165 mil sounds like an awful lot of money to spend in a transfer window
if lukaku leaves then we will obviously need a new striker, we also need a new keeper,
The defence is fine imo, there are no weak links there, baines and coleman are the best full backs in the league on their day and jags is our captain and stones our future captain. Mori is an exceptional replacement who is now an Argentine International player.
If we have injuries in defence we can always rely on youth like we did at the end of last season, they played exceptionally well especially in the game against norwich.
The midfield does need to be improved imo, we cannot rely on Barkley to be our playmaker constantly which is why I think maybe bringing tadic / mane from southampton would be a good idea
lennon is a good player but i would not have him over deulefeu or mirallas. with potentially osman, pienaar, gibson and mcgeady leaving in the summer or being loaned out we haven't got a strong backup if injuries hit our midfield. Barry is also getting on these days.
if lukaku leaves we are a bit weak up front with only kone, niasse and tarashaj. I am excited about the prospect of tarashaj though and hope he has a good euro's (if he gets any game time).
so basically i think need a goalkeeper, a creative midfielder, a winger, 2 strikers
that's 5 players with £165.00 mil budget meaning on average each player would cost 33 million . that just seems crazy given that lukaku is our highest transfer signing at 28 mil.
take into account koeman may sign a few squad players to replace the outgoing lukaku, osman, hibbert, pienaar, howard etc.. then you would still be looking at at least 25 mil per player and that's not including the money we recoup from player sales.
