Tavares isn't a failure. We signed him for 8M, and will likely sell him for more after his performances in Marseille.The whole Lokonga, Tavares and Vieira experiments have failed miserably. Both Mikel and Edu should be blamed.
We will get a lb, cb, cm and a forward. I expect 4 signingsHard to know where we'll strengthen this summer.
I'm torn between getting a winger, or getting a striker. Jesus is so good that i feel he could be effective anywhere, whether its CF, LW or RW. The Trossard signing has made signing a Martinelli upgrade difficult. On the RW, we know Saka plays most games, so signing a Diaby or such doesn't seem likely?
Like the Trossard signing, the Jorginho one means its unlikely we'll go back for Caicedo or sign another 6? Especially with Elneny signing a new contract aswell. LCM looks like a position we will target. RCM i think we are covered, despite me not rating Vieira.
We'll need a LB, pretty sure Tierney will leave. I'd like us to sign a RB so we can then use Tomiyasu or white as a CB rather than Holding.
Whilst i'd like us to improve, i am realistic, we aren't signing anyone here, not unless Turner wants to leave for first team football.

I would not be surprised if we get Elye Wahi. 20 year old French striker. Very talented player
I don’t think nketiah or Balogun are at the talent level needed. I don’t think Arteta is the kind of guy that stays loyal to any player and if he can improve on them he will.We have Balogun & Eddie why buy him? Also we need a RB not LB, unless KT leaves but I think he'll want another season in the CL.

The eye test less so. I think he is similar to nketiah and both can’t really strike a ball. Some of the goals he scored would never happen in the plMy take is that we will target a RB, a forward who can play as striker & RW, CM to compete with Xhaka, LB only if KT leaves.
We filled LCB, CM, & left sided forward spots in January. Tomi will be retained as utility defender I'm sure.
The Eddie/Balo conundrum will be interesting to see what happens there. Would be annoying not to see how Balo could work for us. He pedigree seems higher than Eddie's.
