    That's not good!
    Translation: no one wants the poor Andre Gomes, not even Everton.

    Chelsea got Kovacic on a season-long loan – but there is no buy option. If he has a great season at Chelsea, it's Real who will rip the benefit. Win-win for them.

    He's 32 yrs old isn't he ? An improvement on Smalling/Rojo ? Just don't see it so let them buy him, better him than Maguire for sure.

    Given that Matip is made out of biscuits and we have varying question marks over all our CBs bar VVD, I really wish we could get in on this. He'd be a great loan for us. I thought he was easily Columbia's player of the WC.

    If we didn't have Gomez I'd agree for a perm deal only.. But a partnership of Gomez and Mina wouldn't fill me with much confidence.

    I'd rather spend the extra £10m on Toby A. We shouldn't be all over a loan though.

    Why would we partner Gomez with Mina? Why wouldn't you do a loan?

    All loans are not created equally. Mina is clearly better than these players. I actually think a loan makes perfect sense. We have a season to look at Gomez with proper quality to provide serious competition at CB. We might even see if we can include an option to buy if Barca don't want him back next season (and he looks like the boss I think he is).

    And say we get an injury to VVD/ Lovren etc. Would you prefer Mina and Gomez or Phillips and Gomez?

    Apparently Griezmann stayed because he was settled at Atletico and is best mates with Godin. There is little chance of Godin leaving.

    He’s a brilliant CB and easily better than Smalling and Rojo.

    Obv he’s not got long left tho.

    I love it when one of our youngsters breaks through. Obvs Klavan and Matip would be be ahead of a potential Gomez/Philips pairing though. Experience + Youth combo.

    You mean when they break through and succeed. Otherwise, based on probability, you ought to have winced each time a youngster came through in the last decade or so.

    It will make them that much more bitter when their goggles do nothing.
