Apparently Juventus went in for Neto last summer, the deal didn't go ahead because they wanted most of the fee to be based on incentives, but shows the level of club that will be interested in him, and he's improved even more this season. Along with Saka and Foden he's arguably been the best young player in the league.

Yes probably unlikely as things stand (we'd have more chance with europa) but eventually to be the best club we want to be we need to start going to similar standing clubs in the league and sign their better players so looking forward to whichever summer that will be.

Was fairly mediocre in Serie A so just a case of taking a step back in his career in short term and it's paid off massively.

Same

No way is Tammy an automatic starter for us when we have Ollie 

Yes but lets be real as much as we love ollie he has numerous poor games for us. 

We need someone that can compete with ollie and i  elieve tammy would be that man. Also i do believe they could play in same team

I agree.

I think both challenging for each other's spot would be a good thing..

Even our manager has recently stated he is not afraid to change systems or formations.

There could be a scenario where maybe Tammy and Ollie both play up front together.

Exactly. I mean ollies good and will get better but we cant be scared to look at players who as good as or better than him.

This only way we will get better.

Last thing we need is relying on individuals like we do grealish when he is injured. Having tammy and ollie as attackers man that would be awesome and take us to another level

We have three strikers

Ollie

One who has had a very serious injury and have no idea what he will be like

And Davis who hasnt scored in 2 years for us 😂

Agreed, if we go into next season like this we can’t expect further advancement

Of course but we wont be splashing out on a big price striker since we spent the last 2 seasons signing big priced players. Especially when other areas are a big issue. Can imagine us picking up a 10-15 million striker

People saying ‘why would you shift Watkins wider to accommodate Tammy when Watkins is so good up front’ is by a logical extension like saying ‘why would you shift Sterling wide to accommodate Kane when Sterling is so good up front’... obviously it’s because those suggesting it think the whole can be greater than the sum of the parts that way. I LIKE having wide forwards as opposed to wingers in the modern game, or at least having the option of it. Someone else might prefer a traditional winger wide and Ollie central and that’s totally ok, but it’s hardly an insane thing people are suggesting - both would likely start 30-35 games.

I don’t think we will be signing Tammy though so not sure why I’m wading in other than to say a player having positional flexibility is not necessarily square pegs in round holes.

Not sure I agree.  Creativity and scoring are our two big areas of weakness.  Solving one we will still have the other.  CAM and RW are key but only having Ollie really upfront leaves us very exposed in the striking position.  Wes, we don’t know and Davis probably won’t be here and/or not enough, so we need another top notch striker.
