Seems his agents have spoken to a number of English clubs.   So who is a better prospect Gabriel or Badiashile the two young CB's from the French League that seem to be garnishing a lot if interest?

Badiashile burst onto the scene very young and impressed everyone with his maturity as a player, but since then he hasn't really progressed. Monaco fans are delighted at the opportunity to replace him with Axel Disasi while also making a profit.

Gabriel is physically and mentally very strong, good on the ball, good defensively, can pick a pass. At the moment he's way ahead of Badiashile.

Good to know, dont see the French league much, so it's hard to tell.

The very reliable La Voix Du Nord say he's chosen to join Arsenal.

Never seen him play but have heard good things about him. Good age and profile, I think this could be a great bit of business.

Better business than making 55 staff unemployed?

Napoli are close to signing Brazilian Gabriel Magalhaes for £22m and are believed to have agreed on personal terms for the 22-year-old Lille defender, which could enable Manchester City to buy Senegal defender Kalidou Koulibaly, 29, from the Italian club.

Didn’t Everton have a deal for him almost finalised right before covid sort of stopped the world? That’s what a lot of journos that know shit about the Merseyside clubs had claimed a few weeks back.

A bit shit for them that now other clubs are registering their interest in the player.

Arsenal's back line not looking so terrible anymore. 

Aye, two good young talents with this guy and Saliba.

Manchester United tried a last minute advance for Gabriel and offered hum a more lucrative contract but the player ended up picking Arsenal because of the project Arteta presented to him.

Contract will be signed tomorrow.

Seems to be sorted, hopefully we can get a midfielder or two and another forward and it'll be a very good window for us. Just need to get rid of some of the deadwood.

It's a good signing indeed. A position that needed to be sorted as opposed to another London club that seems to forego their centre-back issues...

Because data suggests the deeper issue for us dropping points last season was failing to convert our chances.

I heard it was because you conceded more goals than any other top four club ever has? Could be wrong though?!

We’ve also created the most chances in the league bar Man City, yet our conversion rate has been abysmal. Leaving more pressure on the defence and conceding goals when we should’ve already killed the game off.

Yeah but that doesn't discount the defence could be better?

It could. Hence Chilwell, Potentially Silva and a new GK. 
 

Our creation/conversion rate is the bigger issue, as data has shown. Too many times we fail to convert our chances which led to us dropping points.

Yeah but not scoring doesn't automatically mean you'll concede at the other end?

It's just more likelier you'll concede with a poor defence (getting Chilwell in won't really improve that. Silva & a new GK would, granted). 

Who's the goal-keepers you've been linked with/could sign?
