You will have all seen the reports of us targeting ‘England starlet’ Lewis Cook for around the £30m mark.
To me, this points to 3 possible scenarios.
- He’s our Davinson Sanchez of 2018. The ITK that nobody even vaguely picked up on. A target we’ve kept on the quiet.
- An alternative and/or smokescreen for the Grealish deal. Some will say that they are not the same kind of player, Grealish more of a No. 10, Cook more of a No. 8 or No. 4…but they’re identical in terms of profile and homegrown status.
- It’s a load of cobblers made up by a Press who have caught on that we need some English players, know Poch likes young prospects and have searched around looking for people that fit the bill.
What do you reckon?
