According to the express, man utd, arsenal and southampton are all tracking ever banega. I think that this could definitely happen for us. I don't see arsenal going for him as they already have an abundance of attacking midfielders and I don't personally see motes wanting to go for him as he might need to go for bigger names to try and please the fans. I think that in the January transfer window we will go back in for him and hopefully get him. What do you guys think?

After watching him a few times on TV not worth buying. Definately no better than what we have.

Agree6 Disagree8

Where would he play? Schneiderlin, Wanyama and Ward-Prowse have locked down all the midfield slots for the next decade.

Attackers who are effective from the wide positions are the order of the day. That's not Banega.

Agree7 Disagree3

Think he will replace ramirez in squad

Agree9 Disagree2

Don't need him, may need another CB, a LB and a winger but that's it

Agree4 Disagree0

Looking at how MoPo likes his team to line up we won't be getting any wingers any time soon, AMC's who can do a job on the wing is far more likely. I'd love to see Will Hughes come in though, have him on the left side of the 3 AMC's, JWP on the right with Lallana in the middle then with the likes of Ramirez (if he stays) J Rod (who can also play up top if needed) and even Guly as back up it would look quite interesting

Agree1 Disagree2

So your saying to me you want to make the recent saints player to be called up to england and one of our shining stars this season (jay rod) back up.

Agree0 Disagree0

Not exactly back up, probably worded it wrong, probably a rotation option and then filtering into a 1st team option once Rickie isn't performing as we know he can

Agree0 Disagree0

Ok Fine, wide forward player. it's pretty much a winger

Agree0 Disagree0

Ok all good for jrod getting the call, but I don't think he has shown or produced the form he was in at the end of last season. Maybe this call will give him that cutting edge I feel he is lacking. With it though he could be one of our best players

Agree0 Disagree0

Banega would be great for squad depth. Could sit central just infront of Morgan and Wanyama which would still allow a front 3 of Lallana, J-rod and Rickie?

I agree he isn't urgently needed but if we are going to last the distance and challenge for Europe eventually we need more options than just a good starting XI.

Ramirez is a waste of space and £12m at this point. Sell him and get someone like Banega in who you know will do a job.

Heard Southampton where preparing a bid in the region on £9-11m for Real Sociedad's French Winger Antoine Griezmann, Pochettino has good connections in Spain and homes to close the deal in January.

Believable6 Unbelievable5

Oh right you watched him lastnight and made up a rumour

Agree11 Disagree0

Hardly, considering they discussed a possible transfer when we played them in a friendly back in august?

Agree3 Disagree2

Griezmann is quite highly rated, but on the evidence of the United game the other day, he looked seriously lightweight. Can't see this one being a goer.

Agree3 Disagree0

Griezmann is worldclass. I've seen a fair bit of him.

Worth about £20m. He's only 22 and is Sociedad's best player and has champs league experience.

Agree3 Disagree1

Would love to see him at Saints but not 100% sure he would fit in with the work ethos we have but would be happy if proven wrong

Agree0 Disagree0

OMG YES PLEASE! This guy is pure class!
