Has any other club apart from Leipzig shown any interest in Lookman ? just asking like.

Not that Iím aware of and Iím sure we would have heard if an English club were in for him, strange really, you would have thought that his agent would have put it out there to generate some interest ?

Why would he make the drop down when heís already proven himself at a higher level?

He might of proven himself in a league that has two dominant teams and a load of dross and if thatís where he wants to stay then up to him, should just put in a transfer request, we take the 20 mill and move on.

That's spectacularly dismissive of the Bundesliga.
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

I donít want to have this discussion again, but can we stop calling every league outside the premier league dross for absolute fucks sake.

Anyway, yeah, just sell him now. Have that 20/25 mil in the pot for January to get somebody better.

Not if the reason he wants to move is because he thinks not only is he likely to get more minutes at Leipzig but also that he's moving to a better team which will regularly compete in Europe.

There's no team in England that fulfils both of those requirements. Clubs lower down the table will know that he's not interested in moving there permanently. Similarly for most of the clubs above us because he's not at that level yet.

It's not really unusual that there aren't links/rumours of other teams really.

Yes, not intended to be that extreme, just meant itís a less competitive league than the Premier League
but sentiment the same, if he wants to go there he should just put in a transfer request and Iím sure that the club will facilitate it. Lukaku took a drop down from Chelsea to West Brom and us before hitting the big time.

I think the lad needs a reality check, reading between the lines it seems like heís got an attitude problem, not good enough to be a regular starter for us or any team above us but seemingly to good to play for a team below our level in the prem or championship

Sell him, buy Lozano.

Richarlison Tosun Lozano

Thatís a 3-season-in master league line up that.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Feels like people have no patience with young players anymore.

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

Yes, we should be patient while he engineers a move away from the club.

I can't see him getting much game time anytime soon the left wing/inside forward is pretty much sewn up by Richarlison and Bernard. I think we need a centre forward much more than a want away winger.

disclaimer: I personally have no knowledge if he wants away.

Take the £20m or whatever it is and bank it. Add it to the pot with cash from Bolasie, Besic, Vlasic and the rest and suddenly our summer looks a whole lot better from a financial as well as a footballing level.

It's only when you look at it like this that our actual spend (not to be a net spend wanker) by the end of the month could well be buttons in Premier League terms if we're successful in moving players on. Take my hat off to Brands for this, shows the value in having a guy in the job who has actually done the role before.
