The football community is a relatively small world. Just because we've never heard of these lads, doesn't mean they aren't well know and highly thought of in scouting circles. Brands will probably have scout reports for these players from back when they were turning out for Argentina U14s. I've read many anecdotes about scouts tracking Rooney from 12 onwards. As I say, it's a small world.
And anyway lads; Brands won't be working 18 hour days, monopolising his time, just to sign these lads. He'll have bigger fish to fry. The success of our summer transfer window doesn't depend on landing this lad and Sosa.

I don't doubt any of this at all, I'm sure they are well known and thought of.
£10-15m is a lot of money to spend on players who haven't really got substantive first team experience to their name though.
I'm not criticising the links at all, just curious about them.
I'm wondering why they haven't been getting more games, when we see them being potentially being ready to start for us, etc.
(And I'm also wondering just how much we have available to spend if we're considering speculative signings like.)
