    Just think for his age he's too expensive and might not even be that good.

    Jesus christ isn't Costa like 6ft 2 himself?

    Him and Saliba together at the back is actually very scary :lol:

    Still can't believe how massive he looks. Often it looks like that he plays with kids:lol: Lefty, so there is another plus. Fact, that forwards can't bully him 1 vs 1 using physicality. I'm tired to witness it year after year in our team. Probably lack of experience would be the main worry.

    Bellerin - Saliba - Zagadou - Tierney would be so un-Arsenal-like. Love it

    Toprak? I'm sure BVB would like to, but he doesn't want to leave.

    Or Zagadou? I think because the team won't carry 5 central defenders, it's very very likely one of Zag or Diallo will have to be sold.

    In fairness when I watched him for Dortmund against Sp**s he was absolutely horrific but he was also playing left back I believe.

    How do you rate Zagadou?

    I rate him quite highly, although if its a choice of him or Diallo leaving, I'd keep Diallo.

    But for a 20 year old, Zagadou is developing quite nicely. He played as a left back in his first season, which was quite the site, seeing a guy that tall and large up and down the wing! Last season he had a couple injuries which kept him out of the team for quite long spells. But when he was in, he also had to contend with having multiple different defensive partners. But when he played alongside Akanji he looked settled for the most part.

    Yes, he had a couple nightmare moments. But he's big and strong, good in the tackle, good in the air, can pass the ball, and has the hallmarks of developing into a good player.

    Does he lumber or his he fluid? Is he Mertesacker slow for a guy that size or does he have athleticism and actual pace?

    Reminds me of Chris Samba, once touted to become Arsenal's defensive wall back in the old AM days.

    He's quite fluid with the ball actually, and while not a sprinter, he is definitely not Meretsacker slow! When you see him running, he can look a bit ungainly at times, as with his long legs, he tends to look slower as he takes giant strides. But maybe that's more a youth thing too, and he'll become more 'elegant' as he matures. He's an athletic player, who is quite nimble, so he doesn't have a massive turning circle.

    I wouldn't say he is one to go striding up the pitch too often, but is quite comfortable in possession, but will play it more safe than certain central defenders we have (or have had).

    Not sure if this was meant as an insult or not.

    Had an absolutely nightmare in that game against Bayern. Looked horrible on the ball every time he was pressed. Djourou-esque. Reminded me of that Chambers game v Swansea when he was taken on a world tour by some winger I've not heard of since.
