More transfer rumours

Good thing about Paqueta is that if we stump up the cash that OL is asking for (however much that is), I get the impression that he'd be happy to come. None of this dicking about with "waiting for PSG/Bayern/Milan to make their offers" rubbish (ok not Milan in this particular case lol).

Was on loan to Anderlecht from Bayern Munich last season. 16 goals in 38 games, currently 7 in 8 for Big Sven’s Dutch U21 gang. Also another possible argument to why Bayern wouldn’t be interested in Ekitike if they plan on bringing him through. Had an injury interrupted spell at Parma on loan. Ajax and Stuttgart linked but no suggestion on whether it’s a loan or permanent deal.

Aye, think because if Bruno (and probably Joelinton) if he came he would settle fast. A high pressing, creative and goal scoring attacking midfielder. He would be excellent here.

 

I guess priority order for what is left to cover is right winger, then striker and last another CM. I'd take Sarr for right wing, Cornet for striker or winger rotation and Paqueta. Would feel very happy with that.

Bloody hell, he's built like a brick shithouse. Imagine the aerial fret with him, Sven and Wood (lol) lining up for corners.

And Burn.

can’t see us getting him though- he wants to leave Bayern to get regular football, not play back up to Wilson. He’s linked with replacing Haller at Ajax or Kalajdzic at Stuttgart.

Currently at 31 senior players plus Anderson for next season. On the chopping block, for me:

Goalkeepers: one of Darlow and Gillespie (ideally Gillespie)
Defenders: three of Manquillo, Fernandez, Clark, and Lewis (ideally the first three)

Midfielders: M. Longstaff, Hendrick, and Ritchie

Forwards: Gayle

I wonder if we'll be looking to keep any senior players on in a reserves-only capacity, like it seems a lot of the clubs in Europe are doing.

I'm hoping that'll be Dummett's role.

Pope, Dubravka, Darlow

 

Trippier, Krafth

Botman, Schar, Burn, Lascelles

Targett, Lewis, Dummett

 

Bruno, Joelinton, Shelvey, Willock, Longstaff

ASM, Fraser, Almiron, Murphy

 

Wilson, Wood

 

 

That's 23 with your lot jettisoned, so only leaves two gaps. Suggests to me that one of the wingers needs to go too; ideally Murphy for me.

Now that we are filthy rich, would it make any difference to FFP if we simply pay off their contracts and release the surplus players? 

 

Send them all on loan to teams in ksa. Wages paid in full till end of contract. Can play for the team over there, or sit in their house in England. We don't care. 

 

Or move.

Reckon only two more will come in. A striker and right sided forward. That being said I could see Almiron going if there’s an offer for him

Could be right but we're forever getting linked with CMs.

I imagine we’ll just loan most of them out and pay majority of wages tbh

Yeah nothing credible iirc it’s all been foreign press probably just throwing our name in there. Don’t think the British or local press have linked us to many CM’s might be wrong tho

So really one more player in and then if any of them go an upgrade replacement

Ah, the big Dutch Nigerian. I wondered if we might consider him as an alternative to Ekitike, as he is another young emerging striker that scored a lot of goals last season. Looking at his highlights from last season, I like him a lot more physically, compared to Ekitike, as he is really powerful, and should have no issues adjusting to the Premier League.

 

I would have a lot more confidence in him getting in ahead of Chris Wood in the pecking order too, as he looks to be very good at dropping into space and linking play, he looks very technical, lots of lovely touches and passes, and then gets in the box and finds space to score.

 

His contract is going into the final year, as it expires in 2023, and he is not keen on signing on at Bayern, as he didn't get the playing time there, and after last season he really wants to play. If he is to join Newcastle, he will definitely need guarantees on playing time, which would also bode well as far as him getting more game time ahead of Wood.

 

Highlights from last year at Anderlecht.

I think any one of Fraser, Almiron, or Murphy could go if there was any interest at all in them, but I'm not sure there will be.

 

My ideal would be to sign a first-choice CM and first-choice RW/LW to fill the remaining two slots, then to add an Ekitike (doesn't need to be registered) to cover Wilson at ST.

Graeme Bailey has mentioned on the 90 mins podcast that we have some interest in PSV's Noni Madueke. Formerly of Tottenham, left footed right winger. Only 20 years old, but left as a youngster to get more game time.

 

Tottenham seem to have jettisoned a number of really talented wingers from their academy. Marcus Edwards at Sporting Lisbon is another left footed right wing player that had a really good season last year, not sure we are looking at him though.

There will be buyers for all three as they all have some qualities about them, problem would be wages. The sort of clubs who would want them would probably want to pay them half of what they are getting here.

This guy looks class, going off their highlight videos alone he looks better than Ektike.

 

Had never heard of this Zerkze kid tbh but looks very agile and silky for his size. Seems to have really good vision for a striker as well. I feel like his dynamic movement would really combine well with Maxi and Bruno. 

 

Is he a straight up centre forward or can he play on the wing as well?
