Aarons has signed until 2024 though. Sessegnon only had one year left when we signed him. If Aarons has a good season and Norwich doesn’t get relegated, I can see him go for the same amount of money as Wan Bissaka.
If anything I think it’s strange that they sold him this late, even if it was for decent money. Okay, he may not be the best player in the world but at least he would have given Arsenal som decent depth. Now it feels like they really lack that behind Aubameyang, Lacazette and Pepe.
Were we ever that close to Isco though? We may have been interested but I think we all knew it wasn’t going to happen. In this case we had agreed with both Juventus and Dybala and it looked like it was actually happening. That’s why this really hurts.

Nope, that’s why I said it’s not ALL about signing new players. Of course you have to strengthen the squad when needed. Should have been clearer with that in my first post. I think my point was just that you can make the team better by improve current players as well, but yes you need to...
I wonder how keen Toby is to leave this summer himself? Apart from Roma there hasn’t been mant rumours at all. It really baffles me that United are about to splash £70-90m on Maguire (or whatever it is) om Maguire when this guy is available for £25m
