Excuse my ignorance but has the Ed put together a January transfer target post yet?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

Might you have time this month Ed? Would be a great read.

{Ed002's Note - I will try Fresh!.}

Hugely appreciated as always.

One of my friend close to a football agent said we will push really hard for Declan Rice in the January window.

Hope Ed002 puts a sharkapod to genuinely know who our list of targets are and which amongst them will be practically possible.

Really feel that would be a dumb move and another overpriced purchase.

Kalvin Phillips represents better value and has more about him.

Rice is a cb playing in cm. I don't see him pulling up trees at West ham.

Rice is an excellent young player, from a defensive view point he reads the game really well, and as an ex-defender his tackling, and timing of when to tackle is top notch. While he is also strong in the air and hard to knock off the ball and mobile. As a physical presence he can dominate the area in front of the CB's and offers a great shield in front of the back four.

However, as a side aspiring to reach back to the top level of world football is Declan Rice the sort of midfielder a top side will need every week?

Sure when up against another top side who'll have a fair bit of possession and who will look to get at your defence as often as possible he is a great player to have.

But against 90% of sides who will look to sit back and try and hit you on the counter, how useful is Rice?

On the ball he is good at recycling the ball but he doesn't offer much in the way of creative forward passing, he isn't the guy to set the tempo.

The type of player Declan Rice is, means he is the type of player we will only need 10-15 times a season. You don't spend 80m on a player like that.

While Kalvin Phillips isn't as good as a defensive shield in front of the back four (he's still pretty good), he offers much more to the team when in possession. Which when you consider he will likely cost half of what Rice would. He makes much more sense as a signing.

As a midfield player rice has nothing on McTominay. I agree that he’s a Centre Half.
