He`s great, but not sure if he can play on the wing
I am sure, he can't.
Ajax would just leave him on the bench and play the next young defender in line, they won't waste their time developing a player they don't own if there's an alternative that they do own.
I've never seen him play on the wing, but I don't see why he wouldn't be able to, as he's got the pace, dribbling and 1v1 ability to do it.
If you look at videos of his best bits, he often picks the ball up in positions we'd see Sterling or Sané in and a lot of his assists are from the same areas, cutbacks on the byline inside the box.
For example a few clips of him in wide areas -
Also i've just seen he played 46 games of his 103 at Stuttgart on the wing, so I'd say he can play there.
The problem with Werner as I see it is that he'd cost 70, 80m+ and you can't really spend that much, break your transfer record etc. on someone without starting them most games, but then you'd cause a lot of friction with Aguero or Jesus or Sané. If we're bringing in a proper galactico with a big reputation then maybe you get away with it, but a kid only a year or so ahead of Jesus, Sane and Sterling? I'm not sure. Maybe in a years time when Aguero leaves (Is that 2019 still or is it later now?)
There's literally nothing linking Fabinho to us. Great shame as he would be my dream followed by Weigl.
There was nothing linking us to Bernardo and we know how that one played out :)
According to transfermarkt he's played on the wing 3 times this season and despite losing those 3 games means he has and would be capable. Though he doesn't really dribble and is more of a Vardy type striker chasing balls over the top and down the channels rather than operating out there in build up play so not sure he'd be particularly effective in our system as a winger.
Edit - didn't see your edit when i replied. Videohighlight his Vardy likeness, needs space to run into
That's s rarity though mate
He's certainly nothing like the tricky wingers we are linked with, Zaha, Bailey etc. but I think he's got a bit a lot link up and guile than Vardy. He can beat a man 1v1, and his passing and ball control are very good.
DCM / CM Fred, Weigl, Thiago or Fabinho (Thiago please)
Winger Hazard, Bailey, Draxler or Mahrez (Hazard please)
Striker Kane, Werner, Mbappe or Lewandowski (id take either)
Get the money spent City.
