  1. I agree with those saying we won't clear out the list of usual 'dead wood' suspects but I think we might see a departure or two over the next week or so to keep us ticking over. I also think a lot of these players will likely seek a move abroad anyway, so providing something is in the pipeline for them, I think we'll invest a fair bit anyway before the window shuts in early August. In an ideal world I'd like to see: Outs: Benalouane, Ulloa, Musa, Kapustka, Slimani and one/two of Mendy, King, James and Amartey. Loan Outs: Barnes and Thomas (although I'd expect a few of the above to be joining them on loan deals) Ins: Another CB (Mina is an interesting shout), another CM/CAM option (I'd love Loftus-Cheek here) and a wide player. I also wouldn't be opposed to having another LWB come in using Fuchs as cover for CB in a back three and WB before his mooted departure to the USA.

    Riyad finally gone

    It was time. Wish him all the best for the rest of his career, good luck Riyad Refreshing to have moved on from the whole situation and now we have an opportunity to wisely invest and bring the squad on again.

    Bertrand traore

    I see the logic behind the concerns but one of the main things that reassures me on it is he also a decent track record of recording assists. Not Mahrez numbers but enough to suggest he is creative and capable of beating players with more than just pace. With Maddison in as well, they could be two new attacking options that compliment each other very well.

    Bertrand traore

    This. Traore has had a few impressive loan spells and has played first team football in France and the Netherlands where he delivered a good account of himself. Even when he came back to Chelsea and played for a period (season we won the league) he looked decent. On top of that he has experience playing in European competition and international level. I'd be very satisfied with this.

    Kasper - Chelsea and Roma. SSN

    Haven't Roma already signed like 9 or 10 players this summer? Sure I read that somewhere. Doubt they'd even have enough leftover to bring Kasper in before you even consider wages.

    Robert Huth to Aston Villa, Stoke?

    I think keeping Morgan on the books for another year is sensible. Assuming he'll be a 4th choice CB (Maguire, Evans, plus the rumours of a 3rd CB incoming), he's more than adequate to play that part in the squad. I'd remove the Captaincy from him a give that to a first team player but still keep involved in the squad. Changing the Captain and Morgan leaving altogether in the same window is quite a big change. Reckon he'll see out his contract, like you say, and then go on a free next season.

    Kasper Schmeichel

    It's nice to see Kasper having a decent tournament after a few ropey performances for us last term. He was unlucky to lose his clean sheet yesterday too, felt the VAR penalty was slightly harsh.

    James Maddison Confirmed

    Superb signing, very pleased to have got this over the line. Heard nothing but positive things about him so very excited to see the kid player. A 5 year deal for a top young English prospect, adds a lot of quality to our threat from set pieces, long range shots and he looks like the type of player who can beat an opponent and pick a key 'Mahrez style' pass. Love it. Interesting to see Puel credited again in the player's decision to join us. I've always liked the idea of what Puel is trying to do with our team and I hope the likes of Pereira, Evans and Maddison make playing this style of football all the more possible. Certainly some of the signings have been made to seem very intrinsic to this system which is reassuring. So far we've gone about our business quietly and efficiently and, on paper at least, have had a quality window so far. Welcome Maddison

    Slimani - Wants to leave

    Best chance with Slimani is either a Prem team taking a chance and stumping up the money, or a move to China or the Middle East where the fee and wages will satisfy both club and player. I think he'll be off, but of the players likely to leave - bar Mahrez - he is the one most likely to raise a high fee.

    Jack Wilshere - signs for WHU 3 year contract

    I think he'll go to Crystal Palace. Never lived up to the hype around him as youngster and has had major career setbacks but I still think he'd be a good signing for us, especially on a free transfer. Don't like the bloke at all though.

    Mahrez to Man City shock

    They were clearly connected. We didn't come out of that deal looking too pretty when Silva's registration was blocked.

    Mahrez to Man City shock

    Bar the Adrien Silva 14 seconds faff. That aside, Silva + Iborra + a few million change for Drinkwater was superb business.

    Mahrez to Man City shock

    In all likelihood it could help, but I think the boat has been missed with that. Mahrez's exit is surely too far gone. IF he did change his mind though, it would be an incredible boost. If the £50mil budget is true and we've all but spent that on Pereira, Evans and the impending arrival of Maddison, I still don't think we'd have to sell Mahrez to further add to the squad for the likes of Kvirkveila and any others. Shifting a lot of the players that were out on loan this season will still bring in a sizeable amount of money (looking at key assets like Slimani, Mendy etc.) which can be reinvested.

    Solomon Kvirkvelia

    Our best hope for moving Benalouane is that he shows some decent form in the World Cup, which in turn garners the attention of potential buying clubs and gives him the motivation to play more elsewhere.

    Roberto Inglese

    They can keep this Roberto Inglese chap and we'll take Arkadiusz Milik off their hands
