The fact that we've targeted such midfielders in bits and pieces is irritating
There has been consistent interest in a RW, in a CB, has been in many other positions for a long time, but for midfielders it's always been 'monitoring' or we've targeted them in bits and pieces like Bellingham, Caicedo to some degree, maybe add Tonali and Rodri there.
You can always argue that oh you can't buy a player for every position of need - not some great insight, it's kind of common knowledge, point is they could have divided who they targetted when in a better way
Wasn't against not targetting one necessarily last summer (there was a case for one over VDB but was okay with either), but also because the main target was Sancho, when he wasn't attainable, a starting quality deep midfielder could have been bought back then
Can say there were too many bodies in deep mf etc but ole facilitated that by handing Matic a new contract
