I wonder if Villa will become desperate enough to meet our demands for Britt if they are indeed interested, They are signing Samatta but apparently also want Giroud but it looks like they could miss out on him to Inter.
Surely that would only happen if we were to offload Gestede. Or maybe Britt (though I'd much rathe have Britt than Gregory). But it would allow us to save some cash for summer. I'd happily offload Gestede and replace him with Gregory though if it meant saving some money.
I really don’t have a preference to who comes in but it’s obvious we need numbers and players into positions they fit. I fully support giving the younger academy players support and opportunity to prove themselves because I believe we should aim for a mobile youthful squad with pace. If we can get energetic players with energy to move as units then we can press higher up the field and still have pace at the back. The fact the game is turning into a non contact sport suggests mobility and pace are paramount.
We also need players who can hit a high percentage on target, which should be a prerequisite but we seem to struggle with.
