    In: Alves, Salibah, Dunk, Tierney, Ceballos (loan), Matuidi, Zaha, Soares.

    Out: Cech, Ospina, Lichtsteiner, Kolasinac, Mustafi, Chambers, Bieleik, El Nenny, Mkhi, Nketiah (loan), Welbeck, Ramsey, Bennacer.

    The experience of Matuidi and Alves would be invaluable, low to no fees and less money than Ramsey and Lichtstenier were on. Dunk and Tierney need no adaption time at all and instantly our defensive structure on paper looks so much more solid.

    Ceballos to come in for a ear with a point to prove. If he gets us into the Champions league and goes back to Madrid, it's cost us little and gives us a platform to target a top cm with cl football, even If it's not Ceballos himself.

    Signing Alves gives us the option of pushing Bellerin up in a 4-4-2 for some games (essential when your best two players are centre forwards). We can also play Nelson wide as long as Zaha plays on the opposite wing. It would be great to have genuine width. Soares is unrealistic but I get the impression that he can play either flank or as a false 9. That gives us so much versatility. He could be a long term Auba replacement and render Özil no longer needed.


    ** For some games It's laca or PEA and Soares/Nelson go wide.

    Silly season wishlist:

    Bale and Ceballos on loan from Madrid. 10m in loan fees.
    Salibah, Dunk and Tierney for our defence. 80m
    Zaha. 50m


    Every team in the league would be terrified of us.

    In the real world, swap Bale for Pepe and sell Mkhi and Iwobi to fund it.

    Swap Thauvin for Zaha and put Laca or Auba upfront and that would be a seriously exciting line up. Relatively doable as well. I doubt we'd put 5 new players in our front 6 though.

    Is Chaka retired? And why are Laca and Auba in our under 23 team?

    This is the wish list thread. Of course I would wish to sell some of our players.

    That midfield would get bullied week in week out.

    Difficult to win games playing 5 men down, but would be exciting going forward no doubt.

    I agree it might be a shrewd signing, tho Lichsteiner has scarred me a bit when it comes to signing aging full-backs.

    Could turn out that way.

    I've just always liked Juanfran.

    Obviously Lich turned out to be a failure but I do still think it was a shrewd signing to make at the time. Didn’t work out but not all players do

    I don't see much goals in the front 3. Quite a small team aswell and not terribly quick either. Would probably do quite well in some games and terribly in others. Good technical players but no other outstanding feature. Would get overrun quickly in more intense games.

    The 2nd lineup same deal. A Much quicker lineup to be fair and potentially dangerous like 1st lineup but that midfield would get mown over in a heartbeat. Imbalanced. I like that 2nd lineup, but it would be much better with Nketiah or John-Jules at the top. Hutchinson does not need to be there as he isn't even ready for U18 football, I don't know why you keep including him in immediate 1st team discussion at this point. Willock next to Smith could work.

    I am worried that we are not going to sign a first team player this summer. Absolutely cheap owner.

    We cannot even get Tierney over the line and he costs around 20m.

    We got Ceballos for free. I'd like for us to spend whatever budget we have on one good player rather than two mediocre.

    That should be a Winger or a CB. I'd rather get a Winger (zaha type fast technical) than a CB. I have good hopes for Holding and Chambers.
