    If Gabriel signs I expect a push to sell him.

    Should theoretically be one of the first names on the outgoing list but does that mean Saka is our back-up LB in that scenario?

    Good wingback, average leftback, poor left centre back.

    Decent chance it's him or AMN out the door, I hope it's him. Shame though, he's one of the players in this squad who gives 110% every game and will stick up for his teammates.

    I can't think of a better back up full back in the PL.

    The problem is he's on a starter's wage while being a backup player

    So are Bellerin and Luiz but Kola provided more decent peformances this season than either.

    Don't have any problem with him as a backup.

    If he can get back to his 2018/19 form. I think he can be good for us. In fact at his best he’s better than Tierney. The problem is that he’s not very good at defending. He’s ok at it.

    Tierney will surpass him soon. He will have to leave eventually. We got him on a free which is why his wages are where they are.

    Has become the latest scapegoat for everything now that Mustafi & Xhaka have improved.

    above average player, decent backup but big wages means I want a sell.

    He is extremely poor on the ball. And a poor defender. He is not really suited for a high pressing team. His bulky body is more suited for a slower paced league/team.

    I'd happily split that duty across Maitland-Niles, Saka and Cédric. Gives game time to squad players that are actually up to it.

    He's poor defensively and looks so scared of making a mistake that he's now pretty useless going forward. For such a tough looking guy, he's missed a bit with injuries too. I'd sell in a heartbeat.

    I’d like to see him leave to be honest. And if we play him use him as wingback or left back if we expect to attack like crazy because he is a pretty awful defender. Think he is at his best banging down the sideline with the ball.

    You are aware that he’s been played as a centre back after coming back from the covid break, right? Before the break he was doing well at wingback. I recall him terrorising Man Utd down the wing. Not saying we should keep him but “useless going forward” is one big stretch.

    Lol there was a point this season where he was creating the most chances in the team (our only real consistent outlet and ball carrier under Emery).

    Hes ok going forward as a wingback, a liability defensively. Think @roz had it completely spot on with what he said about him above, average and on too much money. Just a bit of a scapegoat at the moment.

    I was aware and yes he has his moments when he pushes the opposition back but a lot of his crosses were to nobody in particular, hence the praise when KT actually got his head up and placed his crosses. He has been poor going forward and he's looked scared to death trying to pass forward and that's not good enough. He's not a scapegoat for me but I'm scared when he's defending and it seems a waste when he's attacking. No point keeping him to play in one system only. I really liked his first season and some games under Emery but not so much now.
