Keep bidding. After what's been done to the Monaco squad eventually Lemar will want to go.
Would probably end up like Delph/Rodwell going to City, just at a higher price. He'd basically just give us another Willian, but we need home-grown players bad.
Telegraph says Liverpool will turn down any Barca offer, Barto needs to **** off and go after a true CM and a backup CB.
That's up to Klopp. Nothing wrong with competition and rotation. There will be a lot more minutes regardless for AOC in front six positions than at Chelsea, and he obviously wants to leave Arsenal.
I think Ox just wants to compete for trophies. I would respect him if he came out and said that. I think wanting to leave has nothing to do with anything else.
How would there be a lot more minutes in Liverpool when he'd likely start at Chelsea and not start at Liverpool? If he wants trophies, he's going to Chelsea.
Leicester apparently interested in Sakho, Mamadou
At Chelsea he is going to start at wing back; a position he doesn't like.
At Liverpool he would have the chance to compete for a spot in the midfield as well as on the wing.
If he goes to Chelsea he is a defender. He doesn't want to be a defense.
There is also no reason Liverpool can't compete for trophies.
Wing-backs aren't truly defenders, they have to be involved in all aspects of the game. RWB is a completely different role than RB. He'd be a backup at all spots at Liverpool, so again, he'd have less minutes at Liverpool.
Shall we compare recent trophies for Liverpool and Chelsea?
Chelsea still want a huge fee for Costa. More than Atletico will spend. No guarantee he gets his move there unless Chelsea sell at a discount just to get rid of him.
Sure. Same with Arsenal. Except Arsenal has actually won trophies recently and Liverpool hasn't.
Comparing Liverpool to Chelsea in terms of title contention likelihood is silly.
If Liverpool and Chelsea wind up both being in for the player, I'll let the player judge.
He's been playing RWB at Arsenal.
After watching the game yesterday in addition to the entire close of Arsenal's last season, he is definitely not suited to it.
Sure but that is the position that he plays at Arsenal and he doesn't like it. If he wanted to play WB he could stay at Arsenal. At Liverpool he gets to be a pure midfielder not a philosophical one. Maybe he values that?
Don't think it's silly at all. Everyone starts the new season at zero points. We will see what happens.
I want Lemar.
NO to Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Wenger isn't capable of teaching the position to players that are not natural to it IMO, and Conte is. He just needs a greater understanding of the position, similar to Moses last season.
But yes Lemar first
He's leaving for either position or guaranteed play time. He's not going to get guaranteed play time at Liverpool so unless he's ok with warming the bench he will most likely go to Chelsea.
Plus London>Liverpool and I bet his girlfriend will have a say in this.
And maybe he values trophies, and not philosophical ones.
I think the trouble is if you're Liverpool, you think he's going to be easily worth that in 2-3 seasons time. I'm not sure they're right, but I'm not sure they're wrong.
With Coutinho money! Yes!
Worked for Alexis. At least for a while.
Maybe he values that Chelsea money?
Only he knows.
I'd be happy with Oxlade, but now that there was a real bid on Lemar it would make me a little sad to get Chambo instead.
