  1. The reports in the press Sean are that Arsenal have accepted a 4.45m offer from Sporting Lisbon for him, I like Perez think in the right team he will be very successful at 5m or less seems well worth a punt even with his injury record.

  2. If we sign him, we have made a major mistake in the appointment of Pelle. This guy is terrible and cannot even make Arsenal’s matchday squads. He went out on loan last year and did not cut it. The next week will determine everything we need to know about Pelle. I would honestly prefer to play Antonio up top than this lad – what a waste of time and money and I trust we have not even enquired about him.

  3. Could this be the worse signing of the summer, or will he surprise a lot of people?

    • its a good question Sleeps, definitely falls into the punt category being an optimist I always hope for the best Perez (If we sign him) with all these players including strikers still being linked I wouldn’t be surprised if we get more in and Arnie goes to Utd in the last day or two of the window but who knows maybe DS has found his mojo and we will have Laxalt, Bernard,the young central defender from Le Havre, Thiago Maia, Joao Mario and Arnie will stay 😉

  4. You don’t take a punt on 29 year olds. They’re either good enough or they’re not. And Perez would be a return to the bad old days of signing bang average players with no resale value. One to miss me thinks. We need midfielders as a priority anyway.

  5. Jonham i really think you need get yourself over to westhamonline where your stupid comments will be more appriciated.think you must go round with permanent dark cloud above you .
    I dont think this will be a good signing either but but your pelle comment is as stupid as nearly every post you make
