*Past transfer talk*

It's probably going to be pretty easy to guess but take a look at these stats and see for yourself. Guess the player and guess at my thought process/disappointment for bonus internet points.

Key Player
1. Llorente.
2. A couple of months ago he was a free agent and we didn't sign him. Actually, I think he is still a free agent.

1. Llorente. CORRECT
2. A couple of months ago he was a free agent and we didn't sign him. Actually, I think he is still a free agent.
2. His stats are ~0.455 goals a game for us. Higher than any other team he played for. A world and euro cup winner. BUT, his stats show that Swans squad of 16-17 was his most productive and as a player, he was on form. In a team that allowed a world cup winner to score more goals than he ever has before. So we sold him ASAP.

I'm sure we spent 3 or 4 times as much for Baston that year and barely played him (the Clement era). He (Llorente when leaving) spent 2-3 seasons as a chair warming vegetable with the odd cup appearance.

In contrast to the likes of Routledge who found his home with us as a previous journeyman. What other players did we squander at their statistical best? Chico?
