Transfer window update, rumours are flying in all directions, who
are hot, cool and cold
DATE: 26.08.2017 - THE CUNNING FOX - NEWSDESK
Rumours about players
leaving and players coming in are all over the web, and in all the
top tabloids at the moment, so to understand what is going on is
really difficult, here are the recent updates
German international Benedict Howedes is linked with Leicester City
and reports are that the Schalke 04 captain could be linking up with
his former team mate Christian Fuchs. 29 year old Howedes fits the
bill as City are seeking a new central defender.
As Howedes is linked, Gibson and Evans are still options with
Man City in the chase as well. West Bromwich are very reluctant to
lose their best defender and at Middlesbrough they are of course
eager to keep one of their best players.
Nampalys Mendy and Yohan Benalouane looks like they both will
be leaving, but so far nothing has materialised.
Benalouane is linked with Turkish teams Besiktas and Trabzonspor,
with Mendy also close to a move away, despite not being happy about
possible moves to Atalanta and Bordaux falling through.
Jamie Vardy is back in the rumour mill, with a possible £ 40 million
move to Chelsea described as a possible happening. Danny Drinkwater
looks like he will stay at Leicester with Chelsea looking at other
players, not ready to pay the asking fee of £40 million.
Where the rumours comes from is not easy to say, with both Vardy and
Drinkwater on long term contracts at City. Drinkwater at the moment
out of action and Vardy doing well so far in the first three games
of the season.
Riyad Mahrez rumours are not much anymore. He is also ready to jump
ship, if anyone comes in for him. A difficult situation for Craig
Shakespeare who just wants to build a squad of players that can win
So many players are linked with City that it's difficult to cope
with all the rumours circulating. Quality signings are what City
needs, not more players who just are there to compete for places,
they need to play and get in and make a difference.
Latest are that Islam Slimani will be tracked by Watford, with
Newcastle also in the chase. As Shakespeare we will just wait and
see what happens, don't know about anything yet.
You can look up our fresh and newly updated list of targets, who are
hot, cool and cold.
The season is well under way and hopefully Shakespeare will get his
balance right as the season continues. So far the predictions works
well, win against Brighton, defeats against Arsenal and Man Utd, so
no bonuses so far.
