    Whats your opinion on Luciano Vietto and how does he compare to Lacazette/Dybala/Icardi and other young strikers?

    Hey Allan, I see you referred to Ntep in your article for PSG, I wonder what you think of his potential. Also what do you think of Anthony Martial? Does Dybala sound like a 30m player?
    Is Amavi better than Baba? other than Paul Pogba, do you project any youngster capable of being the next Yaya Toure for City?

    Hey Allen, as aways thanks for replying to our questions. I last asked about Adam Maher and could he make it in the EPL with his size. I liked your example of QB Russell Wilson. I am actually from North Carolina and Wilson played QB for N.C State University. I watch him most Saturdays as he demolished most college football defenses he faced. At the same time he was being compared to a taller stronger QB who had graduated from NC State years earlier, Philip Rivers. Rivers at this stage had already started making a name for himself in the NFL. Many said that Wilson was good but he was no Philip Rivers. To support your point, Philip Rivers maybe taller and even have a stronger arm than Wilson, but Wilson is the one with one Super Bowl ring and he nearly got another a few weeks ago. So I definitely get your point.

    Just a few questions now, Can you update us on the progress of Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco. Is he the real deal and do you think Monaco would sell for the right price?

    Do you think that Davy Klaassen will end in more a central midfield (engine room) role or is he suited to play as an attacker? Is he ready for the big leagues now or does he need another year at Ajax?

    If someone is willing to pay £30 mil for Paulo Dybala should they go ahead and pay another £15 mil or so and get Franco Vazquez as well, since Vazquez is class and has a telepathic link to Dybala.

    Hey Allan, have you heard of Nicolas Benezet? He played for Nimes in Ligue 2 before jumping to Evian, and now is on loan at Caen. If you've seen him, I'm just wondering if you could offer an assessment of his ability?

    Also, as a teenager living in America, I'm pretty interested in the MLS. I support Arsenal, but the MLS' growth has me intrigued. Do you think there are any players that could make the jump from MLS to Europe? Other than the standard answers like Luis Gil, Wil Trapp, Gyasi Zardes (though I think if he moved, he would fail) etc.

    Last thing haha, since the MLS is attracting more players in their primes, from lower leagues, could you think of any potential targets? For example, recently, Darren O'Dea, Piscu, Andrew Driver, Cedric Matwabi, Laurent Ciman etc. moved to the MLS. One name that you mentioned a while back in terms of being underrated was Willie Overtoom. Nowadays, he's playing for Zulte Waregem, but I'm not sure if he's getting playing time. I think he could be good for the MLS. Same thing with Gabriel Obertan, although his minutes have increased recently. Anyway, sorry for rambling, but do you think any players whose careers have stalled, or are underrated should be targets for the MLS? Thanks!

    Allan, I have been reading your articles for months now and I love how all your articles are researched thoroughly. Really appreciate the work you put in.

    I was just reading your last article. Barcelona getting a backup left back is fine, but don't you think they would need a right back first?

    Gaya is quite short, so (just for squad diversity) who do you think would be a good tall but quick back-up left back? Also, do you think Gaya's performances make Lucas Orban slip under the radar? What do you think of him?

    Is Javi Martinez one of the most underrated players in the world when fit?
    Is he better suited to his new CB role or his old DM role?

    Yes Dybala has the higher ceiling, but i believe vasquez would present the better signing at the moment for a big team in need for an attacking mid.cDo you think Allan Marques will be courted this summer by bigger teams, seeing udinese aren't doing as well as they used to? What are your thoughts on Brahimi? Do you think he'll be sold for a big profit? How good do you think yannick bolasie will be if he improves his final product. He's electric up until the final tenth and then just blasts it wide into the stands. Must be so frustrating for palace fans. Thanks for the advice regarding DM role, ill take it onboard. Cheers

    Do you know any promising French right backs for the future? It seems that RB is the only position that France are lacking in going forward since they've got good goalkeepers, centre-backs, left-backs, midfielders, wingers, and strikers like Areola, Boucher, Nardi, Ahamada, Varane, Zouma, Laporte, Rose, Landre, Umtiti, Mendy, Digne, Kurzawa, Amavi, Pogba, Kondogbia, Imbula, Sanson, Veretout, Tolisso, Bakayoko, Ferri, Rabiot, Fekir, Ntep, Griezmann, Thauvin, Niang, Coman, Martial, Sanogo, and Lacazette, all 23 and under.
