I keep hearing this. Worse than Lindelof would you say? Can't help but feel like a pacey left footed CB might just be what Maguire needs.I think he'd be bought to play as a deep-lying playmer/DM if a big club bought him. He's too weak aerially to be a central defender for a top 4 club
This, would be a great bit of business by Ole.... (AGAIN)Could be a decent low risk buy for the fee Bournemouth would want if they went down. Squad player fee. If he's better than that, perfect. Currently we have Lindelof, Bailly and Maguire who are fit. If we can get him for 20 odd mil, it could be shrewd bit of business. He's bought as a squad player for that money, or he's the perfect foil for Maguire and we get a cut price starting CB.
I was thinking about that myself. Especially considering it looks like he's talking about getting a left footed CB. Makes a lot of sense if we could bring him in.I like Ake. Woudnt be a bad buy at all, but is he head and shoulders above Lindelof? Probably not! If we're going to replace Lindelof, then it has to be a top class centre back, in my opinion.
Having said that, Ake does have the right attibutes to compliment Maguire.
Also, wonder if Ole is thinking of putting Maguire on the right?
