Back to Tagliafico 🙂
As an Ajax seasonticket holder I've seen the guy up close for a couple of years now. After coming over from Independiente midway the '17/'18 season (after winning them the Copa Sudamericana!) he has been a beast. Came in as just a ruthless defender, he's now leaving Ajax as a complete player and a regular starter for Argentina.
The rumours of him being availablefor just 25 mil. are already confirmed here in Holland. Signing him and keeping Alonso for the upcoming season seems like a good combination. Nico can be the man on the left when playing with 4, while Alonso can be your (inverted) wingback when playing with 3 central defenders against either a strong opponent or one with 2 up front.
Spending 60/70 mil. on Chilwell seems ridiculous. In some Spanish papers Cucurella is mentioned as a possible option. Like him as a player, but he's another attacking player like Alonso.
