    All of the best performances I've seen from Lozano for both PSV and Mexico were him playing LW in pretty much the same fashion as Martial.

    And you have seen much from him playing both on the right and the left then?

    Seems like this one is completely made up. Dont think he has what it takes to make it here.

    Avoid.

    According to whoscored he has played for he has played RW 15 times scored 8 goals with 6 assists,LW 10 times scored 6 goals and 1 assist,AM 3 times 1 goal and 1 assist.

    He can play in multiple positions,but I agree with you,I think that his best position is LW(I stand to be corrected).

    For Mexico he looked a different player when they switcfhed him, cutting in on his strongest foot seemed his biggest weapon to me. For PSV he played decently and was on the LW, I've not seen him on the RW for them in the EL games I saw.

    Interesting, are those stats all for PSV this season in the league?

    I think our transfers in central midfield will be influenced by Herrera's contract. If he signs, i don't think we will be in market for anyone.

    We have Smalling who has played very well with Lindelof. If (unlikely...) we bought De Ligt and felt he wasn't ready for certain games, (also unlikely), we could play Smalling. Or even push Smalling to RB if Dalot isn't defensively solid.

    Re: the tweet, I'm happy if this is true. Hopefully we aren't looking at Bale etc. Don't think we should sign any player in their late 20s for big money. If we could get one cheaply or on a free, like RvP, Falcao, Zlatan, Larsson, Owen etc I would have no complaints. It also MAY suggest we are looking at De Ligt and Sancho. Or could be AWB and Felix. Or Magnuss Eikrem. Can't wait for the summer!

    He can play for a solid 5 years. I think signings like Perisic who has been abysmal this season and has one or two seasons left in him are what the club wants to avoid

    No disagreement.

    Wasn't Perisic around the same age when Mourinho wanted him? Also Koulibaly's game relies a lot on his considerable physical attributes, at £100M that might be considered a risk for a 28 year old.

    Shouldnt be any surprise and if true good to see, he has been following the proper traditions of the club, so good if he does transfer wise too.

    I wouldn't even take Lozano over Lingard down the right. He's not good enough to make the starting 11 and is in bad form as of late, some Eridivise talents are worth a mention but I think him and Bergwijn are overrated. If we are looking for an effective winger than I think Nicolas Pepe is more proven as Ligue 1 is more competitive.

    Club should prioritise Sancho for the RW position.

    Different positions. A winger requires a much better engine than a CB. We need instant quality alongside building for the future. Our scouting network is vast but can never seem to pick out top players in the positions we need. It depends on what we are aiming for, if we want to challenge for the league we need a CB in his prime. De ligt is mature beyond his years but still not ready. Koulibaly is the best option in my opinion. If we are building to challenge in the next 3 years then De ligt would be a good option.

    I wasn't thinking so much about engine or stamina, moreso that Koulibaly's speed and athelticism are a key part of why he's a good defender, and those are attributes that can nosedive fast when a player gets a bit older, I'm just saying at £100M it's something the club might be taking into consideration. As for de Ligt, who knows, he's a natural leader and performing against teams like Bayern and Lindelof, and on top of that Smalling is playing quite well alongside Lindelof so it's not like we would be pinning everything on de Ligt hitting the ground at 100mph.

    I'm guessing this means that Zidane wants Pogba and Kante at Madrid next season.?

    Pogba or Kante. Not both. And it's speculative. Ortego says "I believe Zidane will try to bring in Pobga or Kante."

    I don't think they'll get either, by the time they buy a CB, Hazard and a striker they'll not have enough for them, I could actually see Rabiot ending up there on a free now.

    Get hazard before the season end. And Sanchez while you're at it, Zidane.

    To be fair, with the mess that is going on at Roma, Zaniolo should jump ship for his own sake.

    We’re going to be hearing these Pogba to Madrid rumours all summer aren’t we?

    Wasn’t there talk of him discussing a new contract with us a few months ago though?

    He won’t be jumping ship to Newcastle. Real Madrid perhaps!

    3 years left on his contract and he's our best player at the moment. His price has gone up since Mourinho left it must be 200m mínimum.

    I think he could do well in the position lingard is currently playing as well.

    I can't see Madrid meeting our asking price when they have so many other issues to address in the same window.

    Eriksen is way more likely as a creative, attacking midfielder.

    Why would we even have an asking price? Who exactly are we gonna buy that's gonna do for us what Pogba can? There's no way of Real matching any asking price because there's shouldn't be one. The only way Pogba leaves is if he creates a real fuss about wanting to leave and even then we shouldn't cave in. We don't wanna be setting this precedent again of Real coming for our players.

    Why are people that worried about Pogba leaving? If he does go it will be for an astronomical fee and Coutinho is available, who is more than capable of filling the role of Pogba.

    It's likely Pogba will leave at some point anyway... As long as we try to adequately replace him.
