My first look team for next season based on current squad, excluding youngsters.
Best first eleven. Lloris Rose, Kaboul, Vertonghen, Walker, Dembele, Sandro, Townsend, Bale, Lennon, plus 2 new top class strikers. Technically gifted and good headers. Maybe need a top class left back if RosÃ© not up to it.
Rest of squad includes, Friedel, Naughton, Dawson, Caulker, Siggugson,Holtby and Dempsy.
To fund above and reduce payroll, I would consider selling following :-
Gomes, Gallas, Ekotto,Kumalo, Huddlestone,Parker, Livermore, Bentley, Adebayor and Defoe.
Bale moves inside to make way for Townsend. Rose at left back or maybe strengthen this position.
