Honestly I think we need someone bigger and faster (and more defensive). It sounds cliche - but you look at the team , we don't have defensive fullbacks, lazy attackers who don't defend unless it's a big game and lack defensive structure. This role is going to take quite a bit of defensive intelligence or it's going to take some pure athleticism,
If De Rossi were available I'd say go for him - because he's a fantastic defender and he can also pass it with the best of them. Iilaramendi is great but he ain't no DM. He needs someone capable of doing defensive work next to him....ie he needs Khedira...ie Khedira is still a starter...ie bad idea.
