Kostić could even play as a LCM when needed.

we should keep our eyes on Wilfried Singo (Torino) as an upgrade/ replacement for Darmian or even Dumfries.
I like him a lot as an athlete. I’d also be happy with Molina who has developed a lot this season at Udinese. He has better end product IMO.

Asked too much money. It's also uncertain if we were really after him ever. It's possible rumors were just for the domestic markets in Germany to raise his value in contract negotations. I don't know. I'm not sorry we didn't sign him. He's 28 already, didn't do well at bigger club (BVB).

Plus he obviously prioritized a starting role over a move to a bigger club/league. He was linked with Bayern, Inter, Barcelona, Juventus. He even had the option of Aston Villa if he wanted to try a new experience abroad. But in the end he chose the safe option of Freiburg where he started his career.

I was in favor of Ginter but only if he was coming as a backup. If we were only looking for a starter i certainly prefer Bremer and i have no hard feelings about not getting Ginter.

We were never serious about him. Apart from Bremer, i haven't read serious rumours about any cb recently. Curious who's gonna replace Ranocchia. Perhaps Vanheusden? Or maybe they will offer an extension with a paycut to Ranocchia after the end of the season like they did last year as well. They certainly don't see it as a priority right now.

I thought there had to be serious reliable information/sources to open a thread on rumoured players?

I feel the fact he went to Freiburg shows he is not Inter quality, let's hope we get Bremer and keep SDV as a back up.

Nah mate, de Vrij needs to fuck off. Dude looks completely washed.

He's also one of the few players we could sell for decent money (~€20m) without compromising the squad. Plus with his contract situation we need to ship him now.

I thought he would have been on a bosman deal since it comes to term this summer? Or is there still 1 year left, if so sell and finance Bremer + a backup...
