i agree in principle but for 7million we'd be stupid not to as he's scored at international level for the dutch. to even get in the dutch u21's you need to be half decent footballer.
if the figure it closer to say 15million which i think it would be, then i'd agree that with that 15million we'd be better off signing a couple of proven strikers in perhaps their last 2-3 yrs of useful career, and hope in that 2-3 yrs Ji, Wickham, Campbell can come good. or we pick up someone else.
