there’s more than you think. all the names suggested are great ideas, some more would includeThere’s not many high quality left footed centre backs who fit the profile and price we’ll be looking for.
Hincapie at Leverkusen is going to be available but he shares the same agent as Moises, and will have other clubs interested,
Facundo Medina from Lens could be interesting, and is a current Argentine international.
lorenzo pirola - youngster from inter on loan at salernitana. probably won’t get a look in next season, but is a great player. expert at the defensive nitty-gritty, and can ball-play well enough too.
maxime esteve - montpellier player, have already been linked.
jacob greaves - hull. this is our BDB replacement. not as tall but brilliant technical and leadership ability, and can double as a left back
diogo leite - on loan at union berlin from porto, having a stellar season.
dinos koulierakis - PAOK. mentioned him before, still quite young and not playing at an amazing level but he will be a rolls royce of a player
william pacho- royal antwerp. along with hincapie, the other excellent left footed ecuadorean centre back in existence at the moment
abakar sylla - club brugge. absolute beast of a player, great distribution too. will be the starting cb for ivory coast for the next 10 years at least.

goncalo inacio - sporting CP. bit of a pipe dream this one as he’d cost at least as much as colwill, but a technically superb player who is probably the one best suited to our system.
obviously not all of these will have the attributes, mentality and be at the right value for us, but there should definitely be SOMEONE out there who does
