Looks like we are making a serious effort to sign this guy. He looks like a really solid defender but my personal objections would be:
1. Since he will be challenging Samuel and Rano for a spot, I think we need a defender with very different characterestics than those we already have. Personally, I would like to have a really speedy defender to compete with the pair.
2. Since Palermo paid more than 7 mil for him, I doubt whether he will be sold for less than 9 mil. Would that really be worth it?
