McArthur is still performing to a good level but there are signs of decline, poor at Norwich and Southampton (great v Arsenal) and we could do with an upgrade, McCarthy looks crocked to me, Schlupp is unreliable and on a huge wage, Luka has been out of form for a while, Meyer is a misfit, Kouyate is good defensively but is not so good in the anchor position, Jairo is decent, so I don't agree we're OK in midfield - we need some pace in there and some flair - it's not the same priority as full back or striker, and when Wilf goes we'll need two wide men as replacements imo, but we still need to bring in a quality midfielder.

All the players highlighted are either in their 30s or will be later this year so they really are in the twilight of their careers.
We need younger players with more energy in that midfield 'Engine room'. This thread is about Bentaleb a player who has been frozen out at Schalke and hardly played, if at all, in the first team this season.

He's not really a creative midfielder in my opinion. More like a defensive one, but with some creative skills.

Strong and feisty though, definitely built for the PL.

Useful feedback Matteo. Sounds like he would fit in well at Palace, and apparently is keen to come

Maybe we could swap Meyer for Bentaleb ?

That would work.

 


If you come to a fork in the road, take it.

Schalke have just signed Todibo for loadsa cash, who plays CB and CDM I wonder if this will speed up the Bentaleb exit.

Has a price been mentioned any where, is he a possible load? loan with options? straight buy?there doesn't appear to be any financial info anywhere, course I might just have missed it.

European media outlets linking him with a move with no mention of any price or terms of the transfer.
Just to mention that Bentaleb has not played first team football this season!

I suspect that if comes to Palace, the club would agree to a 10 million buyout clause if a 6 months loan is successful. I think Schalke prefers that too. They'll have a hard time getting 10 million from somewhere other than the Premier League after they've frozen him out.

10 million would have been a small price for him 1 year ago, he was playing really well in Germany.

But now...it's a bit big. If he were to settle in though, it would be decent for a 25 year old player.

If they'd accept Meyer for the 10 million would be even better. He played there. Not sure if they want him though, but some German Bundesliga club out of 18 should pay 10 million for Meyer (at least recoup the salaries invested in him).

I think Bentaleb is one of the Top 10 best central midfielder choices the club could make. There are also James Milner, Matuidi and Aranguiz who are ending their contracts in the summer and could be brought in free with all of their experience, but also the younger Aleix Garcia, Bazoer, Mathis Jensen, Swift, Michorl, or even some free experienced players.

No chance Meyer will be going back to Schalke as any part of the deal. He left on bad terms and still has some beef with some of the big wigs in their set up. In general Meyer has a pretty low reputation in Germany as a player who moved for money over career development - and in football terms that hasn't panned out too well just yet. Unless there's some rapid development he'll have to take one hell of a pay cut with his next move. I do think he's a good player but needs to be part of the right set up/ and maybe the right league.

Anyway like you say 10m for Bentaleb this time last season would have been an absolute steal.

Bentalebs name hasn't once been mentioned amongst the back room staff according to Hodgson himself.
Well that settles that, and I'm quite happy about it.

With the lack of inactivity it seems nobody has been mentioned by the backroom staff.

We purchased McCarthy who had only played 7 games in the last 2 seasons.

Now we are linked with Bentaleb who has been frozen out by his club and has not played a single league game this season.
