El Aguila

Plays anywhere across the front line, very lively player with nice technique. He would be the kind of striker we don't really have. I'm not sure he's really suited to playing behind a target man, though, but only because I've never seen him try it. I see him more as being able to come on anywhere in the front three and give an extra option.

Never heard of him before, but I like the cut of his jib. Seems a price we can afford for a player that can be so versatile. Could solve a few problems for an acceptable price if 14m Euros is true.

Munir El Haddadi has two league team options to get out of Barcelona this summer. Specifically, Deportivo de la Coruña and Alavés are negotiating with the Catalan club to get transferred. Next to them, the English Crystal Palace , trained by Frank de Boer , since the beginning of the season and the Italian Sampdoria since this week also have communicated to the Barça the interest of signing the Spanish-Moroccan.
The striker, who last season was loaned to Valencia , is one of the players with whom Ernesto Valverde does not count for the next season. Still, Barca do not want to let it go yielded - many other teams would be interested in having it on loan - and wants to get chopped by the forward. Initially they put a price of 20 million euros, although given the date, they should considerably lower their pretensions to let the striker go either to Vitoria or to La Coruña.
From Barca they hope to find the formula to finally get to the starting number. Surely, they will try to keep a percentage of the benefit of a future transfer of Munir .
For the moment, the negotiations take them between clubs and then have to reach an agreement with the Moroccan striker who is aware of the interest of the four teams and waiting for their situation to progress, which could be resolved earlier in the week.

He should be able to play in a front 3 or as an AM in a different shape. Don't think he has the attributes for the forward player in a diamond though. It sounds as if we will be looking for fit, available and bargains. If he fits that criteria then he must be an option then. At his early level of form he would be excellent.

Barcelona forward Munir El Haddadi is attracting interest from Crystal Palace, according to El Mundo Deportivo.

It's all pure guess work as we don't know who stays or goes, if based on what we have currently staying, i would say another 4 new additions are still needed.
Keeper= Adrian, CB= Chambers, Winger/Striker= Burke, Striker= Robin Van Persie, but that is NOT going to leave us with much change from 40m, so players will need to be sold and i can see Kelly and Townsend being the main players sold to raise funds, possibly also either One of Cabaye or McArthur could be sold, which would allow us to bring in another 2 players into midfield to give us a good balanced squad.
Jordie Clasie at Southampton is up for grabs would make an excellent replacement for the vacancy in midfield to fill, quality rather than quantity.
Assuming we were to sell the 3 players mentioned which could fetch around 28/30m, that should mean a realistic net outlay to spend by the Board which surely should make it possible.

But still the best goalscorer we could dream of getting, and allegedly available at 4m, would his wages be any higher that CB or WZ? so i don't see that as an issue, and when you consider we are paying "mystery man" Sako supposedly 60k p.w for doing what? puts it into perspective
Name me a striker of that class we could attract without having to pay 40m, even Benteke who does not measure up to him as a goalscorer we would ask 50m. RVP still averages 1 in 2 and at 33, as a comparison is nearly 3yrs younger than Defoe who has just signed a 3 yr contract, what about Audriz at Bilboa he is aged 39 and still bangs them in for fun, and until recently was playing for Spain.
If signing him is the difference of staying up or going down, then he is worth every penny. It is simply a question of using him sensibly as he wont play 38 games a season, but probably will get you 10-15 goals, add Benteke contributions and we are in a healthy position.

Much as I enjoy your posts Nigel I do not get why you keep suggesting Townsend to be sold

I am seeing it from a realistic point of view as to how i see him fitting into the way FdB wishes to play Jim, without doubt he has ability that i admire greatly and if only he could do better for Palace there is no way would i want to see a player of his ability leave Palace. There is so much similarity in what i see at Liverpool and to Sturridge, no one would doubt his playing ability, but so much that frustrates.
The other point is do you honestly think FdB sees him as a capable RWB, i don't, and as a wide player he has disappointed me as in the whole his delivery into the middle mostly is erratic, and could be better to CB so as to be more effective.
I have felt since he was ousted from the England setup his focus has slipped and his Palace performances have been inconsistent, and for a club of our standing he becomes a luxury we can't afford.
The reasons i gave for wanting to sell is purely based on if he does not figure in the managers plans, and if he is our most valuable saleable asset that needs to be sacrificed to strengthen, then so be it is my view.
And in all honesty Jim, looking at how poorly Benteke is performing currently only mainly due to the system FdB employs and also the lack of decent service he receives to be effective. As we know his game is all about headed goals and is never going to be about creativity and allround play, if played to his strengths he can be awesome.
Currently he is doing neither so his true value to the team is minimal, he also is a player i like and admire, but if the manager sees it differently then something has to give. Unfortunately no different to the Townsend situation, so the same could apply if de Boer does not change his playing stance as it will require players able to fit in.
And we end up with fans favourites being sold.

I was saying the same about Benteke on the way home last night. We currently have a very expensive asset and seem to be planning not to play to his strengths. We either need to adapt such that Townsend (and Zaha) are allowed to play wide again and get some crosses in, or we may as well let them (Townsend and Benteke) go and bring in players that fit the plan.

I'm still hoping that the impact that Townsend had when he came on last night will have shown the manager that there is another way and he might look to re-introduce some attacking width. If there's any chance of that we need to keep him and Benteke. He needs to decide very quickly though.

On a related point, Lokilo improved no-end once he was able to play wider and find more space. He struggled when receiving the ball with his back to goal and a centre back behind him. I know he's just a kid and Zaha is our best player, but I think the same is true of Zaha. He needs to play wider and receive the ball in areas where he can get a run at a defender. He certainly didn't look like he was enjoying having a big centre back breathing down his neck against Huddersfield. By all means let him run inside more when he has the ball, but we need to get him the ball in space in the first place.

Do read my reasons given above? and absorb. Also how others like Defoe and Aduriz who are a lot older are still playing on and performing as is RVP currently, that only comes due to ability and the professionalism of the the player in staying fit. Waste of money? think again.
What has current Palace crocks got to do with RVP? he remains the top scorer wherever he goes and that does not happen if you are constantly injured, he still is a 1 in 2 striker so can't be that injury prone can he?
As for waste of money, think of Sako on 60k p.w, Campbell whilst with us on 40k p.w and a few others and what their contributions have been, now that is justification for you to say is a waste of money.

P.S
There is talk that he is to be recalled into the Dutch national team, not bad for a crock!

couple of things I don't really get about this:

Why do you think we won't be playing to his strenghts?

I wish I could remember the exact stat now but FDB's Ajax team put in more crosses than any other team in Holland and I think it may have been Eurpoe (care). i.e. the formation and style encourages width, but it comes from the WBs and the 2 either side of the CF who can pull wide into the channels etc.
I assume that is why Townsend was tried at WB because it is that position in this shape. The good thing about the shape to me is that the WBs are always there offering width but the skillful players that can beat a man and creata an opening aren't locked only into a narrow strip down the line where TBH they can easily be contained with numbers. So it really should suit Wilf. It should also suit Benteke if you believe he wants a steady diet of crosses to convert.

The more contentious question I have is that - 'does' Benteke (himself) really like crosses. I know that sounds stupid but he doesn't really behave like a striker that wants it on his head all of the time re positioning etc. He is always wanting it to his feet. If I am honest it drives me a bit crazy as instead of making the positions to get a run at a header he is often standing in the weirdest places when we have it wide. There have been some great headers from him but certainly not as many as I had expected from open play. To emphasise the point - he regularly wins the big punt from the keeper but far less so the cross into the box from open play. In watch him sometimes and have no idea what he is doing and others he is simply brilliant. I guess it is this which drove Klopp so crazy. If that could be unlocked he could be unplayable.

TBH I think it's too early to know where things will go. I don't think there is any reason not to believe that it won't work other than our natural cynicism.

I think it's just the evidence of what I've seen so far. We seem to be less inclined to take the full backs on and get crosses over. Last night both Van Aanholt and Schlupp regularly turned back and played a simple ball rather than being more direct and trying to get a ball into the box. It was clearly their instructions to do that, because we've seen enough of them to know it's not their instinct. At Liverpool we even took two short corners late in the game.

As I said though, I hope the tactics are adapted to bring out the best from Zaha, Townsend and Benteke.

If we're seriously looking at buying both Munir and Burke, we'll have three right wingers with Wilf obviously first choice. I realise Munir can play as CF, but wonder if Luciano Vietto would be the better option and just one of either Burke or Munir (preferably Munir if the price is right)? We still need an out and out striker for back up/competition for Benteke.

If the rejection is true I don't think it's a big loss. He might have good pedigree but the premier league is so much more physical than he is used to. I think it could take him a long time to get up to speed and we would be better off with Burke.

Well if Roma are looking to pay £30m+ for mahrez who will play in a similar role and want Munir on loan it would not be too outrageous to suggest if they want him it is a back up rather than a starter.

Barcelona forward Munir El Haddadi has rejected a potential move to Crystal Palace.

Sky Sports Italia revealed that the Spanish forward wants to join Roma instead. http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/transfers/transfer-news-live-updates-rumours-arsenal-liverpool-manchester-united-coutinho-chelsea-sanchez-a7907661.html

According to Diario Sport on twitter the talks are delayed while the Barcelona delegation are away negotiating the Dembele transfer and will resume as soon as they return.

No idea who Diario are but they have 1.4 million followers on twitter....

Would love to see them happen in this window. We couldn't close a door at the moment let alone get something like that over the line.
Benteke was a great signing - £86k a week for what Cabaye has contributed though is sore.

This guy sounds like he would fit the bill. But I have a feeling he'd be a flop. We are not a Barca or a Liverpool type team. Burke's strength and spirit would have been far more beneficial to us. He seemed a perfect fit for Palace. This guy screams tiki-taka. That won't suit Zaha or Benteke. Hope I am wrong on all fronts.

Burke would have been a great signing - but it's old news now so onto the next. Munir looks a bit lightweight from what I've seen of him but he has quality. Like so many players probably isn't worth the money - Woods For £15 million pound to Burnley say it all!

Wood could easily score as many than Benteke this year, good player- Half the price, just saying.

Munir is no way sufficient backup for a Benteke. If we want to save money and get someone who can play wide as well as cover Benteke then we should go for Jovetic who is reported to be available.

Don't think this one is happening given the player not being interested. I thought Burke was realistic this one not. Pulis has got his yala replacement we're left with **** all. I hope one of the other rumours turns out to be true.

Haha.. jovetic is quality.. he would not sit on our bench.

Munir is quality.. and would probably start behind Benteke as he can play in that number 10 role

Jovetic turned down Newcastle. He is at Inter and wanted by Sevilla and Marseille too. I somehow doubt he would ever come to us.

Saying that he is a terrific player and would walk into our team.
