    Anyone know if there's any chance at all we're in talks with Werner? I#d love him here

    What is Thiago’s contract situation at Bayern?
    Would Chelsea really sell hazard to us?
    I would of thought Kane will be looking at moving as he will struggle for silverware at Spurs. He may give them one more season in their new stadium.

    Weigl, Mbappe and a quick, technically proficient, young left back and that's business wrapped up.

    I think he signed a new contract recently, so I am not optimistic we could get him. IMHO he is anyway to injury prone, so I'd prefer somebody else.

    Yeah I think you're right sadly. I wish we could work it into the loan deals to pay them for game time. If he plays 60% of games he's fit for we give them £5 million or if he isn't playing they have to cover his wages or something.

    Not just for this transfer but in general. No way we're getting value for money on Douglas Luiz loan for example, he may as well be here turning out for the under 23s.

    Opinions of course, but I do think he is. I know it's youtube highlights, but imagine Sane injured or Sterling out and watch Mahrez. He causes havoc and could easily slot in on either wing. Also like you say imagine if KDB or Silva is out and maybe riddled with injuries in the midfield. Watch Mahrez in the vid basically playing as a 10 down the middle. He will find key passes, can hold the ball well and also either shoot from outside the box ala KDB or play crosses in like both KDB and Silva. He's got a good free kick and can score as well. I know Hazard would be great, but I don't see it happening. I just don't see Chelsea selling to us. For me Mahrez is a lot better then some people think.

    I personally think we'll bring in Fred and Mahrez with maybe Toby depending on what happens with our CBs

    I really like Mahrez. We were clearly in for him in January. Contrary to what the media said it wasn’t a panic buy due to Sane’s Injury.

    He would be an excellent addition and was really eager to join, the move didn’t go through and he got depressed.

    We could get him for £60m which is great value. Rather have him than the over priced and over rated Hazard.

    He is the perfect age too. With Leroy, Raz, Bernardo, Jesus all so young buying another inconsistent youngster like Bailey makes zero sense to me. We need someone 25-28 years old who is proven.

    Good montage and you can appreciate how good he is at leaving player on his backsides (including 2-4 of our lot). He's such a threat that many teams resort to doubling (sometime trebling) up on him, but because he's so adept at turning either way it's practically impossible to stop him. If we had him and teams even doubled up on him, it would create even more space for the rest.The other thing that stands in his favour is that he knows the league. Players coming to us need to learn the system and, if coming from abroad, adapt to the league. It's quite noticeable that, save for Ederson, the new player who has managed the most minutes this season has been Walker, so I wouldn't be against signing him.
