He chose Roma as they were the ones that met Chelseas asking price
We didn't bid because it was reported he wanted £150k a week if I recall

Do people really believe we should be spending £25m on Broja? A 20 year old with 5 goals and no assists in 18 league appearances this season? One who averages 10 passes, 0.1 key passes, and 57% pass completion per game?

Some of you have standards so low you must have an absolute field day in Wetherspoons on a Friday night.
Not watched him enough to form an opinion either way but it’s a bit unfair to judge him only based on those stats. The fact he’s homegrown, has some PL experience, a long contract and is so young will always drive his price up. On top of that his club aren’t desperate to sell as they don’t need the money.

I can't see anyone being OK with it, we all want that striker, and all the rest of the stuff that the squad needs.

If the above scenario does indeed play out...what are you suggesting happens? We sack Moyes and replace him with someone who spends more easily? Or Moyes signs a player he doesn't really fancy...To me both of those options feel more ridiculous than continuing with just Antonio

Moyes is also on quite an extraordinary run of astute purchases so I reckon he's earnt a bit of benefit of the doubt in the regard - no matter how frustrating it is from our end.

Hwang Hee Chan's loan move at Wolves is being made permanent at £12m.

A few people on here fancied him last Jan/in the summer.
I said at the time that i'd thought he would have been a good addition here

I don't think so.

I don't think the player was ever interested in coming here.

There is a bit of me that wonders if the reason Chelsea are reportedly open to a deal now is that he's hit a relative purple patch and they don't expect him to sustain it. If they thought he would sustain it all season then surely they could bank another £5m if they waited until the summer.

I think, more than anything for me, it's the price tag that gets me on it. There's no way he is actually worth £25m. Half that, maybe £15m, and I think it's a bit more reasonable. But £25m? It's way over the top, especially for someone aged 20 with half a season of first team football under their belt and that's it. There are certainly some positive signs there, but if I was presented with a choice of spending that money on Broja or £15m on Caleta-Car with £10m left to pitch in Man United's direction for Lingard (say) then I'd 100% be taking option two,
Not true. He played in the Eredivisie for a year scoring 10 goals and also has 10 international caps (with 3 goals). He looks very impressive for his age and is already built like a man. Saints fans are raving about him. I don't see it happening but he would be an astute signing for us. I personally think he's gonig to have a big future from what i've seen of him.

Astute purchases up to last summer. Zouma & Areola good buys although I’m not sure if we’ll make Areola permanent with the Sam Johnston rumours always around. The other 2 was a waste of time, so last summer was 50/50 at best I think.

Pretty sure we did bid, and wanted a loan with an option, Chelsea turned it down

On the strong possibility that not that much transfer activity is going to happen in the next 5 days, get ready for the following discussions,
Why Ball, Harvey & Kendall were better than Moore, Hurst & Peters,
Goodison was a much better park than Upton
Z Cars is a much better tune than I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles.

Kral clearly there to make up the numbers but again let's not pretend finances aren't impacting on his amount of game time.

Vlasic a waste of time... interesting angle and one I really don't follow, think he'll become a key player in the future.

Let's remember it's taken Bowen, a player who's played in England all his life nearly 18months to start showing what he can do on a regular basis.

When Moyes does finally sign the striker and it turns out he's been signed for the next 4-5 years and not the next 4 months some people on here are gonna need some heavy emotional support to get through that.

Oh, did he have a season at Vitesse? Didn't realise, my bad.

Like I said, it's the price tag putting me off more than anything. Mind you, I'm sure if Perkins hit the same goals/assists in those many minutes we'd be disappointed with less should someone come sniffing around.

Just saw one of the WHU fan accounts post on Facebook that the blocking of Lingard transfer is going to do no good for a team rumoured to want Rice.

Some of you have standards so low you must have an absolute field day in Wetherspoons on a Friday night.
Or people can see the obvious talent he has? This comment will look rather ridiculous in a couple years when he's worth far more than £25m.

Your use of stats is also misleading, pretty sure you've been pulled up on this before when it comes to Borja. He wasn't brought in to be Southampton's main striker so made a number of sub appearances at the beginning of the season and two further sub appearances after coming back from injury. Minutes wise he's played less than equivalent to 11 full games and has 5 goals plus 1 assist, as well as winning a pen against us. In the first game against us he also caused us all sorts of problems off the bench.

Many think he'll be part of the Chelsea squad next season unless a big offers comes in for him, it's not hard to figure out why that might be. Maybe you just need to watch him play a bit more.

He'd be an excellent signing, which unfortunately won't happen. Chances of us signing a better striker than Borja in this window are incredibly low, especially when you consider how he's likely to improve. If we sign him Antonio will have a huge challenge on his hands to remain our number one striker until the end of the season.

You think Sully would give a **** they didn't sell us Lingard if Man U offer anything above £80M for Rice?

What, to get through exactly what we've been waiting for him to do for 3 transfer windows and over a year :eh: That's an interesting take!

I'm happy with someone like Ekitike to come in with a view to lightening the work load off of Mickey this season and perhaps start in only a handful of games and make some sub appearances. No problem..

The incoming centre back, however should be good to go and ready to play competently straight away. Caleta-Car should tick that box.

I'd be satisfied with Caleta-Carr and Ekitike
