Maddison on his way to Arsenal for £55-70m apparently.

That's an expensive Bill, not sure they are Right to pay it. 

Little US history pun for you there.

I think they just want to offload all that surplus Aaron Ramsey gear they were stuck with. Just needs a quick adjustment and it's good to go.

That makes more sense than buying him to play in goal, he's frigging pish!

Bowen is better than Origi and Minamino, and more suited to our style than Shaq. So long as he’s not seen as Salah’s long term replacement I’d be really happy with the purchase.

Don't think it's worthwhile comparing Bowen to players we already have that we know aren't very good. Compare him to the players who we'd miss out on by spending £35m on him.

 

Also you have to assess how much a player can actually impact the team on the pitch. There's no point spending £35m on an attacker who plays 700 minutes + cup games when you could have put the money towards a £50m midfielder who plays 3000 minutes with crucial contributions in late stage CL games. Look at how Edwards and Klopp worked to improve the squad over his first few seasons here, it wasn't a big overhaul, it was a gradual evolution based around bringing in the absolute best player we could get.

 

Basically if Bowen is the best forward we can attract right now for whatever reason, save the cash and buy Camavinga instead.

I know I mentioned similar to that last night but I’ve been thinking about it a bit more. 
 

Although in my opinion he would be an improvement, is he the best we could get with the £35m it would allegedly cost?

 

For that money, as I said last night, he wouldn’t be anywhere near the top of my list, but our analytics department have proved to be right more often than not recently and we have a history of historically improving players. 
 

I’m remaining on the fence - From

the limited amount of times I’ve seen him, I quite like him as a player, but I’m not convinced he’s good enough for us.

If you are playing the Muller defence then you need to make a more puerile pun and include his master of comedy face gif/image at the bottom of your post

Non-Liverpool related but apparently Arsenal are after Aaron Ramsdale, and Sheff Utd are after £30m to £32m for him!

 

A fucking awful keeper who lest we forget has been relegated 2 seasons running with different sides, and it's £30m plus!! Ridiculous, is this the English premium again?

They kept the German lad and sold Martinez last summer. As dumb as transaction as you will find. Ramsdale would be the icing on a very shit cake.

If the best Arsenal can spend >£80m is Ben White (who is decent but they’ve been fleeced there) and Arron Ramsdale, then I think the comments from other posters about “COVID19 / Lack of CL hasn’t effected them” is somewhat dumb. 
 

There are still more holes in that squad than a sieve.

That was supposed to be a sad Muller face. 
Never mind, my pun skills obviously need work.
