I don’t see why we wouldn’t be interested at £60m because he’s a proven performer in the league now, the right age, and we need to rebalance the squad with more HG players. We were willing to spend £55m on Ndombele who had to adjust to this league.We could've got him for £15-20mil, even if they get relegated he's going to cost £60mil + and i can't see us paying that.
The reasons we’re probably not gonna be in for him is that he’s really shining in that inside left role where we’ve got Son and Bergwijn who like to ply there. Even as an 8/10 we’ve got Lo Celso and Ndombele. Also the price will probably go up as the likes of United are desperate for young, HG creative players.
