I think we will sign this player as cover for Downing's replacement personally. Him and player x to compete for the right wing slot.
Cant see why we can have Aspas, Downing, and your player X in our squad. Suso may go on loan, Assaidi should be sold, and maybe Shelvey may go (loan/sale), so there's definitely space.
Suarez, Sturridge, Borini, Sterling, Coutinho, Downing, Aspas, new player. That's a good line.
Lucas, Gerrard, Henderson, Allen for the CM places.
