    Player watch: Christian Eriksen

    I wish him all the best. Hopefuly he can reignite his inner fire though, as last few months he was completly out of form mentally. It reminds me a bit of Sanchez situation, when he left mid-season to United, while he was out of form for 6 months prior to the transfer. Eriksen's younger and...

    Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg

    I wouldn't be surprised if it happens in the summer. As it stands, our 25 man roster is full (well, we could leave Wanyama out I guess) and striker is higher priority. I'd be fine with him for the right price though, no way Soton sells him for less than 50m in this window

    Exactly, reminds me of Leicester's Pereira deal

    Player Watch - Steven Bergwijn

    This is the most crucial part I think. With playmaking ability of Alderweireld and only Dele making runs in behind, we're missing one more player who can burst into long balls Toby's launching.

    He's Zaha-type player with flair and pace, but five years younger and for half the price.

    At quoted 30m it's a steal.

    Player Watch: Serge Aurier

    When Walker was one of our best players we've had Trippier who was playing really well (better than the last season with us) pushing him to be better. Right now Aurier has no competition, so a) he's overworked, plays most of the matches and has to run a lot b) has no real competition

    It's clear that we need a striker. While in Poch's system we might have worked with Son or Lucas playing there, right now we're screaming for one.

    Anything over 10m would be a great deal for us as for now.

    Player watch: Christian Eriksen

    It's bit different though. Rose, despite his comments from few years ago, got a bad injury and it seems like he's lost a fair bit of pace because of it. He's just slower, and despite not being as fast as Walker, his pace was one of his bigger assets. Basically it seems he's just not good enough...

    Player watch: Christian Eriksen

    There's a reason why anyone, let alone Inter, would pay around 20m for Eriksen. First of all, let's see some of the players that had 6 month of their contracts. Let's see two cases: Barkley. We were interested. We didn't want to sign him in the summer as he was injuried. He went for 15m to...

    Nemanja Matic

    This one makes perfect sense. With rumors of us spending big on few players, Jose's history with Matic and experienced players, and his faith in Dier (and there's still a chance he'll come good), Skipp (who needs just a bit more experience, maybe a loan, but he's shown promise), stop gap...

    Player watch: Danny Rose

    Or maybe it actually makes sense? Poch said it'll be "painful" summer, looks like we're going to sell two of our "senior" fullbacks and replace them with young, unproven players (Kwp/Foyth and Sess). Not saying they're ready or that I agree with the clubs' decision, but young players won't ever...

    I'm not saying it's a possobility but if they want McCarthy they might want Wanyama.

    Player Watch: Giovani Lo Celso

    it actually makes much more sense, we buy a player as we need to strenghten squad, Eriksen's most likely destination is Madrid anyway so if they wanna get him we'll just ask for cash and Ceballos
