    Interesting, maybe a substitute for Nakajima?

    If I were Kanazaki, I'd probably stay in Japan at this point. He's a star-level player in J. League and he had his chances in Europe.

    i wouldn't, honestly he did all he could in Japan and playing in the Portoguese first division must sound pretty exciting.

    Ko Itakura is rumored to have a few offers from Belgium and Netherlands. Hopefully Misao and Nakayama can move to Europe soon too.

    Itakura had some really good games at the U-23 and then a decent year with Vegalta. I think it's normal having some clubs taking infos about him.

    Good choice. Eredivisie is always a good place to feature in.

    First big name exit from Kashiwa.

    Now, looking to the other two: Kosuke Nakamura and Junya Ito.

    Let's see where they will end up by the end of January.

    Ko Itakura has been signed by Manchester City and sent on a 1.5 year loan to Groningen.

    So I’m guessing that this is some how part of a deal for Doan in the future.

    City have been rumored to be after Doan's signature, and are probably looking to strike up a partnership with Groningen to replace NAC Breda, where the relationship has seemingly deteriorated. Uriel Antuna is also on loan from City to Groningen.

    But I'm not sure that simply renting Itakura out for free would be enough to justify City getting first call on Doan - it would be in the context of the whole club relationship. Even if they did buy him they would have to loan him out again right away.
