I like the Torreria proposed move. We need a battler in the middle. Size don't matter. He is a baller.

They are. Rumours from Uruguay saying 2 players will be allowed to go finalised deals for 2 days. They say Arsenal bid for Torreira accepted.



But a very interesting rumour is another one that has been doing the rounds quietly. Rumours are, Arsenal have offered Leverkusen €20m for Leno, Bayer are apparently willing to forego the clause if Arsenal pay €22m + Bonuses. Deal is very close.

Sportsbild claim, it is done to be announced soon.

Many of us here have seen Bernd Leno play for his club Beyer Levekuson. He has serious talent, he is strong on air, good command of the area, excellent shot stopper with excellent reflexes making top reflex saves. He is also great on 1-on-1, but he will fit in Emery's style because he is a very good ball playing keeper.

I used to rate him really highly but his form of recent has been really bad. He has made a lot of errors, according to OPTA, made the 2nd most errors (9) leading to goals since the 2016/17 season. But I have to be fair and say, he cannot be any worse than Cech. We need two goalkeepers as Ospina is potentially leaving so at his age and price, it is a good deal.

There is a silver lining for us. PSG's goal keeping coach is now at Arsenal, look how much he improved Areloa. If he can getnLeno back to his pre 2016 form, then we have a top class to world class goal keeper.

Le Coq asked to leave the club. He has said so himself. He is a good athlete and his size has nothing to do with him losing his place and leaving. Le Coq ball playing limitations created a problem for him because Arsenal no longer needed a 'water carrier' to go fetch the ball for Santi. This has nothing to do with size or athleticism.

Not one thing you said about Xhaka is correct, the stats, which are objective and I have posted many times shows he can do all what you claim he cannot do and is amongst the best in his position in the league. You opinion cannot change facts, but keep trying :taunt: :taunt: :taunt:

As for Torreira, I have told you to go watch him play 90 minutes football before you comment.

Here is what I said about the player a few days ago.

Quote:
If Arsenal bring Lucas Torreira for the €25m release clause, it will our signing of the summer. This is a player I look at and say, damn we need him at Arsenal. What I love about this player the most is his character. He is the pitbull we need beside Xhaka/Niles that fulfils our need for both a ball winner, plus a nasty, needle player all in one package.

He plays at the base of a diamond at Sampdoria, but he is primarily a defensive player that carries the ball out very well. He is also a brilliant passer of the football, he can do everything and he is a warrior supreme. He is like Kante and Verratti. But he is compared more to the later. Although he is not yet as good as Verratti, there is no doubting his potential. He will fulfil a role we so desperately need in our midfield.

Like I said 2 years ago if there was a Coach I'd picked to replace Wenger, it was Emery. Right now, if there was a defensive midfielder in a 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1 formation I want in football which is a realistic target for Arsenal, it is Lucas Torriera. Something Aniks will like is, in a 4-3-3, Xhaka will have to make way for Torriera to play central of the 3.

In today's market, getting the exact midfielder you need for below £30m is a ridiculous coup, and I won't lie, knowing Arsenal and how parsimonious they are, is one reason I targeted this player. A lot of the Genoa papers saying, his Agent financial demands holding up the deal. :curse:

This player has the profile to play with any of our current CMs and I actually think we are looking a situation of Xhaka having Bherami and/or Zakaria, and difference it makes for Switzerland. But there is the other possibility of him and Niles with Ramsey in a 4-3-3.


Now compare and contrast the highlighted to the section in David Ornstein' s tweet, that reads.

Quote:
...but central midfield a priority & 22yo Uruguay int’l seen as ideal fit technically + financially.


If you had a clue about the player, you will not even mention size. Read my post and read David Ornstein's. It is obvious I know what is required by Arsenal both footbalistically and financially. I also explained why and jow he fits into the new Manager's philosophy.

If you are objective and not fixated in your dislike for a player because he does not fit the profile of the player you want, then you miss the point. It is not what you or me want that matters, it is what we think the Coach wants on the basis of finance and football analysis that matters

Since you have been on Xhaka's case, he has gradually improved to be a far better player than the one that first kicked a ball in this league. I know cos I have all his numbers compared to his peers playing in the same position in the league. Chelsea spent far more money than we did on Xhaka for Bakayoko, what happened to him last season? Xhaka had a far better first season than Bakayoko but not once have you criticised him. Don't get me wrong, I am not saying he is a bad player and he is one I wanted at Arsenal but he was a major disappointment. I still expect him to come good.

Remember ya yeye yarns about LeCoq when i said we need a bigger more atheltic version of him? Nothing against little terriers but when they face bigger stronger versions of themselves in the EPL, well Waffis fake stats no go bail them out.

Anwyay ive only watched minutes of videos on the guy but im concerned about his stature in a position wherer size and athleticism matters :idea:

What Arsenal could have been three years ago with the combo of GK and Nzonzi for a price that was almost equal to the fee for Xhacrap :curse: :curse:

IDIOTAS :curse:


Are you saying he is not athletic? Or is your fixation with size blinding your eyes to the fact that size is not the be all and end all. No good having size, without heart, attitude and if you cannot play, for example? How tall was Roy Keane?

Forget your crappy videos, watch full games. Don't worry, you will see him play for Uruguay in coming days.

Arsenal agree £26.4m deal to sign Sampdoria’s Lucas Torreira.


https://amp.theguardian.com/football/2018/jun/12/arsenal-sampdoria-lucas-torreira-agree-deal-transfer?CMP=share_btn_tw&__twitter_impression=true

For me, this deal must be done before the WC or else the club's with more money will take the player off us.

While he is looking for big players, he forgets about what is really needed given the philosophy of the Coach and how he wants to play it. Emery's teams does like the physical, athletic type that can play, but we have Niles, Sheaf and Da Silva. I don't think Emery is the type to ignore such talent and go into the market. What we are looking for is a Torreira type. A ball winner who can play and he has a helluva shot on him too when he ventures forward.

BTW! Torreira can also replace Xhaka cos his ability offers flexibility.

In a 4-3-3 formation. The base 3 can be Niles-Xhaka-Torreira. This base along with the back 4, offers everything in defence and attacking from deep. Niles and Torreira have the pace and ability to run with the ball at pace from deep when they win it. Torreira has a good bit of Santi's passing range.

The problem here will be who misses out of Ozil, Laca, Auba and Ramsey for remaining attacking 4 places.

There is no way Emery will play Ramsey as one of the 2 or or 3 in a 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3 formation. He is far more pragmatic and defensive. Besides, he will not need to because it is becoming obvious there will be changes.

We all talk if those coming in. It will be interesting to see those going out.



Waffi again sometimes I wonder if dem drop you down tree head first for Sapele :taunt:

Again raising a concern about a diminutive foreign player coming to play in a rugged EPL at a physically demanding position na em dey cause you all these comprehension issues?

Like I said I haven’t really watched him play live but I’m really concerned about his size just like I said about Le Coq, and was proven right, despite your usual “always wrong “ drivel :taunt:


Are you serious? Le Coq lost his place when the one player who complimented him got injured. Notice how effective he became at Valencia playing with a players similar to Santi.

But Arsenal must get Xhaka to sign a new deal first before the season starts.

Is Valencia in the EPL or La Liga? That's kinda tranniks' point innit? :?

There is no way Emery will play Ramsey as one of the 2 or or 3 in a 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3 formation. He is far more pragmatic and defensive. Besides, he will not need to because it is becoming obvious there will be changes.

We all talk if those coming in. It will be interesting to see those going out.



Waffi again sometimes I wonder if dem drop you down tree head first for Sapele :taunt:

Again raising a concern about a diminutive foreign player coming to play in a rugged EPL at a physically demanding position na em dey cause you all these comprehension issues?

Like I said I haven’t really watched him play live but I’m really concerned about his size just like I said about Le Coq, and was proven right, despite your usual “always wrong “ drivel :taunt:


Are you serious? Le Coq lost his place when the one player who complimented him got injured. Notice how effective he became at Valencia playing with a players similar to Santi.

BTW! Coq is physical and very athletic. Him losing out was cos he lost his form, when he lost the one player he complimented.

I have been banging on here since we got Xhaka that he needs a 'Kante' like player next to him. We saw how well Xhaka played in Germany with that player that complimented him. Xhaka has improved his mobility and overall game since he joined Arsenal. He has said playing box to box has improved him, that is not in doubt. The numbers don't lie.

For me, if we get Torreira, we have addressed a huge hole in our system. His signing, if it happens, will be one of the buys of the summer. Why? Xhaka and Torreira have attributes that will compliment each other extremely well. We need partnerships in CM, we just could not get the blend right since Santi's injury. With Santi gone, it is clear the club had to do something.

Come next season, I know you will be reading people claim Emery has improved Xhaka, that will be because, Wenger has done all the hard work in the last two seasons, now he needs the right player next to him and in Torreira together with Niles, I am confident we will be a match for any midfield in the league.

But Arsenal must get Xhaka to sign a new deal first before the season starts.

Is Valencia in the EPL or La Liga? That's kinda tranniks' point innit? :?

Repeat after me...

Look at this disgusting pervert, you back again sucking my d1ck. Nice to see you are back to doing what you do best. You foul, rabid invested perv. Who said Valencia was in the EPL?

I am talking football, what do you know about it? Coq plays with Parejo in that Los Che midfield. What do you know about the football similarities to when he played with Santi at Arsenal? Fark all.

No surprises you write that crap, you know not about the game, so just fark off and stay out of my posts. I do not intend to have a discourse with a perv like you, so stay in your lane. Disgusting perv.

Is the young Ozilite (Adli) still coming to Arsenal?

Rumours of him staying at PSG after an offer he could not refuse.



Stop telling fables ... he used arsenal as a pawn and played them like a fiddle for a better deal :taunt:


Fair play to the player. He has to take care of himself. I will do the same. I really like the player but if he choses to stay at PSG, good luck to him.

Sagna on #Arsenal: "They definitely need some leadership. The team is & was too nice. They never liked to argue. We were just too nice to each other, we were like friends. To be successful you need to be bad sometimes, to have a go at each other"
