We are now a giant in a land of minews. We need to use our name and the promise to go back to the Bundesliga to attract players. 

Junuzovic cost dirt. Surely there is talent to be pilfered from Sweden and Austria? 

Sure. Austria, Switzerland, Scandinavian, Balkan countries and the likes. I agree with you there. But I would say that it's still not easy to find players there who fit into our preferred profile (young, with enough potential to develop in the future, but also good enough already to help us instantly) and then convince their clubs to sell them for peanuts. Just seeing how negotiations over Kastrati went with Zagreb, it looks like we're not in a position to be offering more than ~2 million Euro for a player.

Even though we're making good money on Sargant and Milot? Damn. 

I hope that selling them + Jojo & Osako means we can reinvest at least 6-8 million into the squad, but I honestly doubt it. Our financial situation is precarious.

I wouldn't want to be in his position, to be honest. A bit hard to sign quality players with no money available 😅

He did create the problem by signing terrible players for too much money and not having quality players to sell. I really worry if we on counting on Füllkrug to be our striker this year.

Have we lost the option for Kastrati permanently?

I was very excited when he joined us. Unfortunately it didn't work out well though. :/

Hannover apparently do not intend to sell him, so that's probably the end of it, anyway...

Bielefeld confirmed they signed Kapino. Gradually Bremen's squad becomes critically thin.:(

At least the goalkeeper position is covered - Pavlenka (in new contract talks), Zetterer, dos Santos Haesler and Plogmann. I feel sorry for Kapino, though. A good keeper, waited for his chance, but just wasted years at Bremen.

Don't think we will see him playing instead of Ortega at Bielefeld, though.

Ortega is probably expected to leave, if not this then next summer? Either way, it's probably better to be a #2 goalkeeper in a 1. Bundesliga club than #3 in a 2. Bundesliga one... 😅

The next one...

A bit disappointed with the transfer fee. Reportedly only 4.5m with 1m add-ons.

 

Such an odd market if one of our genuine few high quality players (even though I didn't rate him as highly as others) leaves for 5.5 mil, but Josh Fucking Sargent goes for 10.

Premier League teams spend stupid money.  No way was Sargent worth 10mil.

Gutted. 

I would have loved for Augsburg to find some way to make this work. Absolutely love him. 

Bremen went to the bank with Sargent, I think Norwich will lose money on that deal.
