I've got 37M spare. Didn't want to spend for the sake of it though, advice appreciated.
Here's my squad (inc. loanees)

Lars is still at Bayer luckily, whereas Fellaini is unhappy at Manchester City.

Unless Fellaini transfer lists himself, Lars looks a good shout! Scouts suggest him as a ball winning midfielder, plus my away tactic is 451 with an anchor man..

Thanks.
Find a replacement for Walcott!! First season had 32 goals an 14 assists in 44 apps for me, then slowly got worse and worse till his last season ended with 9 goals and 3 assists in 33 apps. FInally sold him to Man City for 18 mill. I got Adrian & Destro as strikers. Also a DM like Capoue would be useful, or even Coquelin turns into a good player

Managed to get Lewandowski for the start of next season on a free. Walcott seems decent in the system I play, I'll keep an eye out for the drop in form you said about though. Will most likely shift Aubameyang or Giroud in the summer to get the right balance of strikers.

Thanks.
might also be worth looking at Steve mandanda in gk bout 11 mill

as hes a bit older hes useful for breaking scz in
id also consider sapping wilshere and hamsik around and re think the idea of 2 playmakers in mc as it could lead to lots of gols conceeded id try lars bender bwm aaron ramsey dlp support but train his tackles marking and positioning (wilshere learns tackling and positioning better)
I got Lars Bender and Capoue ....both are BOSSES! .....and Falcao but he's been getting injured alot since signing him *sigh*
Schurrle is a good shout if you can convince him to not end taking on half of the opposition with a terrible shot.
I feel that Sven Bender is a better choice than Lars. I'm using Bayern and I've managed to unsettle both brothers, making them transfer-listed by both Dortmund and Leverkusen. The asking price for Sven (11M) is much lower than Lars (17M), and both abilities aren't that much of a difference.
Id call Fierro back from loan if possible, unless hes gaining work permit?

I reckon you could do with the following;

GK - Romo/Courtois - cheap when he returns from At Madrid and in Chelsea reserves

RB/LB - Daniel Wass/Adam Matthews/Danilo(porto)

CM - Casemiro/Vidal

RW/LW - James Rodrigues

ST - Zohore/Niang/Icardi/Ademilson

Hope that helps a bit, I like my young players who get better and appreciate in value
