We were in for Haaland, that is for certain but if Real couldn't sway Mbappe away from a state funded club I don't think it is reasonable to expect us to compete with an even bigger state funded club.I think we may now have to accept we may not get most of our 1st, 2nd & 3rd choice this summer. We are simply not an attractive place for most of our “reported” targets.
Haaland - joined City
Tchouameni - joined Real
Nunez - joined Liverpool
Kamara - joined Villa
Bissouma - joined Spur
Ebiowei - about to join Crystal Palace
Enzo Fernandez - about to join Benfica
Timber - prefer to stay at Ajax
FDJ - our no.1 target, doesn’t want to leave Barca though, we can’t match Barca asking price yet
Antony - Ajax doesn’t wish to sell and sets high price tag
Eriksen - prefer to stay at London as reported
Martinez - still at early stage, Arsenal is reportedly interested
I have seen only reputable links for FDJ, Antony, Timber and Eriksen out of your list. Rest is just speculation and guessing.
