Simple question: if we could sign one player in January to really transform our prospects, who would it be?
I’d like to propose that we keep our suggestions within the realms of the possible (so no Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi or Dennis Bergkamp please).
Do we prioritise a striker for our goal-shy attack?
A creative midfielder or Number 10 who can make the magic happen?
A defensive midfielder to let Partey roam forward?
A goalie who doesn’t make a habit of spilling the ball onto the feet of oncoming attackers?
Maybe you feel another defender is what we need.
Whatever you think, have your say in the comments below.
My preference would be for Jack Grealish, although his star is rising so fast and ours is falling so fast that I think such a deal barely scrapes into the ‘realms of the possible’.
If not Grealish, I would go for a big, fast, powerful centre forward. I can’t give you a name that fits the bill (although Olivier Giroud from five years ago would be perfect if you gloss over the ‘fast’ bit) but I have it on good authority from my friend RC78 that the Polish forward Arkadiusz Milik, who currently plays for Napoli, is the sort of man we need.
RC78 is a keen watcher of European football so if Milik is good enough for him, he’s good enough for me.
Over to you.
