    What has happened to the 2 players from Inter we were supposed to have in exchange for Osvaldo? It is about time they were here, if they are coming. Too much speculation on this player and that player. I think that Koeman should outline just who he is wanting in the team, and if there are on-going efforts to get them transferred in
    To be fair I guess it takes a while to get players to agree to up sticks from Italy to come to the South Coast - quite complex I imagine, and particularly if they are from a top club like Inter. Shame the club set unrealistic expectations on when these would be finalised, just hope they are in addition to the 'three signings' we've promised.

    Koe needs to pull a bit of a Coup I think - a signing that will start other players believing we are going in the right direction.

    I honestly believe it would only take one 'wow' signing (and I'm talking Dutch world cup star or someone linked with top clubs like Blind or the Argentinian guy) to change the perception entirely and make us a desirable destination again.

    We sold Chambers for £12M and considering Wenger thinks he can play centreback - an area we desparately need cover for - surely the way to make up for that is to spend £12M on his replacement - Rojo is apparently versatile and why we aren't rushing this one through when he's available for a similar fee is surprising.

    Until we make that kind of statement you'll find it hard to sell the vision to others and get in more quality while convincing the likes of Cork to sign up.

    Will it happen? We have the finances to make it happen for sure but we'd need to start aiming a bit higher and loosening the purse strings."

RUMOUR MILL, August 5 - Spurs offer Romanian defender to Saints as makeweight in Schneiderlin deal

Vlad Chiriches in action for Tottenham last season

Vlad Chiriches in action for Tottenham last season

TOTTENHAM have reportedly offered Romanian defender Vlad Chiriches to Saints as a makeweight in any deal to sign Morgan Schneiderlin.

Spurs only signed the 24-year-old centre half from Steaua Bucharest last summer for £8.5m, and he went on to play 24 times for the London club in all competitions.

There is also speculation today that Louis Van Gaal will consider selling striker Javier Hernandez.

The Mexican international has continually been linked with Saints all summer, even before Ronald Koeman’s arrival as manager.

The 26-year-old has scored 37 Premier League goals for United in 48 starts plus 53 sub appearances in his four seasons at Old Trafford.
