Saints valuation of Højbjerg too rich for Everton

| Thursday, 23 January 2020 81comments  |  Jump to last
Everton are reportedly targeting Southampton midfielder Pierre-Emile Højbjerg as they search for midfield reinforcements but have been put off by his £35m price tag.

The Blues are known to be looking at potential signings this month (although Marcel Brands indicated that the right side of midfield was the main priority) but also have to keep their costs down in the wake of the latest accounts.

As such, a big-money move of the type mooted here by Italian journalist Gianluca DiMarzio is unlikely.

Perhaps more feasible are unconfirmed reports that Carlo Ancelotti might seek to reunite with winger Hirving Lozano.

The Mexican international underlined his burgeoning reputation as one of the more exciting young wingers in the game at the 2018 World Cup and eventually earned a move from Brands's old club, PSV Eindhoven to Napoli under Ancelotti.

He has failed thus far to light up Serie A and the Italian club might look to move him on.

This guy was peps project at Bayern and he predicted he would be a superstar. I haven’t seen enough of him at Southampton to have a strong view either way. I would Imagine hes a metronome type as theyre the ones pep loves, constantly ticking the ball over.

Actually £35 million will buy you an average premiership midfielder. Sadly average is not cheap anymore. Clubs in lower divisions want £10 -20 million for their players. The big clubs pay £75-100 million for very good players. Sadly, if we don't pay it some other club will!

No such thing as January sales!!

Good player, good age, bit of a leader. Probably bollocks though. Next

I've been fantasizing about Chucky Lozano in Everton Blue longer than I've been fantasizing about Halle Berry in bed.

If Carlo could actually pull this off, I would swim to Goodison through the Panama Canal to see that kid play.

Good player taken longer to develop than expected. Was supposed to become a big deal in a v good Bayern midfield but ended up at Saints. Seems unlikely we'd cough up that much - since there are plenty of players outside the prem of similar quality at half that price. Lobotka just went to Napoli for 20m by way of example. Seems unlikely anything will happen much in Jan now because:

- quality is scarce and prices are high

- we don't actually need anyone right now as the team is improving

- we'd be eating into the summer budget

- even if we bought a super star its not going to give us top 4 (and there's a reasonable chance of Europa league already)

- gives Carlo a few more months to figure out who really is in his plans

And as for Lozano it looks like he's not made the step up. Thought he was great at the world cup - like a young alexis sanchez - but you'd only want him now as a cut price deal surely? Whereas Halle Berry definitely still got it...

Derek Knox

Mike G, wow what position does Halle Berry play? Yes would like Chucky over here myself alongside Everton Soares (Cebolinha) who, we have been associated with too (hope there is mileage in both of them. (the stories not the players)

Although Jamie Crowley wouldn't approve Chucky's move, he has often expressed his dislike of him on here! I had no idea either, that Hojberg was ever an option for us. It will all start 'hotting up' with the Window time running down this next week.

Let's hope we have some 'outs' as well as much needed 'in's' to freshen things up as European spots are still very feasible.

I’m more interested in getting rid of the deadweight (is it seven players?) who are out on loan, or rotting at finch farm, first. These guys are draining us of millions in wages.

Plus we need to rid ourselves of mediocre players like Walcott, Schneiderlin, Iwobi and Keane. I would say around 12 players need to be cut loose by next summer to be replaced by quality not quantity.

Dave Abrahams

Hojbjerg, can’t place him to be honest so no idea if he is over priced or not, the midfield is desperate for improvement so Mooy, of Huddersfield now on loan at Brighton, would definitely improve our midfield while adding energy and movement, Brighton are hoping to make his move permanent for £5M, would love Everton to get him for that price.

Some fans seem happy if no signings are made in January, I think we are struggling now, definitely in midfield, we can be in trouble if no signings are made.

Derek 7-very good...I see you how you sneaked that little double entendre in there
Richard Duff
11 Posted 24/01/2020 at 10:17:11
Hojbjerg is a strange one.

Saints fans I know think he causes more stress than good with his crazy, run anywhere style. In our parlance, a bit like Gravesen used to be for us. Great close control and skill, let down by trying to do too much all the time.

He is a vocal guy and shows his desire to win so, a leader but maybe not a very good one, reminds me of Scott brown at Celtic - puts the boot in and can play a bit but acts a bit of a tit.

£15M tops.

Alan Johnson
12 Posted 24/01/2020 at 10:25:36
Strange one. Never heard him being mentioned by any of our more knowledgeable fans. Hoping the Everton deal happens...
John Hammond
13 Posted 24/01/2020 at 10:49:23
He's been excellent for Southampton since their 9-0 pasting. £35m sounds crazy but is about right nowadays.

I'm actually beginning to think we won't go for anyone in January unless we suffer another bunch of injuries or an absolute steal becomes available. Ancelotti has used the same squad as Silva but with less players to choose from due to injury and gotten results. He has a gameplan that works for these players and we have a nice break until February when we should have more back from injury plus Gomes and Gbamin on the horizon.

Seriously though does no-one think that having moved Tosun out and seen the end (surely) of Niasse we must be in for a striker behind the scenes?
I think we need a striker almost half as much as I want Halle Berry in bed..
That’s a LOT!!
Brian Williams
16 Posted 24/01/2020 at 10:58:37
If that £5m figure is correct it's unbelievable. I'd offer 'em £8m, even £10m to guarantee getting him this week.
Cracking little player. Industrious, skillful, and can score goals!

I'll give Marcel a bell!

Robert Tressell
17 Posted 24/01/2020 at 11:01:16
Colin, I'm with you to some extent but have resigned myself to disappointment.

- walcott: difficult to shift due to contract length and wages and age and averageness. Best hope is that he gets a good offer from the MLS. Otherwise will be hanging around and overtaken by Gordon.

- schneiderlin: similar situation. However, he is improving under Carlo. He is decent back up but not a first 11 player. More likely to go once he's run his contract down more. Expect another season of him.

- Iwobi: not sure why we bought him. But isn't too bad. V unlikely to sell as he's only just turned up and who would buy? Needs a run if games. Might find a role in the 4222 formation as a roving playmaker alongside Bernard.

- keane: not as bad as made out. Very good alongside Zouma. Unfortunately Mina is a poor mans Zouma. Holgate is different altogether. A good reserve. If we sold we'd need to replace. It all costs money. Expect he'll stay too.

The squad will get a lift from returning gomes and gbamin + maybe 1 or 2 quality players.

Andrew Bentley

Southampton midfielder . the answer to all our problems. Haven't we been here before with a certain person now clogging up wages at Everton. Let's hope this rumour doesn't have legs. We need better than this.
Derek Knox
19 Posted 24/01/2020 at 11:03:04
How about involving Walcott in a cash/swap deal with Hojbjerg? That would solve two problems in one go, but since Southampton have had their resurgence, I would imagine they would be reluctant to either have their 'old boy' back as part of the deal, or let their Captain go in the opposite direction.

Martin @20, have you heard anything more concrete on Cebolinha apart from the usual Transfer gossip? I would be over the moon with this guy and have been following him for some time now.

I have been even more enthusiastic with regular reports from Jay Wood and Fran Mitchell who both live in Brazil, although I believe Fran has returned to the UK recently.

The kid is magic and as you rightly say he would add a new dimension, not only on the right but can also play left or centrally too.

The sort of figures being mentioned are a steal too, but I believe Gremio (his parent Club) are struggling financially so he could be the solution to their, and our problems.

Carl Manning
25 Posted 24/01/2020 at 11:49:16
What a ridiculous statement to mock a players ability, because he’s currently at Southampton. Mane and van Dijk were Southampton players. Then add bale, Lallana and countless others and it becomes glaringly obvious Southampton produce good players, and make good players better.

We need to get away from all this ridiculous looking down our noses at players because of who they play for. Southampton are one of the best teams to watch in the league. They play the press aggressively and attack in numbers. Sure, they got a hiding against Leicester but look at them since.

That’s a team with an outstanding manager, but more importantly it’s obvious there players have fight and character. So the one thing we know about the player, is that he will have a bit about him!

Henrik Lyngsie
26 Posted 24/01/2020 at 12:35:37
Last year in Sam Hoares annual scouting thread I suggested Hojbjerg.
I think he provides some of the characteristics that we are missing in midfield. On the pitch he has got a little bit of the Gravesen craziness in a positive way. (I think off the pitch he is nowhere in the Gravesen league).
He is box to box, good technique, forward passing, hard working and a leader. I could see him fit in really well and provide something we need in the midfield.
Jim Wilson
27 Posted 24/01/2020 at 12:49:28
We need a centre midfield general who can lead by example and a proven goalscorer and that is it.
It is then about improving the players we have.
The madness of constantly buying players must stop or the bizarre disasters that keep happening to us will run on and on.

Continuity is the key.

Dave Abrahams
28 Posted 24/01/2020 at 13:09:23
Carl (26), you forgot Schneiderlin and Martina, oh and didn’t James Beattie play for them?
Fran Mitchell
29 Posted 24/01/2020 at 13:12:57
Jim? Really? So you think we need to replace DCL more than we need to replace Walcott? Really?

DCL and Richarlison are both proven goalscorers. Both in double figures at mid way point in the season. When was the last time we had 2 strikers in double figures at this stage in the season? And yet people still banging on about the mythical 'goalscorer' that we need.

I mean, 40million gets you Joelinton, or Wesley, or countless other strikers who aren't even close to what we already have. Plus Kean could just turn into the striker we hoped too.

For me, if we get Everton Soares, or even Jarrad Bowen for the wide man, then the focus should be on 2 midfielders.

Eberechi Eze from QPR, then maybe someone a bit older, maybe that Vecino.

Then we could focus on a right back in the summer, move on Keane and get a replacement, and promote Gibson.

Joe McMahon

Dave James Beattie wasn't a bad player, it's just he wasn't suited to The Moyes System. 4 5 1 run to the corner flag to get the ball.
Daniel A Johnson
31 Posted 24/01/2020 at 13:31:13
I 100% hope we buy no one.

We are in no mans land in the league anyway.
January is expensive.

I'd rather Ancelotti worked with what he had and identified who stays and who goes in the summer, also we need to get our targets in early unlike last summer with last min deal collapses and so on.

Colin Glassar
32 Posted 24/01/2020 at 13:44:23
Agreed Daniel. We also need a proper, professional pre-season unlike the last few amateurish jaunts to Austria to play the reserve team of some 3rd tier team of cow herders.

We need to prepare properly this summer or we will suffer the same shite we’ve been provided with over the last couple of seasons.

Jay Wood

33 Posted 24/01/2020 at 13:47:12
I honestly know zilch-nada-nowt about this lad. Just hasn't registered with me at all. I couldn't even say if he has played against us.

Not that I follow Saints closely, but is he any good?

Agree with Carl @ 26. Silly to be sniffy about a player just because they play for a team like Southampton.

I'm leaning towards Daniel @ 32 view that Marcel and Carlo might just hold their nerve and go with what we've got now rather than recruit anybody in the next week.

Rob Dolby
34 Posted 24/01/2020 at 13:58:47
Whenever I have seen this lad play he works hard and generally is a water carrier for better players around him.

Would he improve our midfield, probably.

Would he get into a top 4 team, probably not.

He may be the type of player Ancelotti wants to put into a system. I would love us to have a system or a certain way of playing.

If Ancelotti wants him we have to go and get him in my opinion.

Derek Knox
37 Posted 24/01/2020 at 15:00:29
Daniel, Colin and Jay, stick with what we have?

They totally let us down and managed to convert a nailed on win into one point and a draw, in the last match.

I'm sorry mates but a lot of them have been given chances to show they are worth keeping, and failed miserably. They don't have the nous or the bottle to see a game out, and during the game don't have that killer instinct either.

I have always liked Tom Davies, but recently he has been given chance after chance, but he constantly gives the ball away, rarely looks up when passing the ball. He is not a kid anymore, yet people keep making excuses as if he is.

Sorry for singling him out but he is not alone, but he was allegedly, one of our hopes for the future. He is getting paid an astronomical amount of money for someone of his age, yet it is not commensurate with his everyday performances.

Sam Hoare
38 Posted 24/01/2020 at 15:02:12
I like a Hojberg a lot. Good player who gets around a lot and has a very rounded game. He's young and he looks a leader. My big issue would be that's he's not the fastest and we are so slow in the middle. Perhaps if Gbamin (who is quick) settles then he could be a good partner.

I don't see us spending £30m+ on a midfielder this window.

Jay Wood

39 Posted 24/01/2020 at 15:16:43
Derek @ 38.

It's not my personal preference to go with what we have until the end of the season. The team and squad can ALWAYS be upgraded and refreshed no matter how successful you are.

I just feel that both Brands and Ancelotti are wise and mature heads who can and will, I imagine, hold their nerve.

Yes, if an agreed player is available at the right price they may go for him in this window. But otherwise, they may take a more pragmatic rather than excitable puppy aproach to the market in this transfer window.

Just a hunch, nothing more.

Joe (31), Joe, “ Beattie wasn’t a bad player” fair enough Joe, I have to say, for me, he wasn’t very good either and his record, for Everton, of one goal every six games didn’t inspire confidence in, maybe Moyes didn’t help him with the way he set Everton up.

Mooy signed a permanent deal at BHA, he might regret that if they slide towards the bottom.

So my mate a seeason ticket holder at Saints is pissing himself at this. He sez "take him for £10 mill". I trust his judgement.
Jay Harris
45 Posted 24/01/2020 at 16:25:50
I don't know why we were never interested in Mooy. To me he has always looked like the player we need in MF. Tigerish, box to box, good passing short and long and very versatile.

As regards Hojberg. I always thought he looked the weakest of their MF with Ward-Prowse and Romeu always looking much better than him.

It looks like we are in for Allan. I havent seen much of him but if Carlo wants to build his MF around him I would think hes a good player.

Everton for Everton has always had a romantic ring to it and I know Jay Wood rates the guy so he would be a yes too.

Any purchases will come in installments so FFP will not be a major factor especially if Marcel can get a few off the books before the year end.

Steve Ferns

Mike Gaynes, isn’t Halle Berry an Everton fan? Her ma was from Liverpool.

We can’t we sign a left winger and move Bernard to the right? He’s a right footer and he can use his left for more than just keeping himself upright?

I’d like to see a central midfielder on loan and see how Gomes and Gbamin recover. Then if they come back to their best, we can splash the cash on a top class player in the summer.

Simon Jones
47 Posted 24/01/2020 at 17:05:28
Walcott back to Southampton as part of the deal???
Tom Bowers
48 Posted 24/01/2020 at 17:05:29
This is got to be the weirdest transfer window with hardly anything being done except loan deals.

The oddest thing is that so far the only team that doesn't need anybody is RS and they have spent the most money on the Japanese lad.

I suppose Manure will eventually get the Sporting Lisbon player by the end of the month but other than that nobody's buying unless there is a late flourish.

Everton's player of the season, Gbamin ( I don't think he's had a bad game all season)

Colin Glassar
49 Posted 24/01/2020 at 17:05:59
Mooy was one I always liked. He’s got great work rate and he’s skilful as well. I’m still mad at Everton for not going if for Maddison when he was available at Norwich or dele Ali or Ramsay or Kyle Walker or so many other young players we were linked with but failed to make a move.

Steve, give me 10 minutes and I’d make Halle Berry an Everton fan. Not bragging like.

David Greenwood

Tony Everan
52 Posted 24/01/2020 at 17:19:16
I've always liked [no] Aaron Mooy too, a touch of quality about him. Maybe he hasn't go the physicality that we are looking for and that's why he's overlooked. I want to have a good look at Gbamin, so a loan deal for a CM [or a masterstroke signing] is the way to go.

£35M for Hojberg seems too much, but maybe a player + money deal can be done so the transfer can be advantageous. I am a bit surprised he is linked as he has never stood out to me, maybe someone's spotted an improvement in him this season with more to come.

Rob Young
53 Posted 24/01/2020 at 17:19:49

Jay Harris

I don't really know but I'm sure he would have preferred to come to Everton than Brighton and they've had him on loan all season an arrangement that I would have thought we should have gone for.

Tony Everan
55 Posted 24/01/2020 at 17:27:39
Colin, we got Calvert-Lewin, Holgate they are on the way to the top so it's not all doom and gloom. John Stones made us a big profit [squandered]. But yes I'm mad about Maddison, but he seemed intent on Leicester at the time and that move seemed like a done deal early on.

We shouldn't beat ourselves up too much about James Madison. He is from Coventry, and while at Norwich, was loaned out to Aberdeen. He said that he was homesick, and wanted a Midlands club, so he could be near his family. For once, not an Everton bog-up!
Dave Abrahams
63 Posted 24/01/2020 at 17:51:46
Well, Mooy has gone to Brighton, so that's that.

How about Joe Allen of Stoke, another good central midfielder with plenty of nous and movement, plus a few goals. Get in before Moyes makes his move. No, forget that, let Moyes make his move, once Joe hears Davey's patter he'll run like the wind away from Moyes and WHU!

He won't cost too much either, Stoke want him off their wage bill, one of their top earners.

Carl Manning
64 Posted 24/01/2020 at 17:53:27
What sums the English market up for me is Peterborough are by all accounts quoting teams £10m for their striker!!! A League One striker!

Kind of makes Sidibe at £13m look like a giveaway.

I think this is now the problem. I'm sure Mr Brands would love to buy young and British, but what would Leeds want for Phillips? QPR for Eze? The world's gone mad!

Don Alexander

Strange Tom Davies 21 gets labelled as a championship player and the clamour is for us to buy a 29 yr old Mooy who has spent most of his career in the championship or below.
Glad we are not in for him, he's average at best. I would much prefer Alzate if we wanted a Brighton midfielder.
Jeff Armstrong
68 Posted 24/01/2020 at 18:39:40
Conor, Aaron Mooy has gone for £5 million, he is an excellent player with 3 or 4 good seasons ahead of him, the fact he is Australian, or doesn’t look like Ronaldo has gone against him for years, at that price he is an absolute steal.
Conor McCourt
69 Posted 24/01/2020 at 18:53:29
Jeff- anytime I've watched them it's Alzate or Bissouma or Connolly up front whose impressed me. I don't care how much he costs I don't think he would improve us. He can hit a free kick, works hard and is tidy but no more.

Can't help thinking there must be some reason the likes of him and Mooy don't attract serious attention from the clubs we are hoping to mix it with. Easy to be swayed by the highlight reel that is MotD and the occasional glowing tribute from one of their pundits perhaps?

Not sure what is wrong about the old water carrier reverse compliment. Wasn't that essentially the modus operandi of the likes of Deschamps (the original) and Makelele? Players who do the simple things consistently to a high standard and thus provide the solid foundation of the team. I think you could put our own Lee Carsley and Gana Gueye into that category.

If it can be applied to Hojbjerg then I'd genuinely be interested. Still hoping Beni Baningime could be that sort of player for us.

Didn't realise how fast Hojbjerg is. That's an asset in our ponderous midfield. 35m doesn't sound too much compared to similar for Can. Also v good passing stats. Who knows. More like a summer signing though I guess

What about Wanyama? Spurs are really trying to shift him on, reports saying about £7m

Eric (74),

Yes, Beattie had a decent spell with Sheffield United after he left Everton but they were in the Championship. He then went to Stoke in the Premier League and never really succeeded. But, to be honest, he was hit with injuries from then and finished at Accrington Stanley.

Andy, where did you get that from about Bridget? There were rumours going around, when I was a kid, that Adolf was in Liverpool just before WWI and that he was a koppite. I know he had family there but I don't know what happened to them. But I never knew her. I did meet Paul McCartney's sister, Mary, and she was an Evertonian.

As for Ms Berry, to paraphrase one of John's greatest hits — All I am asking, is give Halle a chance.

Shame on you Andy Crooks (#72). I've shagged a bird with a 'tache".

......... or at least that's what she told me.

Adolf was obviously a red, judging by those flags the nazis had!
