussed enough. Let's hope Perez can have an impact.

    I think it would be a mistake to let both Debuchy and Chambers leave as we don't have many other options at RB. Our luck with injury and the moment they leave Bellerin will be out.

    I see Sanchez is injured on international duty. Calf injury apparently.
