Scouting Report - Transfer Window

Scouting Report - Transfer Window
<div style='background-color: #0B610B;'><a href='' title=''>amazon banners</a></div>

So I've decided to post my ideal shopping list for the final week of the transfer window based on our needs and also based on VVD being sold.

"I think we can get in 4 young but talented and with decent experience players"
Munas Dabbur - 23 year old Israeli striker playing in Switzerland for Grasshoppers. Not in Europe but doing well at the top end of the league. 7 goals and 7 appearances, is used to playing as a front 1, has height and strength, he also has 6 assists which says he links up well with others.
Cost - 3-4m

Berat Djimsiti - 22 year old Albanian defender, not represented his country yet having previously played for Switzerland U21s. Can play anywhere across the back, literally he has played at RB, CB and LB so far this season. He's quick, he's strong, good on the ball and going forward and his versatility would be a big help! A lot of footage shows him at LB so comfortable playing there until a new LB is sorted.
Plays for FC Zurich in Switzerland who've had a terrible start to the season and just appointed Sami Hyppia as their new manager.
Cost - 1.5-2m

Georgi Terziev - 23 year old Bulgarian international defender playing for PFK Ludogrets in Bulgaria. Has experience of Champions League, CL qualification and Europa league experience and is comfortable as a CB or RB. Big, although not the tallest for a CB but he's strong and quick and reads the game well.
It would solve a CB problem as well as a possible RB problem. Adds another RB cover anyway.
Cost - 1.5m

Takashi Usami - 23 year old Japanese international attacker. Plays as a striker leading the line or in behind the secondary striker role, can equally play out wide as well. Tricky player, very direct, has a knack of scoring and spent time with Bayern Munich when still only a teenager. Things didn't work out for him in Germany, perhaps a little too young but since returning to Japan, he's been fantastic! Could add a real spark to the team!
Cost - 1.5-2m

Altogether, I believe we could add 4 players, all of which I think should be available, for 8-9m. Basically if we spend the VVD money, I think we can get in 4 young but talented and with decent experience players to really add to our squad!

If you want to go with an out and out LB, I'd go for either:

Jere Uronen - 21 year old Finnish international LB playing for Helsingborgs.
Taleb Twaitha - 23 year old Israeli international LB playing for Maccabi Haifa. Or
Riza Durmisi - 21 year old Danish international LB playing for Brondby.
All 3 of these would be available for less than 750k.
