Any idea the sorta of cash being talked about for Brooks? If he could re-capture his pre injury form he’d be a very good signing.

I haven't saw anything quoted but I would imagine it being somewhere between £25-£30m.

I spoke to my Sheffield Utd supporting mate about him as I was A) Confused about why they wouldn't want him back and B) wondered how on earth he ever worked in Wilders system.

 

Essentially, he was pretty much always an impact sub and played as a number 10/false 9 when he came on, as part of their front two.

 

Whilst he showed flashes of brilliance no one at Sheff Utd was that devastated about him leaving. I guess it helped that they didn't particularly need wingers. 

 

Of his 30 appearances in the Champ before leaving for Bournemouth, 20 were as a sub.

 

Whilst he was fairly impressive first season for Bournemouth, i'm just not sure I understand why everyone is so desperate for this to happen?

Agree with this, I think some people need to temper their expectations of Brooks. We had everyone screaming for Bowen until people started watching him play for Hull and realised he’s not that quick, the clamour for Brooks seems a similar scenario. 
 

I’m not opposed to us signing him, the boy has some skills and potential, but I wouldn’t say he’s got more quality than Pérez or Barnes to be honest, he’s just a different type of player.

Got an update on this last night. 

Basically he wants to be with a prem team to make sure of his place at the euros next year. He thinks all the speculation is funny because he's not had contact from anyone other than Palace and he's not keen on going there... 

He would jump at a move to Leicester, he's friendly with a couple of our players but nothing has been said on or off the record. 

 

Makes you wonder what players agents do doesn't it? Not very proactive.... 

Bloody agents, why aren't they stirring up interest? WE NEED MORE AGENTS!

Totally agree with all of that, although I think across the many attributes we haven't covered, Chilwell comes out on top more often. Obviously half a decades experience will do that!

 

I hope we can hold on to them both. They'd be fantastic assets to have for the long term, and I hope we don't let Chilwell go easily.

As a Leicester fan, I feel obliged to hopefully read the transfer thread.  This shows that it is even more of a waste of time than I thought.

 

I have read just read two pages on Benrahma who there has been no real speculation about for weeks.

The joys of being a football fan during the transfer window! Embrace it you will be sad when it’s gone and we’ve got nothing to talk about :scarf:

The point is that surely as his agent should be going out to find him a move to wherever he wants to go. Plus the agent would make his cut out of any move... 

 

Maybe I'll ask if I can take over, seems like money for nothing to me.

Sure. He might just be a canny soul and has been told what to say (or not say). It's hard to imagine his agent isn't doing anything...

True. The agent bit was tongue in cheek really. Anyway, I'm more excited about the guy from Barcelona even though I know nothing about him!
