Seriously, are people gonna post 'we should have signed Piatek' every time he scores? It's perfectly understandable why the club didn't go for Piatek. As well as Piatek has done this season, it's still his first in Europe's top 5 leagues. For all we know, he could be a one season wonder. Remember Belotti? He scored 26 league goals in 2016/17 but then fell away with just 10 goals in 2017/18 and now just 7 in 2018/19. After seeing the likes of Morata, Batshuayi failed in recent seasons, we absolutely couldn't fail with the striker position and it's understandable why we went for Higuain instead, even if it's at best a short term solution. If Piatek does end up doing well at Milan, then fair play to him and if we want to get him then, it's more than possible given Milan's situation with Financial Fair Play. If not, there are still options elsewhere with Icardi or Werner. 

Where I do think Piatek would be a good buy for us  OK yes it's a gamble buying him.

OK Say we did.

Is it a bigger gamble buying a player thats currently on very good form 'with lots of potential'  than to play a kid that has no form 'with potential'

Or which makes the more sense.

To keep an unproven kid who may or may not turn out OK or sell him for £40mill and buy a player with that money thats more complete?

These are questions I ask myself that I really dont know what the best option would be mate.

I don't know what the answer is but I do know that I would be playing CHO more in our current position tho
