He'd like a loan to get playing time ahead of Euro 2020, but from our point of view a loan's a bit pointless. Probably the only benefit would be off-setting his wages for a few months.Tosun, he might get a loan, like Niase did when he went to Cardiff, but I'd rather we actually played him.
Tall, quick, powerful, disciplined staying out wide, good crosser, and most importantly... a bloody left-footer.He’s actually quite good from what I’ve seen. Won’t be available in January but I’d be on board in the summer assuming we continue with the approach you mention. He’d add more youth too.
Didn't stop them from giving Liverpool back literally all their money when it was clear Benteke wasn't working at all for them.I'd actually say we could get close to 20m for Tosun. He's 28 going on 29 so he's probably got a good 3-4 years left in him at the top level (let's face it, he hardly busts a gut running 12km a game), and in the right league where pace perhaps isn't the be-all and end-all, he would be quite prolific, as his record in Turkey suggests.
As you say, wages would be a barrier, also he seems determined to try and stay in England. I could see a European club paying decent money for him, but surely the likes of Palace would be a bit stupid to offer 20m for a player who hasn't exactly been a roaring success for us.
