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.
Yes, we're being condescending. Yes, that means we're talking down to you.

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

This. Said before maybe we should try and unsettle Leipzig's players.

We should just tell them to fuck off and have do with it. I understand unsettling players goes on all the time but not only do we not want to sell they aren’t offering very much either

To lose a player we don’t want to sell on the cheap would rank amongst our poorest business. Which is a strong contest in recent transfer windows. Also we’d have gone from a ridiculous not taking no for an answer strategy to getting taken advantage of

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

Being able to tempt the player themselves is a different matter but I actually think RBL are ran in the way that every player probably does have a price & they would be confident with their plan B in each position as well as the laundry list of potential targets.

Where did this valuation come from? Archaic Red Wine Pint Man?

They probably need to use the actual phrase "not for sale" for me to believe it personally.

The fact that Leipzig have come in with bids of £12m, £14m and are apparently readying another one suggests to me they haven't said those words to Leipzig either.

Do we know if they have actually made these bids or is it just Twitter gossip. There's a lot written but I don't think I've read anything official out of the club or in the press about any of it really. Apart from Rangnick's naughty comments.

Those bids suggest to me that they are a piss pot team with piss takers in charge of player recruitment

How often do the club (or any) give running commentary on player sales and negotiations?

Especially unpopular ones.
There are only two things I can't stand in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures... and the Dutch.

Or they're run like a proper football club, within their means and have a clear strategy in what they pay and who they bring in. Crazy hey.
