Been linked with that Vlahovic a few times, another who would have some better options right now. Our transfer business will be massively effected by the next month, need to pick up some wins and look in a decent position to avoid relegation.
Would be a top-class signing for sure, as he can easliy go to a Champions League team in the summer so would be a big coupe for us. Exactly the sort of striker we need to partner with Wilson. Big, strong, powerful, mobile & can finish.

Oh, we probably shouldn't actually take the risk of buying him. But as a fellow Kyle from Canada (ignoring his spelling), I want to be the first on record to say I supported the idea if it happened and he was a hit. And more a reflection on our historically terrible and mismanaged national program, but he's become our all-time goalscorer now too.
<laugh>

Kyle Canning from Neighbours is my favourite Kyle, you can be second <roll>
As long as I'm ahead of Kyle Christie of Geordie Shore/The Challenge. <gent>

Can't say I've ever heard of him but would be a bit of a risk; only had one good season (last season) in Europe looking at his stats, in a league that isn't particularly strong.

Rumours out there that Cyle Larin has been offered to us from Besiktas. I've selfishly been talking up Jonathan David from Lille as the Canadian striker we need, but Larin shares a lot of similar qualities (better hold-up play, similar finisher, but not nearly the dribbler of JD), is a few years older (26), but less expensive. Took a bit of time to successfully transition to European football, but he's been a beast for the past season and a half - including 14 international goals this calendar year.

I wonder if Lindgard would turn up in our club like he did at West Ham... <scratch>
I feel like he is certainly someone worth gambling on. Not sure he has the right mindset though, but he looked pissed off and great with the Hammers. I would love a Lindgard who wanted to show ManUtd what he could have been if they shown him some trust.
Didn't he have a interview a few years back where he admitted to have been taking it for granted as a youth and was usually partying every weekend?
Yeah I'll defo take him. Can play in the CAM role & out wide (RW/LW). Creative, pacey, skilful & technically gifted (ball control, passing, shooting, etc). Worth the gamble for sure.

Wouldn't surprise me if that were the case, as it is with lots of footballers who find fame and fortune at a very young age.

But he applied himself straightaway at West Ham and just wanted to play football and show what he could do, would definitely take him.
Or just most people of a young age <laugh>
Footballers just spend more while doing it!

The Times are linking us with Brozovic, De Vrij and Strakosha.
Would love Brozovic here, also bit confused at how strongly we are being linked with a GK, I think Dubravka is more than good enough for the time being, although he is becoming slightly injury prone I suppose.
Would all be quality signings except Strakosha which would be a pointless signing as we already have Dubra and a steady enough lower-mid table (Prem level) goalie in Darlow so I don't see why we constantly getting linked to a GK all the time, it's the least position we need to prioritise. Dubra is only 32 and still has plenty of years left at the top level but yeah his only con is his injury record. Darlow's 31 and is a more than a good enough no.2/no.1 (cup comeptitons).. will he want to be no.2 now that he's shown his worth? Could easily play for a top Championship side/newly promoted teams in the Prem.

Talking of Seria A there's a lot of central midfield players we should look at.. Kessie, Rabiot, Ramsey, Castroviili, Marko Rog, Mattias Svanberg & Razvan Marin to name a few. inter have Sensi & Matias Vecino who I'll take too.

Remember that most of these links are utter bollocks with no foundation. I wouldn’t be surprised if we weren’t remotely interested in any keeper’.
Hence the above confusion <laugh>

Agree with this. We seem constantly linked with Goalkeepers, which is really odd. Dubravka obviously first choice, injury problems an issue. But even then, Darlow has proven himself at least mid-lower premier league capable. For the time being we are set in that position, hardly a priority considering how s**** we are the rest of the pitch. Links to ter Stegen were laughable.

I’d be surprised if Dubravka doesn’t start at the weekend, been on our bench the last 2 league games so must be fit.

Howe will presumably go with what he sees as our strongest first XI so you’d think Dubravka (and Schar) would be in that.
I do fear Schar being away on international duty might be a downside - as he he'll have missed a lot of the training.
Yeah that’s true, tho he’ll probably show Howe within 1 hour on the training pitch that he’s vastly more competent on the ball than any of our other defenders (and most of our midfield probably <laugh> ).

Fitness and health concerns - sure, that's a reasonable question mark. But I won't judge a player's motives for having taken the maximum salary possible from the most dominant Italian club of the past decade. Blame them for paying him so much, but his agent didn't a hold a gun to their heads. Will be interesting to see how much less his next contract pays him, because nobody will match those wages.
Yeah that's a good point, just because he's on £400k a week now doesn't mean he'll have anyone offering him that if he does move.

Also don't begrudge him moving from Arsenal to Juventus, it was a no-brainer if you look at where both clubs were on the pitch at the time he left. He was moving to a title winning team from a side who haven't qualified for the CL for about 5 years now, and also having the chance as it was to play alongside one of the best players in the world in Ronaldo.

He did play over 30 games for Juventus last season, given that we don't progress in cups or play in Europe that would be more than enough for us.

I do think he might be a bit high profile to be interested in a relegation fight with us, but all depends if there are any other serious offers tabled (and that's even IF we are interested).
For sure, personally I don't have the same fitness concerns, but I'm also not going to debate anyone who may.

Credit to Ramsey for taking on the challenge at one of the top clubs on the continent, there still aren't a lot of British players doing that. Usually among other reasons because they will be paid more by an English club - this was probably an exception given the way Juve were spending at that moment in time.
