With so little time left in the window, I was curious how our numbers looked. 25 man squad max, 17 foreign players max. Well, we're nowhere close. And looking at an extremely youthful squad at the moment. By my count, we have more u21 qualifying members of the team (13), than homegrown players (9) or foreign bred players (10). This is going off the names on the official team list.
As we all know, another CB would be nice, if not two. Perhaps a FB just in case Martin Kelly's fitness issues linger too long. We'll need a new stable it seems to handle the long standing desire for a physical specimen type DM to back up Lucas. And of course, excellent attackers are always welcome. Oh, it also seems we want another keeper, because why not?
As things stand right now, the squad has tons of room for to add senior players to in all those areas, and with just 10 players over 21 who wouldn't count as homegrown (9 if you didn't include the injured Seb Coates), there is more than enough room to splurge on talent with an -inho or an -enko in their names.
The squad (with a * indicating homegrown, or # for guys who can be left off as u21)
K - Mignolet, Jones*, Ward#
D - Agger, Enrique, Kolo, Cissokho, Skrtel, Sakho, Johnson*, Kelly*, Ilori#, Wisdom#, Flanagan#, McLaughlin#, Sama#, Jones#, Coates
M - Gerrard*, Lucas, Henderson*, Allen*, Coutinho#, Alberto#
A - Sturridge*, Suarez, Aspas, Moses*, Sterling#, Ibe#, Yesil#, Morgan#, Sinclair#
Out on loan: Reina, Borini, Suso, Robinson, Assaidi, Coady, Ngoo, Adorjan, Mukendi
