If all these clubs want Lukaku then let them cough up 100 million. We're not giving him away!

Agree7 Disagree1

I think Rom is worth about £70M personally. Do you think a punt on Jamie Vardy for about £30M would be a good replacement, he is quick and knows where the goal is. Thoughts.

18 Apr 2017 16:21:39
How do you come to a value of £70m then? How much is Kane worth? How much did Pogba cost?

18 Apr 2017 16:36:08
I like Vardy and you can't argue that he gets goals, but you have to play to his style - balls over the top or in behind.

For me Rom does best with the same style of play but too many times we haven't played those balls this season. I think Sigurdsson would be ideal to sit behind either of them because while I think Ross is a good player, he takes too long to play the ball which gives defenders time to reset. He rarely moves the ball on without four or so touches so I think if we went with a similar style of play if / when Rom leaves, we need a quick-thinking creator in behind them.

Davies is starting to look like he has the instinct to play those types of balls through, but expecting him to do it with 38 league games plus domestic cups and European trips on a Thursday night starting from June is too much.

18 Apr 2017 18:30:11
Really be pleased if we get 75mil plus for Lukaku. I know he would be extremely difficult for us to replace but in reality someone is 9 times out of 10 only worth what someone else is willing to pay. Simple supply and demand. He cannot be compared to Pogba as the latter was already going to guarentee a huge % in shirt sales on signing for Utd. (Lukaku doesn't have a signed boot deal) which I really do believe is a factor in where he ends up. He is completely unproven at CL level, has flattered to deceive at International tournaments and 'on paper' is a classic Flat Track Bully'. If he goes he will miss us as much as we will miss him whatever happens. Hope he stays.

18 Apr 2017 23:37:25
Investment in Pogba was more than footballing reasons. He's a marketing machine. Hard to compare him and any other player.

19 Apr 2017 09:27:15
it was just my personal opinion Brian, I think £70M is about right, but who knows if Chelsea and Man U buy another top striker who will put an offer in for him? PSG, Barcelona or Real haven't shown any interest and apart from China (which I think would be footballing suicide for him) I don't know who else could afford him.

19 Apr 2017 09:32:42
£100m for Rom is about right he's 23 he's only going to get better. That's at least 7 years at the top for him. That's just under 15m a year for a goal scoring machine!
So cough up if you want him!
We don't sell on the cheap anymore!
Rooney left on the cheap all them years ago!
You want Lukaku you have to pay what we want if you want him this summer!

18 Apr 2017 00:26:40
Eds is there any efc interest in Leon goretzka?

{Ed002's Note - Leon Goretzka was of interest to Southampton but Schalke said they had intention of selling in the short-term but he has been reluctant to listen to offers of a new contract and they are now willing to listen to offers. Juventus are struggling to get their first choice option midfield for this summer and are thought to be returning to Leon Gor made approaches to his club or agent. Arsenal might well look to him in the summer if they cannot get their preferred target - which is looking unlikely right now.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Apr 2017 18:21:53
Hi Ed's, my brother is based over in France and has mentioned Nicholas Pepe to me, he plays for Angers. Do we hold any interest, bit of a player I believe although he says that Lookman would possibly be a 'work in progress' to Pepe?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, I explained this in the Sharkopod. However, Hull are also interested, as are Lille, Newcastle and Lyon.}.

18 Apr 2017 21:28:21
Thanls Ed, apologies I'm new to this and unsure of 'Sharkpod' I will get to know soon I hope . Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Try searching on Sharkopod Blu1.}

19 Apr 2017 10:41:22
Ed, you mentioned above that Arsenal may go for Goretzka if they don't get their preferred target. Can I ask who Arsenal's preferred target is?

{Ed002's Note - Try the Arsenal page.}

19 Apr 2017 11:30:28
Will do. Thanks for the reply.

17 Apr 2017 22:14:22
Saturday - Ross Barkley's passion going nowhere. Sign him up and give the lad the armband!
Michael Keane - Sign him up
Saturday - Goalkeeper=evident issue - can't stress enough, sign Jack Butland at whatever cost.
Finally, we shouldn't be resigned to losing Rom, he has a contract for another 2 seasons make him stay one more season. In order to make champions league next season we need him!

Agree5 Disagree4

18 Apr 2017 14:12:04
Exactly what i said last week. If he goes it is on our terms - ie £100m or thereabouts.

His value may drop somewhat by end of next season but if we get UCL then maybe he stays. And if he doesn't the asking price will still be in the region of what Chelsea are apparently talking about now (or at least the media is)

18 Apr 2017 15:08:13
It is just a starting point for negotiations. we will probably end up with about £70 million. After all, it is a game.

18 Apr 2017 20:19:18
It may be just a game to you but to a lot of blues it's a lot more than a game and to me it is certainly not just a game.

{Ed025's Note - he means a game between the buyer and the seller i suspect OL and hes right, its a game where the buyer wants to pay as little as possible and the seller is trying to get as much as he can, i also think milomj is just about spot on with his guess on the final price mate..

17 Apr 2017 19:27:42
Hi Ed what do you make of the Echo saying Everton have put a £100 million price tag on Rom, is it a statement saying he is going nowhere and will be honouring his contract, or is it to put off major suitors, this could all end in tears, GuernseyBlue.

{Ed025's Note - i dont know what to make of it GB, it seems its to put suitors off but do we really want him to stay if he does not want to be here?, i would prefer us to sell and use the money to invest in a quality replacement myself mate..

Agree1 Disagree1

17 Apr 2017 20:02:32
If rom stays we wil still sign Rooney and William jose as both deals are likely.

17 Apr 2017 20:16:36
I suspect it's just to try and hike up the price for when suitors do come in for him. If we say £70m, the bids will start at £45m, so maybe saying 100 will mean they start at 70?

17 Apr 2017 22:56:11
Agree Ander, papers keep saying £60 million so By saying £100 million we will not get that but making it clear he will not be going for the £60 million banded about.

17 Apr 2017 19:51:47
Thanks Ed agree with you completely, GuernseyBlue.

17 Apr 2017 23:46:41
I agree to a point Ed in as much as if he wants to go, let him go. The boy has made no secret of his intentions and has been straight up with club and supporters. Now it's time for EFC to be staight up with any prospective suitors, it's £100m or he doesn't go. Never mind "This is the starting price" let's go on from there, take it or leave it.
Pogba went for £89m and he doesn't score goals so £100m for Rom seems about right.

{Ed025's Note - in todays market its not that outlandish mike, goalscorers are the holy grail and say what you like about his overall game but the guy does know where the net is mate..

18 Apr 2017 00:39:12
There is no doubting Lukaku has talent and why shouldn't people pay the money for such talent, show how much they value him as a player and Lukaku should be proud we value him so high.

18 Apr 2017 08:04:35
When you go about telling all who will listen that you arare world class then expect a world class price tag to be put in your head. Personally I can't see us getting more than £60m for him but tbh I would rather take the money and move on, he has made it clear we are not his future.

18 Apr 2017 09:19:16
Lets not forget Everton were prepared to pay £28m when no one else would, we have developed the player over the last couple of seasons and although not the finished article a much better player now!
I think a compromise would be made but really hope the lad could give us another season or two as I feel the club is heading for better times ahead!

{Ed002's Note - Everton had their chance to have him sign a new contract and the club blew it. He wants to leave, Everton can stop that and then have a disgruntled player on their hands who could potentially see his contract out and leave for nothing.}

18 Apr 2017 13:12:00
its a catch 22 Ed002 let's hope an amicable resolution is forthcoming.

{Ed002's Note - Let's hope so.}

17 Apr 2017 10:11:31
Hello ed

Are we still interested in martina at saints? We need a RB but surely this guy is not good enough if he is 3rd choice at Southampton. I know we nearly got him in summer and now he would be a free but surely we have moved on from lars Jacobsen type freebies.

{Ed025's Note - trippier at spurs has been looked at jbg, whether or not they would sell is another matter, martina would be very unlikely as i see it mate..

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Apr 2017 10:56:09
Keep in mind that this is going to be competition for seamus. We aren't likely to get a top class rb just to sit on the bench. Either we go for a really promising youngster, which will depend on what's expected from people like kenny, or we get a solid back up.

16 Apr 2017 21:34:00
Ed, do you happen to believe that the interest in siggurdson is as a replacement for ross if he goes? Or would we be looking to bring him in anyway. I know both him and ross have played wide positions on occasions and competition is obviously a good thing but for the rumored amounts, i can't help but feel we should be focusing else where. That's not intended to take away from the player, iv rated him for a long time and thought he never got the chance at spurs really.

{Ed025's Note - im a big fan of gylfi myself cropper and feel that the intention is for him to join regardless of ross,s situation mate..

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Apr 2017 23:02:19
Thanks for the answer. His set pieces alone can win games. Would be a good problem to have i suppose.

{Ed025's Note - im sure others will be interested cropper so we need to get a rattle on mate..

17 Apr 2017 12:13:28
Gylfi is for me an upgrade on Ross. He should be signed in the summer because he is the quality we're in need of. I've watched him live a few times this season and trust me if we can get him we should. This guy has done it in the prem for years and still has a long contract left in him.

Ross can learn a lot from him too so would like them both. And if/ when lukaku leaves, we will need his goals to add to whatever striker is signed to replace him as the new striker will not score as many as lukaku does atm.

15 Apr 2017 13:59:51
Karen Brady has said in her column (not sure who she writes for, seen an article on ssn website) that West Ham have tried to sign Rom twice from us. She added that he has made it clear that he wants champs league football. Any truth to the bids ed or are the hammers just trying to gee up their own supporters by making out they are trying to sign top players? Of all the teams he has been linked with, I've never heard of WH making any type of offer.

{Ed002's Note - Once I can account for but it was a whilew ago. He won't be moving to West Ham.}

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Apr 2017 12:16:40
Cheers for the reply ed002. I never expected him to go there just didn't recall them actively pursuing Rom.

15 Apr 2017 11:40:27
Does AC Milan's new financial power mean we could see them target a couple of our players? Ref. to Lukaku/ Deulofeu.

{Ed002's Note - Gerard Deulofeu is of interest to them but not Lukaku. They have other striker targets.}

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Apr 2017 00:53:16
Just been told by a friend of mine who has close ties to Everton that barkley will sign his new contract.

Agree3 Disagree4

15 Apr 2017 06:36:15
Hope your right but can't help but think with all the crap that's following him around at the min will make his mind up for him to leave and start a fresh elsewhere.

15 Apr 2017 23:14:20
I believe he'll sign a new contract tbh.
Even more so after today!

14 Apr 2017 12:28:12
I believe we should give ed2 a little break (think his head will explode) and talk about something other than Rom for a bit.

7 games to go. Pretty much assured of no worse than 7th. Do we start blooming some of the more promising kids, or will rk buy ready made replacements over the summer (he's done it at other clubs)?

I hope we give the youth a chance because just because we have money don't mean we need to spend it, if the kids are good enough.

{Ed033's Note - Well you know what they say; Rom wasn't built in a day.

Agree3 Disagree0

14 Apr 2017 14:41:20
Be careful what you ask for GeoffJohno. Think for a moment what you have just asked for, no summer signings instead let our youth play.

Whilst most of us like to see our youth rising through the ranks I don't think many of us actually believe we have enough ready to play 1st team football on a regular basis.

We are a club that has attracted many international players to play for us or players who have hit the international stage whilst playing for us, now with all the best will in the world we will not get that many coming through the ranks.

For any team to be able to promote youngsters to the high standard we the supporters expect and demand we need seasoned players to show them how things are done. Seasoned and better players mean new signings. Don't stop signing players until a good one emerges from the youth side.

14 Apr 2017 18:22:04
Signings need to be made and if a youth player impresses and is good enough, like Davies, I think they will be given a chance.

14 Apr 2017 21:02:57
Rom wants a move. Kept that one quiet.

{Ed025's Note - love it baz..

15 Apr 2017 09:03:31
It's fine to give youth a chance. But the reality is they need to be as good as our aspirations if CL. Let's be honest. If we focused just on youth coming through we will linger mid table. We will need good signings to offset the deficiency that comes from having too much youth and that's experience and a little guile. This league already has six teams capable of CL qualification. For us to make it seven we will need some top signings of our own.
