£27m + Dan for Tarks

27m + Slim for Fofana

Think Burnley might go for that, but would rather keep big Dan. Surely he is worth more than £8M after that comeback.

If we offer Slim to ASSE they would up the price to £50M+

after Sunday's performance i can see Burnley asking for Amartey as part of a swap deal. Big Dan plus £30m? Might be workable, and tempting but we saw how good he can be for us so not sure i would let him go. He would certainly be a sensible target for Dyche though due to his versatility.

Despite the haters I don’t see a massive difference between Tarkwoski and Amartey. Dan is a player who we have played mostly out of position. He would do a solid job at CB and we already have him. Why spend £30+ million on an older and possibly slightly better CB?  Don’t get it.

Quite. i was speculating that Burnley might suggest such a deal but not sure i would go for it. I like Amartey and he has shown that he is probably worth a considerable amount more to us than his current market value might suggest.

Jeez guys he's played one game in 2 years and you think he's better than Tarkowski. What happens if he's poor against WHU?

Maybe against Man City/Liverpool, where it's to a large degree limited to their defensive capabilities, but in games where we have more possession (which I hope will be most of them) I'd back Tarkowski to be much better at building from the back. 

 

Like a lot of us, I have a soft spot for Dan, but I'm not yet as ready as you appear to be to deal with hearing 'Schmeichel plays it out short to Amartey' on a regular basis.

Not sure in those games we would go 3/5 at the back. More likely 442. Let’s be honest, Tarkowski is NOT £30 million better than Dan. He just isn’t.

I just don’t get it with our fans. “We’re not signing anyone, the owners are cheap!”

They open the Amex and now you’re all complaining.
You need to spend money to compete in more than one league.

I’m from Oz and even I understand this. 

Tanner saying Fofana is close and we are unlikely to be doing both.  Smokescreen?

Knowing what I no about both I’d prefer Tarks because he’s ready to go and he knows the league, but fofona could end up makings up a load off money if he turns out decent big gamble on a lad at 19. We’ve seen decent players come from over the water and have been out there depth.

If you can guarantee Evans and Soyuncu are going to be available for every game, you should have said so! 

 

If I think about our options playing either 2 or 3 CBs without one of them, I have way less confidence than you in Amartey. TBH I can't really see how 3 CBs would be an option in any games where we might want to use it

There will be a lot of spilt bovril at turf moor if Tarkowski is left thumbing a floppy up his own harris when we sign Fofana. 

We can look forward to Dychey baby slagging us of for leading the lad a merry dance no doubt.  His dream move snatched away at the death!

You cant keep buying young prospects though, one of our biggest problem last year was the lack of experience and leaders, Tarkowski adds to that. It's more than I'd like to pay but for me its a good signing, if it happens. Even at the price he is still 3rd choice in a back 4 but I think he'd back himself to get in the side any stay there. Evans won't be able to play as many games this season, without a doubt. Don't see Tarkowski as a back 3 sort of signing, that's more Fofana for me. Doubt we'd sign both but didn't think we'd sign Soyuncu and Benkovic but we did. It would be a shame, but probably correct, if we don't see Wes Morgan play again. 

Plenty of leaders and experience in our team.

 

Kaspar, Evans and Vardy. We're also full of players like Tielemans, Soyuncu, Castagne, etc who are young but leaders. It's not like the whole team is full of wonderkids.

Lock it up mods

 

James Tarkowski is set to stay at Burnley past next week’s transfer deadline day, Lancs Live can reveal.

 

The defender was wanted by West Ham and Leicester City and is open to leaving Turf Moor to further his international ambitions.

 

But the Clarets have priced him out of a move away having rejected two bids from the Hammers and one from the Foxes.

 

Neither club is prepared to meet Burnley’s valuation, understood to be at least £40m, and as a result the player is now set to remain at Turf Moor.

 

Tarkowski has returned to training after overcoming a toe problem and could feature in the Carabao Cup tie against Man City or the Premier League trip to Newcastle United on Saturday.

 

The transfer window closes on Monday and it is highly unlikely any club will make any late offers for the 27-year-old who has two years to run on his contract.

 

The Clarets turned down a £30m plus add-ons bid from Leicester over the weekend having already rebuffed two offers from the Hammers.
 

West Ham made their move earlier in the window with an opening bid of £23million, or £20m rising to £25m with add-ons, before returning with a second offer of a straight £24.5m, or £20m rising to £30m with add-ons.
 

Both clubs were keen on Tarkowski with David Moyes having made the former Brentford man his priority this summer. But he and Brendan Rodgers are now set to turn their attention to other targets in the final days of the window.

 

Tarkowski staying, and the emergence of Jimmy Dunne, also means Burnley are unlikely to invest in a new defender this summer.
