Surely Jordan Larsson is a no brainier.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why, because he's Henke's son? His Moscow contract wasn't terminated because he was a top class player. HH.

{Ed007's Note - FIFA are allowing foreign players to terminate their contracts with Russian teams over the Ukrainian situation, Besty. There was previously talk that there was interest in him from England and teams weren't putting off by the €20 million fee, I think it was 20.
There will be plenty of suitors ready to sign Baby Larsson - probably more now that he is on a free but he isn't going to displace Kyogo or Gio so he would be that 3rd choice option and I don't think he would be happy to be that at this stage in his career.
Even if he did sign for us can you imagine the pressure he would be under just because of who his dad is?}

Think he has played a bit on the right wing as well Ed? If anyone can get a player going it’s Ange. Just does he fit the system?

{Ed007's Note - To be honest I don't know much about him but that's the thing, Ken, a lot of people are wanting to sign Baby Larsson simply because of who he is - it's like dreamy fairytale "birthday caird pish".}

28 Jun 2022 12:26:08
Yeah not for me. Expectation would be too big. He's never going to be as good as Henrik.

{Ed007's Note - And everyone in Scotland, fans, media and even players will always be comparing them. He'd become known as Henrik Larsson's son rather than Jordan Larsson, does that make sense?}

28 Jun 2022 13:07:42
I most likely do have a extra attachment with being brought up with Henrik being mine and many others hero of that time, but young larsson by all accounts can play a bit and for free I think I should at least be looked into, I definitely get the for and against arguments though! And does he fit into Ange style and what he looks for in a player who knows?

28 Jun 2022 13:24:11
On a free, he'd be a great option. The pressure of living up to his dad (which he won't) would be a worry.

28 Jun 2022 17:18:36
Mark, I thought that agreement with FIFA was only for the 2021/ 2022 season. Have they now made it allowable to terminate the entire contract? HH.

{Ed007's Note - My apologies, Besty you're right. I'm 100% convinced I read a while back they would be allowed to rip their contracts up at the end of thse season if it didn't look like there was going to be any change in the war. ? I just put the 2 together when I seen Baby Larsson had left his team.
Maybe it was an article saying it was something that could happen...

28 Jun 2022 17:38:04
No worries Mark, thanks for clarifying. I imagine he'll have a few suitors and if Ange thinks he's what we need then I'm sure he'll make himself heard. HH.

{Ed007's Note - To be honest, Besty it's not something I've paid that much attention to but that's got me thinking, if UEFA/FIFA have put sporting sanctions on Russia is their league going to be governed by those regs and what effect on players registrations etc will the sanctions have?}

28 Jun 2022 18:18:21
It would make sense that those rules would/ could/ should be extended to allow a player to tear up his contract without suffering as a result. I don't believe it's in place at the moment (I could be wrong) which would therefore suggest that Moscow and Junior have agreed to part ways for free, which is somewhat strange when he was being talked about in the £10-15m category at the beginning of last season.
Time will tell, there may be something else in the back story. HH.

{Ed007's Note - Yeah reading up on it he left them by mutual consent but he had a year to run on his deal, it's a strange one alright. I still don't see anything official from Spartak Moscow or Baby Larsson confirming it and the original source of every story about it is a Tweet from Fabrizio Romano, and we all know he's not the most reliable.}

28 Jun 2022 19:03:20
It's on Transfermarkt now as well that he'll be without a club from 1st July. HH.

{Ed007's Note - ?
