    He’s a good player, would take on a 1 year deal.

    Only issue is his age, 33 and coming to a more demanding league, you wonder if he’ll even make an impact or just struggle.

    While a "project youth" is exciting, and could work in FIFA or football manager 20, you also need some experience in the team. The idea of having mentors to young talent is worth contemplating. Even a team like Ajax have old geezers like Tadic.

    Though I agree with most of what you wrote, I think that for once AM fixation with age is a bit on point because of how dificult it might be to shift him.

    Only way you take him is on a Lichsteiner type 1+1 deal on a resonable wage.

    I assume that would be the plan. There's no reason to tie him down for 3+ years.

    Quite the negative reaction to this news due to his age, but it'd be a pretty good short-term squad depth move. It's a free transfer after all.

    Basically the left wing Lichtsteiner from the sounds of it.

    I'd take him on a year or 2 contract.

    Seems like everything we’re linked with this window is a Lichtsteiner, cheers Raul!

    We’re on our way to building a team that one day might challenge top 6.

    I know people will say its serie a but Mertens in last 2 season he scored 41 goals and had 24 assists in all competitions what's good about him that he isn't injury prone. He also can play everywhere upfront but his best season came as striker with sarri he ended up with 34 goals in all competitions.

    Much better player than Lichsteiner though. Still quite productive.

    What's his fitness like this season? With lich you could kinda see in his last season or two at juve that he was starting to slow down.

    A splendid player on his day, but due to him being the same size as @OnlyOne i can see him having a rough time here
