The Athletic have said we enquired about Memphis Depay earlier in the window but he wanted to join Atletico Madrid. At least we're being linked with a higher standard of player.

Right aspirations - not too bothered missing out on him as been patchy since leaving PSV

What ever happened to Joe Bryan? That glittering career at Fulham must have opened up all sorts of opportunities for him.

Currently enjoying the INEOS revolution at Nice along with half of yesterday's Premier League (him, Aaron Ramsey, Ross Barkley, Pepe from Arsenal, Kasper Schmeichel, Morgan Schneiderlin)

Nice - The Who's Who of Dropping Like a Stone to obscurity.

Ramsey played like a 50 year old in World Cup. Barkley - jeeps.

And players with pace. Bodes well for the future.

And while its a little frustrating that some players have turned us down, like Williams, if true, for example, but I can accept missing out on ten players if we are going after more of the same calibre of player as Kamara...

I think he is garbage - another Player that no one would of noticed if not for the media hype due to playing for the red filth

You think that the only reason people have noticed a player with over 40 international goals in 90 odd matches for one of the biggest footballing nations and was playing for Barcelona when we (apparently) asked about him, is a handful of games in the Premier League in 2015?

Right-o.

Apparently McKennie who didn't want to join us is joining Leeds Soccer Club

Never in for Mckennie this time around
Whether we were or not the media narrative was he wanted a bigger and more historic club than Villa.  If he then rocks up at Leeds it just shows how either he's had to eat humble pie or (far more likely of course) the media were talking shite.

I suspect, if it's true, he wanted to join his compatriots.

McKennie's dad went back and forth with an Arsenal supporter who said his limitations would see him struggle at the emirates. We don't need anymore protective dad's chiming in. I think he will do fine in this league, but I'd rather have Guendouzi.

Think so - he isn't the part just yet but he certainly could be

Him Ramsey a rejuvenated McGinn Kamara and Luiz - all of sudden that looks like strong team in Europa League midfield

Would rather go for Pulisic if Chelsea are offloading players

Noooope, way too similar to Buendia and looks like he's going to have a panic attack every time he gets near the goal

That's odd as he has been described on numerous occasions by Tuchel and team-mates as fearless in front of goal...and he is nothing like Buendia. Pulisic would be fantastic at Villa.

Most he's ever scored is 9 in a season, usually gets 4. Would you describe that in the same way?
Most assists in a season is 4. His numbers are really not great at all. The reason I see him as being similar to buendia is partly the stats, but also whenever I've seen him he seems to run around a lot, give the ball away a fair bit and get knocked over too much.

What is it that you're seeing?

Edit: Also - your quote about numerous occasions being described as "fearless" is LOLs

In the league he has 20 goals and 9 assists in 90 appearances for Chelsea when he joined as a 20 year old isn't terrible. When you add that 34 of those appearances are as a sub and account for just 6 of those. 16 in 56 starts for a guy who generally plays on the wing is decent.

He is a very talented player, a little concerned with his injury record more recently. When he first burst on the International scene he was like Grealish for us as he carried the national team
