Who in turn would be a really good signing for us.

I am not too sure about Lassana, mate. I think he is a good player but I have doubts over a Lassana-Lucas midfield. At least the likes of Khedira and M'villa are good on the ball/provide box-box role but Lassana is quite limited.

Who Diarra?

If so, you rate him higher than I do. Breaks up more of his own teams attacks than the oppositions and is completely useless once he picks up a booking.

Maybe in Spain, but I think he's far better version of Jay Spearing, and that seemed to work as a partnership. If Real are doing their usual and practically giving players away at a tiny price I'd love him.


Isn't M'Vila a bit too similar to Lucas in how he plays for them to work as a pair?

I'm quite favoured of the two holding midfielder partnership. Like Baraja and Albelda in Rafa's Valencia or our very own Lucas and Masch. Think they could be a great partnership in their current form

Not a big fan of diarras to be honest just don't think he tactically up to for example like mascherano to make up for his passing deficiencies. Lucas is a very good passer and should be allowed venture forward more for me, before he came to us he used to be known for the late darting run into the box like gerrard/lampard. You don't lose that imo and he still does well when he does venture forward on the odd occasion for us.

Plus theres nothing wrong with lucas type players in midfield.

If were to get any midfield from real madrid for me it should be granero. There's a very good player in there some where with granero, he's just wasted the last 3 or so years of his career warming the bench though.

Don't agree about Lucas-Mascherano midfield combo. Also, Baraja and Albelda were easily better on the ball than Lucas and Mascherano.

I like the idea of having two holding midfielders as long as both the midfielders are good on the ball and can create/provide box-box role.

I think that's a bit simplistic. I'm sure a midfield pairing of Lucas-M'Vila could work fine; I just don't know if it's the best way to spend Ł20m+ this summer.

Yeah I guess you're right, but I think we need to spend big on a young quality midfielder. We have our defense sorted now to centre mid, 'build from the back' as they say.

The thing is when Lucas does go forward though, he falls to pieces in the box (I know someone will post the Benfica goal now as some all encompassing evidence that he hasn't missed sitters in the 6 yard box against Newcastle and City, but y'know). I really wouldn't be arsed moving Lucas around again, he's fucking outstanding where he is.

My point wasn't there is anything wrong with Lucas players in midfield. Just don't know whether two players like that would make a good partnership. From what I've seen - not a load - M'Vila isn't any quicker than Lucas, or any more aggressive. Surely we want a much better version of Spearing to compliment Lucas, rather than someone exactly like him. But if M'Vila is those things then fair play, I wouldn't complain.

Lucas and M'Vila are a better version of Lucas and Spearing, Ramirez is a better Maxi (with a bit of Kaká thrown in!), that Matias Suarez lad plays just like our Suarez. ... Blimey, we'd have a hell of a side if we could only find someone better than Meireles... ::)

M'Vila is pricey enough already. Just wait until he has a great Euro 2012 and his value skyrockets. Not going to happen.

I like Joe Allen as our central mid addition this season, but I know he doesn't help us much defensively. Think him and Lucas would be a really good pairing. I know, I know. He's British, Swansea have just been promoted, Jordan Henderson is shite. But the boy can play. He'd be relatively cheap, and he'll be on fuck all wages. And he can at least put in a tackle without getting a booking, which automatically makes him better than Charlie Adam.

I've been saying for months that I'd be delighted to see us line up with Fernando beside Lucas in our midfield two at the start of next season.

Think wherever he goes after Porto he'll turn out to be a cracking signing.

I'd love what he'd provide alongside Lucas, very tidy on the ball aswell. If we had the right kind of players in front of them we could look a very good team.

Totally agree with this. If we don't atleast try and get this guy I'll be gutted. We missed out on martinez from Bilboa a few years ago lets not make the same mistake again!.

Isn't M'Vila a bit too similar to Lucas in how he plays for them to work as a pair?

He is not very similar to Lucas.

For example,Lucas is a tackler whereas M'Vila loves to intercept the ball, extremely good in the air,usually drops deeper while Lucas prefers to take the ball forward are just a few points for starters.

Just nitpicking, but Lucas is a monster in the air. He goes to pieces in front of goal, but in the middle of the park he probably wins 90% of his aerial duels. I haven't seen enough of M'Vila to agree or disagree with your assessment, but regardless of how they perform it, it still seems as if they very much perform the same or a similar role. That's my worry in spending over 20m on him. I don't mind spending a few million on someone who plays the same role as Lucas cause we can sit him on the bench when Lucas is fit, but if we're spending that much on a midfielder I want him able to play alongside our best man in the middle. I'm not saying he can't, but that is my worry.

I could see him going to Arsenal in the summer, I think Wenger really likes him, and M'Vila recently said he would like to work with Wenger. Probably the best young defensive midfielder in the world IMO, whoever gets him will be really lucky.

Don't rate him at all but I love those assists he's done this season where he scoops the ball up in the air.

They bid 35m for Gotze only to be rejected by Dortmund. They got the money and Wenger will spend if it's someone he wants. Wenger also knows next season he has to win trophies.

That happens all the time "apparently".

People believe anything, I did it as a joke after the game as it was April Fools and the amount of people thinking I was ITK was stupid.

On to the topic, Yann been spunking up a move to AFC it seems and I could see it as cover for Diaby/Song but the cost of 18m is not right over valued.

Agreed.

From the Spurs game onward, look how many goals we concede because our midfield has gone missing. Or at least where the gaping hole where a proper dm would cover is part of the reason the goal was conceded. In fairness to Song, I do wonder at what coaching he has got. Since Gilberto left, all our holding players have been guilty of failure to read things, stopping at the edge of the box while the man they should be marking races on to score when the ball breaks to him, completely absent when needed and so on. Maybe under different guidance?

Given M'Vila has been trained elsewhere, I'm hoping he can keep the defensive arts rather then have it coached out of him.

he's made a lot of assists this season

basically wenger's ideal midfield 3 would be Wilshere, Song and a holding player - that holding player I presume was supposed to be that shithouse Denilson who's fucked off back to Brazil pretty much now

Denilson as the out and out holding midfielder? Would be surprised. He seemed more suited and was used in the same position as Wilshire and Arteta is now, ie the secondry holding role.

From his interview seems like he's holding out for a move to Arsenal.

I half expect us to mess this deal up now ;)

France Football reporting Arsenal have open talks with Rennes & hope to get him signed by the end of the season.

With Podolski signed up & rumours of Vertonghen Wenger sure looks to have learnt his lessons from last summer! Wish we could get some early deals.
