    He probably specified Right Back to set it apart form Ross Barkley

    Its not a RB, not Barkley. Don't think its a Wimmer replacement
    So, whoever this Italian or Serie-A player is probably wing forward - something I believe we are looking at. So, that would narrow down the list.
    a) wing forward from Italy -
    b) should suit club profile.
    c) Age is probably within 25 or 26
    d) sell on value for Levy
    e) Someone who isnt on huge wages and also transfer fee should be around 20m or 30m

    Thinking it aloud - Keita Balde, Schick, Gabriel Barbosa, Berardi, Chiesa,Cuadrado & Suso.
    Not sure if there are more such players...
    In this last two names are already poo pooed.

    Interesting. @THFCSPURS19 how many of the italians on your list (the list you made when Rob confirmed the answer had been guessed) were Right Backs? May help whittle it down somewhat.

    I wouldn't say it sounds like JJ is optimistic in regards the player from Italy. Hopeful perhaps, but certainly not expectant at this stage.

    5 out of 33. We're down to the Final 28.

    I hope the Italian doesn't roll around for 10 minutes every time he's tackled like the Roma players. :eek:
    Yea, narrows it down from 60 to 55, that should help. :rolleyes:

    Was it confirmed that it was a player from Serie A and not a player of Italian nationality? Must admit I stopped following the various 'Italian' ITK with all the blind guessing going on...

    Your age bracket is too narrow, mate. And several of those are beyond realistic, IMO.

    The Italian must either be a right wing forward / AMR, probably left footed. Or a centre back. But more likely the former as that's our most obviously understaffed position.

    Interestingly, the linguistic definition of pragmatic is almost exactly the opposite of the everyday definition. Why does SC always feel like being trapped in the black hole sequence in Nolan's Interstellar?

    I think it's a wide forward who was at the Euro U21s

    With that in mind my eggs are firmly in the Berradi basket. We have been interested for a while now for sure

    For me, the pragmatic comment means it's going well, but we've been close before numerous times only to be gazumped at the last knockings to be too confident about it until it's official. Just being realistic.

    I'd imagine all parties are keen but we aren't currently giving either club or player an offer they can't refuse yet.

    I have a feeling this is a pretty ambitious one to be honest.

    Anyone else think the way jj talks about the italian, the player is actually of italian heritage and not a foreign player in italy?

    That would make him an italian midfielder/forward, agree?
