Whether the Belgium lump stays or not, a striker has been needed for quite a while as we all know. Dominic Calvert-Lewin is now fit, so surely, seeing as we bought him and he has already been picked (the game he was injured), he should be ahead of Valencia on the bench or even start. Only 20 years old, he might surprise us.
I also reckon someone is gonna pick Chris Woods up, the Kiwi playing for Leeds who is on 25 goals (3 were in the EFL Cup). He scores all kinds and yeah, yeah, it's the Championship blah blah, but have a look on YouTube. He knocks them in from outside the box and great with his head.
He is a strapping 6ft-3in and I would be happy if we snapped him up. He is 25 and I wonder what he will go for? £20 mill would be reasonable. But what do I know...

I think it means we have to show intent with a replacement i.e. a big money move £30/40m – The lad at Lyon, Lacazette, or someone of similar stature perhaps the young lad at Chelsea Michy Batshuyi? I think losing Rom would be one thing but if we do it need to be a real name to replace him.

The Championship is a decent competition so his 22 goals in 34 games (plus respectable 13 goals last season) are not to be sniffed at.
He is a good age and seems to be in a rich vein of form. Think he is a decent team player too, judging from his obligatory youtube montages.
As an antipodean I expect him to be brimming with the self-confidence all good strikers need (insert Rom comment here).

Worth a shout for me but as a fellow Dutchman, you'd think Koeman would be aware of him, so probably doesn't rate him.
His record is pretty good though.

Moshiri has to up the wage bill because there is no incentive for any decent player to join us, sadly.
