With the summer transfer window now having been open for a week, talk among fans has been mostly around the comings and goings at St Andrews.

Reports of David Stockdale leaving, in addition to one or two others, have grabbed the headlines in recent days, but supporters have also been considering who the club could realistically sign in the next few months.

On Twitter, fans were suggesting a wide range of possible targets:

Verdict:

Out of those suggested, the one that stands out for me is probably Marcus Maddison. A creative midfielder is precisely what we are looking for and the 24-year-old does fit the bill.

For Peterborough last season he scored 12 goals and provided 23 assists in 53 games. The fact he has been transfer listed as well means he will be looking to leave the Posh, and at 24 years of age, he is got the best years ahead of him.

Reading are also in for him so we will have to move fast if we are to land the playmaker.

  • With FFP hanging over us, I think Garry Monk will have to wheel and deal to balance the books.
    If a bid of 10million came in for Adams again, then maybe it would be the right time to take it.
    It would certainly allow Monk to go for the likes of Maddison, Woods, Dack or Powell.
    The fee for any of those would’nt be cheap, round the 5million I would think, there’s a lot of interest in them.
    I don’t know how Monk views loans, and considering out of the five we had last season, only one of them really worked, he’d have to be careful, but, Palmer or Baker both Chelsea would be decent loan signings to bring in.
    I think a creative midfielder is definitely the most important position to address whichever route Garry Monk go’s down.

  • We a good keeper if Stockdale goes .vorm and Hart would go on the cheap as I can’t see any prem clubs going in for them unless they go the promoted clubs but I can’t see it . Vorm is a bloody good keeper that is waisted on the bench at spurs and then Hart is not wanted at man city and he has said he won’t be going to wet spam .they are not young keepers anymore so dropping down to the championship might be a good shout they would do fantastic for blues as they are still hungry for first team football. Please let me know what you think
