Ragnick has come out and RBL want to sign three players and that lookman wants to leave and go them and are still in talks

Sounds like tapping up, to me.

We all know the club needs to off-load players and bring the ridiculous wage bill down. If no one wants Bolasie, Mirallas etc then maybe we have to swallow some shit and sell players clubs ARE interested in and look to bring in replacements all the whilst continuing to try and flog the shite.

Either that, or he has said he 100% wants to go.

We dig our heels in then; put a high price tag on him or demand a swap deal for one of their players; Forsberg, Yussuf, Upamecano, Orban etc.

Basically, don't be taken for a fucking mug, Everton.

Sounds like Lookman has made his mind up and wants to go.

To me, it sounds like we will sell him if they meet our £20m valuation.

The problem with Lookman, so I have been told, is that he has never liked it in Liverpool, and doesn't want to stay here as he feels he cannot settle. Apparently his attitude all summer has been highly questionable too, with Silva taking offence at it, especially after both Silva and Brands have stated they see him as an important part of the first-team.

That all sounds very plausible.

Brands and Silva are doing their utmost to entice him to stay, but he also feels let down by Koeman and Allardyce and feels he has wasted the last 2 years.

I get the not settling bit but these constant references back to Koeman and Allardyce are tiresome and completely irrelevant.

Only passing on what I have been told.  :thumbsup:

Average weekly wage at Middlesbrough is £20 k, can’t see them willing to pay Bolasie much more than that which would still leave us to cover £50 k, £40 if we’re lucky.

£40k per week and no Bolasie is better than £80k per week and Bolasie.
