I haven't heard much of Giovanni but Louka I have and he is quite a talent from what I have seen of him.
Could be a good piece of business and as Original said it would raise us a level as a team.
Lets see how both fair up and if we get them.
Giovanni is 99% signed and he's considered one of the three best left backs in Brazil.
Yes I just read on aek365 Original.
Good signing as we need to cover that position, Soelidis is good but does have the tendency to fade out in games and gets beaten easily at times. Correct me if im wrong but the goal we copped in the Kypello vs Oly in the dying mins was because he didn't track his runner at the far post. I could be wrong but I am pretty sure it was him....
It was and he was getting burnt all day against Olympiakos. This is gonna be the first time in years where we have two wing backs that can cross the ball B).
Thought it was him Original and you took my next point already his crosses at times are sh*thouse too.
With these two on the left and right and can cross, the balls Djebbour (or another striker) will be running onto will be great!!!
Any word on a keeper yet?
Would also hope we get another striker aswell
So as it stands;
Still need a GK and either RW/LW of good quality and possibly another ST
Are any players going to be sold? Rovas? Petavrakis? Grontis? Brecevic? Faye? Dounis? Zoric? Sarris? Surely one of the GK's Vouras or Dounis.
Good to see we have bolstered our defence and midfield with good players, now we need another winger for sure, I don't see Platellas and Barbosa cutting it all season, we can also have Aravidis there and we all know what he is capable of but one more wont hurt. A striker is a must also and as said above a keeper.
Anestis wont cut it!!!
Goalkeeper is priority, Anestis is terrible
Winger next because like Original Sydney said, Barbosa and Plattelas the hog aren't going to cut it
Then maybe a third striker, but you shouldn't be too worried about that since you already have Aravidis and Djebbour
Kyriakos Andreopoulos, a young kid from Kerkyra that played a full season as a starter, will be announced later today or tomorrow. He can play as defensive midfielder, as an attacking midfielder, and as a right back. He will take over Fage or Grontis' or Zoric's spots since they will be loaned out most likely. Andreopoulos was given an offer from Olympiakos which he turned down and chose us.
According to the Dutch football magazine Voetbal International PAOK and AEK are interested in keeper Robbin Ruiter of FC Utrecht. He is 28 years old and his contract ends in the summer of 2017. Therefore a transferfee is needed to sign him.
Vargas is in Greece right now to take a medical and sign with us.
Vargas officially announced for two years, Andreopoulos officially announced for three years.
Vargas is from Venezuela so he knows all about a country turned upside down due to financial chaos. I doubt this would phase him. Same goes for most Argentine players given their countrys history.
The reality is that Greece is more stable than most countries.
According to reports in Venezuela we've signed Alain Baroja from Caracas, he was the starting goalkeeper for Venezuela in the Copa America. But according to Greek reports we are looking at other options as well and Baroja is stand by as a plan B, whenever we want we can announce him officially.
Looking more into this guy and I don't think he's that good, I would hope we look into other options, Markos Vellidis from Pas Giannina should be looked into as he's a very good goalkeeper IMO and one of the few Greeks that could start for this AEK going for a protathlima.
Very true, Vellidis is a solid goalie at a good age. Starting material. He's even earned a NT call up
Sarris, Dounis, Rovas, and Karagiolidis have been told to not come to our first practice tomorrow and to find a new team. Fage, Grontis, Zoric, and Petravakis will practice and fight for a spot and if they can't prove that they are good enough will be loaned out. Georgeas is deciding whether or not to retire. Chrisantus and Brecevic are both practicing with the team but it's not certain which one of the two are staying for the new season, they will battle out for the 3rd string striker spot and I prefer Chrisantus.
Im starting to warm to the players we are signing as the team is going from strength to strength, now we need a keeper to compliment the others we have brought in.
I would also like to see another striker come into give Djebbour some competition also...
We are looking the goods so far boys!!!!
Giovanni's manager and his father coming to Athens tonight to finish the deal, rumors are we offered 1 million euros to his team for him, trela lefta for a left back.
Wow that is big money for a LB.
What you think Original is he really worth that much?
Guess they have to splash if they want someone of his calibre but is it too much?
I've never seen him play so I can't comment on whether he's worth it or not. But i do know that Melissanidis is cheap, and he wouldn't spend this much on a player unless he was really worth it, I trust their judgement.
Giovanni is officially an AEK player, waiting for him to arrive in Athens to be announced.
