Transfer targets ongoing

Just thought, with this ESL proposition, could we potentially be in a better position to hold on to our players for the next 2-3 years if the ‘top clubs’ face penalties/suspensions etc?

Fully agree Traore has stalled, I would like to see your opinion on if you think he offers something different to anything else we have though? I feel Traore will always occupy 2 defenders because of his speed and ability to go past a player. Leaving potentially more space for Barnes, Vardy, Kelechi and Maddison. For 30 million I don't think the fee is that bad. Maybe a change could be good for him. Roughly 1 year ago he was being talked about for double the figure due to his performances. Potentially could sell Perez and Hamza (not due to last weekend party) just on players who we can likely improve as squad players for 20-25 million for them both. Then Traore maybe for 5 million more. I think with Traore there is a player who could be useful option for our team.  

100%, that's what frustrates me watching Traore. He's strong, players bounce of him and he can run with the ball which draws players towards him. That bit is great. But it doesn't mean anything unless something comes of it. I don't really mean scoring goals either. It's that final link up. Having players in space created by Traore doesn't mean much if he can't get the ball to them. If BR felt he could push him onto the next level consistently I'd take him in a heartbeat. He'd bully defenders, be a nightmare to play against, have that speed of Vardy to harry and panic the opposition. But I get the sense Nuno is a pretty good coach (I don't follow Wolves enough to know if that's actually true) so I suspect this is Traore's level. Which is fine, just not for us.

So if Kane wants to secure that goal scoring record in the PL and play for England, what's the chances we could buy him from Spurs? If he puts in a transfer request and demands a move no matter the price.

You need intelligence at the top level and Traore lacks the guile to provide those crucial final balls.

Imagine if their were grounds for the top 6 players to abandon their contracts and become free agents and a bunch of them took up the option....

 

Could fill our boots.

Wow, our first albino player.

 

(Fingers crossed this isn't an offensive word to the skin pigmentally challenged as well as potential accusations of racism)

 

Information Bulletin – What Do You Call Me?

For many people the term “albino” brings to mind images of a person or animal with a pale complexion and pink eyes. The term “albinism,” by contrast, is less commonplace or recognizable to people who may not know a person with the condition. We all know that words can be powerful, so how do you say that someone is an albino without being disrespectful?

 

Words Can Hurt or Heal

In the albinism community, opinions vary on the use of the word albino. While some find it extraordinarily offensive, others feel the label carries neutral or even empowering connotations. Many people with albinism agree that their feelings depend on the context or intent in which the word is used. The term can be derogatory when said mockingly or with malice, or it can be used innocently by someone who means no offense or is just curious.

Some people with albinism grew up in families or communities that used the word albino often and learned at an early age that there was no shame or negativity in referring to themselves as such. Others may have found that they were only called albino when they were being teased. Some describe their negative association with the word as being as offensive as a racial slur.

Some children and adults with albinism may use the term albino proudly and may feel empowered by “taking back” a once offensive word. By showing the world that they are comfortable calling themselves a word they once found hurtful or derogatory, the word “albino” loses all the power and shock value that it once claimed. By taking personal ownership of one’s condition, many people with albinism find that words like albino can no longer hurt them. Of course this is a very personal decision, and not all people with albinism feel comfortable using or hearing the term.

Put the Person First

Although there are many people with albinism who are at peace with the term albino, when dealing with any condition, it is best to put the person first. For instance, say, “a person with albinism” rather than “an albino” or “an albino person.” The rationale for this person-centered language is to do just that: put the person ahead of the condition. When a person is referred to as an albino, he or she is essentially being reduced to and defined by nothing more than their condition. It’s as though the world looks at that person and sees only the condition of albinism. In this way, it can feel like a dehumanizing label.

To most in the albinism community, the term “person with albinism” will always be a kinder, gentler, less shocking term. Regardless of the context, the word albino can sometimes be an ugly, jolting word to many, especially when heard unexpectedly. If you’re ever unsure, just ask. Every person with albinism will have personal experiences and opinions about the label. As one NOAH member said, “I may be an albino, but above all else, I am a person. I just happen to have the condition of albinism.”

Thank you for that informative piece. Faux pas with language on this forum happen all the time.I am sure that no offence was implied at all.Leicester is a beacon of a multicultural, multi faith liberal city. That is one thing as a native of this city I am proud of. The vast majority of the time that is represented on this forum. We sometimes fall out over football though.

Bit of a pipe dream but if we persist with a back 3 or one of the centre halves go and we get UCL next season, could Jerome Boateng be an option on a free? 
 

Imagine his wages would be a stumbling block but he’s lived in England previously and speaks the language, would be great having another Evans like presence at the back as our Jonny has shown signs of fatigue and a few individual errors this season due to our over dependence on him to bring calm to the back line.

Agree with this. One thing also though is I think Jimenez being out has affected Traore's effectiveness if that makes sense. Wolves plan A for so long was getting Traore to the by line and for him to stand it up to Jimenez.

€40mill is a lot for a player who hasn't had the best year or so. 

Yeah I've seen a fair bit of him this season and he's been very poor. Soyuncu and little Wes already far better players than him from what I've saw.

Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United are all reportedly interested in signing Leicester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho this coming summer.
According to a report by Spanish outlet Fichajes, Kelechi Iheanacho is starting to become a hot property in the market ahead of the summer transfer window. The 24-year-old Leicester City striker is being courted by the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United.

Iheanacho joined Leicester City from Manchester City in the summer of 2017 after failing to establish a foothold in the Citizens’ first-team setup due to the presence of Sergio Aguero. At the King Power Stadium, the Nigerian international did not make the best of starts, but has finally started to grow into a key figure for the former Premier League champions.

"rich teams worry that we aren't just going to go away after Jamie Vardy becomes ineffective, so try to buy our players to disrupt us".....

After the way they've behaved we should either treble our fees or refuse to ever deal with them again.

....Boateng has a big error in him and i have little faith in him!!!

If we need to have three at the back then Vestergaard is an option. He is a steading influence and can be lethal with his long range passing, a much better option.
