Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Not overly bothered bout that. More concerned bout a direct replacement for Dembele, who appears to be off. Some names flying around as per usual , but one that hasn’t been mentioned is Loftus-Cheek and he would be my number 1 target. Young, English, powerful CM player who will shine if given the chance at the World Cup. No doubt having spent time with Dele, Dier, Kane, Trippier and Rose, he’d jump at the chance to join a London club actually in the CL next season !!
