Walcott looked every inch the 20million player but did sigurdsson really look like a £45m attacking?
His stats are good but they are beefed up by his set piece delivery. I would argue for £45million you probably want someone who dictates the game a bit and has our football flowing through him. This is what Rooney does, even if he is not always effective.
If you consider what the Van Dijk's and Laportes of the world are going for then yeah.
OK, Aubamyang has standardised the market downwards a little bit.
But the fact you thinkg Walcott "looked every inch the £20m player" show syou are a bit off-kilter/out of date with values.
Tosun has had 18 good months in Turkey and the £27m we got him for was a reasonable amount.
