Ed002, any chance of an update on our transfer plans this month? I noticed you gave a mini update on the Liverpool page and was hoping for similar. It seems the likes of Sancho, Werner won't happen this month, so are the club looking at other options, or biding our time till plan A targets are available?

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed.}

Any truth in the rumour jack grealish for Ross Barkley plus £20 million? It was mentioned at work this morning I can't find anything?

{Ed002's Note - None.}

I'm not Barkley's biggest fan due to his inconsistency but there's nothing that Jack Grealish can do that Ross can't. Don't see why we would want Grealish- he looks good in a poor team.

I disagree about Grealish - I believe that he is an exceptional talent.

{Ed001's Note - are we talking about Jack Grealish? There must be another Grealish only people keep talking about talents and Jack has little to speak of.}

anyone who wears their socks like Grelish is more concerned about appearance than being a footballer. well aside from Steve Claridge perhaps.

According to the Times, Chelsea have made an enquiry about Brighton centre-back Lewis Dunk, with the Seagulls valuing the 28-year-old England defender at £50m. Not sure that we need a CB tbh, but is there any truth to this one?

The funniest rumour I’ve seen so far was from a rag that said Christensen was being sold to make room for Ake. The very next day the same rag said the club is negotiating a new contract with the same player.

They haven’t got a scooby doo!

How do my fellow posters feel about this Kante going to Madrid story?

I can't believe we would sell him in this window but who knows. I guess it's all about the price!

Any input from the Eds would be appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - Whoever has told you that Kante is leaving this month is teasing you Tom.}

I think, be it to Madrid or elsewhere, he'll move on in the summer - and I wouldn't blame him if he did.

I don't think he really fits into our current system, I've said before that he's a world class round peg in a square hole. Plus, for him, I'd imagine the opportunity to play for someone like Madrid or Juventus is tempting - surely it would be for any player? He's won everything in England - the opportunity to go and do so in another top league, at another top club, must be tempting.

Best of luck to him if he does leave.

Thanks for the reply Ed and thank god for that.

Kante is a world class player and will forever be a legend for us. I think he deserves his exit if he wants to try something new. I couldn't disagree with your post J.

Next year he will be 29 years and it will be the perfect time to sale him and recoup some money.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Jan 2020 18:59:56
Keep at all costs and get players to fit around him. His world class. Only world class player we have, make captain too,

{Ed047's Note - to right, he’s incredible

Fabian Ruiz - kante.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Jan 2020 21:12:53
We might need more than one player to replace Kante Matt.

If he goes and I hope he doesn’t he will be a big loss.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Jan 2020 22:34:07
Matt, I did something I don’t usually do. I checked out the player you mentioned as a replacement for Kante. He does look like a very good player.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Jan 2020 23:10:22
I meant to play beside him, kante AND Ruiz,

Understood Matt but the lad looks like a player!

I think Kante has many years left in him and why would we not want to keep him? We have a lot of young players at the club and they NEED great role models. Who could be a better role model than Kante?

Jorghino I have a lot of respect for. He drives a lot of what the team does. He is dedicated. He communicates and he leads. Communication he knows is important and he learnt English so that he can do that well. Ahaon, a role model, for our younger emerging players.

Ed lots of reports that we enquired about lemar and considering taking him in loan, any truth or interest thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Thomas Lemar (AM/LW) is being offered around either for sale or for a six month loan with an obligation to buy. Arsenal are likely unimpressed with the €60M asking price or loan deal of €5M with the obligation to buy in the summer which will put them off - they may look to asking for a loan with an option to buy but Atletico want him off the books. Has also been offered to Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Spurs. England is attractive because of the high fees. Those hawking him around will next look to Germany before thinking about Italy. Ideally, Atletico want their money back.}

Obviously I know next to nothing about what happens behind the scenes in professional football and about the economy involved in transfers etc., but isn't it really optimistic from Atletico to want the money that they spent on him back, considering that he hasn't really proved anything positive since making his move to Atletico and given the fact that, although the money in transfers seems to have risen dramatically in the last few years, they still paid a lot of money when they bought him?
At least, if I were representing a club interested in him, I think it would be much more reasonable to instead make it an option to buy him instead of an obligation. But perhaps that's just me :) But obviously it makes sense if you're Atletico and want to sell him :)

{Ed002's Note - They accept they won't get it all back. But English sides pay a premium - somethimes a significant premium.}

Agree0 1Disagree

11 Jan 2020 18:06:46
Can I ask why English sides pay a premium ed? Is it to do with just having more money as the premier league is the most watched league in the world so clubs benefit from what rewards come with that?

{Ed002's Note - It is because the Premier League have disproportionately more money than all but a few sides and some EPK sides are arrogant, or in one particular case, disrespectful when doing business with certain clubs.}

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Jan 2020 18:40:16
Yeah that makes sense ed cheers. Frustrating to hear but not surprising when you see examples like Man U spending £80m on Maguire, wonder what they’d pay for a genuinely world class player.

The sooner we sell christiansen the sooner we can buy him back for more when he's good like we do with all our other signings. Get on it frank.

Should be buying back Salah and KDB some day soon then!

With Pedro's sale been ruled out by Lampard it seems as if we may be doing very little business this window. Feel like a backup ST may be the only purchase we make and i don't have a clue who that may be. Felt the CB position would be another area we were going to improve by going for Ake but it doesn't seem as if any of the CB's are moving on until at least the summer.

So you'd think that'll rule him out. All i can say is if this were to happen i wouldn't be too happy but it was clear our top targets weren't going to be available in January and i'd rather wait and get them in the summer than waste money on our 3rd or 4th options.

My worry though is that we need CL football to get them, and with United seemingly getting Bruno Fernandes and our need for a creative mid i fear we'll miss out on top 4 which would be costly to our business in the summer. Of course i've learnt not to take what players and managers say about transfers too seriously so we may do more than i think.

Franks press conference played down the liklehood of any signings.
In addition he said Christensen was not leaving but Giroud may if it suits all parties but no decision currently
Pulisic has an injury which is more weeks than days.

I wouldn't pay much attention to press conferences. Conte said we aren't signing a left back and Emerson joined 12 hours later.

Good summary Turvey.

Also the latest news on RLC doesn’t sound encouraging.

I’ve still got a feeling we will sign a left footed defender and that could be Ake and maybe one other player before this window closes.

I am also pleased Lamps doesn’t want Christiensen sold. I’m convinced there is a proper “modern” defender there trying to get out.

Agree1 0Disagree

10 Jan 2020 15:52:13
I can't see Ake arriving unless one CB is leaving which doesn't seem to be the case.

Agree2 0Disagree

10 Jan 2020 17:31:42
To a certain extent I think you are correct about Ake Turvey.

I tagged onto the Ake idea after I was told (not sure how accurate the info was) we wanted to sign a couple of natural left footed players and another poster suggested one might be Ake.

I suppose Ake could play left back as well as a central defender.
