I cannot comment on Baba Rahman because I've not watched der Bundesliga for more than 4 years (while missing my club's triumphs due to lack of television access here). But having watched some videos, he DOES have a great physique and --apparently-- good technique for tackling. Plenty of foot+leg to stick in there too.

Interesting prospect.

In fact, it's really hard for me to not like the look of him physically and his skills.

BREAKING NEWS: Liverpool and Dortmund have reached an agreement over the transfer of Reus. They've agreed it's never going to happen. [emoji23]

It reminds me the day when we signed Hector and Djilobodji on the same day.

What the fuck? After being one of the best midfielders in the Bundesliga this year, I honestly think he should have a say in his future. I'm pretty sure he would be happy either returning to Chelsea o

What are peoples opinion about Granit Xhaka? I know he isnt getting linked here, but he is in my opinion a prime talent whose shoes are too big for Gladbach. I scouted him a little during the season, and boy what a player he is. Very solid physically with being both tall and with a good build, but also a smart passer. I think he is the type of player who would thrive here, and is likely to get picked up by Bayern sooner rather than later.

I wish I could have watched Bunesliga on TV for the past few years. I would have improved my view of football as entertainment a little bit.

The players that have been on the Basel team have been good; I think they're underrated. Gladbach's manager is one of the more interesting people in management IMHO.

Explanation?

imo we should already line up him or Imbula.

How much do you think Kondogbia is worth at the moment? Could we get him for a reasonable fee?

I like Imbula but he's not chelsea quality. He could make it at liverpool,spurs but not here IMO.

Kondogbia is a real quality player, potential elite. I'd love him here. Monaco paid around 20m€ for him. They would want at least 30 but I think they would rather keep him than sell for that kind of fee.

It's being reported that Imbula could go for less than 20m euros. I don't know about Kondogbia, I would guess 30m or more.

How about Kondogbia passing ? I didn't notice that when I watched him though in not too many matches. I saw extensive highlights recently and from that I'm not impressed at all. I actually think that Imbula and Kondogbia are on similar level, good physique, good technique, left foot but something is wrong there and they are too unimaginative with their passing. Imbula sometimes shows a great promise especially with long balls but dunno about Kondogbia.

We need creative midfielder who is also good in defence with good pressing abilities and tackling. Someone who can win this ball and transit it quickly. I watched a potential candidates recently in Imbula, Kondogbia, Schneiderlin, Witsel and no one has knack to be creative. Usually safe, unimaginative passing. How they are supposed to create in Chelsea deadly counter-attacking machine against big sides ? Just for curiosity I wanted to see how it looks on Modric highlights and wtf, first 2 minutes and I already see exactly what I want to see.

The only option I see that we should splash the cash and get Koke.

If you're looking for creative midfielders you've been watching the wrong players. Schneiderlin is a n6 who can also play 8. Imbula and Kondogbia are box to box players. Imbula has a great left foot but Kondo is more powerful, better defensively and he plays really great balls forward after he takes it. I wouldn't even look at Imbula because we have a better player in Ramires IMO.

I don't think we lack creativity in the midfield. We already have Cesc and Matic is good when we are in possession, but both are too slow to play at high intensity especially in europe.

If we're betting on Colkett (and that's not a bad punt at all) Schweinsteiger would be a good temp option - his only weakness is that his pace is deteriorating.

Koke doesn't want to leave and with Cesc here in his prime it just doesn't make sense imo.

Why explaining poor passing ability by saying that he's box to box player ? I'm not looking for number 10 ffs but someone who can tackle, apply pressing, is physical and mainly can play quick, initial forward pass keeping flow of the attack. I see lots of similar disability in Imbula and Kondogbia, they play the pass that so often will interrupt transition by playing yard or 2 yards too backward. That's Ramires style. I want someone who can do this smoothly. Schneiderling sometimes looks like that player.

Cesc has shown for many years how awful he is against big sides, let him do his job by destroying small sides until January.

Sissoko is actually one of the few PL players playing for a mid-/bottom table team I'd love to have in our squad. He'd be absolutely fantastic in a midfield-3 with Matic and Fabregas and I'm rarely talking this excitedly about a player nowadays. Shame there won't be a transfer, though.

I agree with that assessment.

Nainggolan and Moutinho fit the mould perfectly and are realistic targets.

If Mourinho wants him, why not? seems an easy target.

I dont know how i rate him, playing for this awful Newcastle team and the managers he had, making it hard to know how good he is. He's better than Ramires, thats for sure.

I get what you mean, but i think Imbula' passing is very smooth, not sure about Kondogbia.

Moussa Sissoko: "Is Mourinho following my progress? According to what I am hearing, yes." (RMC)

Replace Rammy/Mikel with this guy. Preferably the former because Matic is our only real DM.
