While 12 or so Arsenal players have been French since Wenger took over, Juventus have a pretty great history of Frenchmen, including Platini, Zidane and Thuram. I seriously doubt that Pogba would consider that at all. It will come down to a massive bid on our part, and a willingness on Pogba's part ...

And this is all assuming Jenks is loaned out or sold. I don't mind Chambers at RB or as a utility player, but relying on Chambers and Bellerin as our back ups is as suicidal, considering the reality of playing in the PL, with as many games as we play. Chambers has played in a team that doesn't leave...

I don't have a problem letting Jenks go, as Wenger knows best but frick me if we let him leave for 3m. He's already been capped at the international level. He's better than a whole load of fullbacks. He's signed to long term contract. He should be going for 7Mish. ...

So who are we linked with at CB? I really wanted Ginter, but I imagine we will get an older CB to deputize until we get the situation figured out. In terms of long-term options, I actually wouldn't mind John Anthony Brooks. For a big man, he's actually decent on the ball, and as we've seen with ...
