  1. Those rumours also suggested Juventus were keeping tabs on Lanzini incase Dybala heads to Barca. On the subject of Juventus players coming to the prem Peyrera who went to Watford not sure what happened to him but if he is fit wouldn’t be averse to us making a bid for him, looks like Everton will get Sigurdsson but he could fill a similar position for us.

    • I think Ryad Boudebouz is our best option to help out Lanzini and add creativity. I like Lemina. But we wanted Gylfi and Ryad is same age 27 and will cost £40m less £10m should do it and he wants the move. He is like Gylfi but niy as good on dead ball but better at open play goals and created more chances than any other player in Europe . With 117 the likes of Payet 113 and Eriksen Ozil KDB where behind him. And over 70 over chances hit tgt with Chicharito being fox in box he needs service and Lanzini had 2 assists last season. He has and will do mte with Help and he is #10 also but RW main too so they opposite sides would work great togethter and can cover CM and CF.
      Think for the price more of a risk not to get and then want in January or next summer and will cost 3x as much.
