Sancho alternatives

Here's a cheap and cheerful thread to discuss right wingers we could sign if we can't buy Jadon Sancho. I'm looking for unrealistic and underwhelming suggestions, blue skies thinking and lazy clichés.

Here's a few to kick off with:

Left-footers in the right age profile:
David Brooks - looks a classy player but to be honest I really don't know how good he is.
Ousmane 'the old Jadon Sancho' Dembélé
Adama Traore - improved, experienced, good time to step up; always strikes me as more of an athlete than an artist (but then again I always used to think of Gareth Bale in those terms and he's had a reasonable career). Note - bloodred has pointed out he's actually right footed.

Left-footed players who are also (gasp) predominantly left-sided players:
Ivan Perišić - in some ways he looks like a decent option if we want squad depth and perhaps to go back for Sancho in a future window. But is he primarily effective playing on the left?
Leon Bailey - like Barry, I've never seen him play.

Crocks:
Douglas Costa
Gareth Bale

Promising players we could easily and affordably recruit, but right-footed:
Emiliano Buendía
Kingsley Coman
Hudson Odoi
Ismaïla Sarr
Allan Saint-Maximin
Kylian Mbappé

Tearful reunions:
Adnan Januzaj
Memphis Depay
Zoran Tošić
Gabriel Obertan

Wild cards:
Amad Traore - Ivorian Atalanta youngster, never heard of him, linked to us today
Theo Walcott - just for the LOLs

I'd love to know who gave it one star

It's Rosso. We filtered each other but he created a second account for the sole purpose of spying on me and one-starring my articles. The feud dates back to a vitriolic argument we had about vinho verde. To this day I stand by every word I said.

Good grief, two of my favourite posters.
I've only drunk vinho verdi in Portugal, it doesn't travel well imo. They tell me it has a greenish tinge, but I'm colour blind. It's very slightly pétillant, and has to be drunk cold. Preferably with a fish dish overlooking the sea.
I like it but it's not worth rowing about, make it up.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

52, I confess that story was entirely fabricated.

Though I am a little hurt that Rosso hasn't engaged with this thread.

Goat pi5s is warm, for a start.

There’s to many sarr’s, traore’s and dembele’s nowadays, why can’t people just have normal names?

When chilled, it's eminently quaffable
