I want him not as much for his explositivity bur because he means business with that left foot. We need players who convert half chances to goals, and are to be trusted when clear chances present themselves.

However much I like Samu I see him as too uneven in his goals contribution. He is dependent on having everything click, and on his worst day he is rendered completely invisible.

If Thauvin can rediscover his 22 goal season he will help this team a lot, but judging by his career he can struggle too. No saviour figure, that's for sure, but a strong RW option with experience.
