Adam Forshaw says how much Liverpool could sell Ben Davies for in summer

Adam Forshaw has told the My Conversations With The Pope podcast that he thinks Liverpool have produced an “unbelievable” bit of business to sign defender Ben Davies from Preston – but thinks they could sell him in the summer for a bigger fee.

Davies, 25, joined Liverpool as one of two deadline-day signings at Anfield – along with Turkey international Ozan Kabak from Bundesliga side Schalke. It is believed that Davies joined for £1.6million, initially playing £500,000.

The left-footed centre-back was an unused substitute on Wednesday night as Liverpool suffered a 1-0 defeat to Brighton. He could make his debut against Manchester City this weekend, as Jurgen Klopp has a decision to make at centre-back.

Leeds midfielder Forshaw, who came through Everton’s academy but is from a family of Liverpool supporters, commented on the signing of Davies. He thinks it is an unbelievable investment, but reckons he could be sold in the summer for £10million.

“I’ve played against Davies, don’t know much about Kabak,” Forshaw told the podcast. “It can’t fill fans with much hope, but as an investment, Davies from Preston is unbelievable. Liverpool are a business, they are a massive company.

“They got him for a down payment for £500,000. That’s nothing is it. If it doesn’t work for him, and Liverpool choose to sell him in the summer, they can get £10million for him. You trust Liverpool’s recruitment, you trust Michael Edwards.”

TBR’s view – Davies deal is a no-brainer

Forshaw has it spot on. Signing Davies that cheap means that if Liverpool do not think he is good enough and decide to cash in come the summer, they can make a huge profit on him. Indeed, at times, Davies has been rated in the region of £10million.

He might even impress in the mean time enough to convince Klopp to keep him at Anfield. But if he is sold in the summer, there is no question that Edwards will make a profit on the defender. Either way, it is win win for Liverpool.
