Summer 2020 Transfer Thread

Recommended Posts

Gini Wijnaldum’s camp are still waiting for Liverpool to open talks about a new contract at Liverpool, according to Sky Sports.

 

The midfield powerhouse made 35 Premier League starts, scoring four times as the Reds marched to their first top-flight title in 30 years. Although failing to trouble the headline writers and plaudits, Wijnaldum has been integral to Liverpool’s title success.

 

And he is believed to be well liked by boss Jurgen Klopp after he arrived from Newcastle for £25million in the summer of 2016. In fact he was one of Klopp’s first significant signings in the summer of 2016. There’s no way that Klopp could replace the six-goal star for that sort of money and, as per the source, they are not actively looking to add to their midfield options. That means that the Thiago Alcantara speculation is coming from the Bayern Munich man’s camp. TEAMtalk told you last month that Klopp was not interested in a move for Thiago, but the talk from Germany has been non stop.

 

However, if the Wijnaldum situation does not change, then so might Klopp’s plans. The Dutch midfielder has entered the final 12 months or his deal and there have been no sign of talks over an extension. That in itself is strange for a club whose transfer negotiations have been pretty flawless over the last few years.

Wijnaldum ‘loves playing for the club’

Sky maintain that Wijnaldum “loves playing for the club and there is no suggestion” the 29-year-old will leave. Last month The Atheltic’s Liverpool correspondent James Pearce was quoted as saying the midfielder’s future was “uncertain”. Pearce said, via LFC Transferoom: “Uncertainty continues over Wijnaldum’s future. If it’s not resolved soon then they’ll have to decide whether to sell him or keep him like they did with Emre (Can) knowing he will probably leave for nothing next summer.”

 

In contrast to that respected Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano said the Reds had begun talks last month. He claimed in The Guardian that Liverpool were hopeful of agreeing an extension after “positive talks” with the midfielder. The evidence of that appears non-existent and from next January, Wijnaldum will be able to speak to foreign clubs.

Where is Lille getting all the funds this year ? Think they snapped up UTD youngster also and immediately loaned him out. 

 

They sold Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen (we were linked to him recently too - probably agent bollocks) to Napoli for something like 70 million Euros. They may have sold one or two others too.

Fuck off Pep.

I was about to say I get the impression most players who have played for him think he’s a complete knobhead.  I looked up if any players have ever followed him from his previous club and there’s only one and it’s actually Thiago.


It’s funny that this fair fee thing keeps doing the rounds though.  He’s got a year on his contract and then he’s going for free.  I know that’s not the exact amount that a buying club would save because the player would want a better signing on fee but still I find it strange when clubs still pay stupid fees for players at that stage of a contract.

I can see us doing that loan to buy deal that was mooted about Palace and Sarr, not sure about us putting £40m down this summer. Seems mad to add another African forward in to the mix with the ACON but who knows what we’ll look like come then. If we can swap Wilson and Shaqiri for the price of Sarr I reckon Klopp does that deal.

I think there will be plenty of better options for us than Sarr if the fee really is £40m. He's very inconsistent and the ACoN thing will be a big issue.

 

Loaning him with an option to buy doesn't really make much sense either - if he's shit, we've wasted a year's loan fee + wages, if he's good it'll push his price up even more, and then he'll go to the ACoN halfway through the season anyway.

Presumably it would be a deal with a fixed fee.

I keep on reading that Salah or Mane are going to be sold next year. Where are people getting this from? 

If you say it every summer then at some point you will be right and can then claim to be an ITK cunt.

The Sarr link is laughable.  We didn’t sign Werner for a cut price because of the financial situation yet we are going to spend well in excess of 40m for winger who had about 3 good games all year.  His self entitled twat of a reaction that time he got subbed would have been enough to put the club off regardless.  He literally had a good game against us and that’s it for some of our fans.

 

This stinks of Watford putting it out there that Liverpool are in interested because it’s the best way of getting someone else to bid for him.  As has been pointed out he’s going to be playing in ACN and he’s on a long deal.  Edwards wouldn’t even bother calling them even if they rated the player.

I don't think we're signing Sarr either, but financially it's nowhere near the same as with Werner. Werner wanted wages on par with our top earners and had a buyout clause which meant having to pay the whole fee at once.

 

In theory, we could sign Sarr for like 25m with a bunch of add-ons and give him like 70k a week. He'd be way cheaper.

Agree with this and Im underwhelmed we are supposedly interested. Strikes me as a benteke quality player. Didnt he have a couple of air shots right in front of goal when Watford should have beaten us at Anfield?

I don’t think anybody actually wants us to sign Sarr do they? It feels like something we’d do though, like trying to sign Mane before he broke out at Southampton. I’ve seen nowhere near enough of him to make a judgement but he’s young, rapid and raw. He fits the profile of player we look at. It also doesn’t hurt to leak rumours like that out there if we were trying to sign someone else.

    • since vvd came into the team, we changed the goalkeeper, established a right back (trent had started just 10 premier league games prior to vvd joining and wasn't a right back prior to the 1st team) , brought in robbo (I know we had bought him by then, but he only got in the team once vvd arrived) and added fabinho. The only consistent is we don't have a new centre back alongside as we had the 2 we have now plus lovren and klavan. it just illustrates the shite lengths he is going to at the moment to undermine us. it's up for everyone to decide for themselves why that is, for me it started after his suspension. 
    • I still think VAR is a very useful tool, but the goons in charge of using it are the biggest problem in combination with rules that complicate matters needlessly. When England didn't have a single official at the last World Cup, that should have told the authorities that refereeing at the highest level in this country needed a shake-up because we had a whole raft of Mike Rileys, with one or two trying to be the new Howard Webb.   The examples in rugby and cricket often get cited for how well they work. I'm sure it's not foolproof and 100% accurate in those sports, but there can't be too many instances of the officials getting the decision-making spectacularly wrong when they've had the use of technology, purely because they use the technology to try and inprove their decision-making.   As difficult as it might be for them, it really needs for former players to be more involved in the refereeing process because all the current perspectives come from officials sat in a committee room somewhere, many of whom have never even played the game, and some of whom that have administrative experience but no really affinity for the sport. If these former players can really understand the laws of the game as they currently are, then they can provide some input based on their experiences as to where changes could be made.
    • Despite them being FC class and dignity a few of them heard wrongly that he worked in Iceland in Old Swan so filmed themselves waiting for him outside saying they were going to do him in.   Quite funny really as he worked with my mate in a prison so they looked stupid hanging round for hours waiting for him to turn up.   He said he couldn't go out for six months because he kept getting threatened and almost lost his job as he had been accused of inciting hatred before the game and then trying to fight with Sevilla fans. Even though one of them grabbed his teenage son and stole his seat which they had tickets for. They had won 2 tickets in a ballot even before we had played the Mancs. It was just pure luck that Liverpool got there and they had a ticket for the final when the stadium only held about 30k, half of which were made available to season ticket holders.    One Evertonian I know started tweeting at the time that Liverpool fans were causing trouble again and bunking in just and all of them believed it straight away. 
    • Yeah. Bobby and Yoko are twinsies.
    • give it a few months, if the vvd injury has really hurt us, he will be singing you lost the league at goodison with the rest of them.
