Hi Ed, hope you are well?

Just wondering if there is any interest in Djene Dakonam? Getafe are doing very well in La Liga this season but from what I've seen he would not be out of place in even better sides.

Thanks.

Rjmanutd

{Ed002's Note - Djene Dakonam (CB) Over the past year Arsenal and Leicester have watched DD with a view to an offer - but Leicester would only be keen if the were to lose Caglar Soyuncu. With Jonny Evans aging they will likely look to see how Benkovic performs on hi return. Arsenal opted for Mari, so can be discounted. Spurs though he might be a viable option to replace Jan Vertonghen but potential cost and age will make them look elsewhere. Monaco had an offer rejected in January and their stance on the entire team has shifted and they will be most unlikely to return. Other sides who have sent scouts to watch him and other Getafe players have not followed up on any interest. With many clubs having financial issues they will be careful with purchases and often be looking at younger players where they can sustain a return on investment.}

Ed002, if you're not too busy is there any chance of an update on the future of Arda Turan? A couple of months ago you mentioned he was looking likely to leave Atletico.

Rjmanutd

{Ed002's Note - Ahmet Bulut continues to whip things up, but this time he may be correct that Arda Turan will be available to move in the summer - however it will take a bid of around €40M for any sort of deal to happen - plus very significant wages and plus Champions League football. Atletico Madrid have twice rejected offers from Schalke but the only clubs that have shown any real interest at this time are Milan and Galatasaray, and the cost would be an issue. Don't rule out interest from Bayern Munich or Manchester United at some point. Bulut has spoken with a number of sides about the player - and there remains a slim chance that Arsenal could turn to Arda. The player has said that he would like to stay in Madrid, but Atletico may look to sell him if they can keep Koke and Griezmann.}

Hi Ed,

Hope you are well wherever you are in the world just now?

Is there any interest in Rodrigo Bentancur? I'm holding out the most likely very very slim hope he is offered to United as part of a Pogba deal.

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware right now.}

Hi Ed, hope you are well. I was wondering if you have any info on Nicolo Barella?

He's been brilliant in Serie A this season and has broken into the Italy squad. I would imagine Cagliari will look for a high fee for him but he looks like a player who will soon be considered among the best midfielders in the world.

Do you see anything happening in January or more likely next summer? I'd imagine Juve will be interested as they usually are in the best Italian players.

Thanks in advance.

Rjmanutd

{Ed002's Note - Nicolo Barella has been of interest to a number of sides including Napoli, Liverpool, Spurs, Inter, Roma, Lyon, Milan and Juventus. He is being priced at the very top end of his market value, and during discussions between his representative and another English side in the summer Barella's representative made it clear that he wants to be a starter and ideally wants to stay in Italy - but for the right deal would leave Italy if given assurances about his International future. Both Spurs and Liverpool continue to watch him - although Liverpool do not currently have space for him. Monchi has preferred targets and will only turn to him if he fails with others for Roma. He is also a fall back position for Milan, and probably Napoli. My expectation is that he will move to the head of the list of targets for Inter and Juvents, who consider him over priced, will likely fight Inter for his signature as they start to search for younger players who are headed for a good future. Spurs might just try and get a deal done but he will be seen as high risk.}

Thanks for the reply ed. What are your thoughts on him as a player? Do you think he will go on to be one of the best around?

{Ed002's Note - All I can say is he is very well thought of and he is being seen as a potential national captain.}

Ed is there any interest in Jorginho of Napoli? He's been exceptional whenever I've seen him over the past couple of seasons. To me he looks ideal for a Barcelona or Man City type team as his passing ability is brilliant.

Rjmanutd

{Ed002's Note - There has been sustained interest by no action from Arsenal

Yeah he would have been a class above everyone at the time. It's ridiculous to think he still underachieved due to his injuries. If he hadn't done his knee when he moved to Inter he'd probably be seen as clearly the best player ever rather than being remembered as just one of the best ever. His hat trick at OT for Real Madrid is one of the best performances I've ever seen from an opposition player.

{Ed001's Note - he was one of those players you went along to watch play, no matter what team he played for or who they were against.}

Ed do you know if he ever came close to moving to the PL? Often wonder how players like him, Rivaldo, Zidane etc would have fared in the PL?

Rjmanutd

{Ed001's Note - yes he did, when he was at PSV he had a lot of offers. I am not sure about the other two but Ronaldo would have tore the Prem to pieces.}

Off the back of this ed, are Juve still looking to add another forward? I personally thought they would have went for Lacazette by now. He'd be a great signing for them and it looks like Zaza and Mandzukic could go.

Thanks

Rjmanutd

{Ed002's Note - Yes, Juventus are looking to add a forward, perhaps two.}
