Transfer targets 2020/21

Recommended Posts

It's based on watching a grand total of 2 games in the Copa Libertadores but we'd do well to sign Soteldo or Marinho from Santos. Ran the show last night against Boca and if they want a pathway in to Europe we'd be a great fit for them. 

 

Of course, it wouldn't surprise me if clubs like Barca, Real, Bayern, Liverpool etc have eyes on them or deals lined up for such youngsters from South America. 

Anyone who loves a bit of flair and skill in the side (like Mahrez) would be frothing seeing these 2...

Milik is a classic West ham type signing to me. Go for a cheaper option but pay the player big bucks. 

 

He shows small glimpses of why he's rated but spends too much time injured and struggles to adapt the premier League and eventually ends up stinking up the club because patience soon wears thin. 

 

That's based on little knowledge of the player, but more knowing west ham need a striker

I don't generally buy the myth that you have to be a massive unit to play in the Prem but Soteldo comes pretty close to being the smallest player I've ever seen lol

 

He makes Bernard and Giovinco look like heavyweight boxers.

Love child of Xherdan Shaqiri and Ezgjan Alioski

 

Agree he looks quality even if he is Ant Mans little brother

Rodgers in the pre match basically said if there was a player available that could improve us he think the ownership would back us but ge expects it to be quiet.

 

I still think we'll see a player in but I'm probably being hopeful.

Said he expects it to be pretty quiet, just over two week left, we won’t be signing anyone

Kaio Jorge is the one, available for dirt cheap as refusing to sign a new deal

Was it Jorge that missed the absolute sitter one on one at the end?

I didn't watch the game, he's just come up very highly on my stats I use and then delved a little deeper and it's a no brainer that we should go for him.

I think we'll get one signing in, especially now we've got Slimani off the books.

 

Maybe someone on loan in the middle of the park?

Edouard I reckon and KDH back from Luton.

Edouard surely at no more than £20m will be worth the money in this market - you can’t get a championship striker for that fee nowadays! 

I'm guessing the market will have dipped a bit after this Covid-19 induced football recession.

...based on watching the obligatory Youtube videos...I would only look to pick up Marinho!!!

Fast feet and looks very busy, always expecting something special when he is in possession, but he likes to go down a lot, and that's without being touched.

  With the position he gets himself into, I would expect a lot more goals, shooting across the keeper coming in from the right with his left foot he really needs to start the ball much wider of the goal, he has the skills, a lot of poor goal keeping there. I really think he believes he is the new Roberto Carlos, he can hit them but he tends to go for power instead of accuracy but when he gets it right he is worth the entrance fee.

Marinho is in his 30's.

...@StanSP suggested we could do well to pick him or Soteldo up!!!

My response was having reviewed both, I chose the one player I felt would be beneficial and delight our supporters.

Marinho will be 31 in May so perhaps going by our recruitment strategy it is not likely he would end up here.

Watched the game also. Marinho is the one of the two most likely to make it in the EPL I'd say, Soteldo looks like he may struggle physically, a bit like Bernard in that sense.

He nearly killed the Boca keeper with a free kick last night lol

Milik will be expecting a large chunk for signing on fee and big wages, plus coming from Napoli I suspect he will think he's doing us a favour in being here. We don't tend to fare too well with these types of signings and given the debatable recent form, it's a no from me.

 

Edouard makes more sense as he will (presumably) want to come to Leicester to step up his career, and we have an opportunity to improve a young player. That said, and I will be honest, I haven't seen much of him, but what I have seen... doesn't make me jump out of my seat. I'm not expecting him to get 20+ goals a season, but I am unsure if he will be given the opportunities needed to make it worthwhile him being here.

What does a 20 goal a season EPL striker cost nowadays though? Your talking 50-60m, probably more. Leicester simply aren't and won't be in the market for those guys. Ings is the only real outlier I can see in terms of this in recent history.

 

Edouard of course isn't going to be an off the shelf 20 goal a season EPL striker, you'd be signing potential in the hope you can develop him into one.

 

I obviously have an inherent bias but for £15m quid or whatever I don't think there's going to be much better value around in this window than that. I doubt many French under 21 attackers tend to go for less than that these days.

For 15, I'd be all over it but for the 30 number being bandied about.... no chance.
