Buendia over Benrahma for me.

Would he be the first ever Argentinian to play for us?

edit: Seems likely to be going Leeds...

Bielsa being an Argie would make that move seem an obvious one.

Hopefully we are looking at a potential deal for Watkins as he can play as a striker or wide forward. He works extremely hard and scores goals.

We'd need to sign another striker, and possibly a winger as well, but I think he'd improve us quite a bit.

Wonder if we could sign Watkins, one of Abraham or Edouard and one of Benrahma or Buendia. That would make a huge difference to this team.

God it would be a blow if he went to Wolves.

I don't think they'll be in for him. They have so many options going forward already 

Would be such a good signing.

Enquired about Edouard according to that Sun article, I wonder if they'd take Samatta as part of the deal, would score goals in Scotland and has champions league pedigree.

Not so long ago we was excited at getting Samatta.

.........fools rush in, where angels fear to tread.

Sarr, Doucoure, Deulofeu, Brooks, Hughes, Lerma, Aarons, Cantwell from the relegated sides

I'm curious how accurate the rumours of our interest in Giroud were as I think he'd be an excellent signing and his wages would be similar to what Tammy would demand, but a significantly lower transfer fee I'd imagine and fits the bill of prem experience. 

Wild card suggestion - Lingard or Willian

Cairney has proven to be a flop at PL level, and he's 29 now. This is about as good as he gets.

maybe he was denied the space he had tonight....in the Prem

Lingard would enrage me if we wasted even a penny on him

but we did sign him, didn't we?

Yep - but that infamous line up never occurred.  Saw hia amateur brother Hector play one game for the reserves once - far more skilfiul

Oscar died 2017 in Casablanca

In consistent then😀

 Name a consistent winger that scores for fun that we will be able to attract?

Every creative player has off games, even Messi and Ronaldo have their bad days. This was the biggest game of his career to date. There are very few players with his stats from this season, in any league. He was rated the best player in his league by whoscored this season.  He scored 17 goals as a winger! You don't get that by being easily nullified.

By your definition, Grealish is easily nullified.  And has been many times this season. The point is having two such players capable of something special in the team, means at least two things:

1) they're harder to nullify as you have to cover both of them 

2) when one does have an off day, the chances are the other one won't be.

The fact Grealish has had Trez and El Ghazi as his non threatening counterparts this season has made us so easy to defend against.  Having Benrahma would be very different.

Thanks for the info. I see another USMNT member; Ulysses Llanez Jr. is currently in the Bundesliga with Wolfsburg. Any good? 
 

He's a prospect a lot of people have been monitoring, but I think this year will be telling as he seems to have broken into the first team at Wolfsburg. He was capped for the U.S. against Costa Rica in one of those non-FIFA friendlies where clubs aren't required to release their players and acquitted himself well, looking lively and scoring the only goal. I don't get the impression that he's a prodigious talent like Christian Pulisic or Gio Reyna breaking through at Dortmund, but he's certainly one to keep an eye on.
