    Always hoped that we'd go for Bruno Peres. Seems to have all the attributes we need and, at 26, would be the right age, filling the gap between those already contracted.

    Bertrand would be a good shout - or he'll follow the well trodden route from Southampton to Liverpool.

    Fabinho would offer some skill & versatility, with the bonus of being a big lad.

    You get my vote too for the first choice slot!

    LB and RB are the most demanding positions in the team and need to be regularly rotated so we really do need 4 going forward.
    So Maffeo and Zinchenko are good bets for second choice but only Maffeo will qualify as home grown (we bought Zinchenko a year too late). I believe our fullbacks WILL be pushed further forward than other teams. the 2-3 formation of CH and DM/FB are probably with us to stay - regardless of whether there is a Diamond.

    But in reality we need TWO English trained players in the full back slots. Maffeo would be one so really, we need one of Spurs Full backs, Rose or Walker - more likely Danny Rose as he's a Left Back - The cost would be extortionate.

    Looking at other option that could pop up in the market.
    RB - Ricardo Pereira, Peres, Fabinho, Sidibe
    LB - Alex Sandro, Grimaldo if Healthy, maybe Bertrand, I wouldn't hate it if we tried to go after Kurzawa again

    I know we took the piss out of him for a while, but he is a decent player

    Don't think any player is the same after an injury like that,especially a defender who may have to go in for tackles that may not always be in their favour,must play on the mind,IMO.

    If Zinchenko becomes a genuine member of our squad it will be as back-up for the 8 and 10 positions, not as a left-back.

    If Kompany gets fit and we get van dijk, plus otamendi then Stones could be an option at RB
