    Well, L'Equipe saying we've chucked a bid in, but likely not - but we definitely seem to be interested and would be a nice signing for us in a position that's a major problem. Stiff competition from Citeh and Chelsea, though who seem to be in a better position to sign him. Still...

    I have a hard time believing there's legs to this but I'd be pleased. We have to sign a decent left back at some point, right?

    It would be crazy for us to show interest if City and Chelsea is after him. We know for a fact whenever City, Chelsea, Real, Barcelona and PSG are going for any player, we won't be able to lure him over. I think best we start with fending off Spurs and the likes for now, than to compete with "the best". Like to see a player like him in our ranks, but hate to see us wasting our time testing the water knowing the sharks are already there.

    Adding 2 and 2 Andy getting 5 and all that, but could be why we've ended our interest in Sessegnon?

    During the Monaco CL games i thought the general consensus was that he wasn't very good defensively?

    I thought l'equippe is a relatively reliable source?

    They are, but the equally reliable source of the Echo is saying that we haven't bid, and that we're behind Citeh and Chelsea in terms of attraction to him. So, y'know... clear as mud! (But enough to start a thread)

    Tell us the truth. Did you open the thread to prevent @Nikola from opening and jinxing our slight 1% outside chance of signing the lad?

    He is opening threads without links. Someone should tell him about the rules - you know the ones whose link are present under some Mod's signature. Hm....

    You do it. lollol:celebrating::celebrating:

    Read a load of French reports on Twitter last night that he'd signed for City...

    So we will probably get him...

    I'm convinced Klopp likes Milner at LB. Convinced, hence why we've only been credibly linked to young LB's.

    Didn't think he had this level in him when he was at Marseille (3 years of regular football there and it's only this year that he got his first France cap), seemed a bit so-so to me. But he went up a level or two this season, maybe the system and players also helped. Anyway, we're not getting this one.

    Mendy isn't defensively sound. Could probably thrive under Pep but I think eventually he'll be found out by the Premier League.

    Why do it to yourselves guys, we all know this has about as much chance of happening as Mbappe going to Everton.

    Wrong attitude, man! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbour? No it wasn't. It's over when we say it's over!

    Seem a rumour somewhere that Monaco are holding out for 60 million for Mendy and rejected 40 million from Citeh.

    IMO never ever going to happen more chance of Lacazette signing and there is zero chance of that in my humble opinioin

    You saw a rumor somewhere?

    I'm not really trying to have a go at you here.... but this is the stuff that causes people to freak out.
    You're talking about a rumor.... and you don't know where it came from... and now people are going to take this as gospel. I'm not saying your wrong, but why post something as a statement when there is no supporting information/evidence? I could just as easily say "Seen a rumour somewhere that Monaco have already agreed a deal with Bayern Munich for the transfer of Mendy". It's just as plausible, but completely fabricated.
