It takes a certain type of transfer rumour to warrant a blog all of its own writing, irrespective of the likelihood of it ever happening in the first place.
Nikola Zigic. 6ft 7ins of skinny-streaked contention.
The notion of attaining the services of a striker from a rival West Midlands club (albeit an out-of-contract one) is always one to get the fans tweeting, as has been the case in the last 24 hours.
That the player in question dangles somewhere between the cult and the comedy makes this particular snippet of gossip all the more titillating.
The chances are that the rumour of a done deal being revealed in early August is the most ridiculous in recent history. It has to be hasn’t it?
Given his notoriously extortionate wages and our recent history with high profile players, signing Zigic would be a disaster.
But there again, with the beanpole unable to command a lofty salary these days and being settled in the area, might he just be an unlikely answer to the striking conundrum we currently face?
Playing 4-5-1 with Jacobs buzzing behind Dicko has always looked so aesthetically pleasing, but when one or two more anaemic performances inevitably follow (Peterborough and Gillingham away spring to mind), an alternative option like this might just be a masterstroke.
With athletic and accurate wingers in plentiful supply at Molineux, could a bit of Chris Iwelumo history be repeating itself, who was similarly undesirable at the time we bought him, but feasted on our wingplay like a ravenous beast.
If Zigic scored a bucket load of goals before December like Big Chris so famously did, then might there be method to such madness?!
