  1. Hardly prolific! !

  2. I’m not familiar with the player, but he sounds like he would be a good fit.

  3. Doesn’t excite me. Didn’t work in Italy, 1 in 3 in Spain on loan. Good age but I wouldn’t pay big money for him.

    What about Moussa Dembele at Lyon? Nearly 1 in 2 in Scotland, got his move to Lyon in Ligue 1 and similar ratio again – 15 in 32 is pretty good, knows the English game, scored 15 in the Championship for Fulham when he was very young. Just 18 I think.

  4. Andre is a quality player with bags of potential who needs a club to settle at. Pellegrini would be exactly the right manager to get the best from him. If Belottis is a series target he is a better player at the moment. If Gomez and Belotti dont happen this guy would be very useful for us and could grow to be a top striker. Very technical with strength.

  5. 1 goal in 5 doesn’t suggest a £27m pound player does it ?

  6. This is getting silly. Let’s buy them all…….Gomez, Belotti, Rondon and this Silva!! We’re letting Arnie and Chicharito go with Perez, Carroll, Hugill and Martinez. Makes perfect sense. to me. LOL
