    Already had the Pulisic transfer go down today. What else are we going to see this month?

    Samir Nasri is trying to make a comeback on a free with West Ham, trained for a few months and signed yesterday, was an unused sub today.

    Announced several weeks ago, but effective only now I believe--Barca scooped up Colombian Jeison Murillo from Valencia to add to their CB depth in light of injuries to Umtiti and Vermaelen. He's likely a break glass in case of emergency type, but I could be wrong. Vermaelen's injury should have him available before the end of the month, but it would likely be prudent to get Murillo some time in the Copa to see if he can provide any real value.

    Going the other way, I hope and think there is some possibility that Denis Suarez gets an outbound transfer. This guy is insanely skilled and deserves to play. Put him in the Prem or another La Liga club, and he will become a darling again.

    Looks like your side also signed Rabiot to a pre-contract. A £9m signing-on bonus & £170k/week...if he fulfills his potential, that's a great deal. If, if, if...

    Wow, I hadn't seen that. A 23 year old comfortable playing multiple spots in a MF 3 with his skill is a tremendous bet. Getting him on a free transfer is just outstanding. I don't know if his future at Barca is at the pivot or in the Rakitic glue guy role, but I think he's a reasonable candidate for both. Very good business by Barca IMO.

    Agreed, but what is it about the guy that so rubs managers the wrong way - at PSG & the French national team - that they leave him out despite the talent? The team that can get him to play up to his talent and not piss off his managers will be very happy. Is that Barca?

    Marko Arnautovic wants to go to China, initial bid of £35m rejected, second offer of £45 submitted West Ham will probably sell if it hits £50m could start a bit of a chain reaction as West Ham look to spend on a replacement and it trickles down

    £45-50m for a soon-to-be 30 year old striker would be a no-brainer for West Ham, especially with Lanzini coming back. Even if a replacement isn't bought, Antonio back up front with Anderson, Lanzini, and Nasri behind him wouldn't be too shabby

    Chicharito is probably back and would start. I think they'd like a younger striker to take over for Chicharito next season and compete now. A DM and a LB would be nice as well, with Sanchez out for the year Rice has no clear backup
