Krycho Scores, Value Rises

[poll id=”3″]

Krycho just scored for Poland.  And his already exploding market value, climbs even higher.  He has probably passed Bacca as our most desired/rumored player.

At what point should we start to feel nervous about him leaving in January?  Should we feel worried at all?  Would Arsenal consider paying his buyout clause?  Would we be OK with collecting 30 million euros and turning a 6-month 25 million euro profit?  If he left, how would we fill that void?

Krycho has been an absolute monster for us.  I’m very excited about him being on our team and how much he brings to the squad.  Especially in January, Mbia will be on international duty for the African Cup of Nations, and we’ll be pretty thin in the DM position already.  But with Iborra, Banega, and Cristoforo coming back, would we be OK?  Would we need to bring in someone new?

I figure, if someone pays his buyout, then we accept the money, thank them for their inability to scout as well as we do, and consider a replacement signing.  But if they sold him for 15, I’d be livid.  20 I’d be annoyed.  25 I’d listen.
