    Taking into account his age (22), rumored price and versatility, I don't see how the transfer can fail.

    If we get him, I expect him to prove to be a solid lb backup (which we don't have) and beat bartra, verm (if he stays) and eventually mathieu as CB choice.
    Then he can improve with time, or stagnate and be sold at no loss.

    Abi karma too.. black french LB/CB playing for Lyon

    There's no question that he's one of the best defenders in the league. That's not overrating him. 20m price tag is very reasonable. I expect Aulas would try to push it closer to 30 though. I've watched lyon about a dozen times this season.

    I would be so happy if we will buy him. He will leave Mathieu, Vermaelen and Bartra far behind and fight for the place in the starting 11 with Mascherano. No doubt. Huge potential in this guy.

    Replaced Mathieu - imagine if we buy him this summer to compete with Mathieu

    Some rumours about us chasing him - I just wonder if we will wait until his fee increases during/after the euro..

    According to Sky, West Ham United are interested in Umtiti.

    France Football Talked about it and they mentioned Umtiti, if he moves away from Ligue one he wants to go to Spain. They also say Barcelona have already initiated contacts with Lyon about the possibility of signing him.

    Umtiti said some time ago for "Goal" that he prefers La Liga than Premier League. But he doesn't care if it will be Barca, Real or Atletico. We need to sign him fast before English clubs offer much more than €20M that Lyon wants for him.

    It's funny as over here people always deride Ligue 1 as a mickey mouse competition yet constantly plunder the league for its talent. Such hubris in the Premier League makes me sick.

    It's just a question of money. English clubs don't know how to train and grow up a talent ... Look Leicester : no one was train in their academy ... It's more easy to have a lot of money and plunder his neighbor especially who have great academies like France but no money (except for Paris ...)

    Juventus do the same thing : they already took Coman for free and try last weeks to do the same thing with another parisan talent : Ikone... UEFA did nothing to stop this plunder... they don't protect clubs who invests in an academy.
