Two Up Top -Two In The Middle -Two At The Back

'Two Up Top, Two In The Middle, Two At The Back' seems like a pretty simple Barclays Premier League manager's shopping list, a mighty expensive one though! Given current transfer prices those six positions could cost upwards of £150-200 Million to fill. Manuel Pellegrini doesn't have the budget of last season, this is the tricky 'second album' season for the Chilean who, along with Mario Husillos, has got to work his magic on the seven loaves and fishes transfer kitty that he has been given in order to bring in the wholesale changes required to take the club to the level he believes is achievable.

There are already a few 'floaters' when it comes to possible arrivals at the London Stadium, so we thought we would cover each credible option in separate articles, one potential signing we haven't mentioned for a while is Japanese midfielder Shinji Kagawa, the vastly experienced 30-year-old ex-Manchester United player spent last season on loan from Borussia Dortmund at Besiktas where he scored four goals in 14 games which kept up his excellent career record of scoring a goal every three games for club and country..

Opinion: At 30 years of age Kagawa hardly fits in to the 'young' blue print that Manuel Pellegrini and Mario Husillos are targeting, however he has never had continuous fitness issues and might be a very useful stop gap player, but if he does arrive it will be as a cheap alternative for Andre Gomes. - Ed
