Gary Cahill on a free? A good squad addition I feel.

Neal Maupay? Smith knows his game. A good choice if we don't get Tammy?

this might sound heretical, but I have a few doubts about Tammy - he hasn't looked really effective for a whilebut of course, that might be down to  not fully recovering yet from his arm injury

Mr Underhill, I actually agree. For the 25 million that has been touted, I wonder if there might be better, foreign options. That said, at 21 years of age and under this coaching staff, he is also worth a go too.

I wonder what now for Hogan, Davis, McCormack and Kodjia? I’d keep Jimmy Danger to be honest but think we might sell for the right price.

I'd certainly look to sign a top striker and i would also try to bring in Tammy for around £20m. 21 and will get better.
Maupay would be a good option if we could get Tammy.

Must keep Davis.  Tammy does not seem to be fully committed to football.  He gives the impression that he does not have a passion for the game he is good at..  For £25 million you might expect more substance.

Agree on Keinan, meant to add him in above post.
Have to say I haven't noticed that with Tammy.

Tammy isn't a premier league player and isn't worth £25-30m. He did his job for us but for me it's thank you and goodbye.

I suspect there will be a few surprises up our sleeve, and no-one will come in unless they fit the model. Time for Pitarch to do his thing

Assuming we can't get Axel, I'd sign Mings, Hause, El Ghazi and Tammy if possible.

On top of that I'd be looking at Targett, Chalobah, Kalvin Phillips, Lolley, Maupay, McBurnie,

I suggested the last player a while ago and got shot down in flames. What I want to see is the next Maupuy, not paying through the nose for the real one.

If we have Chester, Mings, Tuenzebe and Hause for next season we won't need him but otherwise might be worth a punt.

It's bazaar on Abraham, his loan spell can be considered as nothing but a huge success, 20 odd goals and a big part in our promotion but despite this and the fact that he's a likeable chap I wouldn't want to see us spend more than £20m either and possibly not even that much. His overall game is god awful at times and I can't see him doing much in the PL unless he's getting a load of chances in the box every match. Other than that it's like having 10 men at times, we need someone who can make the ball stick up there.

We certainly need to learn from our dismal recruitment of 2011-2015. I lost count of the number of players we signed, with one being a massive success in Christian Benteke. The best of the rest was Vlaar, Bacuna, Keane on loan, Geye and Ayew. The rest ranged from the disappointing to the disastrous.

Hogan - season long loan somewhere, anywhere
Davis - I'd keep him but needs regular football on loan
McCormack - gastric band surgery
Kodjia - one year left on contract but needs selling.

Abraham is a very talented player, needs to physically toughen up a lot though.

Che Adams is one Id look at to replace Kodjia, very talented and mobile forward

Agree about Abraham the only proviso is that I have a suspicion he may have been playing injured.
there are plenty of quality players overseas that's where I would be looking.
