    True, but if we can sell Gazzaniga and bring him in, then we'd gain some depth.
    The loan at Elche has been an utter waste of time though, so I can't see us getting a great fee for him.

    So we're all going to pretend that rumour of signing Fellaini doesn't exist so we can go on with our days, right?

    Pereira's an interesting one if West Brom go down. I think there'll be a fair bit of interest, though.

    I'm wondering if we're looking at the other direction, namely teams who don't come up

    Michael Olise at Reading's the obvious one as his name has come up off and on since January, and if Barnsley don't come up we could strike a deal with Orlando City for Daryl Dike, while Djed Spence at Middlesbrough's name was doing the rounds last summer

    Italian outlet, Corriere dello Sport, reckon Lamela is very close to joining Napoli. Apparently he held talks with Milan too. Bit out of the blue so not sure how seriously to take it.

    Also reports in Birmingham that Wolves may try to buy Vinicius as we won’t be taking up the buy option.

    Both decisions would make sense but it'd be nice to know who's making these decisions?

    Yet another indication that we need a proper DoF....not Hitchen or Danny Rose.

    They do know he's not Portuguese, don't they?

    Lo Celso is always injured and Ndombele can only manage a half of football so it wouldn’t be an issue

    If a decent bid came in, I would happily sell both of them.

    Rarely been so disappointed by any of our signings. That they cost so much and were apparently scouted for 2 entire years is humiliating.

    I'd like to see them both playing a good run of games in a system that makes sense, but there's little chance of that happening, unfortunately.
    Lo Celso's been crocked for most of his time at the club and Ndombele gets clogged out of games regularly.
    They should've been our replacements for Eriksen and Dembele, but they don't get used that way, even when they're both available.

    If Lo Celso and Tanguy did not have to continually cover for the sieve that is our defense they would be more productive. Both of them seem to be the targets for opposition hatchet men and therefore pick up more injuries particularly in a season when recovery periods are routinely insufficient. For the rest of the season we should have a settled back line that understand each other and free up the rest of the team to do what that were bought for.

    That’s my viewpoint on them, especially Lo Celso.

    They can’t seem to play well when together on the pitch either, albeit that’s only been about 10 times in nearly 2 bloody years... And I get some will blame for Jose for that and maybe he is partially at fault for his style/ tactics but when two (supposedly) creative players are starting behind Son and Kane you’ve gotta expect to see ‘something’ from them yet both massively flatter to deceive.

    They’ve cost us nearly £100m combined and they’ve given the output of about two £10m players that you’d pick up from a decent Championship side.

    They don't cover for it though. Tanguy especially does pretty much nothing for the defense. I agree that there is an argument that the two of them are far less effective in a team that sits so deep and spends so much time on the back foot, that is certainly true. But one of them seems to be permanently injured while the other - despite improving on the no-show last season - still drifts in and out of games, looks totally disinterested for large periods and hasn't once set the tempo of play against above-average opposition.

    Calcio Mercato joining Corriere dello Sport in saying Lamela is likely to be off. They claim Bologna is also interested, CdS initially said it was Napoli and AC.

    Good to see there’s a decent bit of interest in him from various sides, a return to Italy should be good for him too.

    PSG Watch
    La Parisien report that PSG want to re-sign Aurier, with several at the club - from Leonardo to Poch - in agreement

    And who are we to stand in the way if they want to pay us a decent sum of money for a player who will help with their HG numbers?
