We should be interested, he would get in in front of Howson and McNair who are ok but lack pace and bite in the midfield. When they had a decent spell , it was because they were winning the midfield battle and Howson and McNair were struggling.
Longstaff and Morsy would be good, I would prefer us to buy Ali McCann from St Johnstone and Lewis Ferguson from Aberdeen and Callum Ohare from Coventry if we had the funds, but doubt we have.
I will put it another way ,Would prefer Howson and McNair to Longstaff and Morsy to be honest. Sounds awful
I will put it another way ,
Longstaff would provide quality competition for the other 3 , giving us 4 good options for 2 places. It would also let both Howson and McNair to be cover at RB and CH.
I would take Gayle, and also Keinan Davis ( to rotate with Uche ) and Ellis Simms to rotate with Crooks . Similar players , so they would be like for like alternatives .Gayle would be my choice right now but we’d still need to sign a striker in a yr as he’s clearly nit a premier first teaser .
If we signed one of the other more speculative strikers this is a great league to test them in and based on form could well do a job in the premier league .
