Iíd hate to be responsible for Evertonís transfer policy, as youíre fucked either way.

Sign players early that want to play for the club (Klaasen) - Fans wanted a bigger talent, fans pissed off.

Try to sign bigger talents (Mina) - Player delays move to see if there are better options, fans pissed off.

Sign young players (Lookman) - We need better players now, fans pissed off

Sign older players (Rojo) - No resale value, fans pissed off

Offload players (Mori) - Should have held out for more money, fans pissed off

Hold out for more money (Mirallas) - Should have sold them by now, fans pissed off

I think we should be shopping in the Ďsecond chanceí basket, looking at a mix of young players who were hyped too early so arenít fashionable but still have the room to grow (Zouma, Max Meyer, Barkley) or players who are rotation options at the top level but could be starters for us (Delph, Walcott, Drinkwater)

From what I've seen in pre-season, both Dowell and Sigurdsson have pretty much played as a second striker when we have the ball forming a two with Tosun

Edit: that could just be because our build up play has been so slow

As frustrating as our known gaps are, Iím not seeing anybody out there moving who Iíd really want. Mina is better than what we have, but not necessarily great.

There were a couple of players earlier in the window, but Iím not seeing much now.

Absolutely would take him if he'd come, a complete different class to anything we have available

In theory, heís more about power than speed so could probably go for a few more years yet.

Has he had attitude problems in the past? I always find it weird that he doesnít start more regularly for Spurs as heís their best CM

I want two Centre half's and sell Keane. Rojo Mina and Holgate competing for the two spots.

You must know that thereís 0 chance of this happening

Although i agree, if we did loan him and Tosun got injures. Be arsed having Niasse start every week. Even with how much i love him.

Richarlison, Walcott and even Lookman could do a job through the middle if needed
