    Zarzana first broke onto the stage as a 12 year-old in the 2014 La Liga Promises Tournament with an amazing roulette goal that saw him compared to none other than Zinedine Zidane. Over time, Zarzana has improved and evolved his game to become more versatile and is one of the pearls of the Sevilla academy. In May of 2018, a 16 year-old Zarzana made his professional and senior debut with Sevilla’s B team (Sevilla Atlético) in the Second division and he nearly scored despite only playing around 5 minutes. Zarzana has become a regular with the Spain U-17 and U-16 levels as well as with the regional Andalusian U-19 and U-17 national teams. However, it is still to be seen where Zarzana is most comfortable playing as his versatility means he has been played on both wings as well as at the central attacking midfield role. Regardless, the future is bright for the 16 year-old and he has already been linked with massive European clubs such as Real Madrid and Liverpool.

    Young attacker? That's the very last thing that this squad needs.

    We could potentially do with a RW prospect behind Pepe if we assume Nelson and Saka are the prospects on the left. Though we do have quite a few prospects on the wings indeed.

    Nonetheless, one should always pick up outside chances and let competition do the rest.

    With regards to his strongest position being AM, I do think we should move away from the 4-2-3-1 to a more flat 4-3-3. Means the creative midfielder should still have the mobility and defensive skills to track back and block passing lines etc. Think Aouar would fit that profile well.

    Reading the description, he sounds more like a Kevin DeBruyne kind of player (minus the size and physicality ) than Coutinho, tbh.

    Edu will be busy lol
    Need a rb, cb to partner saliba, two midfielders one who has to be a powerhouse but can still play obviously and another like grealish, maybe another winger and if auba goes a striker and that’s just for the starting 11

    Looks as though Auba and Özil could be out. Would love to spruce up our attack with a return for Wilf Zaha. Palace are safe from relegation, so maybe we could sweeten the deal by sending the Nelson or Saka on loan?

    Can only really see us bringing in a left back. If Özil goes we might bring in an attacking midfielder. I think we wait until the summer to address midfield and CB.

    Couple of midfielders, a right back & left back look bare minimum with the injuries & rumored outs.

    With Kolasinac out until some time in January a left back needs to be here on January 1st.

    King AMN can play LB, RB, CM, CDM, LW, and RW. I think we won't buy anyone. I still wonder why we sold Nacho. Stupid decision

    Yeah, can't be going with just AMN. A loan signing would make sense unless we've got a youth player ready to step up?

    Get Marcelo from real madrid on loan.

    Someone here was of the opinion of converting Kolasinac into a CM which could be brilliant if it works. Unless Arteta also believes the same, there's no way we are purchasing an LB and there wouldn't be a need for that IMO.
