What the heck. Let’s have a rumour.

I’m struggling to remember the last time I bought a football mag. My guess would be the WH Smith on Waterloo about 10 years ago. The memory wanders as this morning on an Italian footy site 442 are named as the source of this midget gem.

is the name in the frame.

His name surfaced most recently when mooted as a ‘Plan B’ for in their pursuit of Suarez. Then prior to this he was said to be on Aston Villa’s ‘radar’. His value appears to variy wildly depending upon who you ask and clicking about I’ve found estimates ranging from €6M to €14M. All of this suggests to me that his agent’s phone hasn’t actually rung at all much if not all of this was tubthumping, campaigning.

Or maybe our manager could devise  a tactic or two whereby our existing mob might get to do what they’re paid to. Just a thought.
