Well Haller for 20.5M pounds confirmed today, less than half what we paid for him, another David Sullivan special.

Think he'll dominate at Ajax also in that league and always being on the attack.

I just hope we don't spend say 13M on Josh King as a replacement with 6 months left on his deal....

Origi is available for around 20m.

Wasn't the Haller signing down to Pellegrini and former director of football, Mario Husillos?

Moyes likes to play one up top so there's a need for a back up for Antonio. Troy Deeney might fancy switching back to Premier League and might not be huge wages.

Pellegrini and Husillos were desperate for Maxi Gomez who ended up signing for Valencia. I think after they missed out on him, Sullivan just decided to take over and find a similar sort of target man striker really.

Whoever plays as a striker for Moyes needs to have good ball retention, run the channels and have a decent work rate. Haller didn't really offer any of that but I think the pace of the league is another aspect also.

I think Deeney is back at Watford now. Ivan Toney may be another target but Brentford will want 25M plus for him at least.

Neither he or Luka Jović have looked the same players since they were separated. Love to see them reunited somewhere.
Funny how Ante Rebic has been the only one who's probably progressed at Milan out of the 3.

Jovic reminds me of Chicarito, needs someone alongside him up front to do all the dirty work.

Looks like Potter & Ryan have fallen out massively. Hopefully Brighton let him go without demanding too much of a transfer fee. Plenty of clubs would be into him.
