If we're signing two centre-midfielders in the form of this guy and Shelvey, I'm happy to see they're identifying the weakest area of the side. But I've read several concerning things that infer we'd be playing this guy out of position right from the off. :lol:

ive read the opposite mind, and that he's played a lot more centre mid than out wide, english journo who covers french footy on twitter reckons he's a a player, and a centre mid one at that.

Does he play central midfield nowadays? Used to be a forward/winger type from what i remember of FM...
"What is a club in any case?
Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.
It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love." – Sir Bobby Robson

He is a winger.

In fact, Thauvin is not a winger, his prime position is attacking midfielder.

As has been said countless times on here he plays CM and sometimes AM for the past 18 months or whatever it is. Mandoon posted his positional stats yesterday

I don't know much about Saviet but if the reports are true with him and Shelvey, a strong, athletic defensive midfielder and a driving box to box player could be exactly what we need.

It sounds too good to be true though.

Signs to greetings of cautious optimism > 1 billion arguments about what his position should be > sold.

According to Transfermarkt.com this season he's played:
 19 times as CM
 2 times as ACM
 2 times as RM
 2 times as RW
 1 times as LW

Don't know how reliable this site is, and they only have little potition data from 14/15 for Saivet.

Haven't seen him play so I have no idea what he could bring to the team.

What type of CM is he? I'd assume box to box?

This is him this season, stats wise at least.



Seems his best stuff is in CM. I've no idea if he's any good like, but I reckon he primarily plays as a CM now

Right, thanks for the update.  My knowledge re Saivet, a few years ago, is a pacy winger or forward who loves to beat opponent with pace.

There's no way we are signing him and Shelvey for CM. This lad is probably the fall back for Shelvey. Or if we sign both then he will get put out wide because there is zero chance of Colback being dropped.

Whoscored reckons his best attributes are tackling, aerial strength, defensive contribution and holding onto the ball. Sounds like a Tiote replccement if you look solely at that.

Tiote wants away this month apparently so Shelvey will take over from him alongside JC. Saivet will be the backup option when Gouffran departs too.

Probably intended to replace Sissoko so we can continue to play a pacy CM at RM if/when we sell.

Based on the little Dennis Wise scouting I did he didn't look particularly imposing physically. Based on his wiki he's smaller than Colback too.

So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need

Same height aren't they?  Wiki says they're both 5 foot 9 (1.75 meters) anyway.  Difference is Saivet doesn't have the physique of a small boy.
