    Guess it's easy to tell I'm bored. :p

    Question: who do you think we should sign? If you choose others, who (realistically)?

    One of those who are proven in the league - Tielemans or Bissouma.

    Voted for Bissouma, Locatelli looks like a no-go (seems destined for Juve).

    Maybe Bellingham and Gravenberch can be added.

    I think people are misreading the OP question as who WILL we sign as opposed to who we SHOULD sign.

    My bad. If it's who we WILL sign, I would have voted no one too. :oops:

    Slightly surprised Neuhaus has a fair number votes so far. Is that still the choice for voters who misread the question?

    Very split for choices,

    Except for Gravenberch and Renato of course.

    I think Neuhaus is the best option of the bunch, at least in the short-medium term, so I voted for him. I've been impressed with Bissouma too, he could be a good like-for-like replacement for Gini.

    There's nobody I'm against on that list. Neuhaus has the creative element that we're lacking when Chamberlain/Keita are out of action, so he makes the best sense to me. We have to consider that Henderson will become more of a holding midfielder as he ages, so adding the most creative midfielder makes sense.

    Gravenberch looks very Pogba-esque in terms of his talent level. More of a project, but looks an exciting player.

    Listening to a James Pearce podcast yesterday.

    Highlights:
    • we're actively looking to add a midfielder and an attacker, but no deals imminent yet. Everything hinges on sales.
    • Of the mids, Bissouma and Renato Sanches are not targets. Tielemans also highly unlikely to be a target given his price.
    • We're more interested in Neuhaus, McGinn and Saul
    • Malen is unlikely because he wants to play regularly, and might not be interested in being the 5th choice attacker at Liverpool
    • Nobody seems interested in Origi, and Origi doesn't seem particularly interested in moving.
    • There is interest in Grujic, Wilson and Shaqiri, and it's a question of getting the right price for them.
