Ive not really seen him much so I downloaded the Chelsea- Swansea game as I think thats the only start he's made.

From what I saw of him

A beast, very tall and strong, wiki has him listed at 6 ft 1⁄2" but he looked more like 6ft 4".

Very good at holding up the ball when played into his feet drops off the defenders to show for the ball and link up play, not so great when played into his chest, for his size he got robbed too many times

At times a bit like Cameron Jerome i.e looks awkward and a little uncoordinated, could have scored a hatrick but really messed up every chance he had.

Although Swansea play it on the floor, on the few occasions the ball was played long I didnt see him challenge once for a header although defended well on corners.

I wouldnt call him Lazy but he wasnt hard working either, seemed to stroll around the pitch a bit too much.

To sum up he's looked a bit like a bigger version of Cameron Jerome, very big and awkward to play against, caused chelsea alot of problems with his strength and size but poor finishing and could have worked a little harder imo

True.. But they won't have a striker who he bony has gone.. So unless they have someone lined up to replace him it won't happen IMO

To be honest having someone lined up isnt as unbelievable as is being made out. They know he has a release clause... they know at least one team is supposed to be sniffing around him... and they know this well in advance of the transfer window. Im assuming they have a capable scouting team at Swansea who probably have maintained a list of targets for years.

Also, accepting that he is behind Bony and getting into the first team would have been an enormous task, they might just think they could do better based on what they have seen. 7m profit before wages paid could be seen as plain good business.

For me its just far more unlikely that we would actually be able to agree personal terms with the guy if we did pursue him.

Which proven Premier League striker would you be looking to bring in during the January window? If somebody is consistently scoring goals at this level, is not like their team are going to be itching to get rid of them.

Based on minutes played he is currently at 1 goal every 1.8 games this season. Not great but not terrible considering he has only started 2 games it could be worse

According to the Daily Star(yes the Star!!) Gomis will sign on loan in January and make it perm in the summer when his 7m release clause can be activated, this ends our interest in Sangoo as only allowed 2 loans at any one time.

Swansea need Gomis in January, they are not going to loan him out, will never happen

1m quid plus loan fee. Sounds cheap. If we are to stay in the premier league we have to pay premier league wages. It's why we get 70m pa

I think this would be a game changing signing for us. He'd fit our style of play perfectly.
