Summer transfer, gossip, speculation thread

Completely depends what division we are in.  I guess they are planning for both and also have FFP to consider if in the Championship. Plenty of players out of contract, Frederic Guilbert already on his way in. Mike Van Der Hoorn and Leroy Fer already linked from Swansea.

First of all see how many of the loan players we can sign permanently or loan again - I'd have any or all of them no matter which division we're in - Mings, Hause, Tuanzebe, El Ghazi, Tammy.

Then the priorities have to be another striker, a left back and a younger version of  Glenn Whelan. If we're in the Championship a creative replacement for Jack as he'll almost certainly be off, if we're in the Premier a sub of the same type so we're not so dependent on him.

IF we go up would love Daniel James from Swansea, exactly the sort of player we should be targeting.

Absolutely dependant on if we go up, but all of the loan guys.

Butland, Reece James, Tierney, Chalobah, Kalvin Phillips, Lolley, Daniel James are the type of player I'd be looking at.

If we go up, Id have a look at that left back from Fulham. Then tell the little bastard to enjoy life in The Championship!

After putting him through a medical and sitting him at a desk with a contract to sign.

I like Hause but he does seem a bit injury prone. Same with Tuanzebe. I'd be happy loaning either, but not so sure about parting with ten million quid or so.

Tuanzebe is still raw and has injury troubles, wouldn't be paying any more than 4.5m for him.

Wasn't the fee mentioned when he signed about 5m?

Would take a chance on that price, good at left back, still work in progress at CB.

Surprisingly, Hause looks a better player to me than Axel. Both injury prone though - AT's two seasons with us have both been significantly disrupted by injuries.

I'd definitely sign Hause, Mings and El Ghazi, probably 10-12m for the lot is a bargain. Tammy would probably be a bit expensive (and may well not be available anyway given the transfer embargo at Chelsea) and whilst I like Tuanzebe I'm not convinced he's fit enough to play regularly at that level.

Other than that I trust Smith to sign the sort of players I'd want (Guilbert looks the part from what I've seen) and I'd hope he doesn't go mental, 3-4 first team players and 2-3 to develop for a few months is about the most we should be going for this summer because signing 10-12 players and trying to almost create a new team just doesn't work.

We will need to sort out the defensive midfield player to play with Jack and SJM, left back and right winger for me.

End of contract; Jedinak, Whelan, Richards, Hutton,  Elphick,  Bunn, De Laet,

Sell: Lansbury, Bree, Hogan, Kodjia (I'd keep him but I think we will get offers), BB, Taylor.

Likely offers:  Grealish, SJM?
