That’s the type of player that can actually improve our defence— Stephen Martin (@stephen_m1209) January 8, 2020
I’ll happily take him and Semedo thank you very much ☺️— ENIC OUT (@LxcasMoura) January 8, 2020
Oh my the players we are linked to are very promising— MK (@TongeeNdombeIe) January 8, 2020
Would be the perfect pairing with Davinson Sánchez. Young, confident with the ball and left-footed. This would be dreamy. But the cost is the main concern here.— Andreas Kingbo (@KingboCOYS) January 9, 2020
So he will take 3 months to get fit, another bench warmer to keep Tanguy company— Roy (@RoyBorchard) January 9, 2020
He’s injury prone. Hard pass.— soerenpaul (@Rundfunk_West) January 9, 2020
Yes please. But isn’t he injury prone or was it just the one major injury he had last year?— TangangaSZN (@clinicalsissoko) January 9, 2020
