With only eight days remaining in the window, the transfer speculation is intensifying, and clubs are rushing to complete their business. Despite the seven signings that we’ve already completed, it seems that we’re still in the market for new signings.  One such deal could see the free agent, Bernard, join the club.

According to Football.London we’ve been linked with a move for the versatile winger following the expiration of his contract with Shakhtar Donetsk. It’s reported that we’re not the only club interested in signing the Brazilian international, both Chelsea and AC Milan are also interested in his services.  He is valued at £14.4M by transfermarkt.

Verdict:

Bernard is exceedingly versatile; he can play on either flank or as a number 10. Such adaptability would be of massive benefit to the team, and it would provide the team with depth and competition. During his spell in Ukraine, he has amassed a decent goal-scoring record (28 goals in 157 appearances), and he could be a useful addition to the team.
