    He is without a club, still only 30, and surely would be worth a look?

    https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/franco-di-santo/transfers/spieler/59783

    Had 6 months in Spain after a few years in the Bundesliga. A bit of an enigma, but capable of class on his day. I would definitely be inviting him down to Euxton if I was at the club.

    Are the club…Chris Brass and Paul Cook even looking? Are they confident enough in our own club making such a move? I am. I know Jewell had a bit of a ‘we are a small club’ complex before we got promoted to the Premier League, but I just hope our current manager may have a bit more confidence. Make the move…dont know until you ask. Id sooner have Di Santo back than Clarke.

    At the age of 30 vat I would say he without a club for a good reason. He must have been poor of late. Crouchy is a free agent as well but he is 38 so too old. I think we are putting all our eggs in one Jamal Lowe basket and it could backfire.

    I do too. Its a situation that benefits Portsmouth, and or the player. It seems as though its us and Millwall in a bidding war for him, which only puts up the fee and also improves his chances of staying there on a better contract.

    They are talking 3 million, but I don’t want us to pay that for him. I think there must be better options. Maybe Di Santo would relish, and thrive from a new start at a slightly lower level?

    We need to think a bit bigger I think. Buying a player from League One who has done ok, but not been outstanding, and paying 3 million…we may as well have kept hold of Will Grigg.

    Scoring record is horrific and was generally poor for us. In 11 years in Europe has scored only 36 goals at an average of 3 a season. NO thanks.

    He also scored some class goals for us the last time he was with us.

    It was just a thought.
