Out of interest, who have I over valued? (If indeed I was included in your comment).

Think we’ll let Choudhury go to, especially if Soumare is a genuine target.

 

But you’re in dreamland if you think anyone will pay £5M for a player that couldn’t nail down a starting place at Cardiff, Bristol City or OH Leuven!

I could see Celtic paying close to that for Benkovic.

Plays right wing, can create chances, scores goals.  Yup, definitely not our type of player based on current evidence.

I'm speaking about age lol...

In regards to the previous Florian Thauvin links, I really do not see what Thauvin would/can bring to the team. (Even if we were to sign him hypothetically on a free transfer.)

He does not want to come here, think he will stay in France or move to Italy.

You'd have said that probably about what we did end up getting for Musa, Iborra, Silva, Slimani etc... clubs will pay up a bit. Besiktas seem to love Ghezzal, I could see them giving us what we paid for him, which is mad really. I've been surprised quite a few times at the money we've ended up getting for players I expected next to nothing from.

10M for Ghezzal, 10M for Choudhury - absolutely zero chance.  Would be thrilled to get that for both, never mind each.

 

5M for Benko may be almost as ambitious, although someone might just splash that based on his one golden season at Celtic.

Most clubs (including us) are going to be wary about getting their figures burnt and be much more risk averse. They will be looking at players who have consistently performed  at a high level over several seasons . Values change dramatically depending on current form. Man.Utd. would never pay £100 million for Sancho now.

I would love him here.

Yes please! Been really impressed by what I’ve seen of him this season and still young so fits our general transfer mould.... oh add Dannnish fwiends into the mix and I’m sure Kasper would be putting in a good word

Hate to say it but Rici P. We've gone almost a full season without him and done well. We'd need to bring in some cheap cover though whilst we wait for Justin to recover. 

 

Again would rather we keep him. Just imo the player who could fund our next window. 

The problem here is peak Riccy P pre doing his ACL would’ve funded a few quality moves... problem is since returning he’s yet to a) show he’s capable of staying injury free and b) looks half the player... granted after being out for a year it was always going to take him time to build himself back up but at the minute I can’t see any club coming in with the big bucks we would’ve seen a year or so ago thus making selling him on kind of pointless

@Deeg67 With players like Knockhaert going to PL clubs for £11m, Cash for £15m, Diangana £15m, Ollie Burke £6m and Brewster for £23m, I don't think that the 10 mark is too far of for a 23 year old English player (that premium works two ways) with a fair amount of experience at the top level. 

 

2 goals and 13 assists in 22 games, Ghezzal is worth £10m to Besiktas alone. So again, I don't think that £10m is too wide of the mark. 

 

Just because players don't work out for us doesn't mean they don't potentially hold value to other teams. 

 

How about a wager? If it's closer to £20m for the pair, you knock of the million part and donate it to the Vichai foundation (£18m would be £18) and i'll do the same if it's closer to £10m....

The only problem is Turkish clubs don't tend to spend much on transfer fees. They like to take experienced players on loans and small fees on high wages.

This is true. There was a couple of £6m transfers this year bit thats all. 

 

However it would be a gamble for them to pass on one of their better players and gamble on someone else. 

 

It might be a case of spending money when you have to and if they fear losing him, they might have to.

To be fair anywhere between 6m and 10m for Ghezzal is probably more then we would have got before this season.

 

With his numbers in Turkey, I'd imagine a few club would be interested in a gamble for those figures.  

 

He one of the last members of the real deadwood brigade now Silva, Slim gone.

 

If we could bring in 15m-20m for Him, Benko and Hamza I think that would be a good window.

Club ‘want to find middle ground’ to sign Leicester player after Foxes ‘opened door’ for summer sale

 

Leicester City’s Rachid Ghezzal is shining on loan at Beşiktaş this season, with the Foxes owned player deployed mostly on the right-wing position, having contributed with two goals and 13 assists in 22 league matches.
 

Unsurprisingly, these impressive numbers have convinced the Turkish club to make his stay permanent in the summer.

 

On March 24th, we carried a report from Takvim, who explained Brendan Rodgers’ side are demanding €8m to cut ties with the 28-year-old and are ‘not ready to offer discount’, even though his contract is until 2022.

 

Sabah now explain the Algeria international has convinced the Istanbul based club and is making their management ‘smile’ with his performances. Therefore, Beşiktaş want to retain him beyond his loan spell.

 

It’s claimed Leicester have ‘opened the door’ for their winger to leave for €7m, but Beşiktaş haven’t reached these figures and want to ‘find the middle ground’ by adding €2m to their first offer they made.

 

Sabah doesn’t provide details of the first offer, but considering Beşiktaş want to find the middle ground [€3.5m] by adding €2m, one could assume their first proposal might have been in the €1.5-2m range.

Out...

 

Morgan - Free

Fuchs - Free

James - Free

Hamza - around £10m

Ghezzal - around £10m??

Benkovic - £5m surely?

For what it's worth, I'd say you're about right. 10m for Hamza is easily possible, especially as he's English and homegrown. Ghezzal I'd say 5-8m we'll get, might depend on his wages though. Benko is a tough one, no reason we shouldn't get 3-5m for him though.

 

People valuing the three of them at 10m or something are out of their minds.

I think too many are writing Hamza off. He is never going to be a top class DM but he could well be a box to box workhorse of a high standard similar to Praet . Discretion in the tackle will come as he gets older. His work rate is excellent , which is is why I rate Mason Mount. You need this sort of player in a squad.

I think getting 15m all together for the  3 would be decent and feasible.

I think your severely underrate Praet if you think Hamza will reach that level.

Two years ago some on here wanted to know why Southgate wasn't considering him. We have to be patient , Dennis is four years or so older and wiser.

Interesting..

Someone we have been interested in before (and you can never have enough Belgians)
 

Pretty underwhelming season from him with just 1,017 minutes played (11.3 games) but has got 3 goals and 4 assists.

Had some injury issues this season and they have some good players challenging him, so could be available for a good price, but they might not want to sell if they also sell Sancho this summer

Patson Dako 22yrs old and 30 goals in 32 games for Salzburg. Apparently will be available for around 30M,  our magic number. Could be the long term successor to Vardy.
