    Maloney or Dietz would get my vote ahead of him based on playing in stronger leagues.

    Lots of potential, IMO.

    Absolutely. And if he moves to a league we can watch more easily, ...he'll get a lot more attention too.

    But the real question is, is he in the Balkans?

    always good to link the original report and not the aggregator

    Don't want to see him go to the EPL at this time.

    An intermediate step would be great. Even if an EPL club would loan him out, I'd prefer an intermediate club purchase him. I think that's in his best interest, even if delaying a move to the EPL would come with some financial risk.

    I also agree and hope he goes to the Bundesliga as a lot of players from the that area move there. If he makes it there then worry about the PL but going there now would most likely mean being loaned for years and to teams that don't have that vested interest in improving you. Lot of our players have fallen into that trap.

    Agreed EPL would be risky, but if Paqueta really gets the book thrown at him by the FA, there could be some minutes available at West Ham.

    West Ham is supposedly interested in Weston.

    God, a USA-Mexican engine room would be so saucy. Don't know if that's ever happened in a top league team before

    Feels like one of those where his agent put this out there to drum up interest. I doubt an EPL club comes in for him this summer.

    Yeah I think a move to a decent Bundesliga club makes a lot more sense.

    We all should take the agents’ test, what with our awesomeness at managing players’ careers.

    This is the sort of stuff a club will leak as well when they are hoping to cash in.

    If he goes to England now, he'll be joining someone's loan army and won't see the pitch for his buyer for the next 2 seasons

    Big 4-5 in the Netherlands, Belgium, Portugal will give him a real shot a t meaningful PT

    Otherwise a BL1 side whose reserve team plays in RL or the 3Liga

    He's one of the guys I'm most interested in seeing in a more visible league. I've yet to try to watch a match - just seen the highlights. Would be nice if he were in one of the easy leagues to watch. I'm pulling for the Eredivisie. :)
