Kenneth Zohore joins WBA
« on: July 17, 2019, 10:46:00 AM »
£8 million fee agreed.

Medical expected.

Looking at some of the comments on Twitter, quite a few of the Cardiff fans seem a bit sad about losing him, some saying they thought he would have a good season this year etc etc.

Just looking at his previous stats:

16/17 season scored 12 in 29.
17/18 season scored 9 in 36.

To be honest I am just happy we are signing a striker  :D does look a Bilic type of player though.

At 25 we could get some good years out of him. That's half of the Rondon money gone.

Still leaves us needing at least 1 more striker.

Who??????

LOL, thats what we love about this club, just when you think you know everything, we get a decent curveball like this. I do not profess to know anything about this guy but on paper it seems like he could be quite useful. Happy days.....[?]

I suppose it goes to show the 'silence' form the clubs doesn't mean we aren't trying to sort deals in the background.

Makes a change for us to only find out about this deal before its complete. Much prefer it this way than being in the public eye for 2 weeks before we complete it.

Looks more composed in front of goal than HRK or Rondon

Just had a quick look on Twitter, Cardiff fans seem a bit split on it, thinking he could do well but we have overpaid at £8m, my guess is its half that and the rest made up on goals/ appearances/promotion etc personally I dont care, its a signing in an area we need and he knows the league well and its not my money!!

Remember those are goals in a Warnock side as well who are not very creative. Think in a Bilic team he could get us 12/15 goals and bring our midfield into play. Seems a strong and technical striker

Certainly seems to know where the net is and can finish one on ones. Left footed too?

I think 8 million is way over what he is worth. Surely for that kind of money we could have done better?
His goal ratio isnt brilliant either.

Yeah totally agree.
Seasons work out at just over 1 in 2 and 1 in 4 in their promotion year. Just had a look at Cardiff as a team only scored 69 in 46 that season so they weren't exactly free scoring.

I'm quite happy with the deal to be honest. At times last year we need a striker similar to him, and with us getting him now he seems a better version of HRK which is 100% a good thing  ;D

Just need to compliment him now and get a 'smaller' striker in, someone similar to Gayle/Roofe etc.

Does that put to bed the Maupay rumours now?

I would assume if we get another attacker in it will be a loan deal now.

Seems to know where the goal is, lets just hope the compilation of 'near misses' is not as long :)

Deal worth up to £8million means we’re probably paying around £3/4mil upfront and the rest in instalments and add ons I’d presume.

If we continue to leak goals anything even remotely like we did last year then we’re going to need this guy to seriously improve his scoring record. We had two 20+ strikers last year this guy would just about get 20 in two seasons, he’s not prolific by any stretch.

Always struck me as someone with good touch and movement for his size.....fair bit of largely unrealised potential.

He's only 25 which means he'd have been relatively young when he played in the Championship before. Also Warnock sides are not known for being free flowing, creating lots of chances. If you take away J Rod's penalties he scored 13 (I think from memory) last season, Zohore is capable of matching that total no question. He's a typical Bilic centre forward, the type I'd expect him to sign.

Let's hope we can get this over the line and let's hope it's the first of at least, a few.

Watched him a few times last season.
Strong target man on the front, not a goal scorer in PL but should be OK in championship.

No lol. 40 career goals, but big, the right age and hopefully Bilic sees something in him. Probably no coincidence we are after a winger as well, so looks like we are going on the attack this season....fingers crossed.

Seems a decent signing to me in todays market. Big guy with a good touch and an eye for goal. At 25 should have his best years ahead, been on the fringe of the Danish squad and hopefully is hungry (for success not pies)

Who are Shearer and Cole? Is that Cheryl Cole. Most kids won't have a clue what you're singing about!
