    Supposed to have been talking to Schalke and Ozan Kabak for several weeks.
    Schalke need money and we need a CB so obviously 2 and 2 is fiftytwelve.

    Any rumours at all about the time frame here? I heard Jamie Redknapp mention March as a possible return date for Virgil, I wonder did he pluck that from outer space or does he have contacts?

    Don’t think it would take as much as £40m with only 6 months left on his contract but isn’t he looking for more than £200k

    I agree go get him in January .

    Think Inter paid 20m for Eriksen last January and LFC are in a tough position and everyone knows it. 40 probably OTT but I’d pay whatever it takes to get him if he was willing to come. Cover also for left back and midfield. 3 players in one :D

    What kind of CB is he? He's not tall is he,or particularly physical. Lovely footballer but is he suited to be a CB in the Premier League,because he probably doesn't get in our best eleven anywhere else at the moment.

    Ball playing CB , Alba behind Thiago would be unreal for our build up play .

    I don't doubt it mate,I'd worry about the defensive side of things though.

    He seems to be a reader rather than a reacter. His tackling numbers are average, but interceptions are high. Is an excellent ball playing defender/midfielder when the need arrises.
    Granted the defence's first job is obviously defending. But if we did sign Alaba, picture Alisson, TAA, VVD, Alaba, and Robbo playing forward. All excellent passers long and short, then into Thiago,Gini and Hendo - the 3/4 boys up top would be rubbing their hands in glee

    Defensive side he is still very good imo , wins plenty of tackles and his defensive positioning is top draw due to how well he reads the game.

    FIFA to pay his wages of £80k a week while out injured ( saying £2m)

    England internationals are part of the FIFA club protection programme, which means injuries sustained on international duty are protected with compensation

    Should be mandatory for Everton to pay Virgil's wages for time he's out too. Might stop idiots like Pickford making reckless and dangerous challenges.
