Owls' Rasiak Move Edges Closer

Owls' Rasiak Move Edges Closer

Wednesday look to be moving closer to securing a deal to bring Southampton striker Grzegorz Rasiak to Hillsborough next season.

The Owls have already shown interest in the Polish striker, and were linked with a move for him last summer, only to be thwarted by his price tag,

But boss Brian Laws looks to be closing in on getting his man following the Saints' relegation to League One.

The experienced striker was on loan at Watford last season, scoring eight goals in 21 appearances for the Hornets.

And Laws has already revealed that a striker is next on his hit list as he looks to build his squad for the 2009-10 campaign sooner rather than later.

so instead of trying to get a guy(lita) whos available on a free and would offer a lot more hes gunna go for rasiak who would probably command a fee and ask for more wages-unbelievable!!!! getting more and more annoyed with BL.

How can anyoe criticise Laws for trying to bring in a striker who scored 8 goals in 21 games? On the ratio he would give you 17/18 goals per season...I think we'd all take that?

17/18 goals if he stayed fit which seems a rare thing for our strikers. dont understand how anyone could be annoyed with BL though,he has worked wonders under the circumstances he has been faced with.

lita would command at least 15k a week wages - can't see wendy paying that at all. remember he turned us down in jan when beattie went and we offered 1.5m cash + 15k a week wages. apparantly he's a thorn in the dressing room big time - take a look at him, you know what i mean. He's da man!! yeh!! finger-slap - bling!!

Come on now guys..... anyone who truly believes we have a hope in hell of getting Lita has got to be dreaming. Sure, it would be nice to have someone as good as him, but he's well known for spitting his dummy out and not being a team player. We don't need no prima donnas at S6!

BFL raises an interesting point about Lita but his wages and ego may still be curtailed by the clubs that seek to pursue his signature (market forces and all that). Rasiak is a targetman that scores goals, potential foil for Tudgay possibly, even Jeffers feasibly. Interesting development.

Rasiak seems like a good move to me. Robc is spot on we need a foil for Tudders and with rasiak we have the options of sodje/rasiak as foils for tudders/jeffers. As for Lita, i'd rather have a Gallen!!!

Simply put, I don't believe the speculation linking us with Rasiak. We know that Laws wants two players: One midfielder, one striker. At the same time we here that he aims to get one guy in permanently and one in on loan... He's trying to get Potter in on a full transfer which leaves us with somebody coming in on loan... I really can't see that being Rasiak.
