even if the likes of everton came in for him - surely he would prefer to stay here - chances are they'd offer him twice the wage we would though.

They’d also offer him a longer contract than we would aswell.  It would be a no-brainer for him tbh.

I guess people forget that 1.5 years ago, Chelsea were trying to sign Rondon and then ended up with Giroud in the Jan 2018 Window. Rondon with the proper setup around him is so damn good.

Until the West Ham game, I didn't know he could take free kicks.  Stupidly just assumed he wouldn't have the technical skill... feel a bit stupid now.

He's approaching Demba Ba levels of appreciation for me.

Double figures now for the season. Considering how many goals he creates with his hold up play and general battering of defenders, he's some asset.

I think he hit the bar with an earlier free kick, might have been the Wolves game.

It’s a difficult one though, I’d pay £15m no probs as 2 more seasons at this level easy, fit as a lop, depends on the price.

Best we've had up top for many a year, Demba for one season, Cisse for half one but this guy's overall play is fantastic and he has genuine quality in front of goal. He's scored a lot of different goals this season, the free-kick today, bullet headers, tap ins etc.

Seems to be really enjoying it here so would be a bit of a tragedy the move weren't made permanent in the summer. Think he's turned out to be a lot better than most people thought, myself included.

Our most important player. It would be crazy not to sign him.

It's important that we sign him as we know what he's about and he's done very well. No guarantee that another striker will hit the ground running.

We could get away without paying any money by giving them Gayle and Murphy (that's if West Brom want him), we might even get a few quid as well, though just to get the deal done I wouldn't be too fussed about that.
