Not really. Cancelo, Cuadrado and Kostic switched from winger to wingback, or even fullback, and be excellent with it.
Cancelo, Cuadrado are flank players, wide midfielders or wingers by trade. Thuram is a forward, essentially a striker on the left. Their characteristics and the way they play is completely different. Thuram has also played half his career as an outright centre forward. How many of of Perisic, Cuadrado, Kostic or Cancelo played half their careers as a striker?

They might occupy similar zones at times but that does not translate to similar functions on the pitch.

Of the names you've mentioned, only Cuadrado has spent significant time playing "all 3 roles", as an attacking winger, wide midfielder / wing back, and outright fullback. But Cuadrado made his name at Udinese and Lecce as a RWB in a 352 before ever being known as a winger at Fiorentina. He had that experience prior. Cancelo was always an RB and was occasionally experimented with further up the pitch. Perisic, for all his defending, has never, ever played as left back. Kostic likewise. It's not like these guys were all wide forwards like Mahrez or Insigne and all seamlessly transitioned into fullbacks.

Jesus Navas was closer to forward than RB too. Converting from a winger to wingback is less demanding than to a fullback. Also Piszczek.

The point is, you can’t say Thuram would not work as a wingback if you have not seen him there. That position is rare to begin with. I have seen much more fragile players with zero defensive capabilities successfully deployed in such role, so it’s trainable.

Let the professionals evaluate him on what they see but we don’t.

From what i have seen from Thuram is that he doesn't have the speed or technique to be a winger, he is more of a center forward. What ur talking about relates to forwards or wingers that have the stamina, technique and the pace to adapt to a wing back role.

Recently more forwards are having to adapt to wing back roles due to the way the game has transformed to needing wide players that can also track back and defend hence they can play that position. Carrasco comes to mind where he plays as a wide attacking full back with Belgium and recently Perisic with Inter, but both of those players are wide attacking forwards who would have normally played as wingers in a classic 4-4-2 or forwards in a 4-3-3.

The problem is we won't have enough money to spend on a proper replacement. I'd rather slightly overpay Perisic than go and waste 15M€ on another below-average player.
I believe it`s difficult to predict next season`s budget from now and it depends on reinforcement priorities.
We`ll get the GK for free and probably a forward also on free transfer (Insigne/Belotti). We`ll have to invest for Raspadori. We are getting Nandez in winter so in theory, we might have €15M for Kostic or more for Gosens.

It will really depend on his replacement. Only time will tell. I think he still has one good year left in him but his salary is too high for our current financial situation.
And he`s not getting younger, but he does have experience. Club is able to offer him less.

I think both parties will part way in the summer. Perisic probably believes he can still deliver at a high level at his natural position. He wont play that under Inzaghi. And there’s a high likelihood that some silly English club flush with money can offer him a good final contract of his career.
TBH I also expect him to leave for the EPL, especially now that Newcastle have stupid money to spend.

Agree completely, if he would take a healthy salary cut I'd be willing to have him on a 2 year deal.
Here you go:

Inter wing-back Ivan Perisic could be offered a contract extension beyond next summer, but at reduced terms compared to his current deal.

This according to Italian news outlet FCInterNews, who report that in spite of some reports that the Croat would not be offered a new deal, the club could still offer to keep him on. Perisic’s current deal is set to expire at the end of June 2022, and should he not sign an extension he could leave on a free transfer next summer.

However, the 32-year-old’s performances have remained solid this season and he is still seen as a valuable contributor at the club, so could be handed a new deal yet.

Perisic currently earns a net of €4.6 million per season, an amount which would be offered in any proposed new deal, but the club could an offer worth €3 million per season for one or two more seasons, which would be about a 30% reduction and in line with the extensions offered to other players over thirty.

We will 100% offer Perisic an extension. We offered Ashley Young one for christ sake.
We tend to do the opposite of what makes sense so that means freely offering generous contract extensions to those who should've fucked off years ago (Kolarov, Young, D'Ambrosio) and being ultra stingy about extending those we actually need (Perisic, Brozovic)

:awyeah: I kid, I kid


I assume this conversation about Thuram isn't serious.
:lol: I know right.

@PHM1605 why are you insistent on this minor and extremely unlikely non-issue? In the event that we sign Thuram, he will be played a striker. Why did you drag us into this hellish discussion about the ludicrously abstract, metaphysical possibility of him one day, maybe, perhaps, possibly being converted to a WB? :einstein:

There are rumours of Inter offering 3m/season to Perisic for 1 or 2-year extension. If it's true i am good with it whether he chooses to stay or not. We can't afford having a wingback earning 5m net in our current financial situation.

I know we are having next to zero budget, chance that Thuram ends up here <1%. Feel free to drop it dude. I am just sooo tired of our news recently that am interested in other team's player instead :lol:

I mean, wtf is Insigne 6m, Kessie 8m, Nandez-Giulini combo, Correa injured, Dzeko 180', Satriano against Lazio as all the South Americans absent or such?!? Plus our Vietnam team is getting 0 point / 4 matches :lol: wonder why I am in a bad mood.
