My nephew txt me yesterday, reckons he's heard somewhere that Emery to L'pool in the summer is a done deal, and wants to take Dougie and Bailey with him too? Can't see any legs in it myself?

Can’t see this happening Allstar, Emery already has experience of taking a job where his predecessor had legendary status at Arsenal, that turned out badly for him and he had to go away and rebuild his reputation so I can’t see him falling into that trap again. I think we are more at risk losing him to a club like Bayern who are having a bit of a rough time and are looking to replace Tuchel.

I see the rumours around Mario Hermoso are strengthening, a left sided player who can play either as a centre back or left back and is available on a free sounded like a sensible bit of business to me, as I thought signing him and sending Lenglet back to Barcelona would save a chunk in terms of wages as Lenglet is on a contract worth circa £7 million per year. Imagine my surprise when I looked that last year Hermoso was on a contract worth £36, 000 a week, however this year his salary has jumped to a whopping £133, 000 which came as a real surprise as I didn't think La Liga was noted as paying big money with the exception of Barcelona and Real Madrid. So if we do pursue a deal we aren't going to be reducing the wage bill significantly.

He’s not getting any younger though, am I mixing him up or is he 31? If he comes in I wonder will that mean mings is on his bike?

He’s 28 I think

Your right lotm, lots of articles on him this morning, he’s probably one that will depend on champions league qualification, I’d imagine he will have lots of suitors…
Talks of Tim going to Ajax for 15 million, wouldn’t be bad business imo, he has talent but still pretty raw.

So after all the talk of arsenal wanting luiz in the summer, and huge admirers of Watkins, the latest is they are now interested in Bailey, seriously is there any truth in any of these stories or are all these journalists just playing pin the tail on the donkey in the hope they eventually get one right🤷‍♂️
How are they fixed in relation to ffp, they have spent quiet a few Bob the last few seasons and I'm sure they have quiet the wage bill, any ED's able to shed any light on their current financial situation?

{Ed002's Note - Douglas Luiz (CM/DM) Juventus failed with an offer of a straight swap deal for Aston Villa's Douglas Luiz in the summer. Arsenal interest has moved on to a preferred option but if they are unable to sign him and if Partey or Jorginho move on, then interest may return. Spurs may offer an option. Aston Villa will resist a sale. Wildcard would be a return to Manchester City to replace KP.
Ollie Watkins (S) Agent is looking for options and has spoken with Arsenal. Aston Villa want a new contract,

I am not aware of interest in Bailey.}

We shouldn’t be surprised at our top performers attracting interest from other clubs, over the last 18 months we have gone from being a side on the edge of the relegation zone to challenging for European football that will attract interest from the top sides. We have protected ourselves somewhat by getting Bailey, Watkins and Luiz to sign new contracts recently so we are in the driving seats when it comes to sales. That said however I do think that we are likely to let one of our stars go in the summer in order to ease any profitability and sustainability pressures.

Ed just as a matter of interest, who was the juve player they wanted to swap for luiz?

{Ed002's Note - Moise Kean and Weston McKennie.}

Latest rumour is our owners will give Unai Emery a £200 million budget in the summer providing 2 conditions are met. Firstly we qualify for the Champions League and secondly we sell Douglas Luiz. Interesting if true.

Anyone with an accountancy qualification care to square this rumour with FFP rules? I understood we were having to sell players to comply so how can we spend £200m on new players. Sorry if I’m being thick

Agree0 Disagree0

Menace, I think the additional £100 million is largely based on a number of assumptions. Firstly if we finish 4th we get just shy of £38 million in prize money, we also get circa £16 million just for qualifying for the Champions League, when the draw is made we get another million so that takes us to £55 million then for every win in the group stage you get £3 million plus a further £10 million if you get to the last 16. Any shortfall would be made up from TV revenue plus commercial spin offs from CL qualification. What I don’t get though is if our wage bill is near the UEFA ceiling how by selling just one player and getting his wages off the books will allow us to buy 3-4 quality recruits whose combined salaries were will surely be way more than what we save from taking one large earner off the books and therefore exceed the 90% threshold. That’s why I think the whole summer will be interesting in terms of what we do going forward.

I think the wage thing is a load of rubbish lotm, we are nowhere near some of the clubs in regard to the wage bill, there are teams out there who pay 4 or 5 players the equivalent of our whole team. I think if we qualify for champions league and win the conference along with selling a few players excluding the likes of luiz and Watkins etc we won’t be in a bad position.
It will be an interesting summer for sure, god only knows what plans NSWE have. I think a lot of these reporters are playing the guessing game

I don’t think it is rubbish Whack, the article I referred to in my previous post made it clear that to play in Europe we cannot spend more than 90% of our income on salaries. We generated £217 million last year 90% of that is circa £195 million. We actually spent £190 million so we don’t have a lot of headroom to play with. Interestingly I caught the end of a discussion on TalkSPORT where they were identifying the clubs most at risk from profitability and sustainability rules and we were in that list.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Mar 2024 00:15:27
Ah ok I get you now, it’s 90% of our income, I thought you were saying UEFA have a ceiling for wages and every club has the same, that makes sense then. 👍

Then we definitely need to sell more than one player if we are to recruit a couple, all I keep hearing though is the club have a business plan and it’s going the way they want, maybe part of it is player sales but I do have a feeling that the board have cards to play that we don’t know about.

It’s all bs though to be fair, we haven’t spent ridiculous amounts on any player, we have built a team that can compete with the top teams but UEFA and the premier league want to keep their boot on our heads, our owners are mega rich there is no risk of our club going under, there should be some kind of system where owners have to put X amount of money in a pot that can’t be touched unless the club needs it to stop it going into administration.

I do fear if we sell luiz or Watkins, it will set us back 2 or 3 years at least, unless we can do a Brighton and find really good players for knock down prices.

Good thread for me personally I'd sell Kamara who cost nothing and Ramsey who also cost us nothing and Digne who is one of the highest paid this should get us near 80 million and with other revenue should give us circa 100 million hopefully that will be enough to help with restructuring.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Mar 2024 13:48:20
I think digne doesn’t get enough credit, I think we are better with him on the field, he is on high wages though. both kamara and Ramsey seem to be quiet injury prone so if it meant keeping our main guys I’d happily let them go, surely they would be worth the bones of 100k between them?

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Mar 2024 22:41:30
I prefer Digne to Moreno but I think he's destined for a Saudi offer. Emery prefers Moreno so it won't be him making way.
We will be taking care with wages so Digne going, and Lenglet who is an expensive stop gap returning to Barca, will free up a large chunk of funds.
Those 2 are £300-350k per week combined so we could probably get 3-4 good players for that.
Kamara is very important for us if he can stay fit but is also a pretty hefty wage. If we're going to miss him for 10-20 games every year then maybe it would be shrewd to look at alternatives, but he's not going to fetch good money this summer with his ACL injury.

Agree0 Disagree0

According to the Daily Mail, we are considering making Lenglet's loan deal from Barcelona permanent. Thoughts? 🤔

Hard to see unless he plans on selling mings for 40 or 50 million. he’s not to bad in terms of backup so maybe if he can be bought on the cheap as a squad player

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Mar 2024 19:10:26
Everything I am reading suggests we are going to have to sell in the summer before we can buy, I am not sure that Lenglet will be the priority I think Barcelona will be looking for £25-30 million minimum and given we will have Konsa, Mings Carlos and Torres we don’t need another centre back in my view

Agree0 Disagree0

We are well and truly cursed with injuries this season now Kamara out for season our luck has got to change soon

Rumours that Jack has walked out of training, supposedly due to not getting a start .

Believable0 Unbelievable0

Next one off to the Middle East perhaps? He certainly doesn’t seem to be a first choice pick lately. Can’t see walking out of training getting him anywhere though 🤔

New L/B from Arsenal, Lion Sousa 19, if Digna staying, I can't see the urgency.
