  1. Maguire £75m (less Hull 15%), £63.75m should do the trick
  2. Lobotka wouldn’t surprise me, Mladen Sormaz - Head of Analytics, raves about him (rightly so) and we were rumoured to have show an interest in Jan. Ndidi, Tielemens, Hamza and Lobotka means you’re all set for every competition, with the ability to rotate with low drop off.

    Eriksen hasn't signed an extension (despite multiple offers from Spurs) and his contract runs out in 2020, if he stalls, they'll have to sell him this summer for £90m+, otherwise they risk a Ramsey/Sanchez situation. I wouldn't discount them yet.

    This is bad. Nixon is very much on the ball with comings and goings (Maddison, Rodgers, Mahrez he called months ahead of time).

    To get Monaco to sell him to us now, it would take close to £45m IMO, they'd also want Silva at a cut price being 30 yrs old - they'll probably value him at £12/13m. So we're looking at paying a difference of around £32m. I'd pay it, there is very little chance we'd find a player of his quality and age, that clearly fits into our system and has adapted already to the physicality of the PL. Plus securing him early, allows us to focus on a getting a striker, winger (preferably Daniel James) and LB to replace Fuchs if he leaves.
  6. He’s on £80k/wk, after tax would be roughly £3.72m. Still, not too shabby.
  7. The £6.2m he’s earnt with Leicester, softens the blow a tad.
  8. I still remember going to Swansea (in the Championship) we were completely dominated and passed off the park. We couldn’t get the ball off them. He’ll get us playing good football, but at a faster tempo.
  9. Got his team of average players (bar Billing and Mooy) to press better than Liverpool, Man City and Spurs. It’s a yes from me. We’ve got the players to suit to genenpress - Vardy, Ndidi, Mendy, Ricardo, Albrighton, Hamza even Ghezzal has good pressure rates. And I’m sure Barnes will be fine with it, as he’s become more physical in his game at WBA. Vardy would thrive in that system, and Wagner is a big fan of his.
  10. Ted who runs Statsbomb is very sharp, so much so PSG are using him atm.
  11. Underated midfield passer, would increase ball security and allow the ball to move quicker in midfield. Would improve us IMO. https://statsbomb.com/2017/06/passing-percentages-are-mostly-useless-quantifying-passing-ability/
  12. He’s a winger. Maddison and Barnes are better suited attacking centrally.
  13. As @Abrasive fox mentioned recently we are scouting Luka Jovic, he’d be an incredible signing only 20 but potent in the Bundesliga. Also would also give Vardy some much needed competition. However most top sides especially Bayern Munich will be all over him. Leandro Paredes - desperately wanted him when I watched a number of games at Roma (and there were rumours Leicester were close to bidding), a defensive midfielder who’s technical very able and can play box-box (11 assists already this season for Zenit). Would have to pay close to £30m and £80/90k/wk. Let Ndidi and Mendy fight it out to be his midfield partner. Nakajima - links recently, has been one of the most creative prospects in the last two seasons in Liga NOS, would provide a lot more creativity then Gray and Albrighton. A trusted scout I know Tiago Estavao has been beating his drum since last season. 27 goal contributions in the last 38 league games. Carries risk, as we know it’s a big difference between Liga NOS and PL, but for under £18m he’s worth it. Clyne - I’d definitely take him for around £15m, Big Dan will be out for a long while and Ricardo is good to have as an option playing both FB and Winger (he started his career as a winger). Recall Harvey Barnes, we’re lacking match winners off the bench and Harvey is arguably in the top 3 performing players in the Championship this season. I’d consider selling Gray for £25m +, he’s still very low on chances created per 90 (0.7), Ndidi has created more (0.9 per 90), which says a lot. Great dribbler but we’re still waiting for his decision making to improve. Also let King and possibly James go (unless James can prove his agility/fitness after multiple surgeries). Silva also doesn’t seem to have the same agility since his ACL at Sporting, he’s getting outpaced playing in a 2 man mid, hence Puel has been cautious. A real shame but I’d let him go if the price was around £14/15m.
