NUFC reporter predicts what transfers will go through over the next 7 days – Interesting..

With Alan Saint-Maximin’s move all but done, the Chronicle’s Mark Douglas has stuck his neck on the line and predicted what deals will get done between now and August 8th.

Douglas estimates that there’ll be another £40m left to spend following Saint-Maximin’s arrival, believing there’ll be 2, possible 3, new players signed after a deal go the Nice winger goes through.

He feels a full-back will ‘definitely’ sign, claims another striker should be looked at (and mentions Carroll as a possible arrival) and also suggests midfield cover could also arrive.

Here’s what he’s had to say during his latest transfer post on Twitter:

He does suggest that incomings could ‘depend on outgoings’, but that is to be expected given we have several outcasts and fringe players who need to be moved on – either permanently or on loan (Elliot, Lazaar, Clark Saivet, Colback, Murphy, Gayle?).

If and when Saint-Maximin signs – a deal he describes as ‘virtually done’ – the emphasis should be placed on full-backs for me – and it sounds like it will be.

A deal for PSG’s Stanley N’soki is in place but a contract is yet to be agreed by all accounts, while Amiens’ Emil Krafth and Lille’s Edgar Ie have been linked at right-back.

As for a striker, Andy Carroll arriving on a free in a month or so seems like a very real possibility IF he proves his fitness – although having him and fellow injury prone striker Dwight Gayle as back up options to Joelinton could prove to be a big risk.

  1. Great to see the big lad here for his tour and medical. Bruce is really in awe of this guys ability and potential and I’m not surprised after watching him a bit.
    Hope the nsoki deal goes through but Willems is available cheap and would jump at the chance to join the premier league. Certainly would bring more experience than Stanley.
    Keep tabs on marega. Not too expensive and more reliable than an injury prone Andy Carroll.
    Even though I would like to see him come home.
    Jared Bowen or Wilson should be no brainers for me. Young talent with big futures. We should be doing all we can to sign 1 or the other. Time will tell.
    Wish people would give bruce a chance though
