Reports of Bernard's agent in London currently in talks with Chelsea. No deal done with AC Milan. West Ham too in the mix. According to Matteo Pedrosi.

Not the type of player we need in the squad so fingers crossed he goes to Milan.
We need a player like Vecino to add a bit of muscle and defensive cover.
It should be Bakas role but I can't see him recovering his form in the short term unfortunately.

Vecino is most likely being viewed as a squad filler mate. Kante, Jorginho and Barkley or Fabregas in the middle 3. RLC on bench. I think Baka and drinkwater will be loaned or sold. Sad to see baka demise the way he has.

I am with you guys on this one- Vecino good. I just posted something from an Italian journalist.

If we play Cesc or Barkley watch the goals against tally rise rapidly .
Kante is a great player but he can't cover for both Jorghino and either Cesc or Barclay defensively.
Whereas Vecino is a genuine holding midfield player with a bit of bite to his play.

I've been impressed with Jorginho defensively, he seems to read the game well.

02 Aug 2018 17:57:06
Jorginho is a defensive midfielder as is Kante we would be playing with 3 defensive midfielders. we need a little more going forward than that.

02 Aug 2018 18:07:54
Jorginho is a defensive midfielder. Lol what you been viewing him as Turvey? Don't you see his always in front of defence.

02 Aug 2018 18:43:30
Blinky and CFCShak; I hope it won't become a problem that leads to imbalance? As both Kante and Jorginho are both defensive midfielders that play in front of the defense.

02 Aug 2018 19:30:33
Besides it looks like Real Madrid aren't willing to sell Modric to InterMilan and Vidal might be heading to Barcelona instead of InterMilan. Could these have any effect on Chelsea's move for Vecino?

Jorginho is not a defensive player. Just because he sits in front of the defence doesn't mean he's defensive. He's a regista, he sits in front of the defence to control the play. He's the player that's gets the ball from the defence and starts attacks. He helps with defence but it isn't his strong point and it's shown on occasion when the opposition has had space to run into when attacking. It's why Kante is needed in this system, he'll be a box to box player but will do a lot of the defensive work.

Jorginho is what’s known as a deep lying playmaker. Sets the tempo and starts moves, same as pjanic, kante will be the ball winner and isn’t as bad on the ball as some believe, but we need that 3rd to get goals or assists. I bet Cesc plays there if we don’t sign anyone,

Jorghino said he was a playmaker who defended when he had to, a big difference from being a defensive midfielder. We will leak goals with Fabregas in midfield as he has no defensive capabilities whatsoever and is even poor getting in the way. We need another and it could be Barkley but he gassed out really quickly against Arsenal.

03 Aug 2018 11:28:52
As some have said above Jorghino is a playmaker and not capable of tracking players defensively as could be seen in the games we have played so far.
If Kante is left on his own with Cesc, who is a very similar player to Jorghino, our back four will get exposed on a regular basis .
It will be entertaining for the neutral but we haven't got the firepower to outscore the top teams and quite possibly quite a few others.
We will encounter the same problems as last season with teams playing counter attack but with a more vulnerable defence.
And Jorghino will be targetted if he is perceived as the playmaker of the side.
It's going to be a tough season make no mistake with the major bonus being that a few kids will hopefully get enough games to progress sufficiently to secure a place in the starting eleven.

03 Aug 2018 13:34:10
I was referring to the fact if we buy a defensive midfielder to play with Jorginho and Kante we will have no goal scoring midfielders no lampard type player who will arrive in the box to score. Everyone was calling for us to be more atticking last season.
