Following on from yesterday`s rumour circulating around the news agencies of interest from the Latics in Spurs midfielder Danny Murphy, the new speculation this morning surrounds Portsmouth forward Lomano LuaLua
Apparently Pompey boss Harry Redknapp is willing to let the former Newcastle and Colchester man leave for a fee believed to be around the £3 million mark.
With the Latics losing out on one forward this week, Marlon Harewood opting for Villa Park and not the JJB, it appears that some people are making the connection between LuaLua and the Latics a viable one.
Latics boss Chris Hutchings is currently in Holland with the rest of the squad on the pre-season tour and it is safe to say any transfer dealings would be on hold until the Hutch is back in the country tomorrow (Friday).
Hutch has stated that he requires three more players to strengthen the squad, a forward, central midfield player and a left back but I wouldn`t think that LuaLua is the type of player that the club sees to be able to fire in the missing goals of the past two seasons
One ex-player in the news this morning is Pascal Chimbonda
The ex-Latics man is again attracting the attention of Chelsea who are rumoured to have made a bid of £8 million for the France international.
This smacks a little of last summer and the Spurs bids that finally took Chimbonda away from the JJB, what goes around comes around as my Grandma used to say.
Would LuaLua be a good signing for the Latics?
Which players would you like to see targeted for possible moves to the JJB?
