Maybe this thread could be more about our general transfer "strategy," rather than just lists of players we won't get.
We all know that there are a couple of holes in our squad, and I would say the following would be how I personally prioritise them:
1. Right wide forward - we absolutely need top quality out wide. We have lacked that for years, and I would put 60% of whatever budget we have into this one position, if it will get us a young, pacy, goalscoring winger. Preferably someone who can play across the 3 in the 4-2-3-1, but primarily a right-sided player.
2. Striker - again, ideally a younger player, who, even if he's not capable of playing as the starting #9 for a title-winning side at present, would be in a year or two. Luuk de Jong seems like he could be this player
3. Central midfielder - I'd like to be greedy and say an Alonso replacement, but we're not Man City so we won't have the money for a player that good. Perhaps we could go for a player like Charlie Adam, but better? Elm could fall into this category, possibly.
4. Left wide forward - again, we need to bolster our wide options. I doubt Downing will go, but another option besides him and Sterling for the left would be good. A cheaper, younger player with potential, perhaps; I would rather we put as much money as possible into just one option, so if we can't get a Hoilett-type on the cheap, then just leave this one for later.
5. Centre back - This is a bit greedy, and we could almost certainly leave this to a future window, but if we got a youngish CB who can also cover the CM spot from #3, it would be excellent. Someone like Phil Jones (hey, don't shoot me, I actually think he's going to be a good player) or we could poach Vertonghen, perhaps.
Anyway, that's where I stand. I suspect we'll prioritise more as follows: attacking midfielder, central midfielder, winger, striker. I just hope whoever we bring in is flexible enough to play several different formations so we're not locked into one setup (as we are when Downing plays, for example).
