you know what, I've reached the stage that i just want a signing, even if he ends up being crap and a DM is still a DM, we badly need one.
Get your point Heimy and certainly we need a midfielder, watching those 3 against Watford screamed that loud and clear. To me though this lad doesn't look like a DM, he looks much more attack minded which is what we need. The only thing I noticed is most of his best work in those vids were done with a lot of space around him and he wont get that here. His touches don't seem quick enough to transition from control to shot/pass for the premier league.
I could easily be wrong, it's an assessment on a video which frankly could show nothing of what he's truly capable of. Perhaps he has fantastic close control and is dynamic then I'd be over the moon we bought him. I think I'm at the stage where I compare everyone to Keita and how bitterly disappointed I am we're not getting him. When you then compound that with losing Coutinho you go from
Well it's a hard pill to swallow right now. So yeah, any midfield signing would be good, especially a creative one (which I think this lad is more than a DM) but I'd love an Isco if we're selling Coutinho, not a lad that 'could' be good.
Edit: Just saw these two tweets also:https://twitter.com/LiamCorcoran28/status/897079878935347201
So that's him not going away to Stoke in January.

Again that doesn't look like a DM to me, slightly more encouraged on seeing that.
