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.
