One person on Twitter put the name of Sheffield Wednesday’s Fernando Forestieri out there as a potential signing for the club.
However, many fans doubt the club could afford the Italian, and there was then some debate over the financial situation at the club with Financial Fair Play to consider.
Some supporters don’t believe the club will pay much in the way of transfer fees this summer:
No chance. We don’t have any money #bcfc

@kyle_colclough I’m sure Monk will be targeting players, will just need outgoings before he can act (not saying the Forestieri link is true).

Why do people keep saying this? We have money just have to be careful how we spend it due to FFP

That's just speculation

Yes, yes we do.

We do have money. We just can’t spend it

A source at the club has told Vital Blues that no player will be sold purely because of FFP. They will only leave if they are not wanted by the manager Garry Monk.
With the club having already saved a substantial amount on player’s wages after ending the loan spells of Jeremie Boga, Sam Gallagher, Carl Jenkinson and Cohen Bramall, there seems to be more room for manoeuvre.
Whether that will translate into transfer funds being made available, we’ll have to see.
