We need to buy a top striker

(Amongst other things before people say ‘what about a midfielder etc’)

Rashford always has goals in him but he’s not a striker per se. More like an inside forward. Martial for me just isn’t good enough and Greenwood is far too raw.

This summer we should try and bring in an older and more streetwise #9 to score the type of ugly goals that can get something out of games like these where we find ourselves still in it after 60/70 mins.

Candidates?

Dembele?
Cavani?
Werner? (Probably off to Bayern though)

Even someone like Giroud this window would do us a world of good (I know he’s not a top striker but probably the best bandaid we could get until we identify someone better)

Cavani on loan would be ideal. Not sure how possible it would be though

I know Ole says we won’t bring players in for short term, but we desperately need some numbers and if possible more quality. If we get a couple more in we really have a chance of top 4 - the other candidates are just as bad as we are

Should’ve gone for Zlatan!

No we shouldn’t.

More than ever we need to get this Fernandes deal over the line. And id also try for Cavani or someone else

Think all of our striker eggs were in the haaland basket judging by oles quotes.

Werner said he'd like to play in the prem

Makes the decision to not pay the money for Haaland look like another massive error

Greenwood is our only proper striker.

Nothing to do with money.

100% agree, and have posted articles saying so. A top striker papers over many cracks, you can't have too many.
I believe Greenwood to be a future star, but you can always give him games, and play a front two.
