What are your thoughts of signing Edin Dzeko on a 1+1 (optional) yr deal.
He's already played in the PL for Man City.
His scoring looks very decent to me.
He's tall, and we seem to be linked with similar players like sasa or Sesko.
Inter signed Lukaku and they need so they would look to move Dzeko on.
He's 36, so time isn't on his side, could be a 200k/ week player.
But he's a proven goalscorer.
If Ronaldo leaves, he can be a starter, if Ronaldo stays he's our backup.
What are your thoughts? I personally don't think any good striker is available for the right price currently. A quick fix especially when we don't have a huge budget is something we should really look at.

I’d rather pay for Antony or Sesko and build for the future instead of these stop gap signings. Doubt Dzeko would want to join us anyway with his City connection. In fact I’d rather have Martial/ Rash until the right player comes along. Interstate Garnacho then too.

WRD even if you get Antony or Sesko, we are still short. Really short.
For the front 3 you need atleast 6 players. All we have is Sancho, Martial and Rashford as certainties.
Ronaldo is the 4th which nobody knows what's going to happen with, I think he will get his way and leave.

Garnacho, Pellestri, Elanga and Amad, some may go on loan, they are kids and none of them are proven goalscorers.
Ideally we need 3 forwards (2 if Ronaldo stays) and I think we ain't getting that many.

Surely we would just keep Ronaldo then?

It (as would any similar deal) would stink of previous seasons, ie not being able to sign who we wanted with five minutes left in the window then grabbing a short-term fix at the death with everyone walking around high-fiving with grins on their faces.
Saying that, I always liked vintage Dzeko, decent player.

I have lost hope on us doing a decent deal in the window.
He looks like the cheapest and best striker we could get who would settle instantly.
Inter have to sell.
The selling point for me is we are looking at very similar strikers like him.
Ronaldo staying or not is very uncertain.

Alexis Sanchez is now available on a free. Shall we sign him too?

01 Aug 2022 21:54:13
TBF he was handy on the piano.

No, he left City 3-4 years ago because he couldn't handle the pace of the EPL anymore. Went to probably the slowest league in Europe and prolonged his career.

Also we need to get away from this short term older striker signings. Owen, Falcao, Zlatan, Cavani, Ronaldo. All came to the club in either in their late 20's having had serious injury issues or in their mid thirties.

At best we have had 3 good season's from those 5 strikers out of the 9 season's they have played, and been paid handsomely, for the club.

Time to stop looking short term and look for a striker who can be a part of a winning side for 5-7 years.
