Pelle looks to push summer spend to £70 million

Manuel Pellegrini and Mario Husillos are hoping to add another £30 million to the £10 million they have raised so far in this transfer window  following the £10 million departures of Edmilson Fernandes and Lucas Perez.

Although it’s been widely reported that the boss has been handed £30 million by the board he is hoping to raise that again plus a little from sales.

All being well that will include Chicharito (£10 million), Jordan Hugill (£4 million) Pedro Obiang (£8 million) Sam Byram (£4 million), Reece Oxford (£3 million) and Carlos Sanchez (£3 million).

Pelle will be hoping too that the co-chairman will be ready to hand him another £10-£15 million taking his kitty for the summer to around £70million-£75 million.

Chicharito remains a target for Valencia but other interest is likely to arise out of La Liga which, were it to develop into a tug of war, could push his price even higher.

Forest boss Martin O’Neill is keen on Byram  and Augsburg are set to pay £3m-£4m for Oxford.

  1. Your figures add up to 82-85 million!!

  2. We absolutely need to be spending between 70-80 million this summer to back up our spending last summer, to keep our top players and to get into the top 7. If this means we need to sell players like Snodgrass and Cresswell too so be it. We need at least one marquee signings in the bracket of Anderson in my opinion. The two most important positions to fill are a box to box midfielder (not Mullins from Newcastle as he is similar to Rice and in any case not a marquee signing) or a top drawer right sided attacking player (great if he was left footed). One marquee and the other must be a top signing too. If we have to spend a combined 55m on both lets do it. Quality over Quantity. Then we need a CH (Maripan looks perfect for us). and then a striker with serious potential. Any money left over should go on another young midfielder with top potential too. I would be really happy with this.

  3. With the budget that’s on offer al! That we will get is players that are the same calibre as the ones on the way out ..we need to fill the squad and there isn’t enough money to buy quality right the way through ..so it’s pretty pointless really
