The Telegraph report that both clubs have made "informal inquiries" about the 21-year-old former Paris St Germain forward who looks as though he could leave the Bundesliga club this summer.
Augustin was strongly linked with Everton last December but the €40m move materialised in the January transfer window. The France U21 international's value has halved in the interim according to this report for a player who has 11 goals in 41 league games for Leipzig.

I know there are no guarantees with any player, and he does have age in his favour, but for the sort of money that is being mentioned, I would expect the finished article.
Besides that, what worries me with any player, that if he is any good, why is his Club prepared to let him go? Like we don't want to let our best players go, the only exception to that would be a Club that was struggling financially, and needed the funds.

This guy might be really good but in the wrong team of late or he might be a flop. I leave this decision to the guys who are paid millions - outside my pension!

As Madrid have just signed Jovic, why not move for Mariano Díaz?
He was brought in as back-up for Benzema, which now puts him as 3rd choice, scored 18 in 37 (wiki stat) at Lyon and surely won't cost a bomb.

Agustin is apparently very similar to DCL but has a slightly better record of goal conversion albeit in the Bundesliga.
I think we can and should do better.

I think they link everyone to every club knowing that one or two will eventually be right.

He lost his way a bit in the second half of last season, in a team that has lots of decent striking options. In the France Under 19 group I remember him having a greater impact than his team-mate Kylian Mbappe (although Mbappe is 18 months younger and was only 17 years old at time). I'd love to see him sign for us, but I'm not convinced about his attitude.

just so they can say to other interested parties oh Everton are interested to bump up their players salary.
I have already read in the last week that we are looking to swap Lucas Digne with Danny Rose, ridiculous suggestion. PSG are willing to pay £65 million for Richarlison again ridiculous. Mind with no football to occupy the back pages they have to fill their pages with this nonsense.
My advice is believe nothing you read in the press regarding players leaving or coming to the club, instead wait till you see the player at Finch Farm in an Everton shirt.

Thanks for your feedback.
You have convinced me that we can definitely do better.
I had read that he plays a similar way to DCL with his hold up play etc but other than the odd Liepzig game where he didnt stand out for me I havent seen much of him.

Thats been good advice for years but we are all insatiable to know whats going on so we take the sublime with the ridiculous.

What's more they have the audacity to charge extra for the Sports and therefore there shouldn't be any ads, greedy bast**ds!
18 Posted 17/05/2019 at 18:24:37
It should be called Liverpool F.C news.

DCL and Richarlison lack the last quality, they are not strikers. Tosun lacks most of them but perhaps Lookman with improved movement and work rate could be become more of a goal scoring forward rather than a winger?
Anyway that's probably a few years away at best. We need better players in for next season and to get rid of the dross.
