As my thread was removed it seems, Joe Rodon at Swansea would be a good shout as a CB. Better prospect and value than Tarkowski. 

Been moved to here Page 151 as it falls under this category rather than us being linked.

So Rodgers said yesterday his initial aim was five signings - I would imagine they were CB, FB, MF, RW, CF.

 

He's got two of those (FB, RW) and will get a CB. He said the other night he doesn't think they'll get a CF due to lack of resources.

 

I think a midfielder would've either been a defensive midfielder or cover for Maddison. Mendy's contract means the first won't happen, and then an attacking player seems unlikely unless a free/loan to allow KDH to go out.

 

It gives a squad of:

GK (3): Schmeichel, Ward, Jakupovic

FB (4): Ricardo, Castagne, Justin, Fuchs, (Thomas)

CB (4): Evans, Soyuncu, CB, Morgan

MF (7): Ndidi, Mendy, Choudhury, Tielemans, Praet, Maddison, Dewsbury-Hall

WI (4): Barnes, Under, Gray, Albrighton

FW (3): Vardy, Iheanacho, Perez

 

That bunch can all be registered in the Premier League, with only one player missing out of the Europa League squad - now likely to be Ndidi who will surely miss all six EL games (last matchday is in 11 weeks on 10 December). They may look to keep hold of Knight as additional cover given he can fill that spare slot and provide versatility at RB/CB/DM. It's worth noting that if Fofana signs, they can name an additional senior player for the Premier League (such as Amartey or James), but not for the Europa League.

 

I would think if Gray goes they might go for another forward player late in the window, either an additional winger or striker.

 

It's worth remembering that our deadline is very much October 5. We can sign EFL players until October 16, but they can't play in the Europa League until after Christmas so the club are very unlikely to do that.

I don't think Mendy means we are now only looking to have made 4signings this window, which is basically 3 if he's correct on not having enough for another forward. These quotes from him are very recent so it would appear we are innthe market for a CB and at least one more midfielder/forward.

So @Muzzy_Larsson, what’s the latest on Callum McGregor? 
Thought we’d be in for him this window as we need a fourth no.8. The fact that he can play 4 or 6 as well surely makes him even more attractive to us in Ndidi’s absence?

Not heard a peep mate since a few weeks ago when was told be a fairly reliable source a bid would go in. Obviously that hasn’t materialised.

If Wolves by Costa and have a front three of Traore , Costa and Jimenez they're really going to be dangerous. 

The back up of Podence, Silva and Neto is also quite ridiculous lol
