If Koeman and Walsh want him, go and get him.  Got almost a 1 in 2 return in shite Villa and Palace sides

Agreed. I wonder if everyone moaning about him has actually seen him play that much? He's a proper centre forward with regards to headed goals, but there actually loads more to his game than that.

In the game at Goodison last season he was all over our back 4. Dropping deep laying off perfectly weighted balls for his team mates, closing our defenders down. And he's clever as well with regards to his heading ability, times his runs well, and does that trick peeling off the centre back and somehow ending up with the smaller fullback marking him at the far post.

All his goals for Palace and Villa here: (Palace were just slinging crosses into the box for him, but that was Allardyce's side). He scored a load of tasty goals for Villa.

He took a considerable step down moving from liverpool to Palace. Usually when players do that they insert a buy out figure in their contract. I wonder.....

I think he'd do very well for us. Especially if we're getting the cross master in Siggy in...

Can't beat a good old fashioned centre forward.

At 26, has some good (goal-scoring)seasons in him

£25m? Give it a go!

They paid 32m
Prices are through the roof now..... There's absolutely no fucking chance we get him for 25m


Simply simply lovely

I thought Palace paid £27m +£5m add-ons?

We could offer £25m + £7m add-ons

I think it'd be one or the other. There's no way we're spending the best part of £100m on Sigurdsson and Benteke, which is what in effect we'd have to do.

Put like that, you're probably right.

Right age, proven decent scorer in the league and would suit our new goals.
