Zaha would be the missing piece in th puzzle, then Barkley to replace Sissoko.
Done.
Depends on Lamela. Only think we need one player to replace Sissoko. We're completely set in CM. We have Dele and Son for one attacking mid spot, it's just the cover/bench option for Eriksens position. Out of those two if Lamela returns to fitness I'd choose Zaha.

If Lamela returns and is in form we might not even need anyone, numbers wise we'll end up with someone who never plays unless real injury crisis. Guess it's better to be safe than sorry though but I'd prefer this emergency cover to go to Edwards than someone on 80k a week.

Not sure if Zaha is the answer anymore as we've moved more to playing wing backs now?

Unless we plan to play him more centrally although then Son is first to come in should Dele or Eriksen not be available and we should hopefully have Lamela soon if he can recover.

But we don't stick to a right formation and rightly So, the beauty of this team is that it's u predictable and can line up in a number of different ways.

I presume if we got Zaha we would look to play him more flexibly and with freedom than being stuck out on wing.

He could even play up front alongside Kane kinda like Son does I guess.

The guy i'd like us to take a punt on would be Marko Pjaca from Juventus, went there did his knee i believe, but an absolute beast of a wide player with pace and power in abundance. As they have so many attacking wide players i'm not sure he will see much game time as he is returning now. Would keep on eye on him and how he recovers from the injury.

For me, if Dembele can't play much next year. I feel with someone in the Pjaca, Pulisic, possibly Zaha mould and Kovacic. Barkley would be nice if cheap. But we have a real settled squad and some real potential waiting in the wings. Kovacic would be an excellent CM option if Dembele hip really limits game time and the other three, offer the direct play of Son which we don't really have and another pacey option.

I really think following our European performances, we will really be taken seriously by potential transfer targets this summer, plus one of the best stadiums and managers in world football help.

Still buzzing we actually beat RM last night.

Wonder how much it would take to get Pulisic.
