Rashica has been loosely linked to us since last summer i think but was supposed to have a deal lined up this summer to a German club i think. I suspect Sancho will continually be linked to us until he moves elsewhere.If Havertz is being considered - and I'm less sure than I was before lockdown given the likely expense involved - then I think it would be with a central role in mind, whether that's playing a Firmino-esque false 9 or a more attacking midfielder. What makes this even less likely is that this is also the best role for Minamino, who I don't think has looked great for us in the wide positions so far.
A couple of interesting tidbits in today's rumours, one being renewed interest in Sancho, the other a player from Bremen called Rashica, who is apparently a fast winger/goal threat type, who might be available for £16m if Bremen go down (or £30m if they stay up).
Of course, I would also be happy to see the club look to Jones and Elliott as stand-ins for Mane and Mo.
