    Think he has been out injured a bit
    Don’t think I’ve seen him play yet when I’ve watched them

    I think Camavinga would be a great replacement for Sissoko eventually. Also confirming from FM scouting :)

    Camavinga is represented by Jonathan Barnett now

    Will be interesting to see what fee he goes for in the end.

    He had a fall out with his manager over the summer about his training/attitude, he has only a handful of games since and is now out injured.

    Wonder if Levy will try and stretch as much as he can within the boundaries he rightly sets, to help Mourinho get as close to the line as possible.

    You have to think we are inching ever close to something at last.

    The Athletic had this to say on Szoboszlai today

    Historically I’ve always felt levy is more inclined to spend when we look vulnerable as opposed to when things are going well, but I’m hoping he’s learned that if you don’t strengthen even when you are performing well things can go stale / backward very quickly. I think Mourinho made some comments to the effect regarding Liverpool too.

    This lad is class
    I’ve watched him since the middle of last season if I could (so not easy) and only to see how Salzburg play a so was planning a trip out there
    He is a proper player
    Eriksen with deceptive pace and swagger
    He plays like Ginola actually just more central and strikes the ball so well
    Whoever he goes too have a potential world class player on their hands for very little money

    Harry Brooks thinks that he could be good played deeper, as a Sissoko with technique.

    Not IMO
    He is a tip of the midfield triangle
    If we could get tanguy or lo Celso taking over from Sissoko at some point, he could shine in that more advanced midfield position. He would need to work on his defensive side

    I had the conversation with HB about him 9 months ago ish on Twitter and he didn’t know much about him at the time

    Obviously that's where he's playing very effectively now. HB thinks that he has the strength and energy to be effective deeper. He thinks that Lo Celso is too direct to play there long term, his first instinct is to get forward. Ndombele isn't well suited to doing the donkey work that Sissoko does or at least it would be a waste of his talents.

    I agree that tanguy isn’t suited to it but he could play there in a Different way like Dembele used too
    Szobszlai has the energy I agree, and strength but not the discipline

    If we had Szobszlai on board, no way I'd want to see him being a DM. Far too much natural attacking talent. He's criticized for not being a better defensive player. You can teach other players how to defend. You can't teach them the Gord-given gifts this guy has.

    My thoughts on January window

    - Levy will be opportunistic (from all reports Bergwijn & Reguilon were opportunistic buys, we liked/followed both but were not actively targeting, availability/price, we moved and did the deal)
    - I think if Jose tell Levy if he really needs/wants someone, if so and within reason, we will likely try

    The success of recent buys will probably make the club bolder as well#
    - PEH & Reguilon are buys of season type
    - Vinicius with limited data is looking like the best 2nd striker option we have had in years
    - Bale is fudging Gareth Bale and the lift alone he brought to group is worth it
    - Only Doherty worries me a little and his price tag is probably justified by the fire he lit under Aurier's ass (guy is looking like a 50M defender now)

    From previous seasons there have not been that many top players who have moved in the Jan window so i do not think we need to buy just for buying's sake. We have a massive squad and several of those players have not really played that much so i do not think we have to rush in and buy anyone.

    I would rather wait to the end of the season and will then probably have a much bigger pool of players to choose from. But it does not matter what i or any other fan thinks it will depend on what Jose wants to do.

    Yes I think but it depends also on what we get from selling players too.
