    Bayern written all over him, especially now that Ribery and Robben are gone.

    Does sound a good shout for Robben's cutting in role, but a few rumours of Brandt and Sane already for Bayern.

    Brandt operates centrally now. And surely City would be crazy to let Sane go. But yeah, Bayern don't have that much left to spend so won't be a surprise if they're in for Ziyech with that rumoured low transfer clause.

    I think Sane and Ziyech as replacements for Robbery would be a great start of rebuild for Bayern. I think Brandt looks more comfortable at that 8 & 10 hybrid role. I think another season at Leverkusen (at least if Havertz stays too) or move to Dortmund would be smarter for him.

    Yes please, especially if it’s true about the €25m clause

    I think he’ll be our backup option if we fail to land Sancho. For additional boost, he’s very good with his set pieces, no one in our team can take set pieces.

    Love us to sign him, tons of energy about him too, I'm not fussed if he's frustrating if he's attempting an eye if the needle pass in the final 3rd it's fine

    If we can't get Sancho, get this dude for the RW role.
    He fits the profile of players we should be targeting going forward.
    The right age.
    Ready to take the big step forward.
    Still has a lot to prove.
    Has an incredible amount of energy and work rate.

    I prefer him to Pepe.

    Ole Solskjaer mentioned about players that can excite the fans I think this chap could. Energy and skill and can score some good goals. Be good for us on the right.

    Fits profile for what we need on the right side

    Looks like a player in prime, can play in a problem position, very good talent and probably cheap.

    Get him!

    This signing makes too much sense so i expect us not too.

    Would fill the right wing spot, and if we hold onto Pogba pose a serious challenge for his place too.

    £25m i hope weve sorted this one early.

    Looks like he can play on the right wing can be good addition to our squad and can boost our right side attack immediately.

    From everything I read, he seems to resembles Di Maria from the La Decima season - flair, unpredictable, mad work rate and drive, good pressing, all round game, slighly rough (someone you'd not say is immaculately dependable on the ball). Which is actually a complement rather than a criticism. If we can someone like the ADM we thought we had signed as opposed to the one we did, then he'd make a really good addition to the team. Hopefully he isn't very frustrating on the ball as we need players who can help the cohesion of the unit and too many loose players who can give it away will be an issue

    This guy just turned 26 in March, or described in Lingard years, he's just a young kid and already a great player. If he is available for 25m, we would be fools not to bring him in.

    He can be a moody prick sometimes especially in front of the camera. He doesn't like journalists and talking about himself that much. I think thats mostly a Moroccan thing. But he's a hard worker and has got character and loyalty especially if you see how he's treating his mother and his own teamplayers. Performance wise, he has been the best player in the eredivisie for years now. But he's Bayern bound. He is the right type of player for the Germans.

    I don't think it is true. What he does have is an agreement with Ajax/Overmars. They agreed he'd stay another year and Ajax wouldn't play hardball this summer. But that doesn't mean he'll go cheap. I think he'll go for +- 35m.

    as above - Fortunately this is in the Mail so probably utter bollox:
    • Arsenal could sign Ajax star Hakim Ziyech for £25m after he revealed that a move to the Emirates would be the 'ultimate dream'.

    Don't really see where he'd fit into Arsenals plans, they seem to like the 3-5-2 with Lacazette/Aubameyang up top.

    I guess they could go back to 433 with Auba left Ziyech right but it wouldn't be as balanced.

    Di Maria description is quite apt. He loves to force play too much which could be a good thing or bad. He's predominantly left footed too.

    He is that kind of player. It's a bit exaggerated, but he will try to beat some opponents 10 times, lose the ball 9 times, all for the one successful move. This works in the Ajax team (although he still makes wrong decisions at times the team is under pressure and needs to keep the ball), because the team makes this creative role possible for him and when he makes a move other players already press in case he loses the ball. I don't think United is that team at the moment, and it could explain why he favoured Arsenal. Not sure if the PL is his kind of league, he might physically get run over.

    We'd soon knock that corner and free kick taking ability on its head.

    It's what we've done to pretty much every player we've bought in the past 6 years with a reputation for set pieces.

    He's talented but I just get the feeling he wouldn't fancy it in the PL.

    25m release clause for such a good player, we should try and get him, would be the first player we get for a reasonable price since feck knows when.
