    Do Ferguson and Bogle look ready to start at EPL level?

    As I’d like Aurier to have some competition at RB/RWB for latter half of season and ain’t sure whether Foyth is in Mourinho’s plans for that flank whilst Walker-Peters development looks to have long since stalled.

    Man of the Match on his EPL debut, all downhill since then.

    I think Premier league clubs are so wealthy now that we can no longer buy players from this league unless the club don't want them. I'd like Aarons but don't think he'll be in our price range.

    Tottenham remain interested in Norwich's Max Aarons and RB Leipzig's Nordi Mukiele as they look to strengthen at right-back.

    Spurs were keen on Aarons in the summer after they sold Kieran Trippier to Atletico Madrid and were looking at Mukiele before he joined Leipzig from Montpellier in 2018.

    The club have continued to monitor the development of both players and right full-back has become a priority for new head coach Jose Mourinho, with his team leaking goals in the Premier League.

    They face competition for Aarons, however, with Everton, West Ham and Arsenal joining the 19-year-old's list of admirers - and he would be available for around £30m.

    The Gunners are not willing to splash out on big transfer fees, however, having spent around £150m on new players in the summer, with new additions described as "unlikely".

    Reports the former England youth international Aarons, who has played all but two of Norwich's games this season and was the EFL's Young Player of the Year last term, will cost up to £45m are understood to be wide of the mark.

    France U21 international Mukiele, meanwhile, has impressed at right-back for Leipzig as they have stormed to the top of the Bundesliga this season and they are keen to keep hold of their best players in pursuit of a first German league title.

    £30m for a bright young English full back from another Premier League club actually sounds quite reasonable to me.

    While I think Aarons is a good player, at this moment in time we need physical presence in the team.

    When we were at our peak, we had the following players in our team:

    Walker - fast and strong ( now gone)
    Rose - fast and strong ( now decrepit)
    Toby - physically strong ( now, not so much )
    Verts - physically strong ( now , not so much)
    Wanyama - a hunk of burning love, ( now broken)
    Dier - physically strong ( now broken)
    Dembele - another hunk of burning love ( now gone)
    Dele - tall and put himself about ( now flicks and tricks)
    Kane - tall and pressed like a dervish ( now, not so much)
    Lamela - ( when fit) reinvented himself as a midfield warrior ( now, not so much)

    With that power and strength in the team, we used to simply steamroller teams . Now we simply don't have the physical strength to do so. Our transfer strategy should be geared towards buying players with physical power, strength and speed.

    I think Aarons fits the bill on that front, certainly compared to our current RB options.

    I agree, and I could see Levy paying that. I'm sceptical whether Norwich would actually sell for £30m though

    Maybe 30m and KWP might tickle their fancy?

    perhaps the 2 chairman have already agreed for KWP plus cash and KWP hardly play to protect from injuries .....

    Competition from Bayern Munich.

    Hopefully the fee they are willing to pay proves to be a stumbling block.

    400% this would be a Levy signing rather than the manager, young, talented with a potential of a massive sell on fee
