We should aim for skilful attackers instead of target limited players. The goal of the club should be to increase the technical level of the team, not accept we can never compete with big teams in ability m. So let’s just get big guys and lump it up. Players like Jota when he played for Wolves is what we should look at. Hell even Adana Traore with better players around him would be an assetSeems likely he's at least a better goalscorer given he's already matched Giroud's best league haul. He seems to be much more pacey and athletic if we're comparing him to Giroud. Lack of pace being one of Giroud's key weaknesses.
There seems to be a snobbyness about target men because of our history. The days of us attracting this generation's Henry or RVP seem very unlikely in our current state. In our current state many of our chances come from crosses and set pieces. It makes sense to buy one of the best headerers (if that's a word) in the game given where we are right now.
Another profile of player we should look at is Romain Faivre at Brest. Really talented attacking midfielder
