    Maybe we can offer them Snoddy and Fonte as part of the deal ?

  • WakeTheWolf says:

    Also…. is there any truth on the Interest in the Celtic striker dembele?
    Because I swear they said no more strikers will be signed.
    As we have Hernandez, Sakho, Carroll and Martinez.. with Ayew and Antonio being able to operate in that position as well.
    I can’t see the board paying £40m for carvalho and then on top spend £32m on dembele.
