I think he will generate significant interest across Europe.
Based on what?? He hasn't done anything whatsoever in his entire career, lots of talk about promise when he was younger but he's never actually lived up to his earlier hype. He failed miserable at Newcastle and he's now 28.

Has Thauvin been decent against opponents in Euro cups or owt like that? I've no idea if he's any good these days and my opinion on him is based purely on his awful time in the Prem. Is he anything like a footballer now?

I'd take a winger getting 1 in 2, to be fair.

The one decent season he's having is in a side that's 6th in a medicore league that's 18 points behind the team in 2nd place (PSG don't count)
The other seasons have been poor or average at best.
He might turn out to be great but his career says otherwise.

I'm not sure you read the graphic properly.

He's had more than 1 decent season. Still at a shit level of course.

Maybe this helps. Over 15 Goals whenever he's played regularly for Marseille.

Ghezzal and Diabate...tasty.

(I’m joking of course, I’d take those two and Tielemans, Mahrez and Kante every day of the week).

Fair point Matt, if he was that good why didn't another club come in for him earlier in his career, he was rubbish at Newcastle and appears to struggle when moving clubs

I don't understand your logic. Should we only be signing players that everybody else is after? How many people were in for Evans? Or any of the other great buys we've made?

Let's not forget, the season he played for Newcastle they were related, so he was hardly in a forward thinking team. I've no idea if he will be great or not, but to write him off on one bad season in a shit Newcastle team and ignore several seasons of being a scoring winger seems absurd.
