    Apparently Ousmane Dembele has been told to find a new club by Barcelona.

    Screams a Chelsea move.

    I can't see where they fit him in in their current set up.

    Yeah don’t think we will be signing him if anyone comes here in January it will be Kerim Demirbay who we have been heavily scouting.

    I would link ourselves but I don't think we can compete with Chelsea/afford him anyway.

    Isn't Demirbay a central midfielder?.
    That's the last area you need to strengthen considering you've got keita, Fabinho, Milner, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Lallana and Chamberlain who can all play their.

    You're one of the richest clubs in the world, I'm sure you can afford Dembele if you wanted him.

    Attacking Midfielder. Milner and Lallana are getting on a bit and Ox is injured.

    Perhaps. But the club chooses to set a budget and I think he's out of that budget. I know we had £160m cash at hand as of November 2017 but we've spent £70m of that since then leaving us with £90m. We supposedly bid £89m in the summer and it was rejected. So, in very bold and simplistic terms, he's out of our budget :shrug

    We'll see. We'll have more to spend come the summer but I think he'll be available in January. Other clubs are in stronger positions than us.

    I'm not surprised. He's looked crap every time I've seen him for Barca. Very poor decision making.

    Still very young though so obviously has a lot of time for improvement.

    Would have him in a heartbeat. Strange Barca have told him that, he was beginning to look a difference maker for them. Apparently he doesn't mix with anyone there so it wouldn't help.

    What? Really? He's looked very effective in front of goal from my viewing.

    He's never going to be a starter ahead of Coutinho. Just makes his purchase all the more baffling, especially considering they just got Malcolm.

    So, if Conte does actually get the Madrid job, what the **** does that mean for Courtois? :laugh: so much bad blood.

    I've probably only seen them 3/4 times this season to be fair, but whenever he comes on he looks like a selfish headless chicken who more often than not makes the wrong decision. He's only 21 though so I suppose that's natural. If he's focused (and not up his own arse, e.g. Pogba) he'll undoubtedly have a very good career.

    Dembele didn't do too badly at the weekend.

    Some sketchy reports they're after Roberto Martinez...

    Our local journo saying we're after Divock Origi in Jan. Apparently enquired after him in the summer but the price tag was too high.

    I don't think the Premier League have January sales..... price will probably be the same.

    Yeah I read that but I doubt we’d lower the price. You guys need a prolific goal scorer and he’s not that.

    Rumours that Beskitas want to send Karius back to us and want to take Origi instead (obviously not as a keeper although he would probably be a better one than Karius :laugh:)
