I think the striker we will bring in will also be adapt to playing wide

Did I read somewhere that Wesley has played wide sometimes or am I imagining it?

Potentially. I know he likes to play deeper so it痴 possible

From what I saw the other night he値l be someone who will hold the ball up well and create space for the midfield 5 to get into scoring positions. I can see him scoring 15 next season but a lot of our goals will come from his work off the ball or with his back to goal bringing the likes of Jack, Luiz, Trezeguet, Jota etc into things.

In one of the YouTube videos it did look like he was playing as a right winger to me. In any case it looked like he could do a job there if he needed to

The most he's ever got in a season is 10, in Belgium.  I think 15 in his first season in the Premier League is a little over-optimistic.  Vardy 'only' got 18.

I meant across all competitions. And 15 might be high but he値l hopefully benefit from better players and just through his natural improvement. Anyway liked what I saw from the game the other night though admittedly a small sample and a long way to go.

Ah fair enough.  I still think that's a little on the high side.  If he gets 9 or 10 in the Prem then that represents a solid start for him.

Veretout to Roma for 19m euros..

I presume he was one of those Dr Tony cashed in on the sell on clauses last summer?

We need a striker who is prepared to be understudy to Wesley. Irrespective of money that is not a strong selling point to a player so this will be a tough part of the recruitment process.
I would say competition not understudy

Then we need to spend an equal amount so neither feel they are #1 and it is a genuine battle for the shirt
