I was surprised when he made the move to Russia and will have to admit that apart from seeing in the national team I have seen next to nothing from him. In the national team he was favored by Blind and played a lot, most of it from the wing. Did not really perform that great but the whole team frankly is struggling. I would not dare to give a verdict as I have little no to insight in the strength of the Russian League. What I would say is that I think in attack we should be looking first for a player who can play centrally behind Benteke as well as ideally upfront himself if the latter is not playing. And that is after spending money on defensive players (CB/RB)

Do you think Quincy Promes can replicate a similar amount of goals if he joined a prem side? How he rated amongst the Dutch squad.

Appreciate the insight

Trying to find the most appropriate post to simply ask where we truly stand in transfer market at the moment? Too many other Premiership clubs
seem to be busy and successful in recruiting new faces....

FDB will make an assessment on whole squad before dipping into market.

Fair point- senior moment meant that I had glazed over that realisation. Just not wanting CPFC to get left behind within the transfer stakes...

Realistically with our budget I think that we would need to bring in some loans / frees. The squad was already struggling due to a lack of quality depth last year, and since then Kelly, Flamini, Remy, Campbell and Ledley have left and need replacing. Dreher and Kaikai seem to be the only youngsters who are likely to get significant pitch time.

Would be happy with any of the following on loan, and think they would be realistic:

Zouma
van Ginkel / Chalobah / Loftus-Cheek
Chambers / Fosu-Mensah (cover at both RB and CB)
Ings

I would add holger babstuber recently released by Bayern Munich , Sagna available on a free. Potential defensive mid option Thiago motta (released by psg) all have big game experience. Even g.rossi as a 4th choice centre forward. There's plenty of additions squad player need to complete our squad.

Badstuber and particularly Rossi have had injury problems for years, struggling to even play 20 games a season.

Would be very happy with Sagna and Motta. Definite upgrades on Kelly and Flamini!

But would we want more than 20 games from Rossi. In my view he'd be replacing Campbell as 4th choice.

Rossi last 2 seasons

Levante 17 games 6 goals
Celta. 18. Games. 4 goals

He's not prolific but a 4th choice that happy to train hard and give their best when called apon. Hardly gonna break the bank either.

I can see us holding out until nearer the end of the window and Liverpool will drop the asking price on Sakho. I remember in the January window Liverpool said he would not be loaned out until the last couple of hours where they were happy just to get his wages off the books. I think there will be a mural deal of around 22-24 million. With that said I'll go for
Tete 3million
Sakho 23million if not zouma on loan or chambers permanent
Delph under 7million. Is available at city and bring massive energy to and ageing midfield, just a couple years ago he was starting for England.
Then I think we need a real number 10, a creative player who gets us off our seats and a free or cheap third choice striker behind benteke and wickham
