I think we had a proven back up for Coleman in JJK. When
Seamus was injured JJK let us down only once. He filled in admirably. Definitely one position we shouldn't have had to spend money on.
If we keep everything intact from last year then probably the biggest need is still a starting quality forward (I like Calvert-Lewin's development a lot but it's too much to ask of him to be the focal point for the whole season, at the moment).
To kick on and push the top four we need to add a right back to push Coleman, a future Gueye, plus one more wide player. A further backup forward and a backup for Sigurdsson would then be the icing on the cake. So four quality additions needed, with two more backups as very nice to haves.
If we could go into the season with the following (we can sell/loan/release all other senior players, as far as I'm concerned) then we're in really good shape:
Pickford / Lossl
Coleman / [Other]
Digne / Baines
Keane / Zouma / Mina / Holgate
Gueye / [Other] / Gomes / Schneiderlin / Davies
Bernard / [Other]
Richarlinson / Lookman
Sigurdsson [Backup from Bernard / Davies]
Calvert-Lewin / [Other] / [Other]
