    Depends how the team is set up, but he could well become more an attacking player, for example - like he did for England.

    Sitting out wide, picking passes, putting in crosses - in a slower paced more tactical league, I can see it suiting him.

    They are pretty amazing stats. Do the statsbomb wheels always have the same values on each of the axis? What happens if a player has (for instance) 5 pAdj tackles?

    I assume 'turnovers' is a bad thing? i.e. how many times he turns over the ball to the opposition? I also assume that this means being dispossessed himself and dosen't include the 26% of passes that fail to find a team mate?

    The scale is set so that the outer ring is the top 5% of players across Europe's top leagues. A player at or near the edge can be considered elite at that part of their game.

    That's right - turnovers are a measure of losses down to miscontrols or lost in dribbles. For me, if his passing is poor because of his teammates, then turnovers will follow. Fixing one by joining a better team will almost certainly fix the other.

    If he's just a brick passer who takes too many risks on the ball then we probably can't fix that.

    In case it isn't obvious, the opposite goes for the inner limit.

    I believe that top 5% and bottom 5% are roughly 2SD

    Ditto. That is interesting indeed (also interesting that the top 5% of players in europe for passing are only achieving 86% accuracy.... Surely that can't be right? 86% would be an average'ish type of number for that stat wouldn't it?

    This makes sense now. Glad someone asked, id never really studied these things as I guess I didn’t know the context and never got around to asking!

    Now I know that the outer ring is Moussa Sissoko, it’s easy to compare at a glance and see how massively inferior every other player on this planet is.

    If the outer ring is Sissoko then the inner ring must be my Nan.

    The fact that she died 4 years ago aged 103 is pretty limiting

    Could we wheel her out a week Saturday and see if she could do a job at right back?

    Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal are all interested in signing 27-year-old Colombia playmaker James Rodriguez, who is not expected to stay at Bayern Munich after his loan deal from Real Madrid ends this summer. (Mirror)


    Arsenal want to sign winger Ryan Fraser, 25, after the Europa League final, but Bournemouth want £30m for the Scotland international. (Independent)


    Tottenham have contacted Real Madrid in an attempt to start negotiations over midfielder Marco Asensio, 23, but have been told Spain international is not for sale. (AS - in Spanish)


    Manchester United remain interested in signing France's 24-year-old midfielder Adrien Rabiot, who is set to leave Paris St-Germain on a free transfer during the summer. (Manchester Evening News)


    Napoli are favourites to sign Tottenham right-back Kieran Trippier, 28, and the England international will be allowed to leave for the right offer. (Independent)


    Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers is considering a reunion with winger Patrick Roberts, who he managed during the 22-year-old's loan spell at Celtic. The Englishman is available for a cut-price £4m from Emirates Marketing Project. (Sun)
    Werent we linked to Roberts once upon a time?



    GREALISH WILL 'COST A LOT'

    Aston Villa manager Dean Smith has warned Jack Grealish will not be sold on the cheap this summer.

    "He’s signed a brand-new contract at the start of the season, committing himself to the football club," said Smith ahead of Villa's Championship play-off final against Derby on Monday.

    "He loves Aston Villa and he’ll want nothing more than to get promoted with Aston Villa. If we don’t go up he’ll cost someone a hell of a lot of money if they want to buy him. He is committed to Aston Villa and we’ve not even spoken about it otherwise."

    ANDERSON TO ANFIELD?

    Liverpool are considering a summer move for West Ham forward Felipe Anderson as the Premier League runners-up identify creative influences they could bring to Anfield, according to the Daily Mail.

    The Reds are believed to be in the market for another playmaker this summer and could look to poach the Brazilian off the Hammers a year after they signed him.


    MODRIC TO REMAIN IN MADRID

    Luka Modric is set to extend his contract at Real Madrid through to the summer of 2021, according to Marca.

    The Ballon d’Or winner is poised to follow in the footsteps of Toni Kroos and Nacho, who recently secured their futures at the Bernabeu.


    Leicester name their price for Maguire
    Leicester have told Emirates Marketing Project they’ll have to fork out £90million to sign Harry Maguire this summer.

    The Foxes centre-back is a wanted man after another impressive season, following up on his 2018 World Cup heroics with a consistent season in the Premier League.

    City boss Pep Guardiola has made signing a new centre-back his priority, and Maguire is at the top of his list.

    But The Sun have claimed that the England star has a £90m price tag, a fee that dwarfs the world record £75m paid by Liverpool for Virgil van Dijk.

    This is why it is important that we do go out and buy some young English talent from teams operating under financial constraints. English players who are anything like proven now cost huge fees. It is becoming increasingly important that the club have a punt on two 10 to 15 million quid type youngsters each season. You only really need one every two years to come good for that to have paid off handsomely and even those that don't quite make it to the very top can at least provide some reasonable home grown squad cover. Bournemouth have bought two good such players over the last couple of years in Brooks and Lloyd Kelly. Two players that I'm surprised we didn't have an interest in.

    Think the Grealish deal will depend on Villa coming up or not.

    I reckon there's a clause in his new contract that lets him leave for X amount if they don't make it .

    I think the problem with it (and I do agree with you) is also having the space for those players to play and develop, and thats the bit where we need to evolve more.

    In recent seasons the issue has probably been as much about having too much deadwood that we dont have space, but we also need to make opportunities in the team as well.

    If we got Maguire from Sheffield Utd, or maybe even Hull, theres every chance he wouldnt be the same player today...

    Liverpool join Tottenham, Arsenal in chase for £33m winger
    Date published: Friday 24th May 2019 1:04

    Liverpool have reportedly joined fellow Premier League sides Tottenham and Arsenal in the race to sign AC Milan winger Suso.

    The Spain international quit Anfield for the San Siro on a free transfer in 2015 and has gone on to enjoy a successful four-year period with the Italian giants.

    However, with Suso’s current release clause standing at £33m, it has left the door open to the possibility of a return to England during the summer transfer window.

    According to Tuttomercatoweb, the Reds are contemplating whether to hand Suso a second spell on Merseyside – where the 25-year-old managed just 21 appearances in all competitions between July 2010 and January 2015.

    Tottenham and Arsenal are also said to be monitoring the player’s situation, with Milan ready to listen to offers after the attacker notched just one goal and a single assist since November.

    The north London duo are both looking to strengthen their playmaking options this summer, with Spurs seeming increasingly likely to lose Christian Eriksen, while the Gunners are looking to replace Juventus bound Aaron Ramsey.

    Never got the impression Onomah rated Bruce much either. I think it's the last place he'll end up
