If Watkins has more movement than an asthmatic tortoise, then heís an upgrade on Rudy.

Still need to be linked with a top quality midfielder.
We canít be continuing with SJM, Dougie and then one of Hourihane/Nakamba

Apparently Gueye is going to leave PSG and Wolves are interested.

Bring him home-ish.

Absolutely agree. How are the others from that intake doing? The left-back and the midfielder who went to Italy?

Veretout was really good for Fiorentina and was pretty good for Roma last season. He's just joined them permanently for Ä16m.

Amavi is doing fine for Marseille. Playing every game, they were second when Ligue 1 stopped.

Amavi pretty much ever present for Marseille, who finished runners-up the season just gone.
Veretout played 32, scoring 6, for Roma as they finished 5th.

Wasnít the brief for a proven Premier League striker? Is Ollie Watkins really going to come to play as a 2nd or 3rd fiddle centre forward?

Quick, direct and can play across the front three. Ticks a lot of boxes for us. If Tammy isn't gettable, Watkins would be a decent alternative. Not sure if Brentford could be mugged off to take one or more of our deadwood as part of the deal (Jota, Hogan, Lansbury come to mind).

Thanks guys. I couldnít remember their names but I remembered they were fucking good players. Shame about all the other mugs they had to play with.

I know nobody has actually moved yet but all the talk about fees being reduced because of COVID seem wide of the mark.

Norwich looking for 20m for each of their young defenders is pretty eye watering.

£20m is the new £5m.

Brighton will apparently want £35m from Leeds if they want to take 22yo Ben White permanently, but only if Dunk doesn't leave.

Not so sure. If we were to sell Konsa, I'd be disappointed with less than £20m and he has a similar background - one season in the Prem after impressing in the Championship.

Is it Aarons and Lewis they're quoting that for? Aarons has impressed me the few times I've seen him.

Get Abraham and Watkins and have Wesley available too, and the job is done upfront.  Trez, AEG also available on the bench. Offload Samatta.
Bring in a couple of MF (Bunedia and EZE for me) and a LB - job done.

Mind you , that Ben White looks a proper player

I'd swap one of your midfield choices for a big unit of a defensive midfielder but other than that, that would be a great transfer window.

Watkins at £18m seems a no brainier.  He and Wes can duel it out for the central striker role.
That leaves £40m for a pacy right winger and another £40 for an athletic CM.

Watkins is insurance policy but the two £40m players should significantly improve the first XI.

Loans can fill the other areas where we need depth and options.
