    Looks like we made a £14 million offer for Navas.

    Madrid fans seem unhappy that the Club is selling him also. He's always been solid for Madrid.

    I think he's great. One of the best CB in the league right now. And will be even better with top players around him. I think we could try with about £30M. He'll be worth at least double that in not time.

    Ake would be an improvement on our current options, but he's still part of a Bournemouth side that leaks goals for fun. Also, he seems to lack physicality and height. He's 5'11, which is the same height as me! And I don't think I'm tall enough to be a good CB (players like Mascherano are exceptions to the rule).

    We've been linked with Nicolas Nkoulou. 28-years old, 6'1, good passer of the ball, strong in aerial duels. We could do a lot worse.

    To be honest, he wouldn't be a world class signing but he's a good option to have IMO. He's part of a Torino side with a reasonable defensive record this season (19 goals in 19 games). The 5th best defensive record in Serie A to date.

    And considering we don't have much money either, he could prove to be a decent purchase.

    Apparently both the Navas and Cahill rumours are false.

    Where does the press come up with this stuff from?! ..What happened to having reliable verifiable sources? I mean has journalism really just turned into Twitter/Reddit internet searches?

    Hasn't it always been just that?

    Proof that Liverpool are a better run club than us?

    They've sold Dominic Solanke, a kid who has 1 goal in his last 30 appearances for them, to Bournemouth.

    The fee? £19m.
    How much did they Liverpool pay for him initially? £3m.

    They've made £16m profit on a player that has barely played for them and has proven nothing at this level.

    Can we get their negotiators to come over to our club, please?

    Denis Suarez rumours are gaining pace. Looks like a tricky little player and possibly an improvement on Ramsey. We definitely need a CB this window though.

    He's 24 years old, is versatile (can play deep lying playmaker, no.10 or on the flanks), played under Emery before and has a lot of experience playing at the top level for such a young kid.

    For £14m, it's a low-risk, high-reward situation.

    Not 100% sure this should be a priority considering our problems in defence and on the flanks (Suarez is not a natural wide player), but I think he could be a shrewd acquisition.

    Just to compound matters:

    Manchester City are about to sell Brahim Diaz, youth player who has made 5 appearances for them this season, to Real Madrid for £22m. £22m. For a youth player who has 6 months left on his contract.

    We can beat that. We sold Cazorla, Wilshere, Ramsay and Gnabry for £5m in total. #bestrunclubintheprem

    Any reliable rumors on Denis Suarez? Deal close but I have little idea about the player.

    Yeah this one looks like it might really happen.

    Good player.

    Over the last 3-4 Seasons its becoming clear that
    Not to be pedantic here but..
    Cazorla (one of my all time favourite players) - I'm not sure he could handle the physicality of the EPL anymore.
    Gnabry - Decent but he's Iwobi level. He's not the World beater some thought he would be.
    Fabregas - Should never have let him go. And for sure we should have re-signed him when he left Barca. Right now though he's 33 and cant make the starting 11 for Chelsea. Again he wouldnt do much for our squad.
    Nelson - He is an Arsenal player.
    Diarra - Really?.. Lst Season he was Al Jizera in the UAE. Defintely not a top player anymore - if he ever was.
    Carlos Vela - He's not a Top four player. At 28 he moved the the MLS. Had a decent run at Real Socieadad but nothing particularly impressive. Not better than what we have.

    Cazorla would stroll into our midfield right now. He's never been a player that relies on pace, but on his speed of thought, passing range, ambidexterity and technical qualities. Of course he would be good enough for us right now. Look at how integral he's been for Villareal so far.

    You must be kidding me with Gnabry. We should never have let him go. He won Bayern Munich's Player of the Month for November and has been playing a lot more regularly. 'Iwobi level'? It's not even a close comparison, Gnabry is miles ahead.

    Carzorla maybe One of my all time favourites. I'm wondering if he could physically still handle the EPL though in terms of impacts. (with his ankle issues)

    Gnabry. I dont think so. When you look at Schurle, Kagawa, Mkhitaryan, Holtby, Schweinsteiger its cleearly easier foe AMF/WF's in the Bundesliga.
    Iwobi would be equally as successful in Germany - World Class NO! Good enough to excel in that league?.. Hell Yes. Same with Wellbeck.
    Reiss Nelson is interesting but I'm not fully sold on him either.

    Personally think we have alot of players who are at a good level but just lack that TOP class potential. If we are to sign a CB or WF in the next 6 months they need to be TOP class otherwise we will stay right where we are in the league.

    Being linked to James Rodrigues for £64 million.

    Makes next to no sense - dont believe a word of it.

    We ain't spending £64m on anybody.

    The Denis Suarez deal looks the most likely at the moment, but apparently Barca are playing hardball this morning. Usual transfer machinations really, there's always a period of will he/won't he before these deals get done.
