We are one of the four mentioned PL clubs here...

 

There are only 2 interested PL clubs us and United, the other 2 are banter with no chance.

Has anyone actually watched this kid extensively (by that I mean 10+ games of 90 mins (ideally of club football) and not stats and youtube?) I ask as I never make a judgement on a player unless I have seen enough of them and I feel that is an absolute minimum.

Typical Juve hahaha

This is where we should step up... Give them 45m and finish the job. We have good relationship with them after Boga.

Watch him go there now.

Juve and Sassuolo have a good relationship. They have worked on deals for Rogerio, Demiral, Peluso in recent seasons. Plus offering Sassuolo one of their youngsters, just sweetens the deal really.

Juve did same with Chiesa loan with obligations to buy if conditions mst in 2 year loan period. And Morata, who’s loan they’ve extended.

Would be a great signing for them, sadly. Assuming Partey can stay fit they’d finally have a formidable, balanced midfield if they sign Locatelli.

With Billy going out on loan I would’ve figured we’d be in for him.

Oft what a move for Arsenal if they got him in. Still they’ll finish outside top 6. 

I wouldn't count on that. They are making some decent moves in the market.

They are linked with promising talents when they need senior/more experienced players though who can contribute now and help bridge the gap as they lack top top players to contribute more. Locatelli or Renato Sanchez is more of that mould aye but the others not so much.

The likes of Tavares, White, Ramsdale, Lokonga are good talents but hardly going to close the gap immediately.

Plus theyve lost the experience of David Luiz, will lose Granit Xhaka (basically going to Roma by looks of it) and Bellerin (heavily linked with Inter to replace Hakimi).

Well, they finished only 4 and 6 points outside the Top 6 and Top 4 respectively last season.

But are they really going to be that much better though? 

I mean I don’t see how buying every young talent available when you have little or next to none very good experienced players in and around is going to improve them. Plus you have a team/squad thats got a lot of youngsters there will be bumps in the road. 

Arsenal have done this before, always buying younger players who will maybe make them very very competitive in 2-3 seasons. If they all stick around. Maybe they get top 6 but with Leicester and Spurs, who will have to get top 6 on top of ourselves, City, Liverpool and United, I am still unsure if they will really be that much better.
