    He's an 8. People talk about him being a winger, but he isn't always going to influence the game by beating his man on the wing. He doesn't have the pace to do it. However he always finds a way to make something happen when inside. We need him as a right 8 with Aouar as the left 8.

    Now that would be devastating! I really wanna see Saka improve his touch and link up a bit though. It's something Iwobi was pretty good at. Imagine if Saka was as good as Iwobi with the ball in tight spaces and could link up like him too, while maintaining his amazing ability in the final third, he would be our most dangerous player.

    Is he not our most dangerous player already?

    And 19 years of age! He looks like most likely to break sides down and will just keep getting better and better

    Plays really well in that left half space. Think he has a great future as a LCM in a three...but we’re linked to Aouar so I dunno.

    Yeah, seems like fan/twitter driven links primarily.

    If we are to only sign one midfielder this summer, it surely has to be a Partey profile.

    I'm not convinced Aouar represents much of an upgrade on Saka in that position. When you think of how much he progressed in his breakout season, if he continues to improve like that this season he will have that position nailed down.

    Does Aouar match Saka's 12 assists in all comps while adapting to a new club, country and league? I wouldn't bank on it.

    Saka is legit quick mate, not sure what you're on about here. Luckily its not his only attribute.

    I see Aouar as more of a creative midfielder and Saka as a creative wide player, they can probably play well together in the same team so for me it doesn't matter anyway.

    Saka is already ahead of Iwobi mate, Iwobi was trash.

    Modern fullbacks aren't really defenders anyway, not sure it matters.

    Aouar looks like a proper prospect, I'd put a tenner on him doing it honestly. Regardless, breaking Özil's 3 assists or whatever from last season wouldn't be too hard. I could probably do it.

    It's a fair question. A lot of his assists came from out wide last season, but he showed again against West Ham that he can be a creative force tucked inside playing the two passes that led to the assists and if he gets a good run at it, he may similarly put up great numbers from LCM.

    I'm sure Aouar would be a great signing, and if they elect to sign him I'll trust Mikel's judgement.

    But if it becomes a choice between Aouar and Partey then for me, Partey must be the priority.
    We have nobody with his profile in the midfield but we may well have a better player in Saka ready to develop in that LCM position.

    The only thing that can stop this lad is injury or if we appoint Tony pulis as our manager.

    He'll be one of the best attackers in Europe in a 2 or 3 years.
