January transfer Window - All I want is a dribbler

Fergie Fledglings is a complete team with:
#1 - A crosser - David Beckham
#2 - A dribbler - Ryan Gibbs
#3 - A playmaker - Paul Scholes
#4 - An enforcer - Roy Keane

What have we got now?
#1 - A crosser - Xhaka?
#2 - A dribbler - ???
#3 - A playmaker - Ozil
#4 - AN enforcer - Torreira.

I see the priority is to have a dribbler to complete the set to break into Top-4.

A dribbler will help out Aubameyang and Lacazette in 3-4-3 counter-attack.

Man City have Sterling, Sane, Mahrez, Bernardo SIlva, David Silva and De Bruyne.

Liverpool have Salah, Mane and Frimino.

Tiny Totts have Eriksen, Son and Lamela.

ManU have Martial, Lingard and Alexis.

Chelski have Pedro, Hazard and Willian.

We do not have dribbler of the same class as above Top-5.

For this season, we have loads of defenders and goalie once they are all fit.
Not a priority this season to buy another defender.
Just tough it out and see who to cut and who to keep for next season.

We have loads of midfielders and again, Emery will just tough it out and see which youngsters will be promoted and which senior players need to cut.

I see the priority in January Transfer Window is to buy a dribbler.

21-game unbeaten proved that we have defenders and midfielders once they are all fit.
Plus, Emery needed this season to make a judgement call as to which Wenger players to cut and how many youths are ready to promote to senior squad. He needed to watch his budget and to balance a squad with experienced players and hoemgorwn products.

We cant sort of the defense in one window, but a dribbler will add goals, so i kind of agree but we need at least one CB for sure

If we were serious about Mahrez before when he asked for a transfer from Leicester and clearly stated he would be keen on a move to Arsenal, we could have a bona-fide trickly dribbler. But Wenger said, we already have the same type of players in the club like Ozil (not!) and Iwobi (are you mad, old man??).

Tbf all the others are mad as well. I have no idea why City and man utd are after sanchez when mahrez is ten times the player, even when sanchez was playing for us.

His passing and game sense is way above the likes sanchez, sane etc... We may feel as fans that we would not really be able to judge the player just through television and those football scouts and managers know better, but some of them are absolute idiots and don't see faulty technique/bad attitude when we can see them miles away.

I think mahrez just had a horrible agent who didn't really do much for him compared to the likes of chamberlain that Liverpool signed for 35mn lol when Mahrez was available for roughly the same

What I am saying is that we could have bagged Mahrez when he was "available", but Wenger said we didn't need him because we already had IWOBI. I will never get over this!!

How can Wenger ever made a comparison like this?? He must have begun to go senile especially in the past 2 years. Comparing Mahrez to Iwobi is like comparing a sparkling diamond to a....piece of bad chewing gum!!

Jeez … Auba had only 13 touches and most of them during kick-off.

I maintained, priority is to get a dribbler first, then defenders.
If you can't score, you won't win.

I partially agree. But we need at least one CB. Though I agree it's about scoring now goals than opposition right now as i dont think signing 2 players will solve the defensive issues. We need 3 players, a LB, a CB, and a RB to impetus defensively. Sokratis is ok as long as there is a leader along side him

If we sign Adrien Rabiot, he will instantly replace Xhaka, Ramsey and even Ozil leaving plenty of changes to pay his salary.

#1 - Just sell Xhaka and Elneny to Basel.
#2 - Let Ramsey leaves in January.
#3 - Loan Ozil to Inter or Real or ManU or any Turkish club to free up space in the squad.

Ozil is the poisoned chalice that both Gazidis and Wenger left behind for Emery to clean up.

Best too take it on the chin and cut our losses over Ozil.

I hope we buy some young players I've never heard of.

We do have a dribbler - and interestingly he's been in the squad for the last few matches, but unused - Saka

He looks like a tremendous talent and extraordinary that has emerged from nowhere to be in the first team squads. Can't see why we don't give him a chance or two in the team

Aaron Ramsey: Arsenal midfielder in talks with Bayern, Inter, Juventus, PSG & Real Madrid.
I will be amazed if he ends up at PSG or Real Madrid.

If you want a dribbler break d bank n get Felipe Anderson. He's having a season of his life for West ham.

Iwobi > saka at the moment even in going past ppl. Iwobi probably better than Nelson as well in EPL terms at the moment although i haven't watched Nelson a lot recently

Commentator on my stream has just said that we won't be buying in January as this is not a good time to buy. We've heard that all before, we might have won the league instead of Leciester if we'd reinforced our squad in the Jan transfer window that season.

Emery said we'll try and bring in 1 or 2 players if the deal is right. He also confirmed that Gary Cahill isn't someone they are thinking about

Unai is playing close to his chest.
I am sure he knew the players he wanted with Mislintat going off the radar and suddenly sprang a surprise to us with another "Mavropanos" or "Guendouzi" or "Torreira".

Sky have us loosely linked to Cengiz Ünde, a 21 year old right winger playing for Roma right now.
