15 million.
Not that highly rated obviously.

That's a 'we don't really want him
but we'll take him off your hands
if you're skint'
kind of offer

ITK have suggested there's more to the deal than cash, so most likely some loan activity is being factored in.

In all seriousness
i think he would be an excellent buy.
and, at anything under 25 million, with little downside.
Right age, some vision which we lack,
a little edge which Poch seems to like,
What can possibly go wrong?

10 to 15 million is what I said he was worth. 3 goals 5 assists, nothing special. He will have to work hard to remain with us for a second season.

Eriksen plays at a much higher level though. What did you think of Grealish, when you've seen him play?
Yes, but he can only play what's in front of him. My point simply was, you can't just judge on 3 goals 5 assists in the season when he missed the first half of it with an injury. I think he looks a great prospect. He certainly has an eye for a pass, great vision. Also a better ball carrier than Eriksen, can beat a man well.

Agree with all but the last bit.
Eriksen, like Modric prefers to let the ball do the work.
Pass and move.
Skinning rabbits comes to mind.
