Have to consider that he’s not certain to be kept on by Chelsea. That has to mean that there is a gamble over his future level. He looks promising but the comparison with Barkley should be served as a reminder that nothing is guaranteed (and I say that as someone that likes/d Barkley).
Less than the tory from Chelsea who only stood out at Palace because he was taller than Cabaye
I get that but we’re probably in the market for decent gambles at the minute. I would envisage our new strategy is for players with upside potential rather than overpaying for players who won’t improve anymore.
Double barrelled name innit
Yes that’s fine. But that’s how he should be thought of rather than someone who would come in and be a guaranteed performer week in week out. There’s talk of how he’d transform our midfield etc but I don’t think his consistency is near that yet, so some would be in for a shock (especially given the fee we’d probably have to pay).
I don’t think they’d be selling him. They’ll more than likely want him to do another 12 months on loan somewhere outside of the top 6, in which case we’d be in a decent position for that.I suppose it’s just whether Silva sees a role for him, seeing as his best position seems to be further forward and we have Sig for that.
Nowhere near good enough yet for us to loan him as a development year for them. Hes not like Lukaku who would improve most teams as a guaranteed starter. If were taking gambles on promising players then Id hope that would be after players to actually sign at that stage in their career so we reap the benefit of their improvement.
Fair enough. It's all about opinions.The whole midfield is slow, stale and needs a complete revamp though. If our focus is on a new, starting 11 quality left back and centre half we might not have much money left if we can't shift out as much as we'd like, therefore a few loan signings of this nature might be a way of bridging that gap while Brands shapes the squad over the next few windows. I personally think he's got the potential to be a top player. His next move will be a key one.
