    Yeah, he's much more physically imposing than JW. Would come out a bit cheaper as well. Very good alternative.

    But would he be a better pivot? Julian Weigl fits better that mould IMO.

    My only concern with Weigl replacing Fernandinho is that he isn't as aggressive and athletic.

    No one knows exactly since SMS has never played as a pivot :) But I think he has all qualities to succeed. The only worrying thing about him is low mobility, but pivot position in Pep's team doesn't require a lot of running anyway (think about Busi who's slow as snail).

    Lazio director of sport Igli Tare confirmed they received “very high offers for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic”.
    “We’ve received some very high offers for Milinkovic-Savic, but I believe he can do much better and will have a very high-profile career,” the director of sport told Mediaset Premium.
    “The offers were not from Juventus, but I want to underline that he said six months ago he’s very happy in Rome and with our ambitious project for the future.”

    Scored 2 against Nice tonight in a 3-1 win, looks a tidy player.

    I'll admit I haven't seen much of him, but does he seem to be more of an Ilkay type of player? A true CM or no. 8 rather than a pivot/DM? I know there's been plenty of talk about Gundogan taking Fernandinho's spot in the XI once he gets a run of games but would this SMS lad be a genuine pivot or someone that could play throughout the midfield 3?

    He would sit in the middle of midfield, like Fernandinho. A physical beast but technically very gifted, I think he would flourish under Pep. More Matic physicality than the athleticism of Fernandinho but he is no slouch.
