If Mignolet goes then we need a new keeper, as the youth keepers are not yet ready to play second choice.We have quite a few players we can easily sell to fund further investment. While some will have contracts expiring at least wages will be freed to some extent. Players who by and large don't feature. Not necessarily them all but there's some fat which can be trimmed.
Mignolet, Bogdan, Matip, Clyne, Moreno, Randall, Markovic, Milner, Grujic, Ejaria, Lallana, Chirivella, Kent, Wilson, Ojo, Solanke, Origi, Sturridge, Ings.
If Matip goes then a new defender is essential especially with Lovren's injury problems.
If Clyne and Moreno both leave then at least one full back has to be bought, who can cover both sides and one can be promoted from the academy.
Milner will need a replacement, as will Lallana and Sturridge (Brewster and Solanke not yet ready or not good enough).
Wilson should definitely not be sold - he's a great talent and can play a vital role as a squad player (I think he can play on both wings).
Solanke should be sent on loan since he has shown some signs of promise especially last pre-season, he just needs to get games under his belt.
