Erm no, it was the exact opposite actually. They could have sold him to Bayern with 12 months left on his contract but they didn't need the money so kept him instead. Pretty stupid by Klopp IMO, but there you go.
There's a shitload of rumours for West Ham at the minute, one of which is for Icardi who Arsene is also supposedly interested in.
Sullivan openly said they put in a £24mill offer for a player in England and a £25mill bid for a ligue 1 striker. The striker is believed to be Batshuayi who they made an offer for in January. Haven't seen anything on who the player in England is. Is Walcott worth that to anyone?
I think he'd be a good fit for West Ham, they need someone that can make runs in behind for their technical players to feed. They've got plenty of battering ram players so this makes sense. Fee is daft.
I can see some kind of sense in that sort of bid. He's got a clean image, an England international (BRAND points), he's an undoubtedly handy when given a run of games, and The New TV Money coming in will send transfer fees higher even than they are already (I remember people being amazed at Ulloa costing £8m in 2014... that sort of deal seems like pretty small fry, even just two years later).
Walcott's absolutely fucking toss if he's not playing regularly though, as it seems to take him aeons to find his rhythm. I think he's got to be one of the first casualties of this season for us, because when we needed him he just didn't deliver.
Lol forgot all about that, when he rejected them one of the idiots there called him a bottler. Five years later the club and fans still have no class about them with the way they both treated Sparky and Pellegrini.
I doubt it. We paid £5m more if reports are true and, under Klopp, he's finally showing the quality for which we bought him for in the first place. He's arguably been our best player in the last 2-3 months.
I'd be very surprised if Klopp wanted rid and that would be the only reason he'd be sold to Spurs.
West Ham linked with Max Gradel for £10m. Loadsa money them haven't they.
Bizarrely Aberdeen are interested in signing Jayden Stockley, who has spent most of his career out on loan in League Two and Conference. Is the Jocks' league really so bad that one of it's foremost clubs wants someone of Stockley's level?
Artur Boruc will sign on for one more year it seems. Probably well deserved over all.
And we've been linked with a host of central midfielders from the Championship, and Ryan Mason from Spurs.
