Who would be the right striker for us to target?

It's been no secret that we have struggled to find the right strikers to hit it off with us for some years now and whilst I accept it is the most difficult market - even more so in January - who should we be targetting?

Wickham, Sorloth and Benteke are all a similar type of player. Ayew hasn't set the World alight but where he is playing is not his preferred role I understand.

Are we looking for a target man? a poacher? a creative forward? a speed merchant?

Assuming we won't be changing the way we fundamentally play what type of player will work best with what we have?

Do we want someone we can play alongside Wilf up top? A lone striker?

We first need to define what our style of play is going to be and then get a player in that suits that.

Anyone we target in January will be unwanted at their present club, over priced or an unknown quantity from overseas...probably all three.

Danny Welbeck would be perfect for us but he seems like a player who’s just happy to be at a big club

I'd love Danny Welbeck, but I don't think striker is the big problem people think it is. We have missed Benteke for his aerial presence, and Wickham coming back will be huge. But the biggest thing for me is giving Wilf the licence to have a free role up front, allowing him to pop up on the wing but also in the middle.

However to have Wilf up front it will mean we need to sign an attacking mid/winger. Someone like RLC or Antonio is what the club really needs. Problem is Wilf is needed wide midfield at the moment (where he is less effective) because we have no-one else to carry us up the pitch. My only hope is Ayew.

Need to try and get our players to understand that they need to get close and support the CFs we have first.

Aguero or Kane would struggle to get goals in our team at the moment

Someone who can run the channels but also come deep, it doesn’t take a speed merchant or a weight lifter but Ayew puts in a lot of effort but doesn’t hold the ball up, Benteke doesn’t run the channels.

If someone came in and got 7 goals we would be way better off than we are now, is is that hard to find? Apparently so...

They do seem to be like finding gold dust these days. I guess a relevant question is who are the best strikers outside the top 6 and where did they come from?

If you had asked the question, and i was allowed to dream, before we got CB,I'd have said CB! maybe we need a bit of slightly fading brilliance, an ageing but experienced striker that could mentor the others...Crouchy??, Defoe?? I still believe in CB by the way, if we can just get into his head and make him believe again!

A veteran work horse like Crouch or Nugent for experience of perhaps Eddie Nkietiah, a young gooner prospect on loan

Someone with a brain who has pace and good movement - we haven't got a striker who fits that description. A clone of AJ would be nice.

Assuming Benteke does not progress and will be moved on creates one vacancy, but who will buy him is the important question as we need those funds for a replacement. Ideally if Wickham regains full fitness and can be a regular starter that certainly solves the "big" striker issue, however we all know that is just a dream as he teds to be an injury waiting to happen at anytime, but lets look on the positive side and hope he is back.
As for Sorloth without doubt he Must be loaned out to get him up a level as currently its clear to see he lacks what is needed, in his defence has never had the chance to adapt nor develop to our system, but i have serious doubts about him ever making it at premiership level. That leaves Ayew, we need to accept before judging his ability that he is Not a leader of the line, if we are to see the best of him in my opinion will be when he is played wide left in a Front Three, but i see him returned to Swansea.
That will leave us with the need for THREE Strikers, do i see us bringing ALL of those in? No, will we put 40m into the kitty for a 2/3 of the strikers? probably Not, but it is what we need to do if we are to move the club forward.
Who would i like to see join to replace, the Three that come to mind currently are (1) Danny Welbeck would be excellent to lead the line, he is a player with a great work ethic and can score goals. (2) Next would be Jonathan Kodjer at Villa, we know he blows hot and cold but has blistering pace scores goals and works hard, and with the turmoil at Villa could be had at a decent fee. And the other striker that is a different type, a nippy smaller type that can play off a big striker if need be again someone who scores goals, that guy is Maupay at Brentford, and if we add Connor Wickham to them it makes a decent quartet and everyone capable of scoring goals, which is a rarity these days for a Palace striker.
