Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog.
In this episode, we begin with the long-awaited signing of Declan Rice whose move to Arsenal was confirmed over the weekend. We discuss the importance of the player and getting this deal done, the strategy of Mikel Arteta and Edu and the backing of the board/owners, the player himself, the size of the fee and what he’s going to bring to the team. We also chat about the signing of Jurrien Timber, and the size of the squad as it stands, before answering listener questions about modern central defenders, which new signing faces the most pressure, the importance (or otherwise) of the Community Shield, mental health in football, and lots more.

Remember, you can send us questions via which we’ll try and get to each week. Send them to either @arseblog or @Gunnerblog (or both) using the hashtag #arsecastextra. Best to send them Monday morning so they get noticed more easily.
