I think with N’Didi now out until the new year, we’ll go 3 at the back. 

We were 4 atb with ndidi playing as a cb, with evans coming in for him we're more defensively secure than previously so im dont see us switching to 3atb except for games against big 6

Agreed, no need to change from our 4-1-4-1. Mendy has done very well. Obviously we’ll need to rotate when the Europa starts but depending on the strength of our group we might be able to get away with Hamza at DM in Europe, to help keep Mendy fresh for PL games.

If you really want to throw in a name that might tempt Burnley, you could try for Albrighton.  Erik Pieters is our right sided midfield player at the moment.

 

But I still don't think it would work!

If Tarkowski had a 2.5 year contract left, you would be in pole position negotiating Value terms.

 

As his contract runs out June 2022,  his value and with his age taken in account will drop like a stone every decreasing month, I think any deal around £35 million is the going rate, and you would be wise to accept

 
Another big problem also for you is he wants to leave, and when you have a unhappy player the best thing is to let him go, we had the same problem with Mahrez

Tarkowski + Fofana for £30mill + add ons both. I advocated a striker being priority after winger but with Ndidi out and even 1 potential CB injury then we need both in luie of Evans potentially leaving next summer too.

Reading between the lines of what Rodgers has said, I think there WILL be another signing after we get a CB in but I think it will be a LB, winger or a #8..... 

 

Leaning more towards thinking itll be a LB or #8.

Be very disappointed if we spunk 40m on a 28 year old cb who cant even make it into the England squad above dross like Tyrone Mings. Should be avoiding overpriced Prem players like the plague.

If Tarkowski was playing for us, he would be Maguire's partner at centre back for England.

Don't think we will pay £40 million but maybe £30-35 + add ons. This is a huge amount of money but at least he is a known quantity whilst Fofana at £30 million plus seems a huge gamble IMO. I understand the arguments around resale values but Tarkowksi has an excellent injury record and if we get 5 seasons out of him I still think he is a good buy. He could slot straight into a back 3 and should not need easing in.

I would be more than happy with this.

Agreed. Suddenly look v vulnerable there Not sure we could do both now though.

Just pay £40m for Fofana. Fofana will be worth £60m+ in a few years whereas Tarkowski will be worth nothing. 

Bit like my share trading..

Bought William Hill for 51p in April... today they're £3..

My 10k would now be worth 70k..

Hindsight is a wonderful thing..

Fofana might be worth alot more in a few years, but then again if he flops our 40m might be spunked away.

He who dares Rodders?

Feels to me like we'd be going for our 4th choice, which seems like it's panic buying unfortunately. It's like saying 'We don't really want him, but he'll have to do, even though he costs more than our 1st, 2nd and 3rd choices' 🤷‍♂️

Ooh, now here's a thought, if we're willing to pay that kinda money for 4th choice, I tell you what,  let's go for the 1st or 2nd choice FFS 🤔🤔🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️
