Sounds similar to the point I made a couple of weeks backIt’s a really interesting eight minute chat by the way.
The most interesting snippet, which I hadn’t considered, is that as Liverpool’s recruitment has been absolutely bang on for the last few seasons, any move we make for a player is going to prompt the selling club, and others to think they have a belter on their hands and think we’ve spotted something they haven’t.
If we show an interest in a player that a club is open to selling does that club start thinking... "wait a minute....what aren't we seeing in this guy...? Maybe we should keep him after all?....Or at least double the price, ffs"
We could become victims of our own success. At least we could try and say we're looking to strengthen the squad rather than add to the first team in an effort to downplay how we might privately rate our targets.
