I would love a playmaking cm but i think we have a lot of players in the central position and will probably make do. Expecting a lot of our creativity to come through the wide areas this year with the centre to hold and give it to them via Sigurddsson. I would be really happy with the three coming in. Anything else is a bonus after that.
Iím surprised Iím seeing so many people who are alright with it. For me itís a major requirement this year.
Maybe the plan will be let Schneiderlin drop diagonals into the channels for Walcott and Richarlison but I really do think we could do with an actually good midfielder.
I like the Sigurdsson as a box to box player theory and I like the dowell as De Bruyne ball player theory if either of them worked Iíd be alright with it. Sigurdsson can deffo get up and down and he works hard. Dowell looks miles off the prem for me but I like the idea that silva can unlock him and get him spraying balls and sliding through balls.
