This would be another 'good' Brands signing though.
Experienced enough at a top level that we know it wouldn't be £14-£25m wasted and young enough at 24 to know that if it doesn't work out, we'd still be able to sell him after 2-3 years for a decent fee.
Whether he's good enough we'll see but it's the type of signing we need to be making.
Any other position and I'd agree, but we need some serious quality in midfield, not just average / decent with some sell on value.
It IS the type of signing we SHOULD be making by and large, but we also need to address the midfield issue with something that doesn't have the potential Iwobis about it.
From what I can gather he's neither the defensive destroyer or creative maestro we need, he's more Schneiderlin, which I feel with Gomes and Davies we already have that role covered. Just not seeing how this would push us to top 4 levels
