James Justin at Leicester can play both left and right full back and would suit the style and be a decent squad option. 25 years old.


Liked him when he first got to Leicester…before horrible injuries…is he back playing now?
Yes he's been back playing championship.
Thought likes of him , Ndidi and Iheanacho would have moved.
They would do fine in Prem squads.
No wonder they are comfortable top.

A year or two ago, I would have said James Justin is a decent call. But we must becoming more and more attractive to a higher standard of footballer. Even just this week you would think there will be top players who would have turned us down now starting to be more open-minded about moving to us.

I think Asensio and Felix would be coming if we were champions league next season.
I really can see us bringing in that high calibre of player.
Likes of Justin is below that level of course but to me an upgrade on Chambers and has higher potential than Cash
It's not an upgrade though in calibre but in player development it could well be.
I much rather have right back like Hakimi or Dumfries. Frimpong of Leverhausen would be very welcome too.

There were links and rumours of interest in Ziyech, Sancho, Johnson, and Harrison over the summer.
A wide player appears to be a priority perhaps, and Emery would most likely enhance all of these players, all of whom have Premier League experience but think we'll be looking at higher level.
Signing Zaniolo was a short-term deal based on Monchi familiarity. He hasn't progressed so remains to be seen but Monchi has had time to focus on bringing quality additions who will enhance and fit the style, and being in the top four is fantastic for negotiating deals and attracting players.

Monchi and Emery are ambitious just like the owners they would have planned and outlined what's needed to sustain and progress to the end of the season.
It will be an exciting window for incomings I'm sure of it!

I'd take Emile Smith-Rowe, good player and was strongly linked a couple of windows back.

Like Johnathon David, gone off the boil a bit at Lille but has all the attributes to do well in the Prem.

Would also take Phillips from Man City. Good player.

Too right he can, struggling to think of a less appropriate signing based on attitude.

Happily sat on his arse doing fuck all for two years.

No, ta.

Anyone we sign in January, it is essential they have the right attitude to fit in with the current squad. Scooping up money whilst doing nothing for Man City puts a player at the bottom of the list for me.

As talented as he is as a player, that's precisely the opposite of the type of personality we want or even need. So fuck him. He had his chance. Same as that money grabbing prick Asensio.

He’d be too much in January but I really like what Solanke offers as a second striker. He’s big, strong, good eye for goal and puts in a proper shift.

Phillips falls into the same category as Mount for me. I'm sure he'll go and do well for someone but we don't need anymore projects in the squad. He's barely played for the best part of 2 seasons. For comparison, Carlos  played only 90 minutes less for us last season than Phillips did for Man City.

If he's still there in the summer, maybe, but in January it's a no.

I don't really see Mount fitting in to the way we play, but Phillips would.  Doubt they would let him come to us at the moment though.

Are there any wiley strikers in Europe aged 31-35 who have been there and done that, and would be happy to give Ollie a breather/assistance when called upon?

I don’t think for a second we could/would spend the cash required to get Mount, but I think he’s an example of the *type* of person we should be looking at, regardless of position.

He doesn’t seem to have stand-out eye catching qualities, but multiple managers persist in picking him, due to his willingness and ability to implement a game plan/tactical instructions.

We have a first squad capable of competing at the top of the league now, so anyone coming has to be a team player, and most importantly, be willing to do the work that Emery will require from them without being an asshole in the dressing room.

Danny Ings? 😂

Would have been the perfect time to get Suárez wouldn't it? Maybe he would if you said he might have a chance of getting that PL medal he missed out on.

Benteke?

Javier Hernández doesn't have a club atm. 35, scores goals and has won a couple of Premier Leagues.
