You'd need to spend time watching German football to know who he is or if he's anygood.

First time I've heard of him is when Newcastleclaret93 mentioned him.

Norwich have just signed Raschica, that came out of the blue. A bit of coup on there behalf
I mentioned him on a thread on this board along with a few others a while back.

Seeing as Teemu Pukki still can't trap a bag of cement by the looks of it they might need his goals if Norwich are to stay up.

Watford Observer indicating Stoke have agreed a fee with Watford to sign centre back Ben Wilmot, would seem that Collins’ replacement is being lined up.....

The 3 lowest scoring teams in the PL Season 20/21 were Sheffield United, Fulham and Burnley.

If we are to avoid relegation next season we need to bolster our attacking options especially from midfield.

Very good signing for Norwich, one that I would have thought we’d look at for an affordable price.

The Liverpool central defenders were all over the place against us, I lost count the amount of times we pumped it forward and the CBs either let the ball bounce or it beat them and we were in behind. It was like Sunday league defending, they were constantly caught out and it didn't even need a flick on.
Didn’t he get MoM?

And we only scored three more goals when we finished seventh

The biggest issue in terms of goals is where they come from if and when our strikers are out of form.

We’ve done brilliantly defensively - if we could retain this whilst adding a few extra goals from midfield and defence, it could be worth a good few extra points.

His aim this season has to be to claim a regular starting spot in central midfield. I’m yet to be convinced he’s up to that standard - hopefully I’m wrong.

I’m sure he’s on a massive salary, though I’m not sure quite how big - but seeing him punditing tonight for ITV has reminded me that Andros Townsend is out of a contract.

Would he not be a really good option for a couple of years? Proper London lad I know, but has played for Newcastle and had a spell at Leeds too on loan so perhaps not entirely against a Northern move. I can think of worse ways to spend Ashley Young’s wages personally.

If he's out of contract and with no club them surely his salary is £0

I used to watch loads of footy, I've got less and less interested over the last few years so he's a name I'd never heard of :D

For years he seemed to turn up playing for various clubs against us on loan but has settled at Palace and done well for them.

I like him Tony. Think he could be an astute Dyche signing on a free, assuming we’re planning to use up all our budget on CB’s this summer!

Rumours on Twitter suggest we have offered £8.3m (oddly specific) for Phillips, but that they want £10m.

Phillips looked very solid and very ‘Burnley’ against us at the Turf when he scored. He’s a good age at 24 but pretty inexperienced all told, £10m seems a fair amount considering the club he is coming from in my book.

Again, you surely have to think if we’re bringing two CB’s in that we have a buyer in the wings for Tarky.

I'm hoping we're signing 2 defenders this summer but keeping Tarks for another year, (at least!), with the idea of replacing both Mee and Tarks over the next 18 months. It is needed.

Still need strengthening in other areas too, but all looking positive so far...

He would be a great player for a smaller club than Liverpool, but he will be on big wages I would assume. I would guess West Ham or abroad.

Liverpool aren't offloading him at that price (if true) because he's any good. They don't rate him and want shut and we can spend our limited funds much more wisely imo.

I must ring BFC straight away to let them know that one of the best judges in the land of defenders in Sean Dyche has been doing it all wrong! All this time he should have been using the player valuation to determine quality!

Mee, Collins, Philips, Long

Tarks wants away and Ben Mee is not far off being 32 years of age and the backups are adequate stop-gaps for injuries but not long-term replacements... We absolutely need two Center Backs, irrespectively of Tarks going or not! If he stays another year or we get near 20m for him, we will be happy either way, especially if we get 2 quality central defenders in first. This is what we should have done a few windows back for continuity so it looks like SD is being backed and the new board understand SD's thinking and the way football works! Still early days but looking promising.

Said it before, he is massive for us...but im not sure he ticks the boxes for other top 6-8 teams...these lot want more than just a defender & Im not sure he has that in his locker.

Apparently West Ham don’t want to sign Tarkowski after all.
Early days in the negotiations, you need to put that statement into a translator - maybe Google's?
BFC say: We want to keep JT and are prepared to let his contract run out = your offer needs to be higher.
WHU say: We're no longer interested and are pursuing other targets = your asking price needs to be lower.

IMO our signing of Collins early (very early for us!) in the transfer window was necessary to restore the options/negotiation position that we lost with the Ben Gibson debacle; therefore we're now better able to consider life without JT and the likelihood of us selling him if the price is high enough has increased. Should negotiations progress well with regard to our signing the Liverpool lad too - I don't think that one'll need to be signed and sealed beforehand just be going the right way - then JT'll move to WHU (possibly Wolves?) for a mutually acceptable fee.

Mee, Collins, Philips, Long

Thats four

I'm not sure we need more than that tbh, especially considering how sparse we are elsewhere
I take your point LC , but it may be that Collins perhaps will have to wait 12 months, maybe for Tarkowski to leave, before becoming a regular, in the same way as Tarkowski himself did. Collins can also play at Right back , where we currently have a 36 year old and s 32 year old in the squad.

If we’re banking on a 20 year old with no Prem experience to replace Tarkowski, I’ll be worried. Collins looks like a good signing but one for the future and possibly RB cover first. If Tarks is off I think we need someone more experienced- not even sure Phillips ticks that box really.
