On the assumption he signs, are we storing up problems for when AFCON comes round again?

The statement that Smith wants two is a clear admission we left ourselves short. I would imagine come the summer we will look to make the loanee permanent if he works out, so we would have 3 forwards at the club.

Smith saying one possible in 24 hours.

Not really but I know what you're trying to say. I don't think he was banking on Big Wes getting injured and maybe Kodjia is on his way so hence the two in.

Based only on all the positive vibes from pretty much everybody, I have decided I want us to get NíZonzi

i know they are trying but going into the next two games without a new striker is massively concerning.

comparing the deal to Wes. Wes is a lot younger, raw and the potential to add far more value.

At 27, there is only so much value to be added with this new fella.

His highlights reel seems to be loads of misses.  Looks slightly more dynamic than Wesley, but just as good at missing.

I got a bit worried watching the first part of that but when they eventually showed his goals I was impressed. He looks quick and loves to score with his head. Fingers crossed heís the real deal.

Rumour Bowen is going to leeds. I really hope not as he is a top player that we should sign if possible.

Bowen to Leeds for 3m loan and 15 if promoted seems too good a deal not to get involved in.

It's £10m. That's nothing for a striker these days. Even if he gets 7-8 goals for us over the course of the next three months, his value will double and we will probably stay in the top league with the hundreds of millions that entails. Not sure how much more value could be added than that.

Bowen, Benteke, N'Zonzi and Samatta in the next week/ten days. Just imagine (I realise this isn't going to happen!)...

Yeah that's where i am with him. Big Sam (i know but he was England manager once) recommended and said he would definitely improve our midfield and add balance.

AFCON was due to be in summer 2021 in Cameroon but there was story yesterday saying it was being moved forward to January.

It did move to our Summer. With the next one being in Cameroon it has, quite sensibly, moved again to Northern Hemisphere Winter.

Slimani, Bowen and Nzonzi would be the ideal end to the window for me.
