Guillem Balague claims that we’ve made contact with Lille over a potential Pepe transfer @15.40.
Respect to anyone who can watch 15 minutes of Ballague.
Great numbers at least.
To add some context, a whopping 5 of those 8 goals are pens.
His underlying stats still look pretty good though.
Think he has won 4 out of those 5 penalties himself. He looks really good from what I've seen of him, his dribbling is actually underrated because he has a weird style; similar to Dembele rather than someone like Mahrez/Zaha who constantly have the ball close to their feet, he can also turn really well in both directions which is something we lack.
We don't really need him to get the sort of number he is getting at Lille at the minute, 15-20 goals/assists in the league would be perfect, anything extra from any winger we sign is a bonus.
Phew, that makes a huge difference
I like him from the videos I've seen of him but we could do with more of an explosive and speedy direct player. He doesn't come across as someone good in the defensive phase of play and can drift in out of games as well but that can be worked on. He is technically interesting and pretty efficient in the final 3rd however. And we could really do with a left footed forward.
Tbh, I'd be happy with him and another speedy left winger like Lozano of PSV. We could get rid of Welbeck and Mkhitaryan to make space.
Another penalty merchant from Ligue 1?
To be honest, our scouting team has been superb since the Sven era kicked in, currently confident any player we get is proper solid to pure gold
Saw this and thought for a moment I'd wandered back into the old Lacazette thread.
That guy is *****ng good ! He provoked the majority of his penalties.
Don’t know if we’ll sign him but I think a wide forward is definitely on the cards for the winter window, especially with the Welbeck injury. We were probably going to address it in the summer but will bring it forward now.
Mislintat is pretty much 8/8 with his signings, so if we're interested here, I'm sure he's good.
Guillem Balague has become the Derek Acorah of the transfer market.
Another pointless post from budget GDeep?
Reminds me of Gervinho.
Seems very one-footed.
