Grioud was only ever intended as a stop gap, he was probably near the front of that queue. But we must have been looking at other more long term options before. I think we have enough quality and ability up front to get goals, but we just don't create much.
Lukaku was always a bit of an outlier in terms of goals and ability. He turned 23 and was our top PL goalscorer and European goalscorer before leaving and was one of hottest properties in world football, the lazy shit.
If we are going to get a striker, they need to be top quality and striker for years to come, and we have Onyekuru to add to options. Unfortunately there is lot more demand than supply at the top level.
