Re: Realistic transfer targets in January

Defence and GK positions are OK so midfiled and up front should be our priority.

Not knowing our budget but based on previous windows and comments here's my list.

Bowen - Hull
Watkins - Brentford
Pearson - PNE
Brownhill - Bristol City

Eze - QPR but probably go to a bigger club than us.
