I've seen a few links to Sanchez today. Anyone know if there's anything to get excited about?

Would be made up if we signed him.

My point was where did they come from? Haven't even seen the bitters linked.

And as for not needing him, it seems the manager wants another centre back hence the interest in Lovren no?

Whether you rate him or not is a different matter entirely.

I don't know, I don't follow Evertons transfer activities

The manager wants a CB that will improve the CB's that we have yes.

With that in mind, that would rule out Caulker.

I thought the only problem with the Moreno deal was not the amount but how we pay it they want more up front and we want to pay less now , as for Caulker he ain't that bad.

Sevilla have dicked us around by trying to create an auction so its only right that we make them sweat a little, if Moreno wants the deal to happen then he needs to make it clear to his club that he doesnt want to join anyone else.

Agree with this, and with the pound being so strong at the moment, if we have offered £13.5m that is 17m euros - a lot of money for a young, relatively unproven player.

I do wonder where any new attacking player will fit in.
Suarez
Sturridge
Sterling

Who do we buy better than those 3?

Coutinho
Henderson
Gerrard

Who can we get better than those 3?

Really think we have a top top front 6. As much as we wanted 'first teamers' this window i actually dont think we will get anyone as good as we have.

For me the only player we have been linked with that displaces our front 6 is Sanchez.

You can't guarantee all 6 will be fit/not suspended/in form for every single game next season though, so you need players on the same level so we can swap and change and make sure people are rested when needed or we don't see a drop in overall performance if someone is injured/suspended/out of form.

Every player in there except Suarez can be improved upon.

Realistically, every player except Suarez and Sturridge.

Gerrard is ageing, needs/will need a successor, and will find it hard to repeat last season's performances given his age.

Henderson, for all his improvement, is still incomplete going forwards in comparison to players at our rivals who play the box to box role (Yaya, Ramsey, Fabregas/Matic).

Sterling is one of the best young players in the world, but his end product could still be a tiny bit better and he's young, so he'll have ups and downs and we don't want him burning out.

Coutinho is probably the weakest link. An outstanding player in his own right but he's still raw, doesn't affect matches as much as he will in the future, and he too doesn't need to be tiring himself by playing every game in a very demanding position, which his physique hasn't naturally adapted to through his teenage years.

All four of them could realistically be improved upon.

None are really pressing concerns, although competition/rotation for Coutinho and Sterling is necessary (some already there in the shape of Allen but more depth required).

I agree 20m is too much for a fullback considering our small transfer budget.  However I feel really sorry BR after a tremendous season, still not getting the players he wants.

And there I thought we will get Sanchez  ;D.  For 30m? ;D

Genuine question, how come it is only we who are fucked over by selling clubs? Agreed fee, then club decided to increase fee or alter payment structure ?
Dont see all this happening with other clubs.
But yeah, in this window, if we want top players, we need to pay what they ask.Lowballing will waste our time. Not saying Moreno is top class btw, always wondered whether we should pay that much for someone still needing to prove a lot.

i'd guess seville are looking at the market and thinking that if southampton can rate shaw at £30m then they can ask more for moreno. 

supply and demand vibes.

this is entirely fair enough: we either pay their asking price, negotiate a compromise or buy someone else.
