Echo reporting that Grujic and Wilson won't be allowed out on loan again, so will either be sold or in the first team next season.

Pretty sure they said that last year about Wilson.

I’d have thought so. Do we accept that as an improvement? In theory I’d say so  because I think he makes a difference in a way that Gini doesn’t but as a midfielder in our league he’s an unknown quantity, 29 and with a few questions about his injury history. Will he crumble under a Klopp regime? Gini is proven in our team and he’s consistent and he’s a fit fucker. 

Just bring him in and keep Gini.... we have one year to assess and decide.

Chelsea got spangled but apparently Hudson-Odoi was their best player. Gonna watch the game and revert.

Looks like we've prepared to sell Wilson for 20m with three clubs, Leeds, Newscatle and Southampton wanting to sign him permanently and not on loan. Shame if we do as I was hoping the lad would be part of the squad next season.

He’s no good. Deadly on the ball, but struggles to find it.

Thiago is a much better player than Gini. Not that I'd want to lose Gini, but if that's the only way we get Thiago, I'd be all for it.

Difficult to judge. Bayern were dominant. His ‘goal’ was class but didn’t really do that much, but he didn’t look out of his depth either. Thiago was great. He played so deep. I reckon if we get him he’d play the DM role for before Hendo... Lewandowski though... such a brilliant footballer.

We'll do this if we sign him:

 

                                      Salah

 

Mane                              Firmino                               Henderson

 

                  Thiago                          Fabinho

That’s how we often ended up with last season.

Leeds had a £22m bid turned down for White

I'm on record here as a huge fan of White, and I'm still hoping we end up with him.

 

Talk to any Leeds fan and they can't say enough about him, and his numbers are *chef kiss.* Not that you should judge a centre back by the numbers that are available to the public, as there is definitely a big effect from the kind of team they were in and the other players around them, but still, it's good to know.

 

Perfect age (22) to develop into a long-term Joe Gomez partner once Virgil leaves, a great passer and a monster in the air. Plus he's a great front-foot defender. Have to wait and see but I could see this one happening for £30m or so at some point.

I'm fully on board with White. Elite talent, no question about it. The fawning by Leeds supporters says it all and I think he has the perfect mix of potential and talent to be a long term foundational piece and also give both Gomez and Matip a needed kick up the ass, but what I don't get is why Brighton would even consider selling him. He's already got a hype train going after playing in the Championship, if he plays well in the Premier League, all of a sudden Brighton could be asking for Virgil money. I just don't see how this is happening this summer.

He's got 2-3 years left on his contract and has refused to sign a new one twice with Brighton.

I was going to say before I seen you reply to yourself Chelsea didn’t really have a best player.  Bayern basically ran over them.  It was one of those weird games where all the players knew the tie was over after that first goal went in.  Both teams then start doing strange things which they wouldn’t normally do in such a big game.  Chelsea were playing even more openly just to try and score so the game was all over the place.  It’s the first time I’ve ever played proper attention to Thiago and he looked class.

Liverpool’s interest in Kostas Tsimikas is concrete. The English Champions offered €12M (£10,85M) for him but the bid was rejected, Olympiacos want €18M (£16,27M). [@Sport24

So, €12m plus Karius.

Do people still think we will sign Thiago. Maybe after the Champions league.

TBF, he's perfectly entitled to keep mum for now. They're a great chance of winning it. 

 

Compare that to Werner sat in the stands watching Chelsea lose while his former team is actually in ok shape for the remainder of the CL.

The echo seem to be pushing the idea that thiago is all about if Gini signs or not. They've been slipping it into other articles for days and this morning they're running a story pretty much saying we won't let the Can situation happen again and thiago gives us the option. It does make you wonder if all this news has been designed to put pressure on Gini. I expect a new round of thiago stories this week if there's no movement on the contract.

Gini deadline is needed. Not putting fault on either side but business is business. The team is not facing major disruption this summer - he has admittedly played a lot of games and Hendo is currently injured but Keita's end of season form was a real positive.
