G'day Ed002,

I was wondering if at all, which areas we would be improving in the team in Jan.

Sorry if you have already addressed this.

{Ed002's Note - It is not as simple as saying we will improve these positions in January - folks don't want to sell there is no allocated money and squad sizes are relevant. Going forward the club want a LB which might be possible in January - they also want, a LW, a CB, a Striker and a midfield player. That is of course a summers worth and whilst players are identified as targets getting folks to agree to a sale is very difficult.}

I'm a little surprised about a LW, I thought Martial and Rashford and doing great there atm. Plus Andreas Pereira likes to play from that side.

I would have thought a RW would be more of an issue. With Mata possibly leaving, Mkhitaryan's form being very inconsistent and Lingard never quite doing enough to fully be considered first choice material.

Also a striker is an interesting one. We have Lukaku, Rashford and Martial who all favour playing as a striker. I expect Zlatan will leave in the summer, but do we really need four strikers for one position?

{Ed002's Note - The club have been chasing Ivan Perisic as a left winger and have a list of other possible LW options in mind.}

The problem is just a lack of width. Martial, rashford, lingard, Mata, mhiki all prefer to be central. The only natural wide players we have are young an Valencia playing full back.
