West Ham are preparing an improved £30m plus add-ons offer for Burnley's England defender James Tarkowski.

However, the Clarets want £50m if they are to part with the 27-year-old centre-back.

I like Tarkowski, but those are crazy numbers

Watkins to Villa, £28m rising to £33m. Astronomical money for a player who has only ever played football league. He might turn out to be one of the best English strikers around but that is a huge gamble.

Ive just seen that....im sorry but thats ridiculous money.

Hes a good player but £33m good? I dont think so...

Looks Villa have panicked and just offered an amount no other club will to get a striker

Aston Villa are on the verge of completing a deal for Brentford striker Ollie Watkins.

The initial fee is £28m which could rise to £33m with add-ons.

If that goes through, I think they will finally have got it right in their quest for a striker, after what they blew on transfer fees over the last couple of years. Sadly, I can see that the fee mentioned would be out of our range, unless we had not done the Dianga deal.

I keep hearing about post Covid prices but I'm yet to see any real bargains. That kind of money is ludicrous.

£28m for Ollie Watkins is an absolute backside kicking.

Also, Alex Telles strongly linked with Wolves. Another Mendes special, tough when you know you can't compete with the resources of the team finishing 7th in the league. We used to finish top half with a team of free transfers and rejects. How times change.

Meaning? Villa paid over the odds?
Sadly, I think they've got themselves one of the best goalscorers for the PL. Just hope we don't see him trotting away celebrating having bulged the net at the Smethwick End, but wouldn't surprise me at all.

True, but he's got pace and mobility which is crucial, and more of it than any of the other names we're being linked with. (P.S. I know Burke has pace and mobility, but sadly too many of the other basics missing).  :'(

Fulham going wing back crazy. Following in from Robinson, they are now close to signing Ola Aina from Torino and duth international Tete from Lyon.

They already had the very decent Joe Bryan, so feels lile a bit of an overload.

Just a bit of a stretch to say one of the best goalscorers in the PL as if they've signed Kane, Vardy or Aguero.

Tete is an excellent right back, another from the Ajax school. But Fulham are looking a bit overloaded for choice.

Crystal Palace are in talks with Chelsea over signing striker Michy Batshuayi on a season-long loan.

Batshuayi is expected to sign a one-year contract extension at Chelsea before going on loan.

Rumours are they are in a bit of a panic as missed out on all first choice targets so far apart from Watkins who has yet to decide.

Think they are focusing on the UK market after last year's disastrous foray into the Euro market.
but if we do that we are short sighted and not showing ambition.
