    A lot of talk today about us being in for him with a 60m Euro price being touted. Betis missed out on european football and will apparently need to sell off some players to stay in the black. Although he only signed permanently for them a month back, the option of selling for profit has always been rumoured and with Betis' position it may happen.

    Personally, I'd love to see it happen.

    We need 2 x central midfielders this summer.

    I've heard it all now. You'd sell our best player?

    I wouldn't. I was just wondering how people were expecting to incorporate two incoming senior CMs. Moving DIer back to CB to replace Alder might be the answer

    Yeah, I think Sissoko, Dier, Winks plus one is enough for two slots. Unless Dier goes full lard arse of course.

    I don’t think Dier will be at the club much longer. He was disappointing last/this season. He doesn’t count as part of the ‘home grown’ quota, and if any of the rumours are to be believed then we are actively searching for at least a couple of new central midfielders, players who would take Dier’s place in the team.

    I think he'll be here next season. This season was massively interrupted for him and we're already likely to add two to replcae Wanyama and Dembele. I can't see us signing a 3rd CM

    I'd see completely the opposite. No one has played more minutes for Poch over than past 5 seasons than him - he's basically played pretty much every minute he's been fit. I think he just had a tough season with illnesses and tiredness, and will likely come back strong and play 60 games next year.

    I hope you are right but for that to happen he will have to play a LOT better. He has been excellent for us in the past but that performance against Bournemouth was the extreme of his low season form

    I would think that Dier would be one of the last players we would want to sell.

    He wouldn't pass a medical in his recent record

    Very true but after a summer getting fit he will be a important player for us again.

    I sure hope so, because the last two seasons, he's been utter brick compared to the previous ones.

    Fair chance Winks will get injured (he has for 3 seasons running now) and miss a few months, Dier will end up at RB and CB as cover for the odd game so assuming Wanyana goes we definitely need 2 more in. 1 could be someone who needs a bit of development and maybe plays 20-25 games in season 1 with a view to stepping up in season 2 but I think we should be going out to get first 18 quality players this summer. We've looked very light in midfield all season and the balance just hasn't been there which has meant we've suffered bring back Alli or Eriksen to cover when they don't play as well there and we also haven't covered the CB's well enough and ship a lot of goals.

    looks like he loves a hollywood pass but we need to see stats to understand the full picture
