With Kenny now injured and out for a bit, and Seamus also injured, is there any indication that we might be considering Max Aarons before Friday? Haven't heard anything recently except some BS in the Echo that was purely unsubstantiated conjecture. I already rate him going forward above either of our guys, and he could learn the defensive side of things from Coleman and Digne. I'd think 20M up front or a loan with obligation to buy for closer to 25M would get it done. Probably too big of a deal to make this week and perhaps too reactionary to the injuries, but we've wanted to get a guy in for the future in that position for a while now and, to me, he ticks all the boxes.


{Ed025's Note - he has certainly got potential 79 but i expect us to muddle through to be honest mate..

Here's my sense of what's going on, from lots of internet sleuthing, but not any actual insider info of my own.

First, I guarantee Brands is doing everything he can to move Sandro, Bolasie, Sigurdsson, Tosun, and Besic. But there's only so much he can do to get rid of unwanted overpaid players. He probably also would like to get rid of Delph and Davies, but they are lower concerns, as they provide some value to the squad, albeit minimal. Hopefully he can find some loan deals for the first group and maybe some sales for the latter two. Everyone who says there are others to sell before Davies are right, but not at all in tune with the realities of how unwanted those others are. It's not about the order of sale, it's about getting as many of these guys off the books as possible and raising some funds.

Incomings will probably be Allan and James, if it's true that he will lower his wages to play for Carlo again. I know they're expensive and older, but they are both excellent players and Carlo has requested them. The board feels a sense of obligation to Carlo and will overextend itself a bit to satisfy him.

Doucoure is a maybe, if we can do well with the outgoings and Watford accept a more reasonable wage.

Arias will happen if Kenny or Seamus goes, with Florenzi as a second option. But we're not going to have all three.

Nkounkou will be backup LB.

Branthwaite is the fourth CB with no one new incoming, unless a good price is offered for Keane, in which case we might bring in a new CB. Gibson goes out on loan one more time, but he's waiting in the wings.

Kean, Iwobi, Bernard, and Walcott all have major roles to play in the team and stay, unless someone offers an amazing price for them and a replacement can be brought in for something close to net zero (like Josh King) .

Unfortunately Zaha and Ocampos are a bridge too far, despite interest, desire, and need.

If I were to predict:
Incomings: Allan, James, Arias
Outgoings: Tosun, Sandro, Bolasie, Besic, Delph, Gibson, Kenny, most on loan and probably crappy ones at that, but hopefully enough to rationaize the incomings.

Degsy - if it gets us 12M to complete the deal for Allan, it improves us a lot.

Pay the fee and support Carlo; if the many reports are to be believed, Allan is the guy he wants most to fix our midfield. I'm fine if we want to try to continue negotiating for a bit to try to get the fee closer to our valuation, but it's diminishing returns if this extends into training camp over €5M. (Of course, it's not my money. )

How'd that importing leadership from an aging player work out with Delph? Let's do that again.


{Ed0666's Note - pleas do 😂
