Saka, Martinelli are for sure staying…So here are the question marks:
- A. Lacazette, current captain, early 30s and out of contract in June…
2. E. Nketiah, an academy product, an English youth international and also out of country in June
3. N. Pepe, our most expensive purchase to date. Has been showing glimpses of his talent but not on a consistent basis. Is there more time for him at AFC or is it time to let him go flourish somewhere else?
4.F. Balogun, an academy product, currently on loan in Middlesborough. Apparently, an amazing talent.
5. R. Nelsson, an academy product, currently on loan abroad. Was touted to be a fantastic talent but has not lived up to the hype – or just yet?
6. M. Biereth, a recent purchase for the academy. Scoring regularly but does he have what it takes to make it to the pro group?
My take on it:
- Keep Laca, Pepe, Balogun
- Loan out Nelson, Biereth
- Let Nketiah go, for his own good.
- Purchase a Nr.9
Forward players for next year:
Recruit (Schick? Calvert-Lewin? Watkins?), Laca, Balogun
Saka, Pepe, Martinelli, Recruit (Kostic?)
What’s us your take on it?
