    It's a bit like a slightly less sexy "CAVANI and KJAER DOUBLE SWOOOP IMPENDING ACCORDING TO NAPOLI PRESIDENT" after that world cup...

    But having said that both moves make sense* if a good deal could be worked out, maybe they'd even take a couple of younger players ready for a lot of games in the championship.

    *My only worry is if Wilson's injury problems caught up with him a bit this season but fingers crossed he'd come back fighting fit + it's not like we'd be initially desperate for him so he'd have time for a proper pre season.

    Edit - Also just to say, Brooks seems like a cracking prospect, would love to see if he'd step it up alongside a realistically higher level calibre of player around him.

    Wilson is apparently on £110k a week. So that would seem a lot for us to spend on a backup striker.

    We were probably paying Llorente something not too far off of that.

    We were paying him more. And that’s not a good investment, post stadium, and in covid world.

    Josh King is on less and is available, and is less injury prone. Troy Deeney also an option.

    Ottawa, actually.
    Fixed. I remember that glorious rumor - after qualifying for the CL, it made for a great few weeks of dreaming. At the time, Cavani wasn't a striker - sort of an aggressive, high-pressing right winger. Which was, to my eyes, perfect for what we needed - and Kjaer was exactly the sort of centre-back we could have used.

    We never did get either, of course. But it was good to dream for a while.

    Yeah, just heard that. Shame. Reckon he’d have been awesome to throw on against arsenal!

    Not really, as there always a West Ham around stupid enough to pay it and “get bragging rights over Tottenham”!

    Let's see. I'm sure that'll be the approach that Levy takes, if we're interested

    It’ll need to be reduced fee (based on his knees if nothing else!) and then he’ll need to accept less Per week as well.

    I can’t see us paying £110k+, for a back up player. The knock on effect to the rest of the squad would cause issues.

    I know the game is all about having a squad but Brooks is a similar player to Dele. Well, a similar player to what Dele has become. Not the Dele that used to play up higher and make a mockery of the numbers Mason Mount is being praised for this season.

    Slight tangent there but as with Eze, the Brooks area of the pitch is seemingly less of a priority.

    David Brooks please. Local boy for us in Warrington. Went to the school my wife works at, she told him a few years back he should sign for Spurs when he gets older. I think he would do well for us

    I'm not sure I see that. Brooks to me is more like James Madison or Jack Grealish than Dele - more of a dribbler. Agree though that its a lower priority area, unless we ship some out like Lamela

    Getting Brooks in for Lamela alongside some kind of CF backup / option would put us in a really strong place attacking wise, a lot of different ways to shape up given GLC and Dele's flexibility.

    I think Brooks' future lies in sort of no 10 role similar to a certain Dane not so long gone but he's also happy cutting in from that right side too. I guess it's down to whether Jose likes him and whether we can figure out a deal as always..
