A bargain, especially pleased as it will piss off the bitter baggies.

Giroud and Inter looks like it won't happen.Perhaps another ,like Barry jnr ,who will sign for a bigger club.

Striker that can also play left wing.

Just watched an interview with Mehdi Taremi and was left thinking it might be a step up too far for him. He seems very settled at Rio Ave, at least off the pitch, enjoying the simple, calm lifestyle, something he can relate to, coming from Iran. Not sure how he would react to the UK and PL. Maybe he's like a lot of strong, tough players on the pitch who are big softies off it.

Sky transfer centre just confirmed Giroud to inter is off because llorente is going to inter on loan.

The fee to buy giroud was 5 million plus 1 in bonuses.

Think he might eat humble pie and come her after all?

They made me see it a diffrent way in all honesty. They said for the entire year conte has been saying your coming to inter and he really wanted to reunite with him. Now inter have backed out and I dont think its conte's choice so now giroud has turned down us and olympiakos aparently because of conte's promises

The excitement of Tuesday night shouldn't hide the fact that we are still desperate for playable strikers. "Samagoal" by himself won't be enough. We have brought PL experience in with Reina and DD. We could do with some PL experience in the striker's role also. Let's not make the same mistake as we did in the summer and leave the striker's position wanting!

If we can get another quality striker in, I wonder whether we might look at going two up front with Grealish in a more central role just behind them.

This seems odd. Monaco demanding monies for Slimani, who's only there on loan? So say Sportwitness. Our 'bid' is insufficient, apparently.

Might be fees attached to ending the loan early. 

They might also have paid a fairly hefty loan fee to take him in the first place.

Brendan Rodgers did say it was a complicated situation regarding Slimani. My guess would be that if Monaco have paid a loan fee up front they will want some money back if they are to agree to the loan being cut short.

Inter Milan, in contention for the league or Villa trying to stay in the league. As a neutral you'd choose the former.

Chelsea as. A it part player maybe finishing 4th,or Villa as a potential hero staying in the Premier League? different proposition.

Hull appear to be almost openly touting Bowen now. We should be in there before he gets snapped up elsewhere. If I had the choice between Bowen and 6 months of Murray for example, or Giroud on his own, I'd take the Bowen and Murray route. We need 2 more forward options to see us through.

Re. Slimani, surely his ultimate destination has to be up to Leicester, he's their player after all, and therefore levels of any loan fees etc. would be set by them? I get that there are probably distinct clauses within a lot of loan deals, but I do find it hard to believe that you can sub-loan a player out.
