    The thing is that if he wants to go to the WC he will want to go where there is a chance that will happen which rules out a number of clubs.
    He will still consider his future though and so of those clubs that may enhance his chances there will be those he wouldn't consider which leaves a pretty small group, us and possibly Arsenal who will, let's be honest, be desperate to get someone in come January.
    If Everton won't deal then his chance has gone anyway and he will review his options under completely different circumstances.
    Will we be the only options next summer? Not necessarily but I still can't think he'd find a better one because he will still want to enhance his England chances and playing alongside Dele and Kane beats any other option.
    If he can make it work for him he could be the main man in the England attacking midfield come the world cup 2022.

    When was the last time we signed a first team player in the January transfer window ? The last two January windows we were in the mix to win the league and signed nobody.

    If he does join us in January, he'll be training with 5/6(I think winks got chance too) england internationals every day, southgate would probably pick him on that alone.

    Our January offer can't be too low, if it is, Everton could just make him see out his deal out of spite.

    Hope we can get him early in the window, if it's left to the last few days he might take another team just to get out of Everton and have the chance to earn a WC spot.

    I agree, levy needs to get this sorted out if we really want him, He needs to be working with Poch and our squad as early as possible, so get him signed on January 1st.
