Iva gets a lot of critiscm but him and Bertrand have the exact same major weakness to there game.

Both let too many crosses into their box (it's how we got our goal at Stamford Bridge vs Saints) yet Ivan gets lambasted for it but no one brings it up about Ryan because it doesn't suit the "completely solid with no flaws" line people throw in his direction.

iva gets a lot of criticism because he does not just let crosses come in but also, he is poor to very poor in attack. normally, so narrow with iva being the only one providing us natural width. but 90% of those situations, he just lets it all go to rubbish, compare that to ryan, and how good he is in the opposition half.

So people are content with Alderweireld, a tissue soft Walcott, a past it Falcao and Sissoko? Dream big.

Well i think if all four of them will come nobody will feel content...

Im ok with Falcao and maybe even Alderweireld, but i think we need to aim higher than Sissoko and Walcott for CM and RW.

Not someone to combat any of the solid back four suspects for a place in the team.. apparently, we've opened talks with Atletico to swap him for Felipe Luis, so we're technically swapping a bench warmer for another bench warmer.

Sorry, don't want him. Whatever happened to chasing players like Varane and Hummels anyway??

Is our best option, if you think about it. ¿How much you gonna earn if you sell Filipe? ¿10m? He has 30 years and played practically nothing in the last season.

Do the trade and find a good and young LB like Gaya.

Miranda is far more interesting option. I wonder what Atletico will do now, he is 31 and with 1 year left on his contract. Chelsea can buy him cheap and go all out for Pogba :ph34r:

I dont think we need another 'Squad option' for CB or RB, bringing him makes sense only if Mourinho sees big potential in him to be a starting CB.

I dont know if he's good enough, tbh i dont really have a firm opinion about this player.

Alderweireld is not a full back at all. He is exactly like Vertonghen not better and not worse, he is a centreback that plays as a fullback for some games. I hope that we do not get him Zouma is waaaaaaay better and we have many more options for the fullback area. For example Jose Gaya, Rodriguez, Clyne etc.

Jetro Willems is a good option too.

Atletico fans are excited to be getting him back. They see it as there won't be a better defender on the bench in the league.

It's quite a sobering thought that Liverpool payed £20m for Lovren and Saints replaced him with this guy.

Could say the same for the other players they bought to replace Lambert, Lallana, Shaw etc.

Belgians underrate him heavily, just watch the forums of the fans that know him the best. The forums of Atlético and Southampton. Alderweireld is the best Belgian defender by far this season. Denayer also had a massive season, but needs to prove it at a higher level first. Toby has all the qualities to play rightback too and I think he is also great there.

I voted would make a good squad player. I`d be fine with the swap but as mentioned by someone else..would leave us with 0 true leftbacks.so we would need to buy a LB.

I`m really not bothered if we get him or give the depth spot to somebody like Kalas,Omeruo instead. infact if it involved a transfer fee instead of a swap I`d prefer we just used one of those. each can play RB too.
