Well this time last year we were saying goodbye to Giroud and hello to Aubameyang, which turned out a great bit of business. Today we could see 2 coming in and 2 going out on loan.
1st in should be Denis Suarez, who Barcelona said was a done deal last night on thier website only to pull it an hour later. Likely reason is the paperwork wasn’t completed at the FA yet. The deal is said to be a loan until May with us having 1st option to buy.
The 2nd player maybe Carrasco maybe Perisic. Now I hate transfer speculation and people pretending to know whats going on, even if like everyone else I have a little gossip and talk bolloxs with my mates in private. One thing is for sure tho Emery want’s 2 players in and wants 2 players who can play as wingers. The 2nd player is also highly likely to be a loan till May with an option or an agreement to buy.
Again going on what I have read atleast 2 of the younger players are set to go on loan for the rest of the season. The stories are that a few wanted to go on loan for the whole season, but Emery wanted to see them in training and get them used to how he wants to play. Smith-Rowe is likely to join RB Leipzig and Eddie is off to Augsburg. It’s a great chance for both young players to expand thier education and hopefully get plenty of 1st team minutes. Will bring our total of kids playing in Germany upto 3.
The fight for 3rd – 6th is going to go right to the wire this season and I still fancy us to get 4th, let’s hope those coming in give us that extra bit of edge. Yes I would’ve liked to have seen a CB or 2 come in, but I guess we will have to wait to the summer now.
Have a good day and don’t drive yourself nuts refreshing the news feeds !
