    Sensible if true. I’d rather wait for the right player rather then spending say 60m on someone who we are only buying as a reaction to not being first.

    So that’s a deal worth nil to Naples then? Who the fuck would want them two!

    He plays left side of a two, mate.

    He certainly isn't comfortable on the right, which is where we need to spend the money for a Kompany/Stones consideration.

    He is also 29, so anything over £50m would be short sighted in the extreme.

    Mahrez was the perfect example Leicester wanted £90+ in January but when we eventually secured him he only cost £89m.

    Have you seen any smoke signals on this Tolm or is it just fan hopes?

    Counter argument - He can actually play both sides, does play on the right relatively often, Maguire is also a right footed but left sided CB and Pep wanted him in the summer so presumably that isnt an issue.

    Also he's 28 - the same age Fernandinho was when we bought him.

    He's 28, and at the right price would be an outstanding investment.

    From Wiki Due to his versatility, he can play both in his usual role as a central defender, or as a full back on either the right or left flank, in both a three or four-man defence; he has even been deployed as a defensive midfielder.

    He is right footed, so dont see why he wouldnt be comfortable on the right? There isnt many top quality CBs out there, so if we get 3 top seasons out of him while we develop Garcia/THB or another promising CB it would totally be worth it.
