Maybe he's valued at £20m, maybe he wants a prem move, maybe Cocu wants a defender better in the air. Who knows.
Nobody on this forum can answer that question.
Except @BagRam but he'll want to be respectful to his sources so may not be willing.
I assume we will play the team expected to start vs Huddersfield, our best team minus the injuries. At the moment I think that is:
Bogle Keogh Evans Malone
Dowell Huddlestone Sibley
Bennett Waghorn Lawrence
Its harsh on Lowe and Knight, and i wouldn't mind seeing either play instead of Malone and Sibley. I expect all 4 will get minutes.
Going off this XI and the squad in general, we need a winger and a centre half in before the end of the window as a bare minimum. A Keeper and a central midfielder should be the focus after that.
