I have the feeling, based mostly on rumors and reports I must admit, that roman will not cheap out this summer but rather will try to add some real quality names (rather than the likes of zaha, drinkwater, carroll etc we've been hearing ... and buying)... According to the telegraph, we are looking at spend big this summer and that the club will sell a bunch of deadwood to do this:

That really is music to my ears because in the end of the day bar selling Hazard, that is exactly what we need to do in the summer. Sell the deadwood and aquire proper players in the right positions.

OL are playing Stratsbourg on BT sports at the moment and Fekir is by far the best player on the pitch once again. An absolute beast of a player. I'd be gutted if the scouse get him.

While I absolutely love Fekir as a player, I don't think he fits into our side. He'd fit into our current 3-4-3 or 3-5-2 (albeit at the expense of Eden) like a glove but the thing is that can't see us continuing with a 3 man backline next season. The kind of names we are linked with seldom play with a 3 at the back formation which leaves us with the standard 4-3-3 formation deployed by Sarri or the 4-4-2 or 4-2-3-1 deployed by Jardim. Don't personally think we will hire Enrique thankfully. So in a 4-3-3, Fekir will have a hard time fitting in as he is a classic second striker/ No#10. You could argue that he can be played in a midfield three but I don't think that gets the best out of him. In a 4-4-2 or 4-2-3-1, Fekir will be in direct competition with Eden unless Eden goes back to the left wing which I don't think he should as he seems to have lost a burst of acceleration which made him so deadly on the wing. Maybe the No#10/second striker role is the future for Eden. Due to this, I think Fekir might create a headache for our next manager if we sign him (which we are never going to lol) as he is nowhere near as effective on the wing or in midfield.

I propose that we go after Thauvin, Yeah I know he flopped at Newcastle but he has arguably been the second or third best player in the French league this season and is a winger very much in the Robben mold with good workrate. He brings the kind of stuff our team has been missing lately.
