All these Petagna/Destro jokes are a return to a time when Pajo, JJM and Lionheart frequented the forum.

Where are they now?

De Vrij, Handa
Boniface would probably already cost 50 odd million. No chance

Never scored more than 10 league goals till this year and he’s 27…
What kind of a player do you expect as a backup? Inter current backup is Arnautovic who hadn't scored more than 10 league goals in a season till he joined Bologna at 32.

Guirassy has a 20m release clause. If you want him you have to act fast.

What's happening in Germany that some random players keep scoring some insane amount of goals in a short period from time to time?

Pretty sure Arnautovic did it at least once with some of Twente, Stoke, West Ham and Bremen.

My point is we’d be buying a player at the top of his market price, which is inflated by form he’s never shown before in a new attacking system. They’re going to want starter money for a guy with no proven track record. If we can afford what they’re going to want for him I think we can find a more proven striker, even if they’re a bit older. Taremi for example is still available.

I don't know if Taremi can be considered proven considering he has only played in Portugal.

And the champions league. And international competition.

The point is it would be better to gamble on someone like him who is at least prolific historically.
