    Is left footed so can cut inside from the right and curl it in like Robben :drool: (in theory)

    Technically a very good player. Someone who would fit perfectly in the 4231 system. Can operate everywhere in one of the positions behind the forward. Comfortable going on the outside and inside of players.

    Has apparently played behind the forward in the attacking midfield position for PSV this season, but last season spent most of his times on the wing, producing 14 goals and 12 assists. Along with that, he also averaged 2 key passes per game.

    This season, he already has 7 assists in 9 apps, with an avg of 3 key passes per game. So in terms of creativity - something we're really crying out for, this guy certainly fits the ball and someone i'd have liked to see us to a gamble on, especially for 25m that was apparently being touted for him.

    I have been mentioning him for months. He could easily slot at both RW and LW giving us options. You need 40m though at this point

    He is a LW who can play on the right mate. We need a specialist RW. Chiesa would be nice.

    Okay but he's still very good on the right, better than anything we have and better than most "specialist right wingers". Haven't watched Chiesa play so don't know about him. Still hope we can get Sancho but if that's impossible I would like us to go for someone like Bergwijn or maybe Chiesa if he's as good as you say.

    I even think in this day and age, 40m is nothing for someone who put up the type of numbers he did last season.

    So do I mate. We've needed a RW since Fergie left and possibly before.
