I would go in and offer £50m + Douglas Luiz in exchange for Tammy Abraham. Big mistake not getting it done last summer.

Thatís a hefty total financial offer there.

That would be a worse deal than paying £100 million for Grealish.

When looking at Tarkowski I am minded to think of the impact Craig Dawson has had on West Ham. On the face of it nothing special but very solid lots of nous and scores the odd goal. If he can't pass out from the back (which everyone has assumed because that wasn't the way Burnley played - it may be he is more than capable) he'd be fine as long as he can pass it 15 yards to Kamara or Bissouma

We need more goals from the Centre Halves at set pieces and he is very good in the air and looked dangerous v us last week
He was being marked by Buendia tbf.

Signing Kamara and hypothetically, if we did bring Burnley's JT in on a free then we're going to be in a position to smash the transfer record where we think it's warranted. It would certainly make the footballing world stand up and take notice.

Also set to sign 16 year old Hearts 'starlet' Ewan Simpson for 250k.

Also said to be closing in on Rangers defender Calvin Bassey. Would make sense given he's a left-sided CB who can play at (act as cover for) left back. Haven't seen much of him but he looked good in the Europa League and Scottish Cup finals and a big unit.

Tarkawski is decent in a no nonsense stopper type way.  You don't need all your defenders to have Cruyff type ability on the ball, so long as he can find a teammate.  He would be a decent option although I would have preferred a bit more pace I think.

£120k pw is crazy, but if part of it is framed as a signing on fee then hopefully it won't break the wage structure.  What would he be worth if for sale under contract - £20-£25m?

I don't think Abraham would make the world sit up and take notice. Not convinced he is better than what we already have. I want a megastar up front please.

I like Tammy but I can't see him leaving Roma at the moment anyway.  We misseed our chance last summer.

No doubt - I just donít think Tammy would be who I would be targeting if thatís the case. £50m + Doug would be bonkers.

Doesn't Luiz only have a year left on his contract? That will limit sale value.

I think that's the way to look at it.  £120k/week is £6m a year -- over 4 years, that's £24m, which in the grand scheme of things is only about what you'd paid as a transfer fee (without wages) for a player like him.  Structure the payments sensibly, and it still works out pretty cheap.
