We definitely need another immediate impact signing in the ilk of Sigurdsson.There’s times where a club needs a particular type of player to transform their side, regardless of fee and age.
Liverpool had that with VVD and Suarez.
Man City had that with Aguero and Tevez.
Juve had that with Pirlo.
When looking at players like Allan, if he would transform us and cost £40m+, so be it. From what I’ve seen, he’s what we’re desperate for in midfield.
We need to find the right balance between long term resale value/potential, and immediate impact signings.
Joking aside, completely agree with your post!
