Every one seems to be in a panic over no cb coming in
I think we can wait until January.

We have:

Keane, Mina
Holgate, Gibson

And I’m sure Pennington even if does go will have a recall clause
Worst case Sidibe looks a solid enough defender he could fill in well

I agree we in the long term need kurt Zouma

But rather than buy rubbish I would rather wait 6/12 months and sign him than spend 30mlion on someone rubbish

Although I do think we try and test Bournemouth on Ake
Of those available (or at least their club naming a valuation) he is one I like
£75m is a massive amount of money

But it’s a sellers market and I reckon he oils help us get to next level
Certainly rate him higher than Maguire so if we can talk them down to £60m I’would consider that excellent business.

These rumours I’ve heard that Ashley Williams has returned are extremely worrying though.

I agree Sh, we don't want to make any last minute panic buys ( that don't work out and then on wage bill for 4 years. A loan deal ok, we've made some great signings this window. Remember NSNO, on that point is Iwobi good enough for anything more than cover considering what we have. To me another Arsenal cast off re Theo.

I understand all everyone worry about defence but I have a funny feeling we have given up on a CB and I think we may use gbamin there as he can play that position and sort a CB another window I think there focusing more on zaha.

Personally I don’t think Iwobi was ever a big target I think he was used to prompt Zaha requesting a move!
Today I would expect an attempt to get Zaha done, possibly one last try at Doucoure and then a loan move for Either Tomori or Rojo is also a possibility

{Ed025's Note - please not rojo SH..

Ed025 if it’s just a loan as cover mate I could live with it
A permanent deal would be upsetting 😂
I mentioned on another post about Rojo a few days ago (heard it from a friend) and it just doesn’t seem to be going away
I would honestly go to Bournemouth with an offer for Ake
Maybe a deal seeing Gibson going on loan as well.

{Ed025's Note - im not a rojo fan scone head, but as you say maybe a loan deal would be ok but i would like a CB on a permanent deal really mate...ake would be good..
