Annoyingly I think this lad is destined to be phenomenal and if we miss out then it'll sting. Pay £33m and flick Claude the bird.

Agree. Whilst we dont know exactly what funds are available for transfers, if we have to pay a little bit over the odds a bit to get him then i would in this case, it looks like he is a huge talent.

 

Feels like one where we shouldn't quibble over a few million, especially given his profile is a bit different to the other centre halves we've been linked with.

I know AC Milan have enquired but if he's that good doesn't it seem strange that half of Europe isn't after him, especially now that our cover has been blown long ago?

Why didn't half of Europe go for Soyuncu after being linked? Why didn't they go for Ricardo too? Leipzig wanted him in January and they know a high level prospect when they see one, been priced out of a move already though as they don't pay more than £15-20m for players.

I know SFE talks out his arse but a player exchange has been mentioned. I think Diabate is more likely though.

Spen ****ing money

he will be French squad starter  in a year 

Stiff competition mind. Aymeric Laporte, now 26 and approaching his prime, signed for Man City for £57m in 2018,  still not won a senior cap for France.

 

That said, I really want us to sign this guy. Looks absolutely top class.

They can take their pick of Ghezzal, Diabate, Slimani, Amartey, James, Benkovic and Gray

It's easy to forget Diabate, not once has he been linked with a move away this summer and is not part of the first team plans.

That is astounding, I think injuries have occurred at the time he was about to be picked for them though.

 Have the lot and we'll throw in £10m.

 

Would solve a lot of problems. :D

 

On a serious note Puel was actually a big fan of Gray, James, Diabate and Ghezzal.

I wouldn’t want to let go of either Gray or Benkovic. We have far too many games to play this season, we don’t need to weaken the squad further

Surely only Gray, Amartey or Benkovic would be of interest but would be immense to get Ghezzal gone. Was Puel's fault we got him in the first place.

Doesn't Diabate have some connection to Puel's son?

They both played for the same team. it was Puel's son that bought Puel's attention to him

Benkovic has been here two years and still to make an impression mainly because his legs are made out of chipsticks.

 

Gray is in the last nine months of his contract and didn't even make the bench against West Brom. I'm more than happy to let squad players go who struggle to make the bench at the best of times.

Well Ghezzal and Diabate were brought in at Puel's request, they weren't recruitment team picks.

 

Maybe after seeing both play close up he has re-evaluated his opinion but he also may have an affinity to them.
