Player Valuation: £70m
Not long ago linked with big move to Man United. He had some injuries, some changes in manager and some poor form and he lost his way.
He is still young, he's available for cheap. This is exactly the kind of shrewd, low risk signing the club should be making. If the change of setting does not recharge him, we sell him and would likely get most of our money back.
It represents much less risk than paying £40-£50m for Matheus Nunes who we were linked with. Nunes would be more exciting but has a higher chance of going far wrong. In the clubs financial situation, it can not take these risks I think.
