Can’t see it happening.

1) He’s 30 years old. Do you think the club will spend 25m on a 30 year old who would be 31 before start of next season?

2) He is playing best football of his career as a striker. No way he’d start as a striker here ahead of Morata, not certain he’d be great outwide although he’s played there for Belgium but not to same standard or effect as he does for Napoli centrally.

3) More than likely would want to sign on a long contract and big wages, once he’s 33 or 34 he’d more than likely be sold on, could be hard to offload. 

4) Even if signed and promised to play striker role would be off the bench. Can’t be any worse than Michy but again can’t see a 30 y/o in best form of his life coming here to be second choice CF.
