    Could be a smart acquisition. £35.6m release clause.

    If the price is right then a brilliant player to have for 3-4 years while Rashford and Greenwood progress.

    Decent player, not sure if he's worth it though.

    I’m all for it.

    Why was he second choice for Sevilla for a bit?

    Shit. Didn’t realise he had a cheapish release clause. Well up for this now!

    Be nice to get someone with a good goal record.

    La Colina de Nervion - that's the source. Hard to know if there's any truth at all.

    Would be a decent stopgap and hopefully take a fair bit of the goal scoring load off Rashford's shoulders, allowing him to play a little freer and work on his game further. At this point, I would prefer a known quantity to replace Lukaku, giving Martial and Rashford a couple more years to show more than just potential.

    I saw the Tweet and heard the name and was underwhelmed but saw the stats and the release clause and in all honesty, is he worse than what we've already got? Nope. We need some decent squad options that aren't over 32.

    Been a great signing for Sevilla. Could be a shrewd signing at that price.

    I like him, watched Sevilla quite a few times and he looked good. I think he is well worth the release clause (if it's correct).

    Be a good replacement for that carthorse Lukaku. Kind of underrated outside of the Fifa world. 35.6 mil release clause. All for this!

    Definitely. Especially if we manage to get £70 million plus for Lukaku.

    The player who came off the bench to put us out of our misery.

    Has a decent goal scoring record plus loves to score in Europa :drool:

    His goalscoring record is consistent but unspectacular.

    Averaged a 1 in 2 at Toulouse, and seems to be on about the same for Sevilla.

    For a 12th man/competition with Rashford I don’t think we could do much better.

    Been in the French squad of late and done well. Hopefully he can fully replace the insufferable Giroud.

    #9 spot is for Mbappé after the Euro 2020.

    Think it'd be a decent signing. Probably bullshit story though considering all the briefings say ole doesn't want stop gap older players.

    I think that's for RW - but can't be sure. We have young strikers so makes sense.

    I could be wrong mind.

    He’s 29 isn’t he? 3,4 seasons, not too bad.

    Wan Bissaka
    Dan James
    Maguire
    Ben Yedder (Rom replacement)
    Fernandes (Pog replacement)
    Van De Beek or Tielmanns (Herrera replacement)

    I think that would be a very good outcome for us.

    You can't have everything. If you think we will solve everything in one go you're going to be disappointed.

    Scored same amount of goals with left foot and right. 8/8. Not bad. Decent squad option I reckon

    I don't actually rate him either but we've got about 7/8 positions we need to improve on and we also may have people leaving which only makes more.

    Don't think we will sign a DM this summer.
