Lamine Kone and Ben Chillwell perhaps for defensive cover.

Not sure about Kone but if we sign Chilwell it won't be as cover, he's already good enough to be a starting lb for us before Baines and would probably cost 25m+ in today's market

Chilwell doesn’t get in ahead of Fuchs btw.

Just a word of caution re any assumed certainty of getting rid of Baines etc.

Fuchs starts ahead of him for the long throws, Chilwell is definitely the better player

Rooney 8
Niasse 6
Calvert Lewin 5
Baines 3
Sigurdsson 3
Williams 2
Keane 1
Gueye 1
Vlasic 1

The only problem I see there is a noticeable lack of goals from a wide position.

We've predominantly played some sort of 4-3-3 this season so you'd hope to see more goals from Lennon/Mirallas/Bolasie etc going forward

How old is Lennon? Or Arjen Robben? Or Ronaldo?

Just because a player turns 30 doesn't mean they suddenly lose their pace

Wiki and Transfermarkt say he is either a CB or RB

Like every other player we sign from them

I hope the Bernat link isn't just journalists putting 2 and 2 together, with us needing a left back and him needing a move for the Spain WC squad. He would be a good addition - right age, good on the ball, pacey, left footed.

He's not looked pacey on the few occasions I've seen him

Reporter: More to come in this window
SA: Errr, no, I don't think so. i think that, erm, we would be more, in, in, in the terms of where we are at the moment moving players on. think that the squad is too big. Erm, there's a, there's thirty, thirty three players here at the moment and i think that, from my point of view, that means that, err, reducing that squad or those squad numbers is important for, for me and the football club and the players that may, that may leave. We don't know which, or who they are because you're waiting for other clubs to come and, erm, show an interest, er, but certainly i think, moving a few players on is, is the order for us


That's ad verbatim and i transcribed it myself.

You forgot to say FACT so it doesn't count as truth

If we're going to continue with the 'only signing players I've seen on Sky' policy, we should go for Mooy from Huddersfield

Surely somewhere there is a left footed left back who we can loan for 6 months?
