    If coutinho's deal is worth €160M, Laca is worth as much tbf.

    This is a club who is happy to spend 40M on Paulinho from China. :rofl:

    No he isn't.

    If we get half, we're golden.

    I think as a pair they won’t get as much as you’d think on the market.

    Both are extremely injury prone and Dembélé hasn’t settled nearly as well as they’d have liked. Most of their fans want him gone so they can have a run at Griezmann.

    As for Umtiti he’s never managed more than 25 league games in a season there and has very dodgy knees apparently. If they do end up getting De Ligt I think he’ll be gone quickly.

    Our players are never ever ever worth these crazy sums we see now. We always overexpect. Lacazette wouldn't go for much more than £50m and that's a fact. We have bullshit in charge of our negotiations and our best assets don't even play to their potential due to myriad factors.

    In the football world is Lacazette more hyped now or less than when we signed him?

    Would love 150m but really he is now two years older & dropped from 28 league goals to 14 in 17/18 & 13 in 18/19.

    Liverpool is a much better team without Coutinho.
    Barça too, and are already looking to sell him.

    He's a Youtube player.

    Morata went for more than that and never had a good goal scoring record.
    We're just bad at selling our players.

    Today's market is just crazy and we're not even able to capitalize on that ffs.

    Lacazette is a much more complete player now, contributing with more than goals and assists. He is involved with pretty much everything. If Man City or Liverpool had Laca as their main striker, he would easily win the golden boot.

    If 24 year old Lukaku goes for 80M, 28 year old Laca goes for 80M too. Problem is there are not too many buyers avalible for 28 year old 80M players.

    Our best player. Only reason we should be looking to sell him would be if our transfer budget is poverty, and we had 2 replacements we could reinvest the money in. Nicolas Pepe and Zaha quality.

    Yes he is talented and I agree with points related to that. But stats tell us clearly he isn't an upgrade right now. That is trolling.

    You said he is upgrade right now so points about "same age" stuff are not relevant. But thank you for info about him.

    Aulas is quite a business man from what I know so why would he sell a striker with great potential for not great money if they can keep him easily with his contract situation and surely his price will go up?

    I'm pretty sure for Aulas it doesn't matter how much he paid for him. He is in no hurry, we saw the same with Lacazette. Big interest from top clubs is only good for him in any case.

    Another point that must be taken into account that players need to adjust to EPL. Usually for a season. To a new team also. So we cannot change too much of our team if not totally necessary.

    For me Lacazette as a player of the year goes clearly in the category "not for sale". He cannot and quite likely won't force his way out yet. Probably even wants to see next season with Arsenal.

    You are wrong to say 30M is is a convincing reason to sell.

    It is Aulas we are talking about. How much current profit is not what his caremost, all he want is selling at the highest as possible. It means he is ready to sell Dembele next season at 70M, instead of 50M this season.

    As you said, ourselves, United, Sp**s, Atletico all currently credited with an interest in Dembele, Aulas will not sell someone who can grow more. He is very patient.

    Especially when he'll make Dembele the face of that squad next season.

    Don't know why some of you lads are ok with only booking a 15m profit on our best player...

    is Laca still the back up of Giourd in National team? if so, that has changed a bit since he joined us. For me, he only won the player of the season is because he is better than the rest who had poor performance , but not because Laca is a top class player. He wasn't and still isn't

    Agree with this, O.Dembele clearly has the talent but I think there is also a lot of risk in signing him, he is injured a lot and has question marks over his professionalism and consistency.

    Could be a very frustrating player who could go either way, as good as he may be I wonder if it would be safer to put the money elsewhere in our current state.

    Coutinho was scoring and assisting at a better rate from midfield than Laca :rofl:

    He isn't even a back up, he doesn't get called up at all.

    Has he come out and said he's not interested yet? If not then I think there's every chance his head has been turned and we need to consider the possibility he's leaving. If it has been turned then he needs to leave this transfer window for the reason below. Sometimes players don't care what fans want, only what their personal ambitions and situations warrant. This is the reality.

    @drippin its not trolling. I believe he is a better player now. He can do more than Lacazette and will only continue to get better. It's a no brainer to me. But that's my opinion and it's a firmly held one. You dont need to agree. Nobody needs to agree. 100 times out of 100 I'd rather Moussa Dembele over Lacazette.
