What i would not want is Jack to go to one of "the big 4" and we get an assortmen. of cast offs or never will make its big time. at an inflated valuation to make us think we had done a "Bellingam" I would include Axel and Tammy in that category.

Just ref the big scary central midfielder, if Bournemouth and Watford go down they have a few to choose from.

Capoue and Doucoure at Watford and then Billing at Bournemouth.

I quite liked Chalobah at Watford but he seems to have been very quiet for a while.

Others from those teams are Ake, Lerma and Josh King from Bournemouth and then Watford have Craig Dawson (solid experienced CB), Andre Grey, Deulefeu and Sarr as attacking options.

I can imagine Ake, Sarr and Deulefeu costing the earth so Dawson, Capoue and King would be my picks if I had to - plenty more players in the world to pick from, just trying to rationalise who I think is decent from those two teams.

Norwich wise I think they are all gash, possibly Buendia would do a job but a bit of a show pony.

Axel yes (much as I like him).  But Tammy will move for big darts should Chelsea decide to sell, so a swap + cash adjustment there would be palatable.

I'd prefer it if Jack went abroad, but if it was to one of the top 4, better it be Chelsea or Man City than the other pair of wankers. Or Tottingham.  As a rule of thumb, anything that pisses on Yanited's chips and has the potential to turn Fergiescum even more purple is OK by me.

Dawson’s legs have gone..
Ake will have a lot of interest
Starr is one for the future and is very quick we really need some pace
King and Grey increasingly look like flashes in the pan.
I think Cantwell will be a good player. Aarans looks a prospect.
Dacourie I like, Billings just kicks people.

Yes to Cantwell, not sure about the rest, no to Tuanzebe, always injured. Unless you could get him for a Hause type bargain basement fee, or the equivalent thereof if he's part-exchanged, I think you'd get better value elsewhere.

If we need a new left back sign Liberato Cacace from Wellington Phoenix. Brilliant attacking left back and good defender. Still very young.

I don’t really care if he can play football, I’d sign him just for his brilliant name !!

I'm not keen on Cantwell. He looks ok but he has being playing in a very poor side. I'd look elsewhere.

I don't see what playing in a poor side has got to do with a players ability, Cantwell will leave for a hefty sum I reckon.

Bizarre argument. Surely looking good in a good team is a lot easier than looking good in a poor team? I'd only sign him if Grealish went, mind.

The dodgy hair argument wins it for me.

We're probably getting a bit (lot) ahead of ourselves here.  But yes, I think Cantwell, Buendia and Doucoure would all be good signings. Deulofeu also has quality.

I agree with Manic, I'd be surprised if there's not a few clubs in for Cantwell.
