A £10million offer was rejected by the Championship club with West Ham and Southampton also interested in the right-back
But £15m to simply compete with a player who has played every minute of our season doesn’t add up. Hence why I suspect he’s been identified to play a different role.I think the one area we don’t have 2 players for is RWB so it makes sense to me if Baldock gets some competition
We need good competition, he’s versatile, this makes a lot of sense
Robinson has tremendous potential and pace to burnWe've all mentioned that Baldock's play in the final third let's him down. Maybe we're looking to upgrade? Would be difficult mind, as Baldock (defensively) has been instrumental this season.
I'd like to see us have a look at Antonee Robinson on the other side too. We didn't have a strong option to replace Enda when he was in terrible form after the lockdown.
If he comes surely it’s to play in midfield. No way we’re paying £12m for a second choice RB

I wouldn't be so sure that he would be second choice. As good as Baldock has been, he doesn't create many chances, nor score. To say he is an out and out RWB his attacking output has always not been as good as it could be.
Maybe we think there is a better net gain to be made in putting in a stronger attacking player in that position. Sure we might be exposed a little bit more, but with Berge and Basham covering that side, maybe we can afford to be a little more adventurous. We need to create more chances next season or we won't progress.
Have a look at his positivity on the ball below.
Great going forward. Cannot defend for toffeeHe’s class lads, much better end product than Baldock. I’m a big Baldock fan and he has been brilliant but he gets in brilliant positions and wastes it with bad crosses way too often. If you for one minute think Baldock is going to be upset at being on the bench or fighting for a short you are definitely mistaken.
