The first one through the door.
Let’s just hope that it’s the first of many, although I just hope that they aren’t all going to be free agents, there’s being thrifty and then there’s going overboard.
According to a report from journalist Richard Wilford, Blues are set to complete the signing of Elche left-winger Ivan Sanchez on a free transfer.
The 27-year-old had a bit of a down year last campaign only scoring one goal and registering four assists, but with thirty goals and 16 assists across his whole career, let’s just hope we can put that down as the exception rather than the rule.
How much will Blues spend in this window?
More than £15m
£15m or less
Whilst this isn’t necessarily a position that we desperately need right paying attention to right now, with goalkeeper clearly being the priority, there was still plenty of excitement among the supporters when the news popped up on social media, excited that we might not have to wait much longer to see our first signing of the summer.
Looks like he's played mostly as an inverted winger – a left footer on the right hand side.
Which is good, considering Bela will be on the opposite flank.

Hopefully another Jérémie Bela 👍

With hopefully this deal and bela on the wingers we got some pace and quality now in that area.

That’s a decent signing. A really positive sign of things to come? 🤞#bcfc

Ivan Sanchez will be a massive signing, with him and Bela on the wing Juke could score a bucket load next season #bcfc
