In this instance, maybe Sakho has become only recently a possibility and his agent tells us he’d like to play for Palace. We say OK, we’re quite interested....what’s his medical history, how much does he want to come here, what’s the price?

There will then be a dance around as the two clubs, agent and player exchange opinions on this....which is when the story probably leaks out.

My guess would be, we were interested at a price that reflected his injury history. WHU don’t want to offload if they think our price is too low.

So we’ve gone from considering the player and it looking like a deal might be on the cards, to the two clubs both going cooler on the idea.

Nothing wrong with that. It might be worth a gamble on Sakho at a fair price, but if the price is too high then we should keep the cash back for a better prospect.
Also the scope of a transfer fee has increased greatly, there is more to debate with so much range, maybe ten years ago you were talking 3-15m, now its 5-30m for average to good players. Clubs are more likely to try an get asmuch as possible, and each additional millions pound gap between much offered and asked for slows it all down.

We've known since 1 September (but also before) where the gaps in the squad are. As a result, I would have thought we were going into this window with clear and agreed targets that we would be bidding for as soon as the window opened. Obviously things are not that simple and it's rarely ever easy but Huddersfield, for example, have already signed two good players. Burnley have got a decent winger in.

Obviously most activity will be later in the window but can it be a coincidence that during every window we are late to act? Let's hope Freedman's appointment sorts this and we'll be able to judge at the end of January I guess.
How do you know we are not making bids based on the research that has gone into the gaps in the squad?

Huddersfield have signed a Championship player, it's alot easier to force those moves through. We are looking from signings from other Premiership teams or Europe top leagues.

@SkyKaveh Diafra Sakho’s £10m move from West Ham to Crystal Palace in doubt. Not everyone at Palace convinced he’s striker they need

Really don’t know why I’m posting this as no one at Sky has a clue with transfers

I have to say, having seen Sakho at Brighton on Monday night, I don't think our need for a forward is as desperate as it once was.

In fact if Wickham is to be fit soon, we may not even need a centre forward.

The defender they just signed was from Monaco. Highly rated. He cost them 15m this summer from Feyenoord.

Anyway, I'm not saying we aren't doing that. Just speculating/passing the time

Indeed. Just ordinarily desperate now, not catastrophically desperate as it was last week and will be again as soon as Sakho (B) has a bad game/gets crocked.

In fact, if Wickham is fit I fell asleep and have woken up in 2023.

Why is it I am actually quite pleased to read this?

Must be something to do with his injury record and questionable attitude.

Disagree.

We really don't know how far off Wickham is from returning; and we simply cannot rely on Sakho as back up until the end of the season.

We need another forward and asap; as Benteke needs to know his place in the side is not a given.

We don't need another sicknote. I don't understand how we can spend half a year looking for strikers and the only thing we come up with is a substitute at West Ham who's more injured than healthy.

If true it would be interesting to know whom. Not the it matters but late cold feet implies we're not desperately joined up. That's kinda worrying.

Like Roy said in the press conference link us to as many players as possible keeps everyone guessing and agents on their toes.

Improves our bargaining position being linked to a lot of targets.

A lot of misinformation spread during the window.
