Iíd like to see his numbers as I only going off the old eye test but powerful cmís who can change gears and tear up up the pitch are great in the prem and he can do that, plus heís had a few assists from the middle this year hasnít he? Didnít he have a hand in every single Watford goal until Christmas or something ridiculous?
I like press resistant cmís who can power through a midfield like 2014 yaya and score or assist.
I would only Ďspend bigí and by big I mean fucking huge, like spend half the budget big, on superstar attackers. Everything else can be found relatively cheap if you donít mind developing a player and waiting.
The bagman has to arrive with goals good to go.
You can see his shot map here. Make sure to select 2017-18 from the drop down menu.https://understat.com/player/1726
I don't have a pass map but I'd be willing to bet that it has a lot
of sideways business. He has 2 assists which is roughly in line with the above model's expectation (I have no clue about how the model works so take that with a grain of salt). His dribbling isn't impressive either (per WhoScored).
He strikes me as a total eye test player. Physically impressive, doesn't lose the ball much, but ultimately doesn't do enough (passing, dribbling, or shooting) to be worth the fuss.
