Am I the only one who is a little underwhelmed by the Tielemans signing? (Potentially atleast) I mean, he's good and everything but he's not going to take us to the next level and he's not a lot better than Xhaka is he? Am I expecting too much from our CM alternative to Xhaka? What do you guys think?

{Ed014's Note - don’t want him in the slightest, over rated, lazy and not what we need.

A waste of money!

For what it`s worth (not much granted) IG and Ed I rate him but fear we will need another midfielder too. Lots of caps for Belgium so not awful. Is he lazy? Better not be VTH.

Not sold on him myself fellas.
I couldn’t believe Tolisso was going for free and we didn’t even contest his signature.
The word is that Arteta and Edu overlooked Bissouma in favour of Tielemans and that he’s first choice so they’ll have to stand behind it.

Sounds like choosing xhaka over kante all over again.

I'm with you Suffolk he loks like very good player every time I've seen him.

It might be that we need to sign two midfielders now with Partey moving on. I really was hoping we’d get rid of Xhaka but that looks increasingly unlikely.

Well compared to Xhaka he will be a major upgrade, but then again, so would my Nan, once we dig her up. However, I can’t really see what he offers that Bissouma didn, t, for the same sort of price, but I can see a lot that Bissouma offered that Tielemans does not. Probably be one of our better “on the cheap” signings, as, like others have mentioned, he is a full international in a very strong team. Also, similar lazy comments were bandied about Ode, but I don’t think too many can say that about him now. So overall a bit meh, but secretly hoping to be very pleasantly surprised.

I think he will do well but provided he is being brought in to play as an 8 and not relied upon for defensive duties. I think joining a new club will inject a new lease of life into him too. 25-30m for a premier league proven CM who has the skillset to fit into what Arteta is trying to create seems extremely low risk, and as others have said, he is definitely an upgrade on our other CMs.

Completely different type of players. Tielemans much more on the front foot but still think we could have bought both at the prices. Particularly now if rumours to be believed VTH.
