Vitesse have been shit? They are 6th in Eredivisie. That's not that bad as they have a lot of money to spend for a Holland club. I think they would want something like at least 8 mil..
Are they?. I must of been thinking of last season this season if you get what i mean cos Albert Ferrera (i think it was him, ex Barca, Chelsea & Spain FB?) was in charge and doing rubbish with them. I didn't know they'd come into money either so no wonder there fortunes have changed.
£8m seems alot for him although he's young and looks to have a lot going for him and tbh, to me, looks the kind of striker we want and need, strong, puts himself about and wants to get in the box and on the end of things and looks like he can finish when given the chance.
Im a bit surprised we haven't been linked with Jelle Vossen again, we was linked to him in the summer on a few occasions for around about £6m but Genk are no longer in any European competition so i would imagine his price wouldn't be so demanding due to that, and when ive seen him in the champions league he's looked a decent player and got a couple of goals aswell, a goal against Chelsea and a very good finish against either Valencia or Leverkusen?!.
Could be worth a punt, and plays upfront on his own for Genk with de Bruyne playing off of him so would fit into the 4-5-1 or 4-2-3-1 formation, which ever way you look at it, we play. I'd imagine with Genk being out of Europe of any sort, they wouldn't be so resistant in keeping him and maybe 4 or 5 million would get him?. Surely if we had something like 2, 3 million then that would be enough for a down payment and pay whatever else on the drip?!.
With Bill promising money to spend next month im hoping he's true to is word and gives Moyesy something, how ever much it is, so that we can sign someone decent and im just throwing some names out there that we've been linked to and that i thought we might be able to afford?!.
Then again, me thinking Bill will be true to his word and give Moyesy some decent money in January is just stupid in itself so whats the point hoping?. We'll probs end up with another young striker from abroad that wont be no good to us for another few years or someone decent brought in on loan who makes an impact but then we cant afford to sign him permanently for next season and beyond!.
