I'm a massive fan of Wilson, my only concern is whether his bad old injury flares up again in the future. He's an explosive runner and I'd be worried it might ping again. I'd have to put my trust in our medical dept to figure that one out. :shock:

Wilson > Perez. Unsure if better than Chico

Shelvey - cover for Noble, Snodgrass and Rice on a par with Obiang.

I for one would be saddened to see Pedro go.

I've just had a mental thought when thinking about how much our midfield costs since we just got in Nasri.

Nasri - zilch
Wilshire - zilch
Rice - zilch
Noble - zilch
Sanchez - zilch
Obiang - £3m
Lanzini - £7m

:shock:

And most of them are **** hot and technically gifted at what they do in the middle of the park. And it's a group that most of them wouldn't look out of place in a top 4 squad. It's a sign of. It's a sign of very shrewd recruitment. Ok, carry on..

If true, would be utter madness - seeing how short we are and for that price.

Why the **** cant they ever get good value for players leaving?!


I think that is fair value for Pedro, after all imo he does not bring a lot to the party, he is certainly not a Pellegrini Technical player either, i say sell and let Pellers bring in his own man, he will have half a season to bed in ready to hit the ground running next year!

Thankfully we'll be priced out of signing Wilson. Goal and injury record makes him worth about half the type of money he's being touted for.

The Shelvey links are so persistent that I'm starting to think there's something happening there. Puzzling one – unless we're concerned about homegrown numbers in the squad next season when the likes of Carroll, Cresswell, Antonio are at risk of being moved on.

If Callum Wilson goes to Chelsea he'll available for loan in August. Proper Chelsea signing, we should definatley be giving that one a pass, no need for us to pay a homegrown premium for an average player.

I really don't see anything in Wilson that would make anyone pay £15m let alone £50m.

Crazy Money for an average Premier League striker, that just happens to be English.

The Italians reckon we are after Diawara from Napoli, 21 years old, DM, €30m minimum.

Yeah just read that, also saying Napoli don’t want to sell, I’m thinking Medal is more likely

We were rumoured to be after him years back when he was at Bologna and had the weird quiff. Might even have been Allardyce's final season? But probably Bilic's first.

Wonder if the club may take the view that they sell Arnie and reinvest the funds in centre midfield (or elsewhere) and we have enough to ‘muddle through’ with a loan singing or something up front.....

Wouldn’t be the first time they will have taken the view that they want to sort out the striker position in the summer window.

I'd recommend a Fresh Prince style barnet to any young player wanting to stick in the memory

£50m the asking price? :shock: Ok, I'm out. I do rate the player though.

Am I the only one who doesn’t rate Batshuayi or Origi?

Batshuayi's goals per minute is staggeringly good. At £14m it would be a give away.

Some similarities in the stats to Anderson's.
