As January`s silly season rapidly approaches, Joe Kinnear has started to call out his prospective transfer targets as he looks to strengthen our paper thin squad. With the side totally lacking in midfield cover, it seems like defenders are on his wish list. He said:

‘Lucas Mareque is a player we are looking to bring in from Independiente in the January transfer window and we are trying to find out what that would entail. He is 6ft 2ins and height is something we could do with in our back four. We have looked at the way our own Argentinians Jonas Gutierrez and Fabricio Coloccini have settled in and we have spoken to them about Mareque and they have given us glowing reports.

We are also monitoring the situation at Hearts with their left-back David Obua, but like a lot of other clubs we’re monitoring a lot of players.’
