Michael Edwards is alleged to have discovered his equal in Canaries sporting director Stuart Webber after Liverpool had been unable to land a cut price deal for Norwich City defender Jamal Lewis this summer season.

A bid of £10 million was submitted for Lewis’ providers final week, with that supply instantly rejected. The feeling at Norwich was that the valuation positioned on Lewis by Liverpool was nowhere close to a determine they might settle for, with Webber desirous to open talks at double that quantity.

Stuart Hodge, who’s a journalist overlaying Norwich City, advised the Blood Red podcast: “To discuss Jamal Lewis as a £10 million participant is fantasy land even permitting for fluctuations because of the pandemic.

“He has that top ceiling by way of growth however he already has that defensive solidity to his sport.

“Jamal just isn’t an Andy Robertson-type full-back. He can do the identical working however he’s about as completed defensively at this second, if not a bit of bit extra so.

“It’s clear that the story emerged from the Liverpool finish and never the Norwich finish as a way of attempting to drive the asking value for Jamal down, therefore the derisory opening supply.”

In impact, Liverpool caught to their weapons and Norwich did too, with the 2 sporting administrators unprepared to budge. Liverpool all the time maintained that they’d different choices – and it seems that was right.

Norwich rejected the supply for Lewis nearly out of hand, and worth him on the similar quantity as Max Aarons, their right-back who has been linked with a £20 million swap to Bayern Munich lately.

“What Webber said to me was that is how we are going to operate going forward. They are under no pressure to sell and the player can utilise their agent, but at the end of the day, it was Norwich who gave them an opportunity.”

Webber was part of Liverpool’s employees as soon as upon a time, throughout Damien Comolli’s time answerable for the membership. Webber was answerable for Academy recruitment throughout his time at Anfield, and was part of the workforce who signed Raheem Sterling to the membership’s ranks.
