Hugo Ekitike


Miggys First Goal

Who is driving this deal, the owners, Nixon, Howe? I can see Howe wanting a far more experienced or recognised forward personally. Again I’m not fussed, I know fuck all of the kid other than he can’t spell!

Totally. I wonder if the Ekitike deal falling through would make us rethink our strategy and see us go all out for one striking target or even use the funds to go after someone who was previously out of reach like Diaby/Paqueta.

Imo we're looking only for a backup to Wilson this window and Ekitike is our primary target for that role. His stats for the season can rival any £50 million striker.

Best solution for this window up top is Ekitike(or another up and coming striker) and a RW who can also be a back-up striker if/when Wilson is out injured.

Bruno is the prime example if someone taking the gamble and embracing the project. From this kids highlights he’s more than capable of doing the same thing. If he hasn’t got the right attitude though and wants to play silly bastards - fuck him, simple as that. There will be another player who will buy into what we’re building.

His reluctance to join us for the last 6 months makes me think he's really not the player for us, surely there are many other options that are more proven that we can go for?

Exactly this. I'd like us to be looking at players who actively want to come here and be part of something. Not ones who are only after the paycheck on the way to Man City/PSG.

 

Under Ashley we were deliberately marketed as a stepping stone. That isn't the case now.

I can understand him not wanting to jump ship for a relegation fight in a completely different league in January. It was his breakthrough season and things were going well for him.

 

This summer I think he's just being badly advised by a total moron of an agent. I don't think Ekitike or his agent or against signing for us, more so just believing he can get him a deal at PSG/Dortmund etc. It's been handled pretty shoddily, like.

Journalists are consistently reporting that the lad has agreed personal terms, some going as far to say that there's a five year deal on the table.

 

There's been a lot of speculation as to what's going on with his agent from his fees to wanting a minimum release clause, it sounds like jourmlists trying to fill in the gaps.

 

I don't think we know enough to be suggesting that the player himself is chasing a pay cheque. The only real worry for me if he does sign is the behaviour of his agent going forward. Is he going to be trying to get him a move every transfer window?

When it comes to his agent unless we get him on a crazy long deal we’re going to be back to square one when his deals coming to an end having to deal with a humongous prick.

Give him a 12 year deal.

If a player wants a move, they generally get it regardless of what the agent wants. If the player has left everything in the agents hands they're clearly not that arsed about the move and are only interested in the £££.

 

This one should be left and move on to other targets. If he wants to be here the agent will be back cap in hand

Sorry, I don't have the time to read every single post on this forum.  I'll make sure I do in future.

 

Just read the date at the top next time, it might help.

He's 20. I think this is generally true of older players.

 

We are so unproven. The whole project is unproven. And we've been shit all his memorable life. He may think it's a good idea but I can see him leaning on an agent / parents for a final decision.

 

Also apparently he's agreed his own terms. So it's just agent shit knocking about. Agent could be telling him all will be resolved, he's just getting his own money right.

We haven’t got the budget for 2 strikers I don’t think, we still have other positions to fill.

So what? In a couple of years hopefully we'll be at a stage where we can attract any amount of top strikers. If he wants to leave for other pastures, we will probably be able to sell him for a decent fee and on to the next one.

Ffp is very real this  year, people need to stop thinking “we’re the richest club in the world etc”

 

 and we need a cb, rw  and hopefully cm still
