Jake Livermore
« on: January 16, 2017, 12:40:51 PM »
Looks like it's time for its own thread....


Albion have turned their attention to Jake Livermore after missing out on Morgan Schneiderlin and have approached Hull City with an offer.

Head coach Tony Pulis, who missed out on Schneiderlin last week when he joined Everton instead, wants to bring a central midfielder into his team this window.

The size of Albion's opening bid is unknown at this stage, but it's believed to be lower than the £18million they offered Manchester United for primary target Schneiderlin.

Having let Craig Gardner join Birmingham City on loan last week, Albion's central midfield options are light at the moment, and Pulis brought 18-year-old Sam Field off the bench at White Hart Lane on Saturday.

"Obviously we need to bring players in," he said. "We have to improve, everybody knows that. But whether we get what we want we have to wait and see."

It may not be a marquee signing but Livermore would improve our midfield considerably IMO. Question is who drops out? I could see him playing alongside both Fletcher and Yacob.

I'll reserve judgement.

More than enough fans slammed the money we spent on Phillips, and were disappointed with the signing of Nyom, yet both have been outstanding.

Livermore is an improvement on what we have but that isn't saying a lot. At 15 million though he is way over priced. Would rather have Snodgrass for 10 million. The problem is in the January window British players in particular are by far overpriced. Best to look for a bargain from the continent but again that has its risks.

If Livermore went for 15mil then snodgrass is worth double that

John Percy says we have bid 10 million for him he's normally very reliable

Probably at 10 million the right price for Livermore but i am sure that Hull are not desperate to sell so will be looking at around £15 million to sell him.

Last few pages about the rumour, they are livid saying our offer is a pisstake. Seem to rate him very highly . Saying 15m in today's market

Can also play center back by the looks of it. Tone would love that's

Same question applies as with any CM coming in, does he replace Fletcher?

More importantly, does he replace Fletcher in Pulis' eyes?

Has to be Fletcher as Yacob is irreplaceable in my eyes. Him, Evans and Foster are the must starters for me.
