Fulham - Rivalling Wigan for Johnson?

After having signed Bobby Zamora our squad has a fair number of strikers in it.

As well as Zamora we have Erik Nevland, Eddie Johnson, Collins John, David Healy and probably a couple of others that, at the moment, I'm too hung over to remember.

Strange then that, according to the Daily Mirror, we've placed ourselves alongside Wigan Athletic as serious contenders for the signature of the want-away Everton forward Andrew Johnson.

Apparently, Wigan Athletic, managed by Steve Bruce, are preparing to offer Wigan a fee in the region of 9 million.

Now forgive me if I sound a little churlish, but that fee itself would be enough to frighten me off.

There's no denying that our inability to score on a regular basis last season played a part in our relegation struggle and whilst admitting that the loss of Brian McBride will hit us hard, as will the loss of Diomansy (Joe) Kamara through injury, someone please tell me we're not going to lavish that amount of cash on Johnson?

Please!

I don't think we have the cash to pull this one off

It would be an amazing signing. He guarantees us 20 goals a year

All we need to do is offer 10m and Johnson is ours.... you've done well getting Zamora. He's a good striker. Fulham have made some astute signings. Sunderland, Hull and Stoke are for the drop. From a Wigan fan in peace.

I see Everton have rejected the 9 million bid from Wigan!
Al Billy
let him stay - don't think he's worth that amount!

id say 10 million max 10.5 hes not worth no more

U.S.A. Olympic squad announced today included McBride as one of three over age players allowed on the squad.

I keep hearing that we've agreed a fee and he is in london talking to the club

I'd be surprised if we spent that amount of money on AJ. He is a quality player and would guarantee some goals which is what we desperately needed last season. Suspect he's on his way to Wigan though
