I was offered Javier Pastore for £10.25 million. And he looks like a great player for his age. I've got lots of people that play his position so my question is, should I leave Pastore and stick with the 5 AMC I have got or sell some of my current players.
I'm in 2011, on my 1st season playing as Arsenal. I can play a number of them as Inside Forward on the wings.

Here are some screenshots of Pastore and the players that play in his position:

I play a 4-2-3-1. Midfielders are usually Ball Winning CM and Deep lying playmaker/box to box midfielder.
On the left I usually put someone Inside Forward - Support and in the center Adv. Playmaker, and on the left I have Walcott as a winger.

I probably would offload Rosicky but I won't get much for him. I'd make a good loss of about 7 million.

Loan out Wilshere
No one wants my Vela or Wilshere but then again Wilshere is amazing on the right wing so him and Walcott rotate because the others are more for the left wing.
Nasri however doesn't perform as well as Arshavin so I don't know if I should get rid of Nasri.

u should buy pastore cause he is great as a AMC. and you should sell rosicky. i have a game with palermo and pastore match rating in the last seazon was 7.8, so he is very good. so i advise you to buy it, and real quick ;))

How much wage is he on? Because I've heard he asks for something like 340k a week.

Pastore is quality player, but in arsenal he will be backup for fabregas

I brought a player called Barnetta who performs decent on the left wing so Vela hardly plays for me. RVP in Advanced Forward scored 26 in 29 for me so he's staying put while Bendtner can wait his time.

GK: Brad Friedel - I was being stingy and didn't want to spend much but now I'm screwed since Almunia was sold and Fabianski is out with a Viral problem for 7 months so I have to put Vito Manone in goal for the champions league since friedel isn't registered
DL: Clichy
DR: Sagna
DC: Koscielny, Squillaci, Vermaelen, Djourou
CM: Ball Winning - Song, Diarra (loan from r.madrid)
CM: Box to box ( Ramsey or fabregas)
AML: Inside forward support - Barnetta
AMC: Adv Playmaker: Arshavin, Nasri, Fabregas, Rosicky
AMR: Walcott and Wilshere and Park G Sung inside forward
ST: RVP - Advanced Forward

So as you can see I have 4 players on the AMC position and I only need 3 including fabregas.

I suppose I'll get rid of Rosicky and Arshavin but Arshavin performs extremely well for me so I'm not sure.

Hazard is another Attacking Mid so I don't think I'll have room for him.
And yes, I have Chamkah, Vela, Bendtner all still on the bench. Chamakh plays while RVP needs a break so my striker position is great.

Do you play Nasri on the left wing? Does he perform?
I'm thinking, sell rosicky and shift nasri on the left with Barnetta and keep Arshavin and Pastore(when I get him) in the center. And then just keep Fabregas in the CM postion.

Sell Rosicky. Play Arshavin and Nasri on the wings. Sign Pastore. Play Wilshere in the odd amount of games that you should win easily and play Cesc in CM when you don't play Wilshere, then play Pastore in AMC.

Easy.

I have Barnetta already playing on the Left wing and Nasri and Arshavin never perform when playing there.
