I've never heard of him nor seen him play but I wonder maybe if we will have a first choice younger target and maybe sign this guy as a cheap back up, so 2 in and 2 out.

I'd say I can't see this signing happening tbh.

Rose comes out, on sky, saying we have a policy of moving on players when they turn a certain age.

The next day, sky links us with a random 29 year old right back and says we have concerns over his age.

They’ve literally made this link up. Christ.

I genuinely can not work out who we are targeting at right back. However I can't see Sakai high on the list at all. However looking at the U23 options we have been tentatively linked with I don't see where we will go with the position.

Aarons - just been promoted and will probably stay at Norwich
AWB - Palace don't need to sell and can demand mega money, now being linked to United again
Atal - no real talk of this at all (although all things considered I think this would be my preferred choice)

I'm sure more links will start to surface over the coming weeks as we are still really early in the window. However after CM RB is the most important signing this summer so I really hope we get this right.

If we sign a 29-year old they should be, or near, the finish article. Is this it? No idea what he is like, but doesn't seem like this is it.

Don't know anything about him, but maybe he is cheap and if we are serious about Lo Celso and Ndombele we see him as a realistic short term option?
