Norwich have just pulled off one of the shock signings of the window for sure!

Be interesting to see how Milot Rashica does in the prem, especially considering the level of clubs that were supposedly after him in previous windows.


1.) 22 Jun 2021 18:41:56
I remember one of the Eds wanting us to sign him not so long ago, great business for them. Hope he does well!


2.) 22 Jun 2021 19:42:43
Or a repeat of Ricky van Wolfswinkel?


3.) 22 Jun 2021 20:50:40
Wow that’s a brilliant signing for Norwich.


4.) 22 Jun 2021 21:17:45
Circa 9 million as well nothing in this day and age.


5.) 23 Jun 2021 13:58:16
Werder Bremen had an awful year and were relegated. His value seemed to have dropped also the last couple years, and obviously, that price took a hit from C.V. too. Still, an interesting move for Norwich.

Hi Ed002, seen some suggestions that Alexander Isak could be a target for Liverpool.

He looks like he'd be very expensive and would surely join as a starter. Do you have any knowledge on the player and any potential approaches?

{Ed002's Note - Alexander Isak (S) Michael Zorc wants to take him back from Real Sociedad regardless of any different wishes of the coach at Borussia Dortmund. Barcelona see him as a possible addition. Manchester City have a desire to add the player as a squad member but not as a Aguero replacement. Real Sociedad have financial woes and may take the opportunity to profit but ideally want to remove the buy back clause and keep him another year. Liverpool have shown no interest.}


1.) 09 Jun 2021 11:24:00
Thanks for this. Informative as always.

Looks like a non-starter atm then.


 

 

25 May 2021 15:18:44
Looks like LFC are not signing Kabak afterall. Fabrizio has confirmed this is the case, he'll be sent back to Schalke.

He's also confirmed the signing of Konate, medicals completed etc and just waiting for Lpool to pay his release clause, a quoted figure of €35million. So not done but obviously if a termination clause is activated then they have to release the player (which is what is happening here) .

First signing of the season looks to be done then.


1.) 25 May 2021 18:23:34
Didn't he say we wouldn't pay the fee we agreed and would look tk have it lowered?


2.) 25 May 2021 18:31:51
I know a few are thinking we are making 3-5 signings this year but I think we'll only sign Konate and 1 midfielder. Money is tight after all.

I'd be happy with that providing we get to keep the remaining first team players.


3.) 25 May 2021 18:32:32
Adamski RBL want the fee paid in full and it's non negotiable mate.


4.) 25 May 2021 19:11:41
Yep has to be paid in full and that could well be the only player we can afford atm. Any other buys will likely come from sales or clubs taking long payment terms. Shame we couldn’t get £25m for Gini.


5.) 25 May 2021 19:45:58
I was talking about the 18m we agreed to pay to Shalke, seems like we will try to negotiate a smaller fee.


6.) 25 May 2021 19:46:34
Also there is zero chance we don't sign a forward after this last season.


7.) 25 May 2021 20:02:51
I doubt we will even bother negotiating a smaller fee, I don’t se the point.


8.) 25 May 2021 19:33:02
He has already passed a medical? That can’t be right Ed’s?

{Ed002's Note - One of the reasons he was forced to make a ste
Ate meat and lied.}


9.) 25 May 2021 22:38:48
I really doubt we will sign Kabak Adamski.


10.) 26 May 2021 15:41:26
Seems Konate is the CB of choice, Kabak did ok but never showed too much for me to suggest he could be top, I hope he does however and thank him for his efforts.


 

 

22 May 2021 11:34:15
Hi Ed002, any news on Bissouma? I know you said Liverpool were interested and had spoken to his representatives (I think) but I've been hearing that the player is drawing closer to a move to Arsenal.

No idea if true, just thought I'd pick your brains.

Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - He is one of three options for Arsenal and they have to move players on and certainly don't have any agreement with Brighton at this time.}


1.) 22 May 2021 14:11:26
If arsenal were to move for him would they be favourites to land him as apparently from what I have gathered ge would prefer to move there 🤔 I would love him at anfield if possible.


2.) 22 May 2021 17:01:37
It would be just like us to decide not to make a move for Bissouma, keep Keita and then bring in Ramsey on huge wages just to troll ourselves.


3.) 22 May 2021 19:00:48
He shares agent with pepe maybe he is friends with him.


 

 

24 Mar 2021 16:00:13
Money is obviously an issue at the moment for Liverpool with regards to transfers but seen a figure circa £19m being touted as a release clause for Patson Daka.

Became aware of him when Haaland was first getting noticed and he's had an excellent season, allbeit in the Austrian league.

Any confirmation on this? I recall Haaland joining Dortmund for a similarly 'low' fee and think that, given the situation, that would be a good deal.

Please bare in mind I'm not considering whether the player would be interested due to limited playing time etc but was just wondering, on a financial basis, whether Daka would be viable and the potential fee.

{Ed002's Note - He certainly won't be moving for £19M.}


1.) 24 Mar 2021 18:31:29
19.5 million? Lol. More like 40 million you think Ed's?


2.) 24 Mar 2021 20:25:41
whatever he goes for it will surely be more in range with our typical kind of signing versus buying Haaland or Mbappe, as much as I'd love Mbappe in Liverpool red!


3.) 24 Mar 2021 20:33:32
Every one could see Haaland was going to be a top player so how did Dortmund get him for 19.5 million, have never understood that transfer?

{Ed002's Note - You are on the wrong page, this is the Liverpool page.}


4.) 24 Mar 2021 22:19:02
Acered - I feel like in general German football just does things different.

Little question regarding market values.

Obviously the general public have 'Transfermarkt' and the CIES to determine the market value for players. Do clubs use these systems or their own profiling in order to determine the overall value of a player? Also what are the biggest factors that influence this.

For example I feel different clubs would have a different valuation for certain players. Eg to Liverpool Sancho would have a higher value than he would to Bayern Munich, as he is homegrown in the Prem, something of little relevance to Bayern (at least I think) .

Does off field antics and image also have an impact on these market values? For example Ronaldo moved to Juve for a fee you'd consider relatively low (especially considering the calibre of player)


1.) 23 Jun 2021 18:36:09
Would he not be homegrown in the Bundesliga instead of the Prem?


2.) 23 Jun 2021 18:52:57
You're right, Jadon:

"A Home Grown Player, as defined by the Premier League, is a player who: (a) is 21 or older on January 1 of the year in which that season begins; and (b) spent three years between the ages of 16 and 21 with a team in the English football League system. "

He was born on 25/ 3/ 00 and joined BD on 31 Aug 17 so he spent 1 year, 5 months in the EPL from the age of 16 upwards.

As he is already 21, he would not be classed as HG in the EPL.

Not sure if the Bundesliga have a similar classification, but German clubs look to have a much higher proportion of Germans playing for them than EPL clubs (certainly top 10) have British players.


3.) 23 Jun 2021 19:12:27
UEFA defines a Home Grown player as anyone who is at a club in that country for 3 years between the ages of 15 or 21. So under that, Jadon is correct and his namesake is Home Grown for clubs in Germany, not England, as he moved to Dortmund on the 31st of August 2017, only 2 years and 5 months after his 15th birthday.

Interestingly the Premier League website just says 3 years under 21 counts as Home Grown, in which case he would be HG for Premier League registry. I'm guessing this is just the website being imprecise. I know there are some differences in the registry rules between the PL and continental competitions (no club trained requirement for the PL, U21s need to have been at the club at least 2 years to be eligible for the 'B list' in Europe, but not in the PL), but different definitions of Home Grown seems a bit much.


 

 

21 Jun 2021 15:17:44
Judging by that supposed 100mil bid upfront (with players to be included) for Kane, City have an absolute warchest and are ready to spend big after the Euros. It's going to be tough to top them next season if they pull off that move.

Is this true Ed's? A wealth of journalists including Fabrizio and those at the guardian have reported a 100mil bid with players to be added on (maybe Gabriel Jesus or Laporte) .

{Ed002's Note - It is not exactly like that but broadly true. It rather depends how Kane himself pushes his desire for a move, and also if another side my become involved. This has been dealt with on other pages.}


1.) 21 Jun 2021 15:32:27
Not sure he suits City, watching him try and come deep to get the ball and have little to no pace or great ability to take a player on, don't see him fitting into there system and it doesn't worry me what City do, if we get the correct backing, 2/ 3 signings for us and being injury free, we are still there main competition and a major force.


2.) 21 Jun 2021 15:36:00
Thanks for that Ed002.

Has Kane shown any desire to force a move away from Spurs? I feel that might be the only way he gets his move since Levy will be rather reluctant to let his prized asset go (then again this is gut instinct I obviously have absolutely no clue) .

That being said the supposed deal offered by city: £100mil up front and potentially a £50-60mil CB would surely be tempting.

{Ed002's Note - This is not the correct page to be discussing it but Kane will want to play at the highest level very soon. I have dealt with this elsewhere and he will have several options.}


3.) 21 Jun 2021 15:46:41
I agree in some ways Lancaster.

I understand what you are saying but Kane is a match winner and an absolutely outstanding footballer. City lost a player able to score 20+ goals a season with Aguero and could replace him with an even better player. As for his work rate etc, he lacks pace but makes up for it with his overall ability and positioning on and off the ball.

Even if this move does fall through it shows the funds they have to contribute, undoubtedly we'll see maybe a LB, CB, CDM and ST come in this window for them.

With Liverpool it's about bolstering the squad to get it to as high of a level as possible so that the drop off from starting XI to bench isn't as prevalent.


4.) 21 Jun 2021 16:03:07
Thanks Ed002, I'll have a look on some other pages also to see who else is interested.


5.) 21 Jun 2021 16:11:47
They will always have money

So will United and Chelsea

We have less money but we have Klopp and Edwards and we have shown we can mix it with them.

Kane may well leave Spurs but he doesn’t suit us so it’s no big deal to us. He hasn’t been playing well for a while now. Who knows if he will fit in with Citeh’s style of play?

{Ed025's Note - he will fit in anyones style of play tommy, the guy is quality mate..


6.) 21 Jun 2021 16:19:11
Man City won’t be able just to keep adding expensive players there will be a limit. They can only put 11 players on the pitch. Granted it will be hard to compete with them over 4 competitions.


7.) 21 Jun 2021 16:21:59
LR I agree with you it is about what we do. We have to keep our big players fit and much will depend on our next signing or 2. If we bring in the right midfield player we will be just fine. Our fist 11 will still be the best in Europe.

{Ed025's Note - "still be the best in europe"?...your having a giraffe aren,t you mark..


8.) 21 Jun 2021 16:41:24
Well much will depend on players returning to form and if the majority of them do then yes of course we have.
Allison, Trent, Konate or Gomez, VVD Robbo then in front Fabs and Hendo. Even you must agree that is by a distance the best. Add to that Mane, Salah and Jota and the new signing and my point is proved.
City get a maximum 4 in our starting 11.

{Ed025's Note - and you get a maximum of 4 in theirs mark, we have not seen how konate and this mysterious new signing will fare either mate..


9.) 21 Jun 2021 17:38:12
Kane's style doesn't suit us haha lol

Kane would finish the season on 20+ assists, can u imagine the balls he would be pinging for Salah and Mane, they would have a field day.

I know he's not coming here but I agree with Ed025 he would fit almost any team he is so good.


10.) 21 Jun 2021 17:41:07
@markp, those red tinted glasses are certainly on - Dias?

Mane and Jota no chance for making the combined 11 unless it was Mane from two seasons ago.


11.) 21 Jun 2021 17:55:27
Exactly Sean, Mane will have to get his title winning form back. But VVD, Robbo, Fabs, Salah, Trent and Allison those 6 are in and from then we are just waiting to see What Mane turns up but i am pretty Confident when he does he will be well ahead of Sterling.
It’s the squad I worry about not the first 11.


12.) 21 Jun 2021 18:10:17
Can’t see City stopping their spending and adding players….


13.) 21 Jun 2021 17:53:29
Hi eds2 can you tell me what other pages this has been on as I’ve looked at MC&TH pages and can’t see anything?
Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - What are you looking for? And why are you asking on the Liverpool page.}


14.) 21 Jun 2021 22:25:38
Kane will smash 40 playing for City.


15.) 21 Jun 2021 22:53:09
I don’t think Kane will go. He will cost £150m plus all fees and wages it’s a quarter of a billion investment.


16.) 22 Jun 2021 05:29:59
Longthing- have a look on the City page from about 2 weeks ago there’s a really really really really long post by Ed002 going thru all City’s rumours and there’s a section on Kane there.


 

 

18 Jun 2021 16:22:37
All in all if we end the window having signed Konate, Neuhaus and Malen I'd be pretty content with that.

A bonus would be to shift the likes of perhaps Naby also and use that money to sign another midfielder on top of Neuhaus.

Perhaps we'd see something along the lines of:

Outgoing: Shaqiri, Origi, Grujic, Wilson, Awoniyi, Naby, Rhys (Loan)

Incoming: Konate, Neuhaus, Malen with maybe another midfielder?

It would certainly put the squad in a much better place. Malen, Neuhaus and Konate are all young players.


1.) 18 Jun 2021 17:21:04
Minamino, Awoniyi, Davies and Phillips onto that aswell hopefully.


2.) 18 Jun 2021 22:16:46
Why would you let go of Phillips and keep injury prone matip and Gomez? It doesn’t make sense to me, Phillips can at least play most of a season to a decent standard. Williams needs a loan, and one of matip, Gomez or Davies need to be sold also. 4-5 CB should be fine, keep Phillips, he done the best out of the lot without vvd holding his hand.


3.) 19 Jun 2021 03:53:01
Phillips had an excellent season and proved he is good enough, I’d be very wary of letting him leave unless the money offered is just too good.


 

 

17 Jun 2021 15:10:58
Leicester have apparently bid for Patson Daka according to Fabrizio Romano. If Liverpool truly are interested and want the player they best get a move on!


1.) 17 Jun 2021 15:57:57
I don't see any forward or Midfield coming without selling few of our players.

Their was clear room for defender we got one in midfield and forward areas we are badly stocked with players.

{Ed0666's Note - I do


2.) 17 Jun 2021 16:17:36
I get that ed but not without selling few of them.

{Ed0666's Note - I’m pretty sure they would know whose leaving mate hence them targeting players for certain positions.


3.) 17 Jun 2021 16:22:43
Our interest in the moment is in a better player.


4.) 17 Jun 2021 17:24:08
Thx Ed666 mate 😁👍.


 

 

11 Jun 2021 13:40:02
With regards to this whole repeated questions fiasco I've got an idea that could work.

Set up a Google drive document and simply put the names of the players linked and Ed002's description or detail of the transfer. Then simply update it dependant on each target.

Minimal effort also as it's a copy and paste job. Would also provide a comprehensive list of every target and potential updates. Just have a moderator of it, could be anyone and all the Ed's on the document and then attach it in a separate tab at the top.

Or am I too optimistic ;)

{Ed002's Note - Not going to happen.}


1.) 11 Jun 2021 13:58:19
OP IMO, the answer is simple. If a rumour looks weird to you then, ask yourself whether it will look weird to the Eds if you posted. If the answer is yes without equivocation then, you know what NOT to do. Don't post it here. Just my opinion cos that is what I do.


2.) 11 Jun 2021 13:57:47
I'm no salesman, although technically it's part of my job.

I'm guessing it's not due to logistical reasons.

If I were to create a word document with all of Ed002's responses on transfers and then send that in for it to be linked on the page would that be ok?

{Ed002's Note - I'll simply stop then.}


3.) 11 Jun 2021 14:56:02
I think everybody with a transfer related question direct them to ED025 because he loves getting them. Ha ha.


4.) 12 Jun 2021 11:50:05
There are loads of ideas that would make finding info on here far more efficient and up to speed with being 2021. But we need to respect that that isn't happening for whatever reason.

Net effect of that of course is that we are reliant on collective common sense and perception of individuals on this site. so. is what it is. can expect lots more 'silly' questions and probably more up and down interactions with eds, especially #2!

Two reports, one from Christian Falk and another from a reputable German source.

It must be said that the reputable source broke the info and Christian Falk then weighed in confirming it was the case.

Note it says we've spoken to Neuhaus and his representatives however no concrete negotiations with Gladbach yet, likely to be concluded AFTER the Euros.

{Ed0666's Note - If this is legit I’m gonna do a tiny jig of delight. Could be exactly what we need if we don’t get bissouma. It must mean we’re getting rid of a few because he would be the Gini replacement and won’t come cheap. Thiago, Fab and Nehaus. Now that’s a winning midfield on paper and let’s not forget Hendo. I’m salivating right now

Hey Alonso, Fabrizio confirmed today definite interest from Liverpool and Arsenal. Says that he's not first choice for Arsenal (looking at another style of midfielder) I suspect Buendia, Odegaard, Aouar etc.

Ed002 may I ask what sides are interested and the two serious options that Bissouma has? I didn't realise negotiations had moved so that concrete options were available. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Why do I have to keep explaining that Liverpool and Arsenal are very interested. It is particularly tiresome.}
