Player Valuation: £1.5m
Everyone just needs to relax. We’ll get our targets, it may not be before the season starts but it will be by the end of the window. It’s not ideal, but as people have mentioned you cant buy what others are unwillingly to sell or if the asset is playing hardball. We’re just not an attractive proposition, 2017-18 put an end to that. Watford and Napoli will lose their nerve and drop the asking price once they realise they’ve got an asset they can’t use or can’t afford to down tools. It’s all a game of poker, Chelsea are throwing their chips in regardless of their hand, most others are being cautious and waiting until the cards align properly before making their move.
