Switch home windows are fraught with false guarantees.
However for many of us – that isn’t the way it occurs. Is it?
We see names linked to our club and muse on whether or not they would match into our present system, who would make approach for them, what they might carry to our group. We daydream rather a lot about sure gamers holding our shirt and taking to The Emirates pitch.
Some gamers, we take into consideration a LOT greater than others.
And there was one player I’ve fixated on for a while. Checked out his development at his present club and turn out to be additional satisfied, by way of constructive bias most certainly, that they’re the important thing that can make Mikel Arteta’s group shift up a gear.
We all know that the star has refused to signal an extension to his present deal. We all know that he received’t be enamoured with no European participation subsequent season, after Leicester didn’t safe a excessive sufficient PL putting
And with only a yr on his deal, his price ticket would positively swimsuit our price range.
However the true cause Tielemans, I feel so anyway, could be the right match for our group, is what we lack.
We lack a pure pivot for Thomas Partey.
This weblog isn’t an assault on Granit Xhaka. The Swiss star has contributed to our development beneath Arteta – and has proven self-discipline in his positioning and defensive work. He has been pivotal.
However his limitations are holding us again.
With Xhaka subsequent to him, Partey can’t let go of the handbrake. Partey is a beast that may contribute at each ends of the pitch. His driving ahead with the ball mixed together with his energy is an asset that’s underutilised.
Tielemans provides that too. His carrying ahead in possession is easy. His passing, each brief and lengthy, are Arsenal-worthy. His athleticism permits him to trace again if Partey is caught ahead – and the Ghanaian can do the identical when Tielemans is in full flight.
They’re an ideal match.
And to sweeten the deal, Tielemans is only going to get higher in the proper circumstances.
For as little as £25-30m, we could possibly be including the glue that lastly meshes our group collectively. Simply think about – Partey and Tielemans within the engine room, serving to out in each an attacking and defensive sense. Our defence has already proven speedy enchancment and bringing in Saliba only makes us higher. In assault, ESR, Saka, Martinelli signify the brightest of presents and futures.
Large phrases, given the brilliance of Liverpool and City, however simply think about that 11?
Tielemans may be bought for a discount value. It could be an acquisition on the dimensions of Odegaard. An amazingly expert player, snapped up for a discount value and on the proper development curve.
In our colors and with the gamers surrounding him, Tielemans could be probably the greatest within the competitors.
I can see this summer season being infuriating…
