We spent about £28m on a winger last summer. We also bought a promising young winger in January for £10m. To say Koeman doesn't intend to play with wingers is a bold statement that doesn't really have any basis. We're building a squad to play with wingers if needed and also to play with inside forwards if necessary too. It's called flexibility but you can only have that flexibility if you have the players for it.
I was of the impression Lookman is looking to be a CF not a winger.
Bolasie, fair enough. You can add Vlasic in as well really.
But, you know why it's not that bold of a statement?
Because he isn't playing wingers.
Lennon/Lookman/Vlasic are definitely 'Plan B' for when the main way of playing isn't working.
