Not sure how this is in anyway a scattergun approach. It’s very clear we want to sign a young homegrown right back. We’ve also been scouting MA for at least two years now. Couple this with all the ITK about the other young homegrown players we are interested in and there is obviously a clear desire to return to our previous (successful) strategy of adding young British talent to our squad on a regular basis.It’s still a scattergun approach. ITK’s have linked us 2 confirmed right backs whereas Herc’s has referred to another Portuguese player which a lot of us think it’s a previously linked via ITK Barca right back. The 3 players implies planning but if you look at it:
- one is now EPL proven
- one has only played circa 20 1st team games in the championship and they’re split across both left and right back
- one is an established international playing albeit as a squad player for one of the best teams in the world
It’s one extreme to another.
Adding Semedo into the mix as criticism is very creative of you, because we’ve had zero confirmation that this is the Portuguese player ITK are referring to, and at the end of the day he’s still a right back, which again is obviously an area we have targeted for improvement.
It’s hardly bloody scattergun.
