Or a player who's contract is soon up. I'm scouring my lists for the right man.

I’d love to see a list, it doesn’t have to go into detail but would be very interesting who’d fit the Tielemans-esque loan or the 6 month lefts criteria.

Dennis will be fit in April.  I’m not sure we want to commit to another player in his position long term. 

I think he still wants one more and if that player can also play out wide or is more of a box to box midfielder that is a danger going forward then Choudhury will be off. I think the signing will be short term if we don't get one of our main targets like we had to do with Bennett.

Would absolutely love Amine Harit here, schalke are in shambles but when he's  on his day, he's excellent. Can play as a cam and LW. Been unfairly blamed at schalke and was even frozen out there. Bit of moroccan bias from my behalf but genuinely would be good, wouldn't cost too much either

Brais Mendez - we wanted him 2 years ago when he burst on the scene at Celta. Scored on his debut for Spain and then a mixture of injury and poor form last season has led to him being somewhat forgotten. Celta are exactly the sort of team we could target during the pandemic.

 

Kang-In Lee - another left footed attacking midfielder like Mendes who could play as an 8, 10 or even a right winger which helps us with our issues of finding along term solution for that position. 

 

Otavio - the obvious choice given we've been linked with him and his contract is up in the summer. Assists machine and very much fits the style of play. My number one pick.

 

Rodrigo De Paul - would cost a lot from Udinese but a loan with an obligation to buy could be a legitimate option and he was linked with us last summer. 

 

Suat Serdar - was unreal last season for Schalke. They are the bins this season and we ought to pick them off by taking him on loan with an obligation to buy in the summer. Classy player whos strong (box to box) and who scores goals too.

 

Ozan Tufan - like Serdar he is more of a box to box player than my first few suggestions but he'd be brilliant here. Goals, assists and a bastard.

 

Puig - could we get Barca to let us have him? Talk last summer was they would sell him outright, but a loan probably more likely if available.

 

Mohammed Ihattaren - PSV wonderkid who I think is gettable due to the sheer number of other attack minded players they have. Would cost a fee that's a bit of a punt (£20-25m) but is the sort of player we'd go for.

 

Koopmeiners - started out as a defensive midfielder for AZ but he has become so influential in midfield he can play further forward. Loves a goal 

 

De Ketelaere and Verschaeren both very talented Belgian attacking midfielders, for that reason alone we should be in for them.

 

Jesper Lindstrom - the new transfer rules might make this one difficult but he is the heir to Christan Eriksen's throne as Denmark's playmaker. He is my uncut diamond.

 

 

 

 

I’d love Koopmeiners here. Looks the dogs

Almost certainly off to Juve and has just been poached by Mino Raiola.

Does anyone think we would pay 150k (50%) if his club paid the other half for Eriksen?

No chance.

 

Ok let's pay someone who used to be good 150k Pw and disrupt 85% or more of the current playing squad.

 

It's a huge gamble to even consider him tbh

For a 4 month loan, I think the Club may consider this, if BR wants Eriksen here. £2.4m is not a huge sum to gamble on.

A loan signing isn't going to disrupt the squad especially for a player who was one of the best players in the PL and still only 29.

 

No one in the squad will moan if we pay 50% of his wages and gives us a better opportunity to win silverware or top four.

Is he currently better than maddison?

No for that reason I wouldnt get someone on loan for 150k its a huge gamble.

 

Don't get me wrong he used to be a good player but getting a player in for 150k who has hardly played is a huge risk financially.

 

The current team we have is capable of getting top 4 if anything we need a striker

Folarin Balogun looks to be leaving Arsenal in the summer- worth getting him in now and paying a small fee? Young player but could do a job.

Apparently he has received offers from over 20 clubs, so it wouldn't surprise me if we were one of the clubs that were in for him. But I doubt our offer is the most lucrative so he'll probably go elsewhere. Leipizg seem to be the favourites and to be fair to them, they have a great track record of developing young players too.

 

I don't think he leaves this window though and regardless he's the sort you need to introduce into the team over time rather than straight away. Looks a real prospect though and would expect him to have a decent or maybe even great career.

Another player we've been linked with in the past who fits the bill in the ACM role would be Eljif Elmas from Napoli. I think they'd be open to a move, he's not played all that much for them this season.

Right, I've found our Tielemans back up. Jean Pyerre from Gremio. Would likely get a work permit given he's played the South American equivalent of the Champions League this season. He oozes class and vision like Youri. Get him in.

....certainly good enough but who do we drop!!!

  That sort of talent is not for the bench and even with rotation  he will not be happy as he controls the team and the understanding of the players around him.

 Great ball control, picks a pass, terrific weight on the ball and looks effortless in what he does.

 Wrong place at the wrong time, if we did not have Tielemans it would be a no brainer.

 If he keeps getting better, he will be out of our price range and only if we should sell Tielemans, should we be contemplating bringing him in.
