Aub and Ab on the radar

Right, let's try and ignore (if not actually forget about) the McManaman furore for a bit and instead focus on what might happen in the summer. Yesterday's papers contained details of a couple of possible transfer targets - needless to say, both are based in France...

We've been linked with St Etienne's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for a while, but, with the Gabon international continue to score with abandon in Ligue 1, it's now being reported that the bigger fish have woken up and started taking an interest. Whether we qualify as a "big club" in relation to Chelsea, Arsenal and moneybags PSG is questionable.

Meanwhile, a new link (to me, at least) is to Toulouse's Tunisian international Aymen Abdennour, though the story there is much the same, with Barcelona apparently already sniffing around. If we are indeed interested, then it suggests plans are already afoot for coping with life without Sideshow Bob. MYM and Saylor have generally been an excellent partnership since our skipper picked up his injury against Stoke, but with only the increasingly hapless Mike Williamson in reserve we would certainly need additional cover in that position.
