    My brother is a big Cherries fan and says King is their best player. He is fast, direct and has an eye for goal and would definitely bolster our attacking options. He is PL tested and would be minimal risk. Get him in .

    He had a decent season last year when he scored 16 goals, however over all is record in England is 28 goals in 159 games. ( and as i say 16 of them was last season).

    That is not say that he will not step up and do it again.

    If he does it again I am guessing he will be out of our spending league. I like Andre Grey at Burnley, think he will do well under Poch he has a hard work rate and a decent shot. Good back up to Kane if Janssen leaves.

    He has massively overperformed for six months. Will go back to being average soon enough.

    I've watched since he was a kid and was snatched by United. He's always been good, but his finishing has let him down. The last couple of seasons he has adressed that with intensive training. He's much more relaxed in front of goal now. He'd be a good addition. Can play as a winger too.

    Indeed. A decent player when in form, but he usually doesn't stay in form for too long. Also has a bit of an arrogant attitude, comes across as a bit of a dingdong in the interviews I've seen of him. Seems like working with Howe has made him more consistent though. We'll see next season, I might have to eat my words.

    I like him and think he has learned in the job. He actually seems to me to have a decent attitude too which is significant for us

    Had an excellent season in an average team. Would certainly welcome him at the Lane.

    Maybe, however i would rather we gave Janssen more time to settle and he will only get that with more games. If we bring King in that may ration his chances and to be honest i do not think King is that good. But it dépends on what Poch see's/thinks.

    I'm not saying King is, but if he's an instant upgrade on Janssen, why should we persist with Janssen? King is strong as an ox, has pace, is good in the air, works hard for the team, and can play on the wing. I'd welcome him in the team. He won't be a starter, but atm I belive he's a better player overall than Janssen.

    Well Stop! Hammer time, but personally i have seen enough overall in Janssens game to think/believe that he will come good here, and he is a couple of years younger then King. As i have said it will be Poch who will make the decision.

    One of the few Norwegian players we've been linked with over the years I wouldn't mind us signing.

    All depends on if he's actually stepped up a level with his finishing recently or if he's just on a hot streak. Not sure what the answer is to that.

    Will he be better than Janssen a year from now or two years from now is just as relevant.

    He's the only Norwegian player in recent years that's not completely brick!

    People seem to miss the fact that this "kid" is older than Eriksen, not sure I'd be betting on him suddenly becoming something special, VJ is two years younger and has at least a prolific season at a top level behind him.

    I'd rather we keep Janssen,unless we get an absolute worldie I doubt he's going to be replaced....

    Not convinced he's going to become special either, as such it might not be the best use of our developmental resources so to speak.

    He's PL proven though, proven under Howe who has a similar philosophy to Poch and quite versatile. At his best he's a real player and if we can get him to perform at that level regularly I think he could be useful.

    Not an obvious "sign him!" player at all though.
    Would be as another option I would have thought. Can play wide, can play in a partnership with Kane or Janssen. Would give us another quite pacey option.

    This is a dilemma which we face at the moment - there's been plenty of players who have moved in the last year or two who have had one decent season and moved for chunky prices...however then one more good season and they're out of our league
