Players not signed

Post by omegaprimevkm » Tue Jan 29, 2019 1:32 pm

In the wake of Miguel Almiron not signing (I didn't really ever think he would, but confirmation has come out today that the deal is virtually dead), has anyone ever compiled a list of failed signings under Ashley in recent years where players were heavily linked (as opposed to the odd recommendation ala Seamus Coleman)?

I was thinking of the likes of:

Dele Ali
Andre Lacazette
Mohammed Salah
Virgil Van Dijk

etc.

Weren't we going to sign Zidane and Ronaldo? All clubs have these things. Admittedly all clubs don't fail to sign back up left backs, but still...

Seems a bit of a stretch to include players like Salah and Van Dijk, when I don't remember particularly strong links to them, especially compared to all of the other stories regarding their potential sales.

I’m pretty sure we were strongly linked to Willian at one point too
