Summer 2024 Transfer Thread

One thing to consider this summer, we probably have a lot of players who would generate close to 100% profit. 
 

I’d be surprised if we still owed Roma anything for Mo. 

 

We will certainly have made all payments to Charlton for Gomez. 
 

No idea on Carvalho but we didn’t pay much for him, so again, a good profit margin.

 

Given he’s been here 4 years, I assume the majority of Tsmiskas’ fee has been paid to Olympiakos. 

 

Anybody from the Academy will be 100% profit (Keheller, Morton etc).

 

Not overly keen thinking this way, however, like Solanke, Ibe etc, we could see some impressive sales.

While the real cash will be paid amortisation never really disappears until the player leaves on a free transfer, your point still stands though because lots of the players will have amortisation values that are negligible as they get re-apportioned as the player signs a new contract.

 

Salah accounts for about 2.5m of the 107m amortisation having signed in 2017, a new deal in 2018 and then a further extension in 2022.

Agree on both points 1 and 2. 

 

It's lazy to assume Slot will be a attracted to Dutch players, but someone like Frankie De Jong would be interesting and Barca always need cash.  

I'd even consider a swap for Darwin and Lewandowski.  

Yeah , I'd consider swapping my wife for Carol Vorderman , but unfortunately it ain't going to happen.

The signs are all there for a massive talent. 

 

The signs that read "J. Bellingham"? 

 

Those signs may mislead.

I’ve never seen Kubo player, his physique looks like that for a 14 year old boy.

 

Like Aspas & Alberto, he might be a talented footballer, if you can’t match the physicality, you won’t make it in the Premiership. 

Saka is no Charlie Atlas

Callum Hudson-Odoi? 
 

As a squad option? Was a hot prospect for a while and was being linked to big clubs like Bayern Munich. Then it all went a bit quiet for him. Injuries? Lack of form? Attitude? Not sure. 
 

Seems to be getting back to some decent form with Forest. 7 goals in 15 Premier League appearances. Could be a shrewd addition if he can be signed for a low fee. 
 

EDIT: the above stats were incorrect. 7 in 27. Still a decent-ish return for a team like Forest though.

Not for me. Each time I've watched forest, he has underwhelmed. They've a funny thing there where they have a few players with him, elanga and our 2 ex forwards who have been 2nd fiddle or worse at the big clubs. I think he's dead on his level.

There was a kid at Feyenoord on loan from Newcastle, Yankuba Minteh, who was very dominant statistically this season. If Newcastle want to make a bit of money, he would be a bit of a project that Slot has already worked with. If we wanted to do something like that.

They'll lose Guimarães when someone pays the release fee and probably sell Callum Wilson, that will free up loads of room on FFP. This is the sort of kid they will build round. They have Gordon on the left and stick this guy on the right. They'll be a far better team next year, as will Chelsea

A mate of mine is a Forest fan and says Hudson- Odoi is quite the one-trick pony - cut in and score a worldy; all of his goals have come that way. He's far too limited for us, an English Shaqiri.

Sounds like his name is actually Mint and then signed for Man City.

This based on an actual storey or a random thought?

 

Either way, my answer would be no thanks. I don’t think he’s as good as what we have.

Not sure how losing your best player and possibly Isak as well, will equate to being a better side next season. 
 

Same with Chelsea. After Palmer, Gallagher seems to have been one of their better players this season, however they seem intent on selling him. 
 

Seems to be like both clubs need to take steps back to take steps forward…

For no reason this morning, I’ve woken up wondering if we’d be open to selling Konate.

 

Again, a really good player, I genuinely like him. When he’s at his best, he’s excellent. When he’s not though, there is a mistake in him. Given his injury record, we never see his best enough. 
 

I really didn’t like the was Calvert-Lewin bullied him in the derby. It was a brainless performance, the likes we’ve saw with Lovren v Kane or Skrtel v Deeney / Ighalo. 
 

His contract runs out it 2026, he’ll likely be angling for a new one, and a pay rise, next season. Is it worth it or would we cashing in?

I was there with you for Alex Scott last summer and I’m here with you for this. If only for the “Sign Bellingham” nostalgia bantz.

van Dijk is old, plus has an uncertain contract situation and then Matip is going. We arent also going to sell someone who is going to be entering his prime age.

Maybe not, I’m unconvinced he’ll see out his career with us.

I mean, see out his career is definitely a stretch, but willingly selling him soon is also hard to believe. I will say, if PSG offered up a lot of money, he would go for sure.

I just don't feel we can rely on him. It's striking how defensively strong Arsenal have been with the same 2 centre backs every game plus White alongside. 

 

We need the same continuity and understanding at the back with defenders having complementary skill sets.

 

Konate doesn't have the fitness record or consistent performances to count on him being the answer.

 

One thing I've noticed this season is how every other fucking team seem to make crucial blocks against us while we concede so often from cutbacks with our players standing around watching. A smaller, athletic centre back alongside VVD or Quansah who can read the game, make blocks and organise the defence would make all the difference. 

 

Marc Guehi could fit the bill although he's also had injuries this season. For me, a new centre back and defensive midfielder should be top of our transfer list this summer, I'm sure a new manager can find the goals with our current personnel but we must improve defensively.

I think this is part of it. I also just don't think we're that well drilled defensively. Our shape without the ball is all over the place, as evidenced by our keystone cops style defending whenever other teams have the temerity to run at us (the goal we conceded against Palace was a perfect example of this). As a team, I just don't think we get back into a defensive shape quickly enough when possession is turned over.

Our recent defensive issues are more structural rather than individual and a consequence of the risk /reward elements of what we and the other elite teams do, if you don’t get it right in possession.

 

We,ve conceded 5 more goals than Man City and that was pretty level until a couple of weeks ago. 
 

Can we be better defensively yes, but our issues are overstated. We rarely concede set pieces. 


If anyone thinks we’re gonna be racking up the clean sheets then they’re going to be disappointed, modern football isn’t like the era where Rafa and Mourinho were the games top coaches.

True, but I think the goals conceded stat is a bit misleading. How many teams do we face who are happy to sit back and hope the game is settled either way by the odd goal? Whenever teams do attack us, they invariably score.

Klopps whole ethos is on pressing/winning it back in that period of transition and he has always been happy to let attackers run at our two CB's.
