No idea what he looks like across 90 mins but in his highlights he certainly sticks it in the net impressively. Like Sanogo he is amongst rare company in that he is a big guy that actually jumps as well which makes him almost unplayable in some situations.

He's developed into an outstanding player at that level. Can he do it in the Prem? I'll defer judgement on that to our scouting network. Given our system, however, he'd have a decent shot if Bolasie and Punch can zip fast, accurate crosses into the box. (Although that does seem a sizeable 'if'!)

Amazing what confidence and game time can do. A bit like when we signed some kid called AJ from Birmingham...

I have seen him a few times, and I just don't think he has the quality to play in this league.

Luckily, there's other options ahead of him.

Saw him play recently, good physical attributes and ability but poor decision-making.

'Three good months' and 'barely good enough for the Championship', though? Really?

He's only scored once since that point.

So, it is still 3, maybe 4 good months at that level.

How did that work out with Gayle, 18 months later...

Someone will overpay for him, I hope that isn't us.

£2.5-3m is a risk we could take, but is he even better than Sanogo? Who he would be competing with for a spot. Neither are proven, we cannot take that risk.

He gets on well with Scott Dann so there is that I suppose.

And for comparison purposes.

Cameron Jerome is scoring a goal every 135 minutes of a league game for Norwich.
Gestede is scoring a goal every 145 minutes.
Murray was scoring every 189 at Reading.

Whilst initially I was for this player and started the thread we've gone for Sanogo and surely they are similar players, similar stature, similar attributes.

I think we either go buy someone really top notch or just call it a day up front and be happy with what we have - not sure I see the benefit of adding another so so striker with potential.

I guess ti also very much depends on the deal with Sanogo as if there is 0 chance of signign him permanently at the end of the season we will still need that type of striker.

24 goals in 44 games for the calendar year of 2014.

Sorry, that is significantly more than 'maybe 4 good months'.
