He's not sitting on the bench if we're paying that sort of money for him. Fingers crossed it's Mina that gets the bench and rotation role, and then even less than that once Holgate is back.

If we buy zouma then we have 2 pacey centre halves and 2 aerial specialists. Who aren't so quick.

Holgate is a defensive option to see see out games instead of Davies, so if holgate started or was on bench I would bring him into midfield to see out games.... The last 10 minutes with iwobi and Davies the other day was not good.

Exactly this. It gives us options and depth.

Holgate is also an emergency RB. Very versatile despite being so young

I like your thinking on this👍

I do think Zouma is probably one of the most underrated defenders in the league. There is no getting away from the fact he does have a moment, normally with the ball at his feet, but he has all the physical attributes you would want in a defender and he has the intelligence to read the game as well. I think the new much more composed Keane alongside Zouma will be a great pairing. In fairness they did well together under Silva, certainly better than the other options we tried at the time.
