Apologies i don't know much about him but we are keeping tabs on Kasper Junker. I think he's mid twenties and similar to Vardy in that he has not been exposed to a massive  amount of games at a high level in the early part of his career.  

Gerrimin!

 

Jerry the Junker,
Raggedy clothes and torn shoes
Oh that boy can sing the blues

Little Kasper and little Wes - are we trying to re-build our title-winning team! :P

Junker had an absolutely insane season 27 goals and 11 assists in 25 games. Never made an appearance for the senior Danish side though and not sure the Norwegian league would get the required points on its own for him to get a permit to play in the PL right now?

Yep just seen about Olise’s release clause. Can see us moving at that price in January to inject some creativity into the squad. 

Usually I'd say needs time to bed in. After Fofana all bets are off. Still question purchases for short term needs unless he actually is some one we are looking at long term. We can't afford another Gray.

My January wish list:

 

9:  Abdallah Sima, Slavia Praha:  19 year-old Senegalese center forward.  Tall and lanky, strong in the air, speedy.  Has an awkward gait - not like Haaland, but different.  Wriggles out of what seem like certain tackles.  Had a few excellent performances in the Europa League.  Obviously not Vardy, but I noticed Vardy-like movements and runs from him.
10:  Romain Faivre, Brest:  22 year-old French attacking midfielder.  Left-footed, free-kick merchant.  Over 2 key passes per match.  But covers well and is physical when he has to be.  More physical, left-footed version of Mads?
5:  Sven Botman, Lille:  20 year-old Dutch left-footed central defender.  Mountain of a young man at the same size as Van Dijk but he moves very well.  Ajax cut him loose and he's been a force for Lille so far. 

 

Not certain what to do about the wings, because I'm still not certain what our manager needs out of his wings based on whichever system he's playing.  But get these three in and you've got a Vardy understudy, more attacking intent to break down blocks in the midfield, and another young monstrous (but left-footed!) man at the back.  Depth everywhere and a solid squad to make the run in and bolster European dreams.

Haven't seen much of Olise, has he been as good as his stats suggest?

 

At 8m we could even sign him and let him stay at Reading for the rest of the season, could be worth double that in 6 months time.

He looks very talented with the ball, kind of player who will win a lot of fouls for his dribbling skills

 

Video includes clips from this season (#7 shirt), 19/20 season (#21 shirt) and 18/19 season (#48 shirt)

 

He mainly plays as a number 10 or also as a right winger, he will cut inside a lot if playing on the right wing as he does heavily favour his left foot

Think people are discussing wether or not he has a release clause. 

...the post I  replied to, stated we should buy Olise in the window and in six months his price would have doubled!!!

 My take on this is that, he is already worthy double the stated clause  price of £8m.

January could get interesting. 
 

I think the market could be great, as the financial Impact from COVID will force certain clubs to sell assets that they’d most likely have rather retained until the summer. 
 

I can see us letting Gray and Slimani go. He’s not needed here and releasing him earlier would do all parties a favour.

 

In terms of incomings, it’s clear that we do need backup to Vardy. Finding that is difficult and I don’t personally think it’ll be an established name that eventually does it. Unless we continually pull Champions League football, which is a hard pull for 85% of this league, then we won’t get a top, top player to sit on the bench. 
 

Then we have Ihenacho. As a backup currently he’s great. If you were him though, would you be looking to move on?

Ihenacho is an interesting one regarding moving on. Where would he go. He wouldn’t get a look in at any club deemed to be bigger than us and rival clubs for Europa league such as Wolves, Everton and Southampton he would probably get less game time than he does here. Dropping down to a side where he would get more game time comes with a relegation risk and also I don’t see him as the sort of striker who’d flourish in a poor side creating fewer chances. Going abroad is an option but surely the pay packet will take a massive hit. Only my opinion but I think he would be crazy to want to give up the gig he’s got here.
