He defo fits the age profile hercs mentioned, however i assume clubs and owners k ow the game and want a bidding war , especially PL clubs, they milk the cow home good!!! ... would be funny if we did steal hi from arse, however may mean TA is defo going this summer which is sad.
Could be a factor but I imagine it'll largely come down to money and future prospects. We certainly look the more likely of the two clubs to offer CL football and given Jan's age and the Toby situation, he'll have a good chance of getting into the first team after a year on loan back at St Etienne (if we pull this off I imagine that will be the plan).
Saliba signed and loaned back with Toby seeing out his last year does make a lot of sense. I don’t see Roma having the clout to get him. Nothing wrong with having a world class centre half for another year whilst his replacement is wrapped up playing week in-week out ready to come in the following season.
