Again, I'd like to re-iterate:

Defoe and Benteke up front together would kill us. It'd be like defending with 8 outfield players. We'd have 25% possession every game! It annoys me enough that Benteke won't press. To add Defoe, who is also not high energy, would be wrong for our blend.

For me this all depends on whether he is willing to come and not start every game. Benteke suits our style more and as dangerous as a Benteke/Defoe partnership might be I don't see us playing 4-4-2 every week.

BFS will go for height in Midfield and 5 at the Back Defoe will not be coming to us.

We need to be able to change systems as at the moment we are a bit one dimensional. Defoe would enable us to go 4-4-2 at home in games like the Burnley one where teams sit back and ask us to attack them and we can't do it. Defoe is a superb finisher too. Some madness on this thread when you consider he has scored 18 and 16 goals in the last two years in a woeful Sunderland team. Imagine what he could do alongside Benteke, Zaha and Townsend...

BFS wont play 4-4-2 he will have Zaha , Cabaye, Townsend play off Benteke, and a tall midfielder.

That still does very little to help us beat the teams at home that just defend - e.g. Burnley. We can't break teams down playing on the counter that way.

He would be a great option off the bench and excellent cover. However I don't see him as a priority. So yes if the price is right.

But the chances a fair play rule busting Bournemouth will or a desperate other will pay him something stupid are high.

He is proven quality however and if I were him I too would be looking for a final pay day and move away from wearside.

Of course, just because he apparently wants a 6m signing-on fee, doesn't mean there's any clubs willing to pay it.
Thanks for that

Why assess his value or impact to CP purely as a first team starter ?
If Defoe came it would surely be as a squad member, with occasional starts but generally coming off the bench when required to chase. And a big upgrade on Remy or Campbell.
