Name the realistic option we’re linked to you prefer…I’ll wait.

Strengthening the squad? You know we lost one of the top 3 players in his position right? The squad is already weakened, now it’s about finding the replacement that is the most serviceable. Again, please tell me who from Bellerin, Dumfries and Zappacosta you prefer.
The most realistic now for me is Bellerin. Not because I think he is a great player but it's a loan deal so we can decided at the end of the season if he is good enough. Dumfries is just not good enough. We don't have much money so we should invest the money in players who allmost certain would be an addition to the squad. Dumfries would cost us 20/25M and we have to pay Raiola another shit load of money. Why invest in someone who only played good at the EC and in the Dutch league. I know I'm the one who pushed for Eredivisie transfers (Onana, Tagliafico and before that Ziyech) but we have all seen that Ziyech, VDB, Klaassen, Kluivert etc aren't good enough to play themself into the starting eleven at various clubs and except for Kluivert all these players were considered the best players of the league.The jump from Eredivisie to Serie A or any other top 5 competition is to big for most of the players. You have always exceptions like De Ligt and De Jong but these 2 players are on their way to become world-class.

Every player after Hakimi is a downgrade I know that but I don't think Dumfries is much better than Darmian. We should stay far away from Eredivisie players right now because we can't take gambles with our money. We can gamble with loan transfers as we might end up not getting the player or in Bellerin his case he might not get enough playtime to trigger some clause. I would even try and get Vrsaljko IF he is fit enough and try to work some loan deal with Atletico. We should try and get loan deals for most of the players we want because we can't afford to take gambles with the little money we have to spend.

He is not susceptible to injury as many people here think, there was only one after which he could not return to his normal level for himself, but we know how to restore players after the Premier League, for example, Darmian, Lukaku, Sanchez ... So I think it will be good deal if we take him with a option to buy

Almost every EPL player we got in this 2 years improved at Inter.

Yeah I get that others from that league have failed but many have also succeeded. That’s the same for any of the smaller leagues. Atalanta shops there almost every year and more times then not finds good players.

There is a reason Bellerin is potentially available on a loan with option. The guy seems more interested in fashion then football the past few years and he’s had injury issues.

If he comes I hope he surprises me.

He's not available for a loan with an option. At least not at the moment.

This is a good documentary about his fight back from an ACL injury. He does seem like a genuinely nice guy.

Bellerin won`t deserve that reported 3.5m/year and we already know, so here`s to hoping this is just smokescreen for our actual target.

Where`s the vid? Can`t see the URL.


I don't want a nice guy. I want a winner

"Did I not prepare for the game properly? Did I not sleep properly" - Only the fact that he asks himself these questions tell you a lot!!! He is not consistent about his professionalism.

Looks like he has a "victim" type of personality that can easily fall into depression. Was there ever a happy version of Bellerin?

EDIT: Is he also homosexual or bisexual? Seems to actively support the LGBT community: https://www.premierleague.com/video/single/1926051

3:40 in his own video:

During a lengthy interview with The Times, he said: "I don't know if football is ready for that yet.
"I'm having conversations with Gay Gooners, and sometimes they go to an Arsenal pub and they'll have issues with other Arsenal fans because they're wearing a Gay Gooners scarf or something.

"People have called me 'lesbian' for growing my hair. There are other kinds of homophobic insults. I have learned to grow a thick skin but it can affect you. Every now and again, you get a bit of self-doubt."
"The problem is that people have an idea of what a footballer should look like, how they should behave, what they should talk about," Bellerin added. "You act a little differently and you become a target.
"There is pressure to conform. This is very dangerous. In life, you should be allowed to express yourself. People are happier like this."
There are currently no active, openly gay footballers in the Premier League and Bellerin believes it remains difficult for a player to come out than it would be if they were involved in another sport.
"It is impossible that anybody could be openly gay in football," he said. "Some fans are not ready.
"When it happened in rugby with the Welsh player [Gareth Thomas], people respected the situation. The fans respected his decision.
"In football, the culture is different. It can be very personal, very nasty, particularly for players from the opposition team."

I agree with him and I believe there are players on top level that did not publicly come out of their closet.

From the wise words of Conor McGregor circa 2016, “Who the fook is that guy?

Funny thing is that this source retweeted an Arsenal fanpage tweet that referenced his self-generated rumor.

He's a Portuguese twitter "insider" who had also claimed Joao Mario to Sporting was done for 7.5m.

There was indeed an agreement of 7.5m; so he is reliable?!?

It was basically "done", until Sporting acted like a pussy and halved in the official document.

Don't have one.
Still stand by it that he is one of the worst options out there, even if we get him. However, this deal will be much more palatable if we get nandez as well.
