Monk knows from experience how tough it can be to mark his star striker, and believes he has the ability to bully Premier League defences in the same manner as Drogba during his time at Chelsea.
"Wilfried can definitely have the same impact as Drogba," said Monk. "And with Michu back now, they will both want to be the top dog and get goals for us.
"He is a real strong lad. He dislocated my finger on the first day in training. I'd never once in my whole career dislocated a finger, but the first day he was here I went to push off him and my finger just snapped. It was left just dropping down.
"He is solid. You wouldn't want to make him angry, you don't need that in your life."
