At 27, players are entering their prime...
Lucas Perez in 15/16 season scored 19 in 38 games , since then he has scored 22 in 75 .
Hernandez in 15/16 season scored 26 in 41 games , since then has scored 29 in 97.
So I am not sure that your theory that all players are entering their prime at 27 holds any weight Alfie .
Why havnt these 2 improved on reaching their prime as you say , neither have had horrendous injury problems which would have held them back ie ; Carroll - Wilshere .
I would also think prime age would have been nearer the age of 25 years for strikers and maybe 27 for defenders and in between those ages for midfielders ..
Got to be a touch of luck for all players as well , physical and mental attributes , injuries , personal ambition and love for the game must come into it as well just not the fact that we all improve at the age of 27 so are better for it .
I mean, of the 10s of 1000s of footballers playing professionally...I wouldn't be using Perez or Hernandez as representative samples...

Generally, yes, I think if you look at defenders they are peaking then, strikers often seem to enjoy their golden years then, unless they are pace monikers like Owen or Anelka. But if you looked at the premiership greats; lampard, gerrard, bergkamp, sherirngham, scholes, Viera, Keane, zola, Ashley cole, Gary Neville, makelele, David silva, kompany, agero- id still stick to my argument the best seasons are generally 26.27,28,29.

Wingers might be different, although some would argue the likes of giggs had some very good seasons in a more central role in advancing years

Our own recent history has di Canio, payet and arnie hitting top gear in their later 20s.

Well it's the type of transfer that prior to moving to the LS we would have gone for , though we have made a few like this since we have been there , eg. Zabaleta/Fonte/Sanchez wouldn't have said these type of transfers are what is called progress .

As an Ogbonna and or Reid replacement and as a experienced pro to help out Diop in his position? Certainly doubt he’d trade Chelsea’s bench for ours & it would have to be on the cheap, neither is likely!

Tbh I'd rather stick with Ogbonna as a back up to Balbuena/Diop if we persisit with 2 CD's. In any case if we are in the market for Chelsea cast offs Kurt Zouma is a better option imo.

But we're more likely to end up with an unsellable Oxford now his latest German adventure is turning into a bit of a mare.
