    was going to post something similar. There’s no doubt Traore offers more in attack, but played as a wing back we’d lose so much from Royal defensively. Royals extremely solid - for a 22 year old in a new league and country - he’s an impressive defender.

    I think Traore would be more likely to play ahead of the wing backs at least initially. Or come as a sub when needing to turn a game around.

    We will forever be in a state of rebuild if the bar for new signings is "they cannot do any worse" than those already here.

    Agree and disagree.

    Good options, someone that offers us something different (assuming something that Conte wants) is never a bad idea, particularly when we're short on options.

    That isn't enough in itself to really push us on to a higher level, but as part of the strategy, where other players either through immediate quality or potential that gets developed get to a really high level those options are very useful and can help.

    Assuming that what Traore brings is something Conte wants in his system and that his wages aren't massive.

    It comes down to whether Conte wants him and feels he can make him work in his system…bleedin’ obvious I know, but it is the only thing that matters.

    It goes without saying that the manager should be backed on who he wants to buy.

    However there's not much discussion to be had if we shut down any discussion on rumoured transfer targets because they might be the managers prefered target

    Cant believe Docherty has not been offered either. I thought Wolves were keen on having him back

    Find it really hard to believe that Sess is part of any offer. He's the one that suits the LWB role out of all our players.
    Even if Traore worked out and solved the RWB problem, we're just creating a new prob at LWB.

    Where has this talk of him being a RWB come from has he ever played there?

    if he comes he will be a right wing forward.

    Because of Moses I think. I.e if Conte managed to transform one crap winger into a mediocre wing back, perhaps he could do it again.

    An obsession with the idea that Conte changes failing wingers into WBs because he did it once with Victor Moses.

    Why would they want him back? He is crap, and besides, they replaced him with Semedo from Barca who is by far a superior player

    He also played Ashley Young as a WB at Inter and Ian Perisic too. Its far too flippant an answer to just link it to Moses

    Ashley Young had already been converted to fullback at United and was bought while playing that position. Perisic I was unaware of.
