Transfers & Rumours in Summer 2021

Transfer Rumours & Confirmations thread for this summer.

Will up date as information lands and posters add comments.

I haven’t seen much at all of the players linked from abroad and the opinions provided are second hand so if anyone has seen them play would be good to find out more.


Khvicha Kvaratskhelia - 20 Year Old Georgian Winger. Both feet. Tall. Loves to run with the ball and good dribbler. Exciting prospect that could turn out to be a bargain, but hasn't played at a top level and so might turn out not to be good enough. From clips looks like it would be fun to see what he can do. Seen rumour that negotiations are advanced.


Borna Sosa - 23 Year Old Croatian Left Back. Rumour club in talks with him & Perraud. Sosa made an incredible amount of assists (9 from 26 games) for Stuttgart this season. Good runner with the ball too. Defensive work not very highly rated.


Romain Faivre - 22 Year old attacking midfielder. Can play either wing or through the middle. Had a brilliant season at Brest (same club as Perraud). Looks an ideal signing. Seen a price at £13m which sounds very unrealistic. AC Milan, Dortmund, PSG other clubs rumoured to be interested.


Nahitan Nandez - 25 Year old Uruguayan International. Plays Central Midfield & on the right. Looks like he has played most of the season for Cagliari on the right but I suspect he would come in for the more defensive of the 8s in the middle (Dallas/Klich). Appears to be a good presser which is vital for us. £26m

Gabriel Gudmundsson - 22 Year old Left Winger, plays for FC Groningen. Looks to be tall and quick. Likes to run at players.


Jack Harrison - expected to be confirmed as a permanent transfer on July 1st. Fee around £10m. Real bargain for a player with 16 goal involvements. Don't think there is any doubt this will happen.

Romain Perraud - Contrasting reports today regarding Romain Perraud. Several sites saying deal almost done following positive talks with Daily Mirror saying we have moved on to alternative targets following initial talks. From the reports I have read he sounds perfect for what we need. Very good on the ball, provides assists & goals, 23 years old.

Nicolas Tagliafico - An alternative to Perraud, Ajax LB. 28 years old which is too old for me. Apparently a good player but he's Argentinian so that could be the only reason for the rumour.

Rodrigo De Paul - Ruled out by Angus Kinnear, cannot see this one happening and between Kinnear & Phil Hay it's been made clear that the rumours are nonsense. A shame really because he does look very exciting.

Mattheus Cunha - 21 year old Brazilian who can play on the left or through the centre in attack. Incredible youtube videos and highly rated. £25-£30m.

Noa Lang - 21 years old as well and can play either wing or through the middle. Loads of goals & Assists in the Belgian League. £20m

Ryan Kent - We all know about him and there is definitely a pattern to the rumours. An attacking player who can cover both wings & the centre. Preferably right footed. Ryan Kent fits this.

*Emi Buendia - Norwich attacking midfielder/10. Brilliant player and very good off the ball too. Arsenal are favourites to sign him though and I suspect £40m will be out of our budget if fee goes that high. - GOING ASTON VILLA...Can't believe he has gone there, would have been a great signing for us and could surely do better than them? Looks like this could be another brilliant window for Villa.*

The Galan rumours seem to not be true. Saw a journalist (can't remember which) say we were moving for a young LB whose name hadn't been bandied around. Galan 26, so not sure he fulfills the criteria of young. With Perraud, Sosa, and Tagliafico all unlikely, not sure who it will be.

Assume Reed would be signed instead of Nandez.

There's another name I got attached to: Nandez.

He seemed perfect for MB & us. Also seems to be yet
another press generated/click bait rumour that I fell for.

Well, we were linked with nandez during our first season in the champ under Bielsa. Think he will just be a name like James or Wilson that we will get linked to most windows now.

Did anyone see the journalist who reported that Raph had been left off our squad list, hinting at a move to Liverpool, only for it to turn out he was there but under his full name?

Ha. Brilliant.

On Raph, did anyone else see the rumour Raph to
Liverpool for Harry Wilson and cash. I've always liked
Harry Wilson. But, wow, clutching at straws there.

To be honest one thing I note about all the raph to Liverpool links is none of them seem to mention a price.

All say of um saying Liverpool are definitely after him... but not one of them seem to be able to nail their colours on a price.

Not worry myself. He seems happy and he has a four year deal.

Him and Harrison next year are going to continue to be deadly

posted 23 hours, 43 minutes ago

An original offer of 32 million was suggested a couple of weeks ago. Don't think we'd accept that, and think the rumours linking us to Wilson this summer are just press stuff. He's another left footer, so the opposite of what Bielsa seems to want.

Seems that the tweet about Raph has been deleted, with a retraction stating that the site was updated after the tweet was made. He's currently reporting that City want to keep Harrison. After it being pointed out that we have a buy clause he has since said that Harrison has yet to agree to a contract, which was reported happened last year, so...

Suspect he has no clue what he's talking about.

Not convinced with the Reed rumours. If hes not better than what we already have i dont see the point. Koch can play DM for me. Seems made up by the press.

We need quality

posted 17 hours, 15 minutes ago

No problem with us looking to strengthen depth in key positions, as that was a large issue we had during last season. Reed does that, and means we can stop relying on defenders playing out of position.
