Sima - Try another Championship loan and see if he has more luck with injuries
Zeqiri - Always looked decent from the little I saw, but I don't think Potter rates him. Will be sold
Connolly - I think the club will try very hard to ship him out
Andone - I can't remember, did we pay him off? Does he have another year on his deal? If so, he'll be back for pre season then we'll get rid any way we can
Mitoma - Likely will join the squad and challenge for a place
Khadra- Likely will join the squad and challenge for a place
Ferguson - Get him out on loan, he needs to be playing. Same with Tolaj
Sarmiento - I'm going to go against the grain and say the club will make the surprising decision to sent him on a foreign loan for the first half of next season
Undav - In and challenging for first team place
Maupay - This could go either way. Could be offers from abroad, but just have a feeling he'll sign and stay
Trossard - I think he'll go
Welbeck - Most likely he'll wait around for offers then take up another year. Clearly we can't rely on him fitness-wise. Best viewed as a player that every game we get out of him is a bonus.
The conventional wisdom is that this is miles too few attacking options to start a PL season with and the ones we have are prone to injury, horrific losses of form or are totally untried, so we need at least another two in. However this record has been played before.
I also think we'll sign our usual couple of forwards for the development squad and loan them straight out
On Welbeck I’ve seen reports that the extension can be instigated by either party, so we could tie him down for a year, all be it, open to offers
