    But would a £25m transfer fee if he had two years on his deal sound reasonable?

    I definitely agree. But if they fix other issues he himself may fix others.

    Worth noting that for us he was at his best with Son and Alli in the team, plenty of other players making runs in behind, runs into the box. Although both Eriksen and Fernandes are great players I think there's the risk of them being too static if on the pitch at the same time. Though that will again depend on which other players are there around them.

    There are a lot of ways to improve a football team by putting Eriksen into it. I think he will be good for them, but more so if they find a way to get some stuff balanced.

    Probably yeah, 3 year contract at 200k a week plus £25m in fees is nearly £60m in a 3 year period, I can see why we left the table, curious what Brentford's offer was tbh.

    when you put it like that, glad that we didn’t take him on. I think he looked great in a bang averages team in Brentford last season. Can’t see how he would have fit in our team with conte.

    He will get some assists though in that United team. Think that he improves them slightly but not enough to be concerned.

    A midfield combination of Fred, Mctomminay, van der beek, eriksen, de jong would worry me if that was our set up.

    Very interested in what Ten Haag does with Van Der Beek - clearly a good footballer, not sure he's ever gonna do the business over here but this is his chance now.

    Very good player for sure.

    Not sure he's ever played wide? Not sure he'd be a natural fit in one of the deep midfield roles in our 3-4-3. Not sure he'd be a good fit.

    Edit: And would be fairly expensive.

    Okay, so I didn't word that so well. I didn't mean that Eriksen alone would fix it, but rather than he'd be an important part of the puzzle. While he's never been a tough tackler, he reads the game well enough to make a lot of interceptions, keeps the team's shape, and of course his work rate is beyond any doubt. He will be the glue that holds a 3-man midfield together, all while being able to play a lethal pass. Add ONE of Fred and McTominay (rather than both), and/or Fernandes, VdB or even de Jong, and suddenly it's looking workable.

    Strange call. Average player and fails the first screening of the ‘no dingdongheads’ policy. Go for Brennan Johnson if we want a HG trequartista (which I don’t think Conte particularly wants anyway).

    Would have liked to see him in Spurs again, but not gonna cry over it. Think the three year deal and the crazy wage that United offers just shows how desperate they are.

    12 goals, 8 assists in the league for a brick Leicester side, 15/11 overall, hard working, creative, goal scorer, home grown, can play a few positions, press resistant set piece specialist(?) - average he aint, would be a top signing

    11 games off the right last season (FWR AMR MR) according to WS with 9 goal involvements (4/6) . Would be expensive but if our rumoured budget is correct and after Spence & Leneglet we want a CB & an AM sort then i think his price wouldn't be prohibitive

    I’m not sure he okayed wide right when I saw them
    He played more like an inside forward with overlapping wing backs, Kinda Kulu style
    He is a very good player but if I was raiding Leicester it would Harvey Barnes I’d go for

    Agree on Barnes I think he’s a brilliant player.

    I hope we keep an eye on Brooks after coming back as well.

    numbers seem good but he is streaky and I’m sure many of those stats will show in games where he has played well vs playing well most of the time.

    not sure if he would come to warm the bench as he wouldn’t get into the side ahead of the player we just shelled 60m for, let alone starting in midfield ahead of the two pivots in midfield that conte usually plays.

    Well the rumours are that we want a CM/CAM along with a CB signing once we get Spence & Lenglet signed - asides from Kane we don't have anyone who can play CAM, so if Conte wants a playsr for that role there isn't any specialised competition currently in the squad, he would also cover the right side of midfield/attacking midfield. He impressed me greatly last season and i say that despite always thinking he's a massive bell-end

    Ah, cheers. Hadn't seen that.

    If the cost was acceptable I definitely wouldn't be against signing him. I would guess he would cost more than some other, non HG options, but if we want/need a HG player, of course there's also the benefits of having PL experience.
