Rannochina CB at Inter has apparently been the subject of NCFC bid. Kone from Lorient was another of our targets looks to be going to Sunderland as his club have accepted Sunderlands bid. Rannochina looks like a long shot. He has never played outside Italy Kone by contrast is more international in outlook having moved to France making a move to the uk something that he is likely to be happy with. Rannochia by contrast is probably going to have to get Mama to agree which she isn't going to as Bologna is only two hours drive away. The bid hasn't been accepted either. Caulker is another possible if a deal hasn't already been sown up with Palace (Gayle might be going the other way) . If Kone was good enough we should have outbid Sunderland. It would be easy to repeat our failures of the last window at this rate. An offer is only any good if it is accepted.

{Ed002's Note - Andrea Ranocchia has attracted the recent interest of Sevilla and Norwich City as they continue to look at centre backs but it is Bologna who Inter have been negotiating with.

A bid for NKoulou is not out of the question.}

That would be nice but unlikely. Roma are apparently interested although Debuchy is supposed to favour a move to France. In any case he is a RB and we we need a CB. Recent reports indicate that Ranochia is going to reject Norwich.

Apparently in the last few minutes there has been a 13.5 million bid from Tottenham for Nathan Redmond, what do you make of this?

If true we will be in for Byram and we'll get Pritchard too but Redmond has been a big player for us and it would be risky replacing him. In anycase Redmond would probably struggle for game time at Spurs so he may be best served by staying.
