Title: Sooo...Josh King anyone?
Post by: YankeeBlue214 on October 08, 2020, 01:25:07 AM
ToffeeTV's News Daily segment today featured some news re: Everton being the "frontrunners to land [King]" after it was reported he turned down Sevilla & another club over the weekend.



Though they don't cite any sources, Ped & Baz have close ties to the Club and several others who also have close ties. Not entirely ITK but they're often on to something.

So far only the Echo has run any sort of rumor/story on this potential signing, so maybe bears watching over the next week.

Thoughts?

I would quite like him for this season but would want someone better on a permanent deal next summer, and there's no way Bournemouth are going to loan him out since his contract is up at the end of the season. Someone will buy him.

So in the short term yes, but not really beyond that.

Good utility front man. Would be useful for not much money. Not over 18 mill though.

Post by: KoemansNumberTens on October 08, 2020, 02:00:57 AM
Surely with him in his last year and Bournemouth having been relegated hell be going very cheap. Think hell leave for somewhere between 10-15m. Hes cheap, we are short upfront and hes a decent player. Yes please and in 12 months wed still make a profit if we wanted to move him on

This is what I was thinking. As close to 10m as we can get and I think he's a great buy who checks a couple boxes in that he can play both CF & RW as a starter or as a sub.

Basically the best we can sign given the leagues we can buy from.

However it's now a seller's market as Bournemouth know he's the best anyone can buy and regardless of his contract situation will hike the price as much as they can, meaning it's unlikely to happen.

No, hes mainly a second striker or LW.

He's played at least a decent # of games all across the front, which is pretty much what we seem to be looking for at least.

SS - 88
CF - 74
LW - 53
RW - 26

Very versatile. Right-footed too which means if he were on the right, he could provide some wide play for games we don't want Coleman bombing forward, with James obviously in his magical centerland.

Word.

Not sure if Greg is one of the guys who's tight with Ped & Baz (they have close ties w/ the Athletic EFC guys in general), but I do put a touch more stock in what the ToffeeTV fellas commit to video. They're right more than they're wrong.

Hm, its not many at RW, though, is it.

Fine as CF sub/cover, though.

Hed be about 4th or 5th choice for the LW slot.

Yes we do want Coleman bombing forward to distract the opposition left back.

You do realise either Allan or Doucoure provides cover for Coleman as he bombs forward.

It is.
Due to supply and demand.

Which is why buying the only banked prem-league level striker in a division when it is the only available market to buy a banked prem-league striker from is going to be more expensive than it needs to be.

We need to get to 3 months with no more than one person out at a time from DCL/Richarlison/James.
That's the gamble.

But yeah, he's not in a bracket to command mega-bucks.
Just like he wouldnt be in Jan.

He has West Ham written all over him though.

With DCL being told to play more between the sticks and not work the channels as much these days I wonder just how Tosun would fare if we didn't sign anyone?

He's a good finisher even if the rest of his game is pretty average... It's possible he could do reasonably well as a poacher in our new creative team, so maybe that's why we've let Kean go without the funds to replace him?

Its been said that DCL is a difficult opponent for CBs because hes so mobile, always on the move and a constant pest to the opposition. The only way I see Tosun annoy his opposite number is when his hair falls out and sticks to the defenders shirt.

Yeah there's no way Tosun has half the game of DCL, but if you lay it to him in a decent position he's a threat.  Not ideal but not sure King is either, although he'd be more of a pain to play against coming on after 70 mins with a tiring defence

If he goes to West Ham it means we were never interested in the first place.

How many times have we missed a trick though, we apparently missed a trick with Haller and who cares now, and I bet there will be hundreds more. We only miss a trick if it's someone we identified that we don't get, so I'd throw Gabriel into that, but we got Godfrey instead, so was missing that trick a blessing in disguise, time will tell.

West Ham building themselves a decent championship side there.

Benrahma is class to be fair but considering Yarmolenko, Lanzini and Anderson are on the bench every week then I'm not sure West Ham is the best place for someone of his style.

Typical Moyes' approach though these type of signings and more often than not he does ok picking players out of that league to be fair.

I actually thought West Ham in general were looking pretty decent in recent weeks in the PL. Moyes doesn't mind some flair players in the team, but they have to be willing to put in a shift and that's probably why some of those players aren't getting a look in.

West Ham should be solid midtable this year.

Hes on 90k at Bournemouth and wants  an improved contract is he was to move, apparently - that appears to be the biggest turn-off for interested clubs.

Id like to think hed accept a sensible offer to join us and be part of what were building.

Not necessarily true. VVD, Suarez, Vidic, Evra, Bruno Fernandes, Bergwyn, Haaland, Djeko, Doucoure, Ndidi, Matic, Aubemayang all moved to bigger clubs in January. Loads more as well.

Can be harder to get value, but as long as it's not a panic buy, and it's planned and strategic, you can get good players in January.

I can't believe he's on 90k a week at Bournemouth. Don't know how accurate this is but suggests it's 45k,which I'd say is right

I agree completely, I think were now at the point where we need to be buying first choice signings and if theyre not available we wait until they are, or identify a new target.

Buying King for more than 10-15 million is a mistake imo no matter how good he seems.

I agree completely, I think were now at the point where we need to be buying first choice signings and if theyre not available we wait until they are, or identify a new target.

Buying King for more than 10-15 million is a mistake imo no matter how good he seems.

I wasn't that fussed about signing James or Doucoure though, so be careful agreeing with me ;)

I'm surprised this thread is still going despite the fact that Ancelotti and Brands are more than capable in selecting excellent targets.

Thats the thing though innit. I think most blues are very confident in our current recruitment setup but its fun to speculate on what he might offer. I think he would be a decent option if he was available cheap but another prem club will pay more than what we will. Barring any major injuries, we dont really need him

Nothing of better value (not saying King is of value) ever comes on January window.

I was thinking about this earlier. I think there maybe some bargains to have this January due to covid ruining many clubs finances. It might be a different window to what we're used to. Just speculating...

Deadline is today (Friday) and there is no noise so I doubt this or any other deals will happen.

Same here.

So please diregard most of my opinions as jibberish. Except when I'm right of course
