    cynically you sign him, send him on loan and see if he turns out to be any good or make a profit on him. The Chelsea model.

    Exactly this. No risk signing. Send him straight to the championship.

    In fact, I'd say there is no risk. As Spencer points out, he's not ready to play in the Premier League, but he might with some seasoning on loan in the Championship. With the minimal fee involved in signing him, no big deal if he doesn't work out.

    It’s a weird one because you can see that he’s too good for league one but he’s going to be the same age as Dele Alli by next season so you wonder how high his ceiling really is. I don’t think a Championship loan is the best for him, try and send him to a Palace or Watford imo.

    If anything it makes me rate Bielik all the more as he’s younger than Aribo and has completely dominated League 1. Whether we sign Aribo or not he has to get game time next year.

    Kante was playing in Ligue 2 at same age if that adds any context.

    I don't think he would play for Watford or Palace. Definitely not Watford they are fairly well stocked in midfield even if they sell Doucoure with Capoue, Quina, Chalobah, Cleverly, Hughes and Wilmot all able to play in Gracia's 2.

    If we get him see if he’s ready for next season after training with us you never know how being with better players and fitness etc could improve him tons.
    That article claims he’s a forward when from what I’ve heard he’s more of a dacoure box 2 box mid

    I’m thinking whether Watford lose Doucoure basically. Same with Palace as I think Hodgson prefers aggressive central midfielders to playmakers like Max Meyer.

    My fear is we send him to the championship and still don’t really know what we have with him.

    But yeah he’s on a free so I guess it’s not that big a deal, just hope we give Bielik and Willock chances next year if we’re looking for young players.

    Quina should replace Doucoure, the games i saw him play he looked fantastic. Wouldn't be surprised if he's next seasons (under appreciated) break out player.

    Interesting, haven’t seen much of Watford this year tbh, I’ll keep an eye out for him.
