Just wondered if there is any interest in Leandro Paredes?
I think he could be a great addition to many sides and a little out of left field.

{Ed002's Note - Real Madrid and Juventus, but Juventus will back away if Can confirms he will be joining them.}

Hi Ed, hope you are well. was wondering if you are aware of any interest in Trabzonspor attacking midfielder Abdulkadir Omur.

appreciate any info.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any clubs making an approach to Trabzonspor about him but clubs may have taken notice as plenty of scouts have been attending games to watch another of their players.}

hi eds, hope all is well, just wondering if there's is any interest in David Neres and Steven Bergwijn for the summer? also would you expect alban lafont to move if Toulouse were to be relegated? Thanks also was having a good read through all comment etc on the boxing page cheers for the link!

{Ed002's Note - (a) Inter but he is not first choice, Milan but money could still be an issue. (b) Not at this time. (c) Lafont will likely move biut it is not related to relegation.}

ok thanks, I don't suppose you have any ideas whom westham might be scouting or looking into if they are to stay up too?

{Ed002's Note - You would do best to ask on the West Ham page Noel. I am sure dozens of offers are being made every day.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Apr 2018 08:38:55
thanks eds I see ironmikes posts but no one else seems to post from the eds as it always ends up in people arguing haha that's why I come on here instead.

{Ed002's Note - I try and stay clear as well Noel.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Apr 2018 09:22:48
im not surprised I have just posted so let's wait and see whom responds.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Apr 2018 10:27:02
hi eds back again. I wrote on the page in question but afraid no response which I kind of expected due to uproar if anyone gets involved, would you be able to give any insight as such? thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Much will depend on an appointment that is yet to happen Noel. But there is interest in the likes of: Jack Butland (but he will be looking at a number of options), Tom Cairney (might well be viable), Garry Rodrigues (will likely have better options), Ryan Fredericks (but there will be a further offer from Fulham and a rush of interest from elsewhere), Jack Wilshere (there will be interest from elsewhere but the driver will be if he wants to stay in England, and that will reduce his options), Mariano Diaz (who was watched in home games against St Et and CSKA by someone scouting on behalf of West Ham - but he will be expensive if he were to be available).}

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Apr 2018 12:39:37
hi Ed002 thank you very much for the update it is much appreciated. do you think that moyes will stay in the end? if he does I hope the board give him full control over any signings and transfers but I just can see that happening.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any plans for Moyes to leave at this time. The board should be looking to add a Director of Football and not handing over full responsibility to Moyes.}

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Apr 2018 13:52:23
well I read that a DOF was the plan but DGS have since gone back on that . how much truth in that I do not know but it sounds believable knowing the board.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware that the club has gone back on that - particularly given they have been actively looking. What has he said?}

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Apr 2018 21:52:51
Was just that moyes would get full control instead. But probably just paper talk. I always thought they should get harry redknapp in as director of football.

Agree0 Disagree0

Good day ed002, hope you're doing well and settling well in the new house. A quick question if you have the time, do you know by any chance what teams are monitoring Trezeguet at Kasimpasa? Very much appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - Anderlecht don't want to sell but he is due to move to Kasimpasa at the end of the season.}

Hey Ed what is your opinion of De Ligt and can you tell us about the interest in him?

{Ed002's Note - He is young and would struggle at the highest level right now so common sense dictates he should hang on a year or two. Arsenal and Spurs have looked at him but he would be a squad player. Barcelona are very keen and have space for a youngster as Mina will go out on loan (initially) as he is taking up a non-EU spot in the side.}

Believable1 Unbelievable0

11 Apr 2018 18:46:34
Isn't Upamecano also one of the options for the same squad role for Barcelona?

{Ed002's Note - No, he would be there to replace someone else.}

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Apr 2018 19:02:46
Thank You Ed! Have a nice day! Hope you're done moving house.

{Ed002's Note - Physically in but there are loads of items in storage and months of sorting things out. But thanks.}

hi eds, hope your well I don't know if you could tell us a little if you know much about tahith chong? thanks.

{Ed001's Note - he is just a kid mate. Highly rated etc but there are hundreds of those every year, it is impossible to keep track of them all.}

Believable1 Unbelievable0

06 Apr 2018 10:49:35
understandable i'm guessing the same goes with angel gomes too.

{Ed001's Note - pretty much mate. At one time I used to try and keep up with all the youngsters coming through, but you just can't as you end up watching hours of someone who vanishes into obscurity the following season!}

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Apr 2018 22:33:23
Yeah that's understandable its hard to predict whos really going to make it. what's your thoughts on declan rice? Looking good bur i am biased.

{Ed001's Note - he has been outstanding this season. So long as he keeps his feet on the ground he should be one of those who makes it at the top level of the game.}

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Apr 2018 10:25:49
good o hear a lot of comparison to john terry etc going around please for him and thanks very much for your time too! I've got loads of questions o players but I can imagine your swamped with the same questions day in day out haha.

{Ed001's Note - I don't see a comparison with him to Terry. Terry was not as naturally accomplished technically and Rice is not as defensive minded as Terry. Terry had to work hard at his game to become good technically while Rice seems more natural, but needs to work on his positioning, while that came natural to Terry. I would say Rice is more like a Javi Martinez type, a defensive mid who dropped back into midfield and became a ball playing mid. He could go either way, whereas Terry was never going to play anywhere but in defence.}

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Apr 2018 13:40:30
Very true. what's next on your list for player profiles?

{Ed001's Note - next football-related article is one for the FM/CM legends series on Richie Partridge. First I have one for our boxing site on Mike Tyson to put together. That could take a while as he has provided a lot of material to write about!}

Hi Eds' hope all is well,

Just wondering whether there's any interest on Turkish midfielder Ozyakub? and will he be available this summer?
Do you think he can cut it in a bigger team or bigger league?

{Ed002's Note - Oguzhan Ozyakup plays for Besiktas which most people would consider a "big" team - and the survived until the last 16 of the Champions League. They would like to have him sign a new contract and there remains a good chance that he will if a "signing on" fee can be agreed. Certaily a number of sides have been watching him for the past 18 months not least Arsenal who had an offer turned down in January but are still keen to take him back to London. West Ham, Valencia, Everton, Leicester, Milan, PSV, Trabzonspur, Augsburg, Nantes and Lazio have all sent scouts to watch the player perform, whilst RBL, Marseille and Newcastle have all recently spoken with his agent and enquired after his financial expectations. If he were to move it would be likely he would look to sides playing regularly at the highest level.}

Hi Eds,

Wondering if there's any interest in Donny van de Beek?

Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Everton were interested but there is no chance of a move there, Bayern Munich and another English side kept up interest since the start of the 2016 season and both looked to strike a deal with a loan back, but nothing happened. Barcelona want to take him but he would not be one for the first team for quite a while.}

What are the eds views on ricardo quaresma? always thought he was super talented and entertaining but inconsistent. Is this the reason he never really got a move to a bigger club?

{Ed002's Note - He is at the end of his career and has played for the likes of Porto, Inter, Besiktas, Sporting and Barcelona. Perhaps you are thinking of someone else?}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

25 Mar 2018 12:48:26
yeah sorry i knew he was older now. I guess I shouldve just asked what your views were of him as a player? I didn't know he played for Barcelona at any point though so i guess he did get chances at a top top club.

{Ed002's Note - And Inter, a sleek in loan at Chelsea, Porto etc.. You description was good - but he is inconsistent.}

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Mar 2018 19:44:04
Hello Ed.
Is there any interest in Alaba? And would Bayern consider selling? :)

{Ed002's Note - Real Madrid but Bayern are not looking to sell, but with a new manager we will see.}

19 Mar 2018 12:06:13
Ed are there any teams interested in Emil Forsberg of RBL?
Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - He is not expected to be sold and the clubs previously interested, most recently Lyon, are aware of that.}

Hi Ed.
I don't suppose that you know anything about Yann Rolim who's on loan at Aalborg in Denmark, but I've read that he's got complicated ownership circumstances, which seems to be the case with many South American players? I was wondering if you could perhaps explain how these ownerships - in general - stand out from the European ownerships, where it (as far as I know, but I don't really know) is the clubs, that own their players? And why these ownerships conflict so much with the possibilities of bringing South American players to Europe?

{Ed002's Note - I don't know anything about the player and have no time to check on his ownership but he would obviously never get a WP for the Premier League even if anyone were interested. Several countries are still allowed residual third party ownership where they don't have the money to buy the full rights. It means that a third party or third parties (typically agents or other representatives, investors, sometimes other clubs) own a proportion of the players economic rights. It comes about either (a) when a club wants to buy a player but don't have the money do so - then a third party will buy, for example 50%, of the players economic rights by helping to fund the transfer, or (b) when a club has a player that they think they will profit more from in the future, so they can raise funds by selling part of the player's economic rights to a third party. When these players are subsequently sold, then any buying club meeds to negotiate with the selling club and any third parties who own an interest in the player. This is where it can become complicated. If a club owned 80% a player and agreed to sell for £8M, the buyer then needs to agree with the third parties to buy the remaining 20% - and that could be at any fee the sellers want. But effectively under FIFA regulations it is no longer allowed. Some creative approaches have occured - notably Deportivo Maldonado and Stellar.

Thanks for the very detailed answer! I didn't in any way expect you to tell specifics about Rolim, I just wondered about the general concept, so your answer was indeed very satisfying! Thanks a lot and have a nice day!

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Mar 2018 18:48:24
Hi Ed, sure I remember the name being mentioned somewhere but any interest in Dayot Upecamano from Liepzig?

{Ed002's Note - Yes lots but he is priced out of a move - Barcelona would move for him at the right price if they were to lose Umtiti but the price is beyond acceptable. Manchester United quickly stood back for the same reason.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

16 Mar 2018 10:52:12
Thank you Ed, looks like he will be staying out for now then.

Hi ed001,

I saw a few Bundesliga videos recently and was just wondering what your opinion on Miroslav Klose was? His stats for his clubs doesn't look that great (bar his spell at Lazio) but on the international stage, he's record goalscorer for Germany and in the World Cup.

Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - he was excellent at certain things, but was fairly limited in overall terms. However he had good instincts, great in the air in particular and was composed when a chance fell to him. He is one of those good, but not great, players who can be fantastic so long as you play to their strengths and build around that. The minute he is not getting the service he needs, then he becomes anonymous in games.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

08 Mar 2018 18:47:15
Thanks ed, I've only ever seen him play in the World Cups and obviously he was excellent in those, scoring 16 and breaking Ronaldo's record. He seems like a really nice person as well so I'm glad he managed to win the World Cup right before his retirement.

{Ed001's Note - I like him a lot myself, he was a grafter, which is why he got the goals. He would give his all.}

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Mar 2018 17:55:20
Hi ed002,

If/ when Lewa leaves Bayern, who will they look to replace him with?

Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - They remain keen on Icardi. In the longer term they want Willem Geubbels back.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

08 Mar 2018 18:47:55
Thanks ed, Icardi to Bayern seems like a good fit, loads of baggage and drama to FC Hollywood.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Mar 2018 12:35:10
Good afternoon Ed's, a player that has caught my eye when watching the bundesliga is Kai Havertez. Seems like a dynamic midfielder who would do well in the premiership. Can create, destroy, pass and shoot. I know he is young, but is there any interest in him which could lead to a move in the summer?

{Ed002's Note - Kai Havertz has been watched by at least Arsenal, Liverpool, Schalke, Monaco and Manchester United. Bayer Leverkusen has made it known that he has a long contract and is not for sale at this time.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

06 Mar 2018 06:13:34
Thanks as ever for your knowledge. Much appreciat d.

Hi Ed's

Hope you're doing well, Haven't been up to date with recent rumors. I know Max Meyer is looking to move this summer, any idea where will he be going?

{Ed002's Note - Schalke would like him to stay, Juventus have looked at him recently, there is long term interest from Arsenal but much will depend on another issues, Barcelona are attracted by his price but the player may not be keen, Spurs have been keen for a while but it seems an unlikely destination at this time. Bayern Munich are waiting in the wings. I think he would be a good fit for Liverpool but it seems very unlikely.}

now that spurs have bought moura, what clubs remain interested in malcolm?

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal, possibly still Spurs.}

23 Feb 2018 19:24:12
Any change in Jann Fiete-Arp's situation at Hamburg Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware - there will again be interest but being young he will be advised to stay where he is to best serve his career.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

22 Feb 2018 13:39:57
Hi Ed,
Is it true that Lewandowski has changed agent after 10 years? If so, does he have a club he would like to move to?

{Ed002's Note - It is unrelated but he is expected to move this summer. I have no idea where the player would like to go but there will be interest.}
