We've finally got the statement striker the club has been after all summer in the form of Simone Zaza. Loaning him for a season with an option to buy probably suits all parties. And his season's fee of around 5 million Euros isn't that different to Calleri's. Zaza certainly looked pretty tasty in the Betway Cup against us and thinks our stadium is "beautiful". Simone has won the league with Juventus, played for Italy in the Euros (best not mention that penalty) and is a genuinely A-list striker. I'm looking forward to seeing his left foot in action and after the Ayew and Carroll injuries it should give everyone at the club a lift. And he now joins our Z-list of strikers in Zarate, Zamora and Zaza.
