Chelsea Legend 11

So apparently Chelsea are looking at this guy who had a breakthrough season at Augsburg. Looks pretty decent but I don't know much about him, any avid Bundesliga fans out there?

He had a great season and is only 20. He's a two-footed LB from Ghana and played 31 games for Augsburg.

3.5 tackles per game

2.7 interceptions

2.8 clearances

4 assists

1.4 dribbles

68% pass completion

On paper he looks like a Jose type player. He's fast and looks like he wins a high percentage of tackles (54%) The types of player that would compliment our high press quite nicely. Anyone know anything about him?

£20m he's twenty. Does he have the sort of potential that will see his value increase in a few years?

Of course he has, hes 20 after all...

20m is a lot for a fullback, its rare you see a return on that sort of money.

You mean 20 million euros ? Augsburg would sell for less I think.

I'm hearing its £20m.

£20m is over 28m€. Real Madrid paid 31m€ for Danilo, established and recognised full-back. By the way, pound to euro rate is really strong now and it's important to keep currency right.

Few weeks ago I read that Chelsea want to offer 15m€ for him. And to be fair I don't think that number to go further maybe a few good add-ons to that.

I don't know much about him to comment, judging from his numbers and youtube vid he looks like a Jose type player. If you can get the guy who provides exactly what we need the price shouldn't matter to a club like Chelsea. We can sell Luis and Moses and the fee will be covered.

I have never seen him play but it's better if someone like him take Filipe place and Brazilian will help bring Griezmann/Koke here.

From youtube videos he looks quick with great stamina, two-footed, nice combination play, strong in tackles and stats suggest that he is good in the air as well. The basic is right so for good money to play firstly a second fiddle to Azpilicueta and Ivanovic, this transfer seems reasonable.

Augsburg will not even get 10m for him. That's just how Bundesliga teams roll in terms of selling.

20mil pounds for a 2nd choice 20 year old LB. no thank you. ake would be a better option for the scenario. would rather use the money for a world class winger/CM.
