18 year old right back from Sampdoria. We've apparently offered €7 million for him.

Hmm, only six starts so far and really poor passing stats

I'm really hoping that this is confusion with Ricardo Pereira at Nice, as that's a player I'd really like to see, bit older at 23 so would compete straight away for the spot, great passing figures including a few assists. I mentioned him last month on my list of guys I'd fancy who we might be able to get

I know showreels always look good, but is an 18 year old really ready to step into the side. Yes if they come good then they count as home grown, but home grown isn't currently a problem anyway

This is another reason I think >22 would be safer, and if they played in Germany rather than Italy it's less of a culture shock coming over

Trade off being the yuonger you expose them to top quality training and opposition then the more they can grow

I really worry about chucking money at foreign potential. We haven't had much proven success so far.
Will please critics who want better value for money ...plus upsets Watford who think we have knicked him under their noses

Di Marzio is about as reliable a source you get in Italy.

Does this guy have the same jumped up pedigree as Iturbe I wonder ?

We sign him, he knocks around in the mud at Canford then disappears off the radar.....I'd rather 7 million Euros was chucked at the south stand or academy facilities as the latter is being blamed for the efforts of our feckless second string.

Well first see him in the 2nd round of next season's league cup

Pedro #Pereira (@sampdoria) prefers @afcbournemouth instead of going back to @SLBenfica @SkySport @SkySportNewsHD

The bloke tweeting it seems legit, working for Sky.

Given we have Adam Smith & Simon Francis not sure why we are getting another RB, surely the CB position is the priority
But haven't the majority of all the oracle's on here been moaning ever since Francis has been moved over to RB?
