We will get no one in the winter - Maybe a mediocre mid to complete the team but we will get no one who will make a difference
and we wont get Saponara or players like him either as we know how Marotta works... Marotta is a slow negotiator so we will probably wrap up Floro Flores by the summer
I wish Khedira would stay fit but he probably won't. So yeah we could use a Gundogan or a Kovacic but not in the Winter. Assuming the clubs would even entertain us they'd still want an extra 50% on top of whatever already high valuation they have for their players.
There was never a chance of him moving to Juve in the first place even if he were to go on loan. He wanted to go on loan to get playing time. He wasn't going to be a starter here.
Saponara, understandably, isn't going anywhere in January. Empoli repeated that many times. He'll move only in July. Saponara's agent also stated that his client doesn't want a move now because being a starter for Empoli provides him with the best opportunity to make Italy's squad for Euro. And he isn't good enough to be a starter with us let alone be a difference maker.
For vice-Lichtsteiner we should be after Joao Cancelo. This guy will be huge, saw him play few times, and he is great in both offense and defense department, great crossing, great through balls, really good tackling and interceptions. He is only 21 years old, and if Valencia doesn't qualify for UCL this season, I think we have a good shot at getting him.
