    There's a reason these guys are worth more now; they're PL proven talent. As good as Sessegnon looks he's only shown it in the Championship. Part of the discount you'd expect to get on a player like that is due to the added risk in not knowing how it'll pan out. For me £28m is high, but then again he's 16 and could turn into the next Bale. As long as it doesn't mean chucking Rose this window I'm OK with it.

    Is Graham Roberts actually ITK?
    Selling Rose would be a massive mistake. I will probably get shot down, but Davies is nowhere near as effective. He just never overlaps and lacks pace. We had no outlet down either flank today. I hope Roberts is wrong.

    Sign any one with pedigree. This would push opposition teams to defend deeper to enable the sorts of Kane, Eriksen and Kane more space and freedom.
    Martial(apparently) bid rejected.
    Balde and his entourage holding out for Juve
    Ryan Sessegnon will be a good signing but it will be too much pressure to expect him to come in and be a world beater for the entire season as young players are inconsistent and have dips.
    I would be amazed that this was not identified at the end of last season. I dont know of any targets but I would of thought with the astuteness of Poch this would of been 1 of the priorities for the coming season.

    Roberts could be costing us targets the way he's running his mouth in public, it's going to be an exciting week after all this positive itk

    The sheer sums involved for our targets is very surprising. There wasn't much indication at all from the club that we could be potentially looking to spend big. I know there will be outgoings but not sure the amount we receive will come close to the amount we spend. Sanchez cost £40m, Foyth will be £10m plus, it seems like Sessegnon is costing us close to £30m, Barkley will be £20m plus and we'd still have Aurier and a wing forward on our list it seems. We could end up spending well over £150m which makes me worried about what might happen with Rose.

    I think people had worked out that, if we sell Wimmer, we were up to +£100m. Sanchez was £26m up front (it seems), doubt RS will be more than £15m up front etc. Either way, Rose is about 8 months out now, non?

    You do realise we have only signed Sanchez? We won't be buying all your shopping list bud.

    It's not my shopping list. Have you seen the latest ITK? There's a clear indication that we are targeting all of these players

    Sorry, I get what you meant but without sounding the defeatist you do realise we get this every window?? Hopefully like the itk suggest we get them all but we can't sell rose because RS is never ready to play for us. Foyth won't get much of a look in either. We should be focusing on the forward speedster and cover for Tripps.

    Guys.., Any of youcomplaining about how the quoted "£28 million for Sessengnon" is too expensive needs to calm your tits.

    I never understood why fans get so caught up in the spending of their club. We're still about £25 million in the green this transfer window, we have the TV money to factor in & finally Daniel Levy is a fucking billionaire. If the man slightly overpays for a player, the club is hardly going to file bankruptcy or anything.

    Also, regarding Sessengnon, the lad's what, 17? There is almost no way that we wouldn't he able to sell him on for a profit unless he turns out to be as shit as Sissoko or something *shudders*. Of course, if he turns out to be the amazing player he may well turn out to be, £28 million will look like a steal anyway.

    Even if he is on the slightly expensive side, there's almost no way we can come out with a loss from this transfer, especially if inflation continues at it's current trend.

    (Also as someone mentioned earlier, if we are giving away this amount of cash, I'm more than happy Fulham is the club we'll give it to)
