    Alex Ferguson clearly had a thing for converting wingers into FBs. But @milo I'm not advocated Moura becomes a right-back (though he could). My point was, if we're to play a lopsided team with Davies staying back and Aurier free to get forward, I'd prefer someone who can hurt the opposition in that role. Moura could easily carry that off. He'd need to settle in the position. But he'd be fine, and more potent going forward.

    Harry kane could do a job in midfield for us much like Rudd Gullit did ...

    While we are at it how about then playing alderweireld up front like the ginger pele ... both good in the air ...

    I'm liking this thread, very logical and rational .... the world has no viable RBs out there to purchase so it makes sense to convert players for different positions... Mourinho knows a thing or two about defending, perfect Vertonghen replacement

    I read somewhere we were looking At Lille's right back Zeki Celik, probably just an other pile of crap, but I played with a Turkish team years ago and most of their players were skilful and aggressive just a bit flakey.

    If I wanted a solid, reliable 7,5/10 type right back, I'd go for the Norwegian at Olympiacos, Omar Elabdallaoui. He's a leader too, and captain of the team. He's pretty good going forward too. Would probably cost 15-20m.

    I'm all for signing for players with leadership abilities. Might mean we dont buckle under pressure

    I may well have been, but my brain went into shutdown when I was reading Moura playing at full back, personally I would put him in goal.

    Is he another Aurier? Playing Rb in a team which doesnt need to defend in 90% of its games

    Personally, I'd sell Aurier and KWP, and sign Castagne and then go with him and FOyth next season

    However, given Foyth seems likely to go, either we need to bring in a CB and then use Tanganga as RB cover, or sign a second RB

    No I saw him take a successful throw in and run back after someone.

    I don't know if Foyth's stock has fallen that far. Aurier will be as you say, maybe we get someone to offer a bit more, but I don't think Foyth is so bad that he is only worth £10m.

    We signed Foyth for £8m. You can hardly say he’s got any better, and with Covid prices aren’t going to be at a premium. £10m is a fair price, that would be a profit on a guy who doesn’t feature regularly and when he does he has proven to be error prone....

    Foyth has become Argentina’s right back under us which in theory is progress
    Aurier hasn’t actually shown or delivered anything better
    Sounds daft as one has played and the other hasn’t but I’d expect a profit on Foyth and a moderate loss on Aurier

    People keep banging on about him playing RB for Argentina, what relevance is that for any club looking to buy him? Club football is completely different, and especially Premier League football which is faster than any other. I’m well aware you don’t like Aurier but he is far more proven, yes he’s made errors but has as many assists to his name. Facts are Foyth for all his potential, he has been here a good amount of time now and has made several errors already in his limited game time. He has two years left on his contract. If we get £10m that is profit on a guy who hasn’t progressed for us, and a decent chuck of money towards an area we need strengthening - what he is doing for Argentina is irrelevant.....

    There are plenty of people in charge of the purse strings at PL clubs who over pay for players, the idea of a young international right back being sold in the 10-15m price bracket isn't really that outlandish.

    Also buying a player from South America and buying a player from a Premier League club are different exchanges where the first deals value is not really much of a reference point/consideration

    It really isn’t
    First choice for a top country side commands a premium. Clubs look at that as they know things can happen at club level to the contrary. He is also young enough to get better
    Auriers level of proven is actually still very low. What prospective buyers will see is a player with arguably no more progression left in him and one who doesn’t really defend very well. Add in his off the field issues hence why his value will be less than we paid
    I’m not saying we will get more for Foyth Vs Aurier but we paid what £23m for Aurier so anything less is a loss, all be it after a number of years service
