Tom Cairney has been linked to us consistently over the last year. Once again in recent days, it has been reported that the 27-year-old could leave Craven Cottage for £20m in the summer if the Championship club fails to get promoted.
They currently sit third the table, seven points behind Cardiff, and are likely to have to settle for a playoff place. If they fail to secure a promotion spot, could the playmaker be on his way to us?
Under the current ownership, it seems unlikely that the club would shell out such a sizeable fee. In addition, you have to consider his record this campaign in the Championship. He has been plagued by knee problems this season, and in the 26 games he has managed to play, he has scored just twice and provided four assists.
It`s a stark contrast to last season`s excellent form where he scored 13 and contributed 12 assists in all competitions. Certainly, we are in need of a no.10, but is the Scottish international the answer? Fans on Twitter participated in a heated debate on the merits of buying the midfielder.
Ashley will never spend 20m! Pointless even writing about it.

We`re desperate for a number 10, he would`ve walked in our team all season. Price quite high.

The fact that the price is £20 million automatically means we are not interested.
