I agree on the long-range shot, that's something we lack and should be solved.

If that buyout clause is correct, I think that's a very reasonable price. He was the key player in Sevilla's midfield this season. Maybe he could both serve as back-up for Touré and as a player who can play higher up the pitch.

And with the possibility of Yaya either leaving for Arsenal or not being fully fit by the start of next season it's never a bad idea to have an "insurance policy" like Keita on board. I won't dispute he's got a "cannon" for a leg and has shown to be exceptional on set pieces. I agree with you Pep. For the price, its hard to find a better "value" out there than this guy. I say let's "cut the check" and get the deal done!
