    I think Martial will be an awesome signing. He was good under LVG, not so good under Jose, but still clearly has bucket loads of talent. And I think compared to Son, as much as I love him, he still has the tendency to make the simple thinks look difficult. He's getting better, but I still am not totally confident he'll score the easy chances.

    With Martial, I think he is a huge natural talent, and played in an attacking team with a manager that knows how to develop young players, he would kill it with us.

    Nah. He is a great player who needs proper coaching.

    Arp is going to Bayern from the looks of it and we know that when Bayern goes in for a German player, that pretty much rules everyone else out.

    I love ‘expected assists’ as a stat. But surely ‘expected goals’ is a worse indicator of performance than ‘goals’? It shows how much they’re getting goalscoring opportunities, but not how well they’re taking them...

    Wow, yes! 2001!

    And even he was out of contract, so technically was a free agent when he joined us - no fee.

    Still can’t think of a player we’ve actually ‘bought’ ie had to negotiate with them and agree a fee.

    I saw us linked today to Depay, which caught me a little by surprise. He was on my 'please sign' list before the Utd move. I know it was Dutch football but his highlights reel was bloody ridiculously good. I thought he'd do better over here.

    How has he been doing in France?

    He's been doing very good at Lyon. Apparently one of the main reasons they finished so high. Still, it's the French league. Maybe that is his level.

    And how do Martial’s last 3 year stats compare to Lamela’s?

    The thing with Martial is that he wants to be here (if those reports are true) and he will definitely want to prove a point to Mourinho/the league.

    I’m very excited at the thought.

    BBC gossip:

    Stoke centre-half Kevin Wimmer is close to a move to Hannover in his native Germany. The 25-year-old is in talks over a loan deal. (Mirror)

    He’s as German as Jan is Dutch

    Who's even talking about replacing Son with Martial anyway? It's about strengthening the squad and giving us more options - if we're able to sign players of the calibre of Martial instead of the likes of N'jie and N'koudou then we're in a good position

    Exactly. If he's going to replace any established player it'd be Lamela. For the roles behind the CF, Eriksen and Dele are first choice, Son has done incredibly for the last couple years so is 3rd choice and Moura has just arrived

    Llorente is who he'd probably be replacing but with the bonus of being able to fill the positions behind too.

    Shame The Swans were relegated, they may have taken Llorente back. What a waste of money he’s been.

    As a regular I still think he has a lot to offer a lower table club. Maybe we’ll sell him with some performance related fees to one of them.

    He might do a good job for Stoke?

    I think that he'd be fine at most places if he's playing week in week out.

    They got relegated too no? Relegated teams should be looking to rebuild with younger up and coming player rather than expensive PL ones, you'd guess.

    Any of the teams who finsihed 7th (Burnley) through to 17th (Southampton) could use him. Could be an astute signing for Newcastle @Greg put a word in :)

    I could see Bruce going for him if Villa beat Fulham this afternoon

    I hope they do. Could be an interesting match. Lots of back stories...Onomah probably on the bench? Ryan whoever. Foolham run by an anti-Levy tycoon who wants to buy Wembley and undermine Levy's WHL USP.
