Also, apparently he's very good on the right of a front three.

Reading fans: "Please sign a striker! Sign anyone ffs!"
Also Reading fans: "Not that one"

flicked through the wolves forum - apparently they are being strongly linked to Oliveira now.

small sample but they seemed slightly upset to be losing JDB and very meh on signing Nelson interestingly.

He can do all that and if he was prolific as well he'd be at Manchester City.

Our goals in this system tend to come from all over the pitch. so Fe he may suit us nicely.

Is it? Haven't we already got that in Mendes and Kermorgant? Don't we need someone different like A prime Michael Owen?

I highly doubt we'll only be signing one striker. There's still plenty of time to splash some cash.

this chap sounds similar to Mendes to me. I wonder if Jaap is losing a bit of patience with his injury record

It feels somewhat underwhelming but I trust Jaap and Brian.

Obviously losing Grabban, Rakels, Samuel and then Kermorgant out for the start of the season means we need more than one new striker. He's Icelandic, fairly young, and can step into Yann's shoes as our target man once he retires. Bit of Championship experience will be useful too.

I think Stam is getting rid of last years squad fillers and replacing them with better quality squad fillers now that we have more cash. He is building a stronger all round squad.

Is this guy good enough to get us up? probably not but is he better than the likes of Meite, Mendes and Denis? - probably.

Add 3 or 4 first team starters alongside this lot throughout the window and we will be in a better pace.

Hmm interesting one, not an entirely unexpected target I guess. The kind of player that fits our model and with Stam not being too fussed on the central striker role I can see his interest. Would be a decent squad option,probably better than popa/berens who could be looking over their shoulder. I like Harriot and would persevere over one of those 2. Whatever happens we surely need one more striker in the traditional sense, as much as Kermie has impressed you can't expect him to fulfill that role week in week out now.

Fits the Reading mould for a striker I suppose, i.e. barely scores any goals and everyone is just :| about it

Have to say that he should fit in with the style Stam wants though and as long as the team performs well overall there's not much more you can ask for.

On the plus side he's got a good song

On the downside he'll probably won't score enough for us to sing it

Oh FFS what great ambition this signing is. Do we genuinely care about trying to get promoted this season or settle for mid table mediocrity?
