The search for a centre half


#61

what the fuck is oneline arsenal


#62

Haha, well spotted. I hadn’t noticed that.


#63

I wouldn’t mind us getting mussachio in, I think he could be signed for £15-20m he’s a strong, quick defender and he has previously partnered Gabriel


#64

Oh wait…you said Mussachio , sorry I misread.


#65

Better defender than Otamendi but I haven’t checked him out since his leg break.

How is he coping?


#66

Musacchio is a good defender but like Vermaelen is an injury-prone.


#67

I don’t think they are going to let him go. Not that easily. He is there mainstay. It’s telling imo they got rid of both Gabriel and Bailly and he is still there. Although his leg break played some factor.

Not to badly, he’s only played in three, four games mind since fracturing his fibula but in that time he helped keep a couple of clean sheets, one vs Valencia in Villarreal’s 2-0 win at the Mestalla and the other was at the El Madrigal when he came on for the injured Bailly in their 1-0 over Liverpool. He started the 2nd leg at Anfield but couldn’t really do alot to stop Liverpool winning 3-0 on the night.

Looks like Musacchio’s off to Milan anyway, he’s already agreed personnel terms with them and hasn’t been training since from what I’ve been reading but with Milan’s transfer funds being frozen until the new Chinese consortium takes over the deal might fall through especially with Villarreal / Musacchio understandably given Milan an ultimatum.

Ah, if not for injury concerns, this would have been a no brainier for us.
Shame really as he can be world class.
