Hojiberg has 12 months left on his deal at Spurs.

Think Postacoglu wanted to sell him start of the season but he showed a good attitude and has started a decent amount of games since xmas. Will probably start their next ones given how bad their midfield was at Newcastle.

Kamara won't be back until December so we need an experienced DM who can fill in start of next season.

Always rated Joachim Anderson, he gave a defensive masterclass at Anfield. Two years left on his deal at Palace.

Those two in and our squad would look really strong in most areas to combine a potential CL-premier league season.

Hojberg is shit and a twat, wouldn't want him anywhere near us, and he hasn't started a game since the start of February. I reckon there's absolutely no chance that Emery or Monchi will have any interest in him.

Andersen is ok but Palace is about his level, he's not consistent enough for a top 4 team to be interested.

Yeah if we signed those two I'd be pretty concerned tbh. Anderson is OK sometimes and for all his good defending against Liverpool they should have scored about 8 goals.
Hoijberg is shit and slow and has mostly only played to cover injuries for spurs

Concerned? They are reasonably top level players who can fill in and do decent jobs for periods until say someone like Kamara returns.

I presume Lenglet will go back. Done o.k at times, less well at others but if Barcelona want 20m + for him they're a bit deluded. Would be amazing if Mings could return and be as good as before but it's a very big ask given the injury he's suffered so a solid experienced CB is just what we need to come in for games here or there or mean we can revert to back 3/5 on occasions.

Tierney probably fits the most from what we need. LB who can also fill in as LCB and Emery worked with him for a few months at Arsenal who'll probably sell him for about 20m. Very injury prone though.

Again in an ideal world Digne stays for another season as he's been sensational but financially we might have to move him on.

I don't see us signing anyone currently playing in the PL, especially if it's to fill in until our first choice comes back from injury.

If it isn't him, it is a very good lookalike. However it is Diaby's shirt so he might just be taking the piss out of his old mate who missed out on a Champ winning medal (this year anyway).

There's been a lot of reports about us being interested in Denzel Dumfries with suggestions that if we get 4th spot, it becomes a lot easier to sell it to him.

He’s a decent player but doesn’t he mainly play as a wing back which showcases his attacking ability, not sure how he’d be as a conventional fullback.

Same with frimpong.  Good players but better suited to playing as wingbacks.

Frimpong and diaby looked awesome together in germany. Adding bailey in that would be one frightening team for other PL sides

The same would probably have been said about Moreno when we brought him in. Emery likes to play with one full-back that's more like a winger.

Frimpong would be great as the attacking fullback but that arguably moves the problem to LB where either Mings or Pau would having fulfil the Konsa role.

He's very short.

Might work in our favour.

Especially as Mings played a lot of his younger days as a LB...
