Couldn't see another thread for this summers transfers. Quite a few already done.

Begovic to Bmouth
Bernardo Silva to Man City
Cleverley to Watford
Fletcher to Stoke
Zabaleta West Ham
Solanke to Lpool
Kolasinac to Arsenal

Liverpool also reported to the Premier League for tapping up van Dijk and their usual summer raid on Southampton. Sakho will probably end up going the other direction as a makeweight I expect.

£30 mill for a keeper that just got relegated... I just don't see it nor see why he deserves to command a fee. Sunderland must be laughing.

£30m...that's a lot of money! I've not really seen enough of him to know if that's good value or not.

I personally think it may seem high in the grand scheme of things but he'll be worth more than that in a few years. To shine out in such a poor Sunderland side takes some doing. He'll be Englands number one wouldn't surprise me at next year's World Cup.

To be fair, Sunderland gave him ample opportunity to shine. Similar reason Heaton has looked to good. On average they faced 18 shots per game, Hull 17. After that it drops to about 14 shots per game (8 teams between 13.6[us] and 14.6) Top 6 conceded the least shots at goal.

They said the same about Marshall (?) when he played for Cardiff. Truth is he was in a team when he had plenty of opportunity to shine. If Pickford is worth 30 million I wonder what Butland is worth?

Everton also interested in spending £26m on Klaasen from Ajax.

Spending the Lukaku money early and hoping the £5m Sandro is enough of a replacement?

Big gamble to pay that money for Klaasen, superb for Ajax but he's a similar player to Siem De Jong in terms of his style so it'll be interesting to see how he performs. With Eriksen you could see he had the quality to do well at this level.

Yes.

The English market is mental.

The only advantage to the mental market is nobody outside of the UK will pay £30m for Sakho, however any team in the bottom half can afford to stump up the cash and Liverpool can afford to hold anyone to ransom who does want him because any club in Europe will take him on loan on deadline day and pay his wages for them.

Also a good chance he's been completely overhyped and may struggle, especially now he has that price tag hanging around his neck

The guy spent the whole season shot stopping and picking the ball out of the net, Sunderland being awful is the only reason he got noticed.

Liverpool are banned from signing any academy players due to illegal approaches.

There is evidence that Liverpool have already been talking to Van Dijk to the extent they have issued a public apology and said they will no longer look to sign him.

Relations between the two clubs are not good.

If Liverpool end up getting Van Dijk this summer it will be either a ridiculous fee or Liverpool will be investigated for an illegal approach, which given they are already banned in 1 category is unlikely to go well for them.

See Chamakh and Sakho as recent notable examples.

Generally players are regulars at top clubs for a number of years because they've been identified as being quite good.

Assembling a good side no doubt, but like you say, it all falls apart if Lukaku leaves. Despite the improvements they are making elsewhere in the team, without someone to score goals, they will struggle - and a couple of unknowns (Onyekuru and Sandro) could just as easily be flops as hits!

They didn't look that dynamic last season, and whilst Klaassen may add something, without Lukaku you could be throwing a dart to pick their finishing position IMO.

Edit: The positive of this transfer is that it weakens Burnley - if they were to lose Heaton as well, I'd probably pick them for bottom!

I would say Everton are assembling a good workman like allround team, especially if they also add the Swansea lad and all accumulated with funds from the sale of Lukaku, that is what i call shrewd dealing.
Ok the loss of Lukaku will be huge and very hard to replace, but if they were to add Ihenacho along with the Spanish striker they have signed could be interesting, but possibly no better than a 6th place best position.

Overpaid for Ake (£20m ffs) and madness giving Defoe 3 years

good signings on paper but hopefully Howe runs out of ideas. They've done well since promotion but the media heaping praise on them for finishing top half seems a bit misplaced given the gap between them and 17th (6 points?). False position.

Compared to the business we did when we first came up, it looks very good. Ince is a good player and I think he'll do ok, Mounie and the Porto striker they have signed are highly rated. Mooy and Williams are good midfielders. I haven't seen Malone play much but they already have a very good German left back. Plus they have a great manager in the making.

Does Rooney strike you as the kind of guy who would settle in China?

His wages are such that Man U would probably jump at the chance to get him off the wage bill. Always thought that £250k plus a week contract would come back to bite them in the arse and they should have cashed in.

Ok it may be early in the window as far as Palace are concerned some may say, but whilst teams near the bottom strengthen we are yet to show our hand, in my opinion a dangerous strategy. Also what we hear is we will be looking at bargain deals with a very restricted budget i hope this is not the case, as any new manager does need a healthy budget so as to bring in players of his choice also being able to stamp his methods and system and that will cost money in this crazy market.
It is going to be an interesting few weeks ahead as to seeing what level of signings we bring in, as without doubt the First team needs FOUR new quality additions if we are to settle for a mid table position. If people are under the impression we have a good enough First Team currently and FdB is going to be our miracle worker, think again, we only just escaped relegation last season due to 2/3 totally unexpected results that in all reality none of us expected, next season we may not be so lucky.

Yes, it's highly likely Benteke has a magic number release clause written into his contract were we to be relegated, and it's unlikely to be anywhere near what we paid for him.

It would be good business at some point to sell him at a major profit with our blessing, should we by that point have a solid alternative wither in place or coming in.

If FDB's 'vision' comes to fruition, we will hopefully see a highly fluid team with quality throughout, rather than £20-30m players dotted amongst markedly less talented ones.

Swansea set 50 million price tag for Gylfi [emoji50]

Given he (and Llorente) effectively earned them £120m by keeping them up last season, I don't think that's an unrealistic valuation as to what he is worth to Swansea.

I would say that I think there are now two valuations for every player - what is he worth to his current club, and what is he worth to a new club. And a transfer will only happen if the latter is more than the former.

Zaha is probably a very good example of this - his worth to us is far more than what it would be to anyone else. Huddersfield signing Mooy is another example - £10m to other clubs is a big risk, but at Huddersfield, they know him, he fits in and enjoys it there, so £10m to bring in a key part of their promotion team permanently makes a lot of sense. No way was anyone else paying that for him.

Agreed, although budgets will also come in to play - certainly in that context, if our budget doesn't stretch to how much he is worth to Liverpool, it doesn't really matter that he is worth more to us than them!

FWIW, I don't believe he is worth £30m to Liverpool, and think that his worth to us is within our budget, so have fingers and toes crossed it will happen. But I also suspect that nothing will happen until after 19 August, unless there is 0% chance of him being fit!

15 million.

Is he even that good? I know he's capable of brilliance but he's so inconsistent and doesn't put a shift in. Have seen him have stormers and stinkers.

In this crazy market he's worth way over 15 million.

If his defending against us when we won 2-1 marks a £50M player then Ward has to be worth £15M.

Absolute madness. Surely it can't sustain these silly figures?

Swansea have rejected £40m bid from Everton for Sigurddson.

Has not travelled on Swans pre season tour to the States though as he is 'not in the right frame of mind.' Sounds like Swansea are resigned to selling him and will probably drag it out to get as much as they can.

Surely the Walker transfer is due to the premium that City pay for simply being City plus he's a England international. Adds 50%+ onto a players transfer value.

Chelsea deem Chalobah not good enough, so he's been offloaded. At the moment they are liking RLC so he isn't for sale. Make of it what you will

Chalobah hasn't really done it hence why Watford have got him and without any real competition apart from Championship clubs.

May have got themselves a real player there, but certainly as much chance he will be bang average... as a lot of English talent that drifts by the Chelsea pool turn out - because that is how we should be developing the countries best players of course :rolleyes:

What's all the excitement on here about Chalobah? He's had two reasonably successful loans to Watford and Forest both at championship level. Struggled at Burnley in the PL

It's all been a bit meh so far from what I can see.

Bonucci going to Milan for 35m is a shock. I know he is 30 but still seems cheap in today's market for arguably the best centre back in the world.

Milan have spent over £125m already this window, and tied Donnarumma down to a new contract. Little revolution going on there.

I had thought that Juve might have tried to poach Donnarumma as the long term Buffon successor, prior to his U-turn. Instead I think their dominance will end in the next 2 years (Bonucci was the youngest of their defence at 30...the others are on the wane) and there's a strong chance that Milan may become a driving force for the next 5-10 years. Hakan Calhanoglu and Andre Silva have the potential to become a very effective partnership (playmaker and striker, as opposed to a front two) up top for them.
