Sorry Ed forgot to ask in last post,

I have seen a lot of reports regarding a £23 million move for Brahimi of Porto, is this a player the club are looking at or is it media nonsense? I personally wouldn't mind Brahimi as he is very technically gifted

Thanks again Ed.

{Ed002's Note - Whilst the interest of Manchester City and Lazio has gone, PSG retain an interest in Yacine Brahimi but he has complex third party ownership issues and a very high price tag. Milan, Chelsea and Wolfsburg have a declared interest but the price is putting them off but all are willing to negotiate. Liverpool are looking to add a winger in the summer but Brahimi is far from first choice - if they do make an offer it would smack of a little desparation.}

Hi Ed

Quick question,

I know in the past and looking through the search engine that after it seems other targets such as Griezmann now look out the question what is our current stance with mkhitaryan? I can see you said we hold interest in him but it seems Arsenal are now favourites for his signature, do we still have interest in the player and would like to sign him or are there complications like in other deals like personal demands e. g pjanic or the club Dortmund itself e. g. The asking fee?

Thanks for any reply Ed keep up the good work :)

{Ed002's Note - Dortmund's Henrikh Mkhitaryan was of interest to Juventus over last summer but the player, who earlier in the year was unhappy in Germany, seems content right now but has contract demands that Dortmund are uncomfortable with. This has not put off Chelsea who have switched their attention to Mkhitaryan but right now it is going nowhere with the player for a couple of reasons. Juventus and possibly another English side may look to him again.}

Thanks for the quick response Ed,

Can you state the couples of reasons why the deal is going nowhere with the player or is it unimportant and can be easily resolved?

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant.}
