Ake isn’t that much better (if at all) than Dunk. They’re all much of a muchness. Seen them all play well and i’ve seen them all play dogshit.
If we’re losing Maguire we have to replace him as closely as possible in terms of ability, physicality and experience.
If you do a matrix scoring system, i’d imagine Dunk would come out on top. Experienced at this level, a leader, good with the ball at his feet, good in the air, physically dominant (6ft 4 in height and not far off in width!!).
The price is high. It’s really high but dont be scared by it. The overall picture of the team with him in it would be more valuable than without.
