Erik Ten Hag identified Frenkie de Jong as primary midfield target, and current has no alternatives in mind. He was keen on the club wrapping this deal up in late June but doesn't want to waste funds on buying players who don't fit.
With that information, how do we setup this season with Bruno, McTominay, Fred, Eriksen, van de Beek and possibly Garner, Mejbri, Iqbal and Savage as our midfield options? Earlier today, the manager re-emphasized that he is happy with current midfield options. So, if EtH is keen on having Eriksen and Bruno at heart of our midfield, who should be the sole DM to make that system work? Or will we leave ourselves too open?
