I think fees have gone crazy in the last few years anyway, Watkins fee including add ons will be around 33m for a player who had never played in the Premier league. Uf he's the player the manager wants and we can afford him then I say get him.
Now let's get another attacker and complete the trio behind Ollie.
Brilliant signing if it happens for the fact I love seeing us buying up and coming top talent from the league below. I haven’t seen Buendia play that much compared to some on here, and I’ve been sold one too many YouTube comps to take them too much for granted, but his stats and videos really standout.
For me, there’s a significant gulf between the championship and prem, but it doesn’t mean players can’t step up - it’s just you need more athleticism as someone else mentioned earlier, and composure as you have less games and less chances per game, so you need to make it count.
For me, I’d be quite happy if he was the marquee signing of the summer, I wouldn’t be disappointed at all (except we need a few more ideally).
If they replaced him with Pereira and a couple other starters then that could be good business for them, but it'd be like us cashing in on Jack when we got promoted, so you can see why they're spitting feathers.
