    Everton moving for Che Adams.

    Highly doubt we will get him. You tend to have a window of opportunity to get certain players and if you miss it then you have no chance.

    For Adams, ours was January.

    Not too bothered now as I feel that Adams was a short term fix.
    Hoping RH gets his main targets in the summer and I have a strong feeling it’s Augustin and another German player.

    Is Augustin good? I've not see much of him, but he isn't a regular at Leipzig.

    Good luck to him, can't see him being a regular their - Richarlison, Walcott, Bernard, Lookman, Calvert Lewin, all vying for similar positions.

    Or we could just take Lookman off their hands instead..

    There are some brilliant players in the championship. 100% should be looking at.

    Jarrod Bowen
    Daniel James
    Che Adams
    Neil Maupay

    The Sun (yes, I know) reports we are still interested in Che Adams https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/footb...ham-che-adams/

    We did agree a fee with Che Adams, and got FL dispensation for Austin to go the other way. But Austin pulled the plug due to wages and we weren't willing to pay the full difference

    If so, that's a real shame. Hope we can close the deal in the summer.

    Apparently his full name is Che Everton Adams - although he was born in Leicester it sounds like he's an Everton fan. Now if that is true and if Everton want him in the summer its probably a done deal. We missed our chance back in January it seems.

    I'd happily take Maupay and/or Ollie Watkins from Brentford instead though.

    But I wouldn't be surprised if we sign Jean-Kevin Augustin from RB Leipzig and Davie Selke from Hertha Berlin if we are looking at strikers that have played under Hassenhuttl before and done well in his system.

    Signing up young talent from the championship is definitely a smart idea.

    Hell, YES ... but he'll have other suitors.

    James, Bowen, Maupay, Wakins and Adams are all a step in the right direction in regards to transfer policy I think, would be nice to get a couple of them in.

    Swansea supporting colleague was also telling me about their CB Joe Rodon, 6'4" with a bit of flair on the ground rather than just a lump.

    Hasenhuttl today confirmed in press conference his interest in Che Adams.


  21. #174

    Positive in terms of the profile of player we are targetting. I read earlier this week that Everton also want Adams. If that is the case then it will be nigh on impossible to get him, but their interest may not materialise.

    The two big difficulties will be:

    1. Getting rid of our deadwood: Forster, Long, Austin, Carillo, Hoedt, Boufal, Clasie, Targett, McQueen etc

    2. Having the same chumps negotiating with other clubs as we had in our last few failed transfer windows.

    Big investment, top half finishes even after poor seasons, new stadium on the way and ultimately: will pay bigger wages.

    Depends really. Everton’s owners have chucked an absolute boatload of cash at that squad and achieved bugger all, they now just have the highest wage bill in the fight for 7th. They might decide they’ve spent enough and want to tighten the wage bill a bit, which puts us back on a level playing field.

Ours will likely remain at 19m for the foreseeable future, and that is not a criticism for me tbh.

    Again, wages too- they must have a couple of players on a 100k per week, I don't think we have broken that barrier, so yeah they could offer a hefty wage- although I remember reading in January how that Moshiri bloke doesn't have as much money as assumed

    OR- maybe he will just be attracted by the dugouts

    Not worked out too well for the first, bit part player now and Koeman was a disaster but not a player so not really relevant.
    Might depend on if the player is just a money grabber or wants to play regular.
    Everton have splashed a hell of a lot of money and are not really any better than you would expect are they.... overrated tbh
    and two 40 million pound players who aren't all that is not good investment is it?
    Lets not forget Bolasie for 30 mill too... fools and their money up there

    I doubt Adams would consider how much Everton paid for Bolasie when deciding whether to move there.

    Ultimately they have had two poor seasons resulting in top 10 finishes whilst we have been nearly relegated twice.

    That, plus higher wages on offer would make it hard to justify joining Saints over Everton (should that be the choice he has).

    While our overall wage bill is pretty generous as a result of loading up on mediocrity, pay ranges are quite narrow which limits our ability to go after players in demand. There are rumours that this will change but I'll believe when I see it.

    We're certainly a more attractive proposition than we were under Pellegrino but players will need more proof than a mini-revival over half a season to accept that we've turned a corner and we're good for players career progression again. Even then Everton continue to benefit from a certain cachet, however mystifying it is to the rest of us.

    Will he make the choice of where he is most likely to play or go where the pay is biggest, who knows?
    but it certainly isn't "near impossible" he would join us is it.

    They have thrown money at a futile attempt to crash the top six, it wont happen but swoon over them if you like

    Cost of season tickets. Style of strip. Pre match entertainment. Location of pre season. Owner. Players. Weather. Still plenty of things for them to ***** and moan about.

    I'd say you would be pretty justified to moan about the owner and many of the players over the last few years.

    I certainly hope that first sentence is correct.

    Money will always talk and to that extent we can pretty much outspend anyone in Europe, outside the Champions League clubs. We managed to attract some pretty highly rated players last summer, despite barely avoiding the drop. If we can finish 7th or 8th for the second half of this season and offload 5 or 6 mediocre players, we should be able to attract 2/3 pretty good ones.

    We all know all our problems would be over if we moved away fans into the corner.

    Worth a crack at Jovic at Frankfurt? Wanted by the big clubs but concerned he might not get the playing time he needs. We could be the leg up for his career. Would mean busting our record transfer fee again though...

    Agreed. Admittedly we're not short at centre mid but McGinn at Villa should also be on our radar.

    A 31 year old on big wages, who's already burned most of his bridges with the fans. Literally nothing, if he was on the wage bill now I'd be trying to offload him in the summer.

    he doesnt fit what ralph says he is looking for in terms of age. That said he was great under poch, undertands pressing well and has great quality. If he came here for a sensible price id have to be in the camp of be cold to him to start but willing to warm up. Pathetic itmay be and i hate myself for typing it! A couple of years out of him (if he could stay fit) would really help us move forward while ralph brings through some younger attacking talent at the same time. Cost wise anything between 8-12 and its a really good deal. No idea though really given age, injuries and the mental transfer market - one year on his contract and needing a move possibly. Ive no idea really- juts more interesting than writing how much i hate him!
