Part of me does think we’d be better off with Tarkowski over Fofana purely because for the past year we’ve looked dodgy at defending set pieces. Not that Fofana can’t but I see Tarkowski better in those situations.

Totally agree. We get tark 5 years at his prime

I don’t want Tarkowski. He’s never played in a side that demands the level of footballing ability that we ask from our centre backs, that combined with his age and the figure being touted gives me a bad feeling about this potential transfer. It’s a massive no from me. 

He was terrific at Brentford, where he was required to pass the ball and set up transitions. That’s what got him the attention. He’s very comfortable with the ball, it’s not his fault he currently plays in a low block and he’s asked to launch it to beat the press.

Maybe we do need someone who can come in for Evans now. Especially if Evans is not going to sign a new contract.  

I'd be amazed if he didn't sign a new deal. His family are settled in the midlands and we pay him 80k a week, which he won't better anywhere else without surrendering his status in the first team.

We may not be offering him that salary on his next deal ??

 

he got 80k/week together with a nice s/o fee because we bought him for a song from West Brom ...

To me he's worth every penny. Our defence is so much better and well organised when Evans plays.

Laporte is being sent to Benfica, Walker of the penalty at the weekend who has played his way out of the England squad?  Yeah ok. :)

Walker is one of the best right backs of the last decade and has helped man city win trophy after trophy after trophy. Laporte going to Benfica? Are you sure? He's world class when fit!

no thanks for Tarkowski. He has played for Burnley for years he isn't going to be that next step to get us top 4 regularly. He is the defenders equivalent of Zaha 

I don't think we should mark him down for playing at Burnley - Vardy was at Fleetwood at a similar age. Can be a good grounding - I think he is a decent player and might have been in the England Squad earlier at a bigger club

Otamendi is going to Benfica. Not Laporte.

Even if the wages are too high and we're considering phasing him out of the 1st team, get him his coaching badges and keep him as a player coach.

 

Rodgers already calls him a coach on the pitch, make it official.

i think it would be top trolling of the highest order to sign Tarks and fofana.   Top could then be like “ ahhhhhh! you thought we were skint, suckers! and we’d all laugh about it

Our experienced first choice players continue to get pay rises, so I would be very surprised if we took Evans for granted and tried to get him to take a pay cut. Vardy and Schmeichel are both on £100-150k a week. 

 

Maybe we don't want to go all in on a 3+ year deal at that amount but Rodgers regards him as our most important defender.

If we can stretch to get him in now, then we should do so. Integration is underrated, especially with our tight knit group. Worked wonders for Soyuncu (conveniently ignoring Benkovic as he does not fit my narrative). :unsure:
