That's a good point actually, but even though we are back to one recognised striker currently, I'd still prefer, as suggested above, to invest in the midfield.

Just what we don't need, another big lump of a centre forward.

I would be a lot happier if we spent every penny we have on the midifeld.

Mind you, as its the Mirror reporting it, the chances of it being correct are probably pretty small.

Sods Law. you can bet the one nobody want to happen will be the one we get

With our Scouting set up and network I assume Babacar has been watched extensively over many months hence our renewed interest....honest!

 


Bring back Brolin

Totally agree. We seem to be stuck with Benteke. Wickham is permanently 'sick-note' but Sorloth may yet prove himself.
We are just like England, plenty of talent but lacking a midfield general. Wilshere has gone and looks like Grealish is off to Spurs (silly man) so where is our missing link? We are scouring Scandinavia when the answer maybe in our back door, Jonny Williams if he could find some 'steel' and not get injured so often..

What I donít get about this is if he was available in January for whatever money then why the hell did we spend what little money we have on sorloth ? This smacks off the media making up a story thatís been there for the past three transfer windows imo

Do you think he was scouted by the same bloke that rejected Virgil van Dijk for being too slow?

There have been Babacar rumours for the last two Transfer windows but yes It does seem odd, unless we are planning to offload Benteke?

You must be joking? Notwithsatnding that he's a perpetual sicknote, he falls into the "hard-working, but no end product" category. Would he seriously be on anyone's list of players we must sign if he wasn't "one of our own"?

Sarcasm is often funny, and that was.

Has played for Senegal so would know Pape Souare. If we got him in to help bang in a few goals along with Loftus Cheek back I would be happy.

This - what is the obsession with Jonny Williams - I just don't get it..!! He was a promising prospect 5 or 6 years ago in the intervening period he's done nothing to suggest he will ever fulfill that promise.

Move on please..!!
