I wonder why would you have that doubt? Jorginho would be like the Stevie of 13-14 except with more defensive awareness. He would be like the bow in the team, the launch pad for an attacking move. With his composure and vision, he would definitely bring more than whats on the table now.
On Keita, Leipzig are currently in 5th, 4 points behind Dortmund. Isnt the fee a wee bit different basis their CL qualification (or not)?
Yeah, Jorginho will be a huge upgrade in terms of controlling the midfield, but couple of things he lacks, pace and stamina (you certainly won't see him running around like Hendo/Wijnaldum), so he is vulnerable to the counter, and with us playing so high, I do wonder at times.
However, he is the master controller, and with us seeing more of the ball , I have no doubt he will create a hell of a lot. Another thing to note, Jorginho rarely pings a ball.
As for Keita, he has everything to be the perfect 6, but "unfortunately", he also has everything to be the perfect 8
, but like Jorginho, he rarely pings a ball.
The question is, what do you perfer in a #6 for our team? A pre-injury Lucas (with more creativity), or a Hendo (without the long balls but better distribution and tackling)? I am torn tbh, I don't know
