I'd be happy with Martial. Young chap, plays like a swiss army knife up front and in last 4 ganes hes scored 3 with 3 assists.

Problem being he's not really a AMR, he hasn't really played there. On the left we got the undroppable Hazard and strikers Morata, Džeko (fingers crossed). We can't guarantee him regular game time and playing him on the right side might not be that effective because he can't cut inside. We would have to buy him for a big price = he needs to be a starter, don't think that's gonna happen. Arsenal would be perfect for him - Lacazette (Auba), Martial, Özil, Miki front-line would be very good on paper.

I agree. That's why Mahrez would be awesome option. But don't know where it would leave Barkley... On the bench? :D

Mahrez or a new AMR in general is irrelevant to Barkley. Ross is a CM/CAM first and foremost, hopefully he will be used this way, needs to displace Bakayoko ASAP.

It's not irrelevant at all. Barkley and Mahrez would most probably take "same" position in today's squad.

If we play with Barkley, it's most probably in 3-5-2, with him as a most advanced midfielder, Hazard and Morata upfront. No place for Mahrez.

If we play 3-4-3, Hazard - Morata - Mahrez, the only way Barkley could play is in 2-man midfield. And I can't see it happening.

One thing is what we hope for (Barkley to kick ass in 2-man mid), the other thing is what Barkley probably actually is (baller with no real tactical discipline and stamina). We'll see, but I'm not overly optimistic.

I dont know why not tho.

He has the creativity, he was always a fit guy running about and up on his defence work. I know I'd love to try him and Kante together

You are right. Guess I'm hoping that after watching his interview, where he said he wanted to become a world class midfielder and also said he saw himself as a box-to-box MF, that he can progress enough to play that role in a 2 man midfield. Having a technical baller who can run around and pass, defend and score would do us a world of good.
