    If we swap Rose with Shaw, we would require a load of cash in addition. Shaw's only got one year left on his contract when it's summer '18.

    I don't think signing Sessegnon is very realistic at the price Fulham want for him. Everton won't want to sell Barkley to us in January especially if they are in relegation trouble. I don't think they liked the way we negotiated and would rather sell to another club than to us. It's going to come down to Barkley imposing his will on the club.

    Zaha would be the final piece of the jigsaw for me.

    Is Barkley even back training yet?

    This may be completely off topic but does Barkley come across as a little dumb? I remember reading something about him lacking a footballing brain and that he was not able to adapt do different situations in a game. This may be total bs ofc and Poch could probably coach the hell out of him but i do believe intelligence of the field is linked to good decision making on the field - you do not need awful a lot of it in football in general but in some roles (playmaker) it can be handy.

    I'd be happy with any of these, can only see Barkley happening in January though.

    Not sure that is really true. I've seen Sheringham interviewed a few times and he doesn't come across as particularly bright.

    Players who are intelligent on the pitch see the game in a different way. They play off instinct which comes off partly as the way they train.

    Barkley has displayed good on the field instincts by being one of the highest chance creators in the league, his academic intelligence has nothing to do with it.

    I think his price will be determinedmore by who is interested in him than what Fulham want for him.

    If a host of top clubs are in for him then a bidding war can begin and they'll get top dollar. If we're by far the best side then we can have more of a say in the price.

    I don't believe Fulham are particularly wealthy so cannot afford to turn down a really high bid as they are not in the promotion chase this season but should be out of the relegation scrap.

    Probably not a January signing though. .

    Making his debut for Dortmund was a big deal to be fair

    Barkley would be immense for us I think. Bring him in now and then he has half a season to bed and a full preseason.

    Agree 100%

    He could give us a timely boost too. A new signing gives a buzz

    Me too but I think we have missed the boat with him. He signed a new contract in the summer out and palace would be demanding big money £50m plus imo, which I I doubt we would entertain

    If they get relegated that situation might change.

    Would be a great signing, but I cant see it happening, that would be the final nail in Palace's coffin!

    He pretty much already did that when he refused to sign for Chelsea despite them agreeing a fee with Everton.

    Zaha, Barkley, Can and Sessegon.

    That would be the next 10 years sorted :rolleyes:

    Personally, (but what do I know) I'd like to see Shaw out on loan, playing regularly from January to May and if he looks solid and doesn't break down then I'd consider some sort of deal for him with Rose going the other way.

    How far has our squad come when I couldn't give a crap if we dont buy anybody in January.
    Never thought I'd see the day.

    Fkin media trying to palm Shaw off on us so Man U can pick away at our squad.
    Piss off.
    We need Shaw like a dose of the clap.

    Technically brilliant, physically and maybe mentally not ready for Premier League, I think. Probably, maybe like an N'Koudou upgrade.
