    That's true, but at the same time we can't say he's been disappointing as he has hardly had many chances. He did not start too well and was disappointing in some sub appearances, although he was just starting at a new club.

    I don't think he's the most intelligent player, but he does have pace, physicality, and is a good finisher. I think he would have helped us a lot in the past few months. I don't think he's similar to Lautaro in any way really, and they can play together. If it's for a lower fee I would like to see him here. He had a very good period between the Frosinone and Empoli games where I believe he contributed to 6 of the 9 goals we scored and only started 5 games in that period I believe. He's another one of those players that I don't believe got a "fair" chance with Spaletti as other players have had much more disappointing performances and manage to string together many consecutive starts without really deserving it.

    Agree. For 30m€ or more, I don't like getting players who aren't exactly bright in football IQ. Keita is exactly like one, but he has also real qualities. And some positioning can be taught of course. Hard to say if Monaco will allow lower fee. It might be if there are no market for Keita. It has to be under 30m€ IMO.

    Keita would be okay. For 15m. And a sub role.

    Agreed, 20 max (maybe a 15+5 bonus deal). Which means we won't get him because there's no way Monaco is dropping their option price by 1/2. And they could easily get 25+ from some EPL mid-table club.

    We'll see how much money Suning are willing to spend on transfers in general. If Suning turn us into Man City after we clear FFP, I really don't care what our transfer fees are.

    That would also mean that Keita would still be a sub player but the cost would be of no concern. Because spending 300m in a summer and having Keita as the starter means that it's money thrown away.

    He is not meant to be a CF, why are we repeating the same mistakes from the very beginning of this season.

    We should not redeem him, not even for a discounted price. I mean, don't care about the price that much as I care about the quality and impact in our game. He has been far from convincing.

    Not even worth 5m. He is a lot heavier than Dambro. How can Spalletti not see this for 90 minutes?

    It's not like he had any other decent option available anyways. Our line-up selection was very limited with so many unavailable players.

    idk I think if Monaco lowers their asking price to something like 20 mil we might take a shot on him even if he doesn't end the season so convincingly. We're gonna need to completely re-staff the attack in the summer with Icardi, Perisic, and Candreva likely leaving. Keita certainly has talent even if its been difficult to put on display this season and his attitude seems to be pretty good all things considereed. It's not like we can buy 3/4 Chiesa/ Dybalas. IF we're lucky, maybe we get 2 Chiesa/Dybalas and 2 Politano/ Keitas. No, there's no way we're paying 35mil for him, but I think Monaco will also have trouble finding buyers at that price.

    Knowing us, we are going to try to outpeasant everyone and give them a 15 mil take it or leave it offer... or another loan proposal - both ending up rejected.
    I have a weird gut feeling about him that he will do well if he stays. He scored goals for us this season when we actually gave him minutes.

    Then, of course, there is an odd impression that Spalletti doesn't quite like him. He seems not to value pacy dribblers too much.

    Plain ol winger at best - don't have a clue wtf he's being played as CF for - and unless we see some games when he's replacing good little fella Politano or Perishitz, we shouldn't buy him
