Plus I think there’s an argument in the idea that age of player can lead to them being undervalued as an asset.

E.g Walcott got 19 Goals last year, how much would Zaha go for if he got 19 Goals this year?

I am playing devils advocate a bit cause I’m trying to convince myself it’s not a terrible idea, but a goal scoring wide right forward is very difficult position to buy. Gamble on his fitness and production numbers. 20m and 120-140k wages would be gruesome but not the end of the world.

Context.

Walcott got 19 goals for Arsenal.

We are no where near Arsenal. we muster a couple of chances per game.

Walcott would sink like a stone here.

Were not Arsenal. Nowhere near.

Last time I said this I also suggested Walcott would sink like a stone here. I was perhaps a little hasty in staying that.

Given the players at our disposal we would improve significantly to create more chances to help Walcott shine.

So, and i assume i must be massively wide of the mark here because it seems like nonsense:

We shouldn't buy good players because we don't have the calibre of players to play around them for them to continue being good?

Not sure where your going with this Mick.

Im not suggesting we shouldnt sign him.

Hes a better option than Niasse or anyone else for that matter apart from maybe Tosun.

For it to be mentioned by Sam means it's pretty much done.

The brown envelopes stuffed with unmarked fifties have been exchanged.

Malcom looks like a potential superstar too.

I'm assuming they'd play him in the middle....
