Should we be impressed with a 40m deal for a fairly raw Eredivisie CB? It's hard to tell, but Sanchez was touted for bigger clubs at the start of the summer. Also our talent identification used to be great; Bale, Modric, Alli, Dier, Eriksen etc etc then has been weak the last couple of years. Hopefully Hitchen is getting us in the conversation for better talent again.
A thought that occurred to me too, jair. I read that he'd played less than 50 games since he joined Ajax last year for less than £4m. Yes he could be the next Toby, but he could also struggle in the PL. He wouldn't be the first.

I haven't read any of this, I've been drinking wine instead. If we have 3 signings to go, going by the itk at this very moment, who are they?

Messi, Draxler, and James Milner.

Nobody really gets why Milner but apparently we think he is a top bloke.

Seeing a few people say that Graham Roberts said it was a RB, a CM and a player from the championship (most likely sessegnon). Not sure if this is 100% true though, was anyone listening?
Yes, I listened. Not sure if I should post it here, fear A&C ban stick to stray away from ITK.

This is all of what he said - sounds like it's come from inside the club but pinch of salt I'd imagine etc

"There will be a minimum of three coming in this week. I have some good contacts at the club."
"There is one player from the Championship, that is gonna come. I am 99 percent sure that is gonna happen.
"There is a midfield player they have spoken to. They have all agreed to come."
"It is just about sorting out the figures for the clubs now."
"We got some money from players moving to other clubs the other day, not just Gylfi Sigurdsson but Paulinho as well
