Forwards

Serhou Guirassy
- 24 y/o Amiens CF who has attracted a lot of PL interest, and understandably so. He suits the PL. He's big, strong, has good pace and quick feet. Excellent with his back to goal. Might be available for about £15m.

Florinel Coman - Young Romanian forward we've been linked with. Quick, tricky and has goals in him. He's more of a wide forward but could possibly play behind a striker.

Karlan Grant - Quick, powerful and direct. Has scored 20 in a poor Huddersfield team. Has become a real CF having previously operated as a left winger, and will improve further.

Emmanuel Dennis - Pacy Club Brugge forward who we're already linked with.

Vedat Muriqi - An absolute handful of a target man. Kosovo international, playing for Fenerbahce. Has scored a lot and had big interest. We may still have links with Fener, and we'll be well aware of him after scouting their goalkeeper. We could offer him regular football. Our fans would love him.

Bruno Petkovic - 25 y/o Zagreb CF. Has had a breakthrough season and become Croatia's number 9. Tall, agile, skillful and an aerial threat. Capable of the spectacular.

Michael Gregoritsch - 26 y/o Austrian left footed target man who is equally good dropping deeper to link play. Has an excellent all round skill set but has struggled for goalscoring consistency since notching 13 Bundesliga goals in 2017/18. Contracted to Augsburg. Shouldn't be hard to sign. Has high potential upside.

Roman Yaremchuk - 24 y/o Gent forward and Ukraine international. Has had a breakthrough season for club and country. Tall, mobile, technically adept CF who can play in behind or out wide.

Andreas Cornelius - Robust target man who's had something of a breakthrough season at Parma.

Che Adams - Has matured since he left us. Wilder acknowledged this. I'd take him back, on the right terms.

Ante Budimir - Skillful left footed target man who's had an impressive goalscoring season at relegation threatened Mallorca.


Midfielders

Pierre Kunde
- 24 y/o Mainz CM. Cameroon international. Quite like a right footed Fleck. Forward thinking and dynamic with good dribbling, shooting and passing ability. Powerfully built and will win his share of challenges. Ideal for RCM. Could cover CM and LCM too. Watched him a lot and been very impressed. Fell out with his manager a bit, a situation we could possibly exploit. Might cost about £7m.

Ruslan Malinovskyi - Probably in dreamland with this one but he's a great player. Berge's ex Genk team mate. Wasted on Atalanta's bench. Would be good in the 10 role and give us a completely different dimension with his dribbling, passing, long range shooting ability and set piece threat. Great left foot.

Marko Rog - 24 y/o Napoli owned Cagliari loanee. Croatia international. Right footed, tireless, pacy all rounder with particularly good dribbling ability. Very comfortable RCM or LCM. Would be a great fit for us.

Seko Fofana - 25 y/o Udinese CM. Powerhouse with deceptively good technical ability and finesse. Drives forward superbly. Would be a major upgrade at RCM. Ambitious target, but so was Berge!

Conor Gallagher - Possible loan from Chelsea. Maybe even permanent. Attack minded and creative but a really impressive all rounder. Good character too. Has a big future.

Jeff Hendrick - Out of contract at Burnley. Convenient option for RCM. Irish.

Emiliano Buendia - Ambitious one. Exceptional creative talent, and the stats back it up. Good work rate too. Would enable us to play with a 10 again, operating in the right/central attacking area.

Jed Wallace - A bit like a cheaper Buendia. Versatile right sided assist machine. We've previously been interested.

Jefferson Lerma - With Bournemouth going down he might be gettable. His qualities really suit us if we could find the right place for him.

Mady Camara - 23 y/o Olympiakos CM. Already linked. Dynamic box to box type who drives forward well. Has a good shot and is quite two footed. Great fit for RCM.

Paddy McNair - Has looked Boro's best player to me. Versatile all rounder. Also cover at RCB and RWB.

Joe Rothwell - Versatile attacking midfielder at Blackburn with excellent speed, dribbling ability and technique. Would be a different option. Could be moulded into a really good player.


Defenders

Axel Disasi
- I don't think we can be spending much on defenders but if we did then this guy would be a great one. Plays for Reims. 22 y/o. Big PL links. Very solid and athletic. Decent on the ball too. Right footed.

Christoph Zimmermann - Norwich's captain in the Championship, and was one of the very best in his position. Good physically, although currently has injury issues. Ideal for CB competition.

Daniel Amartey - Previously linked. Versatile cover throughout the right/central area.

Cyrus Christie - Would cover RWB, also RCB. Decent physically and dribbles well. Another Irish international.

Alexander Djiku - 25 y/o Strasbourg CB who can play in midfield. RCB would suit him.

Jake Cooper - 6 foot 7 left footed Millwall CB who could cover CB/LCB and provide a major presence in both boxes. Was linked a while ago.


Goalkeepers

Dean Henderson
- I hope we get him on loan again but if not.....

Aaron Ramsdale - My preferred option. I'd rather our GK be British. He's impressed at Bournemouth - and will still improve a lot. Has a connection with us already. This is a move that would feel right for him and right for us

More Forwards:


Ollie Watkins
- '£18m plus bits' release clause apparently. Could resurface again if Brentford don't go up.

Ivan Toney - Great scoring record at Peterborough. Good athlete. Wilder had him at Northampton. Might be one we look at.

Callum Wilson - Maybe too old for us to spend on but he'd be ideal. You never know....

Kieffer Moore - Excellent target man. Under rated. If we want to go long more than ever we might as well have one like him in the squad!

Robin Quaison - 26 y/o Sweden international who's had a great season for Mainz, scoring 13. Has the pace, work rate, skill and flexibility to be a good signing for us. Can play in behind or central. Out of contract in a year.

Jean-Philippe Mateta - Quaison's team mate. More an out and out CF. Injury has interrupted his season. Was in demand previously. Tall, agile, quick and capable of excellent footwork. 23 y/o.

Ademola Lookman - His pace and trickery would be a big asset. He can do very impressive things. Should be leaving Leipzig.

Habib Diallo - Metz CF, and their captain. Scored 12 this season after scoring 26 in Ligue 2 previously. Spurs bid in January. But it's gone a bit quiet about him. Maybe we'd have a chance, especially if we get in Europe. Good all round athlete with tidy feet, and excellent composure and finishing ability.

Keinan Davis - Was a handful against us for Villa. 22 y/o. I think he has good potential.

Moussa Marega - 29 y/o Porto forward who wants a PL move. Can play wide or central. A threat running in behind and in the air. Strong and quick. Might not cost a big fee.

Josh King - Could this one be possible? What a signing he'd be. If we get in Europe we might be able to target players like him. Berge's Norway team mate as well

Anthony Knockaert - Has that out and out flair, unpredictability and creativity we lack. Very talented. Can produce something from nothing. He's primarily a winger but the prospect of giving him a free role around a striker or two is very interesting. Would be an excellent option on the bench. Another French lad to help Mousset, too.

Cucho Hernandez - Watford striker who's spent the season on loan at Mallorca. Flexible forward with good pace and control. Can finish. Only 21. Looks to have something about him for sure. Maybe Watford will be selling.


Rhian Brewster

Young Liverpool striker who is having an excellent second half of the season on loan at Swansea. A Premier League loan would probably suit both him and Liverpool, and he could learn a lot from training with a natural finisher like Sharp.


More Midfielders:


John Swift - His name's cropped up again. Might be a good one for the right price. But I'm not convinced he's one we should go for.

Trevoh Chalobah - One of Chelsea's army of youngsters. On loan at Huddersfield. They might sell. Physically impressive, combative and versatile player who looks decent on the ball too. Would cover a lot of positions. Good potential.

Adrien Tameze - Was linked with us in January. Now on loan at Atalanta. Don't think he'll sign permanently to be backup there. Athletic, all action type who's tidy enough in possession. Would compete for CM/RCM.

Ebere Eze - If we plan on playing with a 10 he seems one we're likely to be interested in. But maybe lacks the ability to double as a RCM.

More Defenders

Ken Sema -
26 y/o Udinese LWB, on loan from Watford. Talk of a PL move for him. Athletic attack minded wide player with a football brain and end product. Always impresses me. Based on Stevens' form we might need some serious competition, and he can also cover LCM, where he played last night in the win over Juve.

Tosin Adarabioyo - Manchester City CB who has just had a successful loan spell at Blackburn. He'll be 23 by the time next season starts, so City might be prepared to move him on, possibly for a moderate fee with a buy-back clause. He's big, strong and can play a bit, but not especially mobile. He could be moulded into a long-term successor to Egan though.

Mike van der Hoorn - Swansea CB seemingly out of contract. They rejected about £10m for him last summer. He's the type who can play CB or RCB. McBurnie is a link to him. We were linked with his team mate Rodon. Maybe we're considering van der Hoorn as well
