Appears we are being linked with a Brazilian centre back Murillo who plays for Corinthians.

Don't know how reliable this site is but HardTackle have said Diaby has decided to join Al Nast.

Coming from the same source as recent days, Rudy Galletti, who is reportedly a little unreliable LotM - But, you know what they say, a broken clock is right twice a day so who knows. He's the only person reporting that Diaby has decided against Villa. Time will tell, I'd expect to hear something today or tomorrow, this is dragging on.


2.) 20 Jul 2023 09:35:11
This is a hard one to call there are so much conflicting reports, I think a lot of it is guessing to be honest.


3.) 20 Jul 2023 11:09:21
Max Lee, who is supposed to be very reputable, has said Villa have agreed a fee but apparently our wages are nowhere near as good as the Saudi club, apparently Diaby is waiting on them to agree a fee and will make a decision then! Fingers crossed!

Diaby has signed for villa


5.) 20 Jul 2023 19:24:11
I can’t see anywhere that he’s actually signed, sorry to be a downer ??‍♂️

He’s not signed, says he’s agreed to sign, but not signed ??‍♂️

Multiple sources are suggesting terms have been agreed in principle between player and both clubs - but no reputable sources are confirming it's 'done' - obviously it's not until things are actually signed.which they won't be unless a medical is passed first you'd assume.

According to Sky Sports we have had a £45 million bid for Moussa Diaby rejected.

Lord of the Mings

1.) 13 Jul 2023 19:54:41
They are holding out for 60 million…deal will be done around £50-£55 million

According to Fabrizio Romana ( very reliable journalist) Diaby has already told Leverkusen he wants to join villa and personal terms have already been agreed


2.) 13 Jul 2023 19:55:28
LOTM, just read talks are on going and the player wants to join having already agreed terms.
Wether this is true or not remains to be seen.


3.) 13 Jul 2023 21:39:11
Let’s wait and see with this one. We’re now being linked with several players now, particularly attacking options. At least one of these will come off, I’m sure of it.


4.) 14 Jul 2023 01:42:27
Would you guys prefer Johnson, diaby or the Belgian kid?


5.) 14 Jul 2023 04:08:24
Diaby for me whack, belgium kid is an attacking mid but can play on wings upfront and cm he's 6ft 3 aswell


6.) 14 Jul 2023 07:05:48
Johnson for me.


7.) 14 Jul 2023 11:13:25
I think with you lotm, simply because he’s already tested in the PL, I just hope he wasn’t a 1 season wonder. Diaby second choice from the 3.


 

 

29 Jun 2023 18:53:16
I see we are being linked with Galatasary right back Sacha Boey, can't say I know anything about this guy other than Arsenal are also interested, but at 22 and available for something like £15 million that doesn't seem too big a risk to me in today's market.

Never heard of him lord. then again I never heard of Moreno either until we started sniffing around him. walker peters is another I wouldn’t mind

Monchi deal done here's hoping a few more follow quickly on the back of this.

{Ed014's Note - he should have spotted that the first time when it happened even if he thought it was a good idea to start with!


2.) 11 Feb 2024 17:22:18
Moreno consistently making good runs down the left we are not trying to find him often enough. Ramsey great at finding the space between the midfield and Watkins but once in the space his decision making is shocking.

When you look at what's happened to Everton and potentially to Forest, I wonder that come the summer if we want to continue to spend big then at least one of our big name stars may have to be sold?
When we got promoted we initially spent £100 million or so on new players, and admittedly we recouped the bulk of that when we sold Jack but since then we have bought Digne, Carlos, Torres, Diaby, Ings, Buendia and Tielemans for something in the region of £180 million in Transfer fees alone and that doesn't include wages or agents fees which for FFP purposes needs to be included. I know you can amortise the costs over the lengths of players contracts but even so we must be getting close to the £105 million limit I would have thought.

Lord of the Mings

1.) 16 Jan 2024 13:58:19
I think our net spend is pretty reasonable, especially given we got a decent fee back for Ings, sold a few academy players for something in the region of £45m all after selling JG for £100m.
It's a fair concern though as it is for most clubs, so I wouldn't be surprised if we did let Ramsey or Luiz go.or even Martinez, as much as I'd like them all to stay.Champions League qualification will help though ;)


2.) 16 Jan 2024 17:41:25
It’s a tough 1… we are literally 2 class players away from being 1 of the best team/squad we’ve ever had, those 2 players for me are Jonathan David and a quality right back. Unlike some/most, i haven’t got a problem with Cash, he blows hot and cold I know but doesn’t every player, does Diaby look a £50M+ player right now? Form is temporary, class is permanent etc… I was talking to a Forest fan a few years ago before they got promoted, said he should’ve cost us double what we payed for him. Frimpong didn’t set the world alight at Celtic but now he’s a £35M+ player. Just my take on things ??‍♂️

The only positive to take out of today's game was that we didn't lose it, Everton made it a physical contest and we struggled to cope with that physicality apart from a 20 minute spell around when Moreno 'scored' Luiz misplaced more passes in this game then the whole of the season to date, his grappling with players in the box will cost us a penalty or two if he is not careful. Diaby looks completely out of sorts and McGinn wasn't his usual effective self. I know many on here don't rate Cash but I thought we looked better admittedly not much, but a bit better when he came on.
I think the major difference between the likes of us and Liverpool, City etc at the moment is they put these sides away we are still developing as a unit and have yet to develop that skill. It is a shame that we do the hard work in beating City and Arsenal but can't beat the Everton's and Sheffield Utd's of this world. Having said all that though we are still having a great season.

Interesting that Emery is hopeful of at least one signing during this window and despite the links with the likes of Zaha and Summerville if it's only one signing then he wants that signing to be a keeper. And whilst we know that as usual the transfer window is Journalist bull season, if they have got this right then he is obviously happy with his squad as it stands which I must admit I would find a little surprising, but it would signal to me that outgoings will be few and I can't see the likes of Duran being allowed to go anywhere.

Given how teams have set up against us recently I think we need to vary how we play a little more and rather than play out from the back all the time, on occasion go long to give sides something different to think about. A lot of tosh is spoken about long ball being outdated and you can't play that way anymore. Rubbish. At the weekend Arsenal who are one of the teams who invariably play out went long when Ramsdale set up a good chance against Liverpool from a long kick out, if you continue to do the same old thing teams will press you high, condense the space in midfield and stifle our creativity on occasion we need to try something different and give the opposition more to think about.

He is worth what clubs are willing to pay and if we are in danger of breaching FFP rules then we may not get top dollar for Ramsey. As it stands I don’t think he is worth the £50 million being quoted. If you think Spurs allegedly want £40 million for Conor Gallagher a midfielder of a similar age, and an England international then I think £35 million is a more realistic price.

He’s a snip at £2 million in todays market. I hope we insert a sell on clause, particularly given how he has developed over the last couple of seasons, with the right coaching I can maybe see him playing for teams either top end of the Championship or lower end Premiership. The lad is a talent in my opinion.

I posted a month or so ago that Arsenal are confident of landing Dougie either in January or the summer. If it’s January then the only way Arsenal can do it is with a player swap deal and apparently the are willing to offer us a choice of ESR, Nketiah, Nelson, Tierney to name but a few. If it’s cash then the deal won’t be done until the summer.

Apparently rumours down Emirates way is that whether it’s January or the summer they are confident of landing Dougie, if it’s January then given Arsenal’s spending to date it’s got to be a player plus cash deal the likes of ESR, Nketiah, Nelson, Tomayasu, Tierney, and Tavares are all available allegedly. If it’s the summer we can choose between straight cash or a similar one to that outlined above. Interesting ?

Koopmeiners is a really good shout right age and although a defensive midfielder he has an eye for a goal, 7 goals and 3 assists in 21 games in Seria A is non too shabby. Although i think we would probably be looking at a fee north of £50 million to buy him.

I don’t think we need to worry unduly Brighton dealt with them in the group stages, they are something like 5th or 6th in the Eredivisie and in the last 6 games they have won only 2 and have conceded at least 2 goals in each of those 6 games. They are not the side they once were.

Wouldn’t take Jorginho or Trossard, Jorginho too old and slow, and when we have Diaby and Bailey why Trossard? But as usual it’s all about opinions, and I am sure Emery will have his own targets probably from La Liga.

I think it will be Luiz who is sacrificed and I agree the fee should be at least what West Ham got for Declan Rice, but I would rather he go to Arsenal I’d ask for Tierney, and ESR in part exchange plus a cash adjustment and I’d use that to go for Neves. I’d then look to sell Digne and probably Ramsey try to sign the right back, forward and goalkeeper we need.

I agree Allstar, I think we are 3 players away from being a side that will be able to compete with the so called big six. A striker as you say to challenge Ollie, we can argue over the who (my preference is and always has been Patrick Schick) but someone who can push Ollie is a must. A right back again to challenge Matty Cash who isn’t as bad as some on here would have you believe but is inconsistent. The lad from Leverkusen Frimpong looks a really good player quick, a good crosser of the ball and scores goals as well. Finally a back up keeper as Olsen isn’t good enough, I’ve read somewhere that Kelleher at Liverpool may be available come the end of the season if that is true we should be all over that. The problem I think we will face is that to comply with FFP will mean that to buy 3 quality players will mean we need to sell one of our star players to generate the necessary funds as our income streams aren’t sufficient to sustain us spending £100 million plus on new recruits so we will need to balance how we improve the squad without weakening the first XI which will be tricky I think.
