Tchoumeni is one of the best midfielders in the market at the moment. Then there is the option of Toni Kroos who can play in that position as he did in my second year when we won 22 games in a row, we have Camavinga who played last year.
Can’t replace Casemiro with a player with similar characteristics, but we have others with different characteristics, Team Pirlo played in that position and did well.
