Honestly, the January window is such a weird thing. Mid-season, I don't think we should be adding any more than one member of the main squad, and would otherwise look to scoop up one, maybe two, youngsters who could come in that were in the Cardoso vein.
Would see how things are going at the time, but as with the summer - the most obvious place we could do with an upgrade on our options is in central midfield. Which, even then, depends on whether Pellegrini finds a spot for Fornals in the three and if he shines there.

Started his career as a striker (briefly), so could certainly 'do a job' there. Would put him as third choice behind Ajeti for the moment, though. I didn't notice Ajeti do anything particularly bad in the Newport game, personally, and some of his movement was spot on. Yes, he's a step down from Haller, but equally he cost a quarter of the price.
Would like to see him get some Premier League minutes under his belt, and that all important first goal.
