I would sell / release the following players:
Hart, Adrian, Reid, Carroll, Snodgrass, Antonio, Byram, Collins, Evra, Hernandez, Haksabanovic, Martinez, Makasi, Samuelsen, Oxford. Hugill too if we clearly don't trust to bring him on sooner in matches.
I can see Moyes maybe keeping Reid and Antonio. And unlike a few people who will probably want them gone, I wouldn't be surprised if Kouyate and Cresswell stay as Moyes does seem to like them 2. Both don't pick up that many injuries and are versatile enough to be able to play in 2 positions. I would personally like to see how Kouyate would get on in a better midfield too alongside a proper defensive midfielder. I still think there is a useful player there believe it or not. He has pace, can carry the ball and is pretty good in the air. He can easily chip in with more goals too if you give him the license to play further forward. Adrian too IF he is happy to stay as a back-up. But I can't see him happy to do that as he will want to play. Hence why I added him to the 'sell' list.
So we will need a minimum of:
- GK (2 IF Adrian leaves)
- 2 CH
- 2 ST
Moyes seems to like the look of that John McGinn at Hibs. He has been watched a few times, including by himself recently if I am right? So I wouldn't be surprised if he is one of the midfielders we sign. The papers seem to think he can go for only £5m, so Sully will be delighted with that. Cairney is another as well after bidding for him in January and Moyes apparently at Craven Cottage watching yesterday. Fredericks will probably be the other as a cheapish rightback. IF he continues to show promise I reckon we will try to keep Mario. The big fee signing I expect us to try and make this summer is Shaqiri if Stoke go down. I am sure Arnie will have a quiet word with him
