None of them excite me.

I'd have to pick Martial from the options.

with Ibra coming back, maybe there's a chance he'll be surplus to requirements?

Josh King of Bournemouth looks like a great player and now has a record in the Prem from last season. Young and good stamina, strong and fast - exactly Koemans type of player. He also wouldn't cost the earth and we would have no problem prizing him from Bournemouth.

If he is they'll be a boatload of CL teams after him

Why wouldn't he cost the earth? As with any bottom half Prem team; why sell your best player when it could get you relegated?

Obviously I'd have Kjng here but he's not a target man. Been well documented what Koeman wants.

Costa on loan until Jan.  It makes sense, tough player who can do a job for us, and we accept he wants to go to Athletico Madrid in Jan, I think Keoman wants Giroud, the Sanchez question still has to be sorted, but if Sanchez stays then Giroud my get little game and so opportunity in Jan.

Slimani fits the profile, and is most likely to be available.  If I was voting "hope chest" I would go Batshuayi, but unlikely and not a named option anyhoo.

FWIW, I think Slimani would be a very sensible acquisition.

Bournemouth dig their own grave if they sell King.

If somebody comes in then I wouldn't be surprised if it was someone out of the blue.

Difficult because no-one knows how much money we've got to spend. If we're still spending big I'd go for Benteke. If we're on a budget I'd go for Charlie Austin.

I was thinking Benteke would want out soon.

in terms of cost and likelihood i went for dembele. I can't see giroud coming and definitely not dzeko, maybe costa for 6 months though
