    What's the point in selling Monreal for so litte when you only have 1 other lb? Wasn't he only on a 1 year deal? I guess I get getting something for him, but it seems pretty short sighted. Unless Monreal was pushing for the movie it would have been useful having him around even once Tierney is ready.

    Seems likely it would be a back 3 for the NLD tomorrow then

    Sold the u23 left back, loaned the u23 right back and based on the preseason Medley doesn't look ready so Arsenal appear to be stuck with mouser, at least until January.

    WTF??

    I thought the point was to hold onto him for the NLD... and play him. And SURELY he's professional enough to give his all in that context.

    Edit: Also this seems to telegraph a probable back 3 with Kola at LWB tomorrow. If so, wouldn't that be another reason to hold off on Nacho's deal (or at least announcing it) for 24hrs?

    Transfer can’t be risked by potential injury, I’m sure Sociedad wanted that.

    Yeah I figured that. But still...!

    I guess we were pretty desperate for that 0.25M. :p

    Mkhitaryan to Roma on loan with an option to buy.

    Assumed he would stick around once Iwobi was sold. Opens up opportunities for Saka and ESR.

    Yep - reported yesterday. Bit of a surprise but seems we really do need to shed payroll.

    Emery will still try to use him (from the bench in Italy) before Özil.

    Also seeing some claims of a possible Mustafi to Juventus move. Chiellini tore his ACL and Juventus are rumored to be trying last minutes deals for Mustafi or Lovren to cover for him.

    I've been on the fence about Ramsey's legacy, but if he puts in a good word for Mustafi, he is truly an Arsenal legend.

    There are 6 hours left in the Serie A transfer window. Nothing about the last minute Rugani theatrics gives me any level of confidence a deal can get done for Mustafi at this point.

    Roma covering all of Miki's wages too. Makes the cut price Iwobi sale look even more stupid.

    So in part 2 of the window, we made 3 moves right?
    • Sold Monreal to Sociedad
    • Loaned Elneny to Besiktas
    • Loaned Mkhi to Roma
    Still stuck with Mustafi but hopefully he'll serve some role in the cups, or if we have an unexpected dire emergency in central defense.

    And both ElNeny & Miki are supposed to have buy options next summer.

    He is the only one we could get hard currency for

    The others all just clear headroom and Ramsey left for nothing

    Such criminal mismanagement
