Fun with numbers: The 25 man squad list and summer transfers

With summer upon us, it's transfer silly season. Rumors come flying fast, and hard, so to make things easier, let's count it out. What we have, and what we need, is limited by that 25 man squad cap (plus u21 kids so Sterling, Wisdom, Ibe, etc don't need to be added). So as much as we'd love to add 3 CBs, 2 RWs, 3 CMs, 2 LBs, a GK, and a ST and without selling anyone (but Downing), it ain't possible. So what do we have? Let's count...

1) Steven Gerrard

2) Lucas Leiva

3) Daniel Agger

4) Pepe Reina

5) Brad Jones

6) Glen Johnson

7) Jose Enrique

8) Joe Allen

9) Luis Suarez

10) Philippe Coutinho (qualifies with the u21 group, thanks kindred)

11) Daniel Sturridge

12) Jordan Henderson

13) Fabio Borini

14) Martin Kelly

15) Peter Gulacsi

16) Jonjo Shelvey

17) Martin Skrtel

18) Stewart Downing

19) Sebastian Coates

20) Oussama Assaidi

21) Jay Spearing

22) Andy Carroll

23) Dani Pacheco

24) Updated-Kolo Toure

25) Updated-Iago Aspas

So, we've got room for 2 make that 1 more with Toure signing on no one without first selling now that Aspas is in the mix make that 1 spot 2 spots open with Coutinho not counting as an u21 player and Gulacsi gone to Salzburg, plus spots from whoever gets sold or loaned (Carroll, Spearing, Pacheco, Coates, etc).

And feel free to tell me where I'm wrong, and what u21 players should be here but aren't.

Edited on June 7 to reflect the Gulacsi move.
