Tim Steidten’s Kudus/Alvares signings paint an exciting  picture.

It’s not without significance that both were brought into the club by the technical director Tim Steidten and at an incredibly cheap cost on current standards .

Kudus in particular is a truly exciting addition and is able to play across the front line which given Jarrod Bowen being required as a centre forward is truly advantageous right mow.

We understand that he and Alvarez were very much Steidten window choices whilst set piece specialist James Ward-Prowse was top of the David Moyes priority list.

The former Southampton skipper started superbly with 11 assists in eight games but these have dried up over recent weeks whilst Kudus has scored six so far this season including   with two magnificent assists from open play at Burnley along with Sunday’s goal against Palace.

Alvarez, meanwhile, has been a more than adequate replacement for Declan Rice although he does have an unfortunate habit of picking up unnecessary yellow cards. To have picked the pair of them up for £75 million was extraordinary business.

With a striker now a serious proposition this winter but with the emphasis on British players given the squad shortage on home grown players let’s hope Tim knows his UK raised players as well as he does those abroad.

  1. With regards to a Striker and homegrown I am sure Chelsea’s Broja is classed as Homegrown so might not be a bad option if we actually have any money. We may have to look more at the homegrown market if we do let Antonio, Johnson and Cresswell leave as that would really bring down our quota.
