Did initially but im starting to think that if Koeman, Allardyce and now Silva dont fancy him then i'm willing to go with there judgement that he aint all that. The last one is based on the premise that the 'rumours' are true and we will let him go for 18 million

At this moment in time, IF we can sell Lookman for ~18 mil and bring in Malcom for ~30 mil, I'd be over the moon with that. Its all relative I guess. On a better day, we could perhaps get 25 for him, maybe even a 30-35 if a City or silly team came in, but its all relative to how much a replacement would be; as you would think Malcom would be going for a lot more than ~30 mil. Its not desperation time just yet, but we clearly need a creative/attacking spark up top, a left back and a commanding centre back. If we can get a quality winger in for 12 mil net, and say Tierney for 25 mil then its a no brainer for me. Even if we just then added a big, decent centre back I'd be happy with that, and see how our mid get on under Silva? Or if we are really ambitious go all out for a top 6 level box to box midfield monster. I rekcon things will start moving in the next few days... I hope so, as, just for once, it would be nice to go into a season mostly with a settled first team.

I think silva issue with Lookman is probably because Lookmans head has already been turned.
Who knows what he's been like in training.
He was probably the one youngster for me who looked like he could go on to be a top player and we allowed him to go out on loan..ffs

Absolutely no indication silva doesnít fancy lookman.

Aye, by now, Silva would have seen more of Lookman than all of us. He will see him in a light that all of us dont, he will see him in training, he would have seen him around the club and learned his feelings on playing for us or leaving. He would have talked to him lots, on and off the pitch. There is no way, he wont know the ability of the lad, and that he has the potential to be great. He will either keep him, or only let him go for a decent wedge, you would think. Then only if we have a replacement lined up (a Malcom, Lozano, Richarlison, etc). Got to be north of 20 mil surely, if its the latter...

I'd be concerned if we sold Lookman in fairness. I can't see any justification for it, even if we were to sign another wide player. He's clearly quality, and has a strong likelihood of developing into a top wide player.

Not interested if he wants off, before anyone throws that argument in. You're a management team. You keep him, build a relationship with him and show him why he should stay here, by playing him and developing him.

One other point is that I've seen no actual indication from anywhere that we want to sell him. So I remain hopeful.

It has a slight whiff of possibly happening. More so than I possibly initially thought. You feel like when clubs repeatedly come back, they've had some encouragement to do so from someone significant, be it the player himself/agent or even the selling club potentially.

I still think Brands likes him, no reason to think Silva doesn't either. That said, they may feel if they got a decent offer they could bring in a player further along in their development perhaps?

Despite a decent loan spell he hasn't as yet proven himself a PL regular. Dunno. Still think it's unlikely, but I'd not be surprised if they've been given reason to keep this pursuit going, which isn't ideal but not irreversible either.

My fear is that he does seem to be one of our more sellable assets

Don't know about that. I think making a third bid would be a fairly clear indication Leipzig have not been told point blank that he's not for sale. At a minimum that would suggest Everton might be open to selling him (at the right price), even if we don't necessarily 'want' to.

Nobody at Everton has stated 20million is our asking price (we best not have anyway) pathetic price for his potential, Maddison joined Leicester from Norwich for 25 ffs.

He's not for sale, they need to fuck off and stop thinking theyre a big draw, because they're not.
