With reports suggesting that Jose is steering clear of Rose and Alderwield now, most likely due to trying to negotiate with Levy, I was wondering about what happened to our reported interest in the PSG LB Kurzawa? Surely he is a cheaper option for LB and a decent option as well? I also made a point recently that a CB I’d like to see come in would be Boateng from Bayern. Keep seeing rumours if the right offer comes in for him Bayern would listen. I’d be happy with Kurzawa and Boateng coming in as cheaper alternatives to Rose and Alderwield with both bring the same quality IMO.

I don't rate Boateng at all. Looked dodgy McDodgyson at City and then whenever I watched him for Bayern or Germany he was just cruising with no pressure. A bit like Hummels, rare occasions when under pressure they look lost and I bet any of our CB's would look just as Rolls Royce playing CB for Bayern most weeks. I'd seriously rather have Smalling and Jones.

I like Alderweirald but he is a defenders defender, we need a Rio rather than a Vidic for that type of money, so I'm quite pleased if we have moved on. I haven't seen enough of Kurzawa to comment, but we 100% need a LB if Shaw isn't fancied.

Kurzawa is average at best and boatang while decent is injury prone, how many more of those do we want in defense.

Ideally we should get rid of Smalling Jones rojo blind and darmian, get a good young cb like de ligt or pavard and get someone like bonuci to be the experienced guy if we can't sign alderwierld.

Lb we should be trying for Sandro, we have no width and stacking lw's all of whom like cutting inside won't solve the problem.

I agree with beast. I do like the sound of the lad at Augsberg.

had reservations regarding alderweireld and not sure on rose so if its true we've stepped away ;all good especially in relation to levy who is difficult to deal with and unrealistic in his valuations.
Would like skriniar as cb but we could be suprised.

I still think Alderweireld is our main target, Spurs will lose him for less next summer unless he signs on so I think a deal can be done. Rose I’ve never been that keen on, Aaron Martin still an option? Who was that other Vettel back Ed002 said Jose remains keen on, Lopez?
