Depends on the player. Cesc still loves us and could return one day - he said recently that he would only leave Barca to come back here. He was also instrumental in convincing Santi to come here last year.

Jack just yesterday came out very publically and said that if Wenger goes, he might as well. That he absolutely loves the Arsenal but he would strongly consider leaving if Wenger were shown the door.

Suarez was stumping to come to us. Higuain had agreed to come.

I am actually not happy with Wenger and am more in the "Wenger out" camp, but to say that we have no attraction to the top talent is BS.

Arsene's been hanging by a thin thread for some time now. If he's 7-10th place by Oct / Nov, a couple of bad results will make him an early casualty, IMO. Wilshire is not going anywhere. Arsenal should and will challenge for the title.

If I was an Arsenal fan I would be RAGING. One off the richest sports clubs on earth and they bid 10million for Cabaye.

1. He is worth around 20million

2. He wouldn't improve the squad

Actually though the chronology is:

1. We talked to Real, the interest in both sides was enough that they gave us permission to talk terms with him.
2. We talked and agreed terms, leaving only for a bid acceptable to Real.
3. Arsene was approached by Suarez's agent, we went for him and never put an actual bid in for Higuain.
4. Higuain went to Napoli.

Any truth to the Ozil to Man United rumours? As a Man United fan, I would love to see that one come true.

Arsenal should have signed Higuain. Arsenal should have beaten Spurs to sign Capoue. He was just the type of midfield maestro they needed. Giroud and Podolski are good, Giroud has improved vastly since this time last year, but they will struggle to score goals against the top teams.

SPL giants Celtic has apparently made attempts to sign Marko Arnautovic (Werder Bremen) and Lukas Podolski (Arsenal), but failed.

Now keen to sign Finnish international Teemu Pukki from Schalke. At least two bids has been made, both rejected. Birds chirping in my ear this afternoon claims a new bid around 3m has been made, but Schalke wants to extract a bit more. Another rumor says that the player has turned down a preliminary offer as too poor.

But if this goes through and there's any Celtic fans here, you're up for a treat!

He won't be as good as Hooper but Pukki is a decent replacement.
