    Rashica better join us now. Would be a shame for this thread to end.

    I'm going to have to buy a Werder Bremen shirt aren't I. Loving this camaraderie!
  3. Good points both here. I think Smith wants to use him as the deepest, most central of a three-man midfield precisely because he is so good on the ball. We've seen since the restart he can receive an under pressure ball from a defender quite comfortably, turn and release someone with a progressive pass. That's just my view though. We don't know how Douglas Luiz will be used next season yet. I still see differences of opinion between will we play 433 or 4231, which would obviously affect things. Just have to wait and see!

    Ok - Now I'm allowing myself to get a little excited. If this does come to fruition, beyond his obvious talent, the thing I like the most is that we have been linked with him for a year already. I think this is a fair indication this isn't a "sudden" signing, but one that has been on the agenda for a while. It's been a long time since I can recall that kind of planning beyond simply the immediate future at the club, even with the recent changes made to the recruitment staff. Let's see what happens.
  5. Appears that Florinel Coman is going to Crystal Palace. His agent was in London to discuss personal terms according to Romanian media. Rumoured to be around £13.5m. We were linked with him last summer that's why I mention it.

    He is a fine squad player to have at the club, but for our aspirations to move further up the league I think he needs (and will get this summer) someone to really challenge and stretch him in his position for a starting spot going forward.
  7. My mistake then! Thank you for correcting me here.
  8. Impression I had was that Lozano did not play domestically since the restart and was being pushed out. Completely hold my hands up if I'm wrong. Agree on Brekalo - looks promising.
  9. Napoli appear to have agreed a deal with Wolfsburg for Josip Brekalo. He plays predominantly on the left, which I think would confirm Hirving Lozano's time is up at the club. He only moved there last year for £39m and would be available for much less you would think.

    His agent was in Milan last week, he has been linked with AC Milan also. Seems unlikely unfortunately.
  11. Some bits of interest this morning: RB Leipzig have tried to renegotiate their buy cause they had in their loan for Roma's striker Patrick Schick lower because of the impact of the pandemic. Roma aren't willing to lower, but seem to be making him available at the same price to other clubs which is around £23m. Also from Roma, sounds like they are looking to sell Cengiz Under and Justin Kluivert, both of whom are wingers. Neither have been standouts this season from all accounts, but there is talent there and so may be of interest to us.

    Nyland wanted by two clubs in Germany according to a journalist on twitter.
  13. To be fair, there's hardly been any transfers in the Premier League so far since the season finished.
  14. Yep, by no means was I the first. Posters such as yourself have rightly pointed him out on here before. Dilrosun definitely. Like I mentioned in my first post this afternoon, there is a lot of really promising Under 23/Under24 players out there right now and, in my opinion, we are perfectly placed and timed right now to buy two of them. I like the idea of us signing two really exciting wingers this summer at the same time - let them learn, grow and compete against each other as they continue to develop.
