Alvarez looks looks like a striker on his highlights reel Soccer. He might be playing wide right too, but he looks and moves like a 9 not a winger. He does look like he'd need a bit of time to adapt, but he's the sort of punt at his age and fee we should be taking, we have the squad now to give a player time.

Smith Rowe must have made some encouraging noises for us to be bidding, but I'm afraid we are being used to get him a bummer contract. If we get him I'm sure that's our Jack replacement longer term.

Interesting that we are looking for a specialist set piece coach. With Konsa and Mings, and the amount of fouls Jack draws, it makes a lot of sense to improve that.

Well if not Smith Rowe, that Saka fella looks decent, and links up with our Jack decently and all. We'll 'ave 'im.

Saka's probably the best player Arsenal have produced from their youth ranks since Ashley Cole, or a pre-injury-nightmare Jack Wilshere.  I think we have even less chance of getting him than Smith-Rowe.

What about Ward-Prowse, is that dead? And, apols if i missed it, but is Douggeee definitely not going back to Citeh?

If half of these players join, I can see Sanson quickly departing, Ramsey going out on-loan for a year and Hourihane given a season loan somewhere while we pay most of the last 12 months of his wages.

Have we given up on Sanson already? Smith was suggesting when we bought him that the club had been tracking him for some time...

I'd read he was 'difficult to manage' whatever that means.

Depends on what we're trying to do, I guess.  But I'd see it that if we're to push for the top end of the table, we need 20+ players we can interchange in the first team.  It's not that crazy, IMO, to think that we might want a 5 players competing for those 2 central midfield berths:
- McGinn
- Douglas Luiz
- Sanson
- Ward Prowse (or whoever we're targeting)
- Nakamba (or a better DM)

All offer something a bit different to the others, so we can tailor our midfield to the opposition.  If it's not working, then we have players on the bench who'll be able to change the focus of the team without significantly weakening it.

Same here and no harm in us being seen as the Argentine gateway to the PL should there be any more top talent. Over to Agents Emi.
