So is this partly a swap deal?
I like Hoever as well but I think right back is his best position and let's be honest, he won't be starting for us at that position in pretty much forever. He does play center back as well but I think the outside is his stronger position.
Klopp and Edwards may see Taki and Jota as 2/3 of our front line in 2-3 years time, so if this helps us get the ones they want in, it makes sense. There is no point in stockpiling players these days. Part of "cashing in" on young talent could be a reduced fee for someone else.
