Is it worth tapping Origi up?

"Hi, member of team running away with the title, recent Champions League winner, scorer of important goals fancy leaving that all behind for a relegation fight?"

Nah. I know they’re often a bit yampy over that way, but they ain’t that yampy.

Mitrovic a handful again tonight, we should go in for him in January. We'd be much more effective with him leading our line.

No chance. They'd be confirming their relegation.

I've just looked at Batshuayi's record and he's hardly played - is he always injured? Not exactly prolific but has scored against big teams and knows the league - it's a yes from me. £22M if Palace want him apparently - too rich for their blood as they would surely have to find a home for Benteke if they did want him.

6 in 13 for Palace from last January so he stayed fit playing for them.

I like that vision !
Though he's seemingly an effective 'Scott Hogan'
A finish version who can finish !

We can do better.

Name him/them

Cavani, Batshuyahi, Barbosa, off the top of my head.

But the club employ a scouting network, I don't. They should be able to find a more exciting prospect somewhere on the planet considering the wealth at our disposal.

Cavani of PSG?  The 32 year old who Athletico Madrid are hoping to sign if they can beat Juventus, Man Utd & LA Galaxy to his signature?  OK, right, good call.

There's no such team as Athletico Madrid and even if there was, they can't afford him, we can. LA Galaxy play in a pub league. Man United will probably have a new manager by January so who knows what players they will be after? Anyway Rashford seems to be doing well. They probably have other priorities. As for Juventus, they're already paying Ronaldo about a billion a week and Serie A clubs don't make as much as we do. Plus they seem to be doing okay without him.

But, nah. We have among the wealthiest owners in football. Let's just settle for some average Fulham player or a Rangers maniac who can't stay on the pitch and never scores in big games.
