Not sure, not many teams play with a big two up front nowadays. Also, her hours might make her unavailable for evening games.

Diego Carlos of Sevilla being linked in the Athletic.

That would be a proper upgrade. 29, so not a long-term option but if that's the market we're shopping in then it's very impressive.

What we appear be doing is a little like Juventus, who for many years signed free transfers for top players. The wages would be high but not immediate outlay on transfers. We can’t rely on that of course, and bringing in excellent young players from our academy is clearly important for us. But you put a Diego Costa in those side, even last season think how many more chances we’d have converted.

Wouldn't help the average squad age profile either.

Given that strategy is basically what has screwed Juventus, let's hope we're doing it a little better than them.

If that's the way we go I'd rather we make a big signing on fee and keep the wages lower if possible. That way we're not creating a new bomb squad of players on high wages that we can't move on.

The difference with Tarkowski is that he seems to both read the game well and has a good attention span. It is where he seems better than Konsa and Mings.

As a % of a market-value transfer, how much are these signing-on fees for Coutinho and Tarkowski? Up to 20-25% seems what is speculated. A nice pay-day for player and agent but you'd probably stomach it as the club paying it. Mbappe's is a lot closer to his actual worth, which is obscene.

That’s why it has to be balanced and not put all our eggs in one basket approach. Signing players intelligently as we have done with Coutinho and now Kamara, along with developing our own is how we should proceed.

Also said to be closing in on Rangers defender Calvin Bassey. Would make sense given he's a left-sided CB who can play at (act as cover for) left back. Haven't seen much of him but he looked good in the Europa League and Scottish Cup finals and a big unit.

I love it when we "step up" our interest. I'm sure it will cause Rangers to "brace themselves".

If we do sign Bassey, it’ll show the rest of the league that we’re real big spenders

reminded me of Micah Richard’s using his pace to get him out of trouble. Looked like the best of a bad bunch, potential but far from a 1st team player.

I bet he'd love to move south and play in Goldfingerlund.

Talented players coming from Scotland to establish Villa as the preeminent team of the era ... feels like a little bit of history repeating.
