Decent pace. Decent! He’s fucking rapid. His finishing is exceptional. He creates, scores, and closes down. I like Sancho, but if the manager sees Werner as a better deal, or maybe him + another player as a better deal... then I’m in. 

Agreed. 
 

Do you think he’ll play primarily on the left or central (I know he can do both)?

Werner or Sancho?

 

Am i the only one who'd prefer Sancho? Werner doesn't look that great at anything. Decent pace, decent touch, decent finisher, decent passing, decent/good player.

 

Sancho seems to have star qualities, exceptional touch, dribbling, speed. He's also taller and will only get stronger as he gets older and fills out. Plus he understands the league more and has played in England and it's his home.

 

Why are we going for Werner?!

Your talking like is like for like

Sancho fee will be double

His wages will be double. 

 

60million extra on the fee

80k extra each week

 

80 million extra over 5 years

I think it’ll depend on how he does when he comes and how well he adapts. You could have bet your left bollock that Naby would have hit the ground running but he hasn’t. Werner could come in and do incredible and be a starter in any position or he could be a bit part player covering Mane and Bobby. It’ll probably be rotation with him playing a lot during the time the others are out.

Because Werner will likely command 50% less salary, cost 50% less in fees and will be more likely to accepted a rotated part of our front line?

What's not to like?

If we don't go for Sancho, I think he will go to Spain unless Chelsea make a move. 

He isn't going to City and he would be nuts to go to United unless he gets assurances they are getting a new manager. In the current climate there, despite the financial rewards on offer to him, it could negatively impact his growth as a player when he can kick on to superstar status at Barca or Real. Arsenal would be equally unlikely and Spurs aren't going to spend the kind of money to get him.

I don't see Chelsea making a move after buying ziyech this week.

Cantwell is as close a replacement for Lallana as you can find IMO.

We have Elliott to fulfil the bad hair quota, Klopp likes him so much yet no new contract has been offered.

True, will probably need that 6 month adaptation time like most of our new signings need.

Full Ornstein quotes:

 

Liverpool want £30m Cantwell

 

They may be reigning European champions and hurtling towards the Premier League title but Liverpool are already formulating plans to improve next season and The Athletic has learnt that the Anfield club have intensified their interest in signing Norwich midfielder Todd Cantwell.

 

Cantwell caught the eye on his Premier League debut at Anfield in August and Liverpool were among a host of teams to express admiration for the 21-year-old in the subsequent months.

 

Manchester City, Tottenham and Manchester United are also keen, but once the January transfer window closed Liverpool stepped up their pursuit and can now be considered front-runners.

 

Jurgen Klopp’s side were able to view Cantwell up close again during Saturday’s meeting at Carrow Road and it is thought he impressed members of the playing and coaching staff.

 

Regardless of whether they are relegated from the top flight, Norwich would likely seek around £30 million for the England Under-21 international, who has six goals and two assists in 27 games.

I think he's pretty decent, especially considering his age. If we're going to keep up our tradition of picking over the relegated carcasses, the rejected Hanson brother is probably as good as any available.

 

Wonder if not going after Maddison is also fresh in a few minds.

    • Coronavirus: Premier League plan to restart season branded unworkable as clubs eye solution   Plans to put players under lockdown for a month to get the season finished have been branded unworkable – because clubs are too picky. The hotel quarantine plan is one idea mooted for Friday's next round of talks between the Premier League, EFL, Football Association and the Professional Footballers’ Association.     In a bid to conclude the season, one proposal is to squeeze remaining games into a condensed time frame in June, behind-closed-doors, with players kept in isolation to protect them from the risk of contracting coronavirus. Stadiums, hotels and training facilities would undergo a “deep clean”, with the players under strict quarantine, to enable the season to be completed by mid-July.   But Christian Machowski, whose company ESEM specialises in travel management for top clubs across Europe, believes the plan is unrealistic, because of the particular demands of the elite teams when it comes to hotels and training facilities.   “There are so many factors that come into play," said Machowski. “When clubs are looking to book hotels, one of the chief issues is what is an acceptable time to drive to a stadium? "Teams don't want to be stuck on a bus for 45 minutes to an hour, travelling to a game. “Everybody wants the best for their team, but there's only a small number of elite hotels that are suitable. “For example, there are two or three hotels in London where all the teams tend to stay when they play there. “To find a venue where 20 teams can find facilities up to the required standard is just not workable."   “In terms of training facilities, teams would also want to be as a close as possible, so that would present problems. “Then you would have to quarantine the same hotel staff for three or four weeks. “And if one team picked up an infection, whether it's a player or member of staff, that's the end of the tournament.   “It's not about teams staying in luxury, it's complicated because the infrastructure is so finely tuned for clubs in terms of what they need.”   Brighton have voiced their opposition to the proposal for a single-city Premier League finale. Officials at the club have major reservations due to concerns over hotel accommodation, the number of pitches required and the intense fixture schedule.   Chief executive Paul Barber also has concerns about even discussing a return to football while the coronavirus casualty rate around the country soars. “As creative as we want to be, people are losing their lives,” said Barber. “This is a serious, serious situation. We're totally driven towards completing the season but, at the moment, it is tough to talk about it.”   Machowski, whose company has handled almost 500 European games and training camps for top clubs over the past 24 years, reckons the number of teams involved also makes the plan impossible to pull off.   “You could maybe get away with it in the Champions League, for example, with a mini-tournament, because you're dealing with fewer teams,” said Machowski.   “But here you're talking about 20 teams and there's so much at stake. It's not like a pre-season tournament where there's a trophy at the end. “This is about titles, about relegation, qualification for the Champions League and Europa League, so no-one should be able to complain that they missed out because maybe the hotel, training facilities, travel or food wasn't right. “So it's not really workable, for so many different reasons.”   https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/coronavirus-premier-league-plan-restart-21789901
    • I think this could be an interesting summer for fees. I don't think Seville would pay that, but I suspect there may be less money kicking around in the game because of the virus and I reckon there'll be some clubs in distress and needing to sell, so there'll be a few bargains about. I know there's a lot of money kicking round in the game, but so many clubs carry debt and that can be ok when cashflow is good, but even if all sponsorship and TV money come through, there'll be loads of fare receipts lost and a likely late start to next season, so another delay in cash coming in. 
    • I get it (I think!). I think sky and the PL probably row all the time. I think the PL won't have been even a little surprised sky want to play it. It may sour the relationship, but to me it would show some immaturity from the PL if it did. I think people are used to taking opposite points of view in business and when it's done, you just have to move forward. There's nothing to be gained by looking back. And as I say, if there is any doubt in any of the boards at PL clubs that sky are right here, it's the fact it's not just sky, it's all the sponsors. I reckon once they acknowledge they have to play the games (which I think they already have), their only focus will be getting 19/20 done so they can start 20/21 and get the next tranche of TV and sponsorship money. They know they're not in control of when fans come through the gates, so the closest thing they can control is finding a way to get games on TV and get the cash rolling. 
    • You’ll have to forgive me, Wom. I’m shit at getting my point across. Obviously none of that will happen overnight but what I was trying to say in my initial post is that this could be the beginning of the end as things turn a bit sour between all involved. It’ll all be streaming eventually, this could speed up the process. Maybe it’s just wishful thinking but perhaps at least some good can come out of all this.
