As above. £13.5m
While taking your point, I wouldnt describe him as piss poor. provides excellent width on the attack for arsenal but is also better now at cutting inside and linking play that way.
I posted this a couple of days ago.Brentford reporting undisclosed.
Sky reporting £13.5m
Scum reporting £18m
Brentford want his pace. Canny beat FF for the seethe when Ceptic sell a player.If there is one thing that mob do right it's selling players. Insane the amount of money they get in after negotiations, Even if it aint 13.5 million and pretty sure it will be a high figure and thats for a central defender who cannot head a ball ffs.

£13.5m is how the SMSM will spin it and technically they are not lying. But their accounts will show that the actual cash changing hands is nowhere near that.
It probably is worth £13m.
He will pen a 4 year deal at £2m a year. = £8.
They will save £2m on the rest of his contract =£10
They will get a couple of million for him=£12m
And his agent will trouser £1m
So technically it is a deal worth £13 million.
But it will be fun reading the Hotline or listening to the phones in when the frothing trogladytes start demanding that their board spend the 13.5m on players and the board can do no such thing because the cash is all paper talk.
but the concern is they clearly have a good eye for a centre half. They might end up taking doofy back on loanIf its undisclosed, it means its nowhere near the quoted figure of £13.5M.
That figure is likely the fee plus the totality of the add-ons. Likely pie in the sky stuff. What i will say though, is they ar worse without him. Look at the options they are left with at this point
