Emerson is a right back, Bertrand is a left back.Anything longer then 2 years and more then £40k p/w we're having issues.
Club never learn, go for Emerson Royale, way younger, much higher ceiling.
Suppose it helps with his past chelsea connections, and he's a UCL winner! Experience for Edu and Arteta.
Him and Junior Firpo both can play both positions.
He’s 32 in August. On a free for one year it’s not the end of the world, but it’s just more mediocrity for us.I didn’t mind this signing in January, mainly because we were short on options in the market and only had Tierney. In the summer market you’ve got ****loads of options and shouldn’t be settling for signing a 31 year old on a free transfer.
think van Anholt in the same contract position as well... either would be solid back up
i'm just not sure with no european football any LB would accept being backup for already quality player in Tierney who is just 23 years and next season he won't be asked to play 3 games a week it'll maximum 1 game a week.
but these you mention all backup. New RB Gabriel Saliba Tierney are our first team players. if we had the man city or chelsea ability to transfer i would love have 8 elite players but we all know that won't happen.Cedric/Holding/Mari/Bertrand
Southampton had that 5 years ago with better CB’s.
