Bertrand Traore

Recommended Posts

Rather stick with DCL. If he was elsewhere you'd be talking £30m+. Him and Davies are standouts at their age. I'd even add Holgate. We've got three really good players on our hands and don't seem to appreciate them. Looking at Sancho for Dortmund who's meant to be the dogs bollockse and I don't see it, I'd pick all our lads over him. 

Look at the player not the reputation.

Liked him at Chelsea. Liked him at Ajax. Liked what I saw of him in the Europa in 17/18 at Lyon. Hasn’t got much of a reputation and probably won’t command a huge fee in today’s market - £20m mark is my guess.

Have you seen much of Sancho play? 12 goals and 14 assists this season. And far and away was Dortmund's best player. I would not put any of those three you mentioned in the same tier as Sancho. And that's coming from someone who rates DCL and Davies highly.

German football bores me so not every match. Just the ones I've had a flutter on and you can then watch for 'free'. Didn't stand out to me as their best player, and looks out of his depth for England. 

Lookman's stats were brilliant over there. It's a much easier league.

DCL on the wing?

Upfront. 

Assume we won't be in the market for another inverted winger with the comments from Silva about wanting a left footed player.

But the article is saying Traore as a winger :huh:

A very good signing if true, it means we have a genuine left footed player who can provide competition and cover for Bernard, and switch to playing on the right or up top. He also has experience of playing in the premier league, which is a bonus.

Left footed winger who can play off either wing or through the middle. Surely it’d be a good thing that Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin and Traore could all be versatile and interchange...

He doesn't really play right wing so most likely be a striker or inverted right winger for us assuming we'd not gambling changing his game to play him on the left. 

He's no better than what we've got and the money would be better spent on another position.

Let’s not worry about stuff like this and leave it to the people who make these decisions - we can have a good moan and a ‘I told you so’ if they’re wrong or pretend we called it all along if they’re right.

Move Bernard into the middle maybe? I really don’t want to break up his partnership with Digne though.

More likely have Traore on the right as I’ve read somewhere that we want a left footed player who can cut in so that may mean Richarlison playing more centrally. I agree, Bernard and Digne is something that should be built on.

Already have back up and competition,  Richarlison is a left winger but Bernard should be left where he is.

We have competition in the wing positions but Bernard, Richarlison, Walcott, Lookman and Onyekuru are all right footed - Vlasic, Mirallas and Bolasie are too (I think). We need to get rid of whoever is surplus and bring in at least one left footed option - it’ll make us much better in my opinion. Overlapping full backs and wingers who can cut inside and shoot (on both flanks) will make us very dangerous.

Ok, but he’s predominantly a winger. Anyway, C summed it up well 

He was a striker at his last club. Total stats show he's predominantly a right winger now but Lyon use him now and again up top. (RW:51, ST:18, LW:0)

Career total is; RW: 102, ST: 68, LW: 7. So I'm hoping he's not brought in to be used on the left wing.

Just means he’s versatile. I’d still rather DCL start, as you said, but I think he’ll be a winger if he signs for us
