Wesley Fofana: Signs For LCFC

Effectively this confirms that Brodgers has thrown in the towel with Benkovic, either because he doesn't think he's up to it or because he's too injury-prone to be relied upon as backup for a busy season. 

 

Which effectively means we've got to now chalk him up as a failed signing. Arguably worse that Slimani really, when you consider we got more games out of him, although obviously his price tag was bigger as well. 

 

Oh well. Can't win them all I suppose. 

 

 

In all honesty, I don't think this signing confirms that. It was confirmed way before already. Youngsters came on ahead of him in friendlies.

Looks a lively character aswell, the videos from the first couple of games of St.Ettiene's season he was leading celebrations in the changing room. Our French speaking continent of Tielemans, Praet, Mendy & Castagne should help him settle in quickly.

 

Still none the wiser whether he speaks English. Saw him quoted somewhere but didn't know if it was a translation.

 

Let's hope his big ears are a sign of a coming Trophy!

Good signing. How we've turned this transfer window around and our first few results, dare I say things are looking positive at the moment.

I don’t think the transfer window was ever in danger other than in the minds of some impatient fans. We took our time and got the right people in.

Very excited with this piece of business. He's exceptionally highly rated, has a lot of desirable attributes - pace, aerial ability, ball playing ability, aggressive and strong in the tackle - and comes into the squad to learn from two excellent starting CB's and contribute across a larger fixture list. He greatly strengthens our CB options as well, as we go immediately from relying on Morgan, Benkovic and his injury challenges and utility players like Amartey and Ndidi to have one of the best young CB's in Europe to call upon. If Sky are accurate too, then the 'up to 30mil fee' is much lower than what was reported at the start of the week which is a winner.

 

Castange, Under and Fofana - outstanding window so far. :scarf:

Plus..Maddison, Amartey & Mendy ..extensions....

Puels  comments re playing poker to get the best price are exactly what we all knew was going on. It was always going to happen it was just haggling. TBF they played us quite well, and saved face with their fans by making it look like they rinsed us. Seems from some reports that we didn’t pay as much as was claimed (bit like the YT deal). Would not be surprised if we agreed to go along with it to smooth the process and possibly pave the way for a loan deal for Benkovic or other future deals.
