ets be honest our midfield is pitiable. easily the worst for a team that's supposed to be challenging for the cl. remember when we had players like ballack , essien , makelele , deco , lampard , belletti ect - those were the days.
who would you buy to help us rise to the top again?
here are some i like
ignacio camacho - malaga - age 22 - arguably the best dm in spain , a big reason why malaga got through to ucl last 16 and sit in 4th place in la liga.
fernandinho - shaktar - age 27 - as we saw when we played them one of the , best mids in europe , like ramires but much better passing.
mario suarez - atletico m - age 26 - wins everything in midfield and uses the ball well
lars bender - leverkusen - age 23 - my first choice , heir to ballack and swein
victor wanyama - celtic - age 21 - impressive vs barca and celtic in cl. linked to manu
axel witsel - zenit - age 24 - one of the most complete midfielders for me - would be expensive and hard to get.
paulinho - corinthians - age 24 - one of our targets , very tough and dynamic
etienne capoue - toulouse - age 24 - very strong , shields the defense very well
fernando - porto - age 25 - probably the best slide tackler out there , flies into bonecrunching tackles and dominates the middle of the park
alex song - barcelona - age 25 - hardly used by barca , breaks up play and starts counter attacks
fellaini - everton - age 25 - beast for everton this year, has talked up chelsea but he is playing as second striker this year...
diame - west ham - age 25 - very cheap like £2.5m , probably not as good as the others , no reason why we shouldnt have got him in January to help us out.
blaise matuidi - PSG - aged 25 - described recently as the best french player . would be great but cant see psg selling any time soon
sami khedira - madrid - works tirelessly , could follow mourinho if he came
personally i would get song and lars bender , what would you do?
chalobah deserves consideration as he is a beast for watford
