Mame Biram Diouf

Recommended Posts

Talksport believe we''re close to a deal for him. I''d definitely take him, a big guy who can play that lone striker role, and knows where the goal is. Not sure i trust the source though!

So we have him, Gayle, bamford, jedinak, that Leicester defender, the Danish mid and santon all joining before Monday!

Hope they all fit in okay!

Seems pretty clear that Gayle isn''t coming to Norwich. Not sure how the Diouf rumour sits with the Bamford one - guess it is one or the other.

Diouf would be a great addition for the run in and beyond. Can also play out wide, versatility is vital for AN I think.

Now AN''s realised we need to score six to win a game, he''s overloading us with strikers.

Still not quite over Liverpool.

Just as well we don''t have a game this weekend. Looks like the club will be busy until the end of Monday.

Only if you play Wes, Redmond, Naismith, and Dorrans together. Otherwise, nope, not at all, champ.

Diouf is a player way above our level, this will be great if it happens. It will be a FANTASTIC move. Not nec. what we need, but if we survive he''s our #1 next year and a REALLY really good one. I''d think Mbokani wouldn''t be back next year if Diouf comes (which is unfortunate, but Diouf is actually better).

And to think we all laughed Smudger out of town when he said we would need to score three goals to win a game!
Fair enough though, he is a twunt.

A Stoke City reserve striker is hardly "way above our level." He''s always looked decent when I''ve seen him play but let''s not do ourselves down.

He''s been injured and had a personal tragedy happen. Otherwise he wouldn''t be a reserve, fella.

From the BBC "Gossip" column (my underline):
Stoke have called off a club record move for Porto''s French midfielder Giannelli Imbula, 23, and turned down a £10m offer from abroad for their 28-year-old Senegal striker Mame Diouf.(Sunday Telegraph)

I posted this days ago, recalling  we had gone in for Walters  in the Summer but Hughes had stuck solid regarding letting him go, so the Diouf news is no surprise really. We never stood a  chance of getting him.

Would have to pay 12-15 mill, so probably right.

if not, we should probably be happy with Bamford. Strengthens our striker depth in more than adequate fashion. Granted Diouf would be more of a solid consistent starting threat, IMO Mbokani is good enough in that role.
