I am not looking for a debate, but I have just been watching Lookman 'best bits'. I'm not slating him before he's started, but is he meant to be straight into the 1st team (I'm guessing do at £10m+) . Reason I ask is he looks too small at the minute. Most of his edge of the box shots sort of trickle into the net as if he hasn't got the strength in his legs yet (not that it matters hiw they go in) .

I would think that he isn't meant to go into the first 11 but into the squad. If anyone thinks he is going to come and be a complete world beater immediately then they need to think again. We must give him the chance to develop properly.

Although it's interesting that we blocked the idea of him returning to Charlton on loan for the rest of the season.
I think he will feature in the first team, but only in small amounts.

Impact sub for sure to start with.

He is 19 and Koeman rates him. I guess Walsh does too or they will soon fall out! It is interesting that he is 100% our player with no loan back and for that fee they must see something.

Has ability in both feet, has pace and can play on either flank.
Lets remember the balls in the Premier League are different than those in the lower leagues too.
The lad is 19 years old and will be chomping at the bit to prove himself.
The size argument isn't really relevant as David Silva isn't very tall neither is Payet and they tend to do well.

Neither is a little lad called Lionel Messi.
