Antoine Semenyo signs for Bournemouth

Probably worth it’s own thread as it’s come from a reputable journalist rather than just a Twitter rumour floating about.

Crystal Palace are considering a bid for #BristolCity striker Antoine Semenyo, who could leave before Tuesday's transfer deadline. Bournemouth had offers of £8m and £10m rejected last week. #cpfc

I see him as an Ayew replacement as someone who can play wide or through the middle so anything above £8m doesn't seem like a good buy to me.

Palace and So'ton join race for Semenyo

Crystal Palace and Southampton have joined Bournemouth and Burnley with interest in Bristol City striker Antoine Semenyo.

Bournemouth, who had a £10m bid rejected last week, are still understood to remain the favourites.

But Palace are keen and, although he is predominantly a centre-forward, he can play anywhere across the front-line.

Two of Palace’s current forwards, Wilfried Zaha and Jordan Ayew, are both out of contract in the summer.

Southampton have also been looking for a striker but missed out on targets the likes of Danny Ings, who joined West Ham, and Arnaut Danjuma, who is set to sign for Tottenham.

Burnley preferably want to sign Semenyo in the summer if the current Championship leaders are promoted back to the Premier League.

The 23-year-old is a Ghana international who has scored 20 goals and set up 22 more in 124 appearances for Bristol City. He has 18 months left on his contract at Ashton Gate.

I just think winger is the last place we need to buy right now. We have Olise, Eze, Wilf, JRS, JKG, Ayew, Ebiowie.

There are far more important positions to strengthen.

3 of those are on loan.

I'm aware of that, and they've been let out on loan because we have more wingers than we have of anything else.

BCFC have been playing Semenyo as a winger, his goal return isn't great either.

I think, and I could be wrong, but we view him as a forward.

I read he started out wide for Bristol City but has been used more centrally now. At 22 years old he continues to fit the model.

Yeah, they've been using Conway as the striker.

They’ve played 3-5-2 a lot this season with Conway, Semenyo ans Nakhi Wells as the strikers.

He's played centrally less often than last this season but he has some time there.

Think there's a good chance he leaves this window but where to (if he does) is another question.

Has found goal scoring form again recently.

I'm still not sure about about him either way.

Bristol City have lost over £60m in the past two financial years and have debts around £32m. Over and above covid they say that a decline in profit from player sales is driving that, so there clearly is some pressure to move some assets - Semenyo and Scott seem the highest rated at the moment. They are also lurking towards the bottom of the Championship ad it would probably be a huge financial kick if they went down.

You would expect them to move one of their assets this window.

I liked the last winger/forward we bought from Brizzle.

Exactly. They need to sell someone.

You'd think Conway would be next in line but maybe a year or two away.

I doubt he'd be worth much yet, decent season though.

Massengo surely must be worth a million quid bid.

Since the turn of the year hasn't he been playing as a left-winger? Maybe being seen as a long-term replacement for Wilf?

I thought we already had the cream of the crop of the non scoring Ghanaian strikers.

Let's go for some goal scorers for a change.

I must confess to never seeing him play a game. My takeaways watching highlights are that a lot of his finishes are hard, low and in the corner which is promising. His pace and direct style could be very useful in a team that wishes to press more and perhaps at times is guilty of trying to create chances with too much flair and flicks.

His age profile is good and would probably be ready to start in the PL after a number of seasons in the Championship.
