We’ll have an Osimhein, the Rice, some Diaby, and, um, Guehi.

Okay, so that’s a wild wish-list, but it’s not so outlandish that we should rule it out. For one, Silent Stan Kroenke has re-registered Arsenal as a private limited company (PLC), furthering a move away from the public company model. The downside? Shares of the club are no longer available to the public. The upside? Kroenke is taking on a larger role in financing the club, as evinced by his spending £400 million on new signings in recent years. This is the water in which we swim. At least Kroenke doesn’t have his hands sullied by any significant human rights abuses…

Forget Caicedo. It’s Rice or bust.

Tantalus has nothing on the Arsenal when it comes to transfer rumours, even less when it comes to finding the next dominant DM/#6/Heir to Vieira. With that as a backdrop, there have been some mouth-watering rumours circling around us circling both Moisés Caicedo and Declan Rice. We’re gonna need a bigger boat and all that. Sadly, it seems that Brighton’s form not to mention its recent transfer business may have shut the door on Caicedo bolstering our ranks.

Is Tierney’s time at Arsenal over?

Verdict? Thumbs up, or…

It wasn’t so long ago that Kieran Tierney was one of our best and most-reliable performers and a fan-favourite to boot. From his passion and performance on the pitch, his Tesco-toting ways, or his utter refusal to dress sensibly on cold day, it really felt like he had nailed down a firm position in the XI. Fast-forward a year, and Tierney is very much out in the cold, with persistent, nagging rumours eating away at his tenure. Injuries haven’t helped, and there’s the arrival of Zinchenko.

Sans Saliba, should Arsenal seek out and sign a new CB?

William Saliba’s injury continues to sap our strength; we’ve now stumbled to those three consecutive draws without him, and Arteta has suggested that the Frenchman is “not there yet to start to throw him into the pitch at the level the sessions demand to compete.” If he wasn’t fit to face Southampton, it’s hard to imagine he’ll be fit to face Man City, not after missing the last five matches. His absence has only highlighted his importance, but is it time to consider a replacement?

Bellingham’s bombshell: does he admire Arteta’s Arsenal?

Tongues have been wagging about Jude Bellingham, the 19 year old Englishman who’s been setting the Bundesliga on fire with his performances, and he’s been linked to the biggest, shiniest clubs (with apologies to Dortmund) this summer. LIverpool recently begged off, citing his potential £100m transfer fee but also the monumental nature of their own rebuild. Perhaps more-explosive has been Bellingham’s own confessions about his future, which just might indicate that Aresnal could be his preferred destination.
