Should we keep looking at the short term though?He stated few times he wants to end his career in the US, so if there’s even a remote chance to sign him for a year, two or three I’d be over the moon. Would easily be one of the top strikers of the league and I think he still has few good years on top level. Don’t think he’d be very interested in joining us, but if this rumor has any legs I say make it happen.
And both RVP and Zlatan proved to be quite successful transfers. Of course, I’d probablt rather see us signing Jović and see him becoming a successful player here for many years, but as we lack quality now some short term fixes could be useful - and as much as I’ve never been a fanboy of Lewy, he’s a model professional who would put a lot of effort to bring us back to Champions League. Ensuring a return to top4 has to be a priority now, so I’m all in for getting top class striker along with few potential stars for the future.Should we keep looking at the short term though?
Did that with RVP when we could have gone for Lewa.
Did that with Zlatan when we could have gone for others.
All short term!
Is he really that good? His scoring record isn't very impressiveHis agent linking him to us to get a better deal at PSG. Moussa Dembele is the only striker we will sign if we buy another striker. He fits the profile - the right pace, age and price who has a higher talent ceiling that hasn't been reached yet.
I'd take him in a heartbeart. Not every signing needs to be for 4 or 5 years. He's much better than what we have, is an experience winner, is a model pro and buys time for Greenwood to develop as a striker.
