Boro in “advanced talks” with Diedhiou

Then that type of player should create opportunity for others around him
exactly. You only get about 3 players a season who are 20 goals a season and usually at least one promoted team did not have a 20 goal striker. The best teams share the goals around and have strikers who can create and hold the ball up so that midfield can get up the pitch and join in.

4 20 goal strikers this year - Toney, Pukki, Armstrong, and Moore. Two or three of those strikers will not be promoted.
last season Mitrovic, Watson and Grabban all got 20 goals but only Mitrovic got promoted.
Season before, there were nine 20 goal strikers, six didn't get promoted

15/16 we were promoted with a top goalscorer of 8 goals.

We need to increase goals across the team, we've had
CB - 5 goals - need to double this next year, if we play 3 CBs they need 10 between them
FB - 2 goals - I expect assists rather than goals from FBs, but in a wingback formation, I would expect more than 2 goals.
CM - 13 goals, not too bad
wingers & 10 - 15 goals - for 3 attacking roles, that isn't enough
CF - 16 goals (4 of Watmores as a CF) - with 1 CF it depends on the type of forward and balance of wingers / 10. 29 in total from those 4 positions is way down on what it needs to be, we need to find another 10 goals across those 4 positions, somehow.

I actually wanted us to sign him the first time around, but it does seem like we dodged a bullet.


There's also this guy, who I'll honestly say I'd not even heard of despite him being a mainstay in Blackburn's side.
He'd be our first Namibian player, if we did sign him.
Nyambe is a decent player still young, really athletic. I wanted us to go for him in January, but we went for Fisher, so I would be surprised if this is true.

Famara Diédhiou is 1 of the 11 players released at Bristol City. If you do sign him then you’ll not see him play in January for a month due African Nations Cup.

But I think Diédhiou will go to Fulham because Aleksandar Mitrović will leave Fulham and Maja going back to FC Girondins Bordeaux hence why I think Fulham could be the one to sign Diédhiou though.

Maybe, it's just a case of the player deciding he if wants to make the move up north I guess. Josh Maja would be a canny signing!

I'm not convinced Diedhiou is the type of forward Fulham would be intersted in - this is why Mitrovic hasnt played that much, due to their system and style.

Unless Scott Parker decides on a charge of approach of course!

Diedhiou's goals scoring record is very similar to Assombalonga. I know he is physically bigger and he can maybe help other players by saying winning aerial challenges and holding the ball up more. I too would be surprised if Fulham bought him.
