So it appears Barella could be a target for January and the transfer has the potential of going ahead if rumours of Cagliari having a bid for a replacement midfielder from Boca Juniors accepted are true.

I initially thought the links to Parades were there incase the above didn't go through. However, it seems likely that both the above players could be bought into replace Fabregas, Drinkwater and perhaps Kovacic who the club may not make permanent in the summer. Otherwise we could be overcrowded in that department.

I think from recent reports, sadly CHO will be sold unless the club manages to change his mind. If the kid decides to go then so be it. It's clear that his head has been turned. It's clear he would have been given a chance now, Sarri considers him very important. If he hasn't got the patience then that's up to him. This was supposed to be his breakthrough year and I thought he was being managed well. It's not like he has gone through how long it to RLC. Grass isn't always greener.

So this is what I've gathered so far:

Possible Ins
- Pulisic
- Barella
- Parades
- Hysaj *maybe a late push
- Striker (unsure who though)

CHO (I think he will be gone)

if we sign barella and paredes its real bad news for mason mount and any other talented lad coming through. hudson odoi has d best chance any cfc youngster has had over last few years and he wants out.

I wouldn't be surprised to see kovacic, barkley and Drinkwater go aswell as Cesc so moreso probably 3 out two in and promote one.

I’d imagine Mason would come in next year and replace RLC as he’ll likely want to leave as he’s way down the pecking order. I don’t really see the need to replace Drinkwater as he’s barely played at all. Can only imagine we’d get both Paredes and Barella if Kovacic wasn’t being signed.
