So you want to move forward playing without a DM?
Sorry but what's your point?

Winks is playing at the base of the diamond at the moment but imo he isn't really a DM. More of a DLP.

My previous post was suggesting Weigel is similar to Winks (imo).

My opinion and knowledge of Weigl was that he is a DM who has the ability to act as a DLP. I don't think Winks has the ability to influence enough on the defensive side to be the deepest midfielder. I think Winks has to have a dedicated DM next to him to do his dirty work.

Agree, but I just don't see a midfield two of Winks and Weigl being athletic enough.

The ball should always move faster than a player can run, IMO.

Athleticism should just be a plus. It's like Toby & Jan are way slower than Davinson but their much better in positioning and reading of the game.

Meant from a defensive side of things. In our system the midfield has to do a lot of tracking back.

According to Get French Football News (GFFN) on Twitter, Dortmund have decided to let Weigl leave this window for €25m with PSG edges closer for a deal.

F*ck. €25m for Weigl is a STEAL.


Edit: Here's a link to the tweet
Just looking at their twitter feed they have PSG as close to signing about 4 CMs. Gueye, De Jong, Weigl and Paredes.
