Well if these guys had anything to say about it, he’d already be in the car up the M40 to sign the papers.
And in all honesty, can you blame them?
So news came out the other day from Football Insider that former Blues man Che Adams will be available for a ‘knockdown fee’, with his current club Southampton willing to let him go for as little as £10m, which is £5m less than what the Blues sold him for last summer.
Is Che Adams a realistic option for the Blues?
I wrote yesterday that bringing him back would be tough but not impossible, and reading the responses of these Birmingham City fans to @BCFC_News’ tweet, whilst some of them are still rather cautious, the overwhelming sense amongst the faithful is that this is something that the Blues need to be doing in order to go forward, with many of them talking about the rather bizarre finances that would surround such a deal.
Take it blues. 4 amazing attacking players. Adam’s hogan juke and bela. Unstoppable there

EFL will dock us points if we buy him at a cheaper price,

Does anyone know if we had a sell on clause? Might be able to buy him back even cheaper if they take that percentage away

If we can’t keep Hogan on a permanent deal then this just seems VERY stupid not to do. S’hampton would of basically paid us £5 million for a loan. We also haven’t spent the money we got for him last season so this would be a good bit of business imo. Proven GS for the Blues.

Sign Hogan, buy Che back. Keep everyone else and find a new CB and we’re good for a playoff push?

Buy him back for £10m and Southampton have just given us £5m for nothing. Lmao

And taking a look at his goal record in this division, you can’t really blame them.
