Might be on the way out of Burnley, surely he's the perfect player for this system. Can't stand him playing for Wales though!

Guessing around £10m, any takers?

I don't think he fits in well at all in the Wales team, but what he does do is win every flick on. Would be a huge asset at corners and throw ins, something Ken lacks.

Would be shit as a lone striker though which is probably what we’ll be playing. He doesn’t fit the bill and I’d be very surprised if we go for him.

Agree, If we can get him for 5m then its a good signing.

He's out of contract next June, I reckon you could pick him up for £5 Million but it would be a no for me, I would rather put the money towards somebody else.

No thank you. Would much prefer Rondon as a target man but we are desperate for a striker with pace like Vardy. That’s what wins you matches.

Vokes is good in the air but not particularly mobile.

The problem with Vokes is he is not a goalscorer and that is what we need so even £1 million would be a waste to us.

He scores 4 goals in 30 games last season, it's just not a good enough return.

We need someone who is going to get us 13-17 goals minimum to have a chance and if that means spending £10-15 million than it has to be done or we may aswell forget it

not a single player in the bottom half of the league got more than 12 goals,


extremely unlikely to get anyone prolific, but we will need to rely on more than just 1 striker to score goals.

Its a good point, I think people are slightly unrealistic if they think we are going to get a proven premiership striker getting a lot of goals.

I didn't realise that tbh, fair point, my 13-17 marker was probably a tad high :lol: :thumbup:

The point I was trying to make though is we need someone like a Glen Murray, no doubt his 12 goals for Brighton have been pivotal in their survival.

Mitrovic would be better if Fulham don't go up, Newcastle will sell, i'm not sure how much hwe would cost though?

He would be good for us can play with his back to goal, and either bring players in or turn and shoot and also a great crosser when out of the box and good header when in receiving the cross.

He would get double figures I'm sure with Warnock working with him, he transformed Fulham from an ordinary side to the best team in the league from February to the end of the season.

Bit of a moody bugger by accounts and possibly not NW's type.Not likely to get the service he had at Fulham either.
