Re: Change of subject - the January transfer window
We were an attractive prospect in the summer. Now we could well be in the relegation places during the Jan transfer window. The majority of the summer targets will not want to come to us.
Fahad Moshiri in his text to Jim White said they would be backing the manager. I'm not expecting 2018 levels of madness, but I anticipate some movements in Jan. It's early December, I would expect Benítez and Brands to be firming up targets and probing to see who might be available.
Some to think about at RB:
Dumfries - apparently going to be available on loan (or at least someone here mentioned that), if Benítez did not fancy him in the Summer, I doubt that has changed
Aurélio Buta - linked to him in the Summer, never seen him play
Patterson - Rangers will insist on more money if anything at this point
Max Aarons - Could this link be revived? Would be good business for 20M-ish but I doubt Norwich would be willing to come down that much (previously seen they were looking for 30m+ which is way too much)
Maitland-Niles - I think Arsenal have changed their position on him, he's been getting some game time this Austumn, so I think this one will be a no-go.
Santi Arias - gone on loan from Atleti to Granada, we've been previously linked with him, don't know why we did not go for a loan we would have got him most likely - ship has sailed here
Any other right backs on your radar?
Others we were linked to in the Summer:
Joaquin Correa (having a good loan at Inter by the looks of it so going nowhere I would think)
Van Der Beek - with Ole gone would ManU be willing to let me go? Has not got anywhere near the game time Ole promised him
Any others I've missed?
WHO else do you think could be available, may be willing to come and would improve us?
