Bit of a different vibe in Bournemouth’s Twitter camp about Lowe, they seem buzzing to get him. 
maybe us rovers have unrealistic expectations 

Hmm, maybe. After all, we just lost a 28 goal striker. The most any Bournemouth player scored last season was 15, in Solanke and Danjuma. Danjuma is gone now, and Lowe scored 14 last season, maybe they're thinking it's a cheap way to replace those goals. Our goal void is considerably larger so perhaps we are expecting more - arguably we need more, just to tread water.

We need a 'nasty, uncompromising, centre half and central midfielder, both with weight and experience too. We also need someone who knows where the onion bag is and can finish.

Kaminski, good as he is, also needs to command the 6 yard box and grow a pair!

All would complement our youth, it ain't rocket science but yet our current thick c**ts in situ, can't see it.

We know nowt, aye,

all right!

According to the lancs live:

Michael Obafemi - looks like he'll leave on loan. Bournemouth interested but we've probably moved on.

Ryan Hedges - we've had a bid rejected (£250k) and would need to at least double it. Free in the summer so might wait for a knockdown fee in Jan.

Reda Khadra - Sounds like the injury is stalling the move, could still happen though.

Jamal Lowe - Bournemouth interested (again) but would take £1m+ to land. We've made an enquiry but its likely to go down to the wire.

Tayo Edun - Should happen

Looks set to be a busy day of links but I'm sceptical we'll actually get much done.

Haha the surprise one is interesting.... 

Obafemi was always coming in on loan surely as part of Armstrong going the other way and Soton paying some of the salary...

Why are we even looking at hedges? We’ve got plenty of midfielders, two currently who can play the advanced role in Buckley and Rothwell with our best player in Dack to come back and nail that spot. Doesn’t seem to make much sense to me.

Does Hedges score goals?

Dack aside none of our other midfielders score enough

We don't need Hedges as we already have enough wide positions. 

Disappointed Lowe deal won't happen. 

And will be annoyed at Mowbray/Rovers for the lack of permanent striker signing if he doesn't happen

You would also assume  Swansea are selling him because they feel they can buy better.  He won't be a bargain and his goal record isn't great.  To be honest I had to google who he was.

Sounds to me like theres been a few token offers of half valuation flying around.

'We tried but...'      How serious are they actually ?

2 more loans in who can play wing/false 9/mid probably.

Surprise signing ..... Downing back on a 5 year deal !!!!!

I agree, he signed for 3 years last summer and now they want rid of him.....Wigan did the same in summer 2019 and then wanted rid of him, he didn't do enough.  A pie eater I know was saying he goes missing a lot in games.

Late interest in a cash purchase striker of Championship pedigree only to be thwarted at the last minute and have to settle for a loan or nothing instead?

Where have I heard that one before?

Not overly concerned about missing out on Lowe, personally. I think he'd improve us, but not massively and it's very unlikely that we'd be able to recoup the £1.5 million further down the line. 

 

If our strategy now is going to be buy young players and improve them, you can't be spending most of the budget on a good-but-not-great 27 year old.

Really struggling to understand why we made the effort to resign Chapman, he's shown a bit of promise, and instead we're bringing in a Brighton winger who's injured and has barely any experience. Then again I rarely understand decisions this club makes

 

I can only imagine this way we can get something in the way of a fee (or sell on) that wouldn't have been there last year had he gone to Shrewsbury. I certainly hope so, otherwise it makes absolutely zero sense.
