    He's small deep-lying 8, like Verratti. I don't think we need him, Gundogan occupies that role. Seri is a quality player, thought about him last summer when the lack of good 8's in the team was discussed. But City have bought Bernardo since then.

    Yeah we're fairly stocked there, it's basically where Silva plays these days as well. Doesn't fit the profile at all never mind for a January deal.

    Yes, stocked, but I'd still buy De Jong, he's so good :)

    Hahaha I've heard good things alright, haven't seen him play outside highlights videos though. Wouldn't he be a better fit profile wise anyway due to his age and ability to play centre half and pivot?

    Not sure that he'll ever play as a pivot/CB in a stronger league, Eredivisie is a joke these days. But he's definitely going to be outrageously good as 8. On the other hand, there's Bernardo and Gundogan, Foden needs gametime as well... Silva has signed a new contract. Someone would have to go, can't see it personally.

    Ofc there's always a possibility of him becoming a 'new Sammer' and making us rethink the pivot/CB position itself. But the coach has to decide that he need exactly this type of player.

    I think they might overlook his height if they thought they could turn him into a dirty, diving ****.

    Del Boy, Rodders and Uncle Albert seem to agree, they’re even doing a Mexican wave for him.
