    It makes sense selling Kris this summer if he wont sign a new contract soon. Next summer will be buyers market as he'll only have one year left on his contract and we'll be forced to sell him for a cut price.

    Ajer has binned his agent......probably the AC Milan etc * * him off.... can see him signing a new deal and new agents lining up believable deals once the market stabilises after Covid impact

    What’s the general consensus on this change of agent?

    Indicates possible new contract ?
    Indicates a likely move ?
    Just fed up with his current reps?

    Not quite sure how to read it.

    I’d like to think he’s fed up with talk of a move and wants to stay for the Big Party.

    Personally I don't think his previous agent would've blurted out that he would leave without at least some private talks between those 2 of it. I don't think Ajer would've been enamoured in the way he disclosed it but they definitely would've discussed things.

    His contract with that agent was due to expire last month in any case. I think the most likely explanations are either A. He's * off at the way the agent acted in disclosing it or B. He's negotiated more favourable terms with the new agent in terms of % of fees

    If he isn't going to sign a new contract with us then we need to sell him this summer, we can't do another Boyata and let him get into the last 12 months of his contract.

    I’m hoping he has sacked his agent to benefit us.

    Would make sense.
    The lad will know himself he isn't the complete article yet.
    A new agent in to sort out a new deal, agent gets his cut etc. 4 year deal and we sell him in the next 12-24months. He moves on and we get a windfall, everyone is happy.(this is always said on the assumption players won't stick around for a decade or more these days).

    Got to be fed up with them.
    His agent had spent the past 18months touting him out, for me if ajer was happy with that and wanted the move he would have kept him and forced that move by now.
    The binning of him during this period says he was hacked off. Even surely a 6month to a year signing with the same agent during the pandemic etc would make sense if he wanted the move.

    Not saying he won't still move on this window, but all seems unlikely now and less so that the agent responsible for touting him out is now shown the door.

    For anywhere near the money being mentioned I'd be happy to see him go.

    Yeah he has a lot of potential and he is great and carrying the ball out from the back, but his actual defensive qualities for me are seriously lacking.

    He's a great big guy that can't head a ball and gets caught out of position quite a lot.

    If we got offered anywhere near £20 million for him, we'd be * stupid not to bite whoevers hands off.

    We could invest half of that on Forster and another years loan for Ely.

    Think he's a real decent player but around 20mill and we'd have to sell I think especially with only 2 years left on his current deal. To put it in perspective, that's near double what we got for VVD...if Kris signed a new deal or a couple of year extension then I'd not be interested in listening to any offers this year.

    Half of £20m on Forster? Surely including his wages in that?

    I am a fan of Ajer. I think he is a good player who will only get better but for sure if someone offered us 20m for him I would sell him no question.

    Don't get me wrong, I'd much prefer to keep Ajer and Ntcham, but I think both will leave this summer, same with Rogic albeit I think he's done here.

    Mate there's no way all 3 will leave this summer. No way..

    Can't remember a window where we've let arguably 3 first team player's leave.....nevermind a historic chasing season..

    Yeah can’t see all 3 going. I’d expect to sell a first team player, probably Ajer, and possibly sell another player provided we can get an offer that’s too good to turn down (rogic or ntcham).... I’d like to see us sell Ajer, I like him but I do feel we can probably get a much better defender for similar cash to Julien. If we do get offered around £20m for him.. you can’t turn that down for him. I think the best deal for us would be a bit of cash and Benkovic from Leicester.

    I like him but if we got 20 million and actually invested in a replacement and Forster I would be all for it

    That would be the ideal situation IMHO if we were able to get Benkovic and say 10m or so for Ajer.

    Out of those possible scenarios I hope he does move on. I’m an advocate of keeping our best players however I think Ajer is one player that we can replace with a better player.

    1 first team player, 2 squad players is the way I would see it.

    20M and Benko.
    If we could get 20M for him, that would allow us to get in FF and get a replacement center half, so that would be good business-1 first team player out and 2 in.

    I hope I’m wrong, but I can’t see why anyone would pay anywhere near the amount quoted on here for Ajer. If we were offered 8 - 10 million plus the usual % sell on clause we’d be doing well and that’s not taking into account the current global crisis.
