I think we all deserve a better player than Bakayoko after all these fucking years!

Meanwhile, several reports confirm it`s a done deal for 17 years old Lucien Agoumé from Sochaux.

I would be cautious with that kind of hype, but Barcelona and Inter have been following him for a while [1st report summer 2018] so I guess it`s a win for us! According to L’Equipe, Inter and Barcelona were strongly interested in the player who has been called the new Paul Pogba. The problem was that his club, Sochaux, would like to keep the midfielder by giving him his first professional contract in order to not lose him on the free agent market. [Contract until: 30.06.2020]

Lucien Agoumé has rejected the advances of several other top clubs to chose Inter according to a report from Tuttosport:

The young French sensation has knocked back interest from Lyon and Barcelona in favour of a €4,5 million Summer transfer window switch to the Nerazzurri. Agoumé, who has been likened to Manchester United’s Paul Pogba due to his playing style, told current employers Sochaux that he did not wish to sign a new contract with the club, with his contract due to expire next Summer. This is the reason the fee is rather low despite the wealth of interest.

The report goes on to state that he will train with the first team during pre-season and it will be up to Antonio Conte to decide what his next steps will be after that.

The 17-year-old central midfielder made 16 appearances across all competitions during the 2018/19 season for a total of 943 minutes, in which he was unable to score or assist.

The midfield sensation has shown great character in breaking into Sochaux’s senior setup recently, becoming the youngest player in the club’s history to feature for the first team.

Barcelona have apparently tracked Agoume’s progress in the French second division over the last year and have been sufficiently encouraged to make a move sign the exciting youngster.

With Serie A giants ​Inter also said to be interested, Barcelona have subsequently held ‘intensified’ talks over the midfielder, having committed to a clear decision to sign the talented player.

However, talks are said to be at an advanced stage, with Barcelona apparently confident of completing the signing barring any late twists.

Sochaux’s president Wing Sang Li is quoted as recently saying on the player: “Many clubs want Lucien Agoume, but we will try to get him to stay with us. We will word hard to find a solution and get him to sign a pro deal with us.”

Barcelona will not sign Sochaux midfielder Lucien Agoume this summer despite his €5m price tag, report El Mundo Deportivo.

The 17-year-old has made 13 appearances this season for the Ligue 2 club and the report cites Sportbild as claiming that there is also interest from RB Leipzig.

Agoume is the captain of the France Under-17 side and has been extensively scouted by the Blaugrana, but he is thought to want first-team football at his next club.

Saint-Etienne have also been linked with the player, who would go into Barcelona’s B team should a move come to fruition.

“Born in Yaounde, Cameroon, Agoume has played his international football with France making four appearances for the U16’s and scoring two goals, plus his 13 appearances with the U17’s, with whom he has also scored two goals.”

“He made his debut for the senior team on October 19th 2018, in a 2-1 win over ESTAC Troyes in Ligue 2 with Sochaux at the age of 16. Since then, the now 17 year old has made 16 appearances for Sochaux, totaling 943 minutes including Coupe de France.”

“He is an extremely versatile midfielder, although he prefers being in the middle of the pitch, his strengths are his passing, vision, technique and fitness, while he is considered a weak shooter.”

Considered one of the best prospects in French football and the transfer fee is reasonable, so welcome Lucien. Please don`t turn into Jomar...

To me he looks good. Good passer and goes to challenges. Those passes are good, not passes most of current Inter players can accomplish for example.

In Turkey they say it for sure: Elmas will go to Inter for 11 million euros

Eljif Elmas will be an Inter player. The news is reported by the Turkish magazine Boxer, according to which Fenerbahçe, through the mouth even of its president Ali Koc and coach Ersun Yanal, would have given immediate confirmation of the transfer to the Nerazzurri of the young Macedonian midfielder for the sum of 11 million euros , an offer that cannot be refused by the Istanbul club. Elmas, we read again, in the coming days will travel to Milan to undergo medical visits and sign the contract with Inter.

Worth noting that Sky Sports UK reports City will not allow Gundogan to leave.

Regarding Elmas, I don't follow turkish leage at all but heard good things about this guy, he is supposed to be a real talent.

He is one of the best talents ive seen, but still way too raw. Im not sure he is reafmdy for the pressure inter brings at this age. But im all in gor getting him and loan him somewhere. Fairly cheap too.

Who the fuck is Elmo? I hope this isn't Ausilio's way of giving the new coach what he didn't ask for. Or at least I should hope that he's good enough :lol:

Would be nice to sign someone good who can also take set pieces for once.. Tired of watching some of the most retarded corners and free kicks iv'e ever seen.

Feels strange watching literally every other team score from free kicks and I cant remember the last time we did. It's like witnessing a miracle.

While I don't have knowledge on reliability in these areas, turkish media say it's a done deal so I would say it's happening.
Oh pls i hope not!!!! Why the hell we wasting this money on this guy? Definitely not Inter material. We let Zaniolo go, much better talent and potential then this guy, now we turn around get him!!! fuck me

This is as reliable as the Ali Karimi banter.
