I'm not sure how people can on one hand want us to spend £120m on a transfer and on the other turn down £50m just for their own pride.
How can people say that Pickford or insert-player-here isn't worth £30m then say one season of Alexis is worth £50m?
If it was a case of him staying and maybe signing an extension it might be worth the gamble, but right now it feels like he's going to stay and then leave and join a "rival" anyway. There's already been some kind of issue for Wenger to feel the need to drop him, so I doubt he's in love with Wenger or the club.
Of course we need that money.
