If we are looking for a DM that can also add to attacks, that knows the premier league and has performed well in Europe to take some of the pressure off Matic how about Steven N'Zonzi?

We need to play a midfield 3 with Pogba on the left.

I would then make arsenal a good offer for Ozil to add some creativity.

How about offering arsenal miki in exchange for Ozil? Miki is a Wenger type player.

We need a back up LB and RB, but I don't see the quality we would want being available. I don't want rose. What is the point in having 2 injury prone lb's?

I don't see why we need ozil. Good player, but we have pogba for creativity once we have a third midfielder to unleash him, so ozil becomes unnecessary.

Far better to get a cm and a right forward imo.

I think you need balance down the right. If the cm sits you don’t want to be predictable, I. e, the opposition know you are always going to attack down the left through pogba. Also having two creative players means you have cover.

Well if ozil can be the third cm that works fine, but I can't see pogba and ozil being happy as being cover for each other.

Agree red ozil could not play that 3rd central midfielder. He could easily play from right or left of the front 3 in a 433.

04 Jan 2018 18:01:03
How about pogba left, Matic or N’Zonzi centre and Ozil right, with pogba and Ozil switching position.

They are also available as squad depth in case one is banned or injured. That is what I meant by cover.

04 Jan 2018 18:37:28
Ken, would ozil as a right forward not just be another square peg?

Don't get me wrong, I'd happily have him, but just not sure how he fits in.

We'd need to change formation to get him and pogba on the pitch together.

Not sure red d its where he has played the majority of his career.

04 Jan 2018 21:41:12
I thought he was central and predominantly a no 10.

04 Jan 2018 21:44:08
Quote from the man himself in October 2017:

Everyone knows my favourite position is the playmaker, the No.10, at the moment the coach plays me on the right and it’s a thing I need to accept and to show my quality in that position.

04 Jan 2018 22:49:11
N’zonzi is nowhere near The quality we need. We’ve bought enough tosh these last few years.

04 Jan 2018 23:32:10
I suggest you do some research Eric, N’Zonzi has been a revelation in Spain. His passing stats are up there, so much so that last season the only players with better passing stats in Europe were Verratti, Thiago Alcantara, Julian Weigl and David Alaba had better stats. Not bad company.

Aledgedly Barcelona, Juventus, arsenal and city were keen on him in the summer which lead to Sevilla increasing his buyout clause in a new contract.

I accept he may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I think he would be an upgrade on the wig who wants to jump ship. If not him who do you see as a viable solution in a José team?
