Rashica, Cantwell, Watkins - all yes please. Still think it leaves us a striker light but if Samatta stays and Wesley is fit, the extra creativity might help.

If Jack does go, you need another wide option and a central midfielder on top of the above.

Buendia's stats from last season are impressive, and I suspect he will be less expensive than Cantwell. The latter will end up at Spurs or Arsenal (just my guess; no ITK there).

To be fair of the 2 I would be happy to have either, but I do like the way Cantwell wants to drive forward all the time. Both would improve our squad.

Shane Duffy available on loan. Celtic, West Ham, West Brom and Burnley interested.

I'd take him tbh. Experienced and we need someone like that alongside Mings since Chester couldn't start games any longer.

Not for me, but would be good for Celtic.

Hope not, plus his name wouldn't sound great in a Cockney accent.

EFL hub (no idea how reliable)

Reckon bid accepted for Cantwell.

Milk turns quicker....avoid. Smith wants a ball player at the back too which is the reason Duffy lost his spot at Brighton.

Surely all the goals we concede from crosses is more of a concern to correct? Even in the improved run at the end of the season we let in 5ft 7 in Theo Walcott ghost in at the back post to head in.

Getting in an aerially dominant CB alongside Mings should be a target for this summer. Duffy is much better than Hause for a start if we're on about ball playing CBs.

Duffy is excellent in the air but it wasn't the fault of the right sided centre back for that Walcott header either way. Being better than Hause on the ball is something every senior player at our club can boast, including the keepers!

Duffy has his uses don't get me wrong. Excellent from set pieces for and against, Mings is very average in comparison. But he doesn't fit our style of play at all. I think we could reintegrate Engels instead and have possibly a better Duffy type centre back.

Full backs who actually pressure & block a cross once in a while are more needed than Centre Halves imho

Seems quick and direct from his highlights reel. Almost 1 in 3 for Bremen is pretty good for a winger. Only 24 too.

Has anybody seen him play?

Saw 2/3 Bremen games after lockdown and got to say wasnt impressed (in a poor side has to be said) but there were enough good players in our league our Jack being one who looked bang average for most of those games so hopefully if we do get him he will be better than those performances.

Seems to be highly rated tho

I think he was carrying an injury as he kept on getting subbed around 60th minute mark. I agree he didn't stand out that much in their run in but had a fantastic start to the season and their form collapsed from November onwards.

Probably a bit like McGinn starting the season great and then dipping due to injury but we know the quality is there.

Absolutely, he is obv much better than those games, carrying a knock would explain a lot

Id love us to sign Cantwell. Hopefully Jack stays for a bit longer and eventually well have a ready made replacement.

I suspect there's little truth in the rumour but I wouldn't say no to Cantwell
