Romano adds a level of respectability to the rumour.

26, 1 in 6 goal record, playing for a big club in France. Looks decent from the YouTube highlights reel. Quick feet, turn of pace, bit of a French McGinn?

Following Marseille for quite a while i can guarantee that Samson is a very good player.

How would you describe his playing style?

 He is very skilful and hard worrking. Can  score the only thing that bothers me is that he usually plays where Jack plays. He is a bit like Barclay maybe better at defending than him but not as good at attacking. Plus he is a good person.

A total all round midfielder. Box to box.  Offers a competition to several positions and can play Douglas Luiz role alongside deep lying or further up. And can get up and down the pitch no problem.

Certainly an energetic upgrade to Hourihane . Will offer a great option to press in final third
A technical upgrade to Nakamba.
Direct running with the ball puts him in a McGinn mode with touch more flair and grace that the bustling SJM but will carry the ball better than Nakamba and Hourihane and plays off both feet.

As say he could play alongside and deep like Douglas Luiz but like Dougie he can be played higher up and thus be a goal threat a ball-winner and can offer creativity

Would be a great signing providing he settles certainly a quality addition to the midfield engine room
Offers plenty.

But does this mean Björn Engels stays as our number 4 centre back?
That role should be for Tyrone Mings

To continually progress we need to be linked with better players than we have today or ones that simply make others better. Importantly so that when we do rotate (voluntarily or involuntarily) the drop off isn’t as much as it is today. Morgan Sanson would be a very good addition.

I think we need another option up front and out wide. El Ghazi, Traore and Trezeguet have all had decent seasons so far - but they all seem to blow hot and cold. We could improve out wide, especially if Grealish stays central. And we need competition for Watkins. Davis isn't up to it and we won't know what Wesley will return like.

Kamara is the player that looks like Douglas not sanson imo.

As has been alluded to earlier in this thread, given the issues around their TV money we should be looking to rinse Ligue 1 for all its worth.

Profit at others misfortune you mean? I would like us to give a fair price for any player or players that we see could be developed. If we were skint I might think differently but we’re not. I know it’s a cold hard business but still, as Aston Villa we’re more than a business looking to exploit opportunities.

Naaa fuck that, its a dog eat dog business. Hence why Levy offered us £3m plus Onomah for Grealish when we were scraping about for pennies. Thankfully a couple of days later we were taken over by 2 rich bastards.
