Selling Walker and Wimmer and replacing them with Sanchez and Aurier is genius business.
Fees aside, Sanchez is a huge improvement on Wimmer and Aurier could be just as good if not better than Walker. A huge improvent for our squad. They're also younger and have a higher potential.
If he works out, that's great. But his signing is looking like a Sissoko kind of deal where a decent player is available on deadline day and so we went out and bought him.
That is what Llorente is for. To ensure that Kane does not get burnt out.I don't think Llorente is bargain basement I think he's the perfect guy for the job... physical and proven goal scorer with tons of experience. Kane and Janssen (assuming he stays) can both learn things from him. He is also a good back up to Kane if Janssen is out of favour. The fact that last seasons champions are after him too really shows how respected he is.
Just because he wasn't who we immediately thought of - I'd prefer him as a striker compared to the best target men in the league (benteke, Costa, Bony)
