I'm not sure I'm willing to proclaim a top 4 is inevitable at this stage.

Suarez should stay, but that's not set either.

Even with him, if they don't sort out the backline, they're not finishing in the top 4. At minimum, they need a top level central defender, and probably could use a left back as well. Ashley Williams need not apply. If they spend 12 on him, they're bonkers. I sadly think they have the fools in charge to do it.

They also still need a defensive midfielder, probably a third strike option, and I still think they'll look to upgrade over Downing if they have any brains. I would seriously consider another midfielder as well, but that's me.

That bill of sale is at least 30-35 million, probably more. If you move on Skrtel, it's a bit easier, but that's two defenders you have to replace.
