Surely we will have a replacement lined up before he goes. Really like mendy, but no point letting him run down his contract if we can cash in and get someone like McGregor who can play dm and cm in a similar way.

Presumably this is why Amartey played there in pre-season too.

That's a damn good point, Amartey is and always has been a reliable understudy. Just gets the job done, I was thinking he'd probably benefit from a loan move to try and get 25-30 games next season after his horrific injury but depending on the next few weeks transfer activity he could have a role to play here next season.

Would be sad to see him go personally. 

Me too. I like him a lot. Maybe he has been told his role for the season and he has decided he wants more football than is on offer though :dunno:

Only a few of us are old enough to remember that.

Surely he would be suitable for Arsenal, about their price range and they need a new midfielder to replace Ramsey.

Actually think Arsenal have played a blinder in this window. Everyone knows they are skint, but they are still going to spend circa 60m on Zaha.

But then again it might be 3m for the next 20 years....

If he leaves it means our starting the season with Hamza while Ndidi recovers from Afcon. Just saying.

Not necessarily.

 

Afcon is over and he'll prob be back next week?

 

Also, he is made out of titanium like a terminator.  He'll be fine.

Makes good business sense to me. Will get a bit of cash for him instead of him doing for free next year. Not like we desperately need him when we have Hamza.

Ha! He may well be!

 

But if we want to minimise the risk of injury or fatigue later in the season he’ll need a rest now to recover from an 11 month season.

More reports of us being in talks with St. Etienne today. What kind of fee would we be hoping for do you think?

I can't see us getting the 13m we paid for him. Mental at the time it was a club record fee ?

Gotta be worth £8-10M surely. IIRC we paid about £13m for him in 2016 so we should be able to recoup a good proportion of that. Despite what some people seem to think, he is still a good player, and at 27 is probably reaching his prime years having seemingly put his injury problems behind him. Only down side is that he only has a year left and unless we cash in now (or offer him a new contract) we could end up losing him on a free. If we cant get a decent fee for him I would keep and give him a new deal, at least that way, even if he is not first choice we still retain some sell on value at a later date.  OK so he is no HM but we should follow the same principal and if we do not receive what we consider a fair offer then he stays.

Yeah- I’m the current climate it wouldn’t surprise me if he was worth exactly what we paid for him but we’d surely be okay with getting circa 9-11 million for him?

I'd hope for around £10million, potentially more as he's reaching his prime years.

 

Actually wouldn't object to him getting a contract extension, he seems to be a good team player and get on well with the squad.

Hope he stays actually. Get rid of Slimbarmi first and foremost, then others who will not be afforded a place in our eventual EPL 25.

Around £5 to 7 million would be a fair price as he is out of contract soon and given he got off to a disastrous start the injury concerns knocks a bit of the price off. 

 

I don't think he is that bad but has just been a bit unlucky a la Kramaric. Either way we get a somewhat decent backup player or we get him off the books. It's a win win of sorts.

In the end he turned into a decent player but I think we can cash in on him. Ndidi and Hamza are more than capable replacements for the Mendy role.
