Which full backs do you want us to sign in the summer?

I watched the Leeds vs Norwich match and yet again Max Aarons was brilliant. We need to sign him in the summer, he will be better than Trent Alexander Arnold. He can play left and RB just as well.

At lB Ferland Mendy would be a briiliant signing. He's a beast.

These 2 would transform us. I'd get rid of Koladinic and keep Monreal as back up.

Yes touted Aarons on here not too long ago. Looks quality.

Completely unrealistic but I'd love Ben Chilwell and Aaron Wan-Bissaka. Sounds like City might be targeting them both though...

Chillwell was on Wenger's radar for a long time but for some reason, just could not make the deal happen.

I've got twitter evidence of myself touting Chilwell when he was a kid. Obviously hindsight is a beautiful thing but would've been great if we could've got some of them.

Joe Gomez was another as well.

John Cross has allegedly said that summer funds available will be more like £40 million than £100 million. Makes me wonder whether the full back areas will be priorities...

Reported last night that Emery wants three players, including a left back

Monreal will be with us for one more season.
Kolasinac is still here.

And when we play 3-5-2 with Holding-Kolasinac at left side, we were solid at left flank.

If we signed a 24-27 year old LB, it meant that Kolasinac will be left frustrated warming the bench.

I see us signing another budget 17-19 year old unknown LB and hope to develop him like Guendouzi and Torreira.

Otherwise, Matty, another LB in the youth rank ready to take a step up into senior squad?

I like Celtic's Tierney. Outstanding pace up and down the field and whips in great low crosses into the box with pace. He's a Celtic kid and it was reported that he snubbed a 10 mil bid from us to stay at Celtic in 2016. It would seem the only reason he would move is he decided one day that he wanted to move on to a bigger stage.

Another one I like is Phillip Max. Ausburg. Great pace and energy and likes to get on the ball. Great crosser. This guy will be one of the best. Seems Man U wants him.

I am not convinced with Chilwell, lacks the necessary pace and doesn't have good acceleration needed for a left back in the top league. He seems to be doing well at Leicester but he will be found out at a bigger club. Not a bad player for sure, but not as great as some make him out to be.

I'm almost certain we won't be signing anyone English. It's not in this regime's DNA.

We signed Joel Lopez from Barcelona in the summer. I haven't seen him myself yet but he is supposed to be highly rated.

We've been linked with Alex Grimaldo. I used to sign him year after year from Barcelona on the Football Manager games. His done really well in Portugal. I can't imagine him being in our price range though...

Ok I know he's not a full-back but allegedly we are linked with Gbamin:

We had officials present at the Benfica game yesterday. They won 10-0 and Grimaldo opened the scoring.
