Transfer rumours - Summer 2018

With Gomes out of favour and the Greek goalie keen to go back hope maybe not a surprise we are after a new keeper.

Least we've actually heard of this guy and has played in the Premier league!

I have told myself to stay away from rumour sites this window, and just wait a month and see what business we have actually "done". The rumour mills put us in the picture for every sub-£20m player that becomes available and I have to assume that the phrase "WFC are said to be interested in XX player" is no more than an assumption as GP would never leak any serious business until deal has become 90% transparent....
TBH - i think I might just fail to keep my eyes closed ! :?

Sounds like we are in for a new left back from Italy - lets hope he is a decent defender.

New right back in who can also play centre half.

Only 22 so not sure if he just be a squad player or compete for a starting spot .

Sounds like a good signing ? I like the fact we are looking at good youngish players rather than 29 year old journeymen ! Add in Massina hopefully and the defence is looking better. I wonder if Gracia and GP feel that our existing CBs can be effective this season with the right fullbacks in place, and therefore the new CB will back-up what we have ?
We still need a striker and maybe a Doucoure replacement if he goes, but things are looking up...

Just seen a funny quote on the WO forum !
Somebody stating that "It seems from reports in Italy that the Massina deal is off".
Took a look at the News Now site, and yes there is a statement in the italian press stating "Massina steps away from Watford deal" so I think this is what is being referred to ?
I don't think he is STEPPING AWAY from signing for WFC !! He is literally a few steps away from signing !!!
Well that's my take on it anyway ......... I had to laugh - but I am waiting for egg on my face ! :?

Jack Wilshere has announced he is leaving Arsenal on a free transfer (plus a high signing on fee no doubt)

Sound perfect for us - injury prone/inconsistent and a bit ill-disciplined.

Just a thought..... Maybe club is offering big bucks to Douc to stay with a promise of captaincy on top.? That might explain recent stance on Deene?

Danny Ings is reportedly looking for regular football. Worth a punt? Proven goal scorer.

I always confuse Mings and Ings tbh. Mings could be OK, I think we need a skilful and speedy striker as old fashioned target men like Deeney just don't work in the Prem any more. Deulafeu is a move in the right direction but we need an up and coming Kane / Vardy type to do the hard running in and behind.

Not much younger than Gomes and suffered a few mistakes/injuries so will fit right in!

This window just has the right feel to it IMHO. Over the last 4 years we have mainly brought in adhoc players hoping they might do a job. Last year was much better, but this time we really seem to be targeting players for specific positions and not aiming at the dregs bucket.
It sounds like Peneranda might stay with us this season, so we now just need to sort out the striker. What with TD, AG, and SO all seemingly on the verge of leaving, we could have quite a shake up in the strikers?

So.... Janmat probably leaving which makes sense, and now Sema joining must surely be a Riccie replacement? Good business as that will net a nice profit and Sema looks ideal for the Prem. Let's just hope Doucoure is staying as skipper!
I wonder if Gracia and GP have come to the conclusion that our strikers weren't our real problem, and that poor FBs And weak wide players meant we just weren't causing oppo teams enough problems in the final third?

Agreed, good little player but not strong enough for English footy and he looks like his legs would snap with any tackle. I think this one is a case of the money on offer for him makes it an easy decision? Shame though.....

So, it sounds like Riccie will be off as expected ? The £40m touted as expected fee sounds crazy, no way, but if we can get £40m in for Riccie and Pereyra then this sounds good business ? (Mind you maybe we will make Everton pay £35m for Riccie inclusive of our so called Silva comp ?)

My feelings on Riccie are that he is the "sulky type" as we saw last season and I don't think we would ever get the best out of him. So sell now for huge profit ? Where possible I just want players that really want to play for us and give their all ....
