Where's Wilfried Bony?
By the time summer comes along, he might be owned by a Russian club (from Voetbal International via Sky Sports): "I hope to leave this winter. My wishes have not changed. Yes, the market in Russia is not open  for very much longer, but what can I do?"
When all the scouts and media attention are focused in on Vitesse games to see Wilfried, someone like Alfred Finnbogason goes under the radar.
He's three goals behind Bony, and during the season, the 24-year-old Icelandic international had stretches where he scored in six successive games and had seven goals in five games.
Alfred's teammate Filip Duricić has agreed to join Benfica, a club with a proven track record in buying low and selling high, so don't feel queasy if you've never heard of Heerenveen.
The Dutch club have had esteemed forwards in the past like Ruud van Nistelrooy, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, Jon Dahl Tomasson, Afonso Alves and Bas Dost.
Where would Finnbogason rank among the aforementioned forwards?
It's hard to tell because Alves by far was the best forward out of the group at Heerenveen, yet he was a costly flop at Middlesbrough.
Ruud's goal scoring record for Heerenveen was respectable—13 goals in 31 league games—but you wouldn't have gone out on a limb and predicted him scoring 44 goals in one season for Manchester United.
KJH is one of the best finishers inside the penalty box.
JDT is like Miroslav Klose in that both played better for the national team than at club level.
Dost was very lucky to be playing with Duricić, Luciano Narsingh and Oussama Assaidi. Bas is a good player but he overachieved big-time last season.
Keep in mind, Finnbogason's answer to Narsingh is a journeyman in Daniël de Ridder, who wakes up everyday feeling sorry for himself knowing he wasted all that talent.
If Dost is good enough to be playing in the Bundesliga, then I have no doubt that Finnbogason can play in one of Europe's elite leagues.
 Not all transfer windows are concurrent with England. The Russian window closes in a week's time.
