Whilst the signing of a striker between now and next Thursday feel pretty essential, it’s probably a relief to hear this is not a player we’re in for.
Thelin can’t even get in Anderlecht’s team – having been loaned out to a fellow Belgian side last season – and has rarely been prolific despite playing in some of the weaker European leagues throughout his career.
Where we go next remains to be seen, but with Rafa not knowing his budget, having ‘no idea’ on new signings and Rondon’s release clause said to have now expired, it’s looking pretty bleak.
7 days to go to salvage our summer.
