Shakhtar to Sign a Top Class Striker?
Ukrainian media reports that Shakhtar are about to sign one of the biggest and well known strikers in Europe... with the money they get from the Tymoschuk deal... They are prepared to spend around $30mln.
Of course this could all just be rumours with no solid ground, but if they were to sign someone who do you think would it be?
My possibilities would be:
a) Bojinov - a great striker that cant find his place in Italy. He's also from Esatern Europe.
b) Mutu - eastern Europe, Romanian and affordable. Lucescu certainly could pursuase him - an all Romanian strike force (Mutu + Marica)
c) Zigic - again eastern Europe (Serbia), tall, powerfull and with a lot of potential. It seems Juve is intersted in him, but if Shakhtar offers the right price, there is a remote chance.
d) Arshavin - a possibility of an exchange shouldnt be disregarded. But, personally, i doubt Zenit will let go Arshavin immedeately the sale of Kerzhakov.
e) Kone - not as well known as the others but Shakhtar were considering him at one point. His latest interview saying that if he did go to Russia/Ukraine, he;s career would be over makes this transfer seem much less realistic, but money talks louder, usually.
I doubt Shakhtar would go for any of the older strikers. And these 4 listed above are all reasonably young and already somewhat proven and well known.
