I'm afraid this is a second-hand rumour and I can't provide a link.

My Dad is a Wednesday fan and he read today that Palace and Watford were both after Forestieri. Apparently he's had a training ground bust up and was left out at the weekend and with Wednesday being well-stocked with forwards my Dad reckons they're probably happy to sell.

From what I've seen of him he looks like a player that likes the ball to feet, so would probably fit the system.

I mentioned him as an option a few weeks back. Wouldn't mind this to be honest.

They got him from Watford did they not?

What kind of player is he? Midfielder/winger/forward?

Pact/Target man?

I know nowt about him.

Wonder if he could make the step up to the prem. Even if he can't he's still a better player than Lee, Sako and Lokilo.

Dougie Freedman type forward. Would ideally sit behind Benteke if we played a formation that allowed this.

However, it's questionable as to whether he could make the step up, and he also seems to have some attitude problems.

Best mate is a Wednesday fan. Very technically gifted player who can play across the front three but as the training ground just up would suggest he has attitude issues

Was he the guy who fouled Wilf for the penalty in the play off final?

He's likes a pen/dive this lad but a decent enough back up player at the right price.

Spends most of his time throwing himself to the ground. Watford are welcome to him.

He's a decent championship option. I doubt we are remotely interested. If we are then it's a sign of our lack of ambition.

He's always having bust ups. I'm surprised he's been there as long as he has.

Further comment from my Wednesday mate.

Could be up to it in the prem if he can sort his attitude out. He won't be any good for you as a striker...but as an inside forward who does not have to track back he could be quality.

Bust up is true - was chatting to a Wednesday fan yesterday. No mention of Palace being involved but he wants him out. Trouble causer.

Nowhere near premier league standard

Ha. Nonsense.

He's another Guediora. Sometimes looks useful but unlikely to ever be good enough, and will continue to get bombed from top flight teams, unless he's happy being in the 25 as no. 24 or 25.

Would be a terrific signing as he has that touch of class to his overall game which to me says he could make it in the premiership, and is capable of getting you 10 goals in my opinion. Yes he is Not a finished article but with the right players around him and say feeding off Benteke in a No.10 role could be exceptional, and probably could be bought at a reasonable fee.
He is not your lone striker type as we can see now or even when at Watford, so needs to feed of someone whether that type of player (2nd striker) is in FdB plans is another issue.

Always sounds like he gets the hump easily and wants to leave.

We can do better, I hope.

This does sound like one of those players that the papers link clubs to when their fans already feel downbeat about their chances this season - hence the replies about 'preparing for the championship' - we're only a game in.

I know I started this, but I can't see him coming our way either. All I've found since is that we were second favourites after Watford to sign him on Skybet, and we've seen enough of those runours.

That said, if he was a replacement for Campbell, with another striker replacing Remy, I would be happy. He would give us more from the bench than Ladapo anyway!
