I think anyone signing Auba for big money is taking a huge gamble. He's always struck me as a system player, he is perfect for the way BVB play, but take a look at his goal compilations. He scores a lot of similar goals from similar positions and if you can't get him set in that poacher role then he'd struggle. Also given his age offering him a big money contract is going to see whoever paying him lots of cash as he starts to diminish as a player.

This is actually what has me worried about Lacazette. If you look at a player like Sanchez, he could play in any team and make them better through sheer force of will. Even a guy like Ozil, as great as he is, is only good in a team that sets up around his skill set.

  • Jack Wilshere wanted on loan by Palace - after the Remy debacle last year, no thanks.
  • Bentek wanted by Chelsea as backup striker - sure, after we signed three other strikers. You want to wait for that Conte?

Auba is a fantastic poacher but I'd rather have someone more versatile. And not 28.

And please shoot me if Benteke is our only forward signing this summer.

I hope you do, because if you sign Benteke from us, we have f*cking nothing on top. All while we continue to be linked with dozens of defender, despite us really only needing a CB and a RB there.

He needs games to get used to the system and players, though, he's still a little raw.

Sky Sources say we're pulling the plug on the Morata deal, the "hierarchy" aren't sure on him...

Why would wages be included in a bid to club? Thats a completely different thing. They could bid a billion and still be fine with FFP if they spread payment out.

I'm with you on this. But will they actually give him a shot? I hoped that the whole shipping of/disregarding the youngsters would've ended with the second Mou departure, but it seems to be ingrained in Chelsea leadership regardless.

Seems like it's the club's strategy, which is a shame.

Klopp was right in his interview, though, that numerous players have struggled at Chelsea (when talking about Salah).

In addition to shipping players out on loan, we also NEVER rotate. Mou didn't and Conte doesn't either, players just don't get the game time they need.

Joe Hart signs for West Ham on loan 🛠

He conceded 64 goals in 37 games in Serie A last season at Torino.

A fresh start.

yikes didn't realise his season was so poor. I guess nobody at West Ham did either.

Pretty sure Lazio has been shopping him around, but he'd rather play out the year and sign for free for Juve.

Holy crap!

Marca (spanish newspaper) and Esporte Interactivo (brazilian newspaper) are saying PSG will buy Neymar! :O

In fact they're saying Neymar already gave his approval on the deal. If this goes through, it'll cost PSG 222€M!!

2-2-2€M!!! INSANE!! If it happens this will likely be the most expensive deal in football (maybe even many other sports in general) EVER.

West Ham have had a fee agreed. So it's up to Keita.

West Ham announcing Hart is another bad one.

Also since PSG has matched his buy out clause Barça can't refuse.

A chilean newspaper is reporting Wenger stated he already decided to keep Sánchez, dismissing any offer for him. In another chilean newspaper there was a news regarding Guardiola asking Sánchez to get more involved in the negotiations. Pep asked Alexis to talk directly to Wenger about him not wanting to be in Arsenal anymore.

This is becoming a little soap opera here in Chile. Pretty much everyday we have news like these.

I will be very disappointed if Alexis continue playing for Arsenal :-/
