I really don't know much about Christopher Jullien but he looks a proper unit and someone who could be a commanding presence. I remember last year being excited to be linked with Genk RB Joakim Mæhle. He looked really good but reckon it was just paper talk.

Scott McKenna looks like a unit and is a fairly commanding player in the air but it doesn't make him a good football player.

Loads of fans happy that we are potentially spending £8M on the guy without having seen him play and knowing he has only really played in the French lower leagues and his team narrowly avoided relegation last year.

Benkovic is proven in the league, knows the team, knows the club and would need no time to settle. I would rather we tried to push the boat out and sign him.

No one new nothing about van dike when he signed
And look how he turned out 👍🏼.

13 Jun 2019 20:19:38
Buster88 we have absolutely no chance of signing Benkovic permanently. If we did we would be in negotiations for permanent rather than possible loan.

Doesn't matter how much he cost or what league Jullien plays in. There is obviously a player there if we are interested.

Negative coments again. The club looks like its spending cash what wee have all been crying out for and you still find time to be negative. We could win the champions league this season and wee would still have fans on this page moaning about something.

13 Jun 2019 20:41:26
United Ireland you are right. I had never heard of the player untill today but France seems to be full of hidden gems of players these days so I'm confident if he signs will be good.

13 Jun 2019 20:43:54
united ireland agree with you. they don't seem to realise we have won everything trust lenny and the board, let's be honest here if the board thought the dark side are still crap they would no bet on lenny buying player they seem to supporting him, fans hahahah
young lad Motherwell seems to be on his way, i can't be annoyed with gossip but at least its coming from the motherwell side and genuine,
now get rid of dead wood loan them out if needed.
french eddy needs help upfront. we are doing our business quick so far and the window just opened.

"Crying out for spending cash".

8 on the bounce and treble treble. Highest wage bill probably in our history and it seems the only thing that will please some fans is to throw open the cheque book. Does the team need investment? Yes it does but just because a player is valued at £8M by his club it doesn't make him a player. Aberdeen put a similar price tag on McKenna that is my point. It seems people wanted him signed because he's expensive rather than what he can contribute on the pitch.

Kevbhoy I wasn't having a go at your post mate, more irked with the amount of fans I've heard today say they have never heard of the boy or seen him play but want us to sign him (I know you didn't say that and only commented on his physique) .

What's so negative about the post. Unless you've seen the boy essentially it's an £8M gamble. That fee could be paper talk pish and in reality it could be much lower bringing it in line with the Van Dijk transfer so aye maybe he is worth a punt.

philtim I agree it would be unlikely we could get Benkovic on a permanent deal but what I'm saying is Leicester paid about £13M for him, we already paid them a loan fee so add another £8M on that or a bit more and your not that far away from recouping what they paid. (Again that's if we are spending about that on a centre half) . If and it's a very big if we did get a permanent deal we would probably double the investment on him if he stayed injury free and had a few good seasons in Europe.

@buster most of us fans have not seen him play but our back room staff have no doubt this guy has been scouted for a wile and has been watched on several occasions. Since wee have been linked i have done some research on him and he looks promiseing watch a lot of his clips also. Looks like he can pick a pass from range can ping it quick from the back to attacking fowards wich sets a goal threating attack up his stats are good for that mostly always meets his target and his areial stats are good wich is something were are lacking a goal threat from corners. He has also win the u20 world cup and played along side some quality players in that team he must have something about him if he was part of the squad.

13 Jun 2019 21:29:34
How many are out of contract now?, how many are high earners?, I would make it a priority to reduce the size of the wage bill,

13 Jun 2019 21:36:02
And you also say just because his club value him at 8 does not make him good. Our club have shown intrest and are wanting to sign him because they see him as a player wee want at our club to take us foward and his club have says well its 8 million. Celtic have not says aww hese worth 8 million we will buy him he must be good if hese going for 8 million. Our club have made him there target and his club have slapped 8 mill price tag on him if wee want him. Our back room staff have definitely scouted and seen a lot of him you have not.

13 Jun 2019 22:15:02
Benkovic is a no brainer really. As good a player or better than we can attract.

Try to get him and fail. Fail better.

14 Jun 2019 01:27:10
Buster with the crazy valuations in EPL lately, try adding another £5m on top of £13m Leicester paid for him before he kicked a ball for us Last season. Added to that the games he did play for us he done well so this figure of £13m is a thing of the past. It will cost a hell of a lot more and I don't think he would be interested in a permanent move as it most likely would involve drip in wages.

14 Jun 2019 02:01:46
@aindoh. Lustig boyata de vries izzy allen are away already. i'd say that's at least 60 k a week of the bill 240 k a month so roughy if my maths is right about 2.8 mill a year of the bill already with more to follow ntcham will probaly be away hese probably on 15 to 20 a week. Plus all there bonus aswell. Gamboa is away to i think.

14 Jun 2019 13:09:45
United Ireland you have really missed the point I am making here.

As I've said it is irritating to see fans wetting themselves over us spending 8M on a player that they openly admit they have never seen play or heard of him.

Obviously the scouting team have seen him and and think there is potential, but not every signing works out and if we did pay 8M it would be a gamble. That's all I am saying.

He could be the next VVD or the next Rafael Sheidt.

14 Jun 2019 18:08:09
Nobodys wetting thereself maybe some fans are happy that the club is actual looking to spend money to improve us instead of loans. Look buddy were both celtic men here wee have our own thoughts on things. But were on the same side. let's kick on and get behind the manger and team and bring number 9.
