£40m is nuts. No fucking way we should make that deal, even if we free up the funds.
Somewhere out there, there's a genuinely good midfielder who can be bought for less than £40m. Go find that guy instead and make due with Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison, and maybe even Sigurdsson (if Silva is willing to experiment) up top for the rest of the season.
I still say we'll score plenty with some control in midfield.
