    Sokratis was washed. Point taken on Mustafi. In fairness, Gabriel looked pretty sturdy in Spain before we ruined him as well.

    The 4 players you mentioned all cost huge amounts. All signed relatively recently. We dont have 60-80m to throw on a centre half. Personally i still think we spent the Pepe money foolishly and went for an opportunist signing.

    72m could have potentially bought a top CB and a young winger. I think it is much easier to find a winger who will do a half decent job than a top centre half. And we blew the load on the wrong position.

    Either Chelsea, United or us... Although if its true that we've offered a contract to Sarr I'm not sure.

    Chelsea and especially Arsenal have to shift centre backs before they bring anyone in. Liverpool are set at centre back and City/United have Laporte/Magiure to play LCB. So I reckon its Sp**s.

    Vertonghen is going, so there is a gap for a left footed centre back in their squad. Mourinho is also pals with Campos and he seems the type of CB he would go for.

    Hopefully it's us though, on paper he is the best option for the team.

    If swap deals become the norm this summer we could be in a good position with the likes of Guendouzi, Lacazette and even Auba if it comes to it.

    The club that outbid Everton for him was described as being "historically a top 4 club".

    If it’s Arsenal, then ouch. But I assume it’s Chelsea. They’re just finishing off their rebuild.

    That wording doesn't eliminate any club :frustrated:

    Could be United after Ole's comments.

    I don't think we're in for this guy. Think it's either Everton or Sp*rs, or he'll go to Napoli.

    We already bought a leftie in Mari. I think the club's long-term target is Upamecano and if a deal for him is possible they'll go for it, otherwise they'll make do with what we have for next season.

    Don't think its Arsenal who bids as we have more pressing need at CM and also loaded at CB so I expect CM to be the marquee signing this summer. LCB will be sorted with cheapish/free signing of Mari/Sarr. IMO, with Saliba signed only if we can sell 3-4 of Sokratis/Mustafi/Holding/Chambers/Mavro then we can sign another CB.
    This is what IMO we are setting up at CB :
    RCB : Luiz-Saliba
    LCB : Mari and or Sarr/other Lefty CB
    Back up CBs : 1 or 2 of Sokratis/Mustafi/Holding/Chambers/Mavro.

    That'd be ancient history.

    Top 4 is more a modern thing so I'm not sure why he would've used that in reference to them.
