He would score goals, we need another goal scorer
He hasn't scored in the league this season and scored only 4 to his name last season. We need a goal scorer yes but what we don't need is an unfit player who hasn't scored a league goal in nearly a year and whose career has fallen off a cliff.

Only way this is going to happen is if Levy reverts back to his pre AVB ways and ignores the managers wishes and just buys purely with his wallet in mind.

Levy is still very money conscious but he's come a long way since then.

We put so much effort in to buy him a couple of seasons back. So aside from his lack of game time what's different other than he can now be bought for much less. I think we should definitely try to get him.

I'm sure he will dangle a carrot in front of Poch with the idea as a temptation

He is the type of player i think we need and don't currently have, but I can think of quite a few players like him who looked like they would go on to be great players but just lose their mojo and disappear into obscurity and i'm finding it really hard to think of any players that have bounced back from this....

but if we could get him for under £10 mill I think he would be worth a shot

But poch was desperate for him at one stage. Why not now?

He's a player that when we get towards the end of the season and need a goal, I wouldn't mind having Berahino on the bench to bring on

He had one decent season (for a youngster) but that was what, 3 years ago? On a free and with an incentives based wage and I could get on board, otherwise swerve.

Mental strength is just as important as ability.

Attitude I'd expect. Instead of knuckling down and being a professional, he threw he toys out of his pram, sulked and put on weight. We dodged a bullet with this one and I'd be amazed if Poch was looking at him now.

Then why on earth did we buy Sissoko?
