Anyone listen to TAW podcasts? They made a good point yesterday re Ming and Karius. We won’t get big fees for either as everyone knows that Alisson is first choice by a mile.
Last season if someone came in for our keepers we could demand more as technically they were both first choice in a way. Not now.
I think £10m-£12m for Ming and £7m-£8m for Karius would be good prices.
I’m not sure that their current status at LFC is that important in terms of how much another club would pay for them. Alisson is regarded as one of the best GKs in the world so Karius’ and Migs’ new status at Anfield is a no-brainer and shouldn’t change their potential value to an interested club a great deal. The big issue right now regarding Karius’ ‘value’ is not so much his status or even his ability its his current ongoing difficulties following the ECL Final.
Are we desparate to offload both players now? I don’t think so. Does it matter a great deal which of the two goes? I don’t think so. Look how much we got for our ‘4th choice’ goalkeeper for a second choice role at his new club - most people knew Alisson was on his way.
I never have been that good at predicting a player’s worth in the market but since Edwards and Klopp got together I’d believe anything when it comes to selling our fringe players. Fwiw I’d go along with your estimates but not for any of the reasons you give.
