Shouldn't be forced into handing out a new deal at this stage. Look at things again next summer if he shows signs of deserving a payrise.
Great. Now we are the team that players on 5 years contracts can bully us into better contracts.
Yeah, don't even think about a new deal yet.
A new deal was always the likely outcome - probably the reason why this story became so prevalent.
This isnt a bad thing if they see enough to feel his going to be a big part of the squad long term.
You give Guendouzi 70k after 10 good games raises the bar for everyone else.
Both deals probably 6 months / a year early but easy 'wins' for dumb & dumber to report up to the bosses.
We aren't talking about a Santi Cazorla, Marco Verratti or N'golo Kante here. It's Lucas Torreira. Simply a good destroyer. He's not special.
You are only as good as your weaknesses at the top, top level.
Torreira does not have the touch and ambidexterity of Cazorla, nor does he have pace or strength.
He's fantastic at intercepting and getting a tackle in, and he's decent at passing. His touch is not fantastic by any means.
Easily upgradeable player but I do like him. Performance vs Sp**s was magical but then he fell of a cliff.
no idea why you comparing Santi to Torreira but ok
Quite shocked that there is even one person against the idea of extending his contract. You'd have to think he's a total lost cause and not up to our standard, to be against it. He's young, very talented and has shown very high level in his first year here. These are the sort of players you tie down. If he has a great season next term, the worst case scenario is he puts another £20m on his asking price. If anyone's going to be given an extension on improved terms, this guy is at the front of the queue.
Guendouzi hasn't signed a new deal yet, in fact other than the Sun no one has reported on this.
Because Santi is a midget too.
Easily? Who, how much would it cost and would they come here?
Maybe I'm just naive and it is just the nature of modern players/football - but if after your first season, where you had a handful of good games but couldn't really be called influential, you encourage speculation about moving to another club, then I don't want you as part of our setup going forward.
As others have said, eminently replaceable, and could easily struggle next season anyway as more teams exploit his weaknesses - and now I just don't trust him to give us 100% when the going gets tough.
Eminently replaceable? As I've asked before: who, how much will it cost and will they want to come here?
Ndidi at Leicester. Comfortably better.
Don’t see why you hand out a new contract after an average season. He’s got 4 years to run on it, let him earn a new deal.
Lucas saying all the right things, sweet nothings
