Ed001, what's your opinion on the rumoured players, Telles / Tagliafico / gosens / chillwell and even alonso / emerson, seemed at left back there lots name mentioned, some a lot Cheaper than others.

{Ed001's Note - to be honest only Gosens looks worth pursuing. Tagliafico is far too rash, Chilwell has disappeared up his own backside and Telles is a bit weak for the Prem imo. You would be better sticking with what you have if you are going for any of those 3 I think.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Tagliafico is very good defensively I think with James being quite attacking having Tagliafico on the left will give us good balance. He’s also very good in the air for someone so small.

{Ed001's Note - good in the Dutch league, but struggles in Europe. I am not convinced he is really good enough to step up to the Prem myself.}

I think people don’t watch him enough to see he’ll be a very good player for us. He’s brave and got a lot of tenacity about him which will help him adjust. He’s also a big leader in the Ajax team something which we’re in need of.

Not a fan of Gosens he’s only good as a wing back and we’ve got one of them in Alonso. We need to find the right balance and that’s why I think Reece and Tagliafico will work well.

Weren't we also at some point linked to Cucurella? I don't really know much about him though, and it might just be me remembering incorrectly :)

Ed001, I’ve enjoyed your scouting insight over the years and recall a few gems especially Son who you called being a great fit well before he blew up at Spurs. If you had to identify a leftback that would be suitable to our present need, who would you pick?

{Ed001's Note - actually it would probably be Gosens. Quality left-backs are a rare breed at the moment!}

Gosens exclusively plays left wingback though, doesn't he, Ed? Atalanta use a 3 at the back system if I'm not mistaken.
You think he could make the transition to a more traditional fullback role?

{Ed001's Note - that is the worry, you are right. I do think he can but it would be a risk.}

I see him as a faster Alonso, which does sounds an enticing profile.

{Ed001's Note - that's a fair point. If Alonso had pace he would be so much better.}

Angelino for me looks a great player I know he's City, but I would take him over most.
