Ed, what do you think of Hodjberg?

{Ed001's Note - he is ok. There is real potential there, but he has to get out of the habit of passing back when there is a better option. When he drives forward he is excellent, but when he sits deep he just gets into the mindset of playing the ball back constantly and puts them under pressure. Play him in a midfield 3 with the instruction of driving forward and I think he would be a very good player.}

I’m sorry I haven’t watched him much, but driving forward as in running forward with the ball or setting the tempo and forward incisive passing?

{Ed001's Note - both. I meant it in an overall way. Far too often he gets dragged into passing for passing's sake.}

We have enough of that already. I liked Koch for the DM role at Spurs. But it’s funny because it seems like another Dier like situation where he’s getting shifted everywhere.

{Ed002's Note - Robin Koch (CB) There is plenty of interest in RK from the Premier League as he is seen as a solid and reliable player who is easy to integrate as a replacement for aging and departing players. Leicester have a depleted and aging central defence with Morgan and Evans heading toward the end of their careers at the highest level. They have an option on Ryan Bennett but ideally want to add Kock to play alongside Soyuncu. Spurs have issues in central defence with the two senior players needing replacing so adding at least one CB to what is now a pretty poor bunch makes sense. They will see RK as a good solution and Gabrial as an option - but he appears to be heading elsewhere. Napoli are prepared to let Kalidou Koulibaly leave at the right price and see RK as one potential replacement but not the preferred choice. Leeds are looking to RK as an option if they cannot persuade Brighton to sell and Ben White to sign a permanent deal. West Ham interest looks like it will only come to the fore if Issa Diop leaves, and that seems unlikely unless West Ham are relegated - when a whole new paradigm kicks in. Benfica want to keep hold of Ruben Dias but will cash in at the right price – which is when they will look to RK as a replacement. Freiberg want to extend his contract.

I'll tell you what that's a dream signing for Arsenal, Gooners just love Koch.
