Seems like the last one was closed 2 years ago.
Not a wishlist thread, but to post mostly unknown players that could be good for us in the near future

I start with Adolfo Gaich. Big #9, but mobile. Looks perfect for the PL imo

He was minutes away of moving to Club Brugge last week. Man U are reportedly following him

always like these threads.

just went to recommend a player i've watched all season and mentioned elsewhere before; edmond tapsoba a cb for vitoria guimaraes(same team as marcus edwards) only to find that he moved to bayer leverkusen on transfer deadline day so that's a bit of a pisser. he will probably be in high demand in a year or two. don't really have anything to add now, sorry.

Dang, he looks awesome. Can see why Utd were getting linked with him.

I'm sure all the top clubs are aware of him but I hope we try to make a move.

Personally, and for England's sake, I hope that Birmingham can hang on to him for 3-4 more years.

Looks good, but 35m for a 16yr old DM is too much imo

Apparently Uniteds bid was 8m upfront, the rest in add ons.

I believe it was accepted but turned down by the boy and his father.

Solid decision by the Bellinghams if true. Just makes him more attractive as a prospect if he's not chasing the money.

For me Thiago Almada is one to go all in for in the summer as he's got an insane amount of talent.

Not an unknown player but I really think we should go for Oshimen at Lille. Talk, strong, quick, can play out wide if needed as well.

The best thing he can do is just stay at Birmingham and play 40 games a season for the next couple of years with no pressure.

I've been watching the conmebol preolimpics these couple of weeks. Besides Gaich (the one on the opening post), I thought both of Brazil's CMs looked amazing.
Bruno Guimaraes that recently signed for Lyon, and Matheus Henrique that plays for Gremio. Bruno is more of a holding midfielder, Matheus is more like Arthur Melo, the one playing for Barcelona.

16 years old.

Watched this kid (literally) live yesterday, played on the left of a midfield 3 most of the game, wasn’t the best player on the pitch but wasn’t far off, very solid for his age and his stature at 16 is genuinely incredible, didn’t get bullied off the ball once

Im a fan of Ibrahim Sangaré

100% fits the athletic and technically gifted profile that Jose apparently wants in his players. I wonder if this is the young midfielder Hercules mentioned or whether that's Soumare. Would probably make more sense to get this guy as he is seen as a DM who could work brilliantly with Lo Celso and Ndombele.
