Premier League Transfer Window 2016

Recommended Posts

With the window now open, which players would you like to see coming to your club? Which ones do you want to keep & which would you be happy to get rid of?

Any really big signings likely this January?

 

 

I'll start with Swansea.

 

Departures:

Unfortunately, looking likely that Shelvey will leave. One of our best midfield players. When the Chairman met with the players after sacking Monk, Shelvey stood up to him and they had a blazing row. Shelvey has hardly been picked since & didn't even travel to Manchester. Plenty of clubs will want him and he'll be a loss.

 

Lots of reports that Gomis may leave. There were similar reports last January and in the Summer and he stayed. A couple of Middle East clubs are meant to be interested in him. If he goes, he won't be a loss - other than we don't have anyone else.

 

A couple of fringe players & youngsters may go out on loan.

 

Arrivals:

A striker is obviously a priority. Ideally, more than one. A centre half would also be helpful, as would a full back.

Curtis has said the club identified targets some time ago but no names are really being linked yet.

On past form, the club is more likely to look at foreign players from overseas for not too much money. I'll be surprised if our total spend is more than £10 million.

It may be a loan player from another PL club will also be signed.

 

No sign of a new manager being appointed and unclear if it's going to happen anytime soon.

 

This is the most important transfer window for the club since we were promoted. Especially as the transfer business last summer was so poor.

This is the worst season to get relegated because the new TV deal is kicking in. Can see a lot of the struggling teams panic spending because they will be desperate to stay up.

We'll see if Wenger actually spends any money this time with the title race being so open.

 

Not sure if the Big 3 will splash out this time?

Chelsea have a temporary manager but Abramovich may still be willing to spend? Looks possible that Costa may leave.

Man Utd may be reluctant to let Van Gaal spend as his position is so uncertain.

Man City may prefer to wait until, as looks likely, Guardiola takes over in the Summer.

 

Leicester will be hoping they can hang on to Vardy & Mahrez.

 

At the bottom, Villa seem to have given up & the owner wants to sell. Can't see them spending.

Sunderland owner doesn't like to spend but Big Sam will be twisting his arm.

Newcastle owner is a tosser. Can't see them spending too much either.

Norwich will be willing to spend but made poor signings the last time they were in this position.

Bournemouth spent in the summer but they got injured. Not sure they have the funds to spend again - especially as they've just been fined under Financial Fair Play rules.

West Brom will be looking to bring a couple in, especially if Berahino goes for a decent fee.

 

Of the others, Palace may look to spend. Spurs rarely do in January. Klopp will want players - I assume he was promised funds when he took the job?

Mane was dropped today for disciplinary reasons. Rumours he handed in a transfer request

Liverpool contacted Barcalona about G ter Stegen.

I think Barcalona would only do it for enough profit that allows them to bring in another backup G and striker.

The rumour mill is over now we will see what & who is going to get on it.

 

Every team needs additions IMO.

 

Should be interesting.

Arsenal signed Egyptian holding midfield player Mohamed Elneny for £7.3 million from Basle (subject to medical).

Meant to also be interested in French midfielder Adrien Rabot from PSG - valued at £15 million.

 

Has Wenger been visited by the ghost of Christmas future?

Wenger will not splash the cash because I believe that Kronke (club owner) is happy with Wenger to maintain a place in the top 4 as this guarantees large revenue streams and profit.

 

Just look at their poor champions league record, despite having almost £200m in the bank.  If they really were ambitious then additional world class players would have been signed as they have the funds to purchase almost any player win the world.

They pinned their hopes on financial fair play, being fair big money was splashed for Ozil and Alexis. The frustrating thing is the reliance and blind loyalty of eternally injured players...Wilshere,Arteta, Diaby & Rosicky....perhaps Welbeck now added to the list. All these and the wages amassed limit new signings. Cech the only senior signing in the summer???!! Hence the bargain basement panic shopping in January.

Snoozefest so far.  EPL's huge money resources isn't worth crap right now.  Unable to pull any of the talent away from the big clubs in Europe.   Is it the weather or the food?

The big clubs tend to make the big signings in the Summer now, though there may be a surprise or two.

Window more important for the clubs at the bottom. Crucial for some of them.

Bournemouth have spent £17 million on 2 strikers already.

Newcastle agree a £12m fee with Swansea to sign Jonjo Shelvey, @BBCWalesSport understands.

 

So, our first business of a crucial window for the club is to agree to sell one of our better players to a relegation rival because the bloody Chairman doesn't like people standing up to him. FFS!
