All these prices will come down the closer the end of the transfer window. Championship clubs particularly need to balance the books with no matchday income for the foreseeable future.
this applies anywhere unless we suddenly reopen 100%

Apparently according to SSN Brentford want £25M for Watkins and same for Benrahma.

We have mostly seen flashes of Benrahma & Watkins. But having watched 90mins of them both in the play off`s i am extremely underwhelmed with particularly Benrahma. Watkins is worth a punt at 18m But the big step up to the prem i feel would be to much for Benrahma who cannot rise to the biggest game in his career. From a crowdless wembley to a full house at old trafford is a massive leap ..........

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.

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

Brighton are ridiculously stacked at CB. They've also got Clarke coming back from Derby who had a good season in the championship.

Said before but I'd take Shane Duffy for 5-10m to give us that bit more experience at the back now Chester has gone.

Have seen Duffy play countless times for Ireland. Wholehearted sure and a big physical presence. Last ditch blocks and goal line clearances. Like Mings in a lot of ways. Also a threat at set piece time which Mings isn't.

However, his positional sense is very average, hence the last ditch stuff. Very limited on the ball hence why he lost out at Brighton this season. Also petrified of playing a high line, likes defending from the 18 yard box. If we had gone down he would have been an ideal signing. But don't think he would fit for what Smith wants next season. Will probably go somewhere like Burnley or Newcastle and do very well for them.

I would sell AEG, we may get a decent bid from a championship side.

I think out of all the names mentioned in the last few pages, probably Abraham is the only one I’d be prepared to splash serious money for. Tried and tested with us in the championship, so we know what he’s all about. Backed it up with Chelsea last season in the Prem. He wouldn’t be cheap though.

I hope we do better than Tammy.

Seen Mings linked to Man Utd today, if that happens we should take Tuanzebe as part of the deal.

Gone quiet on the Grealish rumours so hopefully he is staying put.

Not seen much of the Celtic striker Eduard, but we seem to be linked a lot lately. Is he any good?

No to Benrahma at the touted prices, given Brentford enough money lately! Would rather Buendia who showed good form in the top division and is touted at far less cost.

Maybe Mings has been linked to Man Utd just because Man City have just bought a centre half who looks like him. Lazy journalism again most likely.

They're both left-sided centre-halves, of which there aren't many in the PL, and that appears to be what Yanited are in the market for

Ok, resembles him then.

Tuanzebe is injured again, again we'd get fleeced on the price. He's worth a few million tops. I seriously dislike having centre backs that are in and out of the team through injury as it disrupts the defence too much.

Has anyone mentioned Chris Smalling? Apparently United want £20m for him but Roma couldn’t come up with that in order to make his loan there permanent.  Would offer PL experience and quality. He has supposedly had a great year in Serie A.
