Do we really need another playmaker though ? Feel like we don't need any new additions to our attack, a back up striker for Costa but that's it. ( Remy is too injury prone, Falcao and Pato are simply not good enough)

Other teams can buy all the shiny playmakers and strikers that they want, we have other needs imo.

 

 

IMO yes, and It's just so frustrating because we have so many needs. I'm on the record saying that defense and CM are THE most important areas that need strengthening, but that undoubtedly means that Oscar still remains as our #10 for next season. 

I understand that we cannot replace 5/6 starters in one transfer window, and your right, we do have other needs.

Replacing JT (as he is relegated to a rotation player), and Ivanovic should be the utmost importance. Rudiger doesn't inspire a lot of confidence, so hopefully that doesn't get done, and either Koulibaly or Marquinhos come instead to partner Zouma. As well as a proper LB too. And then in CM we've got another host of issues too, Because we need One Nainggolan is not enough, because another B2B CM is needed too imo. 

A long journey lies ahead of the board in the transfer window indeed.

Yeah i get what you mean we're a long way from the likes of Barca, Real and Bayern. A lot of work to be done.

Yeah agree with that. Would also prefer Koulibaly over Rudiger.

"Oscar still remains as our #10 for next season. "

God i hope not. I don't think he will though. Most likely formations for next season are a 4-4-2 or a 4-4-3.

In the 4-4-2 i think Hazard and Costa would be our strikers with Pedro or Kenedy on the left and Willian on the right.

I don't really see where Oscar would fit in other then as back up for Hazard as the second striker.

In the 4-3-3 the only place he could fit would be as a CM and with Fabregas already playing in our midfield i think Conte will prefer defensively strong and physical players.

I don't think we're going to sell Oscar but i can't see him starting for us.

Totally agree with your points, in my opinion, our transfer priorities should be:

1) New CB - Koulibaly would be nice
2) New CM - Radja would be awesome...but I'm not sure if he'll leave Italy
3) A clinical finisher in attack...as neither Oscar or Willian are great in that aspect. 
4) One youngster to be given a chance as midfield backup (Chalobah has shown he can play the holding midfield role, Ake can play LB or midfield as well)

*I'm holding out hope that Conte can develop Baba into an all-round better player...

I don't know why we don't have the thread for Marcelo Brozovic but nevermind.

He gave the interview today for national newspaper that he could leave Inter this season,and in the end he  said he would like to be new Frank Lampard.

 In some of his first career interviews,while he played at Dinamo,Croatian champion,he said his favorite club is Chelsea. Tbh I don't watch Serie A and I don't know how good(bad) he is,but I saw many of Italian magazines write about him as very good player,and very good potential because he is 23.He could have a important part in Croatian squad on this Euro so maybe he would be good backup plan if we can't sign Radja.

Dani Alves: It was too easy at Barcelona and I felt I had to leave my comfort zone

Quote

Dani Alves admits he is leaving Barcelona because it became 'too easy' to play for the Spanish side.The Brazil defender won 23 trophies in eight years at the Nou Camp and is being linked with a transfer to Italian club Juventus.Alves is not shy to admit that he got too comfortable at Barcelona and that a change is needed.

'What is certain is that I will not stay at Barcelona,' Alves said, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.'In life, we should explore options outside our comfort zone. Barcelona is an amazing club, but things were becoming too easy.'
The 33-year-old wants to stay in Europe but is still considering his options. 
'I always have the desire for a new challenge,' Alves said after Brazil's 0-0 draw with Ecuador in Copa America on Saturday.'I hope that I can bring success like I did at Barcelona to another European club.' 
Alves signed for Barcelona from Sevilla for £25.5million in 2008 and has 247 appearances in La Liga to his name. He's won La Liga six times and the Champions League three time.

Rodriguez wants to leave Madrid. Wouldn't he be a nice option? 

Yeah that guy who still lives under the fame of the 6 goals he scored 2 years ago.

I will offer them 65 million just so they will take Oscar off this club

Arsenal Prioritise Henrikh Mkhitaryan Over Riyah Mahrez

Wtf has gotten into arsenal this summer? Looks like missing out on the title to Leicester City done woke them up a bit. I'll never view them as title contenders until the day I see them lift the damn trophy again, but it must be said they've been crazy active this summer. Xhaka, Ricardo Rodriguez (all but finalized), and now Vary and Mkhitaryan are their rumoured next targets. Sheesh.. Mkhitaryan would be a perfect fit for Arsenal in that RM role. Hope it doesn't happen.

Guys, what about Berardi? He is very good player,  only 21 years old, have a ton of potential and is also Italian. I'm surprised that we are not yet linked with him.

He's nailed on for Juventus mate. Yeah I started wathing extended highlights of him, and he looks a fantastic prospect, but Juve are all over him. 

Wish he would have gone to Inter Milan tbh :(

The window isn't even officially open yet. It's not like the club have been completely quiet. There's substantial rumors every week. Use June to continue those talks and get arrangements in place and then sign them when the window opens. The only time we should be worried is if we have no signings halfway through July.

regarding our striker situation: so we have costa, yet we are heavily rumored for both lukaku and morata... I would love to have all three but being realistic, unless we play with two strikers, there won't be enough minutes for all three. That being said, I think we will end up with 2 out of those 3 and I'm having trouble deciding who would be my preferred two... I would keep Costa for sure but I'm not sure who I'd rather have between Lukaku and Morata. If we are truly in for them, it's a nice problem to have
