Burnley maybe if they need a new leftback? Aston Villa if they get promoted?

Division 1 talent is tested by the Premier League club: "Giant Gadget

A chance that many talents dream of is to get off on a test game with a foreign big club. This chance, Rynninges 17-year-old Viktor Hallin has now received. Next week he is tested by PL club West Ham.
- There will be a lot of fun, I'm very happy, says Hallin to NA .

Örebro Club Rynninge has had a tough start to the season and is currently in a bottom line in Division 1 Northern.


But a player who stuck out, despite being limited in playing time, is the club's young talent Viktor Hallin. The 17-year-old got a-team contract this winter and has now got a chance that many people dream of. On Sunday, he goes to London to train with West Ham's b team next week.

- I talked to them the days after they were here, and they said they liked my ability to push the ball forward in speed, and to get to the finish quickly. That's what they saw immediately as they got stuck, Hallin says to NA.

The training coach Stellan Carlsson predicts a great future for the promise.

- This is super cool for young players, or any player. It is like this you always wanted to do yourself. It is super cool that he gets the chance, and fun for the club that it is a Rynninge player. As a person, Viktor is a very serious and ambitious football player, and a kind guy. Then it's always extra fun, when there are humble people who get the chance, says Carlsson to NA.

A player with excellence.

- Relatively small, but quick and good. He has made great progress and has been with training for a while with the a-team. He had some injury problems last year, and has not really got the chance yet but he will get it. If he remains in Örebro, people will know who he is in the near future.

Ag. Edimilson to VN: "Soon to talk about the future, with Montella there is an excellent relationship"

Image

The knot tied to the future in purple by Edimilson Fernandes keeps the bank at home in Fiorentina ( CLICK HERE ), and to try to shed more light, Violanews has exclusively contacted the boy's attorney, Franco Moretti , to learn more:

Mr. Moretti, the season is ending, what can we expect for Edimilson's future?

"The boy is very happy with his experience with Fiorentina, he found himself very well, and is very happy to be in Italy. It is still early to talk about the future, also because Edimilson is completely focused on the season finale, as two very important races are still waiting for him. At the end of the championship we will meet with the company and the coach and we will talk about the boy's future, trying to take the best route for everyone. With the new coach Montella there was immediately a good relationship, the boy is very happy ".

Looking through their signings over the last 5 years or so, can probably expect them to be paying £7/8m for him at most. They've paid as much as £13m for the likes of Mario Suarez and Giovann Simeone but they probably came in with bigger reputations than Fernandes.

Given the players he's going to be behind (Rice, Noble, Wilshere, any new signing) feels like one that can be dragged out to see where other deals end up.

I used to live in Bergamo and saw a lot of him at Atalanta. He burst onto the scene as a teenager, this guy is a serious talent. He has also been far from 'dire' at Milan, have you actually seen him play? Or did you just trawl through an English-speaking Milan forum where no one is good enough for their club?

The above says it all mate. Have a read through that forum, full of morons, much like Inter's English speaking one "Forza Inter". Full of kids whose understanding of football is based on FIFA and Football Manager.

Another thing is just because Kessie isn't god enough for them AC Milan doesn't mean he's not good enough for a club our level. :thup:

How many of our players would walk into AC Milan's starting 11?

Is Kessie only on loan at Milan?

Also is it pronounced Kessy or Kesseyay?

Arnie wouldn't get in above Piatek.
Anderson, definitely would get in.
Rice, possibly.
Diop, probably not above Romagnoli/Musacchio.

How many people have been on this thread asking for a young centre midfielder who is athletic and can get around the pitch to sit with Rice? We already have 1 on our books IMO he's just never been given a chance to show it.


:lol: The kid's had loadsa chances!!

Miles too lightweight for the Prem, who often went hiding - not good enough. I'll be glad to get the £7m and get him off the wage bill.

Get a proper strong, athletic, box-to-box midfield general instead please!

Thought he was ok to be fair a couple of games. even played fullback for us I seem to remember but to fund the pelle revolution we will need funds and out of all our players there are not many who will command fees. Fernandez is one though so need to sell. we need the strong athletic kouyate type but with a football brain.

Fernandez 10m
Hernandez 10m
oxford 3m
hughill 5m
perez 5m
cresswell 10m
cullen 3m
obiang 10m
this lot should bring in around 56m
plus 30m transfer fund gives us around 86m to play with.
5/6 players needed though

going to be tight

Yeah, caught him a few times this season - as I said, my view of him is pretty much in line (maybe a bit less forceful) with those comments. Seems a bit of a headless chicken at times, positionally and with regards to awareness of his teammates, running into/down blind allies, trying shots when a cross is clearly the better option, passes going astray.

Possible I've just missed his good/great performances this season as I'm not sat down watching AC Milan every week, admittedly, but the three performances that do spring to mind are against Torino recently, the Milan derby in March, and I think Juve last winter - he was poor in them all. And I mean noticeably poor, to the point where it's still in mind.

Still, only 22 (I would have sworn he was 25+ by now!) so with a bit of coaching maybe he could come good (in my estimation) for us. I fear him being like a marginally better Kouyate, though - in fact all the points I dislike about Kessie are the ones I disliked about Kouyate when we had him.

That's true, but the things I've noticed and don't like about him are things like technique, awareness, alertness, concentration - these aren't things that don't make you not good enough for one team.

As I said, I think we need something else in central midfielder - intelligence and foot speed, as opposed to strength and physical pace. I'm not convinced Kessie is the right player for us.

I respect your opinion Yorks, for me he's miles ahead of Kouyate technically and mentally too. A lot of quality players struggle to shine at Milan atm, something isn't right at that club still, similar to Man Utd over here.

:thup: Cheers Patito, and same from me to you - happy to agree to disagree.

On a related point, are Milan still struggling with FFP compliance, even with the new owners in charge? Might be that they need to shed a few players in the summer, so could lend some credibility to the rumours.
