Absolutely, but why on earth would Marseille go for that? We’d be fuming if Marseille asked us to loan them Zouma.
I think it'd be more like them asking us to take Diop on loan...

...18 months on his deal
...Not a first choice any more
...Not been at his best there for a while for whatever reason

For the same reasons we'll flog Diop cheaper than we want to some time in the next 18 months, they will Caleta-Car

Calum Chambers has signed for Villa. Not sure a fee has been announced, but it's a transfer, not a loan.
We should've been all over that

I actually thought Chambers would have been a decent signing for us. Can cover RB, CB & DM. Played well against us last season and was Fulham’s player of the season a couple of seasons ago.

I think Caleta-Car still starts for them, doesn’t he? I just don’t really see why they’d want to loan him without an obligation, as there’s every chance he’s not up to it, so they’d get him back in however many month’s time with less time left on his contract and worth less too.

There's no fascination... if Moyes has watched him plenty and likes what he sees, that's good enough for me. I'd go for Carvalho too. And Worrall.

And no, I wouldn't be happy with Mitrovic. He's the only person I can think of off the top of my head that looks less mobile than Caleta-Car.
Sorry, let me rephrase that...

Bit of a master of none though isn’t he? we’ve got 4 RB’s and I don’t think he even starts over Kral at DM

I think he’s decent, just not for us right now

Tea leaves have told me that we will bid for a player tomorrow and it’ll either be accepted or rejected.

Can’t reveal my tea source at this time.
Well okay... but could you just give us a hint?....are the initials PG?

I would argue this window could define our next 10 years.

Not first choice...

If he is up to it they could remove any doubt and have a few clubs keen.

Put it this way, if they can't shift him permanently and he doesn't fit their plans between now and the end of the season what's the real risk?

Seems to me we're still looking for a loan so we can invest most of our money up top... but hard to do that without all the chess pieces in play

Not sure about Caleta-Car personally. Think Moyes is right on that one.

I think he probably plays ahead of Kral, but like you said, possibly not right for us now. He’d certainly get on our bench at the mo, not that that says a lot!

I don’t think they’ll weaken their squad depth if they can’t get a replacement in. Better to make sure to get CL football then try to sell in the summer

With Brereton Diaz, would people be happy of we signed Domonic Solanke or Mitrovic?

I don't understand the fascination with Diaz other than he's not been proven to be crap in the premier league like the other two have.
Great technique, can score from anywhere, good in the air, runs all day (including the channels and back), can hold up a ball, and for 6,3 is amazingly good with his feet.
Can play anywhere up top (forward,left or right wing)

He's also scored 3 in the last 5 for Chile.

He's scoring at a far better rate then Bowen did when we bought him.

Hes your typical Moyes signing

£25m is a bargain.

Oh dear.

Had a chat with a mate when Bournemouth signed solanke and was proved right one of the worst prem strikers we have seen.

Absolutely no chance goals in the championship are masking a terrible player.

No to Mitrovic aswell rather wait and save the money

The Championship's leading goal scorer this season with 27 goals and he has scored some belters too. His trouble is, he has never done all that great in The Premier League but he's been awesome for Fulham this term

Mitrovic would be a good depth addition. He’s a pretty good player who would get his fair share of goals. He would certainly provide physicality up front.

Ah ok. I thought he was quite highly rated and played week in, week out. That does make a difference then. I’m not really sure about him so wouldn’t be too bothered either way if we got him or not.

Shame we don’t have a bit more cash to splash, we’re only a few away from being really good.

Yet they're reported to be open to a permanent transfer now? Maybe they have a replacement lined up with the money?

My guess is his agents has approached knowing we're interested and Moyes has said he'll take him but only on loan and that's where this has all come from...

Mitrovic is scoring at a far better rate than he is. People were saying Armstrong was a bargain last year or Maupay or Adams when they arrived. Toney was desired by all yet 31 in 45 last season is 6 in 21 this.

Scoring in the championship is zero indication of doing it in the PL.

For me the two who have succeeded most recently are Bowen and Watkins and both have one quality above any of the others (save maybe Armstrong) - pace. Do not know how quick Brereton-Diaz is but for the modern PL if he does not possess this he is likely to struggle however good his technique (think Haller).
