Summer 2018 Transfer Kitty

Sadly I expect Mahrez to go, so add 75M+ to the kitty. I think we will sign a RB, an experienced CB (Dragovic or Evans) and 2 Riyad type players (players that can play on the wing or the forward three). We've been linked with Gudmondsson of Burnley, Rafa Silva of Benfica, Andros Townsend and Thorgen Hazard, so expect those names will come up again the summer. If Southampton get relegated (which I don't think will happen), then I expect us to sign a number of their players, wih Tadic, Redmond and Boufal all possibilities.

 

If we do lose Mahrez, I would like us to go for Leon Bailey of Leverkusen, who used to play with Ndidi and who Wes Morgan knows very well from the Jamaican national team. But he is playing really well and they look like qualifying for the Champions League, so he might not be realistic target.

If Southampton go down I’d love us to go for Ward-Prowse. Would imagine Liverpool would get him though

Every time I’ve watched Newcastle on tv, Jonjo Shelvey has been outstanding. Passing is superb, makes tackles, tracks back. Would like us to go for him.

The highlighted his poor fitness and concentration levels on MOTD the other week, it showed him standing around on the edge of the penalty area doing nothing whilst the opposition scored, if those 2 aspects of his game can be sorted he’d make a great player.

Maybe Leon Bailey isn’t as unrealistic as people first thought, he’s become eligible to play for England. Therefore may fancy his chances in the premier league to enhance his reputation. Be a great replacement IF Mahrez does go.

 

With regards to what I think we need:

 

CB - Mawson/Dragovic

RB - Trippier

Winger - Leon Bailey 

No. 10 - Hazard

Striker - Gayle (I think we need someone who has like for like attributes to Vardy)

Leon Bailey doesn't qualify to play for England I'm afraid.

Isn’t he already a full international with Jamaica?

Ah, fair enough, didn’t see that. Maybe he needs a fresh start with a team going places !? Newcastle must be such a frustrating team to play for. They have great support & fanbase, but have poor owners with no ambition other than survival and that’s difficult when they don’t spend any money

hasn't made an appearance yet or atleast a competitive one. Weirdly even Usain Bolt said it wouldn't be good for Leon Bailey's development to play for Jamaica

We should look at Shaw .. mourinho looks like he doesn't rate him..

 

for me I would be happy if we get Shaw, Trippier and Loftus-Cheek

but sadly there is no player can replace Mahrez' quality.

Would love us to pair ndidi with watford's doucoure. Think that midfield pair would give us the base to really push up the league.

 

I want a new rb, rw and lw if mahrez goes. With the wingers I want us to look above our station. Look at players like malcolm or leon Bailey. Out of our league on paper but sometimes the big clubs don't bid despite the noise and an opening might exist to bring them to England. If the big clubs do go in for them at that point we can move for more  realistic targets. I just worry that we really need more than just a decent quality winger to have any hope of not dropping 20 points just by losing Mahrez.

 

Leon Bailey is at a similar sized club to our's so he'll probably move on to bigger things or stay where he is.

 

I like the premise of your post though. You hear of players in South America that are linked with Real Madrid or Barcelona continually that never quite get their move. As one of the top 20/25 richest clubs in the world playing in the most high profile league in the world I'm sure we could get almost any player in South America providing they didn't have a better option than us. I'm all for signing the best young players on that continent as even if we only had them for a year or two and sold them on at a profit.

 

The same with buying young players at smaller clubs and inferior leagues on the continent. We were linked with Leon Bailey before he went to Leverkusen but never made a move for him. 

 

Signing the best young players in the world that you can would always be my strategy if you couple it with intensive scouting. You're always likely to have as many hits as misses but there's a good chance you can still get your money back with the misses.

Problem with South American young players is work permits. The quality of Brazil/Argentina means anyone were likely to be after will have no chance of senior international football to meet work permit criteria. I believe rules are more lenient in la Liga and serie A. 

 

Incidentally we could have the same issue signing EU players post-Brexit too

Nahhhhhhh Mrs May is fighting for a trade agreement. We will be able to sign who we want. We will just have to pay ten times more is all.

Would anyone take Shaw? With the possibility of Fuchs leaving for America in the summer, is Chilwell up to the task of being a starter week I week out?

I'm not sure if I would, is it three or four managers in a row have questioned his work ethic now?

Shelve that idea. Bloke looks like Voldemort and is clearly a massive endbell

Footballers are so detached from the fans, can’t think of many I’d want to share a pint with. As long as they are decent players, who cares that much what they’re like ? We all love Vardy, as do l, but he gets plenty of abuse and hatred sent his way from opposing fans.

Would like to see us try and go for Lewis Dunk at CB, have been impressed with him each time I have watched Brighton, which admittedly hasn't been that often.

 

Seems he has the most number of blocks in the league this season so not afraid to put himself in the way, a bit like Wes in that regard but infinitely better on the ball from what I can remember.

 

Does seem to love an own goal though but think this is a byproduct of him throwing himself in the way of shots, and with Brighton almost guaranteed to stay up they won't want to sell so he wouldn't be cheap.

Lascelles is better imo, and we could easily bring him in.
