Don't get dispirited. We don't even know if there's a genuine interest in him. A lot of this is just idle paper talk at this stage. Koeman and Walsh seem to be concentrating on more off the radar signings like Sandro and maybe Klassen, which none of the papers had a clue about before Koeman was spotted watching them both in recent times (presumably).
and now Sandro is going elsewhere as well.
haha, this window feels different to others.
I don't buy into the "most important window ever" line that is getting trotted out - because each and every window is the most important ever. We never end a season thinking "this one doesn't matter, we dont mind if we dont kick on or go a bit backwards next season2.
But this one just feels like we need a bit of luck, that we just need a variable to go our way right at the very start.
