Trying to offload him? Maybe have a few of ours first and we'll let you know 😄

Yeah, him or Winnall need to come off our wage bill. Winnall would genuinely be a good signing in this division. Hasn't been given much of a chance for us due to the crazy amount of strikers we've had the last few seasons.

Worth considering, maybe Moses Odubajo.

Is 26, plays RB and just released by Brentford- their fans apparently dismayed/surprised ay his release if Twitter a useful gauge. 

Injury history my main concern there.

Some of the striker suggestions- unrealistic IMO. Adams would likely cost £15-20m, Maupay £20m, Reid could be a key player for Cardiff this coming season. Gayle on loan would be excellent, his goal Saturday very instinctive but a lot of competition so I wouldn't build up hopes hugely.

As for Cairney, wasn't aware he played for Nottingham Forest- Fulham isn't he? We won't be getting him either.

Have seen a fair bit of Odubajo this season as I take my Brentford-supporting daughter down there quite a lot (we live local). For me, he'd be a great addition to the squad, would give us cover across the backline and could easily press for the "number 1' number 2 spot.

Maupay would also be high on my list as would Romaine Sawyers in centre midfield.

No, he just don’t do it for me and no much better than we’ve got. Hasn’t had a good season since he was at Watford. 

Didn’t he win the Championship golden boot, or close to it, last season*..? 

* as in 2017/18

Vydra? 21 goals in 40 championship games for Derby in 2017/2018 - after he left Watford .... that ain’t a good season then?

Yeah, he's good I think. On a free, wouldn't be huge money and only 25? I'd have him here absolutely- think he'll make a shrewd signing for someone, hope it's us.

Maupay has 2 years left on deal- top player but I fear financially out of reach.

In fact, Brentford have made big profits in recent windows, I'd definitely be strongly thinking of keeping him as a no sale if I was them!

Sawyers is good. How long left what sort of price? Cheaper than Maupay would be I assume!

Okay, how about we take Jordan Rhodes on loan but loan him back to you (better value as Wednesday will be paying his wages regardless) and then to compensate you sell us Barry Bannan for a reasonable price (using the Matty Taylor release clause of £300k as a guide).

We'll sell you Nathan Baker as Steve Bruce is less likely to put up with his regular mid-match shenanigans and desire for an early bath. You can also have Jack Hunt back as we prefer to play literally anyone at right back as long as they're not a right back. And we'll have Forestieri.

Reasonable?

2 players to replace pato boy you sure must rate him!

Can't just rely on having one attacking midfielder. Strength in depth an all that. Pato is just a liability and is on holiday for 3/4 of a season. Needs to go IMO

So would Rhodes. Decent when called upon at Norwich, unfortunate Pukki turned out to be as good as he was.

From midfield as well ::laugh::

I'd love Pearson from Preston. 

We've lacked bite in midfield for years, he'd give us exactly that. I know his disciplinary record isn't great, 29 yellows and 4 reds in the last 2 seasons 😂 but I still think he's an excellent player. 

David Button from Brighton would be a good GK to get in also. Good on the ball whenever I watched him play for Fulham.

Some good and realistic suggestions on here.

If we got the likes of Kalas, DaSilva, Odubajo, Kane (Herbie), Reid and Vydra I'd be over the f*****g moon as would most city fans I believe, not to mention serious contenders next season.

Sort of attacking midfield sort of, striker, bit wider at times- one of those who can and does drift. Great movement- few assists too I believe.

Bit surprised nobody has mentioned it on this thread, but Nick Powell on a free?

He's quite creative, knows where the goal is- 25 years old. Plus unlike Paterson- who I think can be very good, incidentally- he also has the tactical flexibility, versatility to drop back into CM more easily than him. He can shuttle back and forth more readily IMO, which has to be a good thing- in some phases up behind the striker, in others helping to either press to regain or clog up to retain the ball.

Daniel Johnson - PNE

Britt Assombalonga - Forest (I know we've 'tried' before but genuinely think he would be lethal up top with Fam)

Jay Dasilva - Chelsea

Tomas Kalas - Chelsea

Daniel Bentley - Brentford

Tendayi Darikwa - Forest

Tongue in cheek a bit but Jonson Clarke-Harris if only to annoy the blue few. At over 6’, 24 years of age and settled in Bristol he looks no worse a bet than last Mo Eisa. 

And he`s probably got a release clause of about seven pound fifty.
